As I watched the game I said, “Great Caesar’s ghost,
The Tigers football program is toast.”
The offense spent it’s time sputtering and stewing.
I’m not really sure they knew what they were doing.
The defense was worse because, all the while,
The Bulldogs gained about a third of a mile.
Mississippi State, simply put, just had their way
And I’m glad I wasn’t doin’ the play-by-play.
There is an answer out there somewhere, golly gee.
But for heavens sake don’t look at me .
R.C. and the coach are of one accord.
It’s back to that well known drawing board.
There have been a lot of foul ups along the way
So here and now let me say,
Disaster is imminent it’s looming large
So why not try someone else in charge.
If that doesn’t work-from where I sit
The only thing left to do is quit.
