Generally Coach Dan Mullen does his day-after discussion of the game on Sundays. But with the Bulldogs coming off a Thursday contest, and headed for a brief weekend break, Mullen had a little Friday afternoon time to spare.

It must have been a satisfying practice. How else to explain Dan Mullen having some friendly fun in the media room Wednesday morning, such as when he picked up the FOX microphone in front and asked if he could sing?

The Bulldogs cut it close on weather but wrapped-up just as the rain, and occasional lightning flash, began. Not that Coach Dan Mullen's mind was on the conditions at this point in preparations for the upcoming contest with Vanderbilt.

Just because the first loss was inevitable made the experience no more palatable for Dan Mullen. "I despise losing," he said today, less than 15 hours after suffering that setback. "It gives you a sick feeling at the bottom of your stomach. That's how I feel emotionally."
