Rebels Enjoy The Grove for Final Football Game this Year

Rebels Enjoy The Grove for Final Football Game this Year

OXFORD, Miss. — How, I wonder, was Saturday our LAST home game of this season?

It was here, and now it’s gone, and it all just happened way too fast.  How do you even begin to write about something so special?  How do you explain the excitement of watching this team?  This Lane Train we love accelerating to more like a locomotion?  I’m not sure I can.

It’s not easy to let go of Matty Ice, of Braylon Sanders and Snoop.  I don’t want this defense derailed by a date on a calendar.  Chance Campbell just came to us – why can’t we see just a few more of those crazy good plays at home?  Sam Williams showed out, and it’s way too early for me to even think about the possibility of Jerrion Ealy not entering The Vaught to play ever again.

So I won’t.

It’s like Nick Saban said, “I’m not gonna do it so don’t ask me.”  I’ll simply let the snapshots speak for themselves.  Hotty Toddy to every single one of you who’ve made the trip to Oxford these past few months, and here’s to hoping next year we see even more of the same  — a whole lot of fantastic football.
