Gregg Ellis/Mississippi State
By Gregg Ellis

As I mentioned on Friday, we're changing blog hosts. As of now, I will no longer be blogging here. Starting with comments from Sylvester Croom's teleconference today, I'll be blogging on the new site.

Here's the new address for you to bookmar . . .

Michael Henig's surgery on his right hand this morning went OK, according to MSU media relations direction, Mike Nemeth.

Henig fractured his hand on a third-down passing play on State's first drive against Auburn.

He could be out anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks, likely between the 3-4 week category.

What a win. Where do you rank this among Croom's wins? What were you plays of the game. And congrats to those who correctly picked a State victory.

Hey, it's a Riddell sighting [Sep. 15th, 2007|01:37 pm]

By Gregg Ellis

After the Bulldogs went 3-and-out to start the second half, Josh Riddell, a JUCO transfer, just entered the game.

He was suspended against LSU and didn't play at Tulane. Wesley Carroll, who replaced Michael Henig when he left with a broken bone in his throwing hand, is currently 3-of-10 passing 16 yards.

Threed quarters are now in the books, and it's still Auburn 14, MSU 13.

Auburn takes lead into the half [Sep. 15th, 2007|01:00 pm]

Quarterback Kodie Burns came off the bench to replace Brandon Cox after his second intereption and sparked Auburn to two drives for touchdowns. Burns' sneak from the 1 with 30 seconds left gave the Tigers the 14-13 advantage. State did lead 13-0 with 12:27 to play in the second quarter following a 30-yard field goal by Adam Carlson, his second of the game.

Here are some halftime stats

Total offense
MSU 134, Auburn 146.

Anthony Dixon has 65 yards on 16 carries, while Burns has 58 yards on 14 carries.

Henig out [Sep. 15th, 2007|11:57 am]

Mississippi State junior quarterback Michael Henig has left the game with a broken bone in his throwing hand and will not return. True freshman Wesley Carroll has replaced him.

Still, after the first quarter, MSU holds a 10-0 advantage. Yes. That's right. 10-0.

Adam Carlson has a 32-yard field goal, while Derek Pegues returned an interception 20 yards for a score. It was his third-career pick returned for a score.

Here are some interesting stats.

MSU has 105 total yards of offense, while Auburn has 45. Anthony Dixon has rushed 49 yards. With Henig out, I expect to see the Dogs run 9 out of 10 times, if not more.

An absolutely perfect day for college fans [Sep. 15th, 2007|10:46 am]
Gregg Ellis/Mississippi State
By Gregg Ellis

If you like college football, you couldn't ask for a better day to be a game here on the Plains. Temperatures at Jorand-Hare are currently in the upper 70s, there's a slight breeze and not clouds in sight.

There's not much news to report, except that defensive back Jasper O'Quinn won't play due to an injury. As for who is the backup quarterback, there's not an answer. I guess we'll when either Wesley Carroll or Josh Riddell enters the game, if that happens.

The Bulldogs are decked out in all white uniforms today, while the Tigers are wearng their traditional home blue jerseys.

On to other things, as we are about 10 minutes from kickoff . . .

OK. I read your predictions. Very interersting. So, with that said, it's time for mine . . .

Auburn 17, Mississippi State 7.

O'Neal happy, and more importantly, healthy [Sep. 14th, 2007|08:06 am]

Gabe O'Neal has certainly endured his share of adversity since coming to Mississippi State. After three years of injuries, he now appears to be finally healthy for his senior season.

He's a great interview and quite the funny person, too. Here's his story, SEC Gets Message: O'Neal Ready To Go.

Foglesong on the mound [Sep. 13th, 2007|01:13 pm]
Gregg Ellis/Mississippi State
By Gregg Ellis

I had a 15-minute interview with MSU president Doc Foglesong about everything from the AD search to riding motorcycles.

And it was during that time he told me he'll be in Cleveland on Friday for the Indians' game against Kansas City.

Not just as a fan, though. He'll throw out the first pitch.

"Bob Feller and I are good friends, and he set this up for me," said Foglesong, who's been in Washington, D.C., all week. "I just hope I don't embarrass myself."

He added that he spent time out at Dudy Noble Field last week practicing with some of the players.

Man, this guy lives life to the fullest.
