Cutting it close

Mmmm… this sounds a little bit dicey.

According to Dellenger, MSU is down to around fifty players.  (SEC rules allow a team to play with less than 53, if it elects to do so.)  You wonder how many more can drop before Leach is forced to cry no mas.


UPDATE:  Yikes.

Their special teams are going to be a disaster.

  1. Their equipment has made it to Athens at least…so there’s a decent chance I hope. The team having no depth has me feeling better as it’s not the same team that defensively played very well vs a good TAMU and held Kentucky under 200 yards earlier too.
    Basically I’d like a huge blowout win where Daniels gets plenty of snaps but the other QBs can run the offense too

    So you’re saying our backups might finally get some reps….

  4. So a team barely able to field enough players…all of whom have likely been exposed to the virus…are going to play our fully loaded team. Honestly, I don’t know why either Leach or Kirby would want this game to be played. Forget it being COVID…if MSU had a measles outbreak, we should all feel the same way. Again, this is not a COVID vs muh freedom observation, but a normal “we’re going to get all our kids sick playing them” concern.

    It feels like this play vs. no play decision is bigger than just this game. Any additional postponements are effectively cancelations, which quickly puts the entire SEC standings in bind. Florida’s SECe title asterisk gets bigger by the day.

      FL beat our ass fair and square. We don’t have to like it, but I see no * from that game.

        I agree with you about our game. Florida beat our ass fair and square.

        But I wouldn’t cry at all if the season got cut short and Florida was left whining about their SECE championship taken away.

      • I see plenty — from a pandemic putting us down to our pre-season 3rd and 4th string QBs playing, to defensive injuries. But mostly I’ll give them no credit because I had to hear for years that 2007 only happened because Tebow was too injured to play well (even though he wasn’t on defense). So FTMF.

    Good thing you can only play 11 at a time. I believe I read somewhere that the flight has been booked…. not sure if they’ve left or not.

    Thinks odds have increased to play, rather than looking 50/50 to play a day or so ago.

    I never expected this to be a normal season, but it’s getting really annoying. Let’s say we kick the ever living shit out of MSU – bfd: it won’t mean anything. Then let’s not even think about a close game, or God forbid, a loss….. . Things are so weird, it’s hard to know what to make out of anything, except that BAMA is going to BAMA. If they play, I will watch, but will do so with a jaundiced eye.



    State going more guts than LSU…who wimped out on Bama.

  10. Here’s a question that may have already been answered somewhere: With the way we’re headed lately with games being postponed right and left, what happens if one of the two teams playing in the SEC championship comes down with the virus in large numbers the week of the game? Do they have a Plan B for rescheduling or will they be like the Miss America Pageant and trot out the first runner-up since the winner cannot fulfill its duties? (Sarcasm intended)


    • This was answered in an earlier thread: The SEC Office (Bama) will evaluate the options (that Saban approves) and find a solution (Bama) that works best for the league (Bama), the CFP (Bama) and their TV partners (ESPN, CBS). Money will not play a r…….hahahahahaha…Sankey almost got that out without laughing. The decision will be based on $$$$$.

    Pitt and Virginia Tech will be outfitted with face coverings on the field as well as on the sideline Saturday, in accordance with Pennsylvania’s new coronavirus safety guidelines.

    In a statement issued Friday, Pitt said, “In alignment with the recent guidance from state officials regarding the current health climate, Pitt’s football team will be appropriately outfitted for Saturday’s game with face coverings to use on the field and sideline. This is being communicated to Virginia Tech’s sports medicine staff as well.”

    Loading up on the Dawgs this week! This is going to be total domination.

    I know that we (smart overly involved college football fans) can get really deep in the minutia of every game and the various shortcomings and/or snarky regarding the game, but these kids playing do take great risks for our entertainment (I realize that they also have motives of their own) and that shouldn’t be overlooked or taken for granted. With that said go Dawgs but respect to the faux dogs too.

    Off-topic, but with Trey Hill’s previous snapping issues, wonder if we should install something like this:
