NU faces daunting task with Dawgs 


Thorpe Award winner Johnthan Banks is one of many Mississippi State playmakers Northwestern must be ready for. http://northwestern.scout.com/2/1248876.html

Just Watch The 2012 Egg Bowl Replay... 


and it will show clearly that J. Banks (and the rest of the secondary) can be scored on when either in man or when he/they are involved in zone coverage.

Our QB had his way with them and Ole Miss WR Moncrief had 3 TD's and 173 yards on their secondary...and more specifically on Banks. WR  V. Sanders and TE Mosely each tallied a TD against their coverage as well. Ole Miss ended up with 527 yards of total offense against them for the night as their DL has little to no "push or pass rush" to speak of.

This may very well be the year that the Wildcats break their bowl jinx as your game with Michigan shows that you've got a fine club. I wish you could have won that one...I was pulling for you all!

RE: NU faces daunting task with Dawgs 


True, fast pace, uptempo offenses have given us problems. Our Defense did not play like they cared in the Egg Bowl and tsun did. Not going to get into it here, go back and actually watch the game. Banks was scored on once, by the tight end. I think the second big score where Moncrief burnt SLAY, Banks was blitzing from the corner. The other where you saw Banks running behind was what looked to be a zone converage and SLAY did not help over the top from his safety position. He was only voted the best CB in the Nation. So go worry about not finishing below .500 in the ASDFJKL; Compass bowl and leave these people over here alone. You have no business here anyway.

First off... I thought we had an agreement that this board was for teams .500 or better.


Second... our game against who exactly?  We last played Notre Dame in 1995.

RE: NU faces daunting task with Dawgs 


Oh, your team cared alright, but paint your dialogue anyway that you want, but the fact is that Banks is not the best DB in the country much less the best one even in the SEC West. He has shown and blown many coverages this year that cannot be hung on Slay.

The Wildcats can score on your "D" over the top and the proof is in the fact we only had 60 scholarship players dressed out for that game (yes, and still only a 6&6, Compass-Bowl bound team) and blew your guys out of a game that your Head Coach stated that you/he would "NEVER LOSE TO AGAIN". So much for his arrogance...and his prophecies.

My money is on the Wildcats based upon their strong year-end finish and they "could" be surprised at how easy this game becomes for them.

I'm out...GO CATS!!! biggrin

RecurveReb - just stop. Why are you wasting your time with this trivial garbage. We won, State lost, enjoy it but don't be a child about it. Good luck to both teams in y'alls bowl.

What "RecurveReb" fails to say... 


...is that 1. John Banks had been playing with a high ankle sprain the last few games, including the Egg Bowl game.
2. That 2 of Moncrief's TD's were defended by Nickoe Whitley, our Free Safety, who is still recovering from an ACL.

What does it say about a rival fan that likes to run down a great player on a board that he has no reason to be on, other than to slander the player?

Re: Just Watch The 2012 Egg Bowl Replay... 


Looking forward to the game...I am originally from Kenosha, WI and have long thought of NW as a great school with a beautiful campus.  I have a son in the Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola and had recommended that he take in a game in Evanston.  My other son just took a job in Huntley, IL. 
 
The Gator Bowl should be a good game between teams that are each pretty balanced between the run and pass - or at least want to be.  I admit bias when saying that our SEC schedule is tougher that the B10, but State staggered down the stretch when we hit the tough part of the schedule and our big rivalry game.  It is a difficult to figure out just how good (or bad) we really are this year. 

The big problem in the games we lost (and some we won) was stopping the short and intermediate passing game.  We did have some injuries and personnel problems in the back side of our defense; however, I think our big breakdown came from the lack of a push up front.  We have not pressured the QB this year - despite many MSU fans believing that the DL would be a strength going into the year. 

Anyway...I hope we win but that it is an entertaining game.  I suspect that much of the smack that makes it to your site will be UM'mers (either posting as MSU fans or not).  I know that you all are much to smart to listen to any of that.       Dave, MSUDog, Athens, GA

Let the excuses roll right in...get a clue, BBD2...it's called football and every team has injuries and have to adapt becasue of them. You're back to the msu "fall-back form" of the former years. What a MAROON!

Re: NU faces daunting task with Dawgs 


We are just back to our tradition and form with our most recent win. BTW, the series now stands at 61-42-6...Ole Miss' favor. The future looks bright! biggrin

This video should show some of the weaknesses that the Wildcats can exploit. Note #13 and along with other msu DB' cover skills:

This is seriously getting old.  Though you are couching your posts as informing Wildcat fans as to the state of the Mississippi State program, it is clear that your true aim is to rub your rivals' noses in your only decent win of the season.

We do not care about or care for your opinions.

Thanks for your very astute observation.  This is what we deal with from this bunch from Oxford.  They are very childish as a group.

Look forward to the Gator Bowl and we are making the trip.

I rarely post on future MSU opponent's board, 


simply because I usually don't like what is said about my team, but in this case, I feel I need to...this dude rarely if ever shows up on the Scout Board, maybe because he is banned or something or we just ignore him.  That said, I find it terribly sad that an OM fan feels the need to go to a future MSU opponent's board to talk smack about MSU when they should be on their own board bragging about their wins or on the opponents of THEIR future opponents talking smack about their game.  Of course this seems to be typical behavior of late...ever since Coach Mullen got there they've been trying to help him find another job (preferably at another school) by posting on other teams boards about how they need to go after Mullen and how he would be a good fit for that school.  How charitable of them!!

Anyway hope we play a good game.

Re: NU faces daunting task with Dawgs 


with all the back and forth between black bear and msu fans here set aside, I honestly can say this MSU team has been a mysterious one all year.  Yes, J Banks is a great DB but our secondary has been burned a few times this season.  It is a Jekyll/Hyde type thing.  You really do not know what you will get until game day.  T Russell is an excellent QB who does not like pressure and our OL has been inconsistent.  We do not have a gamebuster on offense.  L Perkins is a decent running back.  Our best looking runner went down with an ACL during bowl practice and obviously is out.  Our WR's are average and seem to have problems getting separation from opposing DB's.  That said, we usually move the football and can turn the game with big defensive plays.  Our kicker is a RS freshman who seemed to settle in more as the season progressed.  Mullen is a very good coach...offensive minded...as most know.  Defensively we seem to play quite soft, especially between the 20's.  UM had their way with this team in the season ending Egg Bowl, making some huge long strikes through the air.  So, it will be interesting to watch this game.  I have utmost respect for your team and school...have  visited before.  You played a very difficult schedule and had some hard losses to good teams.  On the other hand, our schedule was soft away from the SEC.  T A&M, Bama, and LSU killed us along with UM.  You may be able to do the same.  I hope not.  Good luck!

Watch RUDY and you will feel better!
