Dylan Favre to transfer from Mississippi State

Where this Favre is concerned, at least, there doesn't appear to be any waffling over the next stage of his career.

Mississippi State has announced that backup quarterback Dylan Favre, nephew of none other than Brett Favre, is transferring out of the program and will not be available for the team's Music City Bowl showdown with Wake Forest.  

Though Favre saw extensive snaps against Arkansas in the Bulldogs' Nov. 19 defeat to the Razorbacks, his playing time otherwise had been sporadic -- he attempted just 10 passes in MSU's 11 other games -- and had already taken to Twitter after the LSU game to ask for "an opportunity." Favre also  made a de facto announcement regarding his Bulldog future on the site this past Friday:

Favre would later confirm that he will be transferring to nearby Pearl River Community College.

“Dylan decided to transfer and we wish him the best,” said Bulldog head coach Dan Mullen. “He has our full support with everything. He did a great job for us during his time here.” 

Favre was a Parade All-American as a high school senior in 2009, when he threw for 5,589 yards and 63 touchdowns. But his 5'10" frame helped limit his recruiting profile (relatively speaking) and Mullen was the only SEC coach to make him an offer. Where Favre might look to transfer after his year at PRCC is yet to be determined.

"Hopefully, some (college) coaches will like my talents like coach Dan Mullen did," Favre said

could make for a good replacement for austin davis at southern, but i guess we will have to wait a year to see, but if you were to guess where he would end up after playing for PRC, it would have to be southern, his name alone should have the athletic dept interested, but at PRC has had air mcnair jr on their squad the past 2 seasons, he had committed to southern before last season, but academically he couldnt enroll, so he decided to go to PRC first, mcnair should be at southern this coming season (possibly as a redshirt) so if favre chooses USM after he is done playing at PRC, we could have a nice qb-wr combination of favre to mcnair, so im definitely looking forward to the future here at southern, even without fedora, we won before he got here, we will win once he is gone, SMTTT

I don't know who to blame for this article. CBS for writing it... or me for clicking it.
"This just in: Average college QB doesn't get much playing time!"

Me: who cares? I would think they jus.... wait WHAT did that say FAVRE!?!? MUST READ.

I'm a sheep.
