The Best In Sports In 7 Days

Doctor S sez: Mississippi State and Mississippi Valley State have scheduled a football game for 2013. The Doctor is not counting the days.

Thursday, Oct. 7
College football, Delta State at Arkansas-Monticello (7 p.m., CSS, 1180 AM/103.3 FM): The Statesmen try to squash the Boll Weevils in a GSC showdown. ... Major League baseball, NL Division Series, Atlanta at San Francisco (8:30 p.m., TBS, 105.9 FM): The Braves are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2005, and they have a good shot at cutting down the Giants.

Friday, Oct. 8
High school football, Callaway vs. Lanier (7 p.m., Newell Field, Jackson): The unbeaten Chargers face the Bulldogs in an old-school JPS grudge match.

Saturday, Oct. 9
College football, Alabama A&M at Jackson State (4 p.m., Memorial Stadium, Jackson, 95.5 FM): This is a huge game for the Tigers. The Bulldogs aren't a "name" rival, so I'll be stunned if 20,000 people show up. ... East Carolina at Southern Miss (6:30 p.m., Hattiesburg, CSS, 105.1 FM): Both of the CUSA East rivals are unbeaten in conference play.

Sunday, Oct. 10
NFL football, New Orleans at Arizona (3 p.m., Ch. 40, 620 AM): Yes, the Cardinals are terrible, but the Saints are not very dominant for a 3-1 team. ... Philadelphia at San Francisco (7:20 p.m., Ch. 3, 930 AM): The Eagles are 2-2 and the 49ers are 0-4. Philly quarterback Michael Vick is expected to miss the game because of a rib injury. That's a doggone shame.

Monday, Oct. 11
NFL football, Minnesota at New York Jets (7:30 p.m., ESPN, 930 AM): Yes, the Jets are good, but this is the third time this season that Gang Green has played on national TV. East Coast bias is alive and well.

Tuesday, Oct. 12
Major League baseball, AL Division Series, New York Yankees at Minnesota (time TBA, TBS, 105.9 FM, if necessary): This best-of-five series may decide who advances to the AL Championship Series.

Wednesday, Oct. 13
Major League baseball, NL Division Series, Atlanta at San Francisco (TBA, TBS, 105.9 FM): If they're tied, this will decide whether Braves manager Bobby Cox gets to postpone retirement.

The Slate is compiled by Doctor S, who thought JFP Publisher Todd Stauffer turned in an amazing performance in "Iron Man 2." Wait. That wasn't him?

And it's Homecoming at Southern Miss! The weather should be just about perfect. Bring a sleeve for after dark. See you at the Rock!

Also, Go Atlanta Braves! And, since the college season has gone to 12 games and everybody plays a I-AA (whatever it's called these days)team at least once per season I'm glad the D-I teams in Mississippi are trying to play the I-AA teams from Mississippi. It's good for Mississippi.

I believe the Pittsburgh Steelers is off this week. Somebody is spared an a__kicking, no doubt. Our quarterback is back and we may not lose again.

I wanted the Vikings to win last night so Brett Favre, a true Mississippi hero, would be able to show the USA and that woman he sent the nekkid pictures to something big. My sources are telling me the lady had a mild interest in him until she saw what he was working with. Some secrets should remain that way!

Whatever, Walt! But what does it say when Detroit has a home win and Dallas doesn't? Geez.

Queen and Golden Eagle, I see the Cowboys, according to the latest Harris Poll, was voted America's team again. I just want to congratulate y'all on your victory. I wish we (Steelers) had a winning team that garnished so much support and recognition. This is such a sweet victory. Had the Steelers been good enough to win this title, I would start a column or blog on the JFP so people could write in and comment on the great football victory. Y'all are sump nother, o say the least. I'm surprised Jerry Jones hasn't added the color red to the uniforms since y'all are so often found to be America's team. How about a red stripe, dot or circle somewhere in the chest area, perhaps on the left side of the chest to celebrate and mark the territory. Congratulations again.

Anyone said it yet, how bout them Cowboys? They play the Giant next week, so let me say ahead of time, how bout them cowboys? Who in the hell voted and made them America's team again. America team might not win another game this year. They're sorrier than last year's Oakland Raiders or the LA Clippers of the past 20 years.
