Let us set the weather situation in Oxford, Mississippi at The Grove this past Saturday for a showdown with Alabama:

• Cold (58-60)

• Cloudy

• Occasional mist

• Extremely muddy due to a couple of inches of rain on Friday

Us: “I can’t believe the girls wear dresses even though it’s so cold.”

Ole Miss Supporter Guy: “These Southern women are tough.”

Here is how we can best describe a day at the infamous Grove tailgating mecca at Ole Miss:

Throw together one part cocktail party and one part Christmas with your family. Add in a football game. Stir. And you have one of the most unique experiences in all of college football.

No cars are allowed into The Grove so there aren’t giant RVs with multiple TVs hanging from every available inch of bus. Propane tanks are not allowed meaning you don’t have Buckeye Bill grilling up burgers at a dizzying pace. Beer bongs are not allowed meaning Wisconsin Wes from Appleton can’t impress the ladies by pounding 4 beers in nine seconds.

This is a gentlemanly gathering where people from all across the south congregate for a giant party and a little football.

After the jump is a small example of what the Grove has to offer. For the full experience, get your lazy ass to Oxford and spend an afternoon with people who will be your friends for life.

Inside the game there was plenty of passion from Ole Miss fan but inside his head there was the knowledge that the Rebels had only beaten the Tide a handful of times in the school’s existence.

Ole Miss Fan: “Where ya’ll from?”

Us: Ohio. We’ve never been to a SEC game.”

Ole Miss Fan: Welcome. I hope you see Alabama catch an ass whoopin’.”

He never sat on the cold, aluminum bleacher seats the entire game. Meanwhile, we were surrounded by ‘Bama fans cruising to victory on the back of several Ole Miss turnovers.

Drunken students had to be helped up the now ancient concrete aisles. It got colder and yet the girls still had on the shoulder-less dresses and cowboy boots.

Ole Miss eventually was put out of its misery and fans went back to The Grove to talk football, booze and get the party going again.

They didn’t have to be out until midnight.
