Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen has made an interesting fashion choice during the Bulldogs’ opener against South Alabama today.
He’s wearing shorts on the sideline, which is a selection you don’t see often, especially during a time when you usually want to put your best foot forward to start the year.
Perhaps he stained his khakis during breakfast this morning? Perhaps he didn’t get the memo that casual Friday was yesterday? What a mystery.
Anyway, Twitter was made for a moment like this. Of course, there’s no shortage of commentary about Mullen’s shorts.
Check out some of the highlights below:
Is there any better signal to USA that Dan Mullen thinks of this like a practice game than wearing shorts?

So Dan Mullen is wearing shorts??? Not a very good look from an SEC coach.

Dan Mullen coaching in shorts. My man. Only wardrobe item missing is a pair of rainbow sandals.
