I'm shooting for the first weekend in November. I can't remember Derk & Aldie's reasoning, but I assumed it was because it was close to my birthday.

It's looking very likely to be held on November 9th through the 12th... But I can't guarantee those dates. I can say that we're talking with the hotels right now tho.

That's a great weekend. Ole Miss is off that weekend with our Arch-Rival LSU the next Saturday.

A beautifull song is playing in the back of my head for some reason...and I'm seeing a lot of MAROON. I don't think your arch-rival is LSU Sybot...they are your "we own you rival". An Arch Rival is somebody you have a chance at beating...



What happened to Bama? My reccollection is Bama and State are #1/#2 in the Alumni "we must beat them" category...

(A little cross-MS prod for those who don't recognize it...)

I can get behind those dates, if only because I would only have to take one day off of work to attend, since the Friday is a holiday for me.

Pretty much any SEC West game is a rivalry as the whole league is storied. However, there are games that are bigger than others, and the game most people get excited about every year is the LSU game. They are Ole Miss' traditional Rivalry. That is the game we want to win more than any other in any year. The MSU game is a game we're supposed to win every year.

Ed: Sorry messed up the quoting in the first one.

Cool! My daughter won't hate me for being out of state on her birthday this year!

(Hey! I was able to tip Derk 0.02 - though the geekcents don't show in the tip jar)

Just my 0.02

By my calculations we are 58-38-6 against MooU A far cry above 50%. I wish that I had that good a record in E&T.

Unless something has changed from prior posts by Aldie and Derk, it will be in the Dallas metro area.
