Today marks the end of training camp for Mississippi State.
The Bulldogs will wrap up their time at South Farm and resume their normal practice routine from here on out. Head coach Dan Mullen was pleased with how his team performed in the first of two practices on Thursday.
"It was a good day," Mullen said. "We got a lot done out there today. I was pleased, basically as we're wrapping-down training camp right now. I talked to our guys about tomorrow. We're going to have a lighter evening practice, just helmets and shoulder pads. Then Saturday scrimmage, and then we're off for a couple of days. Coaches will kind of start putting a plan together of exactly where we are, who is ready to go, who is definitely ready to go, who is on the borderline ready to go, and who probably needs another year developing."
Saturday night's scrimmage will be held under the lights at Davis Wade Stadium to get a feel for what it will be like for their Sept. 1 kickoff against Jackson State. There are several things Mullen will be looking for live at the scrimmage and even more he will be watching for on film.
