MSU-Auburn Links

by

‘Tis a beautiful day outside, and it’s almost time for church. So here is my game story from Mississippi State’s 91-76 loss to Auburn. And here is the notebook. And just for kicks, here is the Montgomery Advertiser’s game story.

Enjoy the sunshine.

    I tip my hat to Auburn. They’ve won three games in a row and are playing good. But they’re still one game behind us and next time we play them at home. Hopefully our youth isn’t too fragile and we can recover from these two losses. There’s still a few ballgames and opportunities ahead of us including the SEC tournament. Heck, who would’ve thought Georgia would’ve won the SEC tournament last year and gone to the Big Dance?

    And what happened to GA last year when they got into the tourney? Bounced in the 1st round, right? We may be better served playing in the NIT where we have a chance to make a deep run.

    this team has far more talent than uga a year ago

    In response to some of the post yesterday.

    Guys, I understand State has lost 2 in a row. But, lets not overreact. During the season, all teams are going to lose some. Some teams will lose consecutive games. Before the LSU game and after the LSU game, no one was this critical. Why have a shock and over-the-top reaction to everything. The ball isn’t going to always bounce our way. And someone wants to fire Rick? Now we want to be very critical of the players? Lets pump our breaks and lets get real. The job at hand is take the team you have and make the best of it, whether you have the most or least talent. Rick has done a great job while at State. State hasn’t had a bad season. What supporters and fans of the program need to be better about is not having such crazy, over-the-top reactions when we lose a game. In any season, you go through win streaks…you may lose some too. Any REAL sports fan understands that.

    P.S. why is the Hump not packed on home game? Anyone!!!!

    I couldn’t help but notice that all the teams that have a better conference record than us (LSU, USC, TN, KY) all have at least two big guys starting for them. Some may think it’s getting a little late to make lineup changes, but maybe not. IMO, Bost-Stewart-Ravern-Varnado-Brian Johnson might be good. I like Turner, but Brian Johnson’s a Senior. Either way, I still see Turner getting significant playing time.

    not packed? There was over 9000 in the Hump on a Wednesday night game against LSU, about 88% full. That’s pretty darn good for a 16-7 team.

    There will be a good crowd for South Carolina.

    I’d have to leave Turner in, he has ‘independently’ taken games over this year.

    I’d start Osby over BJ, and let BJ spell him, let Bailey spell JV

    I wish coach woulda started fouling sooner, but when you play a team that hits 50 pct from 3, you will usually lose. Until we get more high percentage shots, we will win when we can hit the 3, lose when we don’t.
    My son and I went to the stadium (in Meridian) to run stairs, and saw Tyler Russell, Chris Smith, and a few other seniors from Meridian all working out. Tyler’s arm looked great! He made some throws on the run at about 15 yards, and every one hit the reciever in the hands. No breaking stride, no stretching. Perfect strikes! Deep balls were right there too! He also looked like he’s working out and putting on some muscle. Chris Smith’s looked good too, great hands! Can’t wait to see that chemistry on the field!

    -Sounds good Benza, can’t wait to see those two clicking at State as well 🙂
