Diaz returns to MSU as defensive coordinator

Posted 1/6/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- In an effort to take his team forward, Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen decided Monday to take a step backward. To do that, Mullen reached back four years and re-hired Manny Diaz as MSU's new defensive coordinator. Diaz held the position when MSU went 9-4 in 2010.

 

 

MSU men will try to build on latest win in SEC opener

Posted 1/6/2015 in College Sports

James, MSU women hit 17

Posted 1/5/2015 in College Sports

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- When the Mississippi State women's basketball team didn't have answers on offense, it turned its game up on defense. On a frigid shooting afternoon for both teams, No. 17 MSU found its offensive spark at the right time to earn a 53-47 victory against Missouri in its first Southeastern Conference road game of the season at the Mizzou Arena.

 

 

No. 17 MSU gears up for second SEC test

Posted 1/3/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Vic Schaefer had to adjust his eyes. For years, the veteran coach has watched his teams come to embrace terms like "blood baths" and "train wrecks" as part of an aggressive in-your-face style of play that revolves around suffocating defense. It's no wonder then that Schaefer has earned the nickname "Secretary of Defense" for his players' penchant for diving on loose balls, helping teammates by taking charges, and playing defense with a mind-set that takes it as an insult when a team scores.

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State women's basketball team showed Friday it is ready to face the "monster" that is the Southeastern Conference. Buoyed by key contributions from its healthy seniors and a balanced scoring effort, No. 17 MSU showed the tenacity and the toughness it will take to survive the SEC marathon with a 64-56 victory against No. 19 Georgia before a season-high crowd of 4,114 at Humphrey Coliseum.

 

 

MSU men outlast FSU

Posted 1/3/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- When Mississippi State's men's basketball players walked into the home locker room at the Humphrey Coliseum on Friday afternoon, their eyes were drawn to a message coach Rick Ray had written on a white board at the front of the room. That message: "Perception vs. reality." "I told them the perception of us because of how many games we've lost is we are a bad basketball team," said Ray, whose team had lost six of its past seven games. "I also told them that in reality we are a good basketball team. We just haven't been showing it." MSU's reality caught up with Ray's perception against Florida State.

STARKVILLE -- The name-your-score portion of the Mississippi State women's basketball team's 2014-15 schedule is over.

Kiffin has had season of redemption at Alabama

Posted 12/30/2014 in College Sports

NEW ORLEANS -- Lane Kiffin was modest in his goals and complimentary about the team he'll be facing in the Sugar Bowl. He went on and on about how much he's learned from Nick Saban, while insisting it's no big deal when his boss yells at him. Very un-Kiffin-like, you might say.

 

 

Alabama's defense stressing clutch plays over statistics

Posted 12/29/2014 in College Sports

NEW ORLEANS -- Alabama football coach Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Kirby Smart have fielded some of the most formidable, suffocating defenses modern college football has seen since the pair arrived in Tuscaloosa together in 2007. The 2014 Crimson Tide defense won't likely be remembered among them. There have already been too many blown coverages and too many yards piled up by opponents. Yet Smart still likes the way his unit has responded when its margin for error was thinnest.
