Prepping for the Football Season07/07/2014 Duración: 30min
Another month has flipped on the calendar, and that means we are one step closer to college football. Mississippi State's fans are excited about the season, as are the fans of most teams, so we will start to dig in to the season previews that we are doing over at MaroonAndWhiteNation.com. I also want to talk about a story that Beast Man Steve posted on his website 3rdand57.com a week and a half ago. It talked about how Ole Miss Compliance had another victory that most of us had forgotten about. It was an odd matter to start with, but Ole Miss is setting the tone that Mississippi State's Compliance Department should be following. Last, we can't get ready for the 2014 season without talking about expectations. Expectations help guide the way we feel about our respective teams. If the team met or exceeded those expectations, we are normally pretty happy. If they didn't live up to them, then fans get upset. So what are realistic expectations, and what should we be hoping for from the 2014 Bulldogs? We will dive

Should be a lot of fun, so make sure to tune in on Thursday at 3:00.

Weekend Media Circus12/06/2014 Duración: 29min
Over this past weekend, Mississippi State was involved in some interesting media stories. The first involved Mike Bianchi, columnist for the Orlando Sentinel. He suggested in one of his columns that both Mississippi schools should be kicked out of the SEC and replaced with UCF and USF. We will break down his arguments for those moves on the show. On Monday, Matthew Stevens, long time Beat Writer for Mississippi State at the Commercial Dispatch was terminated from his position. We will talk about how he covered the Bulldogs, and what he said to get himself terminated. And one of the love hate things we have in the preseason of football is the numerous predictions. It never hurts to take a peek at those and just see what national and local media think about the upcoming Bulldogs' season. It'll be fun, so hope you join me!
Rivalry Chat with Brad Logan10/06/2014 Duración: 30min
The Mississippi State-Ole Miss took an interesrting turn last night as the Rebels advanced to the College World Series for the first time since 1972. What does this mean for the rivalry? We will have Brad Logan from Ole Miss Rebel Nation Magazine to discuss what the other side of the rivalry thinks about the current events in the Magnolia State. Other things that we will be sure to discuss will be the upcoming football season. As both teams enter the season riding some positive preseason buzz, how will each team focus on the task at hand, and how much could the rivalry heat up if both teams enter Thanksgiving weekend with 8 or more wins? We will also try to touch on the Mike Bianchi article that generated a lot of discussion here in Mississippi this past weekend. We will ask Brad how Ole Miss fans viewed it, and if it resonated with them like it did with Mississippi State fans. As always, it should be fun, and I hope you enjoy it.
