Upon his arrival at Mississippi State head coach, Joe Moorhead seemed like an odd fit. Moorhead is a north-easterner that did not have a Southeastern Conference background. Additionally, Hail State is quite rural and southern in its culture. Moorhead has not embarrassed himself but has also not moved the needle. Last week’s College Football betting loss at Tennessee was a prime example. By contrast, the LSU Tigers are a top tier college football playoff contender. Head coach Ed Orgeron has confounded his critics by developing one of the top offenses in the country. The discombobulated offensive play has left the Bayou.
