    Fella, is that the only picture you have? I can find pictures of at least one player on EVERY college football team in the US like this.. If this is your only leg to stand on in this debate, I might would try to make a deal with a pirate. And at least he had it right, Oxford IS the best place I've ever been as well.

    jake, give poor little lane a break. the punk just fired his own daddy, you know he is still upset about it.

    mn, kiffin was never a deity at ut. he had a couple of nice recruiting classes and got slapped around. he ran from the sec at his first opportunity.(urban meyer did the same thing) kiffin knew he would never be a man that could compete consistently for an sec title. tennessee is not a second tier program historically in my opinion. they will be back.

Why would he leave somewhere that they will only pay him more and more if he keeps winning and have 30,000 people worship you like a greek god. If he could pull a rabbit out of his hat and win the west, he would get a ridiculous offer to stay with all the alumni money that would pour in.
    Sorry but if you think Ole Miss can pay the salaries Ala, LSU, Fl, GA and for the most part Ark. you are wrong. Did you say 30,000? LSU and Bama gets those numbers at a spring game. Ole Miss is a great school and beautiful campus and like I said they will get the occasional 9 win season but I dont see them ever beating LSU and Bama in the same season. If it wasnt for some inside deals (not saying illegal) with brothers and friends of recruits already there no one would be talking about the Black Bears. Yes they have some wealthy alum, but not the numbers LSU, Bama and Fla not to mention these schools can pay the top dollars without Alum putting up money. Worry about winning the Egg Bowl not the West

    Look at the photo again, not the hundred dollar bills, not the ring, check out the two homely looking co-eds that would be considered about a 4 on most campuses, that's the evidence, Ole Miss got one of the best recruiting classes in the country using ugly chicks alone? Not possible.

    Well I'll start off by saying it's not uncommon for The Ridgerunners to pull a few elite recruits from time to time. I get that they "Turned it around" last year & Johnny Reb is no longer crying. I'm glad to have Ole Miss as a relevant team. Beside it being a rivalry & tradition, there is no reason why Ole Miss should make a game against LSU year after year. They do despite the fact that the superior team resides in The BR. All that said, you're Ole Miss. The same fan base that ran David Cutcliffe out of town for not winning a BCS Champ with Eli. Your team may have a couple good years in a 5 or 6 year span, but there is no staying power. Oxford is nice & the breeding quality is certainly up there. Now enjoy your recruits, the rest of The SEC upper echelon has more than a few. So enjoy your bowl win, watch the replay of the ESPN segment on Ole Miss's past, bring out your fine china in The Grove, have your females get dressed up all pretty like, but @ the end of the day, Hotty Toddy is an afterthought to Geaux Tigers!!!!

    I would say Missisippi has changed.

    Feel free to answer. As long as you don't have a pile of Alabama gear on when you get there, you are more than welcome in our tent. As to the question, I feel we have been a second tier team for the longest time but I think that will change in the next few years. It wasn't that long ago we came into the season ranked #4 in the nation. Although it was short-lived, it was fun while it lasted.

    Someone needs to explain the ring to me.
