Mississippi State vs. Auburn - Game No. 2 - Open Thread

LEGGGGOOOO - IT'S GAMEDAY! #BEATAUBURN #BEATTHEBAGMAN (<em>photo courtesy of MSU / <a href="" target="new">Mansel Guerry</a></em>)

Oh man, it's finally here. After 364 days of nightmares of coming up 6 inches short of victory (insert dirty joke here), the day of (potential) redemption is here for Mississippi State fans and football players alike. State will get it's annual chance to break the spell Auburn has over us today, with hopes that 2012 is the year that it stops. The conditions seem right for good things today, which of course makes all of us seasoned State fans even more worrisome. Nevertheless, the game is close to kicking off, so come discuss what does (and doesn't) happen in today's BAGMAN matchup right here with us at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls!
