We're Proud of You, Fletcher!


Today is a great day to live vicariously through Fletcher Cox. He will be in New York City tonight for the 1st round of the NFL Draft, and he is predicted by many to be a top 10 pick.

I’ll go ahead and say congratulations to him and his family on the millions of dollars he is about to make. And I hope Mr. Cox has a long career in the NFL with many appearances on TV telling folks where he went to college.

Scott Stricklin outfitted Fletcher with a cowbell for tonight’s festivities. A chrome one was requested, but I guess we’ll have to wait until tonight to find out if that is what he’ll be ringing. And I hope he is ringing!

I also hope, when his name is called, Roger Goodell says “Mississippi State” and not “Mississippi”. Go get ‘em Fletcher, Hail State!
