The fans showed up in the form of the third largest crowd ever at Scott Field at Davis Wade Stadium. The team showed up, even if they did have a slight case of the first-game gitters. The coach definitely showed up, giving us a look at the new spread-type offense that we can expect from the Bulldogs with Dan Mullen at the helm.
First, lets all soak in the the highlights of our win over JSU thanks to this highlight reel from MSU Athletics.
Now, here is what everyone else is saying - the morning after.
Rick Cleveland of the Clarion-Ledger talks about how long State fans have waited to see just how "exciting" Dan Mullen was going to make this season for the Bulldogs.
Kyle Veazey says that Chris Relf seized the day - but State will still be a two-QB system. Tyson Lee sat out the second half because of shoulder spasms.
Veazey also has a great article on the return of Jamar Chaney this year. Chaney broke his leg in the 2008 season opener against LaTech and was granted a medical redshirt.
