Honeymoon over: Mississippi State fans done with Joe Moorhead after loss at Tennessee
Joe Moorhead’s record at Mississippi State fell to 11-8 with a disappointing 20-10 loss at Tennessee. The Volunteers entered the game 1-4, without a win over an FBS team in 2019. It’s safe to say Moorhead’s honeymoon in Starkville is over with MSU falling to UT.
Moorhead would be to wise to avoid searching his name on social media right now because it’s a bloodbath. Hail State Twitter is done with him and media members are speculating that Moorhead might be packing his bags for Rutgers before too long.
Here’s a sample of what people are saying on Twitter:
Mississippi State’s coaching staff HAD TWO WEEKS to prepare for this game. Just the latest indictment on Joe Moorhead’s inability to prepare, inspire and lead a team.
We saw glimpses of this last year, but having a championship defense often masked it.
Joe has to go. #HailState

Matt Luke has been a better head coach than Joe Moorhead. I’m being dead serious. Think about this. Matt Luke has been a better head coach than joe Moorhead

Hopefully Joe Moorhead will be getting a pink slip soon! You were definitely the better team.

Don't worry Mississippi State fans…Joe Moorhead is gonna look at the film and decide to start Tommy Stevens against LSU and suspend/bench our best players the first half.

Joe Moorhead lost to Tennessee. Miss State may wave his buyout if RU wants him.

Every bit of this loss is on Joe Moorhead. Every single bit of it.

Well I’ll join Bob from Bogue Chitto in saying Joe Moorhead is not a good head coach. I’ll bet I’m not alone.

I formally denounce Joe Moorhead as Mississippi State head coach. Get that guy outta Starkville. What a embarrassing season.

Firing a coach in year 2 is a good way to scare off potential candidates and end up hiring down. But at this point is that a risk worth taking instead another year of Joe Moorhead running the program further in the ground? Think it might be time to start having that conversation.

.@JohnCohenAD if Joe Moorhead is the coach on Monday you’ll lose the fan base just as much as he has.

I don’t think Joe Moorhead is a very good head coach. His tenure at MSU might be a short one.

You’re giving state too much credit. Joe Moorhead is by far the worst head coach in the sec.

Get out, Joe Moorhead

Goodness. Joe Moorhead is going to go to Rutgers just for self-preservation. https://t.co/8TEtGcBavq

Remember when Mississippi State fans thought Joe Moorhead would be an improvement over Dan Mullen? Good times.
