MISSISSIPPI STATE RUMORS

No. 18 Miss State women hold on, beat Ole Miss 64-62

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Morgan William drained a step-back jumper with four seconds to play to snap a tie and give No. 18 Mississippi State the edge it needed to beat Ole Miss 64-62 on Thursday night.

Geoff Collins ready to place his stamp on Florida's defense

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The total transformation takes time. You don't just walk in, change from the colors of the old to the new, and say "let's do it." That's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. Plus, that's not new Gators defensive coordinator Geoff Collins' style. He is known as the "Minister of Mayhem" for crying out loud. It takes time to create mayhem when you...

WATCH: Mississippi State Runs the Perfect Hail Mary Pass Against Georgia Tech

Some folks may wonder what makes a perfect Hail Mary pass other than a throw that makes it to the end zone and a player on the offense actually catching it. Well--if all you do is trust that one of your guys will bring it down when the whole mess of guys in the end zone jumps up for it you are taking a huge gamble.
