A year ago Mississippi State lost 13 games in a row in Southeastern Conference play.
After Thursday night's four-point loss to Tennessee at home, the Bulldogs pushed this season's high losing skid to 10 games.
Most coaches may be very concerned with a losing streak in year two, but second-year Bulldog head coach Rick Ray isn't.
"I would really be concerned if I saw on a day-to-day in practice, our guys not playing hard, not competing and not giving effort in a game like this," Ray said after the loss to the Volunteers. "When you see guys continually giving effort in practice, trying to follow the gameplan and not fighting you on the effort part, there's no need to be concerned."
The Bulldogs (13-15, 3-12) look to get back in the win column today when they travel to Columbia, Mo. to take on the Missouri Tigers (19-9, 7-8).
