To be honest with you guys, I really was not planning on writing an article today. However, you guys will not believe this:

Jonathan Flippo, a recent high school graduate from Mississippi, wrote on a College Football forum on Facebook, that the Mississippi State Bulldogs would win the SEC West, and go 11-1 this season—with their only loss coming at LSU!

Of course, Flippo also predicted that the Mississippi State Bulldogs would be 4-0 heading into their showdown in Baton Rouge with the LSU Tigers. However, he would not stop there.

Moreover, Flippo added that he also believes that Mississippi State will CRUSH their first four opponents, which include Louisiana Tech, Auburn, and Georgia Tech.

After being asked whether he was being serious about all of this, Flippo responded by saying that he was VERY CONFIDENT that Mississippi State would CRUSH Louisiana Tech, Auburn, and Georgia Tech!

What’s more is that Flippo also said that he was CONFIDENT that Mississippi State would WIN ALL THREE of their post-LSU road games—@ Tennessee, @ Alabama, and @ Mississippi.

Of course, Flippo tops this all off, by saying that he believes that Mississippi State will represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game—where he predicts the Georgia Bulldogs will beat the Mississippi State Bulldogs!

Obviously, this was NOT a realistic preview of the Bulldogs’ season! That is why I am writing an article today. Unlike Flippo, I actually have a realistic preview of the Bulldogs’ season. Here it is:

Aug. 30 @ Louisiana Tech – Week 1

In the battle of the Bulldogs, Derek Dooley’s upstart Louisiana Tech Bulldogs hold serve at home, to defeat the Mississippi State Bulldogs. And NO, Louisiana Tech will NOT need overtime to win this game!

My projected outcome for Mississippi State in this game: Loss

Mississippi State’s record after this game: 0-1 overall

Sept. 6 vs. Southeastern Louisiana – Week 2

After losing to the upstart Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, Mississippi State bounces back with an easy victory over Southeastern Louisiana, a terrible FCS team.

My projected outcome for Mississippi State in this game: Win

Mississippi State’s record after this game: 1-1 overall
