All things Mississippi State University are looking better than they have in years. Enrollment is steadily increasing, donations are higher than ever and a $75 million stadium expansion project was announced Wednesday.
But the editors at Southern Living Magazine decided the Bulldogs deserved recognition for something else, something natives of The Junction will be very proud of: their tailgating.
On newsstands now, the magazine features MSU and 19 other schools, including, of course, the University of Mississippi, as the best tail-gating destinations in the South.
The magazine will also release a cookbook on August 21 in conjunction with the issue that includes some favorite recipes among Bulldog fans and advice on where to go and what to do in Starkville.
Any kind of ranking associated with football gets a lot of attention in the South, something Rebecca Gordon, Southern Living test kitchen director based in Birmingham, said she knows all too well.
"We kind of knew it could cause a little bit of a controversy to name 20 schools because of course everyone does feel like their school should be on the list," she said. "It is quite the mix here at the office, and I am probably the ringleader of the smack talk."
The magazine's editors selected the 20 schools based on four categories: most spirited, traditions, powerhouses and trend-setters.
MSU was selected for its school its school spirit. Ole Miss was noted in the trend-setter category.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt was upset with his team's execution in its second scrimmage of the preseason.
Richt said his quarterbacks fumbled ''every time they got touched'' in Wednesday session. Richt says overall the Bulldogs played ''pretty good'' but he says that would only translate to eight or nine wins.
Starter Aaron Murray completed 8 of 14 passes for 158 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Hutson Mason completed 8 of 18 passes for 67 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
Chris Conley had four catches for 114 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown.
Freshmen tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall were productive. Gurley ran for 87 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries. Marshall had five carries for 62 yards.
Jay Prosch breaks AU weight room power clean record
with a lift of 380 pds x 2 reps...
The Auburn weight room legend was named to Bruce Feldman’s annual Freak list this year for breaking Auburn’s power clean record of 371 with a power-clean double at 380.
That might actually be enough to impress McKayla Maroney. However Clint Moseley, far right, is not impressed.

Auburn unveils plan for replacing Toomer's oaks
AUBURN — Its landmark oaks all but dead 18 months after a University of Alabama fan was arrested on charges of poisoning them, Auburn University has laid out a plan for replacing the trees at Toomer's Corner and said work could begin as early as March.
A report issued by the school said bare branches lacking leaves will continue to die, leaving the two trees "aesthetically dead if not actually dead."
"The long-term outlook for the trees is not good," the report added.
The study, released Friday after experts assessed the trees' health following a recent pruning, said a preservation committee will make a report to the university's president soon on whether to continue trying to save the trees or replace them. The replacement process wouldn't begin for six months at the earliest, and it could be as far as 18 months away.
For now, fans will be able to continue the Auburn tradition of rolling the trees with toilet paper after big football victories. But that could change temporarily if more big branches die and have to be removed as a safety precaution, the report said.
The trees will likely be replaced with overcup oaks, a type of slow-growing white oak, said the report.
Work could begin as early as mid-March if officials decide to replace the poisoned trees with nursery-grown oaks; the process could extend to 18 months if officials decide to use larger oaks transplanted from the landscape.
Alabama fan Harvey Updyke is charged with poisoning the trees with a potent herbicide during Auburn's national championship run in the 2010 football season, which included a 28-27 win over the archrival Crimson Tide.
Updyke has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to charges that include criminal mischief and desecrating a venerable object. Defense attorneys have asked a judge to move Updyke's trial to another location, citing extensive publicity in and around Auburn.
If held as scheduled, the trial would begin on Oct. 1, or between Auburn home games against Southeastern Conference rivals LSU and Arkansas.
