Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen was still accepting blame on Sunday afternoon.
After Saturday's 38-13 loss to the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, there could have been quite a bit of finger-pointing going on.
Mullen continued to insist during his Sunday teleconference that the reason for the problems ultimately rest on his shoulders.
CLEVELAND â€“ The Starkville High School girls swim team benefitted from the state championship efforts of the girls 200 freestyle relay team and claimed second place overall in Class II at the State Championship meet on Saturday.

It wasn't what Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray wanted, but at least it was a win.

It was almost like watching a video game on Saturday.
If only it had been, the Mississippi State Bulldogs could have maybe found a way to pull the plug on it.
The numbers put up by quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies were crazy.
Texas A&M had 386 yards of total offense by halftime and ended up with 693 to soundly defeat Mississippi State 38-13 at Davis Wade Stadium.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs were not able to produce on either side of the football on Saturday and ultimately the game went the way of Texas A&M.
