SEC Media Days Recap: Mississippi State

By on July 22nd, 2013

When Dan Mullen left the coaching staff at the University of Florida to become the head coach of the football team at Mississippi State, he was taking over a team coming off a four-win season.

He has since returned the Bulldogs to a competitive level in the Southeastern Conference. His team finished 8-5 last season, but were 4-4 against teams in the SEC.

Mullen brought three of his players to the 2013 SEC Media Days last Wednesday including senior quarterback Tyler Russell.

Mullen says Russell will have a big impact on the season.

Mullen says he wants to continue pushing the Bulldogs toward a championship level.

Mullen says with additions to Davis Wade Stadium and the success his team has had, he thinks the fans will be excited about their team.

This off-season has carried a bitter taste with it after the Bulldogs lost to Northwestern in the Gator Bowl on January 1.

Mullen says that loss has given them a spark this summer.

Mississippi State will open up this season at home against Oklahoma State August 31.
