On the Links, Etc.


Good Monday to you, friends. For those of you who made the trek to Knoxville, I hope you took the scenic route back home like I did. Could’ve taken your mind off things.

Here is today’s MSU rewind.

In other news, the SEC just released its players of the week:

• Offense: RB Knowshon Moreno, Georgia

• Defense: S Eric Berry, Tennessee

• Special teams: P Brett Upson, Vanderbilt

• Offensive line: G Mike Johnson, Alabama

• Defensive line: DE Tyson Jackson, LSU

• Freshman: WR/QB/PR Randall Cobb, Kentucky

Now, for a quick primer on this week’s opponent, Middle Tennessee State, of the Sun Belt Conference. It’s homecoming for Mississippi State, and kickoff is set for 6 p.m. ESPNU will televise. Now, some MTSU factoids:

Location: Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Coach: Rick Stockstill (third year)

2008 record: 2-5

I’ll check back soon after I listen in on MSU coach Sylvester Croom (10 a.m.) and then MTSU’s Stockstill (about 11 a.m.). Also on tap today is a 2 p.m. basketball press conference with coach Rick Stansbury and selected players.
