Once More, Into the breach!
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 MaxPreps.com (http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/starkville-yellowjackets-(starkville,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!
