The weekend that is/was.......

It is currently just after 2 pm on Sunday afternoon and we (DKW & I) will be packing to go back home very shortly.  We came to Hattiesburg to see MSU open their season with Southern Miss in a very late starting (9 pm) TV game.  There were a lot of first game jitters and mistakes but State pulled away late to win by 18 (34-16).  Its said that the most improvement that a team will make occurs between games 1 and 2.  Lets hope so, because MSU will be at home next week hosting LSU.  Because rain and lightning forced the cancellation of LSU's game with McNeese State yesterday they will only play 11 games this year,  with the MSU game being their first.  On the personal side, we had a very nice time visiting and staying with DKW's friends, Teralyn and Andrew.
On Friday past, SHS defeated West Point 16-0 to go 2-1 on the year.  The next game is at home with first time foe, Kipp Collegiate (out of Memphis, TN).  Starkville will be heavily favored and it should be a game in which most, if not all, the players get to see some time on the field.  After the closely contested first 3 games of the year it will be nice to have a bit of a break.
I'll try to write more soon.  Everyone have a great day!
