Mississippi State Athletic Director Greg Byrne wrote this in his weekly letter to MSU fans;
"There has been much written during the past few days regarding last weekend's football recruiting activities. As you may know, this past weekend a very limited number of football student-athletes and prospective student-athletes visited an establishment deemed impermissible by our recruiting rules and regulations.
Coach Mullen and I are disappointed in the poor decisions made by a small number of our student-athletes. We educate our young people repeatedly on the roles they play in representing their teams, the athletic department, the university, and the entire state of Mississippi. They know better.
Our defining principles include compliance with rules and regulations and representing our department in a first-class manner. To that end, we will meet with all of our student-athletes in the near future to reinforce the responsibility they have as representatives of this university to conduct themselves in a first-class way.
Our compliance department has concluded its review of the incident, and determined that the breach of policy was isolated, and will not affect the eligibility or future eligibility of any of those involved. "
