Tough Defeat. in Starkville....

Tough loss for BG, but a really solid effort from our guys.  Very proud of everything they did out there tonight and while I understand there are no moral victories, I also believe this game will serve to give us confidence moving forward.  That's a very hostile environment and BG was down early and they battled back into the game and had a shot to win the game in the 4th Q and that's what you look for.

Just listened to Coach's post-game presser.  He seemed most disappointed in BG's WRs who dropped several key balls, right up until the end on the 4th down play.  He mentioned it several times and seemed locked onto the topic.  Obviously, to win a game like this one you have to play pretty mistake-free ball, and those dropped passes might have given up the margin for error.

Also, Chris Gallon was injured (no further report on his status) and Boo Boo Gates was ejected for a helmet target in the first half.  His normal backup, Josh Pettus, is injured as well.

More to come tomorrow, but for today, even if it wasn't all it could have been, it was a good night to be a Falcon.
