    I think both teams are better off with a reunion.

    Does he call the plays? Fucking awful today. How many short side runs do you need to run against a really good defense before you realize that's a bad idea. And that fake option keeper up the middle was very nice the first time they ran it, the next 12 not so much.

    QB can’t throw the ball beyond 10 yards and his best WR has a 27% dropped passes rate. Hard to score with that combo

    Is he the guy that dropped that wide open TD pass against you guys? He had the defender beat by five yards easy and the balk went right through his hands

    Just got back from the game. I’m still giving Moorhead a pass. Fitz and the receivers are just struggle. Yes the play calls were very questionable but we should have easily won that game. Stupid penalties and missed plays. In the first half alone Fitz made the wrong read 4 times on wr’s wide open for td’s.

    More like curiousity to give us a view into where Mullen may have us headed.

    I think the point made about Miss State having a top 5 defense, a strong OL with NFL players, and a 5th year QB that go 8-5 says a hell of a lot about Mullen and what he built. Especially when we have had to hear various fans of other programs question the hiring of Mullen in the first place.

    The team Mullen built up going into this season is damn impressive and filled with NFL players. Most SEC posters would have said this was the most talented State team he would have ever had.

    He’ll have you going in the right direction. If he was coaching us I believe this would have been a 10-2 team.

    Mullen spoiled them a bit.

    When he got there, they were clearly the worst program in the SEC West. He completely turned them around and made State a very respectable program in the toughest division in college football. But he never took them to “next level” in their minds. That is, winning a NY6 bowl and beating Alabama (like Freeze did at Ole Miss). Their hope was Moorhead would be the guy that took them to the next level. He had a roster in 2018 capable of a 10-3/11-2 season but went 8-5 with some pretty ugly losses. A lot of them really thought that last year could have been the year where they pushed for a division title. The crazy thing is a lot of MSU fans I know dislike Mullen too, despite his record, because he was always job hunting.

    Realistically, the best Moorhead can do now is keep the program where Mullen had it (winning 7-9 games a year, and maybe a season like they had in 2014 if you catch some breaks). It doesn’t look like he has them on the right trajectory, though.

    To be fair, most of that talent was lopsided on the defensive side of the ball. Fitzgerald was a really poor fit for Moorhead’s offense and their WRs were among the worst in the SEC.

    But yeah, that was a generational type defense they had. Everyone knew Simmons was awesome out of HS, but Sweat and Abram were two bounce back JUCO guys that the recruiting services just really underrated. Abram played HS ball just down the road from my hometown. He was a nice player, but most expected him to be a fringe starter at UGA at best.

    He's a slightly better recruiter but that's it. Never got the infatuation with him as an oc, seemed like McSorley scrambled a ton to make plays or they just threw a bunch of jump passes to their tall receivers. He gave guys like Bruce Feldman access so of course they loved him.

    I’m still on the fence with Joe. Personally I want to see him succeed and do well here for a long time. I think the players like him and he loves the recruiting side. I have concern with the discipline of the program, strength program, and some of his preparation. We had a delay of game penalty on the first play against auburn. How do you not have your play ready to go. Then another delay of game on the punt a few plays later. I’m worried he’s wanting to have to much control over the offense and not do HC things during the game. If he can adapt and make some changes I think he’ll be a good fit. I know we’ll probably never compete for a title. Give me 8-9 win seasons with the occasional 10-11 possibilities and I’m happy.

    The idea his offenses were “a bunch of jump passes to tall receivers” was a horseshit opinion then and it still is now. The dude was awesome at PSU. Our offense was putrid prior to him arriving and took a solid step back when he left. I think he can be a good HC. He’s a pretty good recruiter and his system/guys have blossomed that used to be with him at Fordham or PSU. Granted, he had some elite talent to work with on offense at PSU in Godwin, Barkley, McSorely, Gesicki, and Daesean Hamilton but he also dealt with a dogshit OL.

    Yes, Rutgers is a shit job for any half decent FBS coach but goddamn you could probably win 5 games a year at this point, get paid $3+ million/year and have a fucking statue built for you. And trust me, as someone who relishes not having to defend New Jersey anymore, I would much rather live in a in a gaudy McMansion in NJ than anywhere in Mississippi and I promise you it’s not debatable.
