For the sixth time in the Mark Richt era, the Ole Miss Rebels fell to the Georgia Bulldogs this afternoon in Athens. This is the place to talk about it. How about a little music?
As you know, Ole Miss fans are pretty fond of red solo cups. I assume it's a vestige of a time gone by when poor but proud Mississippians couldn't afford actual drinking vessels and had to opt for plastic. That time was 2010 by the way. But I digress.
Always gracious in victory, we here at Dawg Sports thought it would be nice to toast Ole Miss fans on their way out of Athens with their own version of Toby Keith's paean to cheap beer delivery vehicles. Rebel fans, I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy these little visits of yours. Tell Mama, Brent Schaefer, Ed Orgeron, and cousin Catfish we said hello, and . . .
Red Solo Cup Rebel Remix (MaconDawg/Hugh Freeze, 2012)
Red solo cup, Ole Miss fans fill you up;
Then have a party! They have a party!
They love their red solo cups, even when beaten up;
By the whole damned conference!
The whole damned conference!
Now it's easy to give Ole Miss fans some flack;
With a Memphis high school coaching hack;
You've heard Mike Oher called him "the Snake";
But Freeze would be coaching at Tennessee;
If Freeze Tennessee'd take.
Now you'd be in a hurry to get blitzed, see;
If you hadn't won crap since 1963;
Rebel fans like to say they've never lost the tailgate;
But they haven't beaten MSU since 2008!
That's drives them nuts, though this too shall pass;
But it's still no fun when little brother kicks your ass.
Red solo cup! Ole Miss fan he fills you up!
And forgets the Egg Bowl!
"Dan Mullen's an asshole!"
Red solo cup! Ole Miss fans can't get enough!
They'll have a throw down!
Before they go down!
Well they've lost to Bama and sometimes to Vandy;
At finishing 5th in the West they're pretty handy;
They're the team of the future, make no mistake;
It's been that way since 1968!
Tubs planned to leave Oxford in an ole pine box;
Till Lowder flew in and knocked off his socks;
They've had Cutcliffe and Orgeron and some Nuttjob too;
But no matter who's in charge, here's what the Rebs do . . .
Red solo cup! Ole Miss fans they fill you up!
We'll get 'em next time!
Pour me some Bud Lime!
Red solo cup, Southern Proper shirt covered in upchuck!
Now it's a rager!
We've won nothing major!
Red solo cup! Ole Miss fan can't get enough!
He's already on the corridor! By mid-third quarter!
Red solo cup! The Magnolia State lifts you up!
Literacy's overrated! Dropout rate understated
