MISSISSIPPI STATE RUMORS

Four-star 2008 signee-turned-MLBer returns to Bulldogs

Apparently you can, in a sports sense, come home again. In 2008, Rashun Dixon was a four-star member of Mississippi State’s recruiting class, the last of Sylvester Croom‘s tenure. Dixon never suited up for the Bulldogs, however, as he was drafted in the 10th round of the Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland Athletics and embarked on a career in professional baseball....

2014 SEC Preview: Is now the time to take Mississippi State seriously?

Everyone seems to be pretty confident in Starkville right now. It must happen when your team expands its stadium, wins their bowl game by 37 (losing me money in the process) and beats Ole Miss in The Egg Bowl. Anyway, Dan Mullen's chest was very puffed when he walked into SEC Media Days. We're glad he didn't come in wearing a visor. Only Steve Spurrier looks cool in one...

Adding Some Zest To The Dak Prescott Heisman Campaign

Unless your Internet has been turned off for the past few months (and what kind of psycho are you if it was), you’ve no doubt experienced a splash of “Dak Prescott for Heisman” talk. Prescott, the Mississippi State quarterback, finished his sophomore season on a high note, leading the Bulldogs to wins over Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl and Rice in the Liberty Bowl. The Ole Miss...

SEC Countdown: No. 9 Mississippi State

When Dan Mullen arrived as head coach in 2009, he brought an era of prosperity with him to Mississippi State football. A 5-7 opening salvo was followed by four straight winning seasons. In that same time span came four consecutive bowl appearances, the first time that's happened in Bulldogs history. Mississippi State is 3-1 in those four bowl games, and has a combined 31-21 record...

MSU’s Dan Mullen at SEC Media Days

Clanga! Clanga! Clanga! Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen spoke at SEC Media Days on Tuesday. Here are some major points gleaned from his press conference: On MSU QB Dak Prescott: “Dak is a guy that because of his skill set, he can beat you with his arm, with his legs, he can run between the tackles and he can run in the open field. He has a lot going for him. But most importantly...

Bulldogs' offensive success likely hinges on Prescott's deep ball

HOOVER, Ala. -- Six of the last seven SEC West champions--the lone exception being Alabama in 2008--have gone on to win the SEC Championship Game. Five of the last seven West winners have taken home the BCS title, and six have played in that championship game. Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen believes any team in the West, in part because of the dominance of the division,...

Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott On Winning SEC: ‘We Wear Adidas, Nothing Is Impossible’

Athletic directors from K-State and Mississippi State schedule football game on Twitter

There is snark tweets, funny tweets,  troll tweets and, yes, even LeBron James back-to-Cleveland tweets. But what about using 140 characters (or less) to set dates for future college football games? It happened. What started as some good-natured fun between athletic directors ended up in an agreement to meet on the gridiron. K-State AD John Currie got the conversation started when...

Photo: Mississippi State Football Is Calling Its Campus “Stark Vegas”

Mississippi State University is located in Starkville, Miss., a small southern town with a population just shy of 24,000. If you could look up The Opposite of Las Vegas in a dictionary, a place like Starkville would likely appear.  So it’s a little confusing why Mississippi State’s football program is comparing its hometown to the Nevada wonderland.  Ballers on campus today...
