Mississippi State alum Preston Smith is fired up after former school beats Connecticut

Mississippi State alum Preston Smith is fired up after former school beats Connecticut

As a Redskin, Preston Smith is used to hearing "Hail to the Redskins." But after Friday night's Final Four game between Mississippi State and Connecticut, the former Bulldog will be saying (and possibly singing) "Hail State," much like every other MSU alum following their school's magical upset of the Huskies.

Just as the calendar flipped to April 1, guard Morgan William sank a buzzer beater and ended UConn's 111-game winning streak. For those who missed it and had to check the final score instead, it might've felt like an April Fool's joke.

Smith, though, witnessed it and immediately tweeted about it afterward:

Now, Mississippi State will have to refocus and turn their attention to South Carolina, who they play on Sunday night for the national title. And if they are able to pull it off and notch one more victory, you know you'll be hearing from Smith about it.

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

Mic'd up: This is what it sounds like as the Redskins running backs go through drills

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.

Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.

In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.

It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.
