Mike Leach and the Mississippi State Bulldogs are in Atlanta for SEC Media Days on Tuesday, but one notable player isn’t with them.

The Bulldog players who made the trip to Atlanta were DT Jaden Crumedy, LB Nathaniel Watson and WR Austin Williams. QB Will Rogers wasn’t among the player contingent for Mississippi State.

Why did Leach make that decision? He explained that there will be plenty of time for media members to speak with Rogers later this season:

Leach rarely brings quarterbacks with him to Media Days, dating back to his time as the head coach at Texas Tech and continuing at Washington State and Mississippi State.

Rogers is still a big topic of discussion this week in Atlanta, so reporters are still getting their questions in, it seems.
