- First, some light-hearted humor. As some of you saw on Twitter, Joe Moorhead had a press conference Saturday but I was out of town for a friend's 30th birthday bash. I told Moorhead such at the Starkville High game Friday; he was surprised. So when he saw me on the practice field today, he welcomed me back and asked how my, "vacation," was. What a guy.
- Safety Shawn Preston Jr. and wide receiver Cameron Gardner, both freshmen, were not practicing today. Preston had a boot on his left foot.
- Running back Aeris Williams was practicing but doing so in a limited-contact yellow jersey.
- Here's the second-team offensive line from left to right: Tommy Champion, Evans Wilkerson, Blake Mitchell, Dareuan Parker and Tyre Phillips.
