Dan Mullen's recruiting philosophy has been talked about quite a bit in the last month.
The Mississippi State head coach has taken a Bulldog team from unranked to the top team in the country. Mullen and his coaching staff didn't do that with a surplus of 5- and 4-star recruits, rather with 2- and 3-star recruits they developed.
Depth is something you need to compete in the Southeastern Conference, but it can also bring about strife between teammates.
That's not the case for the Mississippi State linebackers.
The Bulldogs have one of the deepest linebacker groups in the SEC, and competition is fierce on the field, but they get along off the field.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs have enjoyed quite a nice first half of the season with two bye weeks included.
Starting with this Saturday's game at Kentucky, it will be a six-week grind for the Bulldogs with no more open dates in the mix.
It was a special night for Starkville High School volleyball coach Lauren Love Tuesday night.
In her previous five seasons of leading the Lady Yellowjackets, Love had never experienced a postseason victory.
Starkville returned to the Class III playoffs this season and Love picked up that win in her sixth season as the Lady Jackets swept the Clinton Lady Arrows at home 3-0.
Three games were played on Tuesday afternoon into the evening, but they weren't just an ordinary set.
Winning that trio meant a spot in the Class 2A State championship series, which the East Webster Wolverines slow pitch squad was about to do by the end of the day.
From the opening tip controlled by Heather Koehn to a fast breaking Mia Wells, Starkville Christian School Lady Cougars set out on a mission against the Lady Rebels of North Sunflower Academy.
Playing in the WinonaÂ Christian Invitational, the Lady Cougars played an exciting defense which led to steals and in turnÂ points and ended up winning a 50-19 decision.
Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen didn't want to be the one to get his players in the right mindset for Monday's practice.
The Bulldogs are coming off a bye and three-straight wins over top 10 teams that pole-vaulted them to No. 1 in both major polls.
MSU returned to practice Monday in advance of this Saturday's game in Lexington, Kent., against the Kentucky Wildcats.
All season long, Lauren Loveâ€™s Starkville Lady Yellowjackets have been playing with one thing in the back of its mind.
That idea comes front and center today as SHS welcomes the Clinton Arrows for the first round of Class III playoff action.
The Starkville High School Yellowjacket and Lady Jacket teams performed well in the Class 6A North State championship held over the weekend in Flowood.
The Jackets placed second behind Tupelo, in a tie with Clinton and Oxford, even after much adversity. The Lady Jackets placed third behind Madison Central (first) and Tupelo (second). Â Â
Tiffany Huddleston is considered "a great teammate" by Mississippi State soccer coach Aaron Gordon and teammates.
It's her willingness to do anything it takes to help the Bulldogs that causes the people around to stand up and take notice.
With MSU limited due to injury, Huddleston, a former Starkville Academy athlete, played 38 minutes on Sunday against Texas A&M.
