Just for the record, when Sessions was a senator running for reelection and ahead in the polls he would never agree to debate his opponent either.
This will simply make legal whats been going on for years, boosters paying the best players. Now it will simply be legal as the booster will have the player do a commercial or promotional appearance, but the effect will be the same. I guarantee the Ogeron and Saban and the others will have a recruiting pitch where they point out how many businesses they already have lined up wanting players to do promotional work. This will shift the competitive balance even farther in favor of the traditional football powers as boosters paying players is now fair game. Wouldn't surprise me if in a few years there is a new position within each coaching staff of an administrative assistant that coordinates business requests for promotional appearances. It's a sad day for the NCAA, which was already pretty pathetic.
Apologizing to “the Ole Miss family” sort of misses the point. Hey Matt, you still owe some apologies.
Metcalf did the same thing and he was a Freeze recruit. Oh how quickly we forget.
“I apologize to my teammates, coaches, and Rebel Nation” In other words, he is sorry for making the game-tying extra point more difficult which ultimately cost them the game. If he were truly sorry for his actions, there would be a few more categories of people mentioned. Like the MSU players coaches, and fans. He’s just sorry that he cost them a chance for OT.
JoMo better be worried about if Shoop can hold Bama to less than 80. After losing to LSU, they are going to be ill and we are the ones upon which they get to relieve their frustrations. I think Bama will score at will until Saban starts to pull his starters to prevent possible injuries.
Wow, for our offense to look this good the Arky defense must really be atrocious. I enjoyed watching it. I really hope we have turned a corner and it wasn't simply because the Hogs are bad.
"Mizzou football: Why do the Tigers continue to look completely unprepared away from home?" Please write the same type of article about Joe Moorhead and MSU. Joe, as well, has certainly turned out to be no road warrior. I suspect we could be Arkansas's first SEC win in a while in a few weeks.
Haven't seen MSU look this bad in a long time. Brings back Emory memories.
Shoop has got to go and probably Moorhead as well. You can make all of the excuses you want, but Shoop's defense makes every decent offense we face look like playoff contenders. And Moorhead needs to call plays at the start of the game like he does when we go 4 scores down. We have to open up the offense to have a chance to beat a decent team.
Why did that "best of my ability" not have a screen pass or wheel route for Kylin Hill on Saturday? We heard so much before the season started that Moorhead wanted to use Hill like he did Barkley at PSU which included a fair amount of receiving. If the the o-line can't open holes against a 7-man front, why not get Hill the ball in the flat? He is the best offensive player we have and Moorhead only tried one way to get him the ball and it didn't work. Try something different for once.
Good win for you guys. Don't get too excited about the defense, though. Our offensive minded coach can't plan or call a game. Made Auburn look like world champions and now this. I don't see another win for us except Abilene Christian and that really hurts me to say so.
Sure am glad we hired an offensive mind for a head coach. Otherwise, we might have only managed to score 3 or maybe 7 against the worst defense in the SEC. Oh wait, second worse since we obviously occupy the last spot for defenses. Shoop should be fired today. Not even let back on the bus to the airport. And very possibly Moorhead should be left on the side of the road as well. Never have I seen a team so inadequately prepared as I have with MSU the last two games. Absolutely pitiful.
The only thing left on the schedule that should be a lock is ACU. Moorhead has shown to get the team to perform so well (cough cough) in road games that you have to consider UT and TA&M as at best 50/50's while we should, heavy on the should, win at Arky. If the defense doesn't figure something out, we likely won't win any of these. Ole Miss in Starkville, it's always a 50/50 game. 8 wins could happen, but I'm not betting on it at this time. And there is no way we hold LSU to 27 points unless Joe Burrouw goes out early. Just don't see it happening.
I don't want apologies. I want to see improvement on the field week to week. The defense has been terrible so far and it doesn't appear to be getting better. Auburn has a great defense, but their offense is average and we made them look like national championship contenders. Fix the defense, don't talk about it. At least teach the guys to wrap up when they get to a ball carrier.
I didn't expect to be able to run effectively against Auburn's d-line so I expected the offense to struggle. I didn't expect the defense to use the hot butter technique but then again we have seen it several times this year. I'm beginning to believe Shoop's tenure at Utenn is the rule and last year was the exception.
Some of the guys played very well. Others, not so much. And I attribute a lot of the not so much to coaching. Take the poor tackling. That's been the case from the first game this year and it hasn't improved. That's on the coaches if they don't take the players that are not wrapping up and teach them proper technique. You almost never see the first MSU defender to a ball carrier make the tackle and it's because they don't wrap up. When that's going on this far into the season, it's on the coaches. The team was completely unprepared to start the game. Unfortunately, that seems to be a calling car for Coach JoMo and road games. He needs to figure out how to adjust his road pre-game plan so the players don't sleep walk through the first quarter. Lack of discipline is obvious with all of the BS penalties, including an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the head coach that cost us a first down to keep a drive alive when we desperately needed it. Yes, the players made some mistakes that are not on the coaches but the coaching staff has generally been underwhelming as well. When I can sit on my couch and tell you from the formation what play is coming the offensive genius JoMo is not doing a very good job and Shoop's defense can't stop the run or cover anyone. Bama will hang 80+ points on us unless they just get tired of running up and down the field. Yesterday was a complete bust from the top to the bottom for MSU football.
And yes, most everyone said exactly the same thing you are saying now before the game last year. How'd that work out for ya last year? Not saying this year will be a repeat, just pointing out that no one really knows at this point in time. ESPECIALLY SOMEONE WHO FEELS THE NEED TO TYPE IN ALL CAPS!
Nope, his job is to run the um athletic department not whine about the referees. I've already stated elsewhere that the play in question as a stand-alone should have been reviewed, but it really never should have happened if the refs had properly called the offensive pass interference 2 or 3 plays prior. So for him to play the "we got screwed by the refs" card is ridiculous and beneath his position. But then again, he is an interim AD so maybe it's not beneath his position. Certainly not his fault that he inherited a mess.
Suspended for 3 games then tossed after a half for 2 unsportsmanlike penalties. How selfish can a guy be to leave his team hanging like that instead of being on the field. JoMo should run him until his tongue hangs down to his toes.
Is he also going to complain about the offensive pass interference call against Ole Miss the refs blew to set them up in the red zone?
The officials can review any play that want, time outs or not. Speaking of no knowledge, thanks for reminding all of us once again how little you can claim.
The pass play should have been reviewed, but in reality it never should have happened if the obvious offensive pass interference had been called 2 or 3 plays before. The refs may have screwed up, but They screwed it up for both teams.
And shame on Lee Autry and Willie Gay for being selfish and abandoning the team when they are apparently needed on the field.
Hats off the KSU. Their guys came in and played their butts off and deserved to win. Our guys, well not so much. The defense was simply bad and the offense was pretty much ineffective the entire 4th quarter. If the D doesn't improve, Bama will hang 80 points on us.
Which is exactly why I said it would be a struggle. And KT wouldn't have changed the outcome unless he also played defense.
Looks like a good future ahead for Shrader but he has to learn to use his head. With time running out, he has to be a QB and not a RB. Two bone-headed plays in the last 3 minutes. Not faulting him for the loss tonight, just the poor decisions late in the game. Plenty of others to point to when spreading the blame around, from the coaches to the entire defense and the o-line and Stephen Guidry. What a frustrating game to watch. Looks like it will be a struggle to be bowl eligible this year.
This team played like they have in the 2 previous games, but today they played a team with equivalent talent. Here is a list of the problems I see. 1. The defense doesn't tackle well. Very rarely does the first guy there make the tackle and often neither does the second and third. 2. Defense has problems staying in lanes against the run. 3. Defense busts too many coverages allowing receivers to run free way too often. 4. Kick coverage has been (and was tonight) absolutely abysmal. 5. Offensive line does not open holes for the run game. 6. Stephen Guidry can't catch a cold. 7. No coaching adjustments made or at least no effective adjustments. Probably many more that I haven't thought of yet. Feel free to add to the list.
I'm pretty sure he was referring to JDunn's comment telling him to shove it, not his opinion of the refs or the game. Now you can stop wondering.
The offense has played well so far, but against defenses that will in all likelihood prove to be not very good come season's end. Our offense looked very good for the first three games last year and look how it turned out. I'll feel better about the offense when they play well against a Kentucky or an Auburn. The defense has done well from a scoring perspective, but again against teams that are probably not very strong. There have been too many missed tackles and too many yards given up that will come back and haunt us against the better teams on the schedule. We need better play from the D-line and linebackers (and Willie Gay back on the field). We don't have a handle on this team yet and probably won't for another two to three weeks.
