When it's all said and done, The entire team (Players and coaches) will have to look back on this season and say "If Only". Take the bad calls by the refs out. Turnovers, failures to score TDs inside the red zone, slow starts, questionable play calling, missed FGs, State should have been at least 10-2. Maybe going to a bowl will allow more practice time for continual improvement for next season.
It's going to begin with winning the battle in the trenches, control both sides of the line of scrimmage, keep pressure of Rogers and keep the OM defense guessing. The D line and LBs have got to contain Matt C. and the RBs. Don't trade FGs for TDs and keep the penalties to a minimum.
There are so many factors in this game. Win the turnover battle, win on both sides on the line of scrimmage, reduce the holding/false starts, win the line of scrimmage battle on both sides of the line. The LBs and DL need to put pressure on Matt C. State cannot start slow and trade FGs for touchdowns against OM.
How about the "Gus Bus" down at UCF or maybe the "Freezer". You know both of them want back in the SEC.
I was at the game, but didn't realize he was injured. I wish him a speedy recovery.
I was at the game and lost my voice yelling so much in the 2nd half. I think I was the only Bulldogs fan in my section, but the Auburn fans were great. Great win by the Bulldogs.
Picture this: Right before kickoff, Hugh Freeze grabs a mic, struts out to midfield, and doing his best impersonation of "The Rock" says, "Finally, the Freezer has come back (long pause) to Oxford"
Exactly. Really wondering what the defensive game plan will be this weekend and if the O line can cut down on the penalties and protect Rodgers, they can win
"The Nature Boy" Ric Flair use to say " I'm the dirtiest player in the game" and that's Lane Kiffen
I'm with you. I think it starts with how the O Line plays. Reduce the penalties, protect Rodgers and MSU has a good chance on winning. MSU also has to not only move the ball between the 20's, but score TDs in the red zone, FGs won't cut it against UK.
Looks like the "Lane Train" has derailed.
Are Lane Kiffen and Mike Leach competing to see which team can convert the most 4th downs?
Was able to get tickets to the game, first time attending a UGA game. Great fans on both sides, but UGA was just too much. If the card play right, it will be UGA - Bama in the SEC championship game and both will be in the playoffs.
I'm not an alum, but I've been a Bulldog fan since I was 5 yrs old growing up in the Meridian, MS. area.This is a great moment for the Bulldog nation. Congrats to the Diamond Dawgs and the entire Bulldog nation. HAILSTATE.
Brule will take over as the leader of the MSU defense, but Emmanuel Forbes will lead the secondary and will help from the transfer from Texas
Was Mike Leach trying to give the game to Missouri when he put KJ Costello in? I mean, you put in a QB that has thrown a ton of interceptions and you continue to pass the ball with less than 3 mins left in the game and what happens? An interception.
OM has been putting up points each week and the D will get it together. Totally opposite for MSU and I don't know if that will change. 2 points in the game and none from the "Air Raid" Offense. More interceptions than points.
These next two weeks are going to really tell how good Mike Leach really is.
Watch out, Ole Miss. You're going to have to drop the name Rebels next.
Congrats to the tigers and a big congrats to Coach Eddie O. He had plenty of doubters, but he learned from his past mistakes and won a championship.
I'm really pulling for Coach Eddie O. I remember how so many so called experts made fun of him and thought he was the wrong man for the job. So much for the so called experts. Trusting the people under you is a mark of a good leader and I hope MSU will hire a coach that will bring in good assistants and he will trust them to do their jobs.
I wonder if Hugh "The Freezer" Freeze has contacted John Cohen about the position. I thought that Moorehead should have been given one more year to right the ship. He made some mistakes, he came up snake eyes with the the Tommy Stevens decision.
ESPN reporter mentions former SEC head coach as ‘name to keep in mind’ for Mississippi State opening
Go get Mark Hudspeth, bring in Jamar Chaney, Chad Bumphis and DJ Looney.
The Bulldogs Offense reminds me of the Dr. Pepper "Fansville" commercials, They make no sense.I mean, it's 3rd and 4 and you pitch the ball to Kylin Hill for a huge loss when he had no lateral movement. Joe Moorehead seat just got hotter.
Great job by Georgia to get players from Louisiana, especially the young man with the greatest name in sports, Major Burns. I had heard that he decommitted from LSU, but I had no idea that Georgia was in the picture.
I wonder if Kiffen would come in with trash talking aimed at Bama, LSU and MSU to get the fanbase fired up.
Where is that comedian who would post videos of fan reactions? He would be great now.
Wow. This time last week it looked like Joe Moorehead would get fired after the Egg Bowl and Matt Luke would return in 2020. Ole Miss should have won at least 8 or 9 games this season. Switching between Plumlee and Coral didn't help. Does this mean that Rich Rod is the leading candidate. Totally shocked about hearing this.
$7.5Mil per yer and A&M goes 7-5 for the season. Ironic.
I'm happy for Coach Eddie O. because there were so many so called experts that treat him like dirt and made him look like a total idiot because of where he's from, how he talks, and his past job performance. He learned from his mistakes and his LSU on the road to a championship when the so called experts said he would last long or he wasn't the right man for the job. I hope they like the crow. Way to go, Coach Eddie O.
