Previewing Game Day and a couple afternoon readings

As always when Mississippi State football plays at home, we at the Starkville Daily News want you to pick up the Game Day edition of the paper.

Released as an insert in Saturday’s paper, we believe we have you covered when it comes to information going into the evening game with Georgia Tech.

There is the Tale of the Tape that breaks down the match up position-by-position, there is a list of three X-factors, to go along with stories keying on aspects of each team’s offense and defense.

This week I’ll delve into State’s passing game with a little bit of information provided by quarterback Tyson Lee – a glimpse of his Monday interview can be seen in today’s early entry of the Bulldog Blog – and head coach Dan Mullen. On defense, I write a little about defending the Georgia Tech wishbone, and how State is using Miami’s effort earlier this year as a bit of a blueprint.

Be sure to check out the section Saturday before the game.

As for recent coverage of this week’s opponent to Mississippi State, here are a couple of interesting pieces from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

  • Doug Roberson profiles Yellow Jackets quarterback Josh Nesbitt, and declares him to be tough enough to handle his role as a running quarterback.
  • Jeff Schultz puts forth an opinion in his blog that, by season’s end, Georgia Tech will be a better team than Georgia. An interesting take considering the Yellow Jackets up-and-down start to the 2009 season, but, then again, that state’s Bulldogs have also been a tad bit inconsistent this year as well.
