Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily Mississippi State podcast with SEC Country’s Brandon Walker.
Tonight is the night. Mississippi State will be tasked with the impossible when it meets No. 1 UConn in the Final Four. A strong contingent of Mississippi State fans have joined the team in Dallas, where the Bulldogs will look to avenge a 98-38 loss from the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Win or lose, though, this MSU team is built to last.
With a strong nucleus of players returning — including Victoria Vivians, Morgan William and Teaira McCowan — MSU is built for the long haul, meaning Friday night’s tussle with UConn will only be the beginning of Vic Schaefer’s legacy at MSU.
Elsewhere, host Brandon Walker examines MSU’s quarterback situation ahead of next week’s spring football game and reflects on MSU baseball’s 4-3 road win at Ole Miss from Thursday night.
