undefeated

THE REBELS WON ON SATURDAY! WE ARE 6-0 FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1962! WE ARE ALREADY BOWL ELIGIBLE! WE ARE CURRENTLY RANKED #3 IN THE AP POLL!

Incase you can't tell I'm just a little bit excited about this! I'm not going to lie I was nervous until the very end of Saturday's game, because like the announcers liked to keep mentioning A&M came from behind to beat us the past two years. What was especially great about Saturday's game is that it showed everyone that our win against Bama wasn't just a fluke. We played a great game of football.

It really is hard to explain how big of a deal this is because unless you're an Ole Miss (or Mississippi State) fan you just wouldn't understand. To go from the laughing stock of your conference to being ranked in the top 5 within just a few years is huge. I know Auburn went from horrible to the national title game in just a year, but that's different because they'd won it all just a few years before. Ole Miss hasn't won a national title since the 60s and unless I'm mistaken Mississippi State has never won. I'm genuinely excited for Mississippi State and their #1 ranking, to see my beloved state ranked at the top of something good is good for my soul. Plus I don't think there is any doubt they're playing the best game of football in the nation right now.

This was the hype video from the Bama game the other week, but I think it so perfectly explains what is going on; "when the race is on, all bets are off."





Who knows what the rest of the season will hold, but it sure is nice watching the underdogs succeed. It is such a special time for the Magnolia State. I'm so proud to call this place home and to call those boys in the red and blue my team. Hotty Toddy!


I know this is a football post, but I think it has a lesson we can all take away. Just because you've never been number one doesn't mean you can't start being the best now. We decide our own fates; hard work, determination, and passion pay off. As Taylor Swift would say, just let the haters hate and shake it off.

  1. This is why I LOVE college football! It can change so much from season to season and the slate is pretty much clean at the start of every season! You never know what can happen, it's exciting! Congrats to your Rebels, they are amazing! :)

  2. The state of Mississippi is playing some AMAZING football this season - it's really fun to see! It hurts my Bama loving heart to see us struggle so much this year with discipline on special teams and offense, but I'm genuinely SO excited to see State & Ole Miss playing so well! I can't wait to see y'all play each other later this season - that will be a GREAT game this year!
