    Keep your head up Coach McCray-Penson

    Talkers will talk, haters will hate....But, remember our Heavenly Father's words...."FEAR NOT." He didn't bring you this far to leave you now. Again, keep your head up coach. Stay in faith.

    What is she sick because I don't think god really cares about sports. If he did Bama would not have all those NC's.

    Of course he cares, that's why the Cowboys had a hole in their roof all those years - so God could watch.***

    Evaluating, critiquing, and expressing an opinion is not hating. A talk board or talk show talks it is what they do. Don't think I've seen any coach hate?

    God will not leave us nor forsake us as believers but no where does God promise to help us win games or make lots of money, etc. There are many things in life that God gave us the freewill to choose our path and direction so we have responsibility as well in our results. God's mission for all people is to glorify Him in our life.

    Hope coach is successful there and in the process wins some games at MSU. Can't get better though without taking a serious look at our own failures and correcting those mistakes. Vic did that as he went along. No harm in that.

    It's fair to critique her IMO. She came into what most people believed was a talented team and so far they have underperformed. Welcome to the Big Leagues. This isn't Old Dominion.

    (Our Father sees the bigger picture, he's the actual author..he cares about the people that coach and play, fans, ect...concerns them..it concerns him) This bigger than basketball, sports.... Talkers and haters hurt people emotionally and other ways, create doubts, ect....spiritual. Also, people have been bashing Coach McCray-Penson on Twitter. Saw where people were even bashing the clothes she wears to games. A good bit of Miss. State fans are hating on the fact that she and her players took a stand regarding the racial tension, climate going on in the United States, other places in the world...they take different views, have sided against her, rooting for her to fail, bad mouthing her on media platforms, ect. Coach McCray-Penson has overcome cancer and other life challenges..our Heavenly Father has been with her, through it all, and now at Miss. State dealing with fans hating on her stance regarding the the racial climate, also..her being a black woman taking over Coach Schaefer's job, ect....he's still with her

    My Heavenly Father is always with us, involved in every aspect of everything we're involved in (including sports)...regardless wins or losses, he's concerned about us....if it concerns us it concerns him....he's Spirit, within our being.

    Multiple fans have come on this message board and admitted themselves that they have issues with Coach McCray-Penson's stance regarding the racial climate, her posting on social media, and her going to Jackson speaking on these matters, ect. Also, fans have posted on multiple Miss. State message boards bashing Andra-Espinoza-Hunter's stance on these matters...and her opting out of the season. Same with Miss. State football players that spoke out, opted out, ect. Sidney Cooks as well.

    When some of the Miss. State football players have spoken against the views of varius fans on these matters...posters haver come on these message boards bashing them, Saw where a fan indicated that they should be more like Dak Prescott in regards to their opinions, and stance.

    Big time coaches have to just get use to it. She is not the only coach at Miss State to get hammered. Hell Mullen was call Scientologist, hunch back, causing Eddie, Cuckold. His wife was hammered all the time and still gets hammered. I was in the Marine Corp. I only made 850.00 a month. Trust me no one was nice to me. They did give an extra 2.77 a day for combat pay. Pay me the money they are paying her and they can talk about my mom and will not give one shit about it. I have never said anything about her. I really don't care about basketball, both men's and women's. I just don't care but if she is going to be in that position she better grow alligator skin.

    Thanks for this post. It needed to be said. It still baffles my mind when fans blatantly speak their prejudices and biases, often laced with their political views (maybe they can't be separated bc they are often one and the same). I understand that when your Pawpaw and Preacher ingrains it, it's who you are.

    Players and recruits read this stuff. I know the standard answers are: all fans do it and the players can't be so thin-skinned. But these young people use electronic forms as their primary means of communication. They are more conscious and sensitive to the underlying message in these post. MSU is not Bama...we don't have the luxury of losing good players/recruits due to some fans living in times past. And I know for a Fact that some tweets costed a football recruit this year.

    Let me see if I can understand this. Probably won?t be able to because it is poppycock.

    When we criticize any coach, McCray-Pinson, Mike Leach, Dan Mullen, Ben Howland, Etc..., for not getting up off their lazy ass and getting up in the poor little ball players who may be sensitive because some kid pushed them down on the play ground in the 4th grade, WE ARE BEING RACIST!!!

    If you, a Christian can?t deal with that kind of stuff, what the heck are you going to do when the socialists the Woke crowd has been electing starts taking away your rights and tells you to get a number or a chip put on you so you can buy groceries? All the freaking snowflake poor little mistreated Americans have no clue because apparently they NEVER WATCHED WHEN THE ISLAMIST CUT THE HEADA OFF THE 20 COPTIC CHRISTIANS ON LIVE VIDEO BECAUSE THEY WOULDNT DENOUNCE CHRIST AS THEIR SAVIOR!!

    Don?t come preaching on here about feelings. GOD has a lot more important things on His mind as He sees Millions of Americans turn their backs to Him! HOW DARE YOU!!!! When millions of babies are aborted for convenience, you worry about the feelings of millionaires who are coaching a children?s game!!!! Get out of here. Go read the Bible again, And this time make sure you read it prayerfully. Because you missed the whole message!!!!

    People are prejudice because the team lost to a bad team and a SEC home game? Get out of here with that bullshit! This team needs to find themselves a bit. Coach needs to fix some things too. They're a top 20 team where they were a top 5-10 team.

    God doesn't "bring" anyone anywhere.

    Do we have free will or not? If not, then sure God can "open a door", in this case making Vic leave and Cohen think she was the best coaching option. But if Vic and Cohen didn't have a say in their actions, then she doesn't either, and what's the point of anything if we're just puppets?

    If we do have "free will", then the ONLY way this is God "opening a door" is if the Spirit was hinting at this course of action to everyone AND they listened.

    But even then, it's still up to everyone involved to listen- God didn't "bring her here" since she could have refused.

    And shame on you for thinking you know what God's will is! For all you know He wanted a different coach to be hired but Cohen didn't listen, or He wanted McCray-Pinson to wait a year for a different job. How arrogant to assume you know what God wants in the lives of others.

    THIS BOARD ATTACKS WHITE COACHES AND PLAYERS ALL THE TIME!!! gtf out of here with that "any criticism of McCray-Pinson is racist"

    A large percentage of this board wanted Mullen fired after '16, and he's still criticized.

    A large percentage of this board wants Cohen gone

    A large percentage wants Howland gone

    A large percentage referred to white baseball player Alexander as "Foam Bat" due to his lack of power.

    The ENTIRELY of the board wanted JoMo fired and a lot of anger was displayed about it.

    A large percentage of the board is still saying Leach wont' work here, and many literally wanted him fired after game 3.

    BUT, when a black coach publicly supports left leaning politics AND the on court play is far worse than we've grown accustomed too, then any criticism of her is motivated by racism alone?

    If this board really is racist against her then we're 10x as racist against whites, because the VAST majority of the hate is thrown at white employees. Most hate at players is towards black players, but then again most players are black, so what do you expect? White players get crapped on too, and black players get loved on.

    I could care less about her stance on race. I just want her to win. Right now, I am concerned but it?s still early and we need to let the season play out. It?s ok to criticize her because the effort seems a bit lacking although she is walking into a tough position replacing our best coach in history
