- The Houston Nutt fiasco. This is the Rickey Henderson of lead off reasons to hate Ole Miss. The good news is that Ole Miss got exactly what they deserved. Back-to-back Cotton Bowls with Ed Orgeron’s players, followed by a 1-15 SEC record over the next two years.
- Laremy Tunsil has openly admitted to taking money from Ole Miss coaches. I do want to clarify this. I think all college football players should be fairly compensated. However, the fact is they aren’t and this is blatant cheating. I’d love to give every Hog $305 for their momma’s light bill.
- They got really good, kind of quick. This connects with number two. If they have players openly admitting to taking money, and they’ve also gotten good at a fairly quick rate, that’s a pretty close hop on the jump to conclusions mat. I also say, “kind of quick” because, they’ve added one win a season during Freeze’s tenure. But, the bubble has to bust at some point, right?
They’re the only SEC West team that hasn’t played in a SEC Championship game.So, this was my favorite SEC trivia question, until they went and added Texas A&M.
- Technically, they are a rival. Naturally, you have to hate your rival. They have bigger rivalries than the Hogs and the Hogs have bigger rivalries than the Rebels, but a rivalry is a rivalry. There is plenty of history, going back to the first meeting in 1908.
