I'm back for my semi-annual edition of MSU News & Notes...
- State was unable to complete the sweep vs. Florida as they won Game 3 on Sunday, 8-3. The Gators had an 8-run 5th inning that sealed the deal. Jacob Lindgren was able to start the game and he pitched four scoreless before getting into trouble in the 5th. He left the game with the bases loaded and no out when he twisted his ankle trying to field a bunt. Myles Gentry came in and gave up a 3-run triple and it continued to unravel from there.
This is the THIRD time John Cohen has put freshman Myles Gentry in a SEC game at a critical point and it has backfired and eventually decided the game. You have to wonder when he will start going with a more experienced hand in those situations.
- MSU had a football scrimmage on Saturday at Davis Wade, here is a recap of the action.
I'm not sure if FWtCT was somehow made a corporate sponsor of the ladies' disc golf team or they just used a unique way of alerting us - but congrats! I played a little disc golf back in my day; we usually went drove over to Lake Lowndes in Columbus back when gas was under $2 a gallon and spent some Friday afternoons playing. Pretty fun game. I know right before I graduated they put a course on campus, played it once, lost a disc or two...and I think that was the end of my playing days.
This is pretty interesting if you're into SEC football history - Team Speed Kills maps out series matchups between programs.
Have a great week!
