MSU Players Speak


The team is practicing outside in the rain this evening. Gonna be tough come Saturday night weather-wise.

Some excerpts from the players who spoke at today’s MSU football press conference:

• DE Tim Bailey, on Alabama OL Andre Smith: “Big Andre, he’s a good one, I must admit. But he’s not supernatural. As long as I play my technique right and lean with leverage, he’s not going to be a big factor in the game, that’s what I feel like.”

• Bailey on Alabama being a first-half team: “We know they jump out on other people early, so we’ve got to come out with a sense of urgency. We have to get them in some bad situations, get them out of their comfort zone and make them adapt and adjust to us.”

• C/G J.C. Brignone, on Alabama NG Terrence Cody (6-5, 365): “He’s one of those guys that’ll stop a hole, and he can hold up three gaps. When you take two guys out of an offensive line with just one D-lineman, that’s a big deal, because you’re keeping one guy off of a linebacker.”

• DT Jessie Bowman, on reaching bowl eligibility: “It’s my senior year; it’s four guys’ on the D-line senior year, and we would love to get back to a bowl game. We don’t want to go back home early.”

• LB Dominic Douglas, on whether Alabama has any weaknesses: “All around, honestly, no. They’re a complete team. They play well together offense, defense and special teams. But we’re going to take that and try to turn that around and use it to our advantage.”

    Dominic must have been shuffling through the “player speak” cue cards Croom handed him going into the press conference and picked the wrong one.
