For example, if it ain’t khaki, Michigan Jim Harbaugh won’t wear it. But Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen is different.
“The games we lost last season, a lot of it had to do with red zone offense in key moments”, Mullen said. He finished eighth in the voting.
Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen addressed the issue but didn’t definitively share his opinion on whether the state should change it, since it contains the Confederate flag.
Prescott’s National Football League stock might have tumbled some, too. The 43-year-old may not be ready for New York Fashion Week, yet he brought his A-game to SEC Media Day with a pair of “Yeezy” sneakers designed by rapper Kanye West for Adidas. With only eight returning starters, the Bulldogs might not relive last year’s run to No. 1. Prescott also rushed for 986 yards and 14 scores making him one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in all of college football.
“I don’t see it very often”, Mullen said in reference to the Confederate battle flag. Once we made it to the top, now we’re back at the bottom.
But getting back to that level is a challenge. “It was a great experience for our young men to get there”. The entire offensive coaching staff returns, as does defensive coordinator Manny Diaz.
When media days began on Monday, it was Auburn QB Jeremy Johnson who was garnering the most Heisman consideration. The East was slotted Georgia, Tennessee, Missouri, South Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
Prescott was first-team All-SEC previous year and a finalist for a handful of major awards. There was some question mark about his accuracy, and he hit 62% of his passes for 3,449 yards and 27 touchdowns with 11 picks.
“Early in his season past year, he asked me about the deal (the LSU quarterback situation)”.
In his free time at the academy, Prescott walked around nearby New Orleans with fellow campers Cody Kessler of USC and Christian Hackenberg of Penn State. Frankly, Prescott felt more like a celebrity.
“It’s harder to stay at No. 1 than to get to No. 1”, he said. “I try to be swagged up”, he told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy (via Twitter). “I do know we’re the most diverse campus in the Southeastern Conference”.
