Our fans ***** about not getting P5 teams to Hattiesburg, then when we sign a 2-1 deal with an in-state SEC team, we still complain.

We've played MSU 29 times. Only 5 of those games were in Hattiesburg. Not like we were playing them at MMRS regularly even in our heyday.

State has also signed 2-1 deals with USA and Tech. Like it or not, these schools are our peers now. And this is different in that we're going to get paid for the first game.

I think it's great that none of these games are season openers too. Instead of a summer of smack, we get maybe a week or two. We'll have a better idea of what our team is like heading into these games. And the last game being in Hattiesburg is a plus IMO. That will probably be our best chance to get a W (just because it's at home). Rather win in 2024 and not play them for a couple years than win in 2023 and then get beat in 2024 in Starkville.

I'll wait to see what the buyout and the guarantee is, but right now I see no real negatives.

Why aren't we playing 2 for 2? Why won't State play a 4th game here?? And why the hell are the first 2 games there?? They'll cancel the 3rd game and y'all know it.

Virginia, Kansas, Kentucky will do a 1 for 1....why can't we keep this model? Hell, wasn't the Nebraska a 1 for 1 until we had to sell one for eloss??

If OM or MSU don't wanna do home and homes then I say peace out.

I went to every one of them in JXN back in the '80s.....the 7-6 game was as good as it gets....

I'm cool with this....by the time it gets to the 2nd game, there won't be the SEC as one knows it today....

it's a chess move of the right kind....

Aren't we also doing a home and home with BYU? What is so special about a bottom feeder SEC school that they demand a 2 for 1. I expect that from a team like Louisville, VT, or Nebraska...not MSU.

State is 20-20 in SEC play since realignment. Better than Auburn, Tennessee, and Arkansas. If we signed a 2-1 deal with any of those schools, everyone would be thrilled. This isn't Croom's MSU, sadly.

And the Nebraska was a 2-1 deal before we sold the 2013 game to Lincoln.

Historically we played them at Jackson or Starkville almost exclusively. But don't let facts get in the way of complaining.
