That is what Dan Mullen has created with a Gator Bowl win in his second season and most importantly two straight wins over Ole Miss (aka "the school up North").
The Jackson Clarion Ledger reports that some Bulldog fans may not be able to get season tickets for this year as the school is expecting a "a renewal rate expected to be above 95 percent, senior associate athletic director Mike Richey said."
This new excitement has caused Athletic Director Scott Stricklin to write in his weekly column to Miss State fans about a "long-term goal for our football stadium".

Stricklin envisions "80,000 seats in our stadium"
80,000 cow bells ringing.
