Bulldogs Open Preseason Camp; Coach Talks Health Situations, Player Numbers

Mississippi State ran through the first day of preseason practicing in about as business-as-usual as camp can be. And that’s good, according to Dan Mullen.

The Bulldog coach spoke with media after Tuesday’s session. But as he hadn’t reviewed the day’s work yet specifics on practice have to wait. Mullen talked more about the MSU mindset to open camp, which was positive all around.

He also went over some peripheral items such as player numbers, and how in the future special digits such as those worn by Nick Bell and Keffer McGee will be used. In the case of Bell’s #36 that hasn’t been absolutely settled for 2016.

But #21 has not been worn in a real game since 1996. Now two decades later redshirt freshman Nick Gibson, who practiced in that jersey last season as a redshirt, will activate it for real.

Mullen also clarified a few health situations in today’s interview video.
