It has been long enough.
When it comes to hosting an NCAA college baseball regional tournament, Mississippi State has been left out of the picture for 10 years now.
The last time the Bulldogs hosted a regional was in 2003. That's when MSU welcomed teams like North Carolina, Middle Tennessee and future Southeastern Conference member Missouri to Starkville.
The Bulldogs did have the 2007 Super Regional at Dudy Noble Field and that helped pave the way to the College World Series. That opportunity was basically earned because MSU swept through the Tallahassee Regional.
