Finally Friday.
Y'know, looking at this game, and looking at what LSU has been able to do to Mississippi State in the past few years, it's going to be fun going to Starkville and not having to worry about losing - at least in a few years.

However, this year, we don't have a whole lot of ballplayers, and that thin defensive line that we've been complaining about all year - yeah, that one - really comes into play in this game.

I'll be in Starkville at 8 or 8:30am tomorrow, so if you're going down, spot me an e-mail and we'll meet up somewhere.

Special Teams is the name of the game, my friends. They've been the most consistent phase of our team this year, so props to them. goes in depth about all of their accomplishments so far.

The Alexander City Outlook points out that Alabama fans should be ecstatic about what the future holds, just by watching LSU play against Bama the other night. Saban will recruit championship caliber athletes, and he will be able to coach them up to that level. It's a very good thing happening in Tuscaloosa. Read more.

The Selma Times talks a little trash about Alabama, but does point out that there are good things coming. He said that if you thought Saturday night was great, just wait until Coach Saban gets players that fit his recruiting mold. Read more.

I'm sure you've heard enough about it, but the SEC currently has 9 teams bowl eligible - and there's the possibility, with Mississippi State and Vandy, that we could have 11 teams bowl eligible. Sad thing is that the SEC only have 8 bowl tie-ins. Now, if Georgia can win out, but lose to LSU in the title game, there's a shot that they could get an at large bid to the Sugar Bowl, assuming LSU goes to the National Championship game. Read more about that here.

If Nick Saban had been the coach, you can almost bet your house on the fact that he wouldn't have let Titus Brown leave the city of Tuscaloosa. He would've been playing football at the Capstone, rather than 87 miles away in Starkville. But, alas, it is what it is. Read more about Titus Brown here.

This is State's first pre-game sellout since 1999, and their first ever sell-out of the stadium since their expansion. Sounds like a big game, doesn't it? Of course, I would have to assume that a lot of those are going to be Alabama fans, so we'll see what happens.

Comments: Hey - did you notice that Les Miles is on the watchlist for the Bear Bryant award? How ironic would that be?
