Theismann Visits W/Miss. State Team Before Bowl

While gearing up for their first bowl appearance in six years, Mississippi State received a special surprise during Wednesday’s practice:

Joe Theismann Sylvester Croom Mississippi State

Joe Theismann!

The ex-NFL QB, ex-ESPN analyst and semi-successful restauranteur visited the Bulldogs in Memphis as they were preparing for Saturday’s Liberty Bowl contest against Central Florida.

Theismann currently resides in the Tennessee city, and has been friends with MSU coach Sylvester Croom since their days together in the pros. Joe told the ‘Dogs to “relish the moment” of taking part in post-season play and “cherish the friendships” built during their collegiate careers.

Oh, and to boycott “Monday Night Football”. And are they hiring in the MSU media department back in Starkville? (OK, maybe not the last two.)

We’re not sure if Joe also told the Bulldogs to break a leg.
