STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Got to give Mississippi State fans props on these cowbells. Oh my gosh are they so loud. My ears will bleed tonight. I think everyone in the stadium has a cowbell.
There isn't much to Starkville, Miss., but the university is gorgeous. Of course, pretty much every campus I've been to in Mississippi has been nice: State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss.
As for Davis Wade Stadium, the jumbotron is enormous. Apparently it's the largest in the Southeastern Conference. The game's official line-up cards: They tell us that "Maruc" Gilbert and "Ahmed" Black are starting for the Florida Gators today. (Pretty sure Marcus Gilbert and Ahmad Black are here as well.)
--Will Hill is listed as tonight's starter at free safety. Major Wright is the back up.
--This place is sold out and rocking pretty good. About 55,000 fans just joined in together to sing "Who Let the Dogs Out." That's a first for me.
