Mississippi State fans should have a new found respect for quarterback Dak Prescott.

It has been known for quite some time now that Prescott is a fine, upstanding young man and represents the Bulldogs with class and dignity, but the way he handled a very bad situation on Monday reenforced that idea.
He turned the other cheek.
Mississippi State football players Dak Prescott, Damian Williams and Torrey Dale were attacked in Panama City on Monday, a source close to the football program said.
M&WN Football first reported the news.
The source said the MSU football players "were jumped" and did not "instigate" the incident.
The Mississippi State women's basketball team is now playing the waiting game.
With their quarterfinal exit from the Southeastern Conference Tournament last Thursday, it will be some time before the Bulldogs can resume the season.
MSU learns of its postseason destination next Monday.
Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray didn't like his team's defensive effort in the five previous games before Saturday's regular season finale.
The Bulldogs lost all five of those games, but bested Missouri at home to end the streak.
MSU held the Tigers to 43 points â€“ the first time to hold a Southeastern Conference opponent under 50 since 2008.
Simply throw strikes.
That is what Wes Johnson is asking of his Wolverine baseball team this season because as the coach says, if they can do that, they can "play with anyone."
