Dan Mullen, 2Pac fan? And Taylor Swift? Some – interesting – music choices for Mississippi State coach

What makes Dan Mullen a successful play-caller? You can’t guess what’s coming next. But maybe it has something to do with his music preferences?

The Mississippi State coach has, shall we say, an eclectic mix of musical acts on his playlist.

During Mullen’s discussion of the Bulldogs’ coming game this weekend against LSU in his news conference Monday, the conversation drifted toward music – and that’s when things got interesting.

So, you’ve got gangsta rap from NWA and 2Pac together with … Taylor Swift. It’s a counterintuitive list, to put it mildly, for a 45-year-old white guy from the Northeast.

Of course, Mullen probably won’t be able to hear any of that playlist Saturday, when Davis Wade Stadium turns up to 100 percent cowbell for LSU’s arrival.
