Live-Blogging Dan Mullen

3:56 p.m. CT -- Why TSUN? "Adds to our rivalry a bit." "I have got a lot of thanks from people of Mississippi for winning that game last year."

3:52 p.m. CT -- I believe that was the third "School Up North" reference.

3:50 p.m. CT -- Question on how "the second year [of coaching] is usually the one where we see the most improvement." No, not necessarily. Perhaps I should spend some time demolishing that meme.

3:49 p.m. "You give me 11 Charles Mitchells on defense, we're going to have a national championship defense." You will also likely have a formation that violates the rules of the game.

3:42 p.m. CT -- Still no Tim Tebow questions. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!?

3:41 p.m. CT -- Every fan's favorite words: "If we do play two quarterbacks ..."

3:35 p.m. CT -- Dan Mullen is a brave man. Responding to Nick Saban's comments that the spread might make it harder to prepare quarterbacks for the NFL: "I've coached the spread and I've had a lot more first-round quarterbacks than he's had in his whole career." Unsaid: That includes Saban's career in Miami.

3:33 p.m. CT -- Sees ticket sales and spring game attendance as fans buying in. Either that, or it's the restoration of a baseline of hope after the long, nuclear winter of despair that was the Sylvester Croom Era.

3:30 p.m. CT -- Facebook and Twitter. "I'm comfortable in using it." He at least called them "Twitter" and "Facebook" later during his response, instead of "Twibook" and "Fatter." Has stopped recruiting a player because of their Facebook page. And you thought there was no harm in playing Farmville.

3:25 p.m. CT -- "Chris Relf is a completely different player than he was last season." Mississippi State fans hope that doesn't mean he's morphed into Wes Carroll.

3:22 p.m. CT -- "The School Up North." That's one.

3:20 p.m. CT -- "For the next ten seconds, you can ring your cowbells."
