    Oh goodie. Two more choice coaches to lead us to 7-5 records with an 8-4 the years we scratch our a victory over Ole Miss.

    We ARE who they say we ARE!

    We WILL be who they say we WILL Be!


    If ya can?t get on board with mediocre, Cohen can go out and hire a 6-6 or 5-7 guy.

    Womens Basketball and Baseball are our two best hopes because more than 2/3 of the country doesn?t give a crap about either one. We came close twice in W basketball and kicked the door down after 3 straight trips to Omaha.

    State is cannon fodder for the Elite programs and even the Johnny Rebs are starting to rebuild their 20 plus win lead on us in football.

    Should have built the school in Hattiesburg or metro Jackson 115 years ago. Instead of in a farming pasture in the second poorest part of the State. Not fighting to get the Toyota Plant and the Tire Plant in the Golden Triangle was a Colossal failure as well. We need a 10,000 job industry to build in Oktibbeha County to get some new blood in and create high paying jobs. Maybe someone can build incorruptible voting machines in the area to sell to all 50 states!

    Two years ago, people were saying that Leach's offense would never succeed whatsoever in the SEC.

    A year from now, people will say that sure Leach was able to finish ranked once at MSU, but he'll never be able to sustain that for many years in a row.
    We ain't done nothing yet so nothing to brag about yet. Let him do something great and I'll gladly eat crow over his O pushing MSU to the top. I ain't seen nothing yet that tells me it will work at that level. We already showed we could win ave 7-8 games a year with how we had been doing it. The new O was supposed to let us beat the blue bloods. Ain't produced nothing, actually gone backwards.

    Year 3, put up or shut up. And yeah he'll get a year 4 or 5 like Croom so it is either bury our program or raise it up, no in between.

    Well, he finished 2 teams that finished ranked this past year, something Mullen did 3 times in 9 years. That's not "nothing."

    If you?re waiting on someone to come in here and consistently beat all of the blue bloods then you?re going to die an unhappy man. That?s not happening no matter who we hire. We beat 3 teams that finished ranked in the college football playoff top 25 last year. We didn?t finish the season like anyone wanted and we left a couple of games on the table (mainly due to the defense and special teams), but if you can?t see the offense is going to work you are really trying hard not to see it.

    I'm not saying that. That is what everyone who was defending the air raid were saying we had to do to move the MSU bar which is why we had to go air raid. The air raid would offset the talent difference. I'm saying the opposite. We proved we can compete and win the way MSU has proven we can. Has the air raid delivered on what everyone else said it would do? An emphatic NO!

    Leach has beaten 3 teams that were clearly more talented than us (LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn), 2 more who finished ranked (Kentucky and NC State).

    He also had 2 more who 100% expected to beat us and were lined up to finish ranked had they done so (Missouri, Tulsa).

    What everyone said is that it gives us a chance to beat teams that out talent us and it does. Look at who we beat last year. It's going to make us lose to some people we shouldn't if we don't show up focused every week because it's finesse and not smash mouth and if you don't come in ready to play anyone can beat you. The air raid has delivered here at the same rate it has everywhere else Leach has been to this point. If people like you would actually wait just a second and observe the actual facts of what has transpired since Leach has been here you would see that he completely turned over the roster and the team clearly improved offensively from year 1 to year 2. It is literally the same path that he takes everywhere. Turning a team that has been running the ball down people's throat for 100 years into a pass first offense takes just a little bit longer than a COVID year with no spring training and a year 2 to get a full picture of what we can accomplish. What we proved with our other offenses is that no matter how special of a team we have, we have no chance at all to have a truly special season. Dak Prescott is the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and his best team here lost 3 games. I don't want to hear how awesome the "other way" was. There is 100 years of offensive ineptitude that goes directly against that bullshit narrative.

    One of the best posts I've seen in a while; Quality Effort, Factual and an enjoyable read denied a well deserved rep due to socialism.

    I would assume our past history wouldn't warrant panic with a 3-7 followed by a 4-4. The only thing I can't tolerate is not having enough Egg Bowl Shits to Give and as an AD I'd let him know to fix this shit immediately or pack your shit because losing EB's every year is just that. SHIT.
