Mississippi State begins Spring Practice for football on March 22nd, but with two new institutions joining the league (Missouri and Texas aTm) It's not to early to take a sneak peek at the new 2012 schedule.

With 16 returning starters the Bulldogs look at this schedule and go huh?  In recent years its
open with a non conference opponent then go right at Auburn and LSU back to back. 

With the addition of two new conference teams, the league had to do some flipping of games to make the schedules work for all fourteen institutions and in doing so, the Bulldogs have a front half of a schedule like
none they have seen in recent years.

The Dawgs open up with In-State foe Jackson State then host Auburn. After that its at Troy, home against
 South Alabama, at Kentucky, home against Tennessee, and Middle Tennessee. 

Now its way to early for predictions but considering I am a predicting machine and professor.  If this team does what I think it can do, it very well could be looking at starting the season at 6-1 or 7-0 but we will address predictions in the summer. 

Of course the back half is brutal which makes it fun or one go eeek; depending on who you are. 

 The Dawgs travel to Alabama, entertain Texas  aTm, go to LSU, Arkansas at home and finish the year at that school in north Mississippi. 

Regardless, this maroon team should find itself bowling once again.
