Sylvester Croom Resigns!! A sad day for Mississippi State football fans and all fans of SEC football. Coach Croom was a great man. The first black head football coach in the SEC; he took the Bulldogs to the Liberty Bowl last year. A student of "old school" tough-nose, Bear Bryant football. But, this year it just was not to be. MSU ended up dead last in the SEC with a 2-6 conference record and 4-8 overall. But losing to rival Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl by a 45-0 loss was just too much to bear. That was the most lopsided Egg Bowl in 37 years. We wish Coach Croom all the best.
Croom will be replaced by Florida Offensive Coordinator, Dan Mullen. Read more about him at our new Dan Mullen Biography.
Miss. State only lost 7 starters from last season. Their top rusher (Anthony Dixon) and passer (Wesley Carroll) both return. On defense, Free Safety Derek Pegues is a 1st Team All-SEC Preseason Pick. Dixon, along with Anthony Strauder on the offensive line and Jamar Chaney at linebacker are 2'd Team All-SEC players.
The reason we think Miss. State has a legit shot at winning the West is because they have a nice schedule. They are lucky to not play the top 3 teams in the SEC East (GA, FL, SC) and they play no powerhouses in their non-conference schedule. Plus, there is a lot of parity in the SEC West. So, it wouldn't take more than one upset to put MSU right in the thick of things. And, the Bulldogs have shown they can upset the powers of the SEC West.
Still, we have to make a call. In the end, we predict that 2008 Mississippi State Bulldogs football will end up 4th in the SEC West. Still, they will get a nice bowl game; win it; and, end up ranked in the top 25 nationally in the final poll next season.
If you haven't heard already, Mississippi State's probation period has recently ended. The Bulldogs had violated NCAA rules in 2004. MSU will remain under the five-year repeat offender status with the NCAA until October 29, 2009.
