Mississippi State’s baseball team just keeps finding ways to win. The Bulldogs won four games over the course of two days, including a pair of victories against Southern Miss, to win the NCAA Hattiesburg Regional.
On this episode, Logan recaps the Bulldogs’ big weekend (4:38), which sends them into a Super Regional matchup with LSU. The Tigers swept State at the end of the regular season and boast a top-notch pitching staff.
But MSU has players like Brent Rooker, who went quiet for a bit in Hattiesburg before waking up with a pair of home runs and a go-ahead hit on Monday.
The big news out of Oxford this week isn’t as positive, as the school released its response to 21 violations the NCAA says occurred within the football program (11:30). Ole Miss is standing behind coach Hugh Freeze, and in the 125-page response it tried to poke holes in testimony of a former recruit regarding alleged booster payments.
The NCAA has 60 days to respond, and so that will probably come in late July. Until then, Freeze will have to deal with the questions that will inevitably come at SEC Media Days in a few weeks.
