Well, a good Monday to you. Chances are, you're wet or are about to get wet. Looked at the radar this morning, and there was an unbroken line of storms stretching from Houston to Detroit.
The rest of the week looks pretty good weather-wise, which is good news for those engaging in Super Bulldog Weekend activities. It all kicks off Thursday with baseball vs. Tennessee, and the SEC Men's Tennis Tournament starts that day as well at the Pitts Tennis Center. Host MSU is a No. 3 seed and begins play Friday. The Bulldogs beat Ole Miss over the weekend to capture the SEC Western Division title for the second consecutive year.
We might get some rain Friday, but all's clear for Saturday, which is the big day. Sunny, highs in the low 70s. Baseball plays at 1 p.m., then the annual Maroon-White spring game is set for a 5 p.m. start. Let's pray hard against extra innings.
And of course, don't forget the Sugarland concert after the spring game. I can't wait to not watch that. Hey, let's do some linkage now.
• In today's Journal, you can read about MSU baseball being swept by No. 10 South Carolina (CLICK HERE). Good work all weekend by David Cloninger of GamecockCentral.com. The Bulldogs are now 5-10 in SEC play with half the league schedule behind them. Better shake a leg if they want a ticket to Hoover.
• In Sunday's Journal, I had a feature on MSU safety Jay Hughes, who's got talents beyond football (CLICK HERE). He plays guitar in a band, and judging from his YouTube clips, he's pretty good. The band, Melogic, is on Facebook (CLICK HERE).
• A fine column from Jon Solomon about the possibility of exhibition spring games (CLICK HERE). His conclusion: Bad idea.
