    For three quarters, everything was pointing to a Mississippi State upset victory over Alabama. Alabama’s injuries at inside linebacker had finally caught up with the Crimson Tide, the defense couldn’t get off the field on third down and the Alabama offense was boom/bust, scoring quickly at times […]

    Excellent write-up. Once again, the Auburn game will (likely) be the deciding factor for our championship hopes. We found a way to win this one, and we can do the same in the coming weeks!

    I hope we can get some of our injuries cured by Auburn. I agree that it is too late to fix the Offence at this late date, we are what we are and that is a load of three and outs against a strong DL (which tires a defense that has a depleted experienced rotation) and a lot of BIG plays. Auburn is at home and on fire. I just hope they are not as good as they have looked the last couple of games. I'm gonna have an EMT watch the game with me.

    Great write up, Jess. I don't like it when the Auburn game decides the West. Too stressful I was surprised at how inconsistent our defense looked but am glad they did their job in the 4th quarter. Iron bowl will be a close game at Auburn with the refs.

    We are still better than Auburn, but no one benefits by being at home as much as they do. But Georgia was a fraud. Our game will go down much differently.

    As it's been stated various ways, they have Stidham and we have Jalen. I'll take Jalen every time. As far as the defense goes, Saban has no choice but to play the players he has and to devise a game plan that gives them the best chance to succeed. Let's get it on!

    Thanks, Jess. Great write-up. That was too stressful. The Auburn game becomes really scary. I don't now how we fix the ILB issues but I surely hope Coach Saban pulls something out of his hat.

    yep, i think this sets up well for us. the next two weeks will be filled with non-stop speculation about how the barn will win.

    Great job Jess. The high light of my day is waiting for your assessment of the game...

    in talking about Coach Paul Bryant

    Alabama is 2- and 3-deep all over the place with full grown, meaner-than-he!! men. It's almost not fair making college kids play against them. Any Saban-coached team is going to be deep as he!! with recruits that have elite size, strength and experience at their position and they are going to play with incredible physicality.

    Mississippi State controlled the game, until Jalen Hurts 'Gutted Them'. MSU ran at will and we didn't stop them. Our rushing attack was on life support until the 4th quarter.
    The MSU coaches, players, and fans thought they had the game in the bag...
    THEN...
    Jalen took control of the game. Jalen ran well, Jalen passed well, and the rest of our team responded. Suddenly our OL blocked, our DL stopped them.
    And Alabama took what was a likely loss and turned it into a win.
    The Mississippi State Fans were in shock... So was Jesse Palmer and the other idiots in the booth.
    As for Alabama... the trip home was better than it could have been.
    ROLL TIDE ROLL.
