With the Music City Bowl just a day away, we had the chance to talk to The Bruce Dickinson from For Whom The Cowbell Tolls, the SB Nation Mississippi State Blog. You should be able to find my answers to his questions on their site later on today.
FWTCT and BSD talk Dan Mullen, the MSU quarterback situation, predictions and more after the jump...
1.) MSU played a lot of good teams well this year, but couldn't break through with that signature win. Deconstruct the season as a whole relative to fans' expectations.
I think MSU probably played one of the touger schedules in the country this year. There were close games that we should have won (Auburn, South Carolina) and games we kept close that we weren't expected to (LSU). I think most fans would have liked to have seen an 8 or 9 win season, but once our injuries mounted on the OL, we knew it would be a long road.
2.) Talk a little bit about coaching. What is Dan Mullen's philosophy overall? Assess the job he has done in his tenure with the Bulldogs.
3.) Offensively, Mississippi State was inconsistent. Is that large in part due to the quality of defenses in the SEC, or is there more to the story?
4.) Speaking of offense, who will we be seeing at QB for the Dawgs?
5.) Who are the names we need to know on both sides of the ball? Who should Wake Forest fans keep circled in their programs?
6.) How do you see the game playing out? What's your final score?
