Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily podcast about Mississippi State sports with host Brandon Walker.
It’s the question Mississippi State fans have been asking all winter: Will Nick Fitzgerald be healthy in time for the 2018 football season? Early returns are good. On Wednesday, Fitzgerald posted a video that showed him running for the first time since his terrible ankle injury in the 2017 Egg Bowl. If Fitzgerald can get back to full health, MSU’s running game should be even better in 2018. More Cowbell host Brandon Walker takes a look at the running game.
In men’s basketball, MSU will take the court in St. Louis on Thursday night as a 1 1/2-point favorite over LSU, a number that is surprising in the wake of LSU’s 20-point victory over MSU in the regular-season finale. Clearly, Vegas likes the Bulldogs and Walker takes a look at why.
