Links on recruit Tony Conner, MSU commit Chris Jones, baseball commits, the Snow Bowl and Egg Bowl Unis, and more!

  • Did you miss anything from yesterday's Snow Bowl and Egg Bowl jersey reveal? If you did, make sure to catch it all right here in our 2012 MSU Uniform Unveiling storystream (storystream is one of those awesome new features of the site that I LOVE).
  • Tony Connor, 5* Safety prospect out of Batesville (South Panola), gets some love from 24/7's JC Shurburtt, who tabs Connor as the best available safety prospect in the class of 2013. You can read more on Connor here in a little bit in JLgrindin's off week recruiting update.

  • Travey Haney of ESPN shows MSU some love and even says we are "building (a) quiet BCS case". Warning: link is behind ESPNinsider paywall.
  • From my boy Bobby C., this is something I missed yesterday in the excitement of the new jersey reveals. The inside collar of the Egg Bowl jersey says "this is our state", and if you look up at the top right, you'll see that that phrase has apparently been trademarked by the school.
