Mississippi State’s Dan Mullen just changed the game for any one reporting on his football team. When a reporter started to ask Richt about a possible injury, he went full-on defensive mode:
“I expect everybody to play, and I’ll never comment on an injury again because you guys obviously don’t need me to comment on injuries because you know more than I do. You report more than I would ever say, for the benefit of young people, not so you can get a scoop out, and their futures. We’ll never comment on an injury again in this program again so please don’t ever ask.”
Yikes. That could have been handled better.
