From Mississippi sports writer Rick Cleveland: Outfielder Jake Mangum is the guy who makes Mississippi State's baseball team go. He's the energy, the engine. He makes all those around him better. Why wasn't he drafted higher than the 32nd round?
Ole Miss, Southern Miss and Mississippi State all made the NCAA baseball tournament field, announced Monday. While the state has been considered a football power, could it be time to rethink that? Baseball, maybe?
What native Mississippian scored perhaps the most famous touchdown in college football history, one that still gets replayed countless times nearly 60 years after the deed was performed? Billy Cannon, who died Sunday in Baton Rouge.
Billy Brewer, who coached Ole Miss from 1983 to 1994, died Saturday, May 12, 2018. The former Rebel football player returned as a coach and led the team back to success it had not enjoyed since the John Vaught era.
Sam Burns, an LSU product now playing on the Buy.com Tour, and Braden Thornberry, a junior at Ole Miss, have taken different paths in their golf careers. Expect them to intersect at some point in the near future.
Mississippi State senior All America Victoria Vivians has not surprised many with the honors she has gathered in her college basketball career. The Lady Bulldogs' loss in the NCAA women's championship game cannot diminish it.
There are any number of ways to describe how good State has been thus far, but perhaps the best is this: The Bulldogs have been so good that Schaefer has been able to redshirt five-star guard Myah Taylor, who has to be the nation’s most heralded scout team player.
Usually it takes two or three years to really know how you did in a draft. Not this time. Little more than eight months after last April’s draft we can safely call 2017’s the best draft in the New Orleans Saints’ history.
