Mississippi State opened the first 20 minutes of practice to media. A couple of observations:
- I didn't see Martinas Rankin at practice. When the team went for a quick team period to start practice, Greg Eiland was at left tackle with the rest of the usual starting line in tact. (Update: Interim coach Greg Knox said after practice he was out for graduation ceremonies.)
- I wonder if we're going to see more of Reggie Todd in the bowl game. The first group of wide receivers and tight ends featured the usual suspects -- Farrod Green and Jordan Thomas at tight end alongside Jesse Jackson -- with Todd completing the group. The next group was Gabe Myles, Deddrick Thomas, Jamal Couch and Justin Johnson.
