Several Mississippi State fans are anxious to see how their Bulldogs will fare Saturday morning when the Texas A&M Aggies come to town.
The No. 17 (Associated Press) Bulldogs (7-1, 3-1) don't have much time to think about last week's loss to No. 1 Alabama. The No. 16 (Associated Press) Aggies are knocking on the door.
It will be an unfortunate situation if athletics gets taken away, or even partly taken, from the Oktibbeha County schools.
As of right now, its appears the schools still can compete, but only in Class A, Region 3, District 4 games only. That means there can be no participation in the playoffs, no matter what the record shows.

Another year, another Halloween night.
It's time again for the goblins, superheroes, princesses and a myriad of other costumed children to walk the streets of Starkville looking to fill their pumpkin pales with Halloween treats.

Iâ€™ve never been in a church where Iâ€™ve known so many people. Seriously, it was over half the congregation.Â It was like a College of Arts and Sciences faculty meeting but with more amens and less action items.Â The only real task at hand this first blustery, autumn day of the season was a wedding.
