News and Notes: Mississippi State vs Charleston Southern was Fun

College football is back and it was fun. Well, it was fun if your team won. Like MSU did. We won big.

Let’s get to the linkage.

Around the Internet:

TEXAS IS BACK- to having embarassing losses. Lol.

Lolololol. Texas A&M blew a 34 point lead. THEY BLEW A 34 POINT LEAD

Lol. Sucks to be those two teams. Could you imagine having an awful, horrendous, rage-inducing, explosive loss to start the college football season? Clearly none of us here at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls has experienced such an atrocity.

Hmm? What’s that?

Oh, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have no memories of September 3rd, 2016. None. At. All.

I do remember seeing UT and A&M blow it this weekend. That was fun.

In Case You Missed It From For Whom the Cowbell Tolls:

Back in Black: Mississippi State Exceeded Expectations in their 49-0 win over Charleston Southern- Mississippi State exceeded expectations on Saturday, particularly so when you remember what a disappointment the 2016 season was in its entirety.

5 Takeaways: Dawgs Sink the Bucs- There’s a ton of things that you could potentially take away from a 49-0 victory to open the season. Our friend Alex narrowed it down to the five most important things to hold on to from Saturday’s game.

The Walk Home Recap: Mississippi State Crushes Charleston Southern- I took a look at everything that happened in SEC play, except for A&M and Tennessee because they hadn’t played yet.

Chauncey Rivers Ruled Ineligible- Mississippi State was expecting big things from the star defensive end transferring in from EMCC. However, it looks like MSU will have to wait a year as Rivers is taking a redshirt to preserve his eligibility.

Five Word Reactions: Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Charleston Southern- Twitter is often a source of rage, anger, and general idiocracy. It’s also SOOOO MUCH FUN. And twitter did not disappoint with their thoughts on MSU’s win.

Bulldogs Throttle Charleston Southern in 2017 Opener- Mississippi State owned Charleston Southern. Pure and simple. Complete dominance.

Mississippi State Extends Women’s Basketball Head Coach Vic Schaefer’s Contract- I love Vic Schaefer. I have a tattoo that is a tribute to his famed slogan of “Praise the Lord and Go Dawgs.” And I’m excited to see that he’ll be around in Starkville for a while longer. He’s earned his pay raise.

Music Time:

Post Malone covering Bob Dylan’s “Don't Think Twice, It's All Right”

Post Malone is an interesting character. He’s really something else. Aside from being an eccentric rapper with some, well, interesting songs, he’s a pretty talented musician in his own right.

Jamey Johnson and Alison Krauss covering "Seven Spanish Angels"

Alison Krauss is arguably one of the most iconic bluegrass singers of all time with a truly iconic and soothing voice. Jamey Johnson’s owns an iconic voice in its own right, but one that holds more grit and depth to it. What happens when you ask these two to cover “Seven Spanish Angels” as a way to tribute Ray Charles and Willie Nelson at the Gershwin Prize awards where Willie Nelson is being honored? You get a very good cover, though it still pales a bit in comparison to the original.
