Stumpy: I was there. Yeah, it was called the '80s. Ford was President, Nixon was in the White House and FDR was running this country into the ground. I was bummin' in a hole-in-a-wall town in what is now called Utah. Some fella from Colorado shows up, starts making so called "improvements", right? Before we knew what hit us, the streets are running with latte. It got so bad that a fella that liked to, you know... smoke a little grass or drink a little ripple. Crow like a rooster, maybe challenge the mayor's son to a gentlemen's duel, was "uncouth, against God." More like bad real estate values. Stumpy had to go!

Diamond Dogs Fall In Series Finale At LSU -

Yeah I don't even know what happened yesterday.  Not the way you want to respond after a tough 2-1 loss on Saturday, and today the Bulldogs start the week off looking to erase the demons from this past weekend's trip to Baton Rouge.  Again, it's worth noting that, even though MSU is hitting very poorly right now, we are still 3-1 in conference series' so far, so we've still been able to do enough to get by, except for this past weekend.

The sweep makes this weekend against Ole Miss an even bigger series for State.  I'm sure practice will be motivated this week.

John Cohen gets tossed against LSU [.GIF] - FWtCT

ICYMI yesterday morning, and even if you didn't, I now suggest you watch STUNNED LSU HIPPIE CHICK in the top of the frame who totally can't even deal with Cohen's rage, man.  Seriously though, I stroke my hair in IN TENTS situations too, sometimes.

WrestleMania 30: The Undertaker loses to Brock Lesnar, but Daniel Bryan is champion - SBNation

I don't habla wrestling, but if you are a fan, SBNation has a full recap of everything from last night's big event in the Big Easy.  Whether you are a fan of wrestling or not, though, this .GIF is applicable so much in life.  Seriously, I can't stop watching it:

Championship preview: UConn's defense will test Kentucky - USA Today

This is the championship matchup we all had two weeks ago, right?!  A 7 seed and an 8 seed face off tonight in the men's national championship, and this idiot is just 40 minutes and a UK victory away from being... well still an idiot, I presume.  This is my favorite quote from that piece:

He's only ever seen one Kentucky game in person, the 2012 season opener against Marist.

Kentucky fans are never ever ever ever ever ever allowed to make fun of Alabama fans, ever.

That's it for us today.  Have a great Monday, and Hail State
