STARKVILLE -- Sylvester Croom knew about Alabama football better than most. Croom was a player and an assistant coach at Alabama for 14 years, so his players at Mississippi State knew Croom meant it when he said they were better than Alabama.
The Ole Miss football team has had plenty of excuses to have a miserable 2017 season.
Tyrell Price wasn't concerned about the recent lack of focus on a running game at East Mississippi Community College. The former Lafayette County High School standout knew the program had a rich tradition of strong running backs. He also had confidence in his ability if given a chance to shine.
STARKVILLE -- Myah Taylor needed assistance.
STARKVILLE -- Even in a game week, Lamar Peters was showing up to practice sweaty.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State football team had one interception in its first five games. Last in the nation in that category, MSU spent its bye week charting opportunities and searching for answers.

STARKVILLE -- On second down on Massachusetts' first drive, the Mississippi State football team had defensive lineman Jeffery Simmons directly over the center, Montez Sweat as the end to Simmons' right, Braxton Hoyett as the tackle to his left and Gerri Green outside of him. Prior to the snap, Simmons shuffled to his right.
A strange thing happened on the way to this weekend's Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) state championship game: the East Mississippi Community College football team became the nation's top-ranked team.

STARKVILLE -- Dez Harris doesn't concern himself with what it means to play Alabama.

His most recent experience was his worst, a 51-3 loss last season in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
STARKVILLE -- Dan Mullen had the grounds to rip off one for the highlight reel at halftime. Mississippi State's football coach could have given his offense a halftime speech for the ages after watching it gain 4.2 yards per play, commit two turnovers, and convert 25 percent of its a third downs against Massachusetts in the first 30 minutes. Those woes were the primary reason for MSU's seven-point deficit to UMass.
