Media Days: MISSISSIPPI STATE

OK. On to the next team ...


MISSISSIPPI STATE
The coach is Dan Mullen.

  • He opened by telling everyone they had 10 seconds to ring their cowbells. Crickets.

  • He said Auburn has "a ton of talent."

  • He refers to Ole Miss as "the school up north."

  • "Our guys believe in how we played last year. They now believe they can beat any team in this league. We have to bring that drive every week and win those games."

  • On how long it'll take to get MSU to Atlanta: "This December. That's the plan. I don't show up on Sunday saying we're not going to win this one; let's prepare for another one."

  • He said MSU has crossed at least one player off its recruiting list because of things recruits have posted/said on their Facebook pages.

  • On if his spread offense hurts kids' NFL opportunities ... as Nick Saban implied: "I've had a lot more first-round draft picks than he has. It does develop players to get there (the NFL). I also coached the NFL Rookie of the Year last year ... in Percy Harvin."

  • He supports legislation that players shouldn't be allowed to receive offers until after their junior year ends.

  • On stadium expansion in Starkville: "The biggest part for us is making sure we have enough fans to fill the stadium. It would show a lot of our local players than they don't have to leave to play big-time college football. That would be something for us."

  • On Chris Relf, G.W. Carver graduate: ``Before, when I got there, Chris thought he'd just show up when the meetings start and play football and go home. The last offseason, we had to push Chris. Your quarterback position isn't the one you should have to push as a coach. I couldn't tell you one time this offseason where I had to tell him -- you have to pick it up."

  • On recruiting against Ole Miss: "It's a tough battle. One of the big things for me and our staff is that we have to get the best players in Mississippi to come play for us. Ten years from now, it's still going to be tough."

  • Why call it The School Up North?: "It adds to the rivalry a little bit. It means an awful lot to people in the state of Mississippi. That is a very, very important game to the Mississippi State fan base and alums and fans everywhere."

  • That's a wrap.

If the agents are pimps then did Saban just call one of his players a prostitute?

Just asking.

Mr. Mullen better stick with X's and O's as humor doesn't appear to be his forte'.

Maybe he should've opened up with a line from Christopher Walken in the SNL "More Cowbell" skit. At least then maybe someone in the room would have at least snickered because they got the joke.

"Guess what?? I got a fever. And the only prescription is more cowbell."

2:53 PM  
Blogger Aubie said...

So sabear is admitting to telling recruits that they won't play in the nfl if they play for a "spread" team?

2:54 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Jet: Saban.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

chip chip, Les Miles deserves the front page quote on the HCDBOTN.

2:56 PM  
Blogger War Eagle Girl said...

Les Miles sounds like he is on drugs....guess they don't pay the coach to speak coherently

2:58 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Jet, you mean like the kind that floats in swimming pools? We actually outsource those.

2:58 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

JGT, did you wear your KFC bucket to Media Days?

2:59 PM  
Blogger digger4au said...

DANG when you come to the party late all you can do is read and shut up.




Paint me SHUT UPPED.

3:13 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

Jay G, thanks.

3:17 PM  
Blogger Gov. Jet said...

If Les would have just said "such as" or "The Louisiana," I would have wet myself. But I held on, barely.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

WEG - I wouldn't count on it being cool.


That reminds me. I didn't check actual opening game day temps for the past 20 years, but I can say that the 2 times the Sept 4 high temp has been below 84 in the past 20 years, AU has gone undefeated.

So yes, I hope it is very cool... but I'm not willing to bet on it since the avg has been closer to 90.
