A big sports weekend is in the books, and things went pretty well all across the board for MSU's spring sports. Additionally, 16 teams are left in this year's men's NCAA tournament after what proved to be a wild opening weekend to this year's tourney. Your MSU News & Notes are all right here


Humphrey Coliseum to get new main video board -

NOTE: At the time that we were putting together these links, Daktronics, a leading company in the field of sports video board construction, tweeted out an announcement for a new video board that is to be constructed at the Humphrey Coliseum. That tweet has since been taken down, as have subsequent retweets by various MSU officials. It's clear that the announcement is coming, there seems to just be a holdup somewhere along the line. We'll add the link above when it goes live.

Mississippi State officially announces that Humphrey Coliseum will get a new video board, replacing the $1.8 million video board that has been in place since 2004. This was a definite need at The Hump, so it's nice to see it getting addressed. I would venture to guess that any additional changes/renovation at The Hump are a ways out with the teams recent struggles and with baseball likely in line in front of them.
