To Mullen, it’s simply the ‘school up north’

When you talk to Mullen these days about the Bulldogs’ arch-rivals, he doesn’t refer to them as Ole Miss, Mississippi or even the Rebels.

Rather, it’s “the school up north.”

On Monday, Mullen embarked on a five-day, 12-stop “Road Dawgs” tour of the state and surrounding areas. Traveling on a state-of-the-art motor home, he’s speaking to Mississippi State booster groups and visiting with fans in all corners of the state from Batesville, to Kosciusko, to Biloxi.
