Is Miss. State Legit?

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has
rarely met a conversation he didn't like during his two-plus years
on campus, chatting up reporters and fans at every turn.

But there are two subjects that will make the third-year coach
clam up in a hurry: Injuries and the depth chart.

Thanks to mostly closed practices, Mississippi State's preseason
camp is a mystery. Mullen has a policy of not answering injury
inquiries, dismissing them as "silly questions." Position battles
are also shrouded in secrecy.

The secrets won't last too much longer, though. The 20th-ranked
Bulldogs open their season on the road against Memphis on Thursday at The Liberty Bowl.

The Bulldogs return 15 starters from a team that finished 9-4
last season.
