i heart wes carroll
And, we've found ourselves a quarterback! True freshman Wes Carroll, with wisdom and poise beyond his years, directed the Dawgs to a convincing win Saturday over then-ranked No. 14 Kentucky. And with Christian Ducre and Anthony Dixon, State kept complete control of the game and helped dash Andre Woodson's Heisman hopes. No one can say Kentucky just "slipped up" - they just lost (so did the Rebs).
I'd be lying if I told you I thought for sure we'd beat the Wildcats, but that doesn't make me any less excited. Perhaps more so, in fact. This weekend's check in the "W" column puts the Bulldogs one away from the golden number 6, making the turnaround team BCS bowl-eligible, a sporty status symbol that has eluded State for years. How many? Don't know, don't care, doesn't matter. What's past has passed; it's 2007 now.
Hey fair-weather fans, it's time to bring back out your maroon. It may be stuck behind some LSU or Florida gear in the back of your closet. Dust it off and don it in two weeks for the Alabama game. And for those of us that never took ours off, we'll be there with (cow)bells on.
