Mullen: The offensive line is just really really bad


Dan Mullen is hoping for over 40,000 fans on campus next Saturday for for the Mississippi State spring game.

That gives Mullen a week to clean up what he calls “a really sloppy offense.”

Following Thursday’s practice, Mullen didn't sugarcoat his thoughts about the offense and specifically, the offensive line.

“It’s just sloppy, really sloppy. The offensive line is just really really bad, a long way to go, but it’s a really young crew. We’ll get ‘em going.”

He added, “The defense was great at times. They were great at times because the offense was really bad. They were great at times because they did good, but there were really some glaring mistakes. As we keep developing and keep teaching, you want to see a consistent performance and that’s not what we are seeing right now, but we have a lot of practice time to get that fixed.”

Mullen also mentioned he would like to see consistency from his young punters, who both have tremendous leg strength.

CSS will broadcast the spring game next Saturday. Former Mississippi State head coach Jackie Sherrill will serve as an analyst. The Bulldogs’ baseball team hosts Florida at 12 pm before kick-off of the spring game at 5 pm.

To add some depth on the offensive line, Mullen visited with the Sigma Chi’s today at lunch. We heard there weren't many prospects, but a number frat guys ready for Super Bulldog Weekend.
