A State fan getting more excited about an Ole Miss loss than a MSU win? Yep, check me off for that one this week. Mississippi fans got
a little waaaaaaayyyyyyyy too excited about that Texas game. Matthew McConaughey, biggest game since Eli's senior year, biggest party since the Olympics, etc....game week included all kinds or rumors and false hope for them in this game. They even pleaded pleaded with ESPN to bring College Gameday to Oxford - for what turned out to be a 66-31 drubbing. But I knew they would lose it. Heck, even Hugh Freeze even said on the sidelines before the game they couldn't win. But Rebel fans were too pumped up to see the signs. To borrow from Roll Bama Roll's famous meltdown thread, here is how Ole Miss' weekend went down...

Texas missed a field goal, and the streak of eight straight possessions with a score finally snapped. Ole Miss takes over.— Ben Garrett (@SpiritBen) September 16, 2012
Largest crowd for a non-conference game in school history. Ole Miss trails, 52-24, entering the fourth quarter.— Ben Garrett (@SpiritBen) September 16, 2012

Starting to feel like the dog jumped on the table and

Dear 1L who just slipped me an airplane bottle of Crown
I love you. So much. More than words can say. Because I need this right now.
Anyone who thought us beating Central Arkansas or UTEP meant anything, I chalk up to having delusions of grandeur. We are digging ourselves out of a Hootie Dale Nutt grave. We have to do it one handful at a time.
Stop the bleeding please.
