Well, I expected a loss, and I knew it could get quite ugly. But after going nearly the entire first quarter with a still scoreless game I thought there might be some hope. Not hope in winning the game, but making it pretty respectable. But after the first score by the Tigers it just made them want more…. And more they got. And got. And got.
I guess I’ve finally accepted it. We’re just not that good. The Mississippi State Bulldogs are well below sub par. The perplexing question is what is the problem? I believe we have good coaches. I believe we have good players. Are they just not all on the same page? As much as I hate to say it, I think it’s time for Jackie Sherrill to go. Yes, he’s done more for the MSU football program than anyone else, but I think it’s about time him to step down.
Will it happen? Dunno. I hope it does in a way that he can hold his head high. But after two back to back three win seasons, and going winless so far this year (after four games), I don’t know how high he’ll be able to hold it no matter what happens. Sadness….
Now the question is who do we realistically hire as the new head coach. I say realistically because I can think of many coaches I’d want to hire, but it’s just not rational that they’d come to coach in Starkville right now (Spurrier, anyone?).
