Let’s tip it


OK. Now that the Miami-Texas game is over, it’s time to move onto Mississippi State and Memphis.

And for your fun tidbit of the day, I’m told by a high-ranking SEC official that CBS plans to air the game to just six percent of the country. Yep. Six percent.

Of course, that could all change if the game is close and another is a blowout.

As for other news, there are no injuries to report, and the starting lineup remains the same.

Mississippi State (23-10)
G – Ben Hansbrough
G – Barry Stewart
G – Jamont Gordon
F – Charles Rhodes
F – Jarvis Varnado
Top reserves: F Brian Johnson, G Ravern Johnson, F Elgin Bailey

Memphis (34-1)
F –
Robert Dozier
F – Joey Dorsey
G – Chris Douglas-Roberts
G – Antonio Anderson
G – Derrick Rose
Top reserves: G Willie Kemp, G Andre Allen, G Donreal Mack

    Your internet picture is better than channel 13 on my HD bigscreen here in Tupelo I bet. Channel 13 looks awful here in my neighborhood for some reason.

  5. Gregg Ellis Says:

    I like your thinking.

  6. cnd46 Says:

  7. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Man, I hate these timeouts.

  8. Gregg Ellis Says:

    My bracket was shot on Day 1.

  9. judwe Says:

    given’em the ol’ Deer in the headlights look

  10. cnd46 Says:

    How about Davidson, what a well coach and hard fighting team

  11. 2thdoc Says:

    Is that 2 blocks for Varnado?

  12. farley662 Says:

    Barry Stewart with a dumb foul. Hmmmmmmmm

  13. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Boy these two teams are bringin’ it today. Fun to watch.

  14. dadawg Says:

    Varnado is swatting ’em!

  15. thespear Says:

    good start for Varnado! We have to rule the paint

  16. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Foul em’ out boys!

  17. tupelopixdotcom Says:


  18. warbirdz44 Says:

    Crap, Gordon hit a 3. He’s gonna be shooting them all day now!

  19. tupelopixdotcom Says:


  20. thespear Says:

    The DAWGS are awake!

  21. Gregg Ellis Says:

    First tie.

  22. dadawg Says:

    C’mon DAWGS!!!

  23. bedgood Says:

    Another 3333333333333333!

  24. thespear Says:

    cheap foul!

  25. dadawg Says:

    Cheap call!!

  26. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    I’m liking our early look.

  27. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Strange call on that won. Now, Ben and Barry have two fouls each

  28. 2thdoc Says:

    Get your shoes tied up Ravern and Phil. Somebody’s fouling out of this one.

  29. Gregg Ellis Says:

    One thing MSU has got to do better is rebounding. They are getting killed on the boards, especially on the offensive end.

  30. thespear Says:

    besides a couple sloppy plays, game plan has been established, control paint, knock down open looks, and feed the beast! We have to rebound better tho

  31. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    This looks kinda like a UFC match under the goal.

  32. goldendawg Says:

    Rhodes is getting a lot of attention down low. I think the three’s will be there for us all day.

  33. thespear Says:

    yeah g dawg, and the extra pass to Varnado will be there

  34. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Tigers are out-rebounding MSU 14-6. They have eight offensive boards.

  35. Gregg Ellis Says:

    With that last block, Jarvis Varnado tied Shaquille O’Neal’s SEC mark of 157.

  36. farley662 Says:


  37. thespear Says:

    How many fouls on JV

  38. Gregg Ellis Says:

    The bench has already scored more than it did against Oregon.

  39. Gregg Ellis Says:

    one foul on JV

  40. 2thdoc Says:

    He knocked that last remnants of the star off of rhodes hair with that one.

  41. dadawg Says:

    The only way anybody is going to make a layup is to drop it in from the top of the backboard…

  42. bulldoggirl Says:

    My blood pressure is already sky high. They need to win this thing and let me relax.

  43. bedgood Says:

    Memphis came in adjusted to our shot blocker and we have not adjusted to their shot blocking. Will be a long day if we do not adjust.

  44. judwe Says:

    Give us 4 more for two obvious goal tends

  45. thespear Says:

    Gordon should have took that layup on the left side, comin across the lane gave Dorsey or whoever it was the angle to block it

  46. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Both teams have fie blocks.

  47. thespear Says:

    Gordon said right back at ya

  48. bedgood Says:

    Uh Ohhh!!! 3’s are raining.

  49. bedgood Says:

    Memphis can arc it.

  50. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    boy the subs stunk it up

  51. bedgood Says:

    Memphis is going to switch it into a different gear.

  52. bedgood Says:

    We may need to start fouling right now.

  53. bedgood Says:

    Good foul.

  54. dadawg Says:

    Get them off the floor JG and fire it…

  55. bedgood Says:


  56. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    I didn’t realize just how athletic Memphis was. Wow.

  57. thespear Says:

    Got to get back on D, Memphis so quick with the ball

  58. judwe Says:

    no call at one end… but they got it on the other.

    TERRIBLE !!!

  59. dadawg Says:

    Love tap!!

  60. Gregg Ellis Says:

    You know, if MSU would follow its shots, it might get some offensive rebounds.

  61. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    This one brute of a battle in the paint. And we aren’t rebounding worth a CRAP! I think they’re stronger than us.

  62. thespear Says:

    I just wish we could get the defensive rebounds

  63. dadawg Says:

    C’mon DAWGS

  64. goldendawg Says:

    Alright Rhodes, take out Douglas-Roberts next

  65. dadawg Says:

    Varnado swats another

  66. tupelopixdotcom Says:


  67. judwe Says:

    Jarvis is in the Reocrd Books !

  68. thespear Says:

    Ben showin folks he can flatout play!

  69. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    We’re hustling today. I like it. If we could straighten out the rebounding we’re good.

  70. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Did Jarvis set the NCAA season record today?

  71. judwe Says:

    158 Jarvis Varnado
    157 Shacquille O’Neil
    156 Roy Rogers
    26 Dale Evans

  72. judwe Says:

    No, That’s David Robinson with something like 678 !!! LOL !!!

  73. warbirdz44 Says:

    It’s getting away from us.

  74. dadawg Says:

    Time out!!!

  75. thespear Says:

    Timeout Stans?

  76. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    The rebounding stats please?

  77. dadawg Says:

    Cannot get a rebound!

  78. warbirdz44 Says:

    Oh well, we hung with them for a while.

  79. dadawg Says:

    Are we saving our timeouts for next year?

  80. thespear Says:

    Stans gonna have to figure out how to stop the penetration, its opening up the zone big time! Hope starters are ready to go 20 min after the half

  81. dadawg Says:

    We cannot buy a rebound..

  82. judwe Says:

    We are being outrebounded pretty bad, part of it is due to the zone

    Last stat I saw was 23 – 16 MCC

  83. farley662 Says:

    Do I hear the Memphis folks doing the LSU T-I-G-E-R-S TIGERS cheer? Don’t know why I’d be surprised that a team from Memphis would steal something.

  84. warbirdz44 Says:

    Maybe Rose and CDR will get hurt in the next half. That’s about our only chance.

  85. thespear Says:

    Well farley, they just formed a fan base this year, not like they are loyal life long fans. They just have not had time to come up with their own cheers yet

  86. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    And Dorsey needs to foul out too

  87. imabulldog Says:

    gotta get outta the zone D, they are spreading us out too much, and when they have reserves that can pop 3’s- you gotta go man.

    Keep our heads up- go dawgs!

  88. imabulldog Says:

    they suck!!! I go to school with those fair weather idiots

  89. judwe Says:

    Guys. It ain’t over yet. We had the ol’ tight rim in the first half. We had some good minutes from Ravern. Jarvis is just a man. It will be very nice to have Dee Bost come in at point next year. The motion “O” is just killin’ any chance at maintaining or building on leads.

    Still 20 minutes left… anything can happen… C- Road still has 20 in him.

    Let’s lace’em up and punch’em in the face.
