The Belly of the Beast:
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 night on the teevee (FALL DOWN A WELL AND STAY THERE, NBC, FOR THIS PARKS AND REC HIATUS BS).
But, whether or not Mississippi State/Kentucky is a rivalry (lol no), it's important we examine the forgettable, uninspiring, and generally uncompetitive nature of this game while Mullen has been at Mississippi State. First, and most importantly, because that's a good place to start, the results over the last four years:
2009 MSU 31, Kentucky 24
2010 MSU 24, Kentucky 17
2011 MSU 28, Kentucky 16
2012 MSU 27, Kentucky 14

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?”
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.

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.
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...
This edition of AllWildcats.com GAMEDAY brings you everything you need to know about tonight's Kentucky versus Mississippi State matchup in Starkville.
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.
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.
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.

Yeah, the World Series is on but isn’t it more interesting when a terrible SEC team takes on another terrible SEC team and wears thigh pads with logos? That’s what I thought! Check these UK themed thigh pads out. They are taking the uniform game to the next level. If only they can win a game or two. If the Kentucky Wildcats beat Mississippi State tonight, Dan Mullen is officially...
Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen came to the postgame press conference, sat in his chair, adjusted the microphone and then let out a strange noise that was somewhere between a scream and sigh of relief.
The Bulldogs had picked up their first Southeastern Conference victory of the season.
But it wasn't easy at all.
