║ Schools: Mississippi State
Tags: Arnett Moultrie, MSU, Ricky Hood, Rodney Hood
Renardo Sidney is leaving (good). Arnett Moultrie says he’s leaving, too (bad). Dee Bost has graduated (bad). The presumed replacement at point guard, DeVille Smith, is also leaving (bad). And at least one Mississippi State signee has asked for a release from his scholarship papers (bad).
Rodney Hood — the only starter set to return to the Bulldog roster next season — could also bolt. His father Ricky Hood — himself a former MSU hoopster — says that he wants to see a good coach take over and talk his son into staying.
Either way, The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports that Hood the Elder still believes MSU is a “good job” despite numerous mid-major coaches deciding to stay in their mid-major jobs and make mid-major money despite interest from State:
“Our program is not in shambles as some people make you believe. We’re going to have a difficult year, regardless, like most programs do. It’s going to be a different team.”
Shambles or not, AD Scott Stricklin is helping a lot of guys get raises this spring.
