Who is going to win the rotten pooty eggbowl between Ole Miss and Mississippi State? Ole Miss will never be what its fans wishes it to be in football as long as LSU, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee remain in exiatence. How many bright star athletes would pick Ole Miss over those schools? It's going to take a coach out of this world to change Ole Miss' fortunes. Go Mississippi State. I predict Mississippi State will put an LSU-styled a__whipping on Ole Miss and will take a knee the whole 4th quarter. I ain't hatin' on Ole Miss,though. My nephew is on the Ole Miss team.
