It has been a crazy week leading up to playing the Crimson Tide on Saturday.

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at Louisiana State Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Bulldog fans. It’s Maroon Friday! We made it through another work week. It’s time to sit back, relax and watch the horror film scheduled for Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. However, I’m not necessarily here to discuss the game on Saturday, though we’ll touch on it. I want to find the answer to the following question: WHAT THE H*CK IS GOING ON?

We’ve got players leaving, including star running back Kylin Hill, but WHO REALLY KNOWS if Hill is leaving? And during all this drama, we’ve got head coach Mike Leach standing confidently in front of the media as if he’s not fazed even a little. We have all of the above happening at Mississippi State. With that said, I’d like to take a look at all the drama from this past week and open up a discussion with Mississippi State fans so I can hear your thoughts on everything.

Players are entering the transfer portal left and right.

This week on Twitter, our account made the joke that everyone, including you, has entered the transfer portal due to so many players deciding to leave at once. First we thought it was Hill, then we found out about Garrett Shrader and then several more! I hope this ends soon. It’s never good to lose depth. Why do you think this is happening?

Who will take the snaps if both Costello and Rogers both go down?

Our friend, cristilmethod, let you know that you are now the third-string quarterback of the Mississippi State Bulldogs. This is a serious question, though. Who would step in and play quarterback since both Jalen Mayden and Garrett Shrader entered the transfer portal? I don’t expect them to be on the field anymore since Leach is basically pruning the Mississippi State football team. Who do you think would step in and take the snaps under center if both K.J. Costello and Will Rogers go down?

Mike Leach. What’s he thinking?

I lean on the logical side of why all of this craziness is going on inside the Mississippi State football program. I think Leach wants to build the program the way he’s built every other program in the past.

His records speak for themselves. Trust the process. Don’t expect greatness right away. Former head coach Joe Moorhead led MSU fans to believe the Bulldogs would win a national championship in his first year. It doesn’t work that way. Leach will win at Mississippi State, but it will take time.
