    The delusion is real today

    We are in no way a good team. We make basic football mistakes we look out of sync we blow coverage. We are the worst team in the SEC in rushing, we are terrible on total offense. We are last in the sec in sacks.

    Stop blindly taking up for leach. I get it he was a national treasure, a quote machine , he was the pirate.
    Guys for two years every team we play runs the same defense against us until we get in the red zone then they use the end zone as an extra defender.
    The air raid isn't who we are at MSU
    We are not getting better we are getting worse

    486 (the best of the Leach Era, minus Costello's one magical afternoon) is terrible?

    It's a strange day to complain about the offense when it was the defense who let us down and cost the game.

    Youre just trolling at this point. We had 3 pts till late in the 3rd and held LSU to 343 total yards, despite our awesome offense turning it over to them twice.

    The D gave up two plays that is it. Our O has 2 awful plays every series.

    The O again basically gave them one TD. You Leach stat lovers, look at the stats. We should have scored 45. That ain't on D.

    Stats tell you a lot about where a team is going, way more than W/L record does. Only people who are bad at math think they're "for losers."

    And yes, I would much rather had a fluky win where we get outgained by 200 yards than any loss. But I'd feel worse about the rest of the season going forward had that happened.

    This! We are averaging 15.5 points per game at the end of the 3rd qtr. We're padding stats in the 4th when down 2 or 3 scores.

    Oops, I never defended Croom and was half-done with Moorhead after Kansas State and fully after Tennessee.

    When you actually do come back and win, or come up short by a score or less, you're not "padding stats."

    It's not like we were down 42-7 and got it to 42-21 or something. In all games, we've been trying to win late and the defense has been trying to stop us with their starters.

    Similarly, NC State (Leach signature win?) wasn't padding stats against us either - they were trying to win.

    If you waited til 2019 I don't know what to tell you. UK 18 was the game changer for me I was done and was told he was out after the UT game in 19.

    I don't know if you notice there are not a lot of good teams nation wide. Oregon out of the PAC 12 is good. No one else that conference is. No one in the ACC is good. Hell the best team in that conference got beat by a team that got beat by us. Big 12 is not good at all. Tulane took OU to the wire, shitting point out their ass at will against OU and Ole miss is basing that their defense is good because they held Tulane to low score. Well at half UAB is beating Tulane 21 to 14. To be honest watching Clemson today I question just how good Georgia is. The sad thing is they are probably the best team in the SEC EAST. Tenn is giving Florida all they want. Iowa looks good and could possibly be the best team in the Big 10. Let that absorb into your brain. Just my observation. Also A&M does not loo like a good football team. Arkansas isn't shit with out Jefferson. I suspect Ole Miss will get a dose of reality next Saturday. They will score points but Bama will cover the spread. KY is average but not above average. They are struggling with SC. Let's not forget about the shit show Auburn put on today.

    Right now the best four teams in the country is Alabama, Oregon, Iowa and Cincinnati. They will beat ND when they meet. I believe next week. If they win they could possibly be first not p5 to get into the play off.

    I can't take this serious. Good gracious, no wonder I disagree with so many people on message boards. I don't care if we have a thousand yards of offense, if there's no points correlating to it, it means Jack squat.
