Bulldogs leave the ‘farm’ on better note

By Paul Jones/Special to the Journal

STARKVILLE – On Monday MSU head coach Dan Mullen ripped his team for lack of effort and lack of execution. Regarding Tuesday’s practice, one of those areas seemed to get better.
“The effort was better,” said Mullen “There’s still a lot of the execution and things on both sides of the ball we gotta get cleaned up. You know, a couple of turnovers on offense and we can’t turn the ball over and expect to win. That was disappointing and there were some guys making some plays on defense to help that.”
Tuesday marked the Bulldogs’ last practice at their home away from home in training camp – South Farm. The team will move to the normal practice fields on Wednesday.
When asked if the team accomplished what he wanted at South Farm, Mullen said he challenged each player.
“If we didn’t, it’s too late now cause were coming back (to the practice fields Wednesday),” said Mullen. “That was our last practice out there today. You know, the big challenge for each kid and I asked them….there are two things with (South) Farm, you can survive the farm or attack the farm. If we’re worried about surviving the farm then we’re not going to be a very good football team. If we go attack the farm then we probably have a chance to be a championship team.”
