As the Mississippi State football team looks for its new head coach, Zac Selmon and a piece of pie are going to give MSU fans something to talk about.
This coaching search for the Mississippi State football team has been weird because it feels like nobody really knows anything. I definitely don’t know much. I’ve spent some time with my eyes on the skies, but that’s about all I can contribute.
But there’s been a ton of chaos on social media from time to time.
And that included Mississippi State’s athletics director tweeting a picture of a pie. But not just any pie. It’s a picture of a sweet potato pie!
Oh. But look at this!
HE EXPERTLY TAGGED HIS LOCATION!! HE TAGGED A HEAD COACH!! WHAT CAN IT MEAN?!
I don’t know. You don’t know. It’s a piece of pie.
This feels kinda like NBA twitter. Just an expertly timed and placed tweet with a pie and a coach and a location.
Oh, and by the way, he deleted the picture. And then tweeted it again. With the exact same location and tagging situation.
Mississippi State football coaching search: Did MSU’s AD just drop a hint about Bulldogs’ next coach?
It seems likely that he and Beamer would be pretty close from their respective times at OU together. Plus Beamer has ties to Starkville. Selmon posting after midnight. It’s late. I don’t know what’s going on.
Shane Beamer, by the way, has had his name attached to this coaching search by various individuals.
I don’t know what’s going on. Again, more than likely, this is just a piece of pie. It seems like Beamer probably isn’t involved here. It looks like a pretty good piece of pie, actually.
Something I do know is that I’ve been tracking every single flight that has come in and out of Starkville for over a week now. I also figured it’d be wise to keep track of the destinations those planes came from, where they were headed next over the next day or two, and if there were any interesting corresponding flights elsewhere to what might actually be a central location.
Like, say, Richmond, Virginia, for example.
A plane may or may not have left Starkville headed towards Richmond this evening. Similarly, a charter company helicopter may or may not have left Lynchburg, Virginia and headed to Richmond earlier this afternoon.
The hypothetical flight from Starkville may or may not have been originally slated to land closer to 8:45 p.m. CT while the hypothetical helicopter may or may not have been slated to land in Richmond somewhere around 4:58 p.m. CT.
Whether or not something happened in Richmond, I don’t know.
Does this pie mean anything? I have no clue. Is this some sort of conspiratorial piece of pie being used as a smokescreen to cover up the possibility that Selmon isn’t actually in Starkville but rather he’s in Richmond?
My answer: let’s look at the most likely scenario here. This is just a piece of pie. Maybe Selmon likes eating midnight snacks.
This coaching search is a ton of fun and also probably responsible for my brain melting. Kudos to Selmon for pulling this off with a ton of secrecy. Just brilliant leadership and execution on his part.
Because, more likely than not, this is just a piece of pie. It just happens to be a piece of pie that MSU fans will extensively talk about.
