Time to shift gears


With basketball over, it’s time to center the attention on football and baseball.

As far as spring football is concerned, Mississippi State practices today and Thursday and then concludes drills on Saturday with the annual spring game.

I’ll be in Starkville this afternoon and will provide an update later tonight.

Baseball wise, the Bulldogs host South Alabama today and tomorrow, then welcome Georgia to Dudy Noble Field as part of Super Bulldog Weekend festivities. I have not yet seen MSU play, so I can’t offer any analogy as to what the heck is going on. All I know is 9-12 isn’t very good, nor is 1-5.

Little reading for you today. I have a column that says good-bye to Charles Rhodes, while talking a quick look at next year.

    gregg, has CC seen any improvement in the center-QB exchange? I know he was really ticked off earlier in the spring.

  3. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Actually , he has. Of course, it couldn’t have gotten any worse.

    Baseball lost again. That’s 4 in a row. Good job guys!!!

  5. 2thdoc Says:

    Gregg, Sounds like Tyson Lee’s passing accuracy in scrimmage is raising eyebrows in Vegas

  6. jaybirdms Says:

    Time for a “Major League” turnaround.

    They playing again tonight?

  7. Gregg Ellis Says:

    He is 2thdoc. But again, he is limited by his 5-11 height. And yes, jaybirds, USA and MSU play again tonight.

    Also, I’m about to make a new post, but as for me, I’m done for the day. It’s been a long, long, long time since I’ve completely gotten away from work, and today, and I post that is, is going to be that day.

    You all have fun.
