Mark Richt, summing up his team’s 10-4 season, tampers down the praise: “… I still think that our guys had a good year, not a great year.”
Dan Mullen, on the other hand, sounds pretty impressed with Mississippi State’s 7-6 year, despite two fewer wins than in 2010, failure to meet his preseason goal of winning the West, etc.:
“You know what,” said Mullen, “to me, it’s a great season.”
Hey, say it enough and you probably come to believe it.
