On the Links: Bumphis and Baseball

You might have seen late last night the news about Mississippi State wide receiver Chad Bumphis suffering a broken ankle. That’s what he wrote on his Twitter page, and he said he’s supposed to have surgery on it this morning.

No word on how he broke it. A team spokesman said Bumphis is being evaluated this morning and more should be known later.

Bumphis, a junior from Tupelo, has led MSU in receiving each of the past two seasons, totaling 1,009 yards and nine touchdowns on 76 catches in his career.

• MSU’s baseball team heads to Pearl tonight for a Governor’s Cup showdown with Ole Miss (6:30, CSS). I’ll have more on the matchup later. In the meantime, here is today’s Bulldog notebook.
