Fitzhugh in East-West Game

January 13, 2009

Strong safety Keith Fitzhugh, who recently wrapped up his senior year at Mississippi State, has been selected to play in the 84th annual East-West Shrine Game, which is set for 3 p.m. Saturday in Houston. It’ll be on ESPN2.

Fitzhugh is the second Bulldog chosen to a postseason all-star game; free safety/kick returner Derek Pegues will play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 24 (6 p.m., NFL Network).

Fitzhugh had a full career at State, playing in 48 games. He recorded 180 tackles, six interceptions and three fumble recoveries. And on a personal note, I thoroughly enjoyed watching him play; such an intense competitor. A joy to interview, as well.

Sorry I’m late with this, but Monday was rather busy. So I now open the Blog Bag for you to drop in your questions. I’ll do my best to answer them.

Today’s Opinion Offering, Etc.

January 13, 2009

Running late today. So what else is new? Well, I have a new column in today’s Daily Journal, about the MSU basketball team. The Bulldogs (11-5, 1-0 SEC) host Alabama (11-4, 1-0) on Wednesday.

In lieu of a game advance, I will take a closer look at MSU freshman point guard Dee Bost, who hasn’t always been a point guard. Look for it in tomorrow’s paper.

That’s all I’ve got for now.
