Hail State…also the Structural Integrity of that Tailgating Chair

This weekend Mississippi State and Dan Mullen, hungry for a win, finally roke free from the futility that was not being able to beat anyone in the SEC that wasn’t coached by Houston Nutt at the time (my initial thought was that Mullen was just going to wait it out until another SEC team hired Houston), and satiated themselves with a win of bountiful proporations against Auburn...

John L. Smith: Arkansas Razorbacks' Right Man Longterm?

Hugh Freeze was hired as the Ole Miss Head Coach after the firing of Houston Nutt. Freeze used to coach at Arkansas State before making the move. The best part of the fact that Ole Miss hired Freeze? His Twitter account. It is absolutely hilarious. He also just likes to list songs of the day for the Ole Miss Rebels. You would think it’s run by a college kid after a night of binge...

Ole Miss Rebels: 2011 Exit Survey

  If Ole Miss fans thought 2010's 4-8 season was bad, then 2011 was a nightmare. It opened with a loss at BYU in one of the uglier games of the season. Ole Miss then beat Southern Illinois before being thumped by Vandy 30-7 and beaten by Georgia 27-13 in a game that wasn't as close as the score. Ole Miss then went on the road to beat Fresno State before dropping their...

Of not setting feet. Of not being able to make accurate throws of more than 10-15 yards down field. Well, no one wants that. Not the fans. Not the coaches. To quote a race of hyper-intelligent, pan...
