But it happens at Mississippi State:
Tyler Russell has a secret or two he’d rather not share.
Mississippi State’s starting quarterback has developed a few signals to communicate with his receivers that even coach Dan Mullen and offensive coordinator Les Koenning have not been clued in on.
“Well, it goes back to what coach Mullen says about turning the offense over to the older guys,” said Russell, a junior. “He’s not going to be on the field, so he really doesn’t see what we see when we’re on the field.”
Mullen asked Russell to take control of the team in the offseason, and Russell has apparently answered the call.
