    I think the defense has a lot of momentum going into this game, so I don't see a letdown there. Stop Fitzgerald and you shut down their offense.

    Tua and company won't have a letdown. They just have too much fun out there.

    Bama wins big.

    I hope we can pick off a couple of passes and maybe turn them into NOTs this week. I really like what Alabama's secondary did last week. They almost picked off a couple against LSU.

    yes! it is clear that it is necessary to stop the QB run option but that is a bit of a task on this 245 pound QB. He hasn't shown that he is accurate enough to win throwing the ball. Stop the run shut down their offense. On the offensive side my main question has been... Can we handle the aggressive rush off the edges and create some explosive running plays and throws downfield? Their defensive numbers are impressive but hopefully they just haven't seen anyone like Tua or Jeudy/Ruggs!

    They are very aggressive off the edges. I wouldn't be surprised to see some RB screens, WR slants and WR/TE screens early on to slow them down. They are prime to get burnt on a few of those. Sweat (#9) doesn't even slow down to bother to see if it's a run or pass. This cat is full throttle to the quarterback every play. We can take advantage of his over zealousness.

    No doubt State's defense is good...but this being a home game might make all the difference.

    On our first drive against LSU, their "11th man" (has Danielson kept saying thinking he was being cute) really did make a huge difference. I think we had three plays in a row where we were discombobulated and confused and the crowd noise was the key factor. We had not really had to deal with that kind of environment. To their credit LSU kept it respectable but if we score a TD on that first drive, it could have just deflated them and we could have run them off the field in the first quarter. But, to their defense and crowd's credit, that really helped LSU.

    MSU won't have that same benefit Saturday at BDS!

    We are physically a little beat up, but this was not your typical "emotional" game over LSU. I thought we were very even-keel for most of that game and I would bet we were business as usual during the week prior.

    I don't think it will be as close as Fiutak believes, but I'll take it!
    After watching MSU a couple of times against lesser talent...
    My guess is a little more generous for us.
    42-10
    I don't see em stopping our passing game. nor our rushing attack.

    MSU will try to play physical, but they can't stop us.
    My hope is that MSU doesn't resort to Dirty Play like LSU did.

    Yeah, I don't feel like we're as taxed this go 'round as we have been in the past coming off this game. We're nicked up, no doubt, but by half time I was convinced LSU couldn't move the ball on them and my guess is our boys thought the same thing. They played very relaxed and it showed. The good thing is MSU's offense isn't much better than LSU's, IMO. So it's not like we're having to face a Johnny Manziel type passer. Nick Fitzgerald couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat.

    Playing against Fitzgerald will give us good practice for when we have to play Justin Fields of UGA in the SECCG. Basically the same player.

    Alabama's lines of scrimmage will be tested more physically this week than they were last week. LSU dosen't have the vintage linemen and running backs of recent years.

    Maybe so, but if we're able to strike early and get out to a 17-21 pt lead it drastically changes the "tone" of the game. Strike fast and hard and I can promise you even the Miss St coaching staff starts preparing for the following week.

    Bama, was 14 pt favorite vs LSU on the road won by 29, just more than double it. Bama 25 pt favorite at home against Miss St, so I see it 45-3

    If we can put up 31 points against them on the road last year with Jalen starting then we should be able to score at least that many at home with Tua. At least that's my hope.
