Alabama vs Mississippi St....Trap Game???

Well, this is the game that got Mike Shula fired and basically coined the phrase" Getting Croomed".
This year, they look a little better than they did last year, basically filling this years mold of SEC teams, winning games your not supposed to and getting blown out on the games you should win. Case in point, KY v MISS ST, Ky knocks off LSU, and KY gets Croomed. Yes , it happened in a big way. This game, like most, will be decided by 3rd down conversions and turnovers. Should be perfect weather in the 'Hood that is Starkville.
Don't ever make a wrong turn in Starkville. Trust me. I think we will be able to run the ball and should be able to stop them. They aint LSU by not stretch of the imagination, but we aint Kentuck, we can pass and run the ball pretty good, and Miss St does not have the weapons LSU had. If we can get everyone 1/2 healthy, we should win by 10, barring any boneheaded mistakes coming off such an emotional letdown. I hope we beat em down and remind them that they are Miss St and thats all they will be. Auburn turned the ball over 6 times and almost ended up winning it, so we dont need to spot them any points. LSU gave us 4 turnovers and we almost took advantage of it. We need to come out of this game healthy, put this one away early, and get ready for Auburn. I would love to hang 35 pts on Auburn and crush their souls....only after we hang 45 on MSU...I think if we jump on them early and often, they fall apart. Its a freshmen QB, fuckin hit him where he dont want to come back in the game....Destroy Destroy Destroy!!! Hopefully Georgia fuckin humiliates Auburn and physically beats them down to where we can mop them up in a few weeks!!! ROLL MFN TIDE!!

We came close, alas, no Gumbo......

All the hype lived up to its billing...Alabama kept coming back to lead the game and simple missed coverages, tackles and bad calls by the worst Refs in the SEC still couldn't keep Alabama out of the game. There for awhile, LSU tried to give the game to Alabama, but Alabama would find a way to screw it up. We were going down the field to get the lead back, JPW throws a pass that Caldwell dove and got, and the refs said incomplete? Bullshit! So now, the diving catch is obsolete? Fuck that. Then,cue the Rex Grossman side of JPW!!

Alabama got it back, but safety Chad Jones burst up the middle to sack John Parker Wilson and knock the ball away. Then the Bama nation yelled "GODDAMNSHITMUTHAFUCKINHOLDTHEGODDAMNBALLDUMBASSS!!! It rolled along the turf until LSU's Curtis Taylor fell on it at the Tide 4. Perfect timing for a QB meltdown, at the apex of the game we had scraped and clawed and overcame bad calls, to throw it all the way in this punk ass fashion, was fucking unbelievable.
Two plays later, Jacob Hester dove over from the 1 with 1:26 left and LSU was still in the title race.
And even after all that, we still had a chance if Keith Brown catches and hangs on, but he got rocked and that was that. I will say this, LSU has talent, but has no discipline, and if they dont get it together against a deeper team, it will cost them. Les Miles calling a screen pass from his own end zone, that we pick off, would have been a Pick 6 against the likes of OSU or Oregon or Kansas.. I guess its all a mute point since if we would have went to OT, they win anyway since no one even tried to block Dorsey. My voice was hoarse from yelling, my BP thru the roof, and in one fell swoop, my game buzz was gone when JPW dropped the ball. Goddammit, he look Clausenesque in his futile attempt to fuck the game away. Its a love-hate relationship with JPW and til he throws another TD, its full on hate mode. Especially if he does not show up for the Miss State game.... I'll cover that one next....
