Joe Moorhead has definitely captivated the Mississippi State fan base since being hired to replace Dan Mullen at the end of November, winning them over with his promise for great things for the Bulldogs program and bringing in a solid recruiting class.
The lifetime Northerner – the furthest south he had coached prior to coming to Starkville was Georgetown in Washington, D.C. –, Moorhead is finding his transition to life below the Mason-Dixon Line quite appealing, and it starts with the help of some food.
“I’ve learned very quickly that you can get fried chicken and biscuits at almost every gas station in the state,” Moorhead told College Sports Now. “I love it!”
While fried chicken and biscuits from a gas station sounds appealing, we are wondering what other southern delicacies Moorhead has yet to try during his first few months in Starkville. Has he experienced the Waffle House yet? Has someone introduced him to collard greens and fried okra? What about grits?
Moorhead will eventually learn about all the food available in the Magnolia State, but he was hired to help continue the success that the Bulldogs achieved under Mullen. With a talented roster coming back, expectations are going to be high for Mississippi State this fall.
If Moorhead can get the Bulldogs off to a great start, he might find that that fried chicken and biscuits will be complimentary.
