Whatcha talkin' bout....
Doing my routine internet reading this morning at work, I ran across a ESPN article written by Mark Schlabach. It can be read here. It is discussing "5 predictions for the SEC in 2006" and I about fell out of my chair because of #5.
It reads "The SEC season will start with a bang on Thursday, Aug. 31, when Mississippi State beats South Carolina in a nationally televised game (ESPN, 8 p.m. ET), dropping Spurrier's record to 0-3 in Starkville, Miss. The Bulldogs will be another SEC team on the cusp of qualifying for a bowl game and might have to beat Alabama, coach Sylvester Croom's alma mater, in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Nov. 4 to do it. The Gamecocks will take a big step back this season because of inexperience on defense (they might start four freshmen) and on the offensive line."
I feel strongly that this guy is wrong (border line wacko) and just trying to stir up some talk with making such a prediction. No doubt Croom will do a good job at MSU but no way his team pulls out a 'W' vs. USC.
What do you guys think about this prediction???? And note the kick-off of college football is less than one week away.....
