Tyler Horka Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 4:37 p.m. UTC Sep 2, 2018 STARKVILLE — There’s a storm brewing in northeast Mississippi. Saturday night, its preliminary ripples reverberated around Davis Wade Stadium. Mississippi State throttled Stephen F. Austin, 63-6, in head coach Joe Moorhead’s debut. The Bulldogs didn’t wait long to start raining down on the Lumberjacks. After a stifling showing by MSU’s defense forced a three-and-out, State’s offense needed just one play to get on the board. Sophomore quarterback Keytaon Thompson flipped a short pass to sophomore running back Kylin Hill, and Hill did the rest. He took it 53 yards to the house. "I got the easy part," Hill said. "Just run." A literal storm descended on the stadium minutes later — a sign of things to come. As the rain got heavier, students in the north end zone grew louder. The players on the Bulldogs’ bench jumped higher. Excitement swelled with seemingly … [Read more...] about Keytaon Thompson ties SEC record in Mississippi State’s 63-6 stomping of Stephen F. Austin
Tyler Horka Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 5:46 p.m. UTC Aug 30, 2018 STARKVILLE – Luke Getsy and Bob Shoop looked tranquil inside the Leo Seal Jr. Football Complex this week. They didn’t reveal game-week jitters concerning Mississippi State’s season opener against Stephen F. Austin on Saturday – probably because they simply don’t have any. Both Getsy and Shoop, MSU’s offensive and defensive coordinator, respectively, feel great about this week’s matchup with the Lumberjacks. Here’s where each coach’s unit stands heading into game day. Getsy’s offense expects to put up points Senior quarterback Nick Fitzgerald will watch from the sideline because of his sudden suspension. That doesn’t mean Getsy will ease into the playbook with sophomore Keytaon Thompson taking the shots. Getsy said the game will be called the same as it would if Fitzgerald was behind center.

Tyler Horka Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 7:55 p.m. UTC Aug 27, 2018 STARKVILLE – The shocking news of senior quarterback Nick Fitzgerald’s suspension dominated the day, but Mississippi State still has a football game to play this coming Saturday against Stephen F. Austin. Head coach Joe Moorhead waited until nearly five minutes into his opening statement to drop the Fitzgerald news.

Austin can’t be overlooked Moorhead coached at Fordham, an FCS school, for four years. On two occasions, Moorhead’s Rams took down FBS opponents. Stephen F.

Austin, the Virginia-born businessman who reluctantly accepted his father’s dying wishes to turn the Mexican-controlled territory into an American colony. While in Texas in the 1820s and 1830s, Austin kept peace with Mexico, recruited white Americans to settle there and helped secure independence for the Republic of Texas. But for his near-mythological status in the state’s lore, Austin had a less exalted side: the defender of slavery who warned that freed slaves would become “vagabonds, a nuisance and a menace.” Over the past year, cities across the United States have taken stock of how many of their buildings, streets and parks … [Read more...] about Stephen F.
