Mississippi State's Gavin Ware knew he was going to have to change several things when he came to college.
The former Starkville High School standout's first priority was to get in shape and stay in shape to play in the Southeastern Conference.Â
Ware has worked on his weight in his two seasons with the Bulldogs, but this summer MSU head coach Rick Ray has seen a brand new Ware.
Mississippi State has almost finalized its non-conference basketball schedule for the 2014-15 season.Â
Head coach Rick Ray indicated that the Bulldogs are waiting on one more contract, a "high-major contract."Â
There wasn't much reason for Mississippi State to pay very much attention to Thursday night's National Basketball Association Draft.
Coach Rick Ray hopes that's something that will change in the next two years.
A new champion stands at the top in the 12-year old United States Specialty Sports Association baseball bracket in the state and that team knows a thing or two about this area as six of the kids hail from Starkville while four call the East Webster area home.
Not many people get to be part of a professional athleteâ€™s circle of trust.
With Starkvilleâ€™s Travis Outlaw, the list includes mostly relatives along with a few valued friends that the NBA star might as well be â€śfamily.â€ť
There was one primary reason why Starkville High School quarterback Brady Davis chose June 24 to make his college destination known to the public.
Davis didn't want the recruiting process to be a distraction while he was leading the Yellowjackets to the best possible season they can have this fall.
Mississippi State head baseball coach John Cohen values the relationship he has with the high school and junior college coaches in Mississippi.
When it comes to the Bulldogs or any of the other colleges in the state having success, Cohen knows the high school and junior colleges have to be a big part of that.
He respects the job high school coaches do to keep their programs going.
A Mississippi State spokesperson confirmed Wednesday that tight end Artimas Samuel is no longer on the football team.
The news was first reported by Bulldawgs 247.Â
Samuel would have been entering his sophomore season with the Bulldogs this fall. He went through spring drills, but decided to leave the team this summer. No reason was given for his departure.Â
Fans of the Southeastern Conference have always been passionate about their teams and the league their teams play in.
That passion caught Dish Network's eye and the television provider decided to jump on the bandwagon that is the SEC.
It was announced in early March that Dish was going to be the first television provider to carry the SEC Network nationwide when it launches on August 14.Â
Drive by the Starkville Sportsplex and it is not hard to miss Travis Outlawâ€™s name on the side of the building, but for the former Yellowjacket and current National Basketball Association athlete, it is more about what takes place inside the building than what it is on the outside.
