Several of our new friends from Mississipi State have been a welcome addition to the board in recent days, especially since they provide insight on a team that most here don't know much about. One statement I've heard several times has piqued my curiousity:
And yes, this will be the best defensive front-7 you will be facing all year.
You're acting like you know what the hell you're talking about but Arkansas and Alabama don't have the best offenses in the SEC. Auburn and Kentucky do. If you think you have a better offense than either team, you're mistaken. You put up ~150 yards rushing against defensive lines that simply are not as good as ours, I'm sorry. Get over yourself and your team. Throw names out the door. It's not a "the SEC is better; we're the most storied program in the country" issue, it's a "Mississippi State is a better team this year; we got screwed on bowl selections" issue (Florida was picked 2 spots ahead of Mississippi State despite having a horrible season because of prestige points. We should be playing Florida State.)
This is something that kind of got buried in a thread that made its way to the third page of the MGoBoard that I thought deserved some additional consideration by the populace at large. So what say you, fine posters of MGoBoard, does Mississippi State have the best defensive line (or front 7) that Michigan plays this year?
