WoW! I'm in Dog/Dawg heaven today - both of my dogs won their game!! MSU beat ole miss and Ga beat Ga Tech just now! What a battle Ga had - the 2 teams were tied until very late in the 4th quarter when Ga finally scored a touchdown. And in the final 1.5 min, Ga intercepted the Ga Tech pass to seal the game. AWESOME!!! WoW! What a great ending to a great day!


GO DAWGS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MSU just won their first SEC game this season over our in-state rivals, old miss. 35-14 + as an added bonus, old miss is in last place and not us!!! Our team was like a brand new team out on the field everything went their way. We had 4 interceptions - 3 caught by the same player. We had a player go back to back 1000 yard seasons (although, you wouldn't know it by our record lately) and that same player rushed for 204 yds in today's game! Way to go Jerious!
It was awesome to see the stands remain full and for awhile there, I thought we were back in one of our winning seasons as the stadium rocked and was extremely noisy. I think if the fans would do that every game, we might be able to win more games. I believe that most of our fans are fickle and will only support the team when they are winning and there aren't enough of us die-hards out there to pick up the slack and push the team through.
Anyway, they'll be partying going on throughout Starkville tonight I expect!

Arkansas game

Well, I drove 5 1/2 hrs to watch my BullDawgs play and then lose to the Arkansas Razorbacks. I was not impressed with the stadium in Little Rock at all - it wasn't much more then a built up high school field and wasn't much different then our biggest rival to the north's stadium before they built their's up. But we had fun while it lasted! The Razorbacks started the game super hot - scoring their first 14 points in under 5 min. We just couldn't do anything - our defense was working but not accomplishing much of anything and our offense couldn't get past the 30 yard line. That first quarter was the first time ever that I just felt like leaving the game and driving back home - usually I don't want to leave but it just got to be too much yesterday. But once I got into the game (and believe, my throat is still sore) it became a more enjoyable game. I was GREATLY disturbed (and I'm not the only one) by the fact that our cheerleaders did nothing - just stood around trying to look cute. When they were finally coaxed into doing something, the Dawgs scored a touchdown - coincidence?? Maybe not - the players can hear the cheering and when there is none, may feel that everyone has truly given up on them and why should they keep trying. And what is up with the fans who come to the game and then proceed to talk smack about the players and coaches on the team? I find it hard to believe that you're a fan if you're going to spend the ENTIRE game talking bad about our team and calling them all a bunch of losers and moaning for the old coach to be back cause things haven't been the same...Come on, just don't waste your money and my time by coming to the game.
I'm just sad as I think that this coming Sat. game is our last one for the season and that other then watching bowl games on tv, I won't have football to watch till next season. :(
I had only driven thru 1 small portion of Ark. years ago and was surprised as I drove yesterday to find that there is nothing at all in this section of Ark. I mean once we left Memphis, that was it until we got to Little Rock. There might have been a small town or 2 but all we ever saw were a couple of exit signs, no sign of life anywhere.
Well, I'll stop ranting now and get on with better things - next week's game is against our rival Ole Miss and all will be alright if we beat them!

I'm looking forward to this week-end as I'm going to the MSU-Arkansas game in Little Rock. This will be the last SEC West stadium that I will need to visit in order to have visited them all. I collect cups from each stadium I've been to (and 1 that I haven't been to) and have a small collection. I've been to (of course) MSU, Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Tulane (collector's cup now?? - game was at the SuperDome), Georgia, Vandy, Ole Miss. I've got a cup from Florida Gators, SEC Championship game (we went in '96), and of course Shreveport, La for Independence bowl (otherwise known as Snow Bowl!). That bowl game was awesome - not only did we win but it snowed and that is a rarity in the South. Can you guess that I like to travel?? :)

A Day in the SEC

Wow! What a day yesterday was for SEC teams - upsets galore! We saw Alabama lose their first game this season to LSU (who they have always had trouble beating). We saw Florida get beat by South Carolina - Wow and I thought Carolina was on a losing track this season but it appears they have improved dramatically. We also saw Georgia (my favorite team in the SEC east) get beat by Auburn by 1 lousy point. I would not have placed my hopes on Auburn beating Georgia but they did. Oh, and it looks like Georgia will still make it to the SEC championship game thanks to SC beating Florida. In the West, its still open but LSU is favored to go to the championship game. Looks like old Miss's hopes for a bowl game invite flew out the window as Arkansas beat them. My Dawgs had an off week this week but we travel to play Arkansas next week followed by old Miss the following week. Vandy had a close one yesterday with Ky. I was really rooting for Vandy this year as they have had many, many bad season lately and started off this season on a hot streak but I don't think they'll make it to a bowl game this year. What has happened to Tenn. this year? They have a losing record right now and they were predicted to go the SEC championship game at the beginning of the season? Is it time for Fulmer to take his leave? Well, I reckon I'll take my leave for now!

A bit behind

Ok, ok. I never got around to posting after the Kentucky game and with good reason. I had a bit of an accident at a local store (name intentionally withheld to save their face). It involved me sliding thru someone's not to recent vomit (yuck!) and landing squarely on my knee. I have a bruised nerve in the knee and it can be painful - even when hit by just my dog's waggin tail! Anyway, I have absolutely nothing good to say about the team after the Ky game so I won't - they sucked!
HOWEVER, in spite of the loss, I have to commend my Dawgs on a game well played against Alabama. The score was 17-0 (sounds worse then it was) and Ala only scored 1 offensive field goal. The other 14 points came due to turnovers from us that their special teams and defense capitalized on. Our defense played very, very well against a team that is SUPPOSED to be so good since they are undefeated. Personally, I think they should have dropped in the polls since they suxed so badly against a team that's only won 2 games this season! I'm glad they didn't go up in the polls - although it would be kinda cool to see an SEC team go undefeated again as Auburn did last year. The last time they were in the state (3 weeks ago), they barely escaped with their record intact as that other university to the north of us kept up with them and Alabama won by a field goal with just 3 seconds left in the game.
We have this week off and then travel to Little Rock to play at Arkansas and then home for the annual 'Egg Bowl' with old miss. All is forgiven if we beat our in-state rival!
This coming week-end, our basketball season gets started and it ought to be interesting to see how we do as we have NO starters returning from last year and have mostly freshman on the team. The joke is, we'll have to wait till baseball season to see a team with a winning record!
