Cam Newton's Thoughts on Miss State and Coach Mullen...


Found some interesting quotes on AuburnTigers.com regarding Cam Newton and his feelings toward Mississippi State and Coach Dan Mullen.  As many of you probably remember, Cam was highly recruited by Miss State and he has a history with Mullen in Florida.

On playing Mississippi State...
"Just like any other game, I'm ready to play. As far as my relationship with Coach Mullen, our relationship is a long one and goes far beyond just football. I have so much respect for Coach Mullen and what he has going at Mississippi State. As a team, we can't wait to play our next opponent."

Was Coach Mullen involved with recruiting you to Florida?
"He was. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach there. His persona the way he goes after athletes is top notch and superb. I admire that in him. It goes back to him recruiting me in junior college. We really didn't even talk about football for the most part. It was still more on a coach-player basis, seeing how I was doing in the games and seeing how I could get better. I always have admired that about Coach Mullen."

On playing in a hostile environment at Mississippi State...
"I hope not."

How hard was it to tell Coach Mullen that you were coming to Auburn?
"It was probably one of the hardest decisions I've made in my recent life. Not just telling him because we had a good relationship, but telling his wife was even harder. That was one of the hardest things. We had such a close relationship. This decision wasn't just merely my decision. I had to clear it with the whole nine yards not just with how I feel. I had to go through so many people to see what they think, whether my family or the closest people toward me. It felt best that my career would be played in Auburn."
