I got JSU (SWAC) in my blood but I gotta say Mississippi State (SEC) is the most consistent and good.

University of South Panola!!!!!!!! I'm saying this and I'm a graduate and former football player of Madison Central High School. South Panola has my respect though. I would put them up against any college team from MS this yr.

Absolutely not. I'm a graduate of South Panola and a huge fan, but South Panola is a high school team. The best high school team in the state, and one of the best in the country, but there is no way they could compete with even a mediocre college team.

College teams have the best players from high school, just like the NFL has the best players from college, and we know college teams can't compete with the NFL.

I agree with jhadorn. Most high school athletes are not anywhere close to being at the same level as Division I college football teams. Look at Tyler Russell for instance - he was the starting QB for Meridian when they won the State championship in 2008, and he got a scholarship with Miss. State. Now, as a freshman, how many snaps did he take this year in a game at MSU? Answer is 0. There are some who start playing as freshmen, like Chad Bumphis from Tupelo, but the majority of high school football players do not sign with Division I teams, much less start in Division I games. I'm sure many of South Panola's players will go on to play college ball, but there is no way a team of 15-18 year olds from South Panola can beat a team of 18-24 (better conditioned) year olds that have been hand picked from all over the US.

As a State fan, I hate to say that I think Ole Miss had the best team this year overall, even though I do think they were overhyped much of the year by the media. The high expectations may be why they didn't do as well this year. I knew that this year would be a rebuilding of sorts at State, and they definitely started to find their groove towards the end of the year. It seems they are comfortable running the spread offense now, and I look forward to seeing how next year's team performs, as it should be very exciting to watch. Watching the Egg Bowl this year made me proud. No matter what any Rebel fan says, nothing can take a victory away. GO STATE!!!

OneJackson, I still dont think you understand football. I'm a SWAC man myself (Alabama A&M). Thats a completely different level of competition.

a 10 win JSU team still wouldnt be better than a 4 or 5 win Miss. St. or Ole Miss team, and would more than likely get blown off the field.

It's two different levels of talent and athleticism.
