The Mississippi Ethics Commission filed a preliminary report and recommendation stating the city of Starkville violated three sections of state code in failing to keep minutes for public meetings, provide proper notice of meetings and strictly comply with the Open Meetings Act.
Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen has seen the best the Arkansas Razorbacks had to offer the last three years.
Mullen's Bulldogs took a couple of beatings by the Hogs in Little Rock, 42-21 in 2009 and 44-17 last season, and lost a 38-31 double overtime decision at home in 2010.
It's all for the good of Starkville High School.
At times when Stanley Higgins scores a touchdown for the Yellowjackets and there's a camera in front of him, he forms an "s" shape with his hands.
That's Higgins' way of saying that it's not about him, but all about Starkville.
It doesn't matter if he's playing fullback, h-back or tight end, Higgins wants to produce for the Jackets.
It was a bittersweet win for the Mississippi State men's basketball team Tuesday night.
The Bulldogs (1-1) cruised to head coach Rick Ray's first victory with a 78-58 decision over Florida Atlantic (0-2) at Humphrey Coliseum, but junior guard Jalen Steele was injured in the process.
Steele crashed to the floor hard and hit his head with 10:37 remaining in the first half.
It's going to be a struggle on most nights for the Mississippi State Bulldogs to win basketball games this season.
That's why picking up a victory like Tuesday night was so important.
In their home opener at Humphrey Coliseum, the Bulldogs did enough firepower to defeat the Florida Atlantic Owls 78-58.
Both Starkville High School teams pulled off victories over Columbus in Tuesday night action at the Beehive.
The Yellowjackets pulled off a thrilling 48-46 victory over the Falcons, while the Lady Yellowjackets won their contest 79-65.
