The Bible, in the book of Matthew, tells the story of the wise and foolish builders.
The wise man built his house on the rock. The foolish man constructed his on the sand. When the storms came, the house on the rock didn’t budge. Meanwhile the house with a foundation made of sand came tumbling down.
Over the next few weeks, now that Mississippi State has begun its preseason training camp, head coach Joe Moorhead will do his best to make sure the Bulldogs have a foundation made of solid stone. For MSU’s fortunes this season and perhaps for Moorhead’s future in Starkville, the choices made in the next several days could have long-range implications. It’s an important month to say the least for both Moorhead and the Bulldogs.
