Allah Ack-Bama. It’s that time of year again


Wins against the Crimson Tide are rare for my Bulldogs. Heck, they’re rare for any ball club.

On November 1, 1980, the largest crowd in Mississippi history witnessed the Bullies defeating the top-ranked Tide 6-3 at Memorial Stadium in Jackson. Over the years, the size of that crowd has grown by thousands of fans who will tell you, “I was there when we beat the Bear.”

Two teams that ran the triple-option offense and played stout defense played their hearts out that day. It featured the inventor of the Wishbone, Emory Bellard, and the legendary Bear Byant. The keys to the Bulldog win were winning the turnover battle, and playing a more physical game than Alabama.

If my Bullies have a chance in the upcoming game, these will again be the keys to victory.

In the words of Emory Bellard, “Ohhhhh, was it good!”

The video from November 2, 1980 is a classic. It even has famous Coke commercial featuring Mean Joe Green.

Enjoy!

“Mississippi State broadcast legend Jack Cristil hosts his weekly show with Mississippi State head coach Emory Bellard. This show would be a little different as Mississippi State had just knocked off two time defending national champion and #1 ranked Alabama 6-3 in Jackson.”

  1. I wasn’t there, but I certainly remember.
    Wish we could have Ol’Herschel go against Bama that year,

  2. If the BullDogs could rise up again and beat Bama it would be a victory covered with awesome sauce.

    • The Dogs have the talent to beat Bama. But, they don’t know yet how to win. We were undefeated going into the Bama game last year, and were beaten soundly. The team hasn’t recovered since that game. Awesome sauce with meatballs!!

  3. One of our local boys is playin’ for the Tide, so reckon I’ll be cheerin’ him on.

  4. The play of the day is brought to you courtesy of Oklahoma State Trooper Brian Orr, who is coach Bob Stoops personal body guard.
    Some silly person decided to run onto the field at today’s game. Fortunately, the fan kept his clothes on.
