Coach Howland previews 2015 basketball season - When Ben Howland speaks, you should listen. And yesterday, he spoke with the media for close to twenty minutes about the upcoming season. He touches on player injuries, the schedule, and the effect of the team's new strength and conditioning program. Click the link for a video of his press conference (via Scout). If you'd prefer to read the transcript, 247Sports has you covered—here's part one, and here's part two. Need more incentive? How's this for a teaser: "Malik Newman, he increased his vertical five and a half inches in two months and put on 11 pounds of muscle."
Bob C.'s game week bonanza - MSU's man behind the man behind the man, Bob Carskaden, has been a busy bee. The link above is to his 2015 football preview, where he breaks the team down position-by-position. His next post is a re-telling of the last game MSU played at USM, which occurred in 1989. Interesting stuff, especially if you, like me, were only vaguely aware of football as a small child back in the late '80s. His last, but surely most important piece is a first-hand survey of Hattiesburg's culinary offerings. Remember the importance of ingesting your opponent, people. Heed Bob's advice.
Five new members of the MSU Sports Hall of Fame - Eric Moulds, Eric Dampier, and three other legends will be inducted next month.
Bottom-tier SEC East Action - South Carolina and Vanderbilt both played last night to open the SEC season. If you missed it, SC squeaked (or stumbled) past UNC, and Vandy . . . ummm . . . . Well, Vandy vandied itself again. Poor Vandy.
