Mullen: 'When you're in the SEC West, you're just trying to win games'

A hot topic all off season for the media when talking to SEC coaches has been the possible switch from a 8 game conference schedule to a 9 game conference slate.

Dan Mullen isn't as concerned with that as some other coaches seem to be. As Mullen explained to Tim Brando yesterday during a radio interview, there are more pressing things to worry about when you're competing in the SEC West.

Things like winning ball games.

"I don't give a whole lot of thought to it. To me, when you're in the SEC West, you're just trying to find a way to win games week in and week out and not dream about what might and might not happen."

Mullen also shared an experience he had in the spring that he hopes he never has to go through again.

"One thing that I don't want to try to do is go through the fall with one scholarship quarterback. That will test your patience on a daily basis, especially when the trainers come up one day and tell you that our one quarterback has a fever and won't be able to go today." Mullen explained

"So I looked around the room and said 'Well I guess everyone can go home...we can't practice'. So we bumped practice back a day since we can probably use a quarterback. It makes things a little easier out there on the field."
