    On the secondary of MSU...they have “padded” stats because three of their SEC games have been against three of the worst four passing offenses in the SEC (with MSU rounding out the four).
    And just to show how bad the passing offenses in the SEC are, A&M is ranked fourth.
    Not sold on their secondary - they aren’t as good as the who crew, and I don’t think it’s close.
    DL is another story but we’ll find out how deep they are.

    If the DL is as good as we think it'll be good on good with our OL.

    If their DBs are their weak link, I could see Tua lighting them up with some quick hitters and slants and then they'll have a bunch of YAC.

    Credit to LSU..we hit a bunch like this but they tackled well enough to limit YAC. Can MSU?

    I think after the scare at Starkville last season the team will not be looking past MSU in any way. We may not win by as a much as some think but I'd say something in the area of 17 points. LSU scored 19 against their defense so we should score at least 30+. They won't score 30 on us.

    Not sure but I think LSU scored only one TD on a turnover deep in MSU territory.

    This team damn near beat us last year and a lot of the same players return for them. I hope our guys are ready to go. Glad it's at Bryant Denny.

    Correct. LSU had several long drives from my memory but none resulted in more than a FGA.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    “Lets not waste time, MISS ST how bad will we beat them?”

    RAT 🐀 POISON! You would be running stadiums till you puked if you were a player. No need to disrespect another team. I’ve watched Mississippi State play Bama for 56 years, and they’ve been able to make the game uncomfortably close to a better Alabama team several times; and beat Alabama in 1980, 1986, 2006, and 2007.

    I'd love to see Mac get some playing time. What are his chances with Jalen still being on the mend?

    This is a tough one. For reasons already cited, I just don't think MSU can score unless we help them. They're even more one-dimensional than LSU. Stop Fitzgerald's run game, and you stop them. I think we can handle that.

    But as many have already mentioned, we're banged up on offense -- Ruggs, Smith, N. Harris, Jalen, Tua for sure, and the list is probably longer than that. And for maybe the first time, I don't think Saban is being forthcoming on a topic. Regardless of Saban's statements to the contrary, Tua's leg is clearly not 100%.

    I'd love to see Jalen play, starting in the second quarter. But he was in a boot before pre-game warmups, and would have played only in an emergency against LSU. So there's just no way he'll be good to go a week later. Which means Mac Jones is the backup for the second week in a row, and I just don't think he's ready for no-fooling playing time outside of mop-up duty. All of that to say that Tua probably plays longer than any of us would like, and every snap exposes that knee another time.

    Plus, it's hard to reach an emotional peak two games in a row. Point being, the point spread opened at 24, and has already moved to 26. I don't think we'll be meaningfully pushed as far as winning the game, but would be moderately surprised if we cover that.

    With Citadel coming the following week, I could see us looking ahead to Auburn. By the way, it will be interesting to see how we moderate the emotion for the barn. On the one hand, we want a little payback for last year, so I don't see focus and emotion as being an issue. On the other, UGA awaits only a week later, and we need a full tank for them, too.

    Two years of this [***censored***] injury bug is getting old.

    History has been that MSU would rather win the fight than the game...I hope we can win without any more injuries...
