    So. Our offense went deep a lot early. Then teams started to eliminate the deep throws so we ran read options a ton but McSorley wasn’t keeping the ball enough. Once he started to run, the offense opened completely.

    If you don’t have a deep threat, joemo offense will feel condensed. Do you have a TE that can catch? You need a legit TE in a joemo offense as well.

    It took our team a bit of time to get used to the offense and we had a few shitty games as well.

    Shoop will piss you off more than joemo will.

    Before the season started I was convinced Moorhead would be at State 2 years max and then go get an elite Big 10 job. At this point i'm not entirely sure that staff makes it 4 years in Starkville.

    Knowing our luck he’ll suck for the next 2 years, we’ll get rid of him, he’ll land in the BIG 10 at Purdue or someplace and have them in the playoffs in 4 years.

    I figured he'd be Penn States next head coach if Franklin took the USC job. That's probably not a reality for a while.

    Sensing a touch of “the guys we have are good, they should obviously fit this new system offense”. Agree panic may be premature.

    in this day and age, the TMB narrative of "if you aren't making the playoffs by year 2, you suck" mentality is fucking dumb...all I'm saying is pump the brakes and time will tell yo

    He should’ve left some notes behind, such as “don’t run on 4th and long or 2pt conversions”

    And he inherited a team loaded with upperclassman that was supposed to compete for a division title and a big bowl game, this isn’t like he was inheriting rebuilding project coming off a 4 win season

    They weren’t going to win it, unless the entire bama team plane crashed. But they were most definitely expected to be the 2nd best team in the west preseason

    I’d say just about everyone predicted MSU would be 5-0 to start the season given what they had returning and the schedule they had

    On top of that nobody expected their offense to look as bad as they looked the last 2 weeks. 43 yards on 27 plays vs a gator team that isn’t very good is pathetic

    Not sure why this guy is free of criticism in your mind

    Beat ULL by nearly the same margain as Bama
    Lost to a surprising 5-0 UK team
    Lost to UF by a TD in a whatevs game

    such a disappointment

    For whatever reason he’s also completely overstating the expectations of MSU. Sure they’re disappointing, but to act like it is unthinkable that they’re 3-2 right now is totally disingenuous.

    Yes I’m totally going to ignore it because sorry Moorhead isn’t Urban fucking Meyer...the hills some posters choose to die on will never surprise me. Complete Transparency: I think Moorhead will be fine, calling him a disappointment for not being 5-0 in year 1 is fucking dumb, you should know better, Karen

    There's team performances like Taggart or even Frost(Nebraska's talent is a fucking joke) but this level of argument over 5 games seems aggressive.

    You saying “he lost to a 5-0 UK team and to UF in a whatevs game” is you brushing off how they lost it. I don’t think anyone expected him to be urban meyer but I think it’s fair to give him criticism for these last 2 weeks. You disagree and think he doesn’t deserve any

    Alrighty you are entitled to your opinion but we’ll have to disagree

    And I don’t think he has had a worse first year than those 2, but he inherited a much better team than Frost and it’s arguable that he inherited a better team than Taggart. Nothing wrong with saying through 5 games he has been a disappointment considering his MO was an explosive offense and what he inherited

    At the end of the day he still inherited a Mississippi State team. And that team went 4-4 in the SEC last year, and got beat about 100-10 in back to back weeks. This notion that it’s shocking MS State isn’t a top team is absurd.

    I don’t ever take much away from year 1 for any coach unless they are an internal hire (Lincoln Riley or Orgeron). Regardless if he had a good team or not, those are all Mullen’s players. Who’s to say they all buy in and are pulling in the same direction with the new staff. Every new staff has to build their own culture and locker room and that’s just as important as the players left behind in most cases. I think he’ll be perfectly fine there. Would you like better offensive results from an offensive guy? Sure...but I’m pretty confident those are going to come and he’ll fix whatever problems exist now in time.

    Do you think he’d throw 3 times when trying to ice a game with a narrow lead? The Franklin TO undoing the onside receivery was just insult to injury.
