Louisiana Tech coach Sonny Dykes, recently told the Monroe News-Star
that he didn’t see a difference between the players on Mississippi State and his own team...
“Last year we played Mississippi State, and I swear to you there was no difference in our players and theirs,” Dykes told the Monroe News-Star. “I was shocked. There was no difference. They might’ve had a little more depth, but across the board our players were about as good as theirs.”
How did MSU coach Dan Mullen respond?
“I guess if the players are equal we must have better coaches here at Mississippi State since we won,” Mullen told the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, MS, by phone. “But they are a very good football team. Sonny does a great job with their program.”
