Another week, another SEC future foe meets our bullets to see what we might be up against. Today, the Mississippi State Bulldogs get run through. As always, we will review the last three years of records for each of the sports which Mizzou will be bringing to the SEC starting in July, as well as bump it up against what Mizzou did in the same sports (in both bold and italics for your viewing pleasure). Let's get to it, starting with the fall sports (season listed is year in which the sport completed so fall sports will be a calendar year behind):

Summary:

Well, every conference has to have some outfits like this one. Not everyone can win I guess. MSU appears to have some solid history with their baseball program, and I do know Jay Miller got MSU to some NCAA's before falling off and not being renewed. Beyond that though, not much else to say. I wish I could figure out how the track thing works, and yikes for golf is all I can say there. But I also believe they have some decent expansion going on (at least on the football side, if not all sports), so perhaps they are starting to trend upwards.
