Mississippi State is passing fall camp with hay-tossing competitions

If you had to guess what football players in Mississippi do to pass some down time, where would tossing bales of hay rank?

That’s what Mississippi State is doing to lighten the mood around fall camp.

No, this isn’t the coolest thing Dan Mullen has done.

That would be awarding walk-on DeAndre Ward with a scholarship and photo he’ll keep forever.

What about the "country javelin?"

And if you lift the hay over your head like a small building and launch it, we’ll just call that "The Nick James."

James is a guy you want to be friends with.
