Steve Spurrier Jr. talks indoor practice Monday – 247Sports

 

Mississippi State practiced Monday afternoon in the Palmeiro Building and following the workout selected assistant coaches and playerswere made available.  Following is a question and answer segment with outside receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr.

 

Question:  What are you seeing from the competitiveness of the receivers and corners?

Spurrier:  It’s competitive about every group.  We get after it pretty good in here.  There’s a lot of loud guys.  It’s good, iron sharpens iron.  We talk about that a lot.  We compete at a high pace and we talk a little bit.  Hopefully, we’re getting a little better while we’re doing it.

Question:  Mike Leach called it a three-horse race at one outside spot between Tulu, RaRa and Justin Robinson?

Spurrier:  It’s a three-horse race.  They’ll battle it out.  Two guys will play, though, and we tell them that.  But all three are doing well right now.  First scrimmage Justin Robinson did some good things.  It was encouraging.  But RaRa did some good things and Tulu has a lot of strength and experience.  We’ll keep scrimmaging and keep playing and get to Day 1 and see where we’re at. 

Question:  What have you seen from Justin?

Spurrier:  Justin is an extremely talented young man.  He’s a very gifted player.  He’s just got to be consistent and continue to execute at the highest level he can. 

Question:  Jordan Mosley looks like a different player from spring?

Spurrier:  He and Justin both.  Both are getting real comfortable in what we’re doing.  You’ve got to remember Mosley is just a freshman.  He’s still young playing football.  Both of those guys have done good things.   

Question:  How exciting is it for you to see those three competing?

Spurrier:  It means you’ve got some good players.  If you don’t have much competition, you’re in trouble and coaching the heck out of some guys you hope can play well.  We have some good players.  Ducking has had a good spring and a good preseason.  And then there’s a bunch of guys battling it out.  It holds each one of them accountable to play at a high level.

Question:  How tough is it separating the last 6 or 7 guys?

Spurrier:  It’s hard.  We usually play eight receivers every game.  If one guy doesn’t play very well, he won’t play the next week.  Two guys will always be ready to play.  If one plays a little better, he’ll play a little more.  Like Makai Polk last year.  We’d love some balance where two guys can split a position.  Everyone is encouraged by that, but we’re also holding them accountable by grading out better than the guy next to them.    

Question:  What’s it like seeing your guys make an impact at the next level?

Spurrier:  It’s awesome.  Everybody sees it, everybody watches it.  Everybody knows who they are and how they played.  Everyone recognizes their strengths and what they’re doing at the next level.  As much as we advertise that “State to Sunday,” it’s good to recognize and represent it every day.  Those three guys have done a tremendous job in Week 1.
