Softball Travels To Lafayette For NCAA Tournament -

Softball is heading back to regionals for the third straight year following a really good regular season campaign.  They drew a tough, tough draw, though, in the regionals as the lady dogs were sent to Lafayette to play in a regional with number six overall seed UL-Lafayette.  Van's team kicks off play against Texas on Friday. Good luck ladies!

Walker's Base on Balls In 12th Gives MSU Series Win Against Vols -

Just win, baby.  That's what Al Davis said, and after this weekend that's all MSU can say after winning some ugly games against Tennessee.  Sunday's was the ugliest, as MSU needed a walk with two outs and the bases loaded to win the game, 4-3.  Despite the Bulldogs' struggles at the plate lately, they came away from the weekend winning two of three, which is all that counts.  A big, big weekend in Tuscaloosa looms large as Thursday and the final weekend of the regular season comes around.

An excerpt:

Q: Your college coach said you're a guy that leads by example. Do you see that changing in the NFL?

Jackson: "No, when I get there and I'm around the older guys, I can learn from them and get into that role."
