Holiday Weekend Starting Six: A Tradition Like No Other

Dogs down Eagles ... M-Braves begin fifth season tonight ... USM scrimmages on Coast ... Larry tweets ... MSU gets new unis ... Who will be the Master?

College baseball: Mississippi State 7, Southern Miss 6. Ryan Duffy's walk-off homer ends the Eagles' dominance of the Dogs.

Southern League baseball: The M-Braves open the season tonight at the TeePee. Enjoy your rings, fellas. You pitchers might not be in Pearl for long: The Big Braves need some bullpen help.

College football: Southern Miss holds its second scrimmage of spring practice. Quarterback Austin Davis throws for three touchdowns. Unfortunately, Davis will not be facing USM's second-team defense when the season starts.

College football: Do you ever say, "I wonder what Southern Miss football coach Larry Fedora is doing right now?" Now you can find out via Twitter. Really.

College football: Mississippi State will unveil its new uniforms next Wednesday in Starkville. The Bulldogs will wear maroon helmets with new MSU logos. Doctor S just loves uniform talk.

Golf: Will it be Tiger vs. Phil on Sunday at The Masters? That would be great … unless Mickelson pees in his pants and folds again. And did you know that Woods has been around so long that he's old school?

Doctor S is cutting out early for the holiday weekend. so no Starting Five on Friday. Hope the Easter Bunny comes to see you. See you on Monday.
