Our Bulldogs get their chance today to get back on track after last week's loss in Tuscaloosa. But getting a win today won't be easy, as Texas A&M and their talented quarterback, Johnny Manziel, will do everything in their power to prove they are the better team in maroon. If State can stifle Maziel, I believe we will have a great chance at victory, but stifling him has been a task proven to be quite difficult so far this season. It's Mississippi State. It's Texas A&M. It's the first matchup since that memorable 2000 Independence Bowl in Shreveport. Let's go out and get a win, just like we did last time. Hail State!
