Dan Mullen calls Mississippi State to Florida a ‘lateral move’
Gainesville’s actually about 550 miles southeast of Starkville, Dan.
Mississippi State won 10 games in 2014. Florida won six. That’s unusual for both schools, but don’t tell Mississippi State head coach (and former Florida coordinator) Dan Mullen. His defensive coordinator, Geoff Collins, was hired away by new Florida head coach Jim McElwain, and Mullen had something to say about it Tuesday:

Well, they are both SEC schools, but there is a slight difference in prestige and spending power between the two programs. And hey, Mullen’s not even right geographically!
