Anthony Dixon Is about to Bust Out.


State's star running back Anthony Dixon is averaging well over a hundred yards a game, and I've got no doubt in my mind that he will break the MSU rushing record held by Jerious Norwood--and break it this weekend.

The Sun-Herald has a nice story on the Bulldog standout this week, and how he's only 48 yards off Norwood's record high of 3,212.  Consider that record broken by the second quarter, if things go as expected against the Blue Raiders of Middle Tennessee State. 


Yeah, it didn't end well--but if No. 24 hadn't been there, it wouldn't have even been a heartbreaker.

Way back in the day, before graduating from Terry High, Rivals.com had Anthony as the number 22 back in the country, and the tenth best in the Magnolia State. More importantly, he's just gotten better as time goes by--in 2006, he was hitting 4.0 yards on average per carry.  The next year that dipped a bit to 3.7 (offset by a personal best number of touchdowns), but roared back in the disappointing '08 season to grab 4.4 yards per run.  This year, he's averaging 5.2 yards per carry, and his total yardage this season puts him twentieth best in the nation.

Sometimes it's rough watching State go through the critical phases of rebuilding--but having a back like Anthony Dixon eases those growing pains by a country mile.  All hail Number 24!  I wish to heck he'd be around in 2010.
