New Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead continues to add to his staff, while Ole Miss must deal with the loss of its former starting quarterback.
Those are just two of the topics discussed on this week’s episode. Logan looks at the hires Moorhead has made thus far (1:08). The former Penn State offensive coordinator recently added former Ole Miss player Marcus Johnson and also brought in Mark Hudspeth, who was an MSU assistant earlier in his career. Those two bring valuable recruiting connections in Mississippi and across the South.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs continue bowl game preparations (11:39).
Ole Miss, as expected, lost quarterback Shea Patterson, who is transferring to Michigan (6:14). And while it’s a big loss, it’s eased a good bit by the way Jordan Ta’amu played this season after Patterson was injured.
There’s also plenty of basketball talk. The Ole Miss women are on a roll, having won seven in a row (14:18). The Rebels have been winning despite two key players being out with injuries, and up next is a trip to Oregon on Sunday.
MSU’s women beat Oregon on Wednesday in a top-10 matchup (18:02). The Ducks put up a lot of points, as they tend to do, but the Bulldogs got 35 points from Teaira McCowan and 30 from Victoria Vivians.
On the men’s side, Ole Miss snapped a three-game losing streak (23:17), getting solid play in the post from Bruce Stevens in Wednesday’s win against Sam Houston State. MSU suffered its first loss of the season (26:59), at Cincinnati, despite a double-double from Aric Holman.
