I Live For This Stuff

Ole Miss, a fine university in, I think, Mississippi (and the college home of at least one Blog reader), is in a bit of a tizzy today. It seems as if fans that showed up for football games had a propensity for chanting "The South will rise again!!" during the fight song. (Example at the 50 second mark below). Well, the the Grand Poobah of the university, who obviously was not raised in Wise County, said that the chant is offensive and, in light of the fact that the crowd didn't heed his warning last week to "cut it out", has now banned the fight song completely. I'm sure the chanting students will retaliate with "State's Rights!" signs, but we'll have to wait and see.
