Rushing stats for TSUN and MSU 

I was on twitter and I was minding my own business, and reading all the tweets that stingray has. Then something caught my eye. A retweet. A rebel fan said that his team runs the ball more and better than Mississippi State which I found absolutely absurd. So I can sit around and tell you all day about how dem bulldawgs are better than dem Rebs. Buuuttt that wouldn’t work. However, stats do.  So I had to scroll down to see dem rebels. Mississippi State has run the ball 532 times for 2,997 yards. Dem rebs have ran 422 times for 1,793 yards. Dem bulldawgs got more yards and attempts. End of discussion riggghhtt?? Weeellll apparently not for all of you footbawl nerds I’ll do advanced stats too. Also I would never guess that we have better rushing stats than LSU. well. Ish.  Dem Rebs get 149 yards a game rushing. That’s awful. So we know the majority of their yards and plays run are passes. Dem bulldawgs get 230 yards a game. That’s a lot better. And get about 5.6 yards per carry. That’s good. Dem Rebs get about 4.3 yards per carry. That’s not very good. I am a strong believer in running the football and I think that if you run the ball you will be rewarded with wins. Dan has always had solid run games (with the exception of 2015 that was pretty much the Dak show) but Dan should have a settled backfield and that means we can run the ball more. Which means that we’ll win. So. Rushing. Bulldawgs>Rebs
