On Saturday morning, Mississippi State’s football stadium had a new look.
There are cameras all around the stadium. Those will obviously be looked at. pic.twitter.com/voIbbrfhW9— Michael Bonner (@MikeBBonner) December 17, 2016
“Fail State” is a play on the school’s “Hail State” motto. “Hotty Toddy” is an Ole Miss cheer. That alone doesn’t prove an Ole Miss fan did this, but whoever did it made sure to use plenty of Rebels language.

“Go Rebs” is obvious. “HYDR” stands for “hell yeah, damn right,” another part of the “Hotty Toddy” cheer.
Officials had no comment so far, according to The Clarion-Ledger.
Cleanup underway. I'm sure this is exactly how he planned on spending his Saturday morning. pic.twitter.com/G4D31kKLdD— Michael Bonner (@MikeBBonner) December 17, 2016
This isn’t a new thing for college football. Last year, a Michigan dental frat vandalized a Michigan State statue, for example. Yes, a dental frat.
This here is my favorite thing ever written about the Egg Bowl rivalry, a rivalry that is — at very least — being referenced by this vandal.
