STARKVILLE -- JP France has spent years as the guy who does what's needed.
As the marquee arm for Tulane in the first three seasons of his college career, he played a key role in helping the Green Wave earn key Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) wins.
STARKVILLE -- Comfort was an acquired taste through Kylin Hill's freshman season at Mississippi State.
The former Columbus High School standout running back had enough on the surface being 30 minutes from home and playing in an offense that resembled his prep system that made him one of the nation's top prospects at his position. All that was missing was the details.
STARKVILLE -- Austin Williams came off the line running an option route.
Against a zone defense, Williams is supposed to sink to a hole and stay there. Against a man-to-man, Williams is supposed to use an out route to beat the defense. The man coverage forced Williams to the sideline, several yards into the end zone. It also created a difficult window -- high and to a moving target with a defender in hot pursuit -- for quarterback Keytaon Thompson to hit. The shrinking pocket around Thompson also made footwork tricky.
STARKVILLE -- Joe Moorhead and his new Mississippi State football coaches didn't have any film from the 2017 season to evaluate wide receiver Austin Williams.
STARKVILLE -- Elijah MacNamee bounced as the final out was recorded.
With the fans a few feet behind him in right field, MacNamee screamed as he backed up in the direction of his fellow outfielders. They met midair in a celebration that followed with an extra slapping of hands with center fielder Jake Mangum. The intensity on MacNamee's face began to fade to a smile weeks in the making.
STARKVILLE -- What has become the new normal for the Mississippi State baseball team's corner outfield positions could change at any given moment. Frankly, most involved hope it does.
STARKVILLE -- Joe Moorhead still gets starstruck. He felt it when he called Dak Prescott.
STARKVILLE -- The college baseball recruiting timeline just got more compact.
STARKVILLE -- On this November third down against UMass, Johnathan Abram was doing what he does best. Mississippi State's hard-hitting safety was flying down the left side of the offensive formation, barreling into the blind spot of quarterback Ross Comis.
WEST POINT -- Monday was a day where par was a good get at Old Waverly Golf Club, and Garrett Johnson needed help stringing them together.
STARKVILLE -- A comedic smile cracks over Ben Howland's face as he discusses a simple reality of next year's roster: it will contain multiple seniors.
STARKVILLE -- Terrell Buckley's legendary athletic career launched him right into a coaching career that is soon to hit its 12th season. An athlete of his versatility, having played multiple football positions, baseball and ran track all at high levels, certainly had a wide range of possibilities for himself in the field.
STARKVILLE -- Injuries limited the playing time of senior wide receivers Gabe Myles and Donald Gray last season.
But Myles and Gray weren't the only two receivers the Mississippi State football team missed.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State baseball team's earned run average of 3.55 ranks ninth in the Southeastern Conference.
But MSU pitchers are 12th in batting average allowed (.250), 11th in walks allowed (128), and 13th in hits allowed (290).
The defense of shortstop Luke Alexander and second baseman Hunter Stovall has helped the Bulldogs' pitching staff make up for those stats.
STARKVILLE -- Ben Howland is excited about the offseason.
In his third season at Mississippi State, Howland led the Bulldogs to the postseason for the first time since 2012. MSU (25-12, 9-9 Southeastern Conference) defeated Nebraska, Baylor, and Louisville to advance to the semifinals of the National Invitation Tournament in New York, where it lost to eventual champion Penn State.
STARKVILLE -- Matt Roberts had a feeling.
The Mississippi State men's tennis team won four of five matches as the calendar turned from January to February and was ranked No. 15 in the nation, but Roberts knew something could be better, so he took a risk and shuffled his doubles lineup.
STARKVILLE -- First-year defensive coordinator Bob Shoop and new linebackers coach Tem Lukabu like what they see from the Mississippi State defense.
STARKVILLE -- Luke Alexander craned his neck toward the overcast sky and watched as what will almost certainly be the biggest moment of his Mississippi State baseball career soar away. Even he didn't think it would come in this fashion.
STARKVILLE -- In the Mississippi State baseball team's well-documented offensive struggles through March, the catcher position was offering little relief. Marshall Gilbert entered this weekend's series against No. 3 Ole Miss (27-6, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) with a .238 batting average and Dustin Skelton was getting more starts with his .193.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State's men's basketball program announced Sunday evening that forwards Xavian Stapleton and Eli Wright will transfer away from the program.
