    Neal Brown playing Sucks

      I meant to say his play calling!

    3rd & 7 in a game-deciding drive, with the clock winding down, and Whitlow is inserted to run the ball up the middle – for no gain, forcing a 4th & 7 game ending play that everyone knew had to be a pass. Not the 3rd down play I was expecting, but once Wbitlow went in, it was the play Miss State was expecting.

    So many little things.

      Yes so many little things and so many little things have not changed. A large part I why they have not changed is that this is essentially a Joker Phillips recruted team. This staff will recruit more talent but they are not here het.

    I took Bill Currys players, picked one quarterback, and made football cool again.

  5. Hal mumme

    This has got to mean that Towles is gone. He can’t even be put in when both guys ahead of him are injured. Poor management of this young man since he has been here.
