I'm a Mississippi State Bulldog man myself, a fan of "underdawgs" you might say. We just hired a new head coach in the offseason (Sylvester Crooms, quarterback coach at the Green Bay Packers) after back-to-back 3 win seasons. Tonight they won the opener against Tulane (on ESPN 2), already 1/3 of last years win total. Hah! We're going to the Super Bowl!...oh yeah, wrong level. Well we're gonna be pretty good, darn it! The real test of the current state of affairs comes next week with the Auburn Tigers in town (on ESPN), but the game everyone is looking to is Nov. 6th at Alabama. They could have hired Crooms last year (and should have). He's an Alabama alumni who player and coached for Bear Bryant, but they passed him over for Mike Shula. I think he'll want that one very badly. We consider any season a success if we beat Bama & Ole Miss.
SO...who wants to speak up for thier team? Got anything this year? If you could only pick one game on your schedule to win, who would you want?
