Mississippi State distributed carries and catches to an incredible 16 different players on Saturday against Stephen F. Austin, and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy isn’t in a hurry for any one player to develop into a first option. Getsy told the media he’s happy seeing the ball going to so many players.
Running backs coach Charles Huff is of a similar mindset, pleased that all four of his group were able to make a positive contribution in the win.
Senior quarterback Nick Fitzgerald spoke for the first time since his suspension was announced, and it was obvious he’s ready to put the past behind him and move forward to this weekend. When asked if he could go into the details of his suspension, Fitzgerald only replied “I’m good.”
All in all, coaches and players feel in this weekend’s matchup with Kansas State, the offense will have to be very fundamentally sound to be successful. With a tough Wildcat defense in front of them, the onus will be on the Bulldog offense to be sharper than they were a week ago in their debut performance.
