Dog's DT Cox mulls NFL option | Clarion Ledger

Cox earned his fourth SEC defensive lineman of the week award this season Monday after he recorded five tackles (two for loss), a forced fumble and a quarterback hurry in MSU's 31-3 win over Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl.

Cox has recorded 12 1/2 tackles for loss (11 in the last six games) and four sacks this season. ESPN analyst Todd McShay lists him as a top-20 player in the 2012 draft.

Mullen still talks MSU, without dispelling PSU | Clarion Ledger

"Great," Mullen said, in a wry tone Tuesday afternoon. "I'm sure I'm on everybody's (list). Am I right? Every time a job comes open, doesn't my name come up? So, you know our policy. We talk Mississippi State football. That's all we ever talk about."

Speaking at a regularly scheduled end-of-the-season gathering with reporters Tuesday, Mullen declined to say whether he or his agent, Rick Diamond, had been contacted by Penn State or other schools.

Dan Mullen deflects Penn State report | SBNation

Mississippi St. Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen, who's been linked by ESPN's Joe Schad to the soon-to-be-open Penn St. Nittany Lions job, didn't say much at his regular Tuesday press conference that will get the hounds off the scent. He may have also requested a spot on the lists of presumed candidates for every other school that needs a new coach. If that was a real thing, it would be an excellent way to troll your friends. Watch as your buddy opens his front door, only to be greeted by a horde of beat writers!
