MSU notebook from SEC Media Days

Staff Writer

Mississippi State freshman football players better not get used to their jersey numbers just yet.
On Monday, the Bulldogs released an early version of their 2016 roster. Tuesday at Southeastern Conference Media Days at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham – Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama, MSU head coach Dan Mullen said those guys shouldn’t panic if they’re not pleased with the digits they were assigned.
“When the roster came out (Monday), I think every freshman blew me up,” Mullen joked. “I said, ‘that’s not finalized yet, we just kind of assigned it off what locker you’re going to be in right now and what number that coincides with.”
