    Episode 73: Mississippi State basketball bounces back with big wins

    Episode 73: Mississippi State basketball bounces back with big wins

    After tough losses to Kentucky at home for both the Men's and Women's basketball teams, a good week was needed for both programs. And both of them came through this week. The Mississippi State Basketball Men's team had an impressive win over 12th ranked Missouri on Tuesday, and they followed it up with a three point win over the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday.

    The Women's team was able to get two wins of their own. They beat the Florida Gators on Thursday night, and they kept their winning streak against the Ole Miss Rebels alive with a four point victory on Sunday. Host Justin Strawn breaks down a successful week for both Mississippi State basketball teams, and he looks a little bit at the recruiting news that broke on Sunday afternoon as well.

    Episode 76: Recapping the 2020 Mississippi State Football Season

    Episode 76: Recapping the 2020 Mississippi State Football Season

    The 2020 Mississippi State football season has come to a close with a 28-26 Bulldog win in the Armed Forces Bowl. It was a bumpy ride for the most part in 2020, but the Bulldogs finished with some positive momentum and will have some things to build upon when the 2021 season kicks off later this year, and Host Justin Strawn weighs in on how it might impact the Bulldogs in the future.

    While there were plenty of positive things to look at, there was also an ugly fight to end the Armed Forces Bowl.  While it was a bad look at the time, Justin explains why Bulldog fans shouldn't get too worked up over people taking shots at the Mississippi State football program because of it.

    To end the show, Justin examines how the basketball teams fared and what they might have to look forward in the coming weeks as the 2020-21 season gets full swing into SEC play.

    How will changing the flag impact Mississippi State?

    How will changing the flag impact Mississippi State?

    The Mississippi State Legislature has voted to change the flag, and after a few more formalities take place, the Flag of 1894 will no longer represent the state. It was a historic day for Mississippi, and one that will impact Mississippi State athletics, but it might not have happened had it not been for the efforts of one Mississippi State athlete.

    There are other things impacting Mississippi State athletics, most particularly the coronavirus is spiking. This could have a huge impact on what football looks like this fall, or if there will even be football at all. Plus, there was some big recruiting news for the football team on Saturday at a much needed positon. Host Justin Strawn breaks it all down on the newest episode of The Starkville State of Mind Podcast!
