Gearing Up: Football Journal, Opinion Offering

Have you picked up a copy of the Sunday Journal? You need to, because that’s where you will find our annual Football Journal magazine, with wall-to-wall preview coverage of Mississippi State, Ole Miss, the state colleges, junior colleges, the SEC, etc.

As for the MSU stuff, I wrote a column about playing better in the fourth quarter; a feature on senior cornerback Johnthan Banks; a position-by-position breakdown; and a schedule breakdown. Plenty of other goodies in there.

As for today’s sports section, you can find a colum in which I take a stab at predicting MSU’s regular season record (CLICK HERE). I’m going with 9-3. We’ll see.

That Tim Brewster profiled I’d promised got put on hold, so apologies for that.

Tomorrow will be full of MSU football-ness. I’ll have the usual Monday morning First Look blog entry, press conference updates, and whatever else pops up. The craziness is truly upon us. Six days, friends. Six days. MSU vs. Jackson State, 6 p.m., Fox Sports Net.
