MSU Goes Boise State With Huge Bulldog Heads On New Alternate Helmet

Today, Mississippi State University and adidas — why don’t they capitalize their name? — unveiled two sets of special football uniforms to be worn later this year.

On November 3rd, State will don all white uniforms at home against Texas A&M to commemorate the two schools’ 2000 “Snow Bowl” Independence Bowl battle.  For those who like the helmet Boise State sometimes wears featuring a giant Bronco logo on one side, you’re in luck ’cause the Dogs are doubling the fun.  The white helmet — shown at left — will feature a big silver Bulldog head on each side of the lid and MSU’s standard maroon M-State logo will be centered on the back as well.

Then, the Dogs will go from silver to gold on November 24th when they visit Oxford for this year’s Egg Bowl game.  As was the case last season, State’s unis will feature gold numerals as they battle for the Golden Egg trophy.

So why has Mississippi State recently jumped on the multiple-uniforms bandwagon?  Dan Mullen knows:

 

“They’re 18-, 19-year-old kids, you know.  They look at what’s cool and they want to play in cool uniforms.  And I think, you know, recruiting… I think recruits will think it’s really cool.  That’s what kids want to do, they want to come play for a cool team.”

 

Cool.

Moultrie Decides To Leave Starkville, Could Remain In College

Forward Arnett Moultrie won’t return to Mississippi State for his senior year.

Moultrie announced his intention on Wednesday to enter the NBA Draft and sign with an agent, which would end his college career.

“I have enjoyed my time at Mississippi State University and I will never forget the people I met and got to know,” Moultrie said. “Keep me in your prayers and I will keep Bulldog Nation in mine.”

There’s still a chance Moultrie could keep his college options open, according to Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. Parrish cites sources saying Moultrie is considering, on some level, the idea of graduating from Mississippi State, entering a graduate program at another school and applying for a waiver to finish his career elsewhere.

Parrish also wrote on twitter he thinks it’s unlikely Moutlrie, who has yet to sign the paperwork with an agent, will decide to remain in college.

One thing is certain: Moultrie’s time at Mississippi State is finished.

Report: Mullen Close To Signing Deal With Penn State; MSU Coach Denies It

According to Jackson television station WAPT, “sources close to Mississippi State University’s program have said that football coach Dan Mullen is close to signing a deal to replace Joe Paterno at Penn State.”

Asked about the report, Mullen said Tuesday night, “it’s the most irresponsible reporting that I’ve ever heard of.”  According to The Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Mullen said he has not been contacted by Penn State “or any other school.”

Mullen claimed the report was started by “rival institutions trying to ruin our recruiting which we have dominated in this state over the past three years.”

MSU AD Scott Stricklin added: “They quoted a source close to the school.  I can’t imagine who that could be, because I haven’t been contacted by Penn State and Dan hasn’t been contacted by Penn State.  It’s not a story, period.”

Later in the evening a spokesperson for MSU tweeted that the reporter for WAPT-TV had “come to the (Mississippi) Hall of Fame (gala) to apologize for station’s erroneous report.”

All this after the Mullen rumor filtered out of Pennsylvania late Monday and was followed by an ESPN report Tuesday afternoon stating that Mullen was Penn State’s top candidate.

The coach laughed off the reports at the time by saying tongue-in-cheek that his name comes up every time there’s an open coaching job.  If WAPT’s report does eventually turn out to be correct, MSU fans likely won’t be laughing along with Mullen.

Mullen hails from Pennsylvania and his father is a Penn State grad, which partly explains why a coach with a 6-6 record this past season is so high on the Nittany Lions’ wish list.

In the end, State’s coach said he believes the rumors about him are actually a positive.  “… There are two rumors about you: either rumors you’re going somewhere or rumors you’re getting fired.  So, I’ll take the going-somewhere rumor better than the getting-fired rumor.”
