Thanks again for great coverage, PA. I just looked at the DJ MSU blog & they’re calling for Croom’s head a year after he was SEC coach of the year. Surely that discord will help us in recruiting–those recruits (and it’s a really good MSU committed class, by all accounts) must wonder who they’ll be playing for in a couple of years.
Our team should compete for the SEC west title next year, if we shore up with a couple more good OLs & DBs–from what I hear we’re after some top JUCO folks at these positions. Then we need to pick up some 4-&5-star HS players. Several other programs are in a state of flux (Tenn., Auburn, MSU etc.) & we need to capitalize on that.
Thomas, I’m working out of the house right now. I didn’t have that problem this morning and again did not have that problem as I followed up on your post. I’ll forward your concern to our website folks.
Tripper, the attendance was disappointing. I walked through the Grove before the game, and the attendance was actually more than I thought it would be, based on the number of Grove “set-ups” I saw that were unoccupied. I guess some of those people did go to the game and didn’t bother with the Grove.
Ole Miss’ best crowds have always included a number of visiting fans, and State gave back a lot of tickets. Still, considering where the program was and where it is, it would have been nice to push 60,000 with home fans.
