A year ago, Mississippi State players were just trying to adjust to new coach Dan Mullen. This fall, Mullen expects the Bulldogs to compete much better than last year’s 5-7 finish. He is even bold enough to say he expects his team to be in Atlanta in December, competing for the league title.
“Let’s put it this way: our guys believe, how we played last year, they can compete with any team in the league,” Mullen said during Wednesday’s SEC Media Days. “How we finished the year off, I believe they now believe they can beat any team in this league.”
