MSU AD On Newtons: “When You Wrestle With Pigs You’re Gonna Get Dirty”

Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin spoke his mind to ESPN sideline reporter Todd Harris during Saturday’s absolute beatdown of Michigan in the Gator Bowl.

According to Harris, he asked Stricklin about the Cam Newton fiasco and the way the MSU athletic department handled the matter.  Here’s Harris’ verbatim:


“He told me he feels like Mississippi State is on very solid ground.  But one very telling comment that he told me — and I don’t know if this would be a homily or what — but he said, ‘You know, when you wrestle with pigs you’re gonna get dirty, but we feel pretty comfortable with where we are at Mississippi State.’”




Obviously, we’re having to take Harris’ word for what Stricklin told him, but it’s hard to imagine an ESPN reporter flat making something like that up.

So two questions remain:

1.  Why would Stricklin say something so inflammatory to a reporter?  We in the media get tired of politically correct answers, but there’s a reason folks give them.  It’s surprising that an SEC athletic director would so let his guard down.

2.  If Cam and Cecil Newton were pigs, why were MSU coaches wrestling with them in the first place?  And if Newton had signed with State — albeit without taking any cash — would MSU have still reported his father’s request for money?  (No.)  And would Stricklin have compared the Newtons to pigs to an ESPN reporter.  (No.)

Couldn't care less that it came from the State ad. Cecil pimped out his son as if his son was a whore.

This is a simple matter. If the Newton's/Auburn athletics want all of this to go away, the only thing they have to do is ask Cecil Newton to open his books, and show where he got the money to save his church building. Then it would shut up MSU, the SEC office (and fans), the NCAA, along with the world. WE HAVE HEARD ALL THE RUMORS (that Cecil Newton's trucking company got many more loads from Auburn boosters, the money to save the church, and all the he said/she said).... just put it to rest, and shut everyone up. OPEN THE BOOKS. Show that you did nothing wrong. If they can't do that, they are 100% guilty. Why would they hide it? Why not come out and put it to rest?

I'm not suggesting anything. I'm stating in pretty clear English that it's surprising for an AD to make such a strong comment to a reporter. I'm also stating that Stricklin and MSU coaches never had any problems with this particular set of pigs until they inked with Auburn.

Cecil is a pig, as is anyone who would whore their son around for a buck. Are you trying to argue that Cecil is not a Pig or that the MSU AD is jacked up for calling a Pig a Pig?

Yeah because there was nobody asking for money before Auburn came into the picture. He was a lock to State then all of a sudden he's all Auburn. Cecil is dirty. Cecil is a liar. Cecil is a pimp. Cam is dirty by association and he's also a liar. In one interview he is quoted as saying he let his dad make the decision. Then he goes on ESPN and says the decision was all his. He's a liar. Liars lie. It's what they do. Auburn (or somebody associated with Auburn) is complicit and thus they're guilty too. You can polish a turd but it's still a piece of sh**
