Make sure to click on the “2011 MSU Football Game 1 Game Notes” link above to get an in depth look from MSU’s website at this week’s matchup. In my opinion, Memphis has never been as bad as they are now in football. Ever since they dropped “State” off their name, they’ve pretty much been horrible. They’ve only won 3 games in the last 2 years; only had 1 winning season in the last 5 years; and last season they were last or close to last in their conference and nationally in almost every category except Net Punting. 2010 Memphis Football Ranking Let’s be honest…Memphis should not be a true test for MSU. But I do expect them to be improved from the last 2 seasons. And you hate to play a game like this on the road. Surely our fans will be in full force and we’ll take care of business early to make sure everything is clicking on all cylinders so we can rest the starters in the 2nd half and give some much needed experience to the young players before go to the plains of Auburn.
