Prime time journalism Larry. People have been calling it Starkvegas since before I was born. It's just a cool name. Not a reference comparing Starkville to Las Vegas.

They do the same thing with Nashville. They call Nashville- Nashvegas. Adding "vegas" to the end of any name makes me go a big rubbery one.

Humorous nickname that invokes irony. Been used for years. Guess some folk don't follow SEC football much.

I just don't get it. How does Vegas fit into the equation? There is absolutely nothing in Starksville.

It's like Vegas but with more Mobile Homes and Less Teeth.

Ummm, MSU students were calling it that when I first moved there in '89. Not like its anything new.
