Neil Price will take over the Play by Play Duties of the recently retired Jim Ellis starting this season. In addition to his Play by Play duties for Football and Basketball, Price will be hosting “Dawg Talk” the weekly coaches call in show for both Football and Basketball.

And not only is his delivery smooth, but he does his homework on the opponents. When Mississippi State played Kentucky in Women’s Basketball earlier this year, he knew a lot about Mississippi State and could name the connections between Mississippi State and Kentucky. And now Mississippi State has another connection to Kentucky in it’s Play by Play Radio Commentator.
