Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily podcast about Mississippi State sports with host Brandon Walker.
Entering Ben Howland’s third season as Mississippi State’s basketball coach, the Bulldogs added much-needed muscle to the 2018-19 nonconference schedule by adding mid-major power Dayton for a home-and-home series.
The addition of the Flyers to the nonconference slate is a big step toward building a more respectable schedule as Mississippi State basketball continues its long march back to respectability.
Elsewhere, host Brandon Walker dives into the media’s preseason football picks, the All-SEC teams and projected order of finish. Mississippi State was chosen to finish sixth in the SEC West this season, proving that the Bulldogs do not get the same benefit of the doubt that the media extends to other teams.
