As an LSU fan upset with the scheduling of in state patsies I do not think Ole Miss should sign on to play you. Miss St has hit a low point where they could regularly find themselves in real recruiting battles with So Miss because of their recent fall from respectable status... if things continue Southern Miss may very well become the second most desirable in state school to local recruits, if that happens we can just go ahead and pencil Miss St in for 6th every year in the SEC West. So they find themselves in the unenviable position of having to prove that they are the better school and the better destination to in state recruits.
Ole Miss on the other hand is currently the top dog in their state. They would gain nothing from playing schools that are already considered below them and could easily loose ground just from playing a close game to an in state opponent, so really there is nothing for them to gain.

Yeah, you got bragging rights this year. But don't get too cocky. Last year was the infamous baseball game between our teams (3-2). And in 2007 it was a 19-14 State win.Everything you typed makes sense to me except this quote. When was State respectable?
None of this is an issue for Ole Miss. We sold out our game against Southeast Louisiana. We have no reason to play USM, and even if we did, we wouldn't, for the same reason we just dropped Memphis for Tulane.
We don't like them

State would not beat this USM team. Maybe in 2014 when the series renews itself they might.
Unfortunately, i could care less about this. I'm a huge USM fan, and I've put Ole Miss and MSU behind me and I would rather us move on.
Ole Miss and USM absolutely hate each other, so that series won't happen in my lifetime lol.
Are you psychic?? If so, tell me who will win the Atl vs NE game this weekend.
Did you predict the Saints to win this weekend?
Same goes for me, I would pick USM to win and I would be pretty damn sure of my pick. We could lose to KU by 20 Saturday and I still wouldn't change my pick.
Don't get defensive because I think USM is better then State. I'm pretty sure they've been better for 7+ years now, and we've been pretty mediocre.
With that said, I have no idea what direction your program will take you with Mullen, but I'm sure the only way you have left is up.
