Live from the Hump

Humphrey Coliseum

Humphrey Coliseum

Mississippi State hosts Florida A&M tonight in men’s basketball action. The crowd inside the Hump is very scarce, likely in the hundreds instead of thousands. It’s been a busy day so far but I’ve gotten a lot done and even got a little Christmas shopping done as well. Stay tuned throughout the evening and I’ll have updates from all the action here in Starkville.

Roquez Johnson is going through warm-ups for the Bulldogs so looks like his knee is fine.

I feel the need to remind people that it’s the National Anthem and not American Idol.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
