Face of MSU athletics


On Friday, former Mississippi State baseball great Will Clark will be inducted into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.

To be honest, I thought he was already in.

So when coming to the realization that he indeed was not, I got to thinking (dangerous, I know). Is he the face of MSU athletics?

What is your take? If not Clark, then who?

    He’s already in the college baseball hall of fame. And I would have to say yes.

    I think the all time face would be Bailey Howell. He’s the greatest state basketball player ever and still has season tickets to football, baseball and basketball. He even drums up business, calling for donations. The current face however is Croom. People unfamiliar with the University know who Croom is and where he coaches more than they know where Clark went to school.

    I was just thinking baseball…..Our most historic sport. Our fan support for basketball and football ain’t all that great.

    In all seriousness, I’d have to say the face of MSU athletics is Bully.

    Ron Polk? Just kidding!

    My vote’s for Bailey Howell. Class act all the way.

    Am I right to assume you’re not going GG?

    Not going where, Draws?

  9. bigdraws Says:

    The MS hall of fame ceremony.

  10. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Nah. Too much going on with the start of football. AP will do just nicely.

  11. bigdraws Says:

    I would actually like to go see that sometime. Heard it’s done first class and you can interact with the sports figures.

  12. Gregg Ellis Says:

    It is. They do a great, great job. It’s not cheap to get in though. Around $100, I think.

  13. bigdraws Says:

    In that case, I’ll read about it.

    Yall betta get fo’ real!

    -face of tha program,

    Kevin Fant baby!!!

    Not really, I’d have to say Croom is the face of our Athletics. Football is king, even if the sport isn’t the best your school has had to offer over the years- fball coaches are the face of their school. Period.
