Manic Monday musings from the Sports Think Tank
Dan Mullen has done a great job recruiting and developing players. Sure Mullen and the staff have missed to a certain extent at the WR and oline position.
But they like they’re personnel at the two positions.
7-0 is an unbelievable accomplishment, and should be celebrated.
In Starkville, Columbia, SC , and Oxford you’re not going to hit on every single position over a 4-year span. It’s not going to happen.
The reason Oregon has hit in recruiting on both sides of the ball is because they’ve been winning consistently since 1994 and Phil Knight is a baller with “big-boy” money. Knight has invested over $100 million in OU athletics.
My point is it takes time, money and patience, but with Mullen’s blue print and strategic planning you have a good football team. That’s a win for Mississippi State.
You’re not going to Ttown and winning and neither is any other team in college football. But Mullen has done a great job in Starkville.
Jimbo Fisher, Mark Richt and Mack Brown should be ashamed when they watch Kansas State football.

Dr. Bill Snyder is the best developer of players and Xs & Os coach in the country.
What in the hell is LSU doing on offense?
You have 4 All-conference tailbacks and you’re trying to throw the ball in the red zone?
Come on Mad-Hatter….you’re better than that. I think.
Mark May, ESPN analyst, nailed at halftime of the LSU v. Texas A&M game. “Know your identity. Your identity is running the football.”
Great quote from the weekend….
I love this part of Mark McCarter’s article on al.com this weekend:
Fans everywhere fool themselves into a sense of entitlement. They’re wrong to believe their teams must win 10 games a year — or else. A season ticket and a collection of logo apparel don’t guarantee that.
