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.

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.
