STARKVILLE -- Nobody is suggesting LSU's football players transform into superior human beings when the sun goes down Saturdays at Tiger Stadium.
OXFORD -- The University of Mississippi men's basketball team's Murphy Holloway and Reginald Buckner are two of the most productive frontcourt players in school history.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban doesn't waive his 24-hour celebration rule even after dramatic, last-minute victories that rescue the No. 1 University Alabama football team's hopes for a national title.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama men's basketball team will have mostly the same players but a significantly different look this season.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vanderbilt University football coach James Franklin is eager to take his Commodores on the road again. Apparently, his host for the weekend is just as enthusiastic.
STARKVILLE -- Dan Mullen wants everybody who has a passion for Mississippi State University football to know where to point the finger.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University men's basketball coach Rick Ray has said repeatedly his team must work harder and be tougher and smarter than every opponent to consider its performance a success. During brief portions of its exhibition game against William Carey University on Sunday afternoon, MSU accomplished all three of those items. In longer stretches, though, it did none of them, but it still earned an 80-74 victory at Humphrey Coliseum.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- At the University of Alabama, it will go down as a crimson version of "The Drive." For AJ McCarron, it confirmed what the Crimson Tide already knew -- this guy is a heck of a quarterback.
STARKVILLE -- It may have taken another unexpected snowstorm to stop Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M University football team's offense.
STARKVILLE -- It was clear the Texas A&M University defensive staff watched the beating Mississippi State University quarterback Tyler Russell took last week.
STARKVILLE -- It turns out good guys can wear a black hat, too.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- While a small batch of University of Alabama fans celebrated behind the end zone at Tiger Stadium, A.J. McCarron found his parents at the edge of the stands. He lunged into their arms, his watery-eyed father rubbing his son's hair. McCarron had vowed he wouldn't let his team lose to LSU in the game of the year. The Crimson Tide quarterback was true to his word.
ATHENS, Ga. -- One of Mark Richt's oldest trick plays gave the University of Georgia football team the lift it needed to remain on track for a shot at the Southeastern Conference title.
SCOOBA -- With 21 seconds left in regulation, the Copiah-Lincoln Community College football team was down to one person who could single-handedly beat East Mississippi C.C. Joe Craig did just that.
STARKVILLE -- It has been seven months since Rick Ray was hired as Mississippi State University's 19th men's basketball coach in school history.
STARKVILLE -- Carnecia Williams and Katia May scored 13 points each, and a stifling Mississippi State University defense forced 26 turnovers in a 55-49 exhibition win against Shorter on Friday night at Humphrey Coliseum.
OXFORD -- Hugh Freeze is working his turnaround magic again -- this time in the Southeastern Conference.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- A quarterback described as a game manager can often be perceived as someone who's mostly responsible for supervising plays and not making them. Unless the QB is AJ McCarron and he plays for Nick Saban.
Neil McGuire has nothing but great things to say about his time at Mississippi State University.
STARKVILLE -- Rick Ray is curious to see how his style of play is received in his first season in the Southeastern Conference -- and his first as a Division I head coach.
