TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Fresh from one major upset, Mississippi State is gunning for an even bigger target: No. 1 Alabama.The Bulldogs win over No. 10 Texas A&M makes the Crimson Tides break Saturday from a four-game parade of ranked opponents look more treacherous, even if the oddsmakers dont think so.The Bulldogs (4-5, 2/3 Southeastern Conference) remain four-touchdown underdogs despite that performance against the Aggies, who had been fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings. Alabama (9-0, 6-0, No. 1 CFP) hasnt appeared nearly so vulnerable but must recover from the physical and mental toll of a 10-0 slugfest against No. 19 LSU.I think the biggest thing is we cant have any kind of relief syndrome after a big, emotional game, Alabama coach Nick Saban said.The Tide has won the last eight meetings with the team from a mere 90 minutes away. Survive this game, and the Tide can win the SEC West outright with an Iron Bowl victory over No. 8 Auburn.Saban said Mississippi State is playing the best it has all season. The Bulldogs challenge is to see if they can keep it up after that 35-28 win over the Aggies.For us, we have a very young team and I want to see how they react, said coach Dan Mullen, who is 0-7 against the Tide but has produced four wins over Top 10 teams.In some ways, it is not a bad situation to be in. Nobody expects us to win, so we just have to go find a way to win the game without the pressure on us.Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey thinks it might be a boon to the Tide, just in case there was any temptation to look past this game. The Bulldogs racked up 574 yards of total offense against the Aggies.I know Mississippi States had a lot of close games that theyve lost, Humphrey said. To beat Texas A&M must mean theyre doing something right. That actually might help our mind-set. Theyre a pretty good team. Theyve got as many scholarship players as we do. Theyve got good players, too. You just cant take anybody lightly.Mississippi State must win two of its final three games to become bowl eligible, finishing against Arkansas and at Mississippi.---Some other things to know about this game:RUNNING QBS: The game features the SECs top two rushing quarterbacks.

You wont see that in any coaching manual is one of those obliquely slippery phrases that manages to deliver its core message of admiration wrapped up in a cloth of mild distaste, and is rarely heard other than on TMS or one of its many simpering fan progs. Visit a village green on an April Sunday, however, when the long shadows cast by the pavilion can preserve the frost until tea (or in this wettest of Junes, visit a field so cut up by a winters worth of football boots and a months worth of spikes, it would be flatter if freshly ploughed), and you may witness res and verba in perfect metaphorical alignment. That is to say, batsman and commentator conspire to give the term agricultural a bad name.In village cricket, of course, the commentator is a collective comprising the occupants of the office, namely the close fielders arranged around the wicketkeeper. It is traditional for manager and staff to keep up a running commentary on the batsmans efforts to send the ball hither and thither in order to hasten his own journey back to the warmth of the pavilion, and to start each idiosyncratic snippet of song that subsequently travels around the outfield in a sort of Mexican karaoke.What the f*** was that shot meant to be? is perhaps the village equivalent of the professional commentators coaching manual barb. Invariably the response runs something along the lines of four runs. After all, theres unorthodox and unorthodox, and in cricket, a shots value is ultimately considered in direct proportion to its outcome. Even by Sir Geoffrey. While the professional may deal in reverse lap cuts in between proper cricket shots, these are merely those shots that do not yet feature in the manual, but for every effort to execute an elegant cover drive effected by your typical Sunday batsman, five portmanteau shots will be fashioned from the leftovers of other sports they may have played, watched or perhaps simply heard tell. Ive seen forearm smashes, topspin lobs, 9 irons, heaves, hoicks, flails and mows, airy wafts (or elegant leaves), flat-bat smacks, and dozens of others as yet nameless. Just as there are shots not yet in the manual, there are shots that never will be, and it is these shots, these Sunday inventions, these unidentifiable mongrels, these teechniques practised in the Dark Net, that place where intention is never undone by lack of talent, it is these shots that feature in a sort of anti-manual.ddddddddddddIt is in this tome, this as-yet unwritten work of cricket lore (Wisntden, perhaps) carried in the hearts and minds of Sunday cricketers everywhere, that we gain access to the truths of this great game. And the truth is that cricket, real cricket, is not the game played by the professionals but the one played by us lot. In the professional game, orthodoxy is challenged by finely honed athletes seeking that extra fraction of a percentage of performance, as it is in these infinitesimal advantages that games are won and lost. In real cricket, in my cricket, our cricket, orthodoxy is simply challenged.We know what were meant to be doing, and while aiming to hit the top of off stump or bowling down the corridor of uncertainty is the theory, practice tells us that one of the most dangerous deliveries is the full toss. Its not simply the power of the unexpected so much as the raft of opportunities it offers the batsman. Confronted with an embarrassment of sure-fire scoring options the most common reaction is to gently lob it to the nearest fielder for catching practice. Filthy, is the word youll hear: perfect, is the truth.As batsmen, we know we ought to play straight, through the line, foot to the pitch, elbow high, and all that gallimaufry, but more often than not we simply stand and deliver. See ball, hit ball. Or in my case, see ball, leave ball, discover the bowler has one that cuts back sharply.Not a good leave, opined the office manager. Au contraire, it was an excellent leave - confident, considered, comprehensive. If only Id played my natural game, namely no foot movement, play very late, watch bowler begin celebrations, before, out of nowhere, jamming my bat down to meet the ball in desperation, then I would have lived to face the next ball. But no, I played properly. Textbook, one might say. Unfortunately the bowler had been reading the same textbook, and he was a few pages ahead of me. If only Id trusted the occult knowledge of the Dark Net.
