    -Never ended a season anywhere but Omaha

    Most accomplished Mississippi State player of all time. Top 3 player imo. Thanks for everything TA.

    As far as every day position players, I happen to think he is the GOAT of MSU baseball. Some may agree, others may disagree. Whatever you think, he sure gave us one Hail of a ride!

    One of the accolades you left off was he was national player of the year this year.

    Hope he has a helluva MLB career.

    With what he accomplished, he will be looked at as the GOAT one day soon. Hard to not say he is, just need a little time to pass as the legend grows.

    What people are saying about TA now is what people were saying about Mangum a couple of years ago. I agree that we need time to assess it. I love TA but Clark and Palmeiro did some things that are hard to overlook when you're talking Triple Crown and Golden Spikes Awards.

    While I absolutely love Jake Mangum, I never said he was the GOAT, but I realize a lot of MSU fans did. I always would have put Palmeiro, Rooker, Clark and Renfroe above him, but that's some lofty company.

    By the way, I am only referring to what they accomplished while at State. I never consider what someone does after they leave. If that was the case, it would have to be Palmeiro hands down. But while Palmeiro was awesome while he was here, I just think that ending in Omaha 3 times and bringing back the hardware once while being the national POTY puts TA over the top.

    TA had so many clutch hits that I can?t remember them all. He also carried the team offensively most of the season.

    Mangum was a great player but not the GOAT. If TA has good MLB career, there will be a third statue in front of the Dude. I say put his statue in the right field plaza somewhere. Thunder and Lightnin started it and deserve main entrance like it is.

    TA was clutch and put this team on his back at times. 3 straight CWS and NC and SECPOY and a National POY is pretty salty. TA didn't win NC by himself but we probably don't win it without him either. Golden Spike is just another pitching award now.
