We are ever so close to the start of the college football season and ever so close to the end of this offseason’s edition of Mascot Mondays. This week, we are at Phil Steele’s number 39 in his preseason Top 50 poll for 2011 and the Mississippi State Bulldogs. There is, of course, another Bulldog team in the SEC and much like the other team, Mississippi State has both a live and a costumed mascot. Bully’s the name, and mascotting is both of their games. I am going to dig deep and find the Bully bone of history buried deep in Mississippi State’s backyard.
