We’re less than a week away from 2021’s edition of Mississippi State controlling the programming at the SEC Network. While there are some really good Mississippi State sporting events that will be broadcast on the SEC Network during that 24 hour period of time, there are some events that should have been included.

We’ve got 10 different pieces of really good Mississippi State content that will be shown during that timeframe and that’s a lot of Mississippi State to sit back and enjoy.

Still, the lineup could have been better.

Let’s take a look at the 10 things that will be shown during the 2021 Mississippi State SEC Network Takeover. The full schedule is below:

Mississippi State’s SEC Network Takeover is set for July 11

That’s a pretty good lineup of events! The Bulldogs are showcasing a wide variety of games from much of its athletic department.

But while that grouping is good, it could certainly be better.

5 events that should have made Mississippi State’s 2021 SEC Network Takeover

Mississippi State’s schedule for the SEC Network Takeover is good, but it could be so much better.

No. 4: Mississippi State softball’s win over Ole Miss in the SEC Tournament

Let’s be honest with ourselves, we all love wins over Ole Miss. It’s always a thrill to see the Bulldogs beat the Rebels, regardless of sport.

I personally thoroughly enjoy college softball, so this win was definitely great to see, especially when considering that it was a good amount of revenge for the series that Ole Miss swept State in during the regular season.

Which is why I think this would be a more natural fit in the SEC Network Takeover for the Mississippi State Bulldogs than one of MSU’s wins over South Carolina. Beating the Gamecocks is fun and all, but knocking the Ole Miss Rebels down in the SEC Tournament has more meaning.

Heck, State’s win over Texas A&M would’ve also been a great choice considering it was Samantha Ricketts’ first SEC win.
