EMCC to induct eight into Hall

And the winner is: The Ole Miss 'Rebel Black Bear'

The new mascot of the University of Mississippi Rebels will be a black bear, officially replacing the goateed Southern gentleman "Colonel Reb" who was banished from the sidelines almost seven years ago. Thursday's unveiling of the "Rebel Black Bear" is the latest move in the school's effort to distance itself from symbols of the old South.

Posted 10/14/2010 in College Sports

Confident Bulldogs ready for Gators

Posted 10/12/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen believes last year's loss to the University of Florida was an awakening for his team. In Starkville, Mullen led the Bulldogs to a near-upset of the Tim Tebow-led, No. 1-ranked Gators.

MSU men's basketball will have to do without, with Bost, Sidney

Posted 10/9/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Now that Mississippi State's men's basketball team knows when its suspended players will return to the court, the Bulldogs now must find a way back to the NCAA tournament.

Bost, Sidney discuss NCAA dealings

Posted 10/8/2010 in College Sports

Posted 10/8/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The players have changed, but the message is the same.

Posted 10/8/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Kayla Woodard's path to Starkville wasn't conventional. It's not often volleyball players from small schools in the state of Alabama go largely unrecruited, accept an offer to walk on at a Division I school, earn a scholarship, and become one of their team's most valuable players on and off the court.
