1st SEC Game of 2006

The Carolina - State game was not enjoyable to watch - close on the scale of the Memphis - UCLA Elite 8 game. Hands down, the punter/kicker for Carolina, Ryan Succop, stole the show last night with three field goals and an excellent decision to tuck and run the ball for a 1st down, avoiding a blocked punt. State's defense looked good as did Carolina's, but I think both offenses (granted State played without their starting QB in the 2nd Half - but he wasn't all that impressive) had something to do with that. This is Croom's 3rd year at Starkville, and I have yet to notice an improvement with the team since he took over. Things should get interesting in Starkville, if and when the time comes for his head to roll. Based on last night, I'm not to confident in my prediction of State going 4-4 in the conference - it will now require them to pull off at least 1 major upset. Hopefully, that will not come next weekend.
