The Notebook: 9-17

So, How Was Your Day

We had a bit of news late this evening, as Mississippi State announced that Jalen Steele, a senior guard on the basketball team, will not play his final year at MSU. Steele has dealt with a string of major injuries in his career. We wish the best for Steele as he finishes his degree.

On the court, it’s certainly a loss, but sophomore Craig Sword is moving to his natural position of two-guard now that MSU has point guard depth, so Rick Ray’s squad won’t be without a quality player at the position.

The Bulldogs start practice in October and, despite a couple injuries, will still have a significantly more full roster than last year.

In football news, Geoff Collins and a few others spoke to the media tonight (which we’ll have more from soon). MSU’s preparation for Troy is an interesting one, an offense more reminiscent of Oklahoma State than Auburn.

I won’t give away too much as I talked about this in the Keys To The Game section of Saturday’s program (buy a copy!), but Troy threw the ball 51 times this past weekend against Arkansas State. Their pass-first spread is an interesting one.


Dan Mullen has his weekly SEC teleconference tomorrow late morning, his second-to-last public speaking engagement before Saturday’s game.
