Mississippi St. QB hopes to be SEC’s next star

STARKVILLE — There’s an easy measuring stick for the difference between Dan Mullen’s old job as Florida offensive coordinator and his new gig at Mississippi State: His quarterbacks.
With the Gators, he tutored the Southeastern Conference’s largest quarterback — Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. As preseason practice opens Monday, the Bulldogs’ offense is led by one of college football’s smallest — 5-foot-11 former walk-on Tyson Lee, a guy who worked very hard all offseason to gain the 17 pounds he needed to reach 200.
