University of Mississippi Landsharks

Tailgating continued at the game against LSU

November 16th, 2019



Play track to begin


Fins Up

Never Quit

New South


Home is a special place, It has to be special, it has to be definitive, the passion, the zeal, the anger, and a jealous rage. This is your home.

You get to represent rebel nation.

Be early, be loud, be a rebel, Lock the Vaught

It’s time to lock the Vaught





Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream

I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been

To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen

They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed





Are you ready?

What traditions do we keep?

What traditions live in history?

Hell Yes

a belief or story or a body of beliefs or stories relating to the past that are commonly accepted as historical though not verifiable

Damn Right

Southern Traditions

Southern Living

Hotty Toddy, Gosh amighty

Clinging to our pickled peach recipes

Who the hell are we, Hey!

Our chandeliers

Our monuments

Flim flam, bim bam,

Celebrations with family and friends

Saturday traditions

Gameday traditions

Ole Miss, By Damn





Way down south in Mississippi, There's a spot that ever calls

Where among the hills enfolded. Stand Old Alma Mater's Halls.

Where the trees lift high their branches, To the whisp'ring southern breeze.

There Ole Miss is calling, calling, to our hearts' fond memories.





Tough Season

Our Rebels fought hard and triumphed over the mighty

Razorbacks

Lions

Commodores

Aggies (NM State)


But, we were no match for the mighty

Tigers (Memphis)

Bears

Crimson Tide

Tigers (Mizzou)

Aggies (Texas A&M)

Tigers (Auburn)

Tigers (LSU)

Joe Burrowied us into the ground

The Heisman winner

The no. 1 pick

Bengals QB of the future

Bulldogs





What could be

When we stop fighting

Leave the sport on the field

The vs. on the field

The rivalries on the field

The south will not “rise again”

It has risen

Oh, I been flying... mama, there aint no denyin

Ive been flying, aint no denyin, no denyin





Mired politics with sports

Allegations

Violations

Resignations

Terminations

Suspensions

Bowl Bannings

Tarnishing the names of the Mannings

We were frozen, stuck, but no more

The old regime was escorted out

We look towards the future





All I see turns to brown, as the sun burns the ground

And my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land

Trying to find, trying to find where Ive been.






We look towards progress

This is the new University of Mississippi Football

This is a new decade

This is a new regime

No more lost Egg Bowls

No more sad Thanksgiving

We are more than that Sugar Bowl win

The Cowboys never stood a chance

Bring on the future of Ole Miss football





With united hearts we praise thee, All our loyalty is thine,

And we hail thee, Alma Mater, may thy light forever shine;

May it brighter grow and brighter, And with deep affection true,

Our thoughts shall ever cluster 'round thee, Dear Old Red and Blue.

My thy fame throughout the nation, Through thy sons and daughters grow,

May thy name forever waken, In our hearts a tender glow,

May thy counsel and thy spirit, Ever keep us one in this,

That our own shall be thine honor, Now and ever dear Ole Miss.





Stand Up for the flag

Kneel for your right

Stand up for social injustice

These colors don’t run

Don’t run away from the problem

Keep your head down and play

Leave the politics off the field

Off the Grove

We don't feel comfortable at the Grove

All can party at the grove

We may have lost the war, but we've never lost a party

Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear

But not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear

Oh, oh.






“It must also remind us that the defeat of the Confederacy actually meant freedom for millions of people.”

But at what cost?

Do we continue to separate ourselves

Building walls

Cutting down bridges

Gameday is our bridge

The pigskin our olive branch






Let us acknowledge where we’ve been so we can move on to the future

Instead of continuing to fight old battles in the new South

"To me, this is not a political issue: this is about what’s morally right and wrong.”

We remove to progress

We don’t remove to delete





We talk of progress

We’ve suffered identity crisis

Ole Miss Rebels

Ole Miss Rebels Landshark

University of Mississippi Ole Miss Rebels Landsharks

What’s in a name

It's more than a game

It's more than a war

It's more than battles

It's more than winning and losing





We bleed blue and red

Where will we stand

No more black bears

No more colonels

We look towards the Landsharks

Optimism is at an all time high

Activism is at an all time high

Students are standing up

Players are standing up

Fins Up

Tony’s legacy will live on





Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years

With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear

Ohh.

When Im on, when Im on my way, yeah

When I see, when I see the way, you stay-yeah






Let me take you there. let me take you there

Lock the Vaught

Never Quit

Hotty Toddy
