These are exactly the types of teams that are up Sham Mullen's alley. Bet the house on State to cover

Now if we can just figure out a way for Mullen not to have to play SEC games

I don't know that there has ever been a more perfect illustration of what I have been telling you guys for years than the game last night. Merlin had a pretty good game plan, both offensively and defensively. We even were able to make the 2 QB thing work well for a half and change.

We had pretty good coverage on their receivers most of the night, they just weren't good enough athletes against future NFL receivers being thrown to by a 4 (maybe 5?) star QB. Our defensive line was getting good pushes to stop the run, but when their 4/5 star RBs would break one tackle at the line, our idiot jobber safety would be caught peeing in the bushes again and give up a 60 yard run.

Merlin's system can win at MSU, we just need TALENT!

A safety isn't the reason for a 60 yard touchdown run up the middle Sherlock.

Uhhh I know you always are on Whitley's nuts, but he lanekiffin.gifing blows. He has since his freshman year. When you put 8/9 in the box and blow up a play and the RB somehow breaks the tackle, you leave the safety back there for SAFETY, as in.... you know.... to not look like an idiot and just watch him prance up the middle of the field. Sure, other people shoulder the blame for the long runs too.... but Whitley is the reason they were 50 and 60 yard touchdowns instead of 25 yard first downs.

The truth is the LB's gave cutbacks lanes all night. They scored 60 points and your blaming it on one player. He missed tackles and also created the only turnover we had. Good analysing there.

Chris Jones and Preston Smith created that turnover. Whitley got the INT but as usual, gave up more points with being out of position, bone headed penalties and missed tackles than he gave us with that int

We played man coverage the majority of the game. The ball was thrown outside of the hashes to the wide side of the field. Impossible for a safety to get there when the coaches force him to align centerfield. Keep throwing it will stick eventually.

Same s--t different day. Look good and keep it close for 3. Get stomped in the 4th.

I told a buddy at lunch that's who it was going to play out and he didn't believe me till it happened.

Seriously, the more I watch the hi-lights the more stupidness I see from Whitley. I guess he thought changing his number to 1 would make him better than AJ Green too? idk but he really is killing our defense. I might be a homer, but I really think we have one of the best front 7 in the SEC, and our secondary, especially our safeties completely negate it with how terrible they are. I miss Bonner. Never made hi-light hard hits for INTs like Whitley, but he sure as hell was a better safety. Always in position and almost always made the right play.

Nothing about you is a homer other than Stansbury. And Bonner sucked he never made any plays. However, I'm noticing your fetish for Tennessee players.

I'm thinking they must be related or something. No excuse for defending him seeing how horrible he is.

D Line especially. Preston Smith is tearing it up and Chris Jones is going to be one those "special" players. Anybody LSU is playing is no scrub and he was mauling their right tackle all night as a true freshman. Can't wait to see what he looks like with a little more Balis and play time under his belt. He won't be here more than 3 years so everybody better enjoy the show while it lasts...

And I'll say it again, we play like that from the start this year, and we're a 4-1 team not a 2-3 team.

Right now we don't have the talent of an LSU or a Bama so our only hope is to out effort and out coach those teams. Then when you dial down to middle of the pack teams and below and out effort and out coach them, you win 7-8 games a year and start to build a foundation for real success. You have to be on your game all the time though and can't have bouts of abject stupidity like OK State and AU....

I'm hoping (we all know how that goes) that Redmond can come in and be immediately serviceable. Justin Cox NEEDS TO BE AT SAFETY. Nickoe is no longer quick enough to give us help over the top. Cox, judging by his highlight film, just looks like a better fit at safety than CB. His man coverage isn't very good, so just stick him in the back and make him play center field. Kendrick Market has proved to be a serviceable open field tackler, so I say he or Dee Arrington should have the other Safety spot. Let Love, Calhoun, Redmond and Jiles rotate at CB and sit Nickoe.

I was a huge Nickoe fan, but he STILL hasn't recovered from his injury. He's not the same Nickoe we liked when he was a freshman. Pains me to say.

Relf has won more games than Russell. Mullen can recruit and Nickoe is still hurt. Keep enlighting your genius.

Nikkoe sucks. He got hurt YEARS ago. He sucks, stop defending him it makes you look like an idiot. Merlin's best players were all Crxxm recruits. His best recruits don't hold a candle to the all-WHIFF team. Relf sucked.
