Even the Mississippi Department of Transportation is trolling the B1G
If you’re a B1G fan and can’t take a few jokes — or maybe a few hundred by the end of the season — it may be wise to log off social media for a few months.
Recently, the state of Mississippi has been taking it to the B1G. First, it was the state’s governor who trolled the conference’s decision to back out of a college football season, meanwhile both Ole Miss and Mississippi State are currently moving forward with an SEC schedule. Now, even the Mississippi Department of Transportation is getting in on the jokes.
A photo shared on social media by Tyler Counts shows that a road sign in Mississippi had a message for the people driving on Tuesday morning. And it took a shot at the B1G while making that point.
“Be like the Big 10 – stay hoe and avoid gatherings,” the sign reads. Below is the photo:
Nearly two weeks ago, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves announced some modifications for home football games in the state. And while there will be limited capacity, mask requirements and no tailgating, he still delivered a punch to the B1G.
“I know this will not be popular, but there will be no game day social gatherings around stadiums,” Reeves wrote. “Rallies, parties tailgates. It’s no fun, but it’s what allows the athletes to play. I’d still rather be in the SEC with no tailgates, than the Pac-12 or B1G with no football.”
The B1G was the first Power 5 conference to back out of a fall football schedule. Since then, it’s taken plenty of jokes from SEC country.
