Sherrill still making news at MSU

At the invitation of new coach Dan Mullen, Sherrill visited State’s spring practice session here Friday afternoon – and even before he left, Mississippi State officials were scrambling to see if the school had broken NCAA or Southeastern Conference rules for what Sherrill might have done while he was there.
