Arkansas is 13 in the SEC in Total Defense…MSU is 12. Arkansas is 11 in Total Offense…MSU is 10th per the stats I reviewed. Their coach is on a warm seat…that being Joe Moorhead. Our coach, Chad Morris, is sitting on a bunsen burner turned up to a blue flame.
This is a battle to claim the title of the worst team in the SEC West…the loser will win this title. We know we are worse than Vanderbilt, but we have a chance to restore a tiny shred of dignity with a win. After watching the Maroons play 2-3 times, I have come to the conclusion they are a little better than us on offense because Schrader is a good runner and a fair, at best passer, and they have a good tailback. They run an RPO offense that will give our poor defense fits.
The defense at Mississippi State is piss poor, about like ours. If somehow we can get decent quarterback play, we could win this game. We are pretty evenly matched, I think, but the difference could be the small home field advantage our small crowd may provide.
A victory for Chad Morris may save his job which may or may not be a blessing. I love the Hogs and hope they win. One of these days we will be good again. I hope I am alive to see it. Go Hogs Go!!!
