STARKVILLE -- With one swing, Mississippi State second baseman John Holland erased a week of frustration.
Holland also woke up the Mississippi State baseball team's offense.
Stepping to the plate in a scoreless game against Auburn, Holland admitted he and his teammates were feeling the weight of a 29-inning scoring drought, one that dated back to last weekend's series finale at Kentucky.

STARKVILLE -- The most electric atmosphere in Mississippi State's Humphrey Coliseum in months had nothing to do with a basketball game.
STARKVILLE -- Ben Howland watched and waited for two long years.
A 19-year veteran of college basketball's coaching ranks, Howland went about his days in his native Southern California, yearning to coach but without a place to ply his trade.
Two years after he was fired from his dream job at UCLA, where he won 233 games and led the program to three Final Four appearances in 10 seasons, Howland endured two seasons without blowing a whistle, without barking a command, without winning a game.
PHEBA -- Asked Monday morning to name his favorite sport, Channing Tapley shrugged his shoulders.
It was just after 9 a.m. and Tapley was missing Algebra II to talk about his exploits on the football field, on the basketball court, and on the diamond at Hebron Christian School.
It's a scenario Tapley is getting used to.

STARKVILLE -- On paper, Rick Ray's third season as coach of the Mississippi State men's basketball team was worse than his second.

But the players already are looking forward to Ray's fourth season in charge.
STARKVILLE -- After a topsy-turvy week filled with multiple arrests and a nationally publicized incident involving quarterback Dak Prescott, Mississippi State's football players went back to work Tuesday.

What should have been a quiet week for Mississippi State's football team was anything but.
STARKVILLE - Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen admitted in the offseason it would be hard for the Bulldogs to replace bullpen stalwarts Jonathan Holder and Jacob Lindgren.
Cohen didn't know it would be this hard.
STARKVILLE -- It happened again.
And John Cohen could barely hide his disgust.
Cohen, Mississippi State's seventh-year baseball coach, talked to media after an 8-4 loss to Alabama on Sunday, a loss that once again featured a meltdown by the normally reliable bullpen.
In the finale of the three-game series, MSU relievers failed again to get the job done in the eighth inning, allowing four runs to turn a nip-and-tuck game into a runaway for the Crimson Tide. The implosion came 24 hours after the bullpen yielded eight runs in the eighth in a 10-5 loss.
The road to redemption continues for Justin Cox.
