    We weren't told anything about it. It seemed plausible though.

In my first ever one-on-one meeting with him he tells me "You better good because I don't want you here. You're taking the slot of a potential 5 star I could sign". Nothing like a great first impression.

    I've had a few previous employees at State tell me he tried to get me to quit multiple times early on. His plan was to let me play in 2011 then sign someone to take my spot. I ended up having a good year in 2011. He signed Bell (who is a good friend of mine). I ended up having an even better year in 2012. So I guess he saw the best time to do this was my senior year. In camp prior to the 2013 season, he starts putting Bell in with the 1's on punt team. I ask Mullen after practice about it and he says "The best player will play. You know that. Bell has better numbers than you in practice". So I go and request these numbers and they have Bell beating me by one yard. Each week they'd grade our punts and I'd usually lose by a half a yard or one yard. Not sure the validity of these numbers but that was the rationale behind it. I knew at that point I was up against a battle I'd never win. It was tough on me but even tougher on my parents.
    Smh good grief what a douche. A potential 5 Star? Hahahaha heís in denial about his own recruiting ability. You were a better, more consistent punter than Devon Bell during your time here. Iíll argue anyone who says otherwise whether you were on here or not. I know yíall are friends and donít want to get into the you vs him talk but that had to be said. Thanks for confirming he was the giant douche I thought he was.

    Hud is a great guy. Loved his passion. Was excited when I saw that he was coming back.
    Loved Manny.
    Coach Hughes was a solid solid dude as well.

    What a prick. It was a pretty popular speculation amongst fans that Mullen had checked out long before he left. There's no telling where we could've gone had Mullen put his ego aside and actually tried (for instance, at the end of the '14 season). I just wonder if he was burned out or if he thought he was just "too good" for Starkville.

    Megan always seemed genuine to me. Always super nice and went out of her way to make all the players feel at home.

    They recruited me the hardest 98% of the way through. I grew up a State fan and it was hard. For a while I thought I'd end up there. State didn't come on until late in the summer going into my senior year of high school.

    Orgeron was an absolute character. They were all fantastic recruiters. In fact, I had a few conversations with Freeze early on because at that time he was their main recruiting guy for football. I can't remember if he was an actual coach or not yet. Ironic really.

    I'm a business analyst at a financial institution. I took the afternoon off because I had to meet some contractors at our house to have some work done. So no worries.

    Hmm tough one. I think Texas A&M wins it though. All of their fans are nice and very into the game.

    Although when it was almost game time at LSU and they played "Callin Baton Rouge" by Garth Brooks, I asked myself "What have I gotten myself into".

    I see my snapper all the time. He's my brother in law. Yes I married his sister.
    I keep up with Bell and Sobiesk pretty regularly as well. I'll occasionally text Feld since he's the strength coach at Oregon now. DePasquale and I text every now and then too. The only coaches I keep up with are some of the strength coaches. Those guys are awesome.

    I lost in the finals at the national chess convention that day.
    It was awkward interviewing for a job with my jersey on but they totally understood my situation.
    Blue you're my boy.
    Got choked up watching Marley and Me. I must admit.
    I did take down Eminem in my underground rap battle.

    I've heard it said more than once that players don't get into "rivalries" as much as fans do. What's your take on that? Does being an in-state player vs an out-of-state player make a difference?

    I was somewhere in the middle because I grew up going to State games and understood the rivalry. I think in-state makes difference. I'd say overall though we didn't get into as much as fans did. Now that I'm a fan again, it's a bigger deal to me.
