If this is a close game it's due to two things, Alabama might be an NCAAT worthy team and MSU is probably not as good as their ranking...

If Alabama wins, they warrant a spot in the top 25.

woe woe woe, let's not get carried away just yet. Like I said, it could be that MSU is a bit over-rated and that the SEC is deep in 11-35 ranked type teams (A&M, Kentucky, MSU, Arkansas, Georgia, Tenn, Alabama).

A lot is going to depend on how well MSU defends J Walker. She is the one that hurt MSU last season in Alabama’s win. She is a physical player currently averaging 20 and 10. MSU had problems with that kind of player last year and so far that has been their biggest weakness this season.

I went to Miss St message board and some are blaming this on Vic because of what he left Nikki. I can't tell if serious or not.

State has a fouling problem. Not sure who that falls on, but we can't keep fouling 2x as much as the other team.

It is serious. Unfortunately the issues being faced this season didn’t start this season. Coach Schaefer spoke about it often in his press conferences.

While I agree, the defense is no where near the intensity it was under Vic as it is under McCray. I also think they go lifeless often in games and go through the motion, thats my observation at least.

Is the roster Vic left to Nikki perfect? Not necessarily, but he left the program with a lot of talent.

That roster is ultra talented. I wouldn't think their defense would have fallen off being how McCray is a defensive minded coach. But it has been horrible.

Its still too early to tell but I haven't been super impressed with McCray so far at least. The core group returned (Jackson, Matharu, Taylor, Mingo Young, Carter, Wiggins), Cooks became eligible and they added Madison Hayes. I was expecting better quality play for them. They just look extremely lazy so far defensively. They were fortunate not to drop the game to Ole Miss the other day.

K. Harper has also been disappointing to me as well. She might be a slightly better Holly Warlick who dresses better but without all the top 10 recruits.
