Mississippi State and Ole Miss both have their head coaches in place, but that doesn’t mean things are settled at either school.
New MSU coach Joe Moorhead is still putting together his staff (2:40), and he’s doing so while the current coaches prepare the Bulldogs for their bowl game. Moorhead & Co. are also trying to establish relationships on the recruiting trail (8:05), especially in Mississippi.
At Ole Miss, Matt Luke – who recently had the interim tag removed from his title – might be taking a different recruiting strategy (5:32). Two of his 2019 commits are Tupelo High School standouts. Luke is also trying to hold on to current players, some of whom are considering transferring (15:58).
One question Parrish and Logan ponder is whether the Egg Bowl will become a less toxic rivalry with Moorhead and Luke at the center of it now (10:27). Dan Mullen was quick to poke the Rebels and pumped some life back to the rivalry, and then the NCAA investigation and Leo Lewis happened, making it even fiercer.
The guys talk some hoops as well. MSU’s men are undefeated (19:40), and Tyson Carter has a hot hand. Ole Miss suffered a pair of overtime losses last week (23:22) and needs to find some answers in the post.
