    JB, I guess you had to get in one last jab before calling it a night at 5PM.

    Hope you don’t mind, GG. Here’s a good article looking at Anthony Dixon.

    2doc, hope you and family are enjoying your hard earned vacation.
    Don’t see it as a jab since I once was a cotton farmer. Never in my greatest imagination would I have ever expected to make a salary as Mr. Croom. But, he really deserves it. Probably, he has seen his last win over the Rebs.

    We had cows out on the farm. Thankful for them, except one. The one that delivered a bull that I started and ended my bull riding career on.

    Well doc, nice chatting with you; it is getting close to 5pm and must say goo nite. The best, JB

    JB says “Probably, he has seen his last win over the Rebs.”

    Have a good weekend JB.

    JB, has Croom retired or something? LOL!

    New baseball hire, boys. Refresh your blog.

  8. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Birdz, I have no problem with that article.

  9. Jimmy Barbee Says:

    Gregg, in all seriousness and really don’t like to say this, the dawgs had a great defense this past season. The offense let them down. Yes, it time for Coach Croom to retire any thoughts of beating the Rebs in the near future. Hopeful thinking!!
    Now up to the new baseball hire.

    Give it up JB.

    Kind of funny MSU is starting to just try to match what Ole Miss puts on the table these days. I bet it won’t be another year before they get a new jumbotron and another five years before they get a basketball indoor practice facility.

  12. bigdraws Says:

    tcfan. I don’t know if that was sarcasm or not. But it’s a well known fact that they are already in the works.

  13. thingreenline Says:

    “……puts on the table these days.”? Where is UM’s indoor basketball facility? Oh yeah, they don’t have one yet.

  14. bigdraws Says:

    Yeah, kinda like they tried to copy tailgating in the outfield at baseball games.

  15. 2thdoc Says:

    I hope we don’t try to match that winless SEC record put on the table last year.

  16. Jimmy Barbee Says:

    2doc, who rebs and dawgs? I think that we will see improvement in both teams next season. There’s no doubt about State, the only way for them is up.I think they will do that. Rebs will have a senior loaded talented team. Next season team should be better for them than past.

  17. 2thdoc Says:

    JB, I was just harping on what tcfan said about State trying to match what UM puts on the table
