Are The Bulldogs Primed For An Upset of Vandy?

Posted by Kyle Weidie on October 10, 2008

It seems to happen every year. A college football team makes an unexpected run….sometimes it’s a school from a BCS conference, sometimes it’s a Hawaii or a Boise State. More often than not, in the early going of the season, there is more than one undefeated hopeful. The year, the 13th ranked (AP) Vanderbilt Commodores are one of those hopefuls.

Vandy has beaten ranked South Carolina and Auburn teams en route to their current 5-0 record. Their road ahead won’t be easy: at Georgia next week, along with match-ups against Florida, Tennessee and at Wake Forest in the future. Now, I’m pretty sure the Commodores aren’t looking past the Mississippi State Bulldogs. When you’ve never been in this position before, you cherish every game, knowing you can’t afford to misjudge an opponent.

To this week’s game between Mississippi State and Vanderbilt…..how about some predictions:

My Prediction: The Bulldogs are rested, tired of losing, and desire to ruin it for an unheralded team. Vandy gets brought back to earth, 31-28 Mississippi State (I know, high scoring for two lumbering offenses).


In other links:

Sylvester Croom is making a move in hopes of making Vandy not do one of those “little things” – which is limiting turnovers.

Tyson Lee is starting, but will be facing the “real deal.”

Maybe it’s the coaching….ESPN.com’s Chris Low does not rank any of the Mississippi State position coaches or coordinators among the best in conference.
