Well, I think it’s pretty obvious that Ben Lockridge, our Web reporter, is back.

There are five new videos posted on Star Video — all of which focus on the school bond. Ben is currently working to get a video from a morning radio debate on the Web. The video will include a behind-the-scenes look at the morning radio debate on WMOX about the school bond.

I understand he has footage of some things that happened after the mics were turned off.

I can’t wait to see that.

College basketball ramblings

How about those Dogs and Lady Rebels?

The Hump was rocking last night. It was the rowdiest crowd I’ve seen in a few years — possibly the best crowd since the “White Out” Kentucky game a few years back. The game was never really close. It felt like a 30-point blowout. But thanks to a hot-shooting guard (who hit 9 of 13 threes) FSU remained within reach.

The crowd was deafening. State, while not shooting the ball particularly well, dominated with a swarming man-to-man defense and clutch rebounding.

I’m still considering making the trip to NYC to watch the Dogs play. If I do, I’ll post a few blogs from the Big Apple.

And I must say I am extremely happy for the Lady Rebels thumping the defending national champions, Maryland, last night to advance to the Sweet 16 of the WNCAA Tourney.

Van Chancellor may have a run for his money in Ole Miss women’s basketball lore if Carol Ross keeps this up.

Mayor’s news conference

Don’t forget to post your suggestions to our “Ask the mayor” section. The news conference is set for today — even though the mayor himself is not expected to attend (Ken Storms in his absence). Ben and Georgia Frye will be there to ask questions (including one from a reader). Ben should have the video up by 4 p.m.
