Found July 18, 2012 on Busted Coverage:

We are in the heat of SEC Media Day and already the Twitter world is exploding. As of lunch time, three SEC head coaches were trending worldwide. Yes, worldwide. Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen was one of those coaches. This guy has some serious Bulldogs’ pride! Can’t blame him, but when he is going around saying MSU isn’t far off from a BCS title and that Starkville is the best college town in the country, Twitter draws the line.

While Mullen was fielding questions from the media, he made a couple of interesting statements. He went on record saying that Starkville, “”might be the best college town in the country.” Yeah? Of course SEC bros lost their goddamn minds. He continued to stay on a roll, saying that Mississippi State is “not very far off from a national title.”

BOOM! It was on.

"More Relaxed" Mullen For 2012 Media Days

It’s a packed Wednesday morning schedule for Dan Mullen, with his every minute from 8:30 to just after 11:00 scripted for him. Still before starting his SEC Media Days gauntlet, the Mississippi State head coach gave the usual Bulldog beat suspects a few minutes…beginning with some, umm, encouraging words for the locals.
