Default Can't Take MSU Lightly

Spurrier said the Gamecocks' ability to pull out the close wins this season -- four of their six victories have come by 10 points or less -- have covered some deficiencies on all sides of the ball. The offense is ninth in SEC scoring, while the defense has struggled to maintain large leads. On special teams, the Gamecocks are last in punting and 12th of 14 teams in punt returns.

So there's plenty of work ahead, Spurrier says, and no time to feel good about what happened last week.

"We are fired up that after eight games we are in the hunt for the Eastern Division along with three other teams," he said. "We play them one at a time, play it out and see where we finish up when the year is over."

Mississippi State is coming off last Saturday's 28-22 win over Kentucky. The Bulldogs built a 21-7 lead in the first half, but couldn't secure the game until the Wildcats' last drive fell short at Mississippi State's 29 with 21 seconds left.

Dak Prescott threw for 268 yards and two touchdowns and caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from receiver Jameon Lewis in another impressive all-around performance. It was the second time this season Lewis has had rushing, receiving and passing touchdowns in a game.

MSU has played only one SEC road game where it lost to upstart Auburn by 4 points, 24-20.
Dak Prescott threw for 213 yards and rushed for 133 with two touchdowns.
The Bulldogs were able to keep in check Auburn tailbacks Corey Grant, Tre Mason and Cameron Artis-Payne, who had been the strength of the offense.
Mississippi State twice forced turnovers in Auburn territory in the second half, but failed to produce points both times. Auburn turned the ball over three times in all and MSU had no turnovers.

Default Re: Can't Take MSU Lightly

I'm not worried about this game, but I did watch a good bit of the MSO-KY game. The announcers said a few times that MSU was a good football team and they looked that way most of the game.

They have a true duel threat qb that leads the team in passing and rushing.

Jameon Lewis will also throw, catch and run.

These guys kind of remind me of UCF.

The more I look at the match-up, the less I think we will blow them out. Sounds like it could be an old-fashioned SEC barn-burner.

-----------------------------------------------

On special teams, the Gamecocks are last in punting and 12th of 14 teams in punt returns.

We've got to get better on Punt Returns and we simply need to score each time we get the ball so we don't have to witness our dreadful punting game.

This better not happen again on Sat. If we have players who cannot secure the ball, then they might do well spending some time watching someone else play.

I have been studying film, working out hard all week and staying well hydrated for the game against MSU. Wait, I don't play.

Our bi-polar football team isn't good enough to take anyone lightly including Coastal.

After we beat #1 Bama, we lost to KY the following game...

If we truly want to turn the corner and win the SEC, we have to avoid letdown games. We've had them every year since I can remember. This week would be a great time to start beating the teams we should beat on a yearly basis.

So you're expecting another "let down" game like two weeks ago?

Not expecting it, but it's the time to stop having them.

Got to start turning the tide at some point.

This is a must win game, just like last week. I believe the team knows that.

Yea I've gathered this too. I don't see why people think our team can just roll out there and destroy MSU. It's not gonna happen. This is a let down spot for USC kinda like the UT game. And MSU is a really solid team!

I expect this to be a FG game that can go either way. If we don't cut out the fumbles and miscues on special teams and penalties it could be bad for us on homecoming.

I hope it doesn't pan out like that, but your right. if we don't stop shooting ourselves in the foot, it could be another nail-biter.

Also, we don't know the team will react with Dylan under center and Shaw is still injured. not sure what to think about our offense going into this one. Which one will show up? The arkie one or the Tenn and first three quarters of the Mizzou game?

Still a lot of questions about our team heading down the stretch.

No one is taking Miss St lightly. We all know our chances of winning a SEC E again comes down to beating Miss St and beating Florida. We all know that. The team knows this for sure. I honestly don't care what our fans think, its the team that matters. The team is focused. I believe we come out and take care of business at home.
