You have no favorite boards.
Yes...my first few threads on this site were very optomistic and positive about our team.
Then we played Bama. And while I was shocked at how our team didnt even show up in that game...I still had hope for our boys because at that time several commentators on ESPN were talking about how Bama might just be capable of beating some NFL teams.
Then we played TAMU.....and were never even on the field. We were outcoached and outmanned in every single facet of that game.....and I WENT OFF. I went off on how pathetic our coaching and playing was in that game. And I was very curious as to why no postgame interviews were offered for that game.
Some of you listened...most of you ignored me and simply game me a thumbs down. Sooner or later you are going to have to stop being political on this board and listen to people...get your heads out of the ground and out of your ass and stop using the thumbs down arrow like some third grade weapon and LISTEN to people who say things you might not like...sometimes the truth hurts.
1. Dan Mullen is unproven as an SEC coach. With the exception of 2010 his defenses have sucked and he has not demonstrated the ability to make adjustments mid-game or midseason and has not demonstrated the ability to beat any decent team with a winning record.
2. Our recruiting has sucked from DAY 1 of the Mullen regime, Vanderbilt..yes Vanderbilt is outplaying State and out recruiting State....and they are basically the Harvard of the SEC. Inexcusable.
3. Sooner or later Mississippians are going to recognize that the confederate flag flying over our capital hurts our recruiting...so you guys may say..."it aint hurting tsuns recruiting!!". Actually, it is. tsun has Eli Manning, Archie Manning, the Blind Side guys, Duece McAllister and payola and the walk of champions helping them recruit day in and day out...and we dont. You guys can keep putting your head in the sand as long as you live and pretend for as long as you want that confederate symbols dont hurt recruiting in Mississippi...as a parent of a kid who attends State now...I can tell you first hand it does.
Does that explain why we got embarassed in Oxford today? Not in its entirety...but its a start. The gimmicks are over, the emotion of a new coach is over...now its time to line up and play football. And if your recruiting sucks, and if your defense and coaching and special teams suck year after year you find yourself where we are today.
Two Mississippi teams battling not to be the laughing stock of the SEC....going back and forth every year in an attempt to gain some modicum of respectability in a conference and in a world that has moved past what most people in Mississippi still hold on to.
Downrate the thread all you want...or recognize that there needs to be change to change what happened tonight...or....
Get used to this feeling cause there's plenty more waiting on us where this came from.
Was that flag calling plays tonight,does the flag make us play soft on d
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. -
Dan Mullen owns this state and the TSUN!!
