Christmas leftovers, stocking style

January 18, 2012

The trees are boxed up, re-planted or chopped into firewood. The Santas have been deflated and the light shows turned off – most of them at least. But Christmas lingers on for me via the scales and in

Rivals meet in Oxford

January 18, 2012

The 18th-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs travel north to take on Ole Miss tonight in the longest running rivalry in school history.

The two teams have squared off 243 times with the State coming out on top a school-best 138 times, and for the Bulldogs, a win in the 244th meeting means they’ve tied a 96-year-old record. 

The Bulldogs (15-3, 2-1) haven’t won four-straight in Oxford since the 1914-16 seasons and while that is significant to the team, MSU senior point guard Dee Bost understands this is the one the fans really want. 

“You can lose three games in a row but if you lose to Ole Miss, that game probably means more to our fans and our school,” said Bost, who stands second in scoring with 16.1 points per outing. “Playing Ole Miss, you always have to come to play because everybody is watching.”

MSU's Hood excited about Ole Miss game

January 18, 2012

In the state of Mississippi, it is a pretty much understood thing that Bulldogs don’t like Rebels and Rebels don’t care for Bulldogs.
That’s just the way it is.

For Mississippi State's Rodney Hood, a Meridian native, he gets the rivalry loud and clear. 

“I know people don't like Ole Miss. I don't have anything against them but I know State fans really want this,” said Hood who is the third-leading scorer for the Bulldogs with 11.6 points per game. “I know we don't like them and they don't like us. I'm excited for the game.”

Hood will get his first taste of MSU’s oldest rivalry tonight as the 15-3 Bulldogs travel to Oxford to take on the 11-6 Rebels and in doing so he’ll face one of his more difficult matchups of the season in forward, Terrance Henry.

State men, women see a big week

January 18, 2012

This is a big week of basketball on the road for the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs.

Any stretch of games in the Southeastern Conference is deemed important for positioning in the standings, but there's one particular reason to place emphasis on the matchups of this midweek.

It's rivalry week.

Forget for a moment that the Bulldogs have a battle against a tough Vanderbilt team Saturday in Nashville, Tenn., or that the Lady Bulldogs are in need of an SEC home victory against Auburn on Sunday.

Starkville's Pugh to continue career at Pearl River CC

January 18, 2012

Starkville High School's Nathan Pugh has a reputation that attracted Pearl River Community College.

Pugh signed with the Wildcats Tuesday morning at the high school library.

On hand were assistant coaches from PRCC, his family, and SHS head coach Danny Carlisle.

Pearl River CC assistant coach Kyle Lindsey said Pugh's character and talent was something needed in the program.

"(Character is something) we are trying to recruit," Lindsey said. "He fits the mold of character and a great player. He has a chance to pitch and play a position for us as two-way (player)."
