Mississippi State Bulldogs news: Chris Jans and MSU to face Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The news never ends for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. That’s just kind of how it goes. And so, let’s keep up with keeping up on everything going on in (and around) Starkville. That means we’ve got more headlines to process through.
Staring on the hardwood. Chris Jans and his Mississippi State men’s basketball team are pretty battle-tested so far this season, but they’re about to take on yet another tough foe as they go to New Jersey for a neutral site matchup with Rutgers.
Over in football, we’re still going through everything that pertains to the 2024 Mississippi State football signing class (and we will be for a while).
Mississippi State Bulldogs news: Chris Jans’ MSU basketball team in New Jersey to face Rutgers
Here’s a good bit on what you need to know as the Bulldogs get set to meet up with the Scarlet Knights in the Gotham Classic:
Both Mississippi State and Rutgers bring stifling defenses into this matchup, so it seems unlikely that we’re going to see a ton of scoring here. This matchup more or less features two immovable objects facing off with neither team really having unstoppable forces on offense. How will this play out?
The Bulldogs have really benefitted from how well Josh Hubbard has played. It’s not often that you see a freshman off the bench lead things for the Bulldogs, but that’s exactly the case here and Mississippi State basketball fans are thrilled with how he’s performing.
Mississippi State has already been in several matchups against pretty prominent programs. The Bulldogs have even been involved in several neutral site matchups. So far, Chris Jans and his team have done well. How will they do against Rutgers?
While Clifford Omoruyi is someone that is going to be a force to try and handle, he’s not the only Rutgers basketball player that the Bulldogs need to account for. Here are three players the Mississippi State basketball team will need to be aware of.
Mississippi State Bulldogs news: Still sorting through 2024 Mississippi State football signing class
Look, there’s a lot of news pertaining to the 2024 Mississippi State football signing class. There’s just a lot of content there. And we’re still going through it (and will be for a while). So, here’s more on it:
One thing that I like doing when it comes to working in sports journalism, blogging, journalism in general, etc. and so on and so forth is sharing the perspectives of others. And social media certainly makes it easy to do just that. Here’s how Mississippi State football fans are feeling about Jeff Lebby’s first recruiting class in Starkville.
A ton of folks want to see Jeff Lebby hit the ground running when it comes to this offense next season. But it remains to be seen if that’s going to be the case. It’s a new year with a new coaching staff and a roster that isn’t familiar with his system. Thankfully, Lebby built a coaching staff that is familiar with the veer-and-shoot offense that he wants to run.
Let's listen to something fun! Like NEEDTOBREATHE's collaboration with Drew and Ellie Holcomb.
I'm all in on every possible thing these folks could work together on. I need more music featuring this grouping of talent. Because there's a lot of talent in that room.
