I'd crop that barcode off ASAP. Someone can steal the ticket with that information, and/or sell it on StubHub.

It's not "dressing up."

"Other traditions are tied to the Confederacy, often in esoteric ways. As prospective students toured the campus one day last month, a guide explained why Ole Miss fans wear church clothes to football games.

The football team, he said, represents the troops heading off to battle, harking back to 1861 when students enlisted en masse in the Confederate Army. Their families, the tradition goes, saw them off wearing their Sunday best."

2:15pm, it's not always 100 degrees outside in Oct. In fact, one year I remember it to be a very nice and brisk 87 F. Perfect for North Face vests and Pumpkin Spice Latte's from Starbucks.

I'm somewhat colorblind and it's not exactly an HD pic, but the sweater vest is most definitely not red like the tie underneath it.

I appreciate what you do and have enjoyed your blog for years. I understand this is your blog and I respect your right to post stories about whatever you want. But, as an Ole Miss graduate and someone who loves their alma mater (warts and all), I just wanted to say the daily stories and attacks have become too much. I understand why you post these stories and, again, respect your right and reasons for doing so. However, for what it's worth (not much, I'm sure), I just thought I'd let you know how unpleasant it now is for this long time JJ reader and Ole Miss graduate to visit your site. I know, I know, I shouldn't visit JJ anymore if it bothers me that much. If I don't like it, I need to hit the road. I guess I will, but not happily. Thanks for your hard work and insight in the past. Gonna miss JJ. Wish you all the best. I really do.

Also, the pic is off center and you can see the tie under the cuff of the model on the viewers left.

I thought they were "The University of Mississippi" now. Are we back to using Old Miss? I'm so confused.

4:11 PM just wet his blanket. He'll be back when his friends and/or office mates can't quit talking about the latest JJ article. I went to Ole Miss yet I have no rose-colored glasses regarding its less than honorable traits. I think this site is covering just the surface of things that have been going on for years!!!

At the inception of the civil war, the action was actually watched like it was a match or a tournament.

In picnic type settings dressed to the 9s, families watched the first skirmishes.

In a sense ole miss football may be the closest thing remaining resembling the civil war.

Rich white people watching their (their owned) black football heroes.

Run.....run.....RUN....negro.

Then back at the mansion they recount the days events...how each of their chattel performed.

Never to actually speak or pray or live or see or otherwise socialize with.....

@4:11 This blog has always focused on corruption and calling it out. Right now, Ole Miss is the center of corruption. Note that Kingfish hasn't focused so much on the NCAA violations. He has focused on the Public Records issues. Ole Miss has refused to comply with Public records requests repeatedly. The corruption is rampant. The coach is visiting escorts while on recruiting trips. Think about that. A public employee uses public funded trips to visit hookers.

You won't be @4:11 PM.

Maybe I'll quit covering it when the local media starts covering it instead of allowing the national media for doing their jobs for them - or caving in to a cannon of advertising boycott threats.

4:36, while there may be a very few "rich" white people who still watch that garbage, MOST of the few white people still paying NINETY FIVE DOLLARS (or more) to sit on their saggy asses and waste their time viewing that idiocy, are financially-strapped Prepnecks (Rednecks who think they're Preppies), Polyester Blazer Republicans (the old 'Rush is Right' crowd), and plain-ol' broke-ass REDNECKS.

Remember that leaked photo, from a year or two back, showing a Redneck Tawnya fooling with an ice chest, outside an MDOT truck at a gas station, on the way to a football game? That's the white demographic involved in those things, these days.

Very few of those losers go home to "mansions" - or even 'McMansions'. Yes, they all have FANTASIES and DELUSIONS of Ole Miss being some sort of elite club. But the truth is that TODAY, Ole Miss is no more an 'elite' institution than is Mizzou.

Another happy customer @ August 18, 2017 at 4:11 PM. I'm pretty certain Ole Miss hasn't gotten this much press since???? What positive things have happened up there that would be real news for the general public? University funds used for trists; that is news. Deal with it. You didn't do it, why not share some of the great things they are doing today. I'm waaaaaiting.

Anonymous said...

I will say it if no one else will. Ole Miss and MS State are pretty much not on anyone's radar screen outside the great state of MS. I would venture when kids dream of college outside of MS, neither school is a consideration. Last hope for those who need the money (AKA Football) maybe, but for academics? Nada!

Wow. How old are you people? Do all you turds behave like this in your real life? Regardless of your opinion about Ole Miss, or whether you think the "local media" has somehow failed in its coverage, @4:11 politely and respectfully expressed his/her feelings. Why do so many here need to attack, belittle and throw insults in response? @4:11 was being charitable. Seems to me a lot of you are just a bunch of jerks who get off on putting down people who see things differently, or have an opinion different from your's. I'm not a long time JJ reader and I didn't go to Ole Miss, but I'm with 4:11. This place isn't nearly as interesting or informative as it is mean. I'm sure some of you will now attack me too. Enjoy. Knock yourself out. Even though I won't be back to read it, I'm sure it'll make you feel so much better and superior to everyone else. Ciao, arrivederci, sayonara, bye bye.

Dear 4:11 and 8:28,

Perhaps I can explain to you the frequent comments made about Ole Miss on this blog in this way (although Ole Miss people will find some stupid nitpicking statistic and use it to hurl back an arrogant response to me):

Go back fifty years and compare Mississippi to one of the other Southern states (well, maybe not Arkansas). Let’s use South Carolina. Fifty years ago you would find very similar statistics for Mississippi and South Carolina on population size, wealth, investment, housing, universities, infrastructure, tax revenue, race relations, the arts, quality of life in the cities, etc. Now compare those same statistics today. You can do a gap analysis (well maybe you can’t; just ask somebody at MSU) and document the huge differences.

The useful question to ask about these differences (if you can set aside your arrogance long enough) is why has formerly backwards South Carolina advanced and Mississippi not? (Indeed, just about all Mississippi cities have decayed). Oh, no doubt, South Carolina is far, far from perfect, (but at least they seem to shunt all of their white trash into Myrtle Beach).

However, instead of asking why this gap has occurred and how can the gap be closed, your flagship university continues concentrating on “culture” for the haves and blowing money on football (or on gambling casinos) to occupy the idleness of your have-nots. (Your handful of liberals on campus are immaterial and irrelevant.) And, you always make arrogant excuses, perfectly acceptable to you of course, for your low ratings -- even in football. (e.g., “We’re the best 5-7 team in the country!”)

I spent the past week visiting in downtown Greenville (the SC version, not your version). I’m told that fifty years ago it was a ghost town -- except for the drunks and prostitutes. Today the top-twenty Clemson MBA School is right downtown on Main Street and parts of its top-twenty rated engineering program overlook the entrance to the city. There are scores of downtown start-up companies -- even medical, medical research, medical technology, bio engineering, and medical software companies (and Clemson does not even have a medical school) that have drawn in millions of dollars of investment capital. If I were to walk outside of your medical school in Jackson on, say, Fortification Street, what would I see – other than flying bullets?

You had the chance just like the other Southern states. But you see, your problem in Mississippi is that your flagship university is just too arrogant to do anything other than supporting and defending your plantation system of lawyers who make their living on drawing up bond documents and grinding the faces of your poor in your chancery court system, and your news media is too cowardly to report the truth.

Again, the only response you Ole Miss people have (while holding out your hands to we federal taxpayers, and to the SEC) is one of arrogance. This, 4:11 and 8:28, is why people slap you down.

4:11, confirmation bias is a big part of the problem we now have, with both sides refusing to read anything they deem unpleasant or counter to their preferred beliefs, regardless of how true it is. It's commendable that you didn't cry "fake news" and, instead, have just admitted you do not have the stomach for the actual facts, but a respect for the truth, and a desire to see it come out regardless of how painful or damaging it might be, is what will get all of us out of the mess we're in.

I'm with 10:29 on this. Very well thought out and spoken. We had our chance and we blew it. Too many lawyers and judges. Sort of like their own little fraternity. We paid the price for their success and dreams. Now we have a state that for all things involved cannot and will not get off the bottom. The public school system is a factory for football players and other sports. It's not for academics. So, now you understand that when a player sits at a press conference before or after a game it's the worst English you have ever heard. Oh, but they can sure sing a good rap song.

Ole Miss still has fans?

Anonymous said...

To summarize 4:11 "I really like it when you expose lies and corruption about others. I really don't like it when you expose lies and corruption related to my beloved rebels."

If only the Ole Miss fans who try to beat down the daily new ways that their program played dirty as no big deal and "old news" could hold up a mirror.

Here's a news flash it won't be old news for quite a while because your folks wouldn't quit cheating even when the NCAA was actually on campus, so investigations, by practical necessity, will have to lag illicit activities until such time that an actual crystal ball is produced that would give the NCAA insight into the next dumb thing to expect from UM admins, coaches and wanna be important lawyuhs/alumni

not sure about the answer to why ole miss kids dress like lil preps for games having to do with going off to war or dressing up to watch a battle but if anyone is actually interested in Oxford civil war stuff you should check out Starke Miller at Miller CW Tours page or google "Starke Miller Oxford."

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
