Live from courtside . . .


It’s time for some basketball.

Earlier today, Tennessee and Arkansas won. Now, it’s time to see if Mississippi State can beat Alabama for a third-straight time this year.

And as I type, the Bulldogs enter the floor of the Georgia Dome to a thunderous roar for the MSU fans. Lots of Maroon and White. Lots.

I’m impressed. And it’s a vocal crowd, too. Three to one in favor of Mississippi State.

  4. bdog13 Says:

    wow it sounds like a home game on tv

  5. ericintupelo Says:

    jarvis doesn’t lose tips

  6. mmsdawg Says:

    That is how to start

  7. msu4me Says:

    i hope we do this all night long

  8. mmsdawg Says:

    he just ask them if they were going to play!!!!!

  9. ericintupelo Says:

    that a way baby!!!!

  10. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Two dunks to start. I say that’s good.

  11. mmsdawg Says:

    4 layups

  12. Gregg Ellis Says:

    All 8 of State’s points have come inside.

  13. msu4me Says:

    how bout a 20=nothing start…anyone

  14. mmsdawg Says:

    WOW…2 free throws…this is kinda scary

  15. bdog13 Says:

    Oh my, Swat with two free throws

  16. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Hey, bama scores on a Richard Hendrix free throw.

  17. ericintupelo Says:

    foul number one

  18. farley662 Says:

    Wow, Barry with a TO. Never would have thought that.

  19. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Farley, just think . . . A year ago you couldn’t even stand basketball. You’ve come a long way.

  20. farley662 Says:

    Yup. Hours of studying GG. I sound like I know what I’m talking about. BS scares the mess outta me every time he has the ball.

  21. warbirdz44 Says:

    Not a bad start at all. I don’t like that we left dude wide open for that last three but if we can keep up this level of play, this might turn out alot like the Bama-UF game last night!

  22. ericintupelo Says:

    I think we should work it inside out with charles and ben. Ben is lethal when he’s on

  23. farley662 Says:

    Oh hell. Jamont sees someone else making shots. time for his inner Kobe t come out!

  24. bdog13 Says:

    Thank God they didnt call that an offensive foul, it seems like once we get one we just keep getting them

  25. farley662 Says:


  26. Gregg Ellis Says:

    LOL, farley.

  27. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Wow. Phil Turner is in. It’s been awhile.

  28. bdog13 Says:

    wow this is a lot of substituting for us, if we can keep fresh legs out there and continue to dominate it will help us in the long run of the tournament.

  29. farley662 Says:

    What’s up with the one Bummer with half a pair of tights on?

  30. mmsdawg Says:

    do not let him get hot

  31. bdog13 Says:

    here we go again

  32. farley662 Says:

    Not the right time for the 5 minute draught guys. That’s at about 12 minutes left in the second half.

  33. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Jamont just got faked out of his shoes, then turns the basketball over.

    Farley, I’m not sure what that is.

    A lot of substituting. Not sure what’s up with that.

  34. ericintupelo Says:

    freshman mistake. lazy pass! This is tournament time, and no time for dumb mistakes

  35. farley662 Says:

    I like the look. Gonna sport it to the Grill.

  36. warbirdz44 Says:

    This is what happens when we have 4 scrubs on the floor. I expect the starters back on the floor after this timeout.

  37. bdog13 Says:

    I sure hope we can make this a low scoring game and not run ourselves to death.

  38. Gregg Ellis Says:

    What are the TV announcers saying?

  39. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Bama now on a 13-7 run.

  40. farley662 Says:

    “I wish that one big headed bastard with the shaved head and sweater vest would move so I could see!”

  41. Gregg Ellis Says:

    LOL. No sweater vest to day.

    Not getting much production from that bench.

  42. ericintupelo Says:

    I seriously hate this lineup

  43. warbirdz44 Says:

    We actually put a worse team on the floor. Kept the scrubs in and put in Stewart for Gordon.

  44. mmsdawg Says:

    ok…time for the starters to come back

  45. farley662 Says:

    Sounds like Stans is pulling an OM. Start hot and put in the scrubs to let us get behind.

  46. warbirdz44 Says:

    Finally, the starters are back in.

  47. farley662 Says:

    Whats with the sleeve with Benny?

  48. ericintupelo Says:

    great ball movement

  49. Gregg Ellis Says:

    He and Stewart have been wearing the sleeve for a while. Today, though, Barry doesn’t have his on.

  50. bdog13 Says:

    He got a sleeve tat of a naked woman and they wont allow him to show it, haha. No really I have been wondering the same thing.

  51. mmsdawg Says:

    did not look like he had possesion to me

  52. bdog13 Says:

    Seriously that is getting old. We haev got to stop swapping threes and dunks. Do not let them have open shots

  53. mmsdawg Says:

    ok..why does everyone have great 3 point games against us???

  54. farley662 Says:

    Throw a banana peel at Barry’s feet. I’m not a fan of BS!

  55. ericintupelo Says:

    got to stop the three!!!

  56. warbirdz44 Says:

    Why do we continue to run the zone when we are getting raped from 3?

  57. bdog13 Says:

    That is a great sound on the tv. maroon…. white….

  58. mmsdawg Says:

    this is getting OLD…get out of the zone

  59. farley662 Says:

    I was about to explode!

  60. warbirdz44 Says:


  61. farley662 Says:

    So the bald ref is the Bama ref tonight.

  62. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Bama is 6 of 11 from 3-point range. State is getting most of its points inside. Charles Rhodes has 13, while Jarvis Varnado has 8.

  63. farley662 Says:

    Hmmmmmmmmm, warbirdz, that sounds vaugely familiar! LOL!

  64. dc31 Says:

    That bald head guy is the same ref from the Tennessee game

  65. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    18 points off the tre already yikes

  66. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Refs don’t do two games in a a single day.

  67. farley662 Says:

    He’s jealous GG has his haircut.

  68. farley662 Says:

    Ok, I’m gonna beat the hell outta Barry Stewart!

  69. Gregg Ellis Says:

    We have our first tie. State led the entire way until Justin Knox hit a bank shot to tie it at 27-all.

  70. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    10% from beyond the arc for state 1/10

  71. mmsdawg Says:

    ok…Ben is not on…I hope it gets better

  72. Gregg Ellis Says:

    With 3:40 to play, MSU is just 1 of 10 from 3-point range.

  73. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    me and farley could hit at least 2 of 10

  74. warbirdz44 Says:

    Well it’s hard to win when you are 1-10 from three and the 1 came from Charles Rhodes.

  75. farley662 Says:

    OK, I just got kicked off the computer. The wife is bored. Will check in at halftime.

  76. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Did someone forget to tell Hansbrough and Stewart we were playing tonight?

  77. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Good point, birdz.

    Well, now Bama leads for the first time. And of course, it came on a 3-pointer.

  78. mmsdawg Says:

    sh%$….guard them

  79. ericintupelo Says:

    Ben is hustling just the shots ain’t falling

  80. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    The three’s are getting outta hand

  81. warbirdz44 Says:

    This is flat out ridiculous.

  82. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Some BS. There was no foul under our goal there??!!

  83. Gregg Ellis Says:

    MSU is getting beat to a lot of loose balls on the floor.

  84. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Bama is on a 12-0 run.

  85. dc31 Says:

    Same ref from the Tennessee at MSU game

  86. mmsdawg Says:

    ok…we need a basket

  87. mmsdawg Says:


  88. ericintupelo Says:

    This is pathetic. Jump out 10-0 and Alabama has just put the foot on the gas and we haven’t. Half court offense is strugglin

  89. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Gotcha, dc31.

    Hey, Alabama just missed a 3.

  90. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    We need more than a timeout right now…

  91. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Sports fans, the Bulldogs are in a bad funk.

  92. dadawg Says:

    Jamont is asleep

  93. ericintupelo Says:

    Got to swing the ball on the outside and not force the ball inside. Feed it in but don’t force it

  94. mmsdawg Says:

    that was pathetic!!! come on dogs

  95. warbirdz44 Says:

    I hope Stansbury kicks every player on the team in the nuts during halftime.

  96. ericintupelo Says:

    I just hope last night will set in and state can wear them down in the second half because they don’t look like they’re tired. We look like we played an overtime game last night

  97. dadawg Says:

    These 3’s cannot continue and our missing streak cannot continue…

  98. Gregg Ellis Says:

    The Bulldogs haven’t had a field goal since the 6:56 mark on an inside shot by Rhodes. Total, they have just one point since then. Not good.

  99. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    We’re gonna have a better 2nd half. I feel it.

  100. dadawg Says:

    Good play BS

  101. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Smart play, and a heck of a play, by Barry Stewart. Show him some love, Farley.

  102. dadawg Says:

    Barry’s confidence is gone, what the heck?

  103. warbirdz44 Says:

    Barry Stewart is garbage. He has sucked from the line and sucked from three this season. I am really missing the Delk twins right about now.

  104. dadawg Says:

    That last free throw by BS barely made it to the rim?

  105. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Not a good half for the Bulldogs. Bama is up 36-29. You would think it was MSU that played on Thursday rather than Alabama.

  106. Gregg Ellis Says:

    OK. Going to get some Dr. Pepper. See you in the second half. Do you all want a new blog or continue with this one.

  107. thespear Says:

    Great Start, but it turned ugly!

    Stans has to figure out how to slow down their perimeter play…
    Nice steal by stewart, glad to see him at least hustle

  108. farley662 Says:

    I want BS gone!

  109. warbirdz44 Says:

    I want a Dr. Pepper. 😀

  110. warbirdz44 Says:

    I want that too farley!

  111. farley662 Says:

    I’m going to get some Miller Lite and some steaks!

  112. msu4me Says:

    I’m beginning think our guys like the challenge of coming from behind. I have enough drama in my life…..beat these clowns.

  113. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    I already ate my steak. Only one part of todays holiday left 🙂

  114. dc31 Says:

    I don’t understand how our perimeter D just stinks at times
    BARRY! WAKE UP! We need you this weekend and we’ll definitely need you next weekend

  115. ericintupelo Says:

    maybe we should start a new blog for good luck or something. At this point I’m desperate for anthing to help

  116. Gregg Ellis Says:

    New blog it is, then.
