This week's 12th Man Support Rally will begin at 1:00 p.m. this Friday, October 3, 2003, outside the Shira Fieldhouse Sports Complex.
The plan for this week: Begin arriving outside the Shira Fieldhouse at 1:00 p.m. to show support for the Mississippi State Football program. The team will begin arriving at the Fieldhouse for Friday's practice around
2:00. We will gather in front of the Complex to ring our cowbells and generate positive energy going into the team's final practice. Between 3:00 - 4:00 the team will be in a meeting. At this time the Rally Team will move to the North side of the fieldhouse adjacent to the track. At 4:00 the players will exit the meeting and walk across the track on their way to the practice fields. The team will be able to see and hear the Rally Team and their cowbells. Around 5:00 practice will end and the team will return to the locker room inside the fieldhouse. The Rally Team will move back to the front of the fieldhouse and make noise as the team prepares to board the buses. The team will board the buses around 6:00 p.m. The Rally will end after the buses leave.
Last week was a lot of fun and it was evident that the team enjoyed the positive atmosphere as they got into "game mode". Don't pass up this opportunity to ring your COWBELL!
Please make an effort to attend even if it is for a few minutes or late in the afternoon. If you cannot make it, please post a message on Gene's message board to my attention and I will make sure to ring my Cowbells for you!
See you there Friday!
