Note: I was unable to post these earlier due to wireless complications at the BancorpSouth Arena where Memphis defeated LSU 70-61. Malcolm White had five points and four rebounds in 17 minutes for LSU. He fouled out with about 2 1-2 minutes left.
– Sophomore RB Rodney Scott has left the team. Nutt says he expects to meet with Scott and his father after the season. Scott has been basically the fourth running back this season.
– No real injuries that weren’t visible in last night’s loss to LSU. Bumps and bruises, Nutt says.
– Nutt says he has a much better understanding of the meaning of the Mississippi State game after last year’s 41-27 loss in Starkville. Robert Khayat told me last year that he pulled Nutt aside on his hiring and explained to him the importance of the MSU game.
– Nutt characterized his relationship with MSU coach Dan Mullen as friendly but not very deep. My words there, not his.
