I’m courtside for tonight’s SEC-Big 12 Challenge against TCU. Mississippi State wide receiver De’Runnya Wilson was with the team during pre-game shoot around but not dressed out obviously. I also saw IJ Ready warming up as well. We talked with baseball coach John Cohen prior to tonight’s game as well and I’ll have a story in the Daily Journal recapping fall baseball practice this weekend. Remember that tonight’s game will be televised on ESPNU.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
