Starkville Rolls Out the Welcome Mat

Cam’s on the way
Hide ya kids
Hide ya wife

Strange Brew Coffeehouse 1, Auburn 0. The ball’s in your court, Toomer’s Coffee Roasters.

    I strongly disagree, I think Mississippi State is going to be second or third in the West this year. Dan Mullen has his act together, and with an Auburn team that gave up 26 early to Arky State, I look for MSU to do some scoring. Also, Auburn had Cam in for most of the game, and only put 55 on the board, seems like mop up duty should have gotten the barn to 55.
