One player not mentioned a lot

I see a lot of people talking about Nick Fitzgerald’s rushing ability for this game. The player I think could be the key is Fred Ross.

He has tortured Arkansas’ secondary the last couple of years. He had 4 receptions for 107 yards and the game-winning 69-yard TD two years ago, and 10 catches for 154 yards and 2 TDs last year. He had a big game against Texas A&M a couple of weeks ago. I think he’s one of the most underrated receivers in the country.

He’s a tough matchup. Mississippi State likes to line him up in the slot and targets him a lot on screens and crossing routes. It challenges the tackling ability of the secondary. Arkansas had missed tackles on both of his TD catches last year. His 3 career TDs vs. Arkansas have had runs after the catch of 35, 34 and 10 yards.

Gee, thanks Matt. Didn’t you have any pictures of dead puppies to post?


Make Ramsey the spy on Nick and put his face in the turf on every snap

Got a feeling this will be the plan.
