Alas.

I think this season was a complete success. But, losing 2 games by a total of 4 points - and losing very late in the game both times - does stick in my craw a bit. We really should have been able to pull one of those out.

Oh well. Wait until next year.

Joe Moorehead has emerged as a leading candidate for the MSU job.

We are going to lose him eventually. So wish the best for him. Although, he's a north-east guy so not sure how appealing Mississippi is to him.

Main worry for me is that his departure doesn't cost us commits. Hopefully he doesnt land his HC gig until after the early signing period.

I hope he gives us one more year, but we'll see. whenever he decides to move on, I wish him the best of luck. And, if it doesn't work out, I hope Franklin grabs him back.

I wouldn't say he is a leading candidate. He's a candidate. There are lots. Many with lots of experience and contacts in SEC land.

It sounds right now that Mississippi State wants someone with ties to the south, and Moorehead doesn't have those. That can all change, but right now, doesn't sound like he would be considered a leading candidate.

Fordham is in the south Bronx. Does that count?

(it actually isn't, but it's close enough).

I've been through Starkville. It's the most appropriately named town in the United States.

Well crap. I am a bit surprised he'd take that job. If true best of luck and thanks for what you did.
