There have been jokes flying around about De'Runnya Wilson just showing up and playing any sportÂ on the campus of Mississippi State.

Certain things are going to be said in the heat of battle.
They just are.
During sporting events, coaches shout things at players, teammates shout things at each other, coaches shout things at officials and sometimes officials shout back. Things can get out of hand in a competitive situation.
WEST POINT â€“ Starkville head coach Greg Carter wasn't happy with the way his squad played in the first half.
He let them know.
"They knew we didn't play very well in the first half," Carter said. "We didn't defend like we normally do and we didn't execute offensively like we normally do. We missed layups and got into foul trouble. The first half isn't how we play."
MATHISTON â€“ The East Webster Lady Wolverines brought the heat to Wood Junior College on a cold Tuesday evening with a 66-39 victory over visiting Eupora.
For Todd Hutchinson, coach of the Lady Wolverines, the win is a result of his teamâ€™s ability to apply pressure when needed and to produce defensively.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Golden Triangle believe it has hit one out of the park with this year's speaker for its Sports Talk Charity Fundraiser.

Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray will not be disciplined by the Southeastern Conference for his actions towards Ole Missâ€™ Marshall Henderson, the league announced Monday.
Ray spoke with SEC commissioner Mike Slive on Monday about the manner. Slive was pleased with the way Ray handled the matter, as he apologized Sunday via social media.
Mississippi State women's basketball coach Vic Schaefer liked what he saw on Sunday from his guard position.
It was mainly due to the toughness that led to the Bulldogs taking seven charges during a 69-62 victory over the Missouri Tigers.
That's the type of defensive play that Schaefer has been wanting to be more of a consistent pattern for MSU moving forward.
Size and speed were the story on Monday as Madison Ridgeland Academy picked up a 2-0 victory over Starkville Academy.
â€śThey were really moving the ball well,â€ť Volunteers coach Cole Andrews said. â€śWe were doing well to keep the attack away from our net, but the two times they did put them in, we were too loose and allowed just enough time for them to settle the ball and take a shot.â€ť
The Mississippi State Bulldogs didn't lose focus when things did not go their way during a key moment of Sunday's game against the Missouri Tigers.
MSU's Breanna Richardson had just been hit with a technical foul for bouncing the basketball hard off the floor and Missouri's Morgan Eye stepped up to the line to make two free throws that tied the game at 44-44.
