Hold on wait a minute gotta put some Dawg in it??

Don't know about that - I think the game against Fla in the Swamp this past weekend had more heart in it then Dawg! My poor Dawgs have lost yet again to their third ranked opponent this year and thankfully, we finally get a week off! The score this week was 35-9. This game started off as a tennis match as we intercepted a pass and then 2 plays later, they intercepted it right back. We were both tied in the first quarter 3 all. And then it started. Who out there has ever heard of a game having 2 safeties and a blocked punt?? Well, you have now. MSU got hit with 2 safeties and a blocked punt AND our quarterback (Omarr Connor) went out in the 2nd quarter with a bruised sternum! I think after the first safety, all momentum went to Fla and stayed there the rest of the game. While we played a bad game, we stuck in there and kept pluggin away - playin with heart more then skill. I think the best play of the game for the Dawgs came in the 4th quarter when Jerious Norwood was able to wiggle his way 76 yards for our only touchdown of the game! And talk about an observant coach! Croom caught a missed call in the 2nd quarter and challenged it and won! The call was this - a Fla player was knocked out on the 1 yard line and Fla retained the ball BUT as he was knocked out, the ball came loose and hit the pylon meaning MSU got the ball!
Well, like I said, next week we have the week off and then we have homcoming against Houston. I hope we can win that game so maybe the guys will get a little more confidence. Our schedule doesn't get any easier - we still have Alabama (undefeated), Arkansas, Kentucky, and old miss to play.
