Tough talk

Les Miles may have started a trend among SEC coaches - talking tough in the offseason.

On Thursday, Mississippi State head football coach Sylvester Croom was in Jackson talking to an alumni group.

Check this out from the Jackson Clarion-Ledger.

Later, in front of the crowd, he underlined his point: "We go into this season, we fear no one," he said, to cheers.

And, even more:

"Let me ask you this: You're not afraid of LSU, are you?," he asked.

They cheered back loudly that they weren't.

"Well, I sure as heck (am not)," he said.

Now, mind you, LSU has beaten State by 30 or more points in each of the LAST FOUR SEASONS.

Don't get me wrong. Croom has to say that he doesn't fear any team. I just don't know about calling out a team that figures to be in the top five in the country in the preseason.
