I’m here courtside for what is going to be a long day but it is what it is. Mississippi State is taking on Utah State in hoops then Ill head over to Davis Wade Stadium for tonight’s football game against Vanderbilt. Both of these teams are undefeated so it should be a competitive game. Remember that you can stream this game online at SEC Network +. Utah State’s Sean Harris has a redish blonde cut like the dude from Kid N’ Play. It’s kept my attention during pregame warm-ups.

Mississippi State (2-0)

1-  Fred Thomas, G, 6-5, 206, Jr.

3- Trivante Bloodman,  G, 6-0, 190, Sr.

Bloodman is wearing a brace on his right knee.

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.
