Good morning from the Rock


Little Rock that is.

I’m still amazed at how Mississippi State played in the second half against Oregon. It was like two different teams. Well, it was two different teams.

But the one constant throughout the entire game was Charles Rhodes. Dang! He came to play and play he did. It was impressive, yet he was so humble afterwards. And let’s be honest, Sir Charles isn’t one to always be humble. And it was a sincere humbleness at that.

Now, it’s top-seeded Memphis. And everyone I talked to, including both Memphis and national writers, says that MSU presents a tough, tough matchup for the Tigers. Should be interesting.

As for today’s agenda, practices and press conferences start at 1. I think MSU goes at 3:30. When done, I’ll check back in and let you know what was said.

Now for some reading . . .
• Charles Rhodes has a monster game.
• State’s starters log the minutes.
• Memphis just wins.

    Gordon may have not had his best game yesterday but check out the way his line reads: 8 pts 11 rebounds 9 assist, nearly a triple double, whether he standing out or not, this guy influences the game for the better. He did turn the ball over six times, but still he is a force to reckon with, even on an off night

    Anyone else just want to slap a hell outta Paulus?

  3. Gregg Ellis Says:

    I”m with ya Farley. Any of those Dukies, in fact.

  4. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    Even at the cost of my bracket being screwed up, I was hoping Belmont put them away. And GG, could you tell Rick that he doesn’t have to wear his Sunday suit every game. Does he know he can wear something else. LOL

    Gregg when you go to the Flying Saucer tonight try the Chimay blue label in the bottle, best beer made. (by Belgian monks no less)

  7. 2thdoc Says:

    chimay(any label)!!! Great beer

  8. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    I’ve drank many a beer but never heard of Chimay.

  9. farley662 Says:

    I’ll stick with XX’s, Miller Lite, and Red Stripe when I’m smoking a fatty, I mean, eating a steak.

  10. 2thdoc Says:

    it comes in a large fat brown glass bottle with a wire twist top and like hailstate said made by belgian monks. Memphis sells it at places but if you ever see it, its a must try if you like dark brew.

  11. farley662 Says:

    Got the crawfish 2th. Sure you can’t make it?

  12. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    If I see it I’ll grab some. Give anythting a shot. Found a 24 oz Red Stripe on the way back from Tunica last weed farley. Even waited til I got home to drink it. I was driving you know.

  13. farley662 Says:

    They got them in draws chicken liver store in Point City. Pick one up after every football game.

  14. 2thdoc Says:

    I’m nuckle deep in diaper poo and fruit loops. Tell Draws to turn on that bathroom fan and gather up the matches. Yall are gonna need it with that crew along with crawfish, bbq, and beer

  15. farley662 Says:

    I’m on the way to Tupelo. Expect some pictures on Monday. You guys have a Happy Easter if I don’t get back on here again today. Going to a third world country where computers and indoor plumbing don’t exist.

  16. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    By the way guys, i’m finally out of the old lady’s doghouse, so i guess my dream of the stripper pole in my rain room will have to be put on hold. And is anybody seeing the the display that WV is having against Duke.

  17. judwe Says:

    The annual event.

    Rooting against Duke.

    Watching them flame out early.


  18. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    Duke losing, and Fargo is on the tube. This is shaping up to be a good afternoon.

  19. thespear Says:

    Bye Bye Duke, My brackt was already shot anyways ahem thanks uconn

  20. judwe Says:

    ahh. What a Beautiful Day.

  21. chrisfromcorinth Says:

    I had WV winning on my bracket. This is going to help my pool since I had Baylor going to the E8, and I lost Drake and UConn in heartbreakers.

  22. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Crap. I leave town and you guys have a crawfish boil.

  23. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    UCLA is strugglin’ with Texas A&M right now as well

  24. Gregg Ellis Says:

    A&M will lose!

  25. 2thdoc Says:

    I just wished that Stanford would have fallen also. I’m sick of all of the PAC 10 hype so I’m pulling against UCLA since my bracket is crap already. And then there were #? left in the mighty PAC 10.

  26. Gregg Ellis Says:

    My bracket is crap too!

  27. farley662 Says:

    You guys missed a helluva time. We had a great time. Got to meet Braves and the little injuns.

  28. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Wow UCLA finished that one with authority, but I really think the refs let K.Love get away with some pretty blatant fouls under the basket.

  29. Gregg Ellis Says:

    A&M choked!

    Farley, what was the beverage of choice?

  30. farley662 Says:

    Miller Lite. Had a bunch of it. Gonna try to get a crawfish boil together. Fun stuff it was. the Cats beat the hell out of the other other team.

  31. Gregg Ellis Says:

    I heard. What was the crowd like?

  32. farley662 Says:

    GG, I want to thank you for all that you do. If it wasn’t for you, I would have never met 2th, draws, or Braves. Thanks a ton for all you do.

  33. farley662 Says:

    Probably 3000-4000 people. No group had as much fun as the 6 of us. Farley’s, Underware Clan, and the Marine family. Had some fun and did the Maroon, white, fight fight fight cheer.

  34. Gregg Ellis Says:

    I love what I do, but I love this blog more than anything. I had a guy came up to me last night, introduced himself and said the blog makes his day. It made my day to hear that! You guys are awesome!

  35. farley662 Says:

    We need to get all the bloggers together at some point real soon.

  36. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Yep.after all the babies are born. When is your due date Farley?

  37. Braves Dawg Says:

    Got the Easter Bunny loot set out yet guys?

  38. imabulldog Says:

    This blog is great GG- seriously

  39. farley662 Says:

    June 20th. I ate the Bunny. I know, I’m a damn pervert!

  40. Braves Dawg Says:

    I ate two Cadbury’s a few minutes ago!

  41. farley662 Says:

    You bastard! Fatty ate all of our Cadbury’s!

  42. Braves Dawg Says:

    Pocahontas bought them for me before she left. She doesn’t like candy too much.

  43. farley662 Says:

    Yeah, but LARGE did let me go to the game. Wuss.

  44. 2thdoc Says:

    The Easter Bunny spilled red wine on the rug. We need to have a talk with him and Santa about keeping that stuff out of the living room.

  45. farley662 Says:

    The 2th fairy scares me. Heard he had a big “drill!”

  46. Braves Dawg Says:

    I don’t care for babysitting detail while everyone else is having a good time.

  47. farley662 Says:

    Could be worse, you could have to babysit drunk draws and Farley like the wives had to tonight.

  48. Braves Dawg Says:

    Thats alcohol abuse Easter Bunny!

  49. Braves Dawg Says:

    See, you have to be right there with Draws. Draws and sober people don’t mix well.

  50. farley662 Says:

    I noticed that. We did have a little more fun than all the sober white chicks the row in front of us.

  51. Braves Dawg Says:

    I pity them!

  52. farley662 Says:

    We were not that bad. Littledraws did get a foam finger. Panties ate about 25 pickles. The fat arse!

  53. Braves Dawg Says:

    That was a theme from last week Farley.

  54. farley662 Says:

    I thought that sounded familiar!

  55. Gregg Ellis Says:

    You guys have definitly had too much fun!

  56. Braves Dawg Says:

    No such thing GG!
