Grading Mississippi State’s 2017 quarterback situation: Dan Mullen found another stud

The 2016 season is over, and rosters are starting to come together for 2017. It’s the perfect time to evaluate each team’s quarterback situation for next season. Quarterback issues were a significant part of the SEC’s struggles last season, but the conference has starters coming back 12 of the 14 schools. The turnaround should be immediate. However, Mississippi State has fewer quarterback...

Maurice Linguist is Headed to Join P.J. Fleck at Minnesota

Well, it looks like Dan Mullen has some more hiring to do. He just brought in a new defensive coordinator (and subsequently shipped the old one up to Louisville) and now Maurice Linguist is leaving Mississippi State to head up and join P.J. Fleck’s staff at Minnesota. Mississippi State has confirmed that safeties coach Maurice Linguist is indeed headed to join the staff...

Mississippi State, Miami excited to be in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) So much for the notion that the St. Petersburg Bowl is just another lower-tier postseason matchup featuring teams with mediocre records and little to accomplish, even by winning. Mississippi State (5-7) and Miami of Ohio (6-6) are happy to be in Florida, and not just because the temperature climbed into the low 80s on Christmas Day. Much of the past...

The Oregon Ducks should hire Dan Mullen

The Oregon Ducks should hire Dan Mullen as their next head coach. Make no mistake about it: UO is the best job in the country. Since that’s the case, the school will have no shortage of qualified candidates that are interested in the position. But, Mullen would make the most sense.

Mississippi State upsets Texas A&M, keep bowl hopes alive

The Mississippi State Bulldogs upset the Texas A&M Aggies 35-28, keeping their hopes of a bowl game alive. Make no mistake about it: this was a huge victory for Dan Mullen’s young team. After all, the Dawgs are in the midst of a tough season. MSU started the year with a loss to South Alabama, when it missed a field goal on the last play of the game. It would drop two more...

Terry’s Takes: Fresno State’s Vacancy, Jim Grobe and Baylor, and Why Dan Mullen Shouldn’t be Fired

Here’s the latest installment of Terry’s Takes, which focuses on the coaching carousel this week. Jeff Tedford isn’t the answer for Fresno State Although he seems like the perfect fit (on paper) for Fresno State, Jeff Tedford should not be the Bulldogs’ next head coach. That’s not to say that Tedford isn’t a great coach. He is. In 11 seasons at California, Tedford won...

Mississippi State Bulldogs face “must win” game against BYU Cougars

The Mississippi State Bulldogs face a “must win” game against the BYU Cougars on Friday night. That’s not to say the Dawgs are playing for Dan Mullen’s job. They aren’t. Sure, Mullen has been on the hot seat ever since the team dropped the season opener to South Alabama. But, it seems highly unlikely that MSU would dump him after one bad year, given that he’s the only...

Mississippi State decides first-team reps with rock, paper, scissors

With the graduation of star quarterback Dak Prescott, Mississippi State is one of many SEC programs with a battle at the position on its hands. Four players—Nick Fitzgerald, Elijah Staley, Nick Tiano, and Damian Williams—are vying for the starting job, and no player has set himself apart. Mississippi State’s QBs are so close, in fact, that they had to play ‘rock, paper,...
