Talk about a good idea gone wrong! Folks at Mississippi State thought it would be a great idea to harness the power of social media and tried to encourage fans to tweet #Fight4MSU. Those that did would see their tweets on the video board during the game.
All your tweets using #Fight4MSU will be shown on the video board tonight, so tweet away!

Simple enough, right? You would think so, but apparently whoever thought of this idea didn't quite think it out entirely before tweeting that every--not just some, but every--tweet would be displayed on the video board at some point during the game.
Unless they wanted stuff like this to be displayed during a nationally televised game:
I've made a swimming pool out of a tarp and the back of a pickup truck. #Fight4MSU

Mississippi State’s equipment team just had an “oops” moment. Either that or Bulldogs tight end Artimas Samuel did something to really tick them off.
Samuel’s jersey for tonight’s game against Kentucky unfortunately reads “Sameul” – KSTV’s Thomas Beisner spotted the blunder.
Mississippi State matching crazy helmets with jerseys where spelling doesn’t matter...
Yesterday during his talking, but NOT discussing injuries, with the media portion of his day, Dan Mullen said that he and his players treat Kentucky, who is Mississippi State's permanent East opponent, as "a little bit" of a rivalry game. While that's probably a stretch because KENTUCKY FOOTBALL, I hope both teams treat it as such tonight, as it is a terrible...
The Kentucky football team hasn't really been the first to try new things when it comes to their uniform designs, but the Wildcats have unveiled a new look for the way college football uniforms are marketed these days.
On Thursday night, the Wildcats will show off their new thigh-pads showcasing the logo on the left thigh pad with the player number on the right.

While calling the Kentucky Wildcats-Mississippi State Bulldogs game on Thursday night, Rece Davis made a joke about Mark May losing weight. In an attempt to follow up the joke, David Pollack called Mark May “tan,” making for an extremely awkward few seconds during ESPN’s broadcast. Probably not the best use of judgement on Pollack’s part.
Notes and statistics from Kentucky's game Thursday night at Mississippi State. The Wildcats posted 325 yards in total offense, their highest total in SEC play this season.
Mississippi State Bulldogs punter Devon Bell did exactly what he was not supposed to do: Fumble a perfectly good snap out of the end zone for a safety.

For whatever reasons beating Kentucky doesn’t easily for the Dan Mullen and Mississippi State. Yet win they do, if this 28-22 victory demanded a Bulldog defensive stand that was just fine by the coach. “Hoooo-eeee!” he said. “We keep everybody tuned in right to the last minute, don’t we?”
It only took Mississippi State five plays to get on the scoreboard tonight against Kentucky. On 3rd-and-6 from their own 40-yard line, Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott was able to escape pressure and find his tight end, Malcolm Johnson, down the field for a 60-yard touchdown. There wasn’t even anyone else in the picture when Johnson caught the ball.
Former Florida Gator Jesse Palmer stated that he thinks Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott is a better running quarterback than Tim Tebow and Alex Smith.
Thursday night will be the first time in Mark Stoops’ career as a head coach that he does not face a team ranked in the Top 20. That doesn’t mean it will be any easier for his 1-5 Wildcats to walk away with the win on the road. Mississippi State used to be a game that Kentucky fans looked forward to. The Bulldogs always seemed to share the cellar of the SEC, giving the ‘Cats...
