1. Great win today for our seniors and what a way to end our home games!
2. Did we really win that game big or did Arkansas lose that game big with all the penalties and turnovers? We were no where near stopping Tyler Wilson in the first quarter. He was 10 for 10 on his first 10 passes,
3. The players said they made adjustments and went more to man coverage and starting jamming receivers at the line of scrimmage to help disrupt Arkansas passing game. Many of us in this forum have been SCREAMING TO THE TOP OF OUR LUNGS for the defense to do that for the past two years. Why are the coaches just now figuring out that works when ever other defense in the SEC knows that works?
4. Why dont we use Nick Griffin more?
5. Why do our sweep option plays take so long to develop?
6. We dont match up well for the tsun game.
7. We didnt play LSU, TAMU, or Bama nearly as tough as tsun played them.
8, Will we be outcoached next week? If tsun jumps on us quickly and dont make stupid turnovers do we have an offense that can score quickly enough or consistently enough to beat tsun?
We had a really great game today and I am on cloud nine right now. Its the first time we've had a win going into rivalry week since what...07 or so? This is a great feeling and I am really proud of our boys for giving us a GREAT WIN!
However I know many if not most of you are thinking what Im thinking and I gotta tell ya...Im on pins and needles when it comes to next weeks game.

Last time we had a win going into rivalry week was 08...didn't help us much that year.
Speak for yourself. TSUN played Bama, LSU and txamu well but that has absolutely nothin to do with MSU. The speed option that you felt took too long to develop worked every time but once. Sounds pretty successful to me. MSU doesn't match up well with passing spread teams like A&M, Arkansas and UT but yet we are 2-1 in those games. OM has one advantage over us that won't change for 372 days and that home field advantage. Other than that, I'm not really too concerned. They will score a TD unlike last year but it won't be enough to win the game. We will win the turnover margin and therefore win the game.

"They call me crazy until they find out I'm right"
One good thing is tsun is VERY banged up. Wallace has a sore shoulder and their defense has been gutted with injuries. Like last year if we jump on them early they might not have much fight left in them.
But I wouldnt count on that.

So which dorm will be hosting this year?
Less than 20% of what you said is what most of us are thinking. Ill what til tomorrow until your manic side shows back up and pumps sunshine
$50 bet with Rebels10 - Best of 3 Egg Bowls
**the $50 goes to others schools athletics dept**
Apparently you are incapable of simple math. The majority of the new posts and threads that have appeared since the Arkansas game are about exactly what I have covered in this post..
You should focus less on what you perceive to be other people's manic nature and focus more on your own propensity to offer up nothing worthy of reading in this forum and your habit of personally attacking other members in the forum for no reason.

Anyone who has been a football fan for more than 10 years has learned that comparative scores against
common opponents is practically useless in predicting game outcomes. Teams as a rule tend to play
better against better competition, but also tend to fold quicker when a better team gets them down, because
they don't really expect to come back. A couple of turnovers, particularly early, can make a large
difference in the way that an inferior team plays a better team. Also, sometimes an early scare can make
a superior team "rev up" against an inferior team.
Also, order of teams played is a factor. For instance, playing 3 top 10 teams in a row, you are not likely
to win the third one.
When you catch a team is also important. For instance, TAM has played better in their last 5 games than
they did in their first 5 games, due to experience with a freshman quarterback, in particular in reducing
turnovers. Tennessee and Arkansas seem to have packed it in for the year. LSU after playing Alabama
and us the last 2 weeks, was not really "up" for the Ole Miss game, although LSU is more dangerous now
that Mettenberger has developed, than they were early when they scored 12 points on Auburn.
Overall records are much better indicators, but can also be deceptive due to strength of schedules
I'll go with the team who has the best overall talent, depth, and player development more often than not.
Quit wasting time analyzing this game and enjoy the season. We pay good money to handle our team. You only need to say one thing, Go to hell Ole Miss. Put some funny stuff on the blog. Your not coaches. Remember the four words if you love State.
I think thats actually 5 words! lol
but anyway analyzing sports and thinking we know everything and the coaches dont know anything is what men do, thats why there are like 1000 different ESPN channels and shows...we just cant help it. good advice though!
Go to Hell Ole Miss!!!
