I know it’s pretty early to really start making predictions about the football season. But other than the EURO 2012 Soccer tournament and the Olympics, there’s not much sports wise left to talk about this summer. So, just looking at MSU’s schedule for the Fall, how do you think the season will turn out?
2012 Bulldog Football Schedule (seems all games are now color coordinated)Sept. 1 > Jackson St. in Starkville (Maroon) Sept. 8 > Auburn in Starkville (True Maroon) Sept. 15 > Troy in Troy, AL Sept. 22 > South Alabama in Starkville (White) Oct. 6 > Kentucky in Lexington, KY Oct. 13 > Tennessee in Starkville (West Side White, East Side Maroon) Oct. 20 > Middle TN St. in Starkville (Homecoming; Maroon) Oct. 27 > Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL Nov. 3 > Texas A&M in Starkville (Snow Bowl Reunion; White) Nov. 10 > LSU in Baton Rouge, LA Nov. 17 > Arkansas in Starkville (Maroon) Nov. 24 > Ole Miss in Oxford, MS
I like our chances in all games but 2. I still have trouble convincing myself that we can beat Bama and LSU. But I really believe that we could beat the rest of the teams on our schedule. However, I’m not gonna predict we beat all but Bama and LSU. I expect us to slip up somewhere along the way. The Auburn game will be a season pace setter. We must win that first SEC game and get started on the right track. If we do, it’s not crazy to think we could walk into Tuscaloosa on October 27 and have 2 undefeated teams playing one another. So I’m gonna go with a 9-3 record. 2 losses coming to Bama and LSU. I’m not sure where the 3rd loss will come. But it could be from Auburn, Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas A&M, or Arkansas. What say you with a little over 2 months before the kickoff with Jackson State?
