MSU still confident despite mistakes

Posted 9/17/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- If there was a loss that stood out the most to Mississippi State football fans in 2009, it was the home defeat to LSU. The 30-26 loss could have been the Bulldogs' first win against the Tigers since 1999. The sequence of events in the final minute of the game, however, made the result the most distinguishable of MSU's seven defeats last season.

 

 

New Hope will try to find 'it' against Caledonia

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Gutcheck time for Heritage Academy

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

It will be gutcheck time from here on out for the Heritage Academy football team. Judging from last week, the Patriots just might be on the move toward the program's first winning season since 2005. To accomplish that goal, Heritage Academy (3-1) will look to capitalize on the momentum it earned last week in a victory against Lamar School at 7 tonight when it plays host to Madison-Ridgeland Academy (1-2).

 

 

Columbus will try to build momentum against Louisville

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

No hype needed for Noxubee County-West Point

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Another week. Another rivalry matchup for the West Point High School football team. Not that coach Chris Chambless minds, but coming off a heart-breaking 21-20 loss to Starkville High, he knows the importance of bouncing back at 7:30 tonight against Noxubee County (4-0). Chambless watched his team blow a 20-0 lead against the Yellow Jackets, turn the ball over three times in the second half, and commit four personal foul penalties in the loss. Carrying that lack of discipline into district play, which begins in a week, isn't ideal for a team looking to repeat as Class 5A state champions.

Coaches feel past will help future for Oak Hill, Hebron Christian

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

The past is going to help the Oak Hill Academy and Hebron Christian football teams in the future. How the first four games of each team's season will affect their matchup at 7:30 tonight in Pheba remains to be seen. One thing is certain: Oak Hill Academy (0-4) and Hebron Christian (1-3) will enter tonight's game with many similarities. Both teams are expected to dress out less than 20 players. Both teams also have experienced their share of growing pains.

Alabama walk-on Lowery lands playing time

Posted 9/17/2010 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Will Lowery's view of the University of Alabama football games has changed.

He was the one making the play.

 

 

Southern Miss' Brown seeks redemption after getting ripped by coach

Posted 9/17/2010 in College Sports

Cooper plays hard to lead Immanuel past Heritage

Posted 9/15/2010 in High School Sports

STEENS -- Meghan Cooper has a simple philosophy that serves her well on the soccer field: Always go hard. It's a message Ray Campbell has instilled in Cooper and the rest of the players on the Immanuel Christian girls soccer team. Add in some deft passing skills and combination play and a stingy defense and it's easy to see why the Lady Rams are having a playoff season.

 

 

Hebron Christian clinches district title

Posted 9/15/2010 in High School Sports

MSU QB combo still a go

Posted 9/15/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Through two games, Mississippi State's offense has had performances at opposite ends of the football spectrum.  In Mississippi State's 49-7 season-opening win against Memphis, backup quarterback Tyler Russell threw for four touchdowns and the team eclipsed 500 yards of total offense.  But in a 17-14 loss to Auburn this past Thursday, Mississippi State was held to less than 250 yards of offense and left stewing about unforced mistakes in a game it believed it should have won.
