Mississippi State stats packs

First, here's the Bulldogs' stats for the year. So far they've been a disappointment.

Their most impressive win was at Miami in December... otherwise they've laid eggs on the road. I think the trend continues. MSU is coming off a win over LSU, but dropped 3 straight before that. Jamont Gordon is their "everything" player as he leads the team in points, rebounds, and assists. The Delk twins are coming into their own and Ben Hansbrough (younger bro to Tyler at UNC) is improving. MSU is a young team. This team will be a force next year... hopefully they don't decide to gel against us.

Side note- Someone is going to have to explain to me how a guy from Brooklyn, NY (Vernon Goodridge) ended up in Starkville.

Stats:
- .467 FG, .371 3pt FG, .655 FT
- 13 turnovers a game
- +2.8 rebound margin (no one taller than 6'9")

Prediction- Alabama by 5. I can't predict us to win by anymore than that anymore.
Gametime is 8PM EST (7PM CST). No TV so sit by your radio or jump on de in-ter-net to listen.

I can't imagine us winning by more than 5, either. However, if we were going to blow anybody out, the only thing that would please me more than a double digit win tonight would be a double digit win at the Hump or at UTK.

I still don't get the Goodridge deal either.

The Goodridge deal? Everyone knows Coach $tan$field is one of the best recruiters in the business. I heard he committed to M$U without ever having attended the campus. Makes sense to me. He obviously would not have committed if he'd seen the campus first.
