The Belly of the Beast:
Mississippi State defensive coordinator Geoff Collins, known around these parts for the great "You're a Baller" and "Can of SWAG" recruiting notes, has returned to this happy land with his latest artistic venture for cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
While another strong effort from Collins (though why is Buggs Life so small?), perhaps it is time to use his skills of illustrating and wordsmithing for a higher purpose. Something like helping educate the youths of America on our country's great history.
And so, for the kids out there who need more learning and understanding of American history, here are five of our country's most significant moments, according to Geoff Collins.

Dan Mullen Hired At Mississippi State
BEST OF MAXIM
Michigan linebacker commit Michael Ferns recently opened a recruiting letter from Mississippi State that he had forgotten about and this is what was inside. If you remember, Ferns also received a letter from the Bulldogs coaching staff that said “YOU’RE A BALLER” on the inside and nothing else. Not sure what Swag tastes like, but I think “Stark Vegas” could be a fun...
We’ve seen coaches go to some pretty extensive lengths to convince players to come play for their squad. For example, last week Kentucky head football coach Mark Stoops sent Braxton Berrios 104 handwritten letters. Or there is the always comical NC State recruiting letter that was sent to C.J. Reavis trying to sway him. But after today, those tactics seem a little less “out there...
Mississippi State assistant coach Geoff Collins is back to sending swaggerish recruiting letters, or as some would call them, pieces of artwork.
When Dan Mullen calls himself a ‘rainmaker’ he isn’t referring to the legal profession. No, he means the real 100%-chance-of-precipitation thing. Because the first two days down on the Farm have seen storms disrupt Mississippi State’s practice schedule. And this isn’t the sort of Farm which wants wet weather, either.
Mississippi State held the final open practice of preseason Sunday, before the Bulldogs take their preseason work to the South Farm field on Monday. In fact managers were already loading up equipment for the transition before Sunday’s work was done.
Where would a player who sees a letter from Mississippi State and Alabama want to spend the next 3-5 years of his life? StarkVegas, or the $50 million football factory?

This is now the third comical recruiting letter from the Mississippi State Bulldogs coaching staff that has emerged on the Internet and I have to say that at this point I would love to meet the head coach, Dan Mullen. I just want to know how they come up with these drawings and what the logic is behind these letters and why they think this is a good idea. I feel like most recruits...
Mississippi State put in a second day of split-squad practices, but unlike Friday’s similar schedule the personnel was largely different. Coach Dan Mullen had the current number ones on offense and defense again in the morning, this time though joined by most of the second teams.
While it has been a long time coming, Mississippi State fans have the news they have been waiting for as Greenville-Weston four star linebacker Gerri Green has committed to Coach Dan Mullen and the home state Bulldogs. Green, considered a long time Mississippi State lean, informed the Bulldog coaching staff yesterday of his intentions of announcing his verbal pledge to Mississippi State today.
