Dearest Ole Miss Student Body,
Cut that shit out, seriously.
Just let it go. You’ll get over it, I promise. I know because I was right there in the middle of the student section some years ago waiving the confederate flag in support of by beloved Rebels. Hell, there’s was a picture of me and the rest of the Ole Miss faithful on the cover of the USA Today, waiving the flag, during the height of that controversy. It took a forward thinking Chancellor in Robert Khayat, and a head strong football coach like Tommy Tuberville to get that practice changed. And they were right. Really really right. And you know what else, we totally got over it pretty quickly because we realized it didn’t mean all that much to us in the long run because we weren’t hate mongering racists hell beant on preserving the pride and dignity of the Old South and all of the tenets that it stood for by God!, all we really wanted was what was best for our school, and ultimately, ourselves. The national perception, and more importantly to me…the health and well being of the football team, was more significant than some piece of cloth on a stick that came in more handy to stir my bourbon and coke then it ever did to cheer on my Rebels.
All that being said, its one stupid line in one stupid song, that, if you’re are so enraged and adamant about losing, probably indicates that you have some deeper seeded issues beyond cheering for mediocre football. If that’s the case, may we offer a musical alternative, I’m sure the band could learn it.
In closing, seriously, stop it with TSWRA. And fuck you for making me so mad that I used a Randy Newman reference.
Thoughts and Prayers,
