old miss game

Where was our kicker for this game?? Our first field goal attempt was around 35 yards and he MISSED???? How on earth do you miss that??? In the final 3 minutes of the game, we scored a td to bring the score to 20 and 17. The on-side kick was recovered by old miss but we didn't let them gain any ground and they went for it on 4th and 1 and FAILED!!! Go defense!! We got the ball and moved it down to the 35 yard line and for some reason, wasted 9 seconds trying to decide what to do and then spiked the ball - wassup with that?? How can you afford to waste any amount of time when the BIGGEST game of the year is on the line and you have no timeouts!! Anyway, we didn't get a first down and had to attempt (note, I said attempt) another field goal. This one was a 51 yarder and again a MISS!!! It was long enough but it was to the left by a couple feet. So, what I want to know is, did the kicker ride the bus home or did he have to walk??? I'm not usually so down on my team but come on....a 35 yarder and you miss????? Sadly, those missed goals allowed the rebs to have the golden egg this year - it better come back home next year!!

Tough one

#5Arkansas wins 28-14 and clinches the SEC West :( BUT our defense played AWESOME!!! And we did something that most teams couldn't - we controlled #5 Darren McFadden. He only gained 84 yards and most of that was in the last 8 min or so of the game. He's averaged 100 yards+ per game up till now. It was the turnovers that got us - we got intercepted twice. We out played Arkansas in EVERY way - our stats are way better then theirs but the turnovers did us in in the end. We had more yardage, more first downs, more 3rd conversions, every stat was better but it wasn't enough!
Next week, old miss! They've done just as a good a job this season as we have and are sharing the space at the bottom of the SEC with us.
Beware the thumb!! Auburn lived up to that prediction and beat Bama today in the big rivalry game, the Iron Bowl. Bama just hasn't had a good team in several years now.
On the lighter side - during each game, Bellsouth sponsors a trivia question of the game. Today's question referred to our win over Arkansas to win the SEC West (sound familiar?) and it was asking something about the QB and the answer was Wayne Madkin. Well, who were they asking the question of?? Wayne Madkin. He answered simply, I reckon that was me! :)

Dogs over Bama 24-16!!! WooHoo!!! Our first SEC road win in 23 games!! And boy was it good!!! The only time we were behind was on Bama's first possession, they score a field goal. After that, it was all MSU!! As I think back, Bama has NOT scored an offensive touchdown on MSU in 2 years now - this year's only touchdown for the Crimson Tide was a pick by the defense, the rest of their score came thru the foot of their field goal kicker. I would have to say, however, that the Georgia game was still our best played game in spite of our loss to them but this one is right on its heels - I'm still high from this win! You should have heard the crowd...oh wait, that's right, you couldn't hear them over the roar of the couple hundred or so MSU fans that were partying the afternoon away :) The 90000+ Bama fans were stone silent quite awhile during this game although they did have stretchs where they cheered their team on to a hopeless game. We held Bama on several occassions to a field goal when they were down very close to a touchdown - one time the ball was on the 2 yard line but our defense held fast and forced the kick. MSU is considered doormat of the SEC but there's hope for us yet. Right this second, we have a record that is equal to our rival 90 miles to the north - they are doing no better then us at all and our rivalry continues when we play them Thanksgiving weekend. But first....our first off week this season is this weekend and what good timing (although, I would prefer it had been much earlier) as we have Arkansas coming to our house and a very good Arkansas team they are. 9-1 on the season and flying high. We'll have to play our best game of the season if we're to have any hope at all. But we can do it, just ride that momentum of a BIG win over Bama onto Scott field and we can do it. GO DAWGS GO!!!!!!!!!
Go check these out - first
btw - as an afternote and changing the subject, my brother and his wife are expecting their second child next summer!
