|1 week 4 hours ago||Thank you, Sir!||
Make-A-Wish is an excellent organization!
Before opening MGoBlog this morning, I phoned my 8 year-old son's physician to request he be transferred to hospice. I, then, came here to get away from my thoughts. I opened and closed my browser three times before deciding to comment. I chose to do it as a reply so as not to hijack the thread.
My son's disorder, junctional epidermolysis bullosa, is painful and progressive. We have spent an average of 14 weeks in the hospital the last four years and attempted a bone marrow transplant in December, 2015. His suffering has reached a point where he would rather have his life end than attempt to continue to grit it out. It is heartbreaking as a parent.
I responded to your post because I want to commend you for being caring enough to help families in our position. The strain of a having a longterm sick child at home is indescribable. It neagtively impacts sleep, family communication, recreation, spiritual pursuits, exercise, travel, finances, and work.
If you know someone with a severe ill child, offer them help. Because life becomes difficult and confusing, they may not know what they need. Be persistent! They will eventually recognize they have needs you can assist them with. We have only survived the last 8 years because of the support of friend, family, and our community.

There are 13 potential opponents in the 14 team conference. If we were to do away with divisions, would it not make sense to lock in 3 rivalry games each year (leaving 10 remaining potential opponents), play half of the remaining teams in a given year and the other half the following year. This would allow for a home-home pair of games against every conference opponent every 4 years. It also leaves us one game short of the desired 9 game conference schedule. For final game, teams could play the conference foe who finished closest to them in the conference standings the previous year with the caveat that rematches are avoided.
TL;DR summary: Each year play 3 rivalry games and 5 set opponents (1/2 of remaining teams) plus the team that finished closest in the conference standings with whom you do not have a scheduled game that year.

The Mississippi State ROTC is coordinating a 5K to raise funds for the EB Research Partnership in support of my son. The race starts and finishes at the football building and I have been told the team will be involved (I am not sure in what capacity). I imagine he will be there. https://www.racesonline.com/events/sprint-with-super-gabe
If anyone is in the neighborhood, come run or walk with us!

|12 weeks 5 days ago||No Word Here in Starkville||
I have seen Willie Gay play from the sidelines and he was impressive. My youngest son was the honorary team captain for Starkville High School in their home game against Clinton last year. His play stood out as impressive behind AJ Brown who had multiple 70+ yard TD receptions. I remember him being fast and hitting hard. He always seemed to be around the ball.
My step-daughter will graduate along side Willie Gay this spring. I am a longtime resident of Starkville and have been a member of the Mississippi State University faculty for 14 years. For all of these connections, I have heard nothing and have no insider information. The little bit I have heard from the Mississippi State football program and fans indicates that they hope to land him, but they are not sure of his intentions.

took away the deep ball and allowed opposing defenses to collapse and attack the run game. I cannot think of a deep throw downfield after the first half of the Iowa game. If not for this, we would have been competitive in the playoff.

His poor recruiting, lack of developing players into NFL talent, and inability to hire competent assistant coaches mandate he be fired after one subpar season! /s

I remember the Ole Miss band came out at half time and the recorded voice of the band director said they would now play the National Anthem and they lit into Dixie. Confederate flags came out and a group of local got into fist fights in with the Ole Miss fans in the stands. A fun time was had by all.

10-2. I think we will sweep the home slate and lose two close ones on road. One of the losses will be at Iowa, the other will be the result of poor officiating at one of our rivals.

Orange Bowl then?

I did not read beyond point #1. Like most major college football coaches, Barry Alvarez is not a very competitive person. I am sure he will do everything he can to keep his team out of the playoffs just like Bo or Harbaugh would.

we will pass one team and one team will pass us in the final rankings. UM will be very angry and win a bowl game by 342 points.

You asshole! I have been up since 4AM working out and watching tape! I have a mock press conference to talk about the quarterback situation at 7AM. After that, a solo meeting to prepare an offensive gameplan. I may not get to work today!
I hope the /s is unecessary.
