    We’re banged up enough on offense to affect our scoring. I just hope we can keep Tua clean and protect that knee.

    As far as I know, we’re reasonably healthy on defense. And the Bullies are even more one-dimensional than LSU, and not as talented. So I think they have real trouble moving the ball.

    I just don’t see them scoring against our 1st D unless we help them. I say 28-10. I would have said 31-10, but that would require us to kick a FG.

    So, you're counting on four TDs and two safeties?

    MSU ran for almost 180 yds last year and I think our front seven has been challenged this week to play more physical than they did last year. I expect a real good defensive performance. MSU's D is really talented also and don't see us scoring 40+ but see us covering and winning comfortably.

    We were really, REALLY beat up last year on defense. Can't say that this year.

    My main concern is that our O Line must protect Tua. I doubt Jalen will be ready to play. Bama does not need any injuries in the game either... it will be very physical just like the LSU game. I hope Miss State won't play dirty like LSU either.

    Protecting Tua is very important, but if MSU starts dirty play, it will be time for Bama to start playing extra physical and to continue to pound away at them..............I expect every team Bama plays from here on out taking some cheap shots

    I'd take that score.................just win with no injuries, and rest next week

    Did anyone notice KY had more than 200 yds RUSHING against MSU? Who really believes their running game is better than Bama’s?

    They ran the ball 47 times.

    I think Bama's running game is much better...............that same running game that ran against MSU got basically shut down by UGA's defense.........I think Bama can run on them, as they ran on LSU, but it will be pass/run........

    Maybe I just don't get it but I do not think Miss St's QB is all that good. Yes, he can run and occasionally he can throw a pass or two, but he can't wipe Tua's boots. The Tide D will take care of any runs by the QB and our wideouts, despite some recent injuries, will do very well. I don't expect this to be a tough game at all.

    Well, they really have no passing game so that’s not a surprise.
    But - who won the game? What was the score? KY scored 14 in the fourth and State couldn’t do anything. They were probably worn out, and with no offense to help them out, I see a pattern. Against teams with good defenses State flounders, and I think they get stuffed Saturday.
    Actually, I like stuffed flounder...
