Mississippi State – Dan Mullen

The Bulldogs and Dan Mullen are still in love, but you can see things fading a bit.


This one never advanced to engagement, nor will it ever be a marriage. They’ll tolerate each other for as long as they can. Mullen has been that guy who works really hard at the relationship, but then does things almost seeming to sabotage things.

The cowbell clanging Bulldogs are getting impatient, and probably feel a little teased after last season. Mullen is going to have to put a ring on it soon if he wants to keep this one.

If things fall back this season, it could lead to an ugly split, and Mullen will take everything he came with and then some if that happens.
