Kentucky Football — Starkville

Starkville—by John Huang

The home to the Mississippi State University Bulldogs is rather stark, much more so than any of the other traditional small-town SEC hamlets you might encounter. There’s a Matty’s Starkvegas Café here and The Little Dooey Barbecue joint, but not much else. Supposedly Tee Ball was invented in Starkville, All-Pro wide receiver Jerry Rice calls Starkville home, and country music legend Johnny Cash was once arrested for public drunkenness and spent a night in the Starkville city jail.
