    Perhaps the worst kept secret in Mississippi.

    Lane Burroughs.

  2. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Yeah, Shmuley, that leaked instantly.

  3. jcdawgman18 Says:

    Gregg, any indication on how quickly the pitching coach could be announced?

  4. dadwithpride Says:

    I read something about Jay Powell, or the MCC Coach, Rose> whats the word up there?

  5. jcdawgman18 Says:

    I have heard Powell, Rose, and Vandy’s pitching coach, Johnson. No one really seems to know exactly which one it will be, but it should happen real soon.

  6. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Powell has expressed that he’s not interested. He’s got too much going on in the Jackson area.

  7. jcdawgman18 Says:

    Well, I guess that narrows it down to can we get the Vandy guy or not.

    GG, I have a couple of baseball questions as I am sure others do. May be a good time for blog bag, the baseball edition.

    I”ll post mine here.
    1. Now that we have hired Cohen what roster changes will we see, if any? Will he have to run some players off due to the scholarship cuts? How and when will this be done without evaluations?

    2. Will we see any new recruits come in for this year? This includes maybe some Polk didnt recruit that Cohen will (pitcher from East Central High who’s name escapes me someone help) or maybe some that Cohen recruited for UK. Rumor has it that the Webb kid from Paducah is gonna play for Cohen at State or sign a pro contract. Can he get out of his scholly from UK?

    3. Will Brandon Turner stay and will he be healthy enough to return to his freshman year form?

    4. Will Rashun Dixon go pro(not likely I hear), and will he be allowed to play baseball and football at State?
