The Decision Makers at Ole Miss Must Read this Blog

I gave Coach O a little grief the other day. And it was well-deserved, apparently.

From EVERY PERSON I TALKED TO going into the Egg Bowl, Coach O was going to be the coach at Ole Miss next year unless something crazy happened.

Friday = Crazy.

Coach O might have been better off if he had just gotten blown out from the beginning. If Mississippi State demonstrated that they were just a physically superior team and dominated the game, I don’t think the concern/reaction would have been the same. You could have just chalked it up to it being the last game of what was a dreadful season, and the kids kind of threw the towel in. No big deal, really.

But that’s not what happened. For 3 1/2 quarters, Ole Miss was the better team. Actually, they were the better team the whole game.

They could have won the game.

They SHOULD have won the game.

And they didn’t. The opportunity was presented to have a slight silver lining on the season to beat your in-state rival, and he blew it.

The athletic department and influential figures at Ole Miss really should be happy that it turned out the way it did. Otherwise, they could have been in the same position this time next year, and be yet another year behind everyone else in the SEC.

With the momentum that is building for State, Ole Miss needed to make this move.
