Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf was the better of the two quarterbacks who faced off in the Gator Bowl as he outshone Denard Robinson from Michigan.  Relf threw for 281 yards and three scores while also rushing for 30 yards and a score.
Relf has developed into quite the efficient and dangerous trigger man for the Dan Mullen offense and should be even better next year. Sun, Jan 2, 2011 05:30:00 PM

Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf has been much maligned this year but when his team needed him, he stepped in an overtime loss to Arkansas.  Relf passed for 227 yards while rushing for 97 yards and a score.

Relf is not going to blow anyone away but he has been playing well enough to get wins and to make other players around him better.  Relf has limited fantasy value.

After suffering a blow to the head that knocked him out of the LSU game, Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf is fine and is starting against Georgia.

Relf will get the start but Tyler Russell will get his snaps.  Neither is a good option right now.

As many expected, there was not much offense between LSU and Mississippi State, but LSU had the upper hand.  Not only did they limit Dan Mullen's squad to just seven points but they also picked off quarterbacks Tyler Russell and Chris Relf a combined five times.

LSU 's defense will need to continue to carry the load until the offense shows up.

While the Mississippi State offense looked high octane last week, it certainly was not firing on all cylinders as the Bulldogs opened conference play against Auburn.  Quarterback Chris Relf took the bulk of the snaps as the team only mustered 246 total yards and put up a meager 14 points in the loss.  

It looks like the offense is still in need of some tuning but we have seen how dangerous it can be when it is humming. Chad Bumphis was heavily involved again, but couldn't manage to make a breakout play against Auburn.

Chris Relf has won the battle to be named the starter at quarterback when Mississippi State takes on Memphis this weekend.  Relf was in a hotly contested race with Tyler Russell but you can expect both quarterbacks to play.

Relf has improved as a passer and is a dangerous runner so look for decent fantasy numbers in Dan Mullen's offense.

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen says that quarterback Chris Relf, does not have an injured finger.  Linebacker K.J. Wright told reporters, “He’s just got a little hurt finger, but he should be out there Saturday.”

No word on who will start, but both Relf and Tyler Russell will play.

When Dan Mullen was talking about whether there was any separation between quarterbacks Chris Relf and Tyler Russell, Mullen said "each of them have their strengths in certain things and I’ll see certain things out of both of them that are really good, and you’ll see both of them make some glaring mistakes still as young players will in their development."  Mullen also mentioned that Dylan Favre is making a push for playing time.

It appears as if there could be a quarterback platoon coming out of Starksville, which makes this a position to avoid on draft day.

At Mississippi State's practice, some eyes were on the nephew of NFL quarterback Brett Favre.  Dylan Favre was named Mississippi Mr. Football last year and had quarterback Chris Relf saying "For him to be that small, I think he's got a lot of heart".

While the time is now for Relf and possibly Tyler Russell, expect Favre to make an impact in years to come.

In this video by ESPN blogger Chris Low, Chris Relf is projected to be the starter for the Mississippi State Bulldogs with redshirt freshman Tyler Russell seeing some playing time as well.

By most accounts it seems as if this is an open battle with Russell the better passer but with Relf the better runner and most experienced.  Expect Relf to start but Russell to eventually take away the job with Relf still coming in as a runner.

Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf said "a lot of people underestimate my throwing ability. But this season, they'll see." 

Relf, at 6'5" and about 250-lbs. brings and intriguing blend of arm strength and running ability. Though his fantasy production is directly tied to the Mississippi State offense, an improving unit though one that's still a ways from explosive.

Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf out dueled his competition Tyler Russell in the Bulldogs recent Maroon and White spring game, but it seems given the strengths of each quarterback that a two-man rotation heading into the fall is likely.

Relf's strength is no doubt his scrambling ability; he was the second leading rusher last season for the Bulldogs. Russell seems to have the wider skill set and higher ceiling. With coach Dan Mullen utilizing a two quarterback rotation at nearly every stop on his coaching tour thus far, we wouldn't be surprised to see another split in Starkville in the fall.

Mississippi State conducted their second spring scrimmage on Saturday and the quarterbacks pitched in for three scores.  Chris Relf completed 12-of-23 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception.  Tyler Russell was 12-of-26 for 120 yards and a score.  Russell also added a rushing touchdown.

What intrigues us the most about Relf is his ability to run; he had 49 yards on 12 carries on the day.  He seems to fit coach Dan Mullen's system, but Russell is widely considered the better passer.  In the end, it looks like a quarterback rotation in Starkville for 2010.

The Clarion Ledger's Kyle Veazey reports that Mississippi State quarterbacks Tyler Russell and Chris Relf "looked sharp." Coach Dan Mullen said "they're going to get better every day."

Whoever emerges as the starter will be a definite fantasy factor, particularly against non-conference foes.
