Many of you will be sitting down with family members for a Thanksgiving feast Thursday.
MACON -- Staying humble is important to Armoni Clark.
STARKVILLE -- Vic Schaefer believes in Teaira McCowan.
Johnny Stokes didn't intend to get himself a birthday present Sunday.
Richard Parker used to live in the New Hope community, so he knows about the generosity and the hospitality in the Golden Triangle.
STARKVILLE -- When Loryn Phillips looks back on it, her husband Josiah has never really been the stereotypical college student. He's never been one to spend his evenings in the bar or otherwise; he's always been at home, serving as someone's caretaker.
STARKVILLE -- Usually after practice, college football players are quick to leave campus. After class all morning and a trek across campus to hours of football obligations, most of Mississippi State's players file out of the building -- some of them with dinner in hand -- quick to get off campus.
When West Point senior Jason Brownlee is asked whether he prefers playing offense or playing defense, he takes a long pause before answering.
JACKSON -- The Starkville Academy football team's 2017 championship season will forever have a myth associated with it.
MACON -- Green space is an offensive lineman's dream. On every snap, the goal of a tackle, guard, or center is to finish or to hold a block long enough so a running back or quarterback can slip through a hole and take off.
STARKVILLE -- The extra planes made the big difference. With a Thursday game looming after a Saturday win, the coaching staff doesn't have the time to go through the usual procedure for leaving a road game with the team; it needs to get back home as soon as possible to begin an accelerated work week.
STARKVILLE -- Quinndary Weatherspoon went 1-for-8 from the field and missed all five of his 3-pointers. Weatherspoon's teammates on the Mississippi State men's basketball team didn't fare much better, combining to go 3-for-18 from behind the arc.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The No. 1 Alabama football team's path to the Southeastern Conference championship and an assured spot in the playoffs is clear but awfully treacherous.
LAS VEGAS -- After graduating from Long Beach State in the spring, guard Justin Bibbins contacted Utah men's basketball coach Larry Krystkowiak about playing for the Utes as a graduate-transfer.
STARKVILLE -- Hard work pays off.
STARKVILLE -- Roshunda Johnson didn't catch the Pop-Up Video that included anecdotes and highlights of her career at Mississippi State that was shown Sunday on the video board at Humphrey Coliseum.
STARKVILLE -- Joye-Lee McNelis heard the whispers. Coaches, like in any profession, talk about their peers, so the Southern Mississippi women's basketball coach was curious to see if some in her business were right when they said Mississippi State wouldn't be as strong after losing four key players from a program-record 34-win season and a trip to the national title game. McNelis saw an effort Sunday that should put all of that talk to rest.
East Mississippi Community College is mourning the loss of one of its most popular football players today. Sophomore Tyone Clemons was killed in a one-vehicle accident late Saturday morning in Jones County. A former All-State lineman at West Jones High School, Clemons died shortly after a wreck on Summerland Road, close to the West Jones High campus.
STARKVILLE -- Lamar Peters picked the pocket of Florida A&M's Nasir Core and passed to Tyson Carter for an easy dunk. The play gave the Mississippi State men's basketball team a 15-2 lead at the 14-minute, 23-second mark of the first half. The Bulldogs didn't score for another 4:40.
Anthony Carlyle is jumping right into the mix in his first season as boys basketball coach at Columbus High School. After rallying for a victory against Starkville on Tuesday, Columbus will turn its focus to the national scene when it takes on nationally ranked Memphis East at 7:30 tonight in the MLK Classic at Hamilton High in Hamilton, Tennessee.
