Does the additions of Tommy Stevens and Isaiah Zuber change your predictions for MSU?
I've seen the media consensus of 7-5 5th in the West before and after these additions. So the media is saying that it doesn't matter who starts at QB nor does it matter that the leading receiver for Kansas State(who nearly doubled our leading receiver in yards and catches last year) are at MSU.

I do believe Zuber is bigger than Stevens just simply because we needed a WR who could catch. As much as Fitzgerald was at fault for not being an accurate QB, none of the WRs could catch his best passes. And honestly Zuber has proved that he will be an immediate impact unlike Zuber.

However best case scenario if Stevens works out I think States ceiling is much higher than is projected by most(I could realistically see 10 if Stevens and Zuber work out with a top 10 defense). If he doesn't, I do think State struggles again and we're probably looking at 5-6 wins.

I guess State is starting to become intriguing to me because I think they have a wider range of wins and losses than most SEC teams.

I was at 7-5 before the transfers. I think they are worth at least one win.

Stephen Guidry and Osirus Mitchell are only going to be better this year as WR’s. Add a guy like Zuber who is a legit WR and that opens up a lot of potential. Now, if Tommy Stevens turns out to be a more accurate passer than the other QB’s on the roster then I could actually see an extra couple of wins.

I'm in wait-and-see mode.

I'm a bit concerned Joe couldn't develop one of the other QBs, and am hesitant to proclaim some new person who has yet to play a snap for us as a savior.

Zuber was a good get though. I am happy the coaching staff went out and tried to address positions of need.

It solidifies 7-5 for me, with a better chance of getting to 8 (I would still bet on 7)

Mullen could hardly develop KeyT. Had a 49% completion percentage when he left

Remember. KT in the bowl game was great because of his running, not his passing.

Mullen left MSU great except for the shitshow of WRs and for that matter the QB situation.

And this isn't the first time he did that. See the shite show of an OL we had a few years ago.

We haven't had even subpar WR play since 2015, and that was when Mullen and Hevesy gave us the shittiest OL they could find.

Roles are reversed. We have a top tier offensive line with trash wide receivers

We have a more favorable schedule this year. 8-4 and hopefully a bowl win for 9-4
