It's a crisp, early October morning on the campus of Mississippi State and this weekend's opponent, the Troy Trojans, are nowhere to be found. The team made it to town late last evening in advance of today's game (3 p.m., SEC Network), yet all signs appear to show that they left in the dead of night without any prior warning.
While that has taken place, a large, mysterious wooden horse has appeared on the field at Davis Wade Stadium. The event staff is currently working on strategies to move the horse out of the stadium; however, the thought is that there's not much rush to get it out with a game seemingly in doubt for today. Despite its presence, MSU is scheduled to make a more relaxed and unguarded appearance in its normal pregame routine in the next several hours.
We'll bring you more here at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls when we know more about the situation. Until then this has been cristilmethod lying in wait for For Whom the Cowbell Tolls news channel 12.
