Pondering a reversal of fortune for MSU
Greg Giddings was listening on the radio Monday night when Rashad Austin swished a pair of free throws to give Midwestern State a 78-76 win over Northeastern State. The former MSU player and coach said he rarely looks backward.
“My wife hates that I seemingly refuse to reminisce,” Giddings told me. “That being said, I can still obsess about that game.”
“That game” also came to my mind when the final seconds ticked off the D.L. Ligon scoreboard on Monday. What if Derek Cline’s 28-foot prayer had bounced off the rim back then like Dominique Gaines’ shot just did? That 2003 loss would not have haunted Giddings these past seven years.
That game in Tahlequah turned out to be his last as MSU’s head coach.
Javelinas pick up two commitments. Josh Schneider (QB LaGrange) has committed to Texas A&M-Kingsville. Josh picked the Javelinas over Tarleton State, Eastern New Mexico, UTSA, SFA and Lamar. Also, Payne Neesen (OL Tuloso Midway) has also indicated that he will sign his letter of intent next Wednesday.
Jake Sims (Ath Corpus Christi Carroll) will be heading to Texas State. Midwestern State and Abilene Christian were two LSC schools that were recruiting him.
