    He showed he is an idiot. MSU a cellar program and Leach has us contending for a bowl. He don't realize we are like one of 3 SEC teams to go to 10,11 whatever it is now straight bowls?

    Mike Leach didn't make MSU.

    Yeah, but it doesn't really matter what we do. We are the worst thing ever, or we're the Mississippi Bulldogs.

    I never liked Switzer since he beat us out of Marcus Dupree by paying him to go to Oklahoma. Of course I also blamed Dupree, since he lived in Philadelphia and his Mom and disabled brother could have come to see him play at State. Dupree was one of the best RB's Mississippi has ever produced. He had the potential to be as good or better than Walter Payton.

    There was a nice "reverend" involved in his recruitment. Like always.

    I saw a Documentary on Dupree, weird how he never became a great back in the nfl.

    Payton is my all time favorite player, I watched damm nearly every game he ever played for the Bears and some in person at Soldiers Field.

    I don’t think there was ever a tougher guy to play in the nfl or anyone with that big of heart. He’d bring a dimension today nobody has. You never see a RB today put his head down about two feet off the ground and just punish the defender. Hard to believe the guy was only 202 pounds.

    He tried to avoid the rule about waiting til his Jr yr to be drafted in the NFL, so he went USFL. He was so terribly manipulated by people he trusted for their gain, not his. Best there never was.

    This, unfortunately. He was so used by his handlers. Sad.

    I saw Dupree and his buddies the day after Switzer gave him a Mercedes or a BMW I can't remember exactly after all these years. He was in Starkville on a recruiting trip to state. I was like really and he said you Gotta do what you Gotta do man. I knew him previously.

    He is not one of the best, he is THE best HS RB this State has ever produced!

    So would Rick Cleveland. Great piece Rick wrote on Payton. Sweetness arguably best all around player EVAH was my take after reading it.

    This is my plea for student athletes getting a degree in something other than underwater basket weaving. If not, they are more apt to get abused by the ones they trust! This is a prime example.
