    I'm glad @ltraz clarified. I too thought that was aimed at you and thought I wonder what that pissing contest is about.

      You realize they get the same SEC Network money as we do, right?

      But they actually spend their football money on football, instead of gymnastics and badminton.

        They supposedly have nice facilities.

        That said, Mississippi does not have near the money Florida has. Florida...the State...does not like to spend it.

          Stop being a baby.

          I thought one of your primary complaints about Strickland was that he focused too much on baseball at MSU? I’m sure they’re still dropping coin on those projects.

            No, Donkey just loves to complain. No one will ever be good enough.

              One of the keys to being a message board hero is a very short memory of the things you have put in writing previously. Not the Donkey specifically, but yes this time specifically.

                Pirate is a great hire for MSU, they know they can't and will never truly compete unless the rest of the west is in a down year. So get a guy who puts up a fun offense to watch with marginal talent and kills press conferences. They are going to get their money's worth.

                  I was hoping this from Kerwin Bell..Wide open offense that is fun to watch. I was hoping he'd go to FAU but no.

                  I think Vandy will be next...coaching change.

                  Think his offense in USF is gonna hurt his chances.

                    Big mistake...the discipline was out of control...I thought more of Strong.

                    I bet Taggart ruins FAU.

                    Kerwin needs a chance. He did awesome at Valdasta. A school like FIU, SoAL, LATech...needs to give him a shot.

                    Or a OC at a larger school.

                    I think his best bet will be as an OC, but he isn't so young. The big opportunity probably has past him by.

                      You are spot on.

                      I can relate...he chose family over career...I gotta respect a man for that

                          Yes & no.

                          They have a nice stadium (half bowl) thanks to the increase in season ticket sales compliments of Mullen, but still need to update half of the stadium. The visitors side still has mens bathrooms that require people to piss into a concrete gutter on the floor against the wall.

                            They have the best baseball facilities of all SEC schools. Hands down. I’ve been in MLB parks that pale to the new one in Starkville.

                              Vandy has to be careful as they’re a very tough sell to coaches since there’s no athletic department running things.

                                I don't really remember complaining about Starkville having great baseball facilities. in fact I'm not certain that I've ever known nor cared to know about Starkville anything.

                                I do remember saying it seems like we've got baseball softball and everybody else represented in the building at the athletic department.

                                The one football player in the building was a fccking punter in the MAC (Curtis Head) and he is in an inconsequential position, raising money.

                                it doesn't surprise me in the slightest that Starkville has superior baseball facilities and shttty football facilities. it doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

                                At some point we are going to overthrow those azzholes but I think the damage is already done.

                                So I'm NOT crazy or approaching dementia? After the clarification, I thought maybe I was overlooking the obvious.
