FILE - At left, in an April 16, 2015, file photo, Mississippi State White squad quarterback Nick Fitzgerald (7) attempts to pass against the Maroon squad during the second half of a spring NCAA college football game, in Starkville. At right, in the same game, Mississippi State White squad quarterback Damian Williams (11) throws a pass against the Maroon squad. It's not Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen's style to reveal much about his depth chart before the first game, so it came as quite a surprise when he announced a starting quarterback during this week's press conference. His choice: Nick Williams. Only one problem, no such player exists on the roster. Can't say the coach doesn't have a sense of humor. The joke was a combination of the names of the two quarterbacks, junior Damian Williams and sophomore Nick Fitzgerald, who have worked their way to the top of Mississippi State's depth chart.
