Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily Mississippi State podcast with SEC Country’s Brandon Walker.
Mississippi State’s spring game is in the books, and the Bulldogs’ new-look defense stole the show. First-year defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has already put his stamp on the MSU defense, resulting in an afternoon filled with sacks, interceptions and defensive touchdowns. But how did MSU’s offense look? With several starters out, quarterback Nick Fitzgerald and the offense showed flashes, but also struggled. Overall, the day was a success for MSU fans looking for a defense again, and host Brandon Walker breaks down the performance from every angle on today’s podcast.
Elsewhere, MSU’s baseball team continues a remarkable run in conference play, withstanding a rash of injuries to emerge from Super Bulldog Weekend tied for the lead atop the SEC. The Bulldogs reached that mark by taking two of three games from Kentucky over the weekend. The series included a historic run from first baseman Brent Rooker, who continues his spectacular season.
Today’s podcast focuses on all of this plus more, as Brandon took live questions from a Facebook audience.
