Monday Discussion: Honor Code Edition

The one thing that all Ole Miss fans love is providing advice on what to see, do, eat, and drink in Oxford. Presumably, many of the BYU fans making the trip to the Grove and the too-friendly confines of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will be here on their maiden voyage. Let's give them some advice on our town. 

There is a catch: some of these visitors will be students at BYU. College basketball fans will remember the Brandon Davies story from the past NCAA tournament, a story which brought the Brigham Young Honor Code to national prominence. The Honor Code, in short, prohibits drankin', smoking, coffee, tea, drugs, and premarital relationships with the ladyfolk (or menfolk too, technically.) Here at Red Cup Rebellion, we don't advocate for anyone to be kicked out of school, but we always advocate for a good time. My honor code-approved Oxford recommendations are after the jump. 

Go to the Grove. Enjoy being surrounded by beautiful women in expensive dresses. Walk up to a tent, introduce yourself as a visitor, compliment the elaborateness of their tailgate setup. Politely decline a drink, and take them up on the offer of fried chicken tenders or sandwiches. When people say they have too many, they mean it, and they actually want you to have some. Do this over and over again.

I'm not going to touch on the Square, food, shopping, history, sightseeing, or anything else. That's up to y'all. Be hospitable, be helpful, and please be respectful.
