So Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Stricklin is soliciting suggestions from bulldog fans regarding banners to place inside DWS:
@stricklinMSU: Need help from creative Bulldog fans. Looking for suggestions for 6 new banners on west side of #DavisWade. Details tomorrow at @HailState.
My first thought was "if you have to ask for suggestions about what to say on your banners, you probably don't need banners." I mean, outside of the 1941 SEC Championship and 1998 Western Division Championship, what else is there to brag about if you're MSU?
But in a gesture of good will toward our sister school down in Oktibbeha County, I propose we help them out with a few suggestions of our own rather than make fun of Mr. Stricklin's tweet.
So, I'll start...
"2000 Snow Bowl Champs!"
"Last 4 outta 5 Egg Bowl Champs!"
"Bible verse tweetin' Champs!"
"2013 Chris Jones Sweepstakes Champs!"
"2010 Cam Newton Sweepstakes Co-champs (2nd place)!"
"Got Jesus? Mullens do. Just ask his Twitter!"
"The Junction: The #1 tailgating championship venue in Mississippi not called the Grove!"
I'll even go a step further for Strickland and suggest a new revenue stream for the athletic department. Sell sponsorships for the banners...
"#1 Crootin' class in Mississippi if you consider how bad TSUN cheats! brought to you by MustangClassifieds.com: your source for used Mustangs and Mustang parts"
Any other suggestions?
