Didn't they change their name to black bears?
I hear Oxford is a nice place. They have some tradition of good teams and I would think with the right coach they can be just as food as LSU. With auburn sucking, ole miss is picking up the pieces
What is happiness? The feeling that power is growing, that resistance is overcome.--Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Oh, they may have changed their name..but they stubbornly stick to the Rebel nickname, with a back drop of the confederate flag...really.
It's a beautiful place, old Southern gentility....with some of the most lovely ladies in a region filled with them.

I think they've changed their mascot (as in the costume guy on the field during games) to the Black Bears, but their nickname is still the Rebels.
Agreed, but the students and fans still cling to the old mascot...and you see posters and banners with the Rebel and a confederate flag backdrop. You'll see plenty of it on gameday.
The Ole Miss student body is beyond a shadow of doubt very racist. I agree with that.
I think Clemson had similar success out of no where in recruiting a couple of years ago. They started getting star players. The same thing happened with Auburn. Recruiting is a different thing, anything can happen. I think this is getting more publicity since three of the top five players may come to the same school. They will be picking a team with no BCS bowl apperances over teams like Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, and Arkansas. I think other SEC fans are starting these rumors.
