STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - College football coaches speak two distinct languages. 

One is coach speak, which we all understand.  The other is x's and o's, which can sound like Greek to the untrained ear.

Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead let the media into his world this afternoon at his chalk talk presentation.

Moorhead went into great detail breaking down the principles of run plays and passing plays.

"The big thing is that we don't create a new offense every week," said Moorhead.  "We've got a ton of banked reps where we've done it in spring ball, we've done it in fall camp and we've done it during the season."

Moorhead also spent some time discussing how he, and his coaching staff game plan for an upcoming opponent.
