this made me laugh.....
" I know the Gator fans went nuts when Addazio was the OC and wanted Mullen back in a big way. Mullen is also a great recruiter."

some ass hat on a penn state site says mullen is a great recruiter.  lol...priceless.

either way, looks like the penn state talk is heating up a bit.  i think dan is interviewing today.  or thats what the interwebs are saying.

I'm at the point I don't give a damn anymore.  If he goes, go hire Hudspeth and find another OC....

It's going to happen as long as little old MSU is going to bowl games.  May as well get used to it.  We have played 112 seasons of football at MSU.  We are just now going to our 16th bowl.  So, basically, we have a .500 record or better roughly 15% of the time.  We average going to a bowl every 7th year.  In 3 years, he's taken us to 2.  Regardless of how bad his recruiting sucks, folks are going to notice that.

Don't forget that for a long time, going .500 or even having a winning record didn't guarantee a bowl.  It's only the last few years where there are nearly as many bowl bids as teams...

With smart OOC scheduling, you could go more often.  4 easy wins with KY and OM on the schedule every year.  Pick up a win over Aub/Arky/SC/GA/Florida/Vandy every now and then and you are just about guaranteed a 6-6 season each year.  Screw playing WV, Oregon, GT, etc.  Templeton bullshit

Yes, I should have said these facts aren't accurate because of that and the fact that early on there were no bowls.  The main point (that 99% of posters on here with 1 exception can understand) remains.

Dude, just admit you are obsessed with me. This is getting out of hand. BLS, give out a warning or something to these trolls.

No offense, but Starkville isn't really a place a ton of big time recruits are dying to go regardless of how good the program is. Tough be labeled as a 'great' recruiter when you pulling kids to the middle of Mississippi.

That's definitely a hurdle and I know you meant nothing about it... but when's the last time you visited Starkville or the MSU campus?  Just an honest question.  I can think of several equal/worse college towns with equal/better football programs.  Stark/MSU isn't even the same place as it was when I was a freshman in 2006.

The fact is that it doesn't matter if he's the greatest recruiter in NCAA football.  It's the locations lack of appeal.  The programs lack of appeal.

Like i've said before, top talent doesn't want to help drive the train to Atlanta, most are lazy and want to jump on the easy ride to the SECCG and BCSCG with the likes of LSU, UA, UGA, etc.

Starkville IMO, is a nice campus, but location is lacking.  I'm not saying that it is any more or less crappy than say Tuscaloosa, but i also would say that Tuscaloosa isn't  the Ritz Carlton either.

First I've heard of it. If he does, we'll hire Hudspeth and keep right on trucking.

Honestly, I've never been. I've heard really great things about the campus. I've also heard "meh" about the surrounding area. The main point of my post is just that he's facing an uphill battle there. Even the name Starkville doesn't churn out the most beautiful imagery.

Granted, like others have said, is it much worse than Tuscaloosa or Gainesville? Probably not. Tuscaloosa has the winning tradition though. And Gainesville is Florida even though it's not even that Florida-y of a city.
