TALKS BABYSITTING, THE GOOD LIFE AND TEBOWMANIA

View CoverRead All Articles

SI: Most of your career has been short stints in various places. Are you starting to feel settled in Starkville?

DM: I have two small kids. Both of them were born in a hospital in Starkville. So this is our home now. And it's a beautiful place to live.

SI: Have you gotten to spend a lot of time with your new daughter, Breelyn Elisabeth, since she was born in April?

DM: The nice thing about spring is, I can watch all the film I want from home, so I was on babysitting duty. It was the two of us hanging out, watching film. She sleeps a little bit more than I do. She's got the good life.

SI: YOU'RE 3--0 IN THE EGG BOWL. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO WIN THIS YEAR?

DM: HUGE. A LOT OF OUR GUYS ARE FROM MISSISSIPPI. AROUND THE STATE, THAT'S THE GAME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT. OUR SENIORS WANT TO SAY THEY WENT 4--0 AGAINST THE SCHOOL UP NORTH.

SI: You coached Tim Tebow when you were offensive coordinator at Florida. How do feel about Tebowmania?

DM: Tim's such a polarizing character. I love that he gets all the attention because I do think he wants to spread a very positive message, whether it be athletically with the effort he puts into training and playing the game, or as a role model teaching people a positive way to live their life. That's fantastic.
