Another week down and another series win for the Commodores. Vanderbilt has won all eight of its weekend series (five by sweep) and is off to a program best 11-1 start in SEC play. So what is there to talk about this blog post? How about GameDay Grass?
I’ll get into my thoughts on the GameDay Grass, look at the top performers from last week (including your poll), and have a gander at our opponents this week.
It’s been quite well publicized that Admiral Ackbar is up for the role of mascot for the University of Mississippi, but it isn’t real news anymore until the Taiwanese go all CGI on the news (see, e.g., the Tiger Woods Accident and Spanking footage, as previously chronicled by this site).
My only advice to the good admiral is that this is a trap. The Ole Miss football team is the bottom of the barrel. They’ve got a “student”-athlete who can’t read (“He’s a good boy, he just can’t read“). They try to pretend they can compete in the West, but since Eli left they’ve been closer to Mississippi State than LSU and Bama. And you’ll be leading a fan base that had no problem for years with the idea of waving the Confederate Flag that represented to many African Americans a symbol of oppression and racism (regardless of the fact that it may have represented something different to those waving it).
