Missouri will rock special decals Thursday in honor of Mike Leach.

Ever since Mike Leach died following a massive heart attack, the college football world has seen an incredibly outpouring of support for the coach.

It seems like every single time you open Twitter or read a new story somewhere, a new person or team is paying homage to the former Mississippi State coach.

There’s no doubt Leach impacted a ton of lives. You only hear great stories about him, and now, Missouri will be the latest team to honor him.

You don’t get to choose how people remember you in death. All you get to do is live a life that hopefully impacts people for the better. There’s no doubt Mike Leach did just that, and that’s why the reaction has been so powerful since he died earlier in December.

Swing your sword high and never stop being yourself. It’s the greatest life lesson Leach ever left the world.
