Once again, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are going back to Omaha. The Bulldogs are consistent visitors to the College World Series and this will be the 12th trip to Omaha in program history.

It’s also the third straight trip for the Mississippi State baseball team, the longest CWS streak in the country at the moment. Here’s to hoping that this streak continues on next year as well.

As I wrote last night shortly after the game ended:

“For the third time in as many NCAA Baseball Tournaments, the Mississippi State Bulldogs have made it to the College World Series. Mississippi State is headed back to Omaha after beating the Notre Dame Fighting in three games in the Starkville Super Regional.”

Ethan Lee, Mississippi State outlasts Notre Dame, is headed back to the College World Series

And after the game, a ton of fans and former players started pouring out their support for the Bulldogs on social media. There was no shortage of praise being heaped in the direction of this team, which is now aiming to win a national title for the first time in program history.

Check out the reactions from several former Mississippi State baseball players below:


Austin Sexton made a fascinating point last night when he made sure that Mississippi State’s head coach got the credit he deserved. In just his second full season with the Bulldogs, Chris Lemonis is taking Mississippi State to Omaha for the second time.

Of course, Lemonis inherited a pretty great program, but still. Sexton makes a great point that more people need to consider. Lemonis is doing a great job with the Bulldogs. Many were critical of him after MSU’s display in the SEC Tournament.

But at this point, who cares what happens in Hoover?

Now, back to the show:

And of course, Cody Brown has a pretty solid point. Only a few things in life are certain:


A couple of former Mississippi State baseball players are apparently headed up to Omaha:

And, to nobody’s surprise, there’s no shortage of Bulldogs rooting for this team to go out and win it all in Omaha.


Mississippi State will head up to Omaha and get settled in for a few days. The Bulldogs will return to action when they face off against the University of Texas Longhorns on Sunday. This will be the second time MSU has faced UT this season.
