Because playing them 2 times just isn't enough. MState stats.
You should know Mississippi State's players by now. If not... here's a link to a previous stats pack.
- 73.7 PPG
- 46.8% FG
- 34.1% 3PT FG
- 63.5 % FT
- 15.5 turnovers per game
- 6.1 steals
Prediction: Can we build upon a big win over the Gators? Will the extra day off hurt the Bulldogs? Are we too emotionally drained from yesterday's performance? I say YES, YES, and NO. Bama wins by 2 and advances to the semis.
Hopefully, I'll be at the game tonight (if my flight arrives on time). If I am I'll take pictures and post them.
I know of the deficiencies of this year's team and the job done by the coaching staff. Still, people should be happy we won. The team played to the potential we all thought they were capable of (at least in the 1st half). Instead, some of our "fans" are upset we won. I understand all the issues... winning keeps the coach around longer, but geez... be a fan and hope for the team to win. If this team won the tournament and somehow made it to the 2nd week of the NCAAs would some of these "fans" still be upset?
The only time I cheered against Bama in any sport was the 2000 Football game against UCF. The season was in the tank already, no postseason hopes remained, and we had an idiot as a coach.
