A Plea from a Downtrodden Rebel Fan....

I, like many of you, have witnessed firsthand the roulette wheel that is Ole Miss football.  To keep it brief, I will stick to recent memories: The 2008 Florida masterpiece and glorious, unexpected 9-4 season, the 2009 time management crack up of Les Miles in Oxford, the 2009 disaster in Starkville, and the obviously disappointing 2010 season have all been both amazing and unbelievable.  I have seen a pony-tail-wearing J'ville State fan at halftime and pitied him, only to later see him buy shots at The Library while he celebrated his school's biggest victory in the history of their program.  I have also seen a truly awful Vanderbilt team beat us by two touchdowns even though they were considered a doormat by everyone on their schedule not named Eastern Michigan.  These are all instances that have contributed to my highs and lows with our beloved Rebels since the arrival of Coach Houston Nutt.  I realize that next year may be bleak and hopeless also, but I have one request that I feel I must make to you Right Reverend.   


Please beat Mississippi State.  Soon.  In football.  We have witnessed the slight rise of our hated rivals, the cow folk, and their fearless ("Kiffin-like") leader Dan Mullen.  We have seen our boys fall to them for two years straight now, and we have had enough.  Every time I read an article speculating that Dan Mullen will be hired by Miami, Minnesota, or some movie theater that has run into some hard times, I become hopeful, but I have now decided that the only way to exorcise these demons is to beat them senseless.  I now hope that Dan Mullen stays in Starkville because I want to see him fail.  Not only that, I want us to be the reason he fails.  I do not expect him to stay past 2012, at most, but I want to send him on his way with a bruised ass and ego.

 

I want to emphatically state that I support you Coach Nutt.  I believe that you are the best thing for our program right now, and I am fully behind any and all staff change decisions you make this off season.  This belief is partially based upon the fact that I currently have no other choice, but nevertheless I believe in you Coach.  But know this: I hate losing to State.  I hate them like poison.  I want you to beat them and Dan Mullen until "beat" is no longer the appropriate verb to use in that statement.  Since it will be almost a year before we play the puppies again in football, our frustration must be vented in any way possible.  Beat them in recruiting.  Beat them in under-the-rug, smart-assery comments fed to the Clarion Ledger.  Hell, beat Mullen in ping pong if you get a chance.  Even a win in an exhibition chess match between you and Mullet would do me some good right now.  But when the 2011 football season ends, I want to be able to say that we took back some pride from The School Beneath Us.

With all that being said, I am happy that the 2010 season is behind us, and I look forward to the possibility of a better year ahead of the Ole Miss Rebels.  Now go make us proud Coach Nutt.  You can start by firing Tyrone Nix.
