Ole Miss stands in Vanderbilt's way for 3-0 start

Posted 9/17/2011 in College Sports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vanderbilt coach James Franklin preaches on 6 seconds. He wants his Commodores thinking ahead only for the 6 seconds it takes from the snap of the ball to the whistle. No more, no less. With the Commodores 2-0 and hosting Mississippi in both teams' Southeastern Conference opener today, that is a little tougher for those around long enough to know to enjoy being undefeated. Another win would top the 2-10 marks of each of the past two seasons and match the 3-0 start of 2008 when they went 7-6.

Russell takes over for Relf in fourth quarter

Posted 9/16/2011 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- For the final 10 minutes Thursday, Mississippi State starting quarterback Chris Relf stood on the sidelines with headphones on watching his backup finish the job.

Things don't go as planned for Mullen

Posted 9/16/2011 in Local Columns

Posted 9/16/2011 in High School Sports
