Will The Bulldogs Continue Their Winning Streak Or Will The Lady Vols Ruin It This Sunday?

Have the roles reversed?

46

Let's take a trip down memory lane. In 1974, Pat Summitt was named head coach of the University of Tennessee's women's basketball team. Summitt coached the Lady Vols for 38 years. Summit built up the program to everything she had dreamed of, and she gave it her all for as long as she could before retiring because of her health conditions. During these 38 years, the Lady Vols accomplished major goals with the biggest being eight NCAA national championship wins. Not only did they win eight times, but they also attended the NCAA post-season tournament every year that Summitt was the head coach. The Lady Vols have one undefeated season under their belts, which occurred in 1997-1998. Pat Summitt was a legend, and she made herself known at the University of Tennessee, but is the team any good without her?

Now let's take a look at Mississippi State in the past. Since 1974, women have been dribbling on the courts at Mississippi State. However, Mississippi State's women have never won an NCAA or SEC championship, and the road to success has not been easy or short. In 2012, Vic Schaefer was named head coach of the Bulldog women, and since then, an incredible atmosphere has been created at MSU. The team has two back-to-back Final Four appearances for both the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 seasons, where the teams finished as runner-up each year. During the 2017-2018 season, the Bulldogs had a perfect regular season record and were SEC regular season champions. Schaefer has created an electric atmosphere for his ladies to play basketball in, and fans are realizing how special this is. Could the Bulldogs make a third appearance in the NCAA championship game this year?

Now in the 2018-2019 season, how are the Vols and Bulldogs doing? The Lady Vols have a current overall record of 15-7 with losses consisting of five SEC schools, Stanford, and Notre Dame (2018 national champions). Their SEC conference record, however, is 4-5. The Bulldogs have a current overall record of 21-1, with the single loss being against the current ranked #4 Oregon. MSU remains undefeated in conference play.

On Sunday, February 10, at 1 p.m., the University of Tennessee Lady Vols and the Mississippi State Bulldogs will battle it out at Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, MS. Will the Bulldogs continue their winning streak or will the Lady Vols pull through? Watch and see on ESPN.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.
