Fairly large game Thursday night in StarkVegas Starkville as LSU comes to town to play on ESPN.
The University has cancelled all classes for Thursday in order for the fans to work up an appropriate lather pre-game (and yes in the SEC that means beginning tonight). The New York Times has an article about the energy that Mullen has brought to town. Think about that, the New York Times has an article about Mississippi State and Starkville, MS.
Earlier today we saw a few tweets about former players showing up on campus (Fred Smoot in a white Rolls Royce). Clearly there's excitement for this game.
Tonight, Bulldog faithful have turned out in large quantity to participate in the first ever Cowbell Yell (we're pretty sure the gents up in Oxford are having quite a laugh about this right now). Mississippi State AD Scott Stricklin just tweeted that over 9,000 people have shown up so far for the event. Impressive for a Wednesday night.
But moments ago our night just got that much better as Brandon Marcello who covers Mississippi State for the Clarion Ledger tweeted out a link to the video below. Yes, that's head coach Dan Mullen chest bumping Fred Smoot at the Cowbell Yell. Phenomenal. Can't wait for the game tomorrow.
