Mississippi State has its defensive coordinator. On Sunday, MSU made official Joe Moorhead’s decision to hire former Tennessee
and Penn State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop. The hiring gives MSU a defensive coach that was once one of the profession’s
rising stars, but that was before two tumultuous years in Tennessee. Will this hire work? More Cowbell host Brandon Walker
discusses that question and looks at the rest of Moorhead’s staff on this episode.
Elsewhere, MSU’s men’s basketball team won again Saturday, crushing North Georgia to improve to 8-0 in 2017. Up next for the
Bulldogs will be the toughest test so far, as MSU travels to face Cincinnati on Tuesday night. We take a look at that game
and what it might mean for the Bulldogs.
