Bearing in mind that we managed to get ‘They Might Be Giants’ in an article, we thought it important to get some Ernest Hemmingway in this article…..and that’s why we’ve gone with the ‘For Whom The Cowbell Tolls’ headline….(apparently it’s also the name of a Mississippi State blog, so we’re not exactly first in with this one…)

Anyway, despite many people thinking that he would be out of a job before the 2014 National Signing Day, Dan Mullen’s victory in the Egg Bowl over Ole Miss and subsequent bowl win over Rice has now put a smile or two on the faces of the Cowbell Army.

The Jamoral Graham signing was great because, as ESPN said – he can play on both sides of the ball. He declared for MSU in his junior year. This should help the Bulldogs. On the defensive side of the ball, JUCO DE Cory Thomas’ decision to go to Starkville rather than Knoxville was OK with folks in the SEC West. He gave no reason for his switch.

Mississippi State did add a pair of four-star athletes in running back Aeris Williams and linebacker Gerri Green. Williams – who is said to have a “a good combination of size, speed and power” by ESPN Scouts, had offers from Florida State, Wisconsin and Ole Miss, while Green chose Mississippi State over a host of other SEC schools including Ole Miss, Auburn, Arkansas,  Vandy and Tennessee.

MSU ended the day ranked  38th with 247, and 36th with ESPN.
