Nice deflection I guess. But I wasn't hating on UT. I live in TN so I kind of cheer for them in the East. If you read the post I was replying to the first point he is trying to make is media is overhyping. Again in this case, the AD isn't the media nor does Double O ever mention the AD. There aren't many MSU fans who will defend our performance this past year. And in fact, the UT loss was the straw that broke the camels back for our fanbase and the patience with Moorhead. State has played the role of upsetting a team and heating up the opposing coaches seat. It's usually a sign your program as a whole isn't "Back". Congrats though. A thorough embarrassing ass-whooping it was in Knoxville. Not as bad as the one you received in Starkville a few years ago. I expect it is a similar feeling as losing to Georgia State and BYU though.
Your own AD was the "hype man" here. No media. Your AD. The article (from the media) even says this is a premature "We Back"
Yeah, we still have players playing for us this coming year that are from FL and Mullen signed. Just simply wrong. In fact, his last two recruiting classes had multiple Florida kids. I thought the obsession of the Egg Bowl rivalry between the MS teams was bad at times. Especially here recently. But since Mullen has gotten back to Gata, this back and forth between UGA fans and Gata fans is on another level of obsession with each other. But both adamant they aren't obsessed with each other. 'It's the other who is obsessed.'
No worries, they will probably donate to the children's hospital as their charity and get it funneled back to them.
I wasn't talking about OM but whatever. Not sure many actually expect that. And if you think OM won't be more competitive with Kiffin than they have been in recent years it's wishful thinking.
Exactly. I don't get where all these other school's fans are concluding that MSU fans are claiming we are gonna win the SEC next year. Or something "significant". Yes, the media has lapped this hire up and are certainly hyping it. Just like this article has done. Most all MSU fans understand the challenges we will face running the Air Raid. MSU has never been known as a pass-heavy team. At least since I've been alive. It's going to be a huge change but we have the athletes already in house. It's not a complete rebuild by any means. That doesn't mean there want be growing pains. Most rational fans are extremely excited about the shakeup, but at the same time cautiously optimistic.
No one is acting like he is going to come I to the West and burn it down. There is nothing wrong with being excited about a hire. Especially one as fun as Leach. Getting Leach was a big step up for MSU but we aren’t claiming he is going to take us to the promised land or anything. It is going to be interesting to see how this plays out. But I’m willing to roll the dice and see. It should be fun. We aren’t the ones who have unrealistic expectations. I think vols fans have finally found their place in the pecking order and it’s not where they thought it was anymore.
No reason to. People just getting upset to get upset and create faux outrage. Then a pile on. Without even reading his explanation it's clear it's to wake that player and team up.
The majority of his articles are crap. Not just this one.
Just because they want it bad enough doesn't mean it's going to happen. To give our administration that much credit, especially after the decisions or lack thereof the past month, I will believe it when I see it. I don't expect Napier anymore even though he was my top candidate.
"I don’t know if Moorehead was warned or what was said that led up to this" Then clearly you are out of touch with the entire situation. In business, you also don't continue to let underperformers leach off your company. You fire them. See how that works both ways?
There is absolutely no MSU fan claiming to have the next Saban in waiting. We just knew what we had wasn't cutting it. No claiming we will see UGA in the next SEC championship. All we have said is we needed a new coach.
I'm glad he is gone too but this is just dumb to think. Maybe not the sole reason but very well may be a very large reason why we may have been in the door with some players.
You're being sarcastic right? That's not even on the table and you're naive if you actually think it is.
So you suggest we settle for another year of garbage on the field because we are a month into the offseason? That would help us get ahead of the curve. Sorry we didn't make as dumb of a decision and hire Morris to have to fire Moorhead mid-season. The verdict is still out on the hogs next year. I'll take my chances. Arky has enough sh*t on their plate to worry about any other schools. I don't disagree he should've been fired after the Egg Bowl ideally if we were going to do it. Better late than never though.
He also claimed that the bowl game was no vacation and was a "business trip". Clearly he wasn't prepared to handle business.
Yes. I think they have the option to appeal to the NCAA and then MSU would also have to release them. If they want to go I wouldn't see us bringing that sh*t storm to MSU by not releasing. I would hope our administration could make the right decision there. They were a month late on this one. I just hope there is no major fallout. Our top recruit (Marks) very well could. He seemed to be a Moorhead guy and had a ton of offers. He would get immediate playing time at MSU though. We will see but there is no coach worth saving just for a recruiting class. That is way too short-sighted.
For sure. It definitely makes you wonder. We lacked any creativity and constantly looked lost every weekend. Seemed to have no answer and played to what the defense gave us. If you could play man we stood no chance if you could disguise just a little bit. The ball is in his court to prove otherwise now. He very well could've fooled us and all of the talking heads who donned him an offensive guru when we hired him.
No doubt he will land somewhere in a coordinator position. Just not what we needed here.
Good one. You know it's a last-ditch effort at a come back when the internet grammar police show up. Especially on a website you can't make edits on.
Wrong. Not only is your comment wrong, but it makes zero sense. Where did I defend anyone? Dude is a constant troll on MSU articles FYI.
Out of all the problems in the game, this is what stood out to you?
Wow, it wasn't a knock on Drew Lock. He's a great player and I'm glad he is proving the preseason critics in the NFL wrong. Take a step back from the ledge Tiger fans. It was a knock on how dumb this article title was.
All your comment proved is you don't know what you are talking about. We played like that in every game this year. Our coaching staff has proven multiple times they don't know how to improve or prepare for a game with extra time to study a team. See UT this year.
It was 100% winnable. Just like K-State and UT this year. The start of the problem is that even other SEC teams fans can see that Moorhead is a bust and needs to go immediately and our own administration can't even see it.
No MSU fans are defending this garbage. I haven't spoken with a single MSU fan that thinks we are living up to expectations. For the past two years now. Changes have got to be made or we will continue to disappoint.
