Lifelong Alabama Crimson Tide fan from Huntsville, AL, with a deep seated hatred for anything auburn, so strong in fact I had to go all the way to Starkville, MS to get my undergrad degree in Forestry with Wildlife Management at Mississippi State University. So goes my parent's and scholarship money so goes my loyalty. I am happily bleeding Maroon and White, ringing my cowbell, and yelling Hail State and Go To Hell Ole Miss.

Stromboli's is one of my favorite pizza places which is saying a lot considering Old Venice, Lost Pizza, and Dave's Dark Horse Tavern all have pretty dang good pizza. The only problem is that the dining room is small, they have outdoor seating but that doesn't always work. I would eat at Mugshots everyday if it wouldn't be a waste of money and make me obese.
I would actually be pretty happy if they came out and beat the hell out of everyone and won the NC. I mean everyone gives them crap all the time it would be good for some people to lose to Kentucky.
That is a fun fact, pretty dang neat.
Yeah they definitely didn't consider our student in Starville's population. We just about double when school is in. Starkville is right around 45k with everyone here.
Kevin you are wrong. Little Dooey's is not the best place in Starkville. That place has alright BBQ, but Petty's has the best BBQ. Oby's and The Veranda are top notch kudos for including them. City Bagel, Stagger Inn, Stromboli's, Dave's Dark Horse Tavern, MUGSHOTS (hands down the greatest burger joint I have ever eaten at), and others blow Little Dooey's out of the water. Little Dooey's gets all the national attention from ESPN but that is because it used to be just about the only thing in Starkville (I have heard that it was much better then) but it is honestly not anywhere close to being one of the better restaurants in Starkville. Next time you're in Starkvegas find me and I will pay for you to have good food so you won't have to think Little Dooey's deserves to be on the list.
I know a lot of people hate him, however, Harvey Updyke is pretty dang funny sometimes on twitter and really a joy to follow.
I hope Eason finds success at UGA. I would have a tough time to committing to CMR and company after seeing how well Aaron Murray played from him compared to what UGA accomplished during his tenure. I always pull hard for UGA and they always seem to let me down. Hopefully Eason will be the key to getting CMR a NC ring.
Well I always forget because they lose so many games every year and finish behind State in the SEC. Plus they have all those SEC championships.
You say Bama and Auburn are ranked high because of their name but TSUN being ranked 4th is right...you are an idiot.
alumnus 1. a graduate or former student of a specific school, college, or university. 2. a former associate, employee, member, or the like: He invited all the alumni of the library staff to the party. I think he used it correctly.
I hate to agree with a guy from TSUN but I started thinking this way when they starting hating on SEC teams playing FCS teams during the regular season. They need the money they get from playing Power 5 teams to support their athletic programs so why not allow them to play us in the spring in order to get the money.
I too hope they are wrong and Dak Attack dominates all year and wins the Heisman decisively. However, we have a lot to replace this year and we aren't nearly as deep as some of the teams that make runs at the NC every year. I do think that we aren't going to drop off as much as some think. We have some phenomenal talent in our returning starters, great backups, and some good talent coming in. We should be alright. I hope some play makers emerge to help Dak utilize the talents that he has.
Im pretty sure we have a disk golf NC, I mean give us our due credit. HAIL DAMN STATE!!!!
I think we had a pretty good season overall. I definitely want to see us continue to do well and have winning season every year and every couple years make a legitimate run at the SEC title. I think Mullen has created an expectation for that sort of thing and I think he is the man that can do it here in Starkville. I am a forever believer in that man. State fans are just as horrible as any other. We all are embarrassed by our fellow fans. Growing up as a Tide fan, Tide fans embarrassed me. Now that I am a full on State Alumni and fan I have been disgusted by our fan base. The two biggest times were when people booed Tyler Russel when he came back from an injury and replaced Dak, that was classless and shameful, and when they started calling for Mullen to get fired last year. I knew he had it in him all along. He has taken us to heights unsurpassed by any former coach. I try to keep thing in perspective. Here at State we don't have the best facilities (although they are damn fine), we don't get the best recruits (although Dan and crew make a NFL player out of them non-ranked boys), and we aren't the most prestigious and historical university (although we are proud of our past and traditions!!). Even with all those things where we are "lacking" compared to other schools be sure beat a lot of them this year and I think that is something we are going to see for years to come. Next year is going to be another tough one but I think we'll make it out alive. HAIL STATE!!!
He's probably just overwhelmed that Nick Saban looked past everything else and gave a phenomenal OC a change to be a part of a great season. He's done a wonderful job and Saban made a great hire. Glad the SEC West is still on top.
It should be mentioned that of the two replacement buses that we needed one was provided by Ole Miss. I hate them but that was really nice of them.
I actually love these. I see that most of you do not share the sentiment. My only problem is that the jerseys do not match the rest of the uniform. If they used a darker maroon and more of a cream on the jerseys, just like they did on the helmets, these would be the cleanest throwbacks I have ever seen. Most people's throwbacks sort of suck and don't seem that different. These are really something in my opinion.
Towles is good. While Kentucky by no means dominated State on offense that dude made plays. His mobility shocked me for sure, and by looking at his numbers it shocked our defense too. When, not if, Stoops puts some better players around him Kentucky is going to have a chance in the East. Everyone can get down on UK but here is the thing, it wasn't but just a few years ago that State was showing flashes of brilliance and we were counting moral victories, now we're number 1 in the nation. No, we are not a perennial power, not yet any way, but we are taking steps towards building a good player and over the last few years we have had a number of phenomenal seasons. Dan Mullen is changing the attitude about MSU and if he stays we can possibly become a contender year in and year out. Stoops can do the same thing at Kentucky. The time is right for him to make some noise. He has been recruiting lights out, at least for UK. The East, for the most part, is down. I'm not saying he wins the East in three years, but I am saying look out, he's going to beat some teams he isn't supposed to and he is going to have the BBN contending for titles.
Either way with the Florida situation I think Mullen will (and definitely should) get a fat raise at the end of the season (or heck, sooner). We are getting a bargain with him at 2.65 million, I think we could bump him up to 3.2 or 3.5 no problem. I know that is a big jump but no other MSU coach has ever left with a winning record, and he has been posting them almost every year. He is doing so much with very little, he has earned a dang raise regardless of how our season turns out. Oh, and if we want to keep Geoff Collins around he'll get a raise too for sure.
