Koenning, Smith and tight ends talk

Simply reading Les Koenning’s words wouldn’t do him justice. Mississippi State’s offensive coordinator sat down with the assorted media today, talking about everything from red zone drills to quarterbacks acting like winged animals.

Watch the video for an entertaining (and informative) 12 minutes, plus video of senior receiver Chris Smith (expertly done yesterday by MSU relations) and tight ends Marcus Green and Brandon Hill.

A few highlights: Koenning said junior quarterback Tyler Russell was occasionally slow in red zone and goal line situations, which they worked on today, but he didn’t sound overly concerned.

He also said redshirt freshman running back Josh Robinson is “getting better” at learning pass protection and the playbook, something he struggled with in the spring.

Smith, a high school teammate of Russell’s, had some encouraging thoughts if you believe in the psychic ability of the senior receiver. He said this year’s MSU team reminds him strongly of his and Russell’s high school team their senior year. Why is it good that an SEC program seems like a high school team? Meridian won the state championship that year, beating powerhouse South Panola, ending their long unbeaten streak.
