Mississippi Coffeehouse Takes Shot at Auburn, Cam Newton

Those of who you who are familiar with the Cam Newton pay-for-play scandal know exactly why Mississippi State fans hate Auburn now even more than they used to.  In fact, it is believed that Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen is the one who leaked the Newton information to begin with.  Needless to say, fans still have not gotten over the Newton situation.

As the Bulldogs prepare to take on Auburn this weekend, restaurants and local establishments in Starkville are doing their part to pump up the community.  Check out this Starkville coffeehouse Auburn sign, courtesy of Twitter user @stuartreese:

If you remember, $180,000 was reportedly the amount Cecil Newton was seeking in exchange for the services of his son.  Although we cannot confirm that as Cam did not agree to a lie detector test even when offered $1 million, Bulldog nation obviously is still holding a grudge.  Perhaps if this coffeehouse sign goes viral enough it would be worth $180,000 for Auburn to put something on it.

The Strange Brew coffeehouse has the benefit of being able to get their message across without paying for advertising.  Over the last few years, billboards have become a popular landing spot for subtle and not-so-subtle shots being fired in the college football world.  Blue and Maze nation was pretty cruel to Charlie Weis using a billboard in South Bend and even Maker’s Mark got in on the fun by ragging on Michigan back in 2009.  More recently, Michigan fans burned Jim Tressel for his fallout with Ohio State, but Jim has surely gotten used to it by now. Everyone’s a comedian.

    Miss St had their best season in years. Yet, they still came in 5th place in the SEC West as well as not being able to have a winning percentage in the SEC.

    Classic Miss St….
