MSU-LSU: Official Game Thread


So we get to see what Tyson Lee is made of. What a place to get your first college start. Of course, I imagine all three QBs will see action, so I’m interested to see how the rotation is handled – if it’s already mapped out, or if it’ll be a play-it-by-ear thing.

LSU won the coin toss and deferred, so MSU will receive. Remember, this game is on ESPN2. Game on.

    Great start

  2. ericintupelo Says:

    Well we’re winning. Most people didn’t think that would ever happen

  3. darkcooger Says:

    Surprise #1: We scored!

    Surprise #2: We’re winning!

  4. Brad Locke Says:

    There you go, 3-0. Too bad the Bulldogs couldn’t get more out of that, but hey, it’s a start. Lee was in the gun every snap; wonder if they’ll keep that up.

  5. Brad Locke Says:

    Gonna have a battle of the Lees at QB.

  6. cnd46 Says:

    LSU has a powerful back

  7. ericintupelo Says:

    Big third down. Need to hold them to a field goal

  8. Brad Locke Says:

    And we’re tied. Good start for the defense. Can they keep it up?

  9. darkcooger Says:

    If the offense can settle in and buy the defense some rest time, we should be able to keep the score manageable. Ideally, of course, the offense would put points on the board, but let’s start simple.

  10. ericintupelo Says:

    I wonder how our offense will start out on the next drive. Didn’t run on the first drive

  11. ericintupelo Says:

    Smart check down by Lee

  12. ericintupelo Says:

    Scott is a beast. It’s gonna be tough

  13. darkcooger Says:

    Man I hope the D can hang on for this…

  14. ericintupelo Says:

    Had them 2nd and 30 and they just score anyway.

  15. Brad Locke Says:

    Very impressive drive by LSU. They could hand it to Charles Scott all day. The Tigers covered 88 yards in 15 plays, took 7:17 off the clock. Too many holes in MSU’s pass coverage.

  16. ericintupelo Says:

    looked like a facemask

  17. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Need to really rotate dixon and elliot to keep fresh legs. They are too deep for us.

  18. Brad Locke Says:

    End of first quarter: LSU 10, MSU 3. My thoughts:

    • Only two full drives for MSU, one first down. Gotta show they can move the ball. I like Lee’s mobility, it’s kept some plays alive.
    • Charles Scott is indeed, as eric noted, a beast. And it helps to have that huge offensive line in front of him. They’ve blown open some huge holes.
    • Want to see if Anthony Dixon will get more involved here. One carry for 6 yards, one catch for 3 yards.

  19. ericintupelo Says:

    Screen passes would help. That play to Stallworth early on got a good chunk of yardage for us

  20. ericintupelo Says:

    Saw on pregame on ESPN news…they asked Bob Davie or whatever his name is “Is there any pressure on Croom” or is “He on the hotseat” and he responded no that the only pressure Croom is facing is from himself that he is hard on himself.

  21. mississippibulldawg Says:

    F U ref. What about the block in the back.

  22. Says:

    My thoughts: I hope I’m wrong, but I think if we play our best game, we’ll need 5 turnovers by LSwho and 2 defensive scores to win….

  23. Says:

    Ole Miss and Oregon St. did win this week though, so maybe an upset is abrew.

  24. ericintupelo Says:

    Would be great pix and there’s a chance if we keep the score low. Alot of football left to play

  25. Brad Locke Says:

    First quarter stats:
    • First downs: LSU 10, MSU 3
    • Total yards: LSU 125, MSU 42
    • Rushing yards: LSU 21, MSU 8
    • Passing yards: LSU 104, MSU 34
    • QB Tyson Lee: 4-6-0, 34 yards
    • QB Jarrett Lee: 7-9-0, 104 yards
    • RB Charles Scott: 8-29, 1 TD

  26. carwwest Says:

    lee still hasnt thrown a ball down field, only the one on the first drive….hope we can get a turnover though…..

  27. ericintupelo Says:

    We can’t defend the long pass. Auburn burned us everytime they went deep and so far LSU is doing the same. Don’t give up defense. Just don’t give up

  28. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Has Marcus Washington ever has a substantial play?

  29. ericintupelo Says:

    Bowser in my opinion is the weakest corner we have. He was recruited as a wideout and can’t cover. Washington ain’t doin too hot though

  30. mississippibulldawg Says:

    ASSHOLES AND ELBOWS (as my old High School Def. Cord. said)

  31. dc31 Says:

    Neither he nor Tay Bowser. Anthony Johnson would have had that one for a pick 6

  32. ericintupelo Says:

    If we could hold them maybe we could gain some momentum. You know they’re gonna run right at them behind that huge line

  33. Says:

    Bama 17 Georgia 0 right now

  34. ericintupelo Says:

    Untouched. Watch the defenses body language if we don’t move the ball this drive. I hope they don’t pack it in

  35. Says:

    If anybody cares…

  36. Brad Locke Says:

    Wow, I don’t think Scott was even touched on that. That O-line is something else. 17-3 LSU. 8 plays, 61 yards, 4:07.

  37. ericintupelo Says:

    I picked Bama to win on my Streak for the Cash

  38. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Wow. What leadership a lilfe long “pothead”. Maybe we should have Willie Nelson come talk to our team before we play Vandy……..Never know

  39. ericintupelo Says:

    I was thinking Cheech

  40. ericintupelo Says:

    Vandy against Auburn will be interesting next week. Auburn has no offense

  41. Says:

    5′ 10″ showed there…

  42. mississippibulldawg Says:

    He is 2 short to throw with pressure. I am not doggin’ him but it is the truth.

  43. Says:

    Does anybody else get the feeling that our team has cashed it in?

  44. theconquistador2 Says:

    If they haven’t yet they will after LSU scores on this posession.

  45. ericintupelo Says:

    Flutie was only 5’10”. He also had time to throw

  46. mississippibulldawg Says:


  47. Says:

    There’s one of those turnovers

  48. ericintupelo Says:

    Pegues is still playing

  49. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Pegues definetly needs to be on TV on Sundays

  50. theconquistador2 Says:

    INT. Too bad he couldn’t get it into field goal range because our offense can’t

  51. Says:

    Bama 24 Georgia 0, in the 2nd

  52. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Get his ass a booster seat.

  53. Says:

    I’m on the verge of changing channels. Our offense is hard to stomach.

  54. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Go back to Bama Croom

  55. ericintupelo Says:

    I think they’ll put Carroll in next drive and we make way too many dumb I mean dumb mistakes

  56. darkcooger Says:

    What the hell was that?

  57. Says:

    I’m also on the verge of completely losing all hope in Croom’s coaching ability.

  58. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Why not go for it if that is all u can do. If our players can’t even line up then that is nothing but the coaches fault.

  59. mississippibulldawg Says:

    He can’t even put his damn hat on straight. Slouchy lookin’ mf.

  60. ericintupelo Says:

    I tried to hold on for the longest but I lost faith in Croom and his staff. The man tried to turn us around and he “cleaned up” our program but it’s time. I wonder if we got another OC would it make a difference

  61. ericintupelo Says:

    Another opportunity

  62. darkcooger Says:

    Our defense is playing with way more heart than anyone could ever expect. Hats off to those guys.

  63. Says:

    There’s turnover #2…

  64. ericintupelo Says:

    It would do wonders for our confidence if we could go into halftime only down 7

  65. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Good for u Jessie Bowman. Starting for the 1st time and making the most of it. GO DAWGS.

  66. carwwest Says:

    hell yeah it would but we cant score!!

  67. ericintupelo Says:

    Just dumb as hell.

  68. carwwest Says:

    STUPID call!!!

  69. dc31 Says:

    That’s a Stupid play to kill momentum

  70. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Why do we have to get Fancy? Someone tell me.

  71. carwwest Says:

    thank you for not fumbling!!

  72. ericintupelo Says:

    Lee has some quickness when he scrambles.

  73. darkcooger Says:


  74. mississippibulldawg Says:

    He is more worried about the lady than the game. J/K , just shows his character.

  75. ericintupelo Says:

    6 yards away…..COME ON!!!!

  76. ericintupelo Says:


  77. Says:

    Wow! Offense!

  78. darkcooger Says:

    Surprise #3: We got a touchdown!

  79. mississippibulldawg Says:

    GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  80. carwwest Says:

    hell yeah!!!!!!!

  81. ericintupelo Says:

    Nice to see some blitz packages in this game

  82. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Atta boy Tim Bailey

  83. cnd46 Says:

    Tim is a beast tonight

  84. ericintupelo Says:

    See what pressure does? We didn’t blitz much in the other games. I think the coaches might have actually watched some film. Auburn blitzed LSU with some success.

  85. ericintupelo Says:

    Bama just scored again

  86. cnd46 Says:

    I hate them-Bama if you couldn’t tell

  87. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Wow. Running hard does pay off. Wouda thunk it?

  88. ericintupelo Says:

    LEts try to score. I don’t want to just run the clock out

  89. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Damn right.

  90. ericintupelo Says:

    I’m not a fan of Bama. Just giving an update

  91. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Does Croom know that u don’t carry over timeouts to the second half?

  92. darkcooger Says:


  93. ericintupelo Says:

    We are the only SEC team that doesn’t try to score at the end of the 2nd half. We always just run the clock out

  94. cnd46 Says:

    Sold play in the second quarter, good to build on

  95. carwwest Says:

    what the hell was that!?!?!?!?!?

  96. mississippibulldawg Says:


  97. Says:

    31-0 Bama Wow

  98. mississippibulldawg Says:

    All I can say about the Bama and Georgia game is WOW.

  99. Says:

    Looks like the blackout is just a black eye instead

  100. thespear Says:

    I say it every game, Croom does not have the guts to win a ball game. Every game he wants to go to the locker room at halftime with time on the clock. Les Miles or Urban Meyer would take the risk and hurl one to the end zone! 1:18 on the clock and we run it out rather than try to put the ball in field goal range. WE will never succeed with that approach to coaching

  101. darkcooger Says:

    I say we should start docking Croom $10,000 for every second he leaves on the clock at halftime.

  102. carwwest Says:

    thank you spear, you said what everybody else was thinking….that was pathetic…doe she not know that LSU will make adjustments and come out pissed?!?!?!

  103. ericintupelo Says:

    I agree with you spear. Where have you been the whole game? Still waiting on 2th doc, ima, farley,etc.

  104. carwwest Says:

    you have to play and coach to WIN the game, not to “not to get your azz beat” in the game….

  105. imabulldog Says:

    I’m here boys!

    We got some momentum- need our line to play that way the rest of the game.

    Need to put lee in shotgun more, elliot and AD look good.

    If we get some better corner play, we could have a good one folks!

    Lee made about 3 runs- Carroll couldn’t have made in his dreams

  106. ericintupelo Says:

    He doesn’t coach to win the game. He coaches to not lose which is bs. He just hopes and prays for mistakes instead of attacking

  107. mmsdawg Says:

    ok…I can never understand us not going for broke at the end f a half either. Heck, what can it hurt????

  108. imabulldog Says:

    atleast we are not UGA…

    Can’t think of the last time we could say that 🙂

  109. bishdawg Says:

    what can it hurt? well…our feelings! croom ALWAYS does that to us!

  110. ericintupelo Says:

    Good to hear from you ima. Lee looked good in the gun and AD looks good between the tackles. I wish we could hit Elliott on a screen and see what he can do. If we can stop them on the first drive maybe our offense will respond and shut up Death Valley

  111. ericintupelo Says:

    On a few of the tipped passes at the line, we have had the tight end open in the flat. Maybe we can hit that pass in the 2nd half.

  112. mississippibulldawg Says:

    GO TO HELL OLE MISS (Florida win or not)

  113. carwwest Says:

    i’ll admit tyson has looked good but only because our line has looked good….but we have to get AD and elliott more involved, period!!!…

  114. mississippibulldawg Says:

    I second the motion CARWEST.

  115. imabulldog Says:

    I really wish Marcus W., woulda picked off that pass- pick 6 on a platter.

    Hope we can hold them here

  116. ericintupelo Says:

    Come on D. We gotta stop them

  117. Says:

    Why oh why do you give a team like LSU the ball at midfield from the kick off? Where is the logic there?

  118. ericintupelo Says:

    YOu can’t arm tackle him. No way

  119. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Must have drank too much water at half.

  120. carwwest Says:

    not saying anything against our team right now but their line is HUGE!!!

  121. ericintupelo Says:

    Maybe they will playaction and we can get a pick. We are on our heels

  122. Says:

    We might have implemented the “swiss cheese defensive scheme” at half

  123. mississippibulldawg Says:

    And the crowd says “Whewwwwwwwwwwwwww…….”

  124. mississippibulldawg Says:

    We are snake bit

  125. ericintupelo Says:

    Almost caught a break

  126. ericintupelo Says:

    Good play by Pegues again though.

  127. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Damn we could have had that

  128. mississippibulldawg Says:

    What are we reviewing?

  129. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Lucky SOB’s.

  130. carwwest Says:

    we should be happy this is still a game BUT we are playing pretty good right now…

  131. mississippibulldawg Says:

    We have to have a TD this drive. Punting is going put us out. We have to tit for tat.

  132. ericintupelo Says:

    We have made some plays on both sides of the ball but LSU has helped us

  133. wishbonedawg Says:

    STUPID COACHING decision before half. Shows no confidence in team…therefore team will not grow in confidence. Lost momentum!

  134. carwwest Says:

    ditto wishbone….

  135. mississippibulldawg Says:

    How many passes now that were 15 yards ahead of the receiver?

  136. ericintupelo Says:

    Looks like Tebow today

  137. carwwest Says:

    ok i dont know what is going on with the down field throws but lee hasnt thrown one in the extreme reach of a WR…

  138. Brad Locke Says:

    Yay, my internet connection is back, for now.

  139. dawgx Says:

    Way to go Croom, ruin our momentum before half!

  140. carwwest Says:

    ok first off, no body expected us to last this long but obviously we STILL dont have an offensive mind on the team…

  141. Says:

    What’s going on is he’s getting his A%% whacked by those 300 pounders as soon as he releases. He’s throwing scared.

  142. ericintupelo Says:

    If they score right here it’s more than likely over unless we can score. We need another turnover, stop, miracle, something

  143. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Maybe I have it backwards and the coaches are just hindering the players instead of not “leading the players”.

  144. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Wish Football was like baseball and the coach could get thrown out and the D.C. took over (obviously not the O.C)

  145. Says:

    Bill Curry has to rank as my least liked announcer of all time. I’d rather listen to paint harden.

  146. carwwest Says:

    i hear ya mississippibulldawg….

  147. ericintupelo Says:

    That is how a forward pass is thrown. Woody needs to oserve. Maybe he should take notes every game we play. He hasn’t learned anything in 5 years so it wouldn’t help

  148. mississippibulldawg Says:

    I have been a Croom supporter the whole time but this is ridiculous. When you take the game out of the players hand (end of the first half). He is basically telling them that he has no faith in them. My opinion is that we should tell him that we have no faith in him. Seems like everyone here feels the same.

  149. carwwest Says:

    ok that three tackles ive seen terrell johnson miss…apparently not a chaney or OLB…

  150. carwwest Says:

    crxxm still doubt about that….

  151. theconquistador2 Says:

    I still can’t shake not trying to score at the end of the first half. Pisses me off. Damn, I’m ready for a new coach.

  152. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Everyone should call the ‘callin show’ on Tuesday and tell Croom. Anyone know the number off the top of their head right now?

  153. wishbonedawg Says:

    I’m in favor of a “no confidence” vote on the head coach.

  154. ericintupelo Says:

    As much as we would all like to see a change, I just don’t see them firing Croom. Maybe Byrne will flex his nuts though….I could be wrong

  155. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Just like Orgeron. Get good players but can’t do squat with them. But we aren’t like Ole Miss. We give em’ the money at the first sign of performance regardless of what they have done.

  156. wishbonedawg Says:

    I’m not suggesting that coaching change will take place this season. Lobbying for the off season.

  157. Says:

    Maybe Mike Rowe could do a Dirtiest Jobs episode about being a MSU football fan…

    This has to be one of the worst jobs in the world we have being State fans.

  158. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Hell we get at least 2 or 3 F.S. a game. Damn there are high school teams who don’t.

  159. theconquistador2 Says:


    I agree. As bad as we all want it, it’s highly unlikely that Croom will get fired. That being said, if we finish 1-11 (which is very possible) all bets are off.

  160. ericintupelo Says:

    This year just doesn’t seem like it’s gonna be a good time to be a State fan. Football is down, Basketball will be a little down but could surprise some people, but I am interested to see what Cohen does with the baseball program.

  161. darkcooger Says:

    Nice pass, excellent reception.

  162. ericintupelo Says:

    “Thought Carroll was the quarterback of the future” that’s such bull. He didn’t do anything special last year. Had one good game yardage wise against Arkansas and it wasn’t that good of a performance because he threw like 4 picks.

  163. mississippibulldawg Says:

    I do have to ask one question. Why do so many coaches (fb coaches) wear the black and white MSU hats on the side line? What happened to showing the colors , the true colors, maroon and white. Croom himself wears it a lot , black and white.

  164. ericintupelo Says:

    Run hard north south dixon or ducre

  165. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Now we call T.O. , that means we have 5 left.

  166. ericintupelo Says:

    Thats the first 4th down call that we didn’t lose yardage on

  167. nashdawg Says:

    I heard the announcers on XM201 say that it was Ducre’s first TD of his career. What a shame! I beirve that Ducre is a better tailback than Dixon.

    BTW, I was dead wrong in my prediction. State has actually scorerd and gained offensive 1st downs! OMG, miracles do happen!

  168. theconquistador2 Says:

    Why is Ducre getting the ball so much? Isn’t he our loley #3 back?

  169. ericintupelo Says:

    Thought Ducre punched it in against Auburn last year. I’m pretty sure it was him last year

  170. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Am I the only one….Tired of just being glad we scored on someone or “didn’t get beat too bad”. Ole Miss went out and got a real winner coach. We went out and got a freakin’ professinal assistance and now we see why.

  171. ericintupelo Says:

    I will say Ducre runs harder between the tackles. He’s more of a north south runner but Dixon does both.

  172. Brad Locke Says:

    Ducre has scored before. My thoughts:
    • LSU’s offense is making it look too easy. MSU is moving the ball, though, and frankly, Lee is doing better than I think Carroll would’ve done.
    • Unfortunately, it’s too late for a rally. Expect a heavy dose of Scott when LSU has the ball.

  173. ericintupelo Says:

    Lee makes good decisions when he has time. Reminds me of watching him at ICC

  174. cnd46 Says:

    Their winner coach also has the morals of an alley cat with his multiple affairs and lying to his own wife. While I can’t say anything against his coaching abilities, he is a loser at life

  175. Says:

    Great now Elliot is done.

  176. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Guess he won’t be doing anymore “Deion” dances.

  177. ericintupelo Says:

    Looks like he hyperextended that knee

  178. darkcooger Says:

    Damn… hate to lose Elliott. Poor kid.

  179. ericintupelo Says:

    I can’t stand Les Miles but I also have a hatred for LSU like no other

  180. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Elliot runs with more strength than Dixon and he gives up 40 pounds. Fuck that damn stutter step.

  181. ericintupelo Says:

    Thought that was his first touchdown pass! Man that was close

  182. theconquistador2 Says:

    The way Elliot’s foot was dragging the ground as they were taking him off the field, he may have broken his leg.

  183. mississippibulldawg Says:

    He is in damnit

  184. ericintupelo Says:

    For as big as Dixon is he runs soft sometimes. He likes to bounce it but he doesn’t have the speed

  185. ericintupelo Says:

    Let Tyson’s small ass sneak it in under the damn center

  186. nashdawg Says:

    it was LSU announcers on the XM channel. I thought it was an odd stat 4 Ducre. Tks fellas. I traveling from TN.

  187. ericintupelo Says:

    Test of will? I thought he was just dumb as hell

  188. mathistondawg Says:

    Hell yeah!! Finally, a sustained drive ending in a TD!!!

  189. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Croom says we are “No # 1”

  190. carwwest Says:

    wxxdy and crxxm almost effed us on that one!!! hard is it to QB sneak!?!?!?!?

  191. wishbonedawg Says:

    Agree, eric!!!

  192. Says:

    Well all jokes aside, our offense looked good right there. Is Felker making the calls ?

  193. ericintupelo Says:

    If we could get a stop and score quickly then we have ourselves a ballgame. I know there’s a slim chance but atleast there is a glimmer of hope. Watch them pound the ball and pick us apart with the short pass in the middle of the field though

  194. imabulldog Says:

    go dawgs!!!

  195. carwwest Says:

    playcalling is not costing us this game but is not helping….

  196. ericintupelo Says:

    Come on Pegues. Lets get a good return

  197. nashdawg Says:

    Hey, it could be Felker calling the gm. I emailed him this past wk and asked him if the coach who called last year’s UK gm could be found. I did not get a response from him, but I did get one from single-g Byrne!

  198. Says:

    I’d like to see a “wild bulldog” formation with Pegues at QB

  199. ericintupelo Says:

    Alright lets see what Woody calls on this drive. Does he call conservative plays or does he take some shots and give these boys a chance to win this ballgame. We can’t have another long time consuming drive. We just need to get in the endzone and try to get the ball back again.

  200. cnd46 Says:

    Greg is always good at responding to people’s emails

  201. Says:

    I’m completely shocked that we ran up the gut on the first play

  202. ericintupelo Says:

    Lee has room when he gives it to the back. I wonder how much he could get on a keeper

  203. carwwest Says:

    i dont think we have that in our bag of tricks…

  204. mississippibulldawg Says:

    For a 3rd string nobody Ducre isn’t half bad.

  205. mississippibulldawg Says:

    And I spoke too soon

    O my gosh!!! That was perfect placement

  207. Says:

    damn fine pass ducre dropped

  208. carwwest Says:

    CATCH THE FREAKING BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  209. mississippibulldawg Says:

    half ass effort on that

  210. oxfordrebel Says:

    That was 6 if he had caught that

  211. Says:

    Dang he coulda gone all the way against that LB too

  212. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Well Vanderbilt don’t feel bad about leaving a vacant spot at the bottom of the SEC. MSU is there to fill the hole.

  213. carwwest Says:

    ANYBODY could catch that!!!!!!!!!!!1

  214. ericintupelo Says:

    Lee threw it right in there and we blew it. I mean just blew it. I can’t say I’m shocked because that’s the life of being a State fan. There are times I wish I wasn’t such a huge State fan because of the constant heartbreak but I love these dogs no matter how bad things get.

  215. ericintupelo Says:

    Hell Vandy is competitive and they run a modern day offense too

  216. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Damn right, it is hard being a State fan.

  217. ericintupelo Says:

    Lets get a stop here.

  218. oxfordrebel Says:

    Nail in the coffin

  219. ericintupelo Says:

    Damn it. Well you can wrap this one in Purple and Gold. Thanks Ducre

  220. Says:

    I’m gonna have to say we were at least competitive. Well now that was ugly, but I still think we were competitive.

  221. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Croom’s ass and W.MC. should be out Monday. That is what big time coaches do. They are aggressive. We just hope for the other team to save us.

  222. dc31 Says:

    How many times does Tay Bowser have to get spanked before they get him out of there? HE IS NOT A DB

  223. ericintupelo Says:

    Shocker that Bowser was the corner on that play. Why does he even play? He should just stick to special teams on field goal blocks

  224. wishbonedawg Says:

    46 years as a state fan. Loyal to the bitter end. Maybe we can win next week. LOL

  225. carwwest Says:

    i hear ya eric….we suck but this is by far the best we have played and wxxdy and crxxm still f00ked us….didnt cost us the game but still VERY VERY TERRIBLE…..

  226. darkcooger Says:

    Can’t lay it all on Ducre’s feet. That was just one mistake of many. Critical, yes, but it wasn’t the only one. He did a lot of good throughout the night.

    I don’t think I will ever forgive Croom for just giving up before halftime. I’m sick of that crap!

  227. carwwest Says:

    yes and bowser is as good a DB as wxxdy is an OC…

  228. ericintupelo Says:

    I’m proud of the effort we put forth tonight. Well LSU won’t cover the spread

  229. mississippibulldawg Says:

    I am 24 years old and have been a State fan my entire life. I will never stop. NO MATTER WHAT. So consider that when I say that Croom should be let go RIGHT NOW in the season. Damn the money. We have donors who can drop that easy. He willl never let him go because they are friends and we all know it.

  230. nashdawg Says:

    I don’t know fellas. I was touting Ducre earlier but his dropped pass was a gm changer!

  231. ericintupelo Says:

    Brad’s prediction was the closest I think. He said 34 to 10 and he was 7 points off. I’m getting ahead of myself. We could score again

  232. mississippibulldawg Says:

    The entire SEC is leaving us behind. We all talk about ARK. but hell they have a new coach. Croom has been here 5 years.

  233. ericintupelo Says:

    That was a huge drop but Ducre is human. He’s on scholarship to make those plays but….well Lee has some nice touch

  234. Says:

    Nice pass

  235. mmsdawg Says:

    finally…we get a call

  236. wishbonedawg Says:

    time management sucks!!! Fire the coaching staff.

  237. mississippibulldawg Says:

    point is that players basically get “paid”. they get 4 years of free school at a very fine instiution. Look at what is cost to go to State for 4 year, tuition, dorm, food, etc. And figure the cost and they are basically gettin’ paid.

  238. mmsdawg Says:


  239. Says:

    Ducre got back at ’em with that stiff arm

  240. ericintupelo Says:

    Congrats to Lee on his first passing touchdown and that shoud’ve been Ducre’s second touchdown reception

  241. oxfordrebel Says:

    I was impressed by Lee tonight, Carroll should be riding pine for a while now. You guys played well too, no need to be ashamed of losing at Death Valley…

    It ain’t over though, TD MSU w/ 2:40 to go, down by 10 again

  242. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Onside kick?

  243. ericintupelo Says:

    Classy on your part oxfordrebel. Congrats to yall today

  244. carwwest Says:

    this was a better coached game BUT STILL got out-coached…crxxm STILL sucks!!!!

  245. mmsdawg Says:

    will we try the onside kick???

  246. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Even the damn announcers are dogin’ us. Croom is a pussy. Go back to Bama us SOB . U love em’ so much. All he does is talk about em’.

  247. mmsdawg Says:


  248. ericintupelo Says:

    Two timeouts?

  249. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Take ur damn timeouts and eat them Croom, u fat bastard.

  250. mississippibulldawg Says:

    Doesn’t change the game (1st half) but shows the country how big of a puss that u are.

  251. carwwest Says:

    he is an efffffingggg pu$$$$$$$$$y…FFFFFFFFFFf…crxxm

  252. mississippibulldawg Says:

    He is too busy being a F___ING moving star “Say it Loud” than a damn coach. Fucking Barack O’Bama wanna be.

  253. Says:

    Oh well as we always say “maybe next week”

  254. mississippibulldawg Says:

    I don’t care who I offend but that is why we should have never tried to make a statement and hired a black coach. He had never proved himself. We should have hired the best coach we could find in instead a fuckn’ PR campaign.

  255. nashdawg Says:

    These LSU announcers are just dumb-founded as why Lee hasn’t been year starter. What they don’t realize is that Coach Felker called the offensive plays tonight. He set up a gm plan where the short statued Lee stood back in the shot-gun all night long. After watching the offensive playing calling this season, tonight’s was a totally different gm plan…?

  256. thespear Says:

    hey nash, how do you know Rocky called the plays? I hope that is true, i would be all for his promotion

  257. thespear Says:

    ericintupelo, I have just been letting this game soak in… have not had too many chances too blog this semester. been doin a lot of studyin in starkville

  258. ericintupelo Says:

    This is the most I have blogged in a while. I feel you on the studying. Thats all I ever do but I check the site daily

  259. carwwest Says:

    like i said, play calling didnt lose the game but had no part in trying to win it…..

  260. nashdawg Says:

    Spear, it never was confirmed that he would call the gm tonight, but it just seems pretty apparent that someone else besides Woody called this gm.

    I have no firm answer though.

  261. carwwest Says:

    i believe you nash judging from what happened…

  262. ericintupelo Says:

    Woody was upstairs with a headset on. Lee played well and he can do damage when he has time to check his progressions and get his feet set. Boobie needs to quit trying to be a finese runner and use his large frame to his advantage. Boys played with alot of heart and we were in the game. Who knows what wouldve happened if Lee would’ve connected with Ducre on that pass? Story of being a State fan…..always having to wonder what if.

  263. ericintupelo Says:

    O and I still strongly believe we should clean house.

  264. carwwest Says:

    thank you eric, me toooooo!!!!!!!!!

  265. bamamanreturns Says:

    Great moral victory for Croom State

  266. carwwest Says:

    f….crxxm state and bamamanretuns…they all suck balls

  268. ericintupelo Says:

    We actually converted some third down opportunities and our time of possession were about the same. We didn’t turn the ball over which is key and we almost had 300 yards of total offense.

  269. darkcooger Says:

    The stats really aren’t that bad, except for the yards and the penalties. I’m fairly impressed with Lee. State definitely did a lot better tonight than I’d ever have guessed. I’d like to see the offense defy Croom the next time he decides to throw away a full minute before halftime, though.

  270. oxfordawg Says:

    What is the word on Elliot? I’m still upset about the end of the 1st half.

  271. Tom Says:

    At least it looks like we’ve found ourselves a QB. Lee looked like a winner tonight. In fact, the players looked like winners tonight. But, Croom, sadly did not. End the first half with a field goal, instead of a surrender and we’ve got a real shot at a W.

  272. db33 Says:

    Croom has no GUTS. He’s a play not to lose mentality coach and that fires NOBODY up.

    I don’t care if LSU picks it and takes it to the house, you have some damn guts.

    We’re a 1-3 team going into Baton Rouge, and he takes all 3 timeouts into the locker room.

    I just can’t stand it. Then, still pissed about that, we get 1st & goal on the 1 foot line. Have we learned our lesson about handing the ball backwards? HELL NO, Dixon takes the handoff at the FIVE and has to break a tackle just to get back to the line of scrimmage. OK, surely on 2nd down, he’ll QB sneak it. Right? RIght? WRONG, FB dive, no gain. OK, it’s 3rd down, now or never, QB sneak! Nope, Dixon takes yet another deep handoff, slips out of a tackle in the backfield and worms his way in. SUCH STUPIDITY!!! If you are in that spot on the damn 1 foot line, 1st & goal, FOUR STRAIGHT QB SNEAKS. You lose no ground and will get it in one of those times. What if this had been 3rd & goal? We would’ve been stuffed.

    Only bright spot I saw – Tyson Lee is 10 times better than Carroll. Unfortunately for him our tackles suck, especially Saulsberry. And, he’s saddled with Woody.

    Thank goodness for the open date. I don’t think I could take any more mismanagement and poor decision making. I need a break before all the stupid decisions sure to come against Vandy.

  273. oxfordawg Says:

    We will never succeed in the SEC without taking chances. I’m saying we should have won this game, but you have to gamble when you are the underdog. The offsides by Dixon on the onside kick just shows the discipline this team has. Who’s fault is that?

  274. oxfordawg Says:

  275. ericintupelo Says:

    That was another situation that leaves you wondering what if? Well Croom is not the coach we need to take our team to the next level and Greg Byrne should go ahead and get a list ready of possible replacements. Croom has had long enough and I respect the man but he just doesn’t get the job done.

  276. ericintupelo Says:

    I have had enough for one night. Talk to you guys again soon

  277. quark20 Says:

    I have to say, although we lost this game, I was rather happy with our effort against LSU. Lee looked pretty good at QB, and I’m sure he’ll only get more comfortable as the season goes on. Here’s to finishing the regular season 8-4! 🙂

  278. darkcooger Says:

    Agreed, oxfordawg. There’s too much sloppy play, and that’s all on the coaches. I’m grateful for what Croom has done in getting things cleaned up off the field. That’s great and I hope any future coaches keep things clean, but we want more. They don’t give out awards for fewest players in prison.

  279. imabulldog Says:

    my prediction was losing 28-24, in a game that we gain some momentum and confidence for the rest of the year.

    Thought 2 plays coulda changed the game:
    1. Ducre’s drop
    2. Washington’s missed INT
    – these plays woulda won it, and I’m sorry- gotta pat myself on the back for calling Lee our qb this whole week. The kid made plays- and I didn’t see one stupid throw.

    Think this game will do wonders for our season, and BTW, LSU might be Nat’l Champs again

  280. thespear Says:

    As I said earlier, this halftime stupidity happens every game(i think it cost us the tenn game last year) but probably isnt usually as obvious as it was tonight(plenty of time, a hyped offense, and timeouts in hand)… This whole blog is roaring about Croom’s “cut our losses” mentality.

    BL, please be faithful to this blog and pose the question to Croom: Why does he never coach to win?

  281. oxfordawg Says:

    I too was proud of the effort of the players. Not proud of the coaching, not only the decisions during the game, but the preparation of the players. Two 15 yard penalties on punts and an offside on onside kick. Even high school players have this drilled into their heads.

  282. imabulldog Says:

    and I said it last week, some of you need to chill out, if you would, show some balls and post how much $ you usually donate to State, and list how much $ you are now witholding due to wanting coaching changes- I’d love to see all of yall, put you $ where your mouth is.

    Yall are doing nothing but hurting the program when you withold support.

    Go Dawgs!!!

  283. oxfordawg Says:

    How much money would it take to buy crxxm a set of balls?

  284. dawgbone Says:

    Any word on Elliot’s leg?

  285. imabulldog Says:

    All Im saying is if you pull back on the $, then the school wont have enough to buy him out either.

    -I agree guys, we can’t sit on the ball before the half

  286. oxfordawg Says:

    I figured he had a fracture the way he was dragging it. Probably did more damage letting it drag like that. Hope he is ok.

  287. Brad Locke Says:

    Croom said it doesn’t initially look good for Elliott, but he didn’t want to comment further. I’ve got a bad feeling about it.

  288. olemiss1581 Says:

    good job state! keep standing behind croom… we love him in Oxford!!!!

  289. skydawg706 Says:

    See Ole Miss got a lucky streak….
