State is so bad that if we lose this one then sell the outhouse because we have lost our azz.

If we can manage to somehow knock off Missippi State, then the worm may have finally turned. If not, then prepare yourselves for more doom and gloom.

The line is way high. This team shouldn't be favored by 13 against anyone.

That said, if we lose this game it's going to become very difficult to defend this team.

Line does surprise me a bit, seeing as how the statisticians on this site say numbers point to bulldog win.

I said it a couple days ago, I think CCM uses this as a confidence game, I wouldn't be surprised to see us win by 20+ today. Mississippi State is BAD, they are a very untalented team, least talented team in SEC.

On the flip side, you lose this game at home and that's probably all she wrote on the season.

With the line up change, it's their freshmen against ours.
Their 2 are 4* rivals 150s.
Ware will play Stokes.
We may be able to eek it out at home.

What're their 6,7 & 8 players rated, 2 of ours are top 75 4*?

The stats were given because the commentators had been dissing our defense using the points per possession statistics.
Conference games only they still show M State a 4 point favorite which could easily be overcome by home court advantage.
Figuring All games played we win by a large margin.
How close the game is depends on getting back to playing defense like we did early and keeping the offense going.
Play defense like we have last 4 games and we make it close.

I understand the stats, am just surprised by those numbers and the line.

If you want to haggle, Their FR 4 *s are 20s.
Not sure I'd call them untalented.
Young. Yes.
