Mississippi State Football (this is the year)

This is supposed to be the year for Mike Leach.
What will his final record be?

They are going to destroy Arkansas this weekend. Can they split the Ole Miss game and Kentucky game? Will their Air Raid Offense pull an upset against Georgia or Alabama?

It seems 7-5 is the floor. 9-3 the obvious ceiling.
I'm pretty high on this team. It will be interesting to see them play Georgia.
I'll say 8-4. If they pull off a top 5 upset, 9-3.
I see them dropping the game to Ole Miss.

The loss to y’all still stings. I think we have a pretty good team this year, but with our schedule I see us finishing
7-5. Would be tickled to death at 8-4

It's Leach. He will drop one or two he shouldn't and win one or two he shouldn't. I wouldn't be so sure about him beating Ark this weekend. Not because Arkansas is good but because this is the exact kind of game that he would drop.

Weird stuff ahead.

We’ll win at least 1 of: @UK, @Bama, UGA, @OM

We’ll probably lose to a KJ-less Arky at home.

Nobody truly knows

KJ is out. Our only good player in the secondary is out. One of the better of our pedestrian WR core is out. It's in Starkville

If Leach drops this one he needs to walk the plank.

This is the year. The bulldogs have improved so much under this new offense. They’re focused. They’re having fun. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re dark horses for the CFP

Imagine 9-3 being the ceiling for your team’s “year”

This is the year that the defense he inherited are all in their last year. The defense will drastically drop off next year.

So yeah this is their chance.

For this year? 9-3 would be incredible. The expectations were low with a new staff, new QB, a large number of starters from the portal and only 75 scholarship players. We also have a lot of FR playing.

The next 2 seasons will be the ones where expectations will be high to compete for the SEC.

We aren't sure but it certainly sounds like he's recovering from a concussion which would mean he's at least out a week on protocol.

My opinion since the off-season has been that State has a 9 or 10 win caliber team with a 7 or 8 win schedule.

In 2022, it would be hard to find a tougher road schedule than at LSU, at Bama, at Kentucky, and at Ole Miss. And then Georgia is one of your home games.

I really like this team but I have a difficult time picking them to go 9-3. Don’t think you can rule out 7-5. 8-4 would be my best guess, I think they lose to Bama and Georgia and split Ole Miss and Kentucky. I expect to beat Auburn at home and this Saturday against Arkansas truthfully needs to be a win as well, especially if Jefferson is out.

It’s called being self aware. If you’re not a State fan, you couldn’t possibly understand.

“9-3 sucks in the SEC, and if you don’t win a natty you ain’t crap.” The mindset of the Play Station football warriors never ceases to amaze me.

He's in concussion protocol assuming my source isn't making stuff up.

When people say "This is the Year" for Leach it doesn't mean anything other than we are starting to turn the corner and there will be many more seasons of success to come..

Most reasonable State fans said this year looked like a 7-5 to 9-3 season - the schedule was just too tough to manage a 10-win regular season with Alabama, then drawing Georgia and Kentucky from the East. The media picked them next to last or last like they always do.

I think we will destroy Arkansas this week. (5-1)
at Kentucky is winnable. (6-1)

We lose in Tuscaloosa, then beat Auburn and East Tennessee. (8-2)

A New Years 6 bowl game (probably Orange) comes dow to whether we can split Georgia and Ole Miss. You lose both of them and its a good 8-4 season that ends in a decent bowl - far from the 1-7 SEC predictions.

Offense should be fine next year, defense will take a step back but so will the schedule. Trade Georgia for South Carolina and nothing spectacular on the non-conference.

with UGA, OM, UK, and Bama still yet to play...i would say 9-3 is far ahead of the curve for 95% of CFB teams.

I'm pretty sure this is a falsehood.
