"Super-Secret" Scrimmage this Saturday at Miss. State
Quote:Saturday, the scrimmaging is different as Mississippi State invited UAB over for a ‘secret’ competition. It is secret in the sense that no fans or media can attend, nor information—including statistics—be publicized. Howland isn’t concerned with p.r. on this point though.

“UAB will be a good barometer for us,” he said. A NCAA participant last season, the Blazers indeed offer Mississippi State a measurement of how much progress has been made under this new regime…and what more must get done before the games begin for real.

We've played them unofficially for a gazillion years. Why not schedule an official game or, better yet, a home-and-home for once?

What was our previous series with them? 2 for 1 (that's how I remember it, but my memory is 70% right about 40% of the time)

The last series was supposed to be a 4 year home and home. After the second game in Starkville...the game UAB was leading handily at half time. The SEC refs kept extending the game by continually adding time to the clock throughout the second half allowing the Bulldogs enough time to crawl in front and win by two in the last minute. There were also two or three mysterious calls that went their way near the end.

Shortly thereafter, MSU cancelled the remaining two games and the two teams haven't played a regular season game since.

FWIW, the first 2 or 3 secret scrimmages were against Georgia Tech, another team that won't play us when it counts.
