How’s it going, folks? Mississippi State gets the day off because the Bulldogs beat Virginia the other evening. Now the Cavaliers are in the elimination bracket and will play the Texas Longhorns. The winner gets to move on and play Mississippi State. The loser will be headed home.

Mississippi State news from The Underdog Tribune:


What’s happening elsewhere?


Today’s tunes:

Today we’re listening to a couple different songs.

Let’s start with “Wilder Days” by Morgan Wade. It’s upbeat, energetic, and thoughtful as it paints a story about a couple that is working through some degree of difference in lifestyles (and age) as they fall in love. It’s a great change of pace from some of the other stuff I tend to listen to and it’s fun to listen to while you’re working.


Next we’ve got Charley Crockett and “Wreck Me,” an old-school country tune that fits Crockett’s voice perfectly. The song is mellow and smooth and sad and peaceful. I’m a fan. That said, I’m also a fan of Crockett’s other work as well.

How to visit Omaha for the College World Series: Where to eat?


With the College World Series set to start, NCAA baseball fans from all over the country will be headed to Omaha, Nebraska, to watch the country’s eight best teams play each other with the goal of winning a championship. While it’s often overlooked, Omaha is a city that deserves more credit for everything it has to offer.

I actually had the pleasure of living in Omaha for a couple of years and, despite the bitter winters, I thoroughly enjoyed my time living in the Midwest.

Omaha is a wonderful city with a great food scene, plenty of bars (especially sports bars), and a solid amount of nightlife.

There’s always something happening somewhere in town and, thanks to the size and layout of the city, it’s pretty easy to get just about anywhere you need within 20 to 30 minutes.


If you’ve got the opportunity to go see the College World Series, you should definitely take it.

And if you’ll be in Omaha, it’s worth getting a few ideas on what to do while you’re there. That’s what this guide is for, to help you get some ideas on what to do during your trip to see your team in the CWS.
