I watched the game last night.
Last weekend I was thinking UMiss would beat us by 50+. But then my faulty optimism gland released too much of it into my system again and I began to believe it wouldn’t be so bad. I expected UMiss to win, but I actually thought we might have a chance. MSU could play the spoiler and pull it off. Stupid optimism. Maybe I’ll learn one day. But at least it wasn’t 50+. It was only 31-0.
But now Sherrill is gone, and we’ll supposedly name a new coach in the next week. Some thought it was already going to be done. But my excitement over that is done for. I think just about anybody named will be both lauded and criticized. No matter who it is, this much is true. He has a heck of a job on his hands. The last two years Miss State has only won three games. That was worse than pitiful. But this year, this was the year we brought it out of the pits of despair. But alas, we only win two games. TWO FREAKING GAMES.!! Sheesh.
At least we still have basketball and baseball.
