Once More, Into the breach!

I've really got to start doing a better job on my postings.  No excuses, I've just not done it.
Now before I get into my football update, I did finally break down this past Saturday and join the 21st century by purchasing a flat screen TV.  Not one of the huge mumma hummers, but a 40" wide screen that nicely fits the spot I had. Got it just in time for MSU's big game that night with LSU in Baton Rouge.
That said, WOW!  State pretty much dominated the game, but mistakes made it a lot closer than it should have been.  However, the 34-29 score was wrapped in maroon and white and the Dogs are now 4-0.  They have 2 weeks to correct the mistakes and get ready to host the high octane (& #6 ranked) Texas A&M Aggies on October 4th.  MSU also cracked the national poll at #14.
My SHS Yellowjackets went to Florence, AL, to face the #6 team in the state of Alabama.  The Florence Falcons.  SHS pretty much dominated (again) 37-7.  In 4 games thus far this year, they have scored 174 points and given up 58. Outscoring opponents by an average of 29 points.  The Jackets are (according to (,ms)/football/home.htm) ranked #1 in Mississippi and #14 in the nation.  This Friday (9/26) SHS will play the Columbus (MS) Falcons.  Unfortunately, Columbus is not very good this year and I fully expect it to be a route.  I would not be surprised if SHS is up 30+ at the half and gives all the subs a chance in the 2nd half to keep the scoring down a bit.
Everyone Have A Great Day!
