Ghosts of Egg Bowls past.

The Egg Bowl is upon us.  What crazy tale will be added to it's lore tonight?  Check this bit of nostalgia from the Dispatch in Columbus.

The rivalry has become too caustic. To MSU, it’s about destroying Ole Miss. a rivalry can be fun, but now it has become worse than the Iron Bowl. The game should be moved to October to cool the hate.

Attn 3:08 If you think this rivalry is worse than the iron bowl rivalry, you have been living in a tree, a dead oak tree.

4:00, several MSUers have devoted their life to tearing down OM. Lots of Harvey Updikes there including that 350 pound meth head who is their writer PR guy. He needs to go BACK to jail.

4:55 I went to the University of Mississippi and I don't see anyone trying harder to tearing down the Ole Miss tradition any more than OLE MISS alums. Have you experienced the grove lately? Being 19 years old and dressed to the t's in red and blue does not provide an excuse to get publicly DRUNK. Candelabra's at the grove tents. Please tell me what is more pretentious than this.

3:08, guess you forgot about the Ole Miss alums hiring a private investigator to follow King Jackie. That qualifies as devoting lives to tearing down Mississippi State.

And of course, little brother can't resist the temptation. Tailgate your way and mind your own business.

4:55, better alcohol than meth that is at MSU. Oh, and all the steroid abuse in the athletics

3:08, Ole Miss is doing a pretty good job of destroying itself and the state of Mississippi. In addition to its cheating athletics, Ole Miss academics have pretty much become a laughing stock among US colleges and universities. Very little private capital wants to come into your state; a primary reason is that your “flagship” university turns out people not educated enough to compete with the quality students coming out of educational institutions in other states.

OM ranked higher than state because OM attracts more out of state students. National reputation and all.

Ole Miss now has won 3 of the last 4 Egg Bowls. Mullen has losing record against both Freeze and Luke. Dark times are just beginning for MSU.

So glad to see Mullen lose his last Egg Bowl. Can’t stand that arrogant yankee prick.

Ole Miss fan here. This thread is pathetic.

I've always been pro-Ole Miss, not anti-State. Yeah, I pull against them in the Egg Bowl, but my team pride is not rooted in antipathy for the Bulldogs or any other program.

When I went the the Arkansas game this year, I saw a guy in the grove with a shirt that was dogging MSU. That's pitiful. During the State game, maybe, but during the Arkansas game? It shows you're preoccupied with them.

State people do the same thing when they post on Facebook crowing about Ole Miss getting beat by some other team, with their "Go to hell Ole Miss" barbs. It's sad.

It's like Coke vs Pepsi. Pepsi always mentions Coke in their ads, but Coke doesn't mention Pepsi because they don't have to.

Don't be Pepsi.

Ole Miss thugs showed their true colors to the entire nation last night & targeting Fitz’s leg is as low as it gets.

Ole Miss won the game because of a tragic injury. That's O.K. That's football. But they bypassed the opportunity to win with class and grace. That's O.M.

9:54am....I truly hope that you are joking.

10:44, this is 9:45. I should not state it as though it is 100 % fact, and for that I apologize. Pictures from the play do not look good though.

Watching Mississippi and Mississippi State fans argue about which school is “better” is hilarious. Neither school is really exceptional at anything. Just like Southern Miss you need, what, a 20 on your ACT and a 2.1 GPA to get in?

Both schools are pretty much an academic joke.

As far as athletics, again, pretty average for “Power 5” schools.

Ole Miss is full of pretentious kids who THINK they are rich. If Mommy and Daddy where to compare their wealth to other area of the country and schools like Notre Dame, ULCA, and Miami they would be laughed out of town. Big fish in a small pond.

As for the hayseeds at Miss St, well, they should be thankful for Pell grants and cheap tuition.

Fitz flipped the bird at OM while he was carted off the field. Simmons punch in the pile all night. Lewis blew kisses at the OM bench before the game. Both teams had their bad moments. OM has played without their number 1 QB for two years now. Cry me a river.

Don't the people on here know that if big grown men try to hurt each other every once in a while they will succeed in doing it?

An old friend who passed away recently once said that Mississippi will never improve until people in Mississippi worry more about education and the economy than they do about the Egg Bowl. After reading these comments, he was right.

Funny stuff! Betting mostly from nobody’s that never made the team much less played a play on the field.

Athletics, especially college football, is a human psychology lesson causing the question, “are we programmed to self destruct?”

Like the NFL, classlessness has taking over college athletics. We saw it pregame. We saw the MSU QB give the FU finger. We saw the OM WR act like he was about to piss like a dog. And what do the so-called adults do? Justify their team’s actions while condemning the other. Convince themselves their team’s players are saints while the other team’s players are the thugs.

Mississippians fighting and hating each other over something they have no control of, except of course their condoning the classlessness behavior via continued support, and their justifications of their team’s actions. Very funny stuff indeed.

10:43 - weren't the dogs losing before the injury? OM has been without its starting QB. State lost due to penalties and coming into the game with the expectation to win.

12:41 Curious to know which one of the schools you mention produces grads who troll Jackson,MS blogger message boards. Sounds pretty lame for someone so smart and wealthy. Or did you not attend one of those better schools?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
