    Another inspirational qoute…if you drink and drive, you can get arrested or worse kill someone. Cheerios belong in a bowl, not Ole Miss.

      Ole Miss has WON more bowl games (23) than your little msu ‘toilet drinkers’ have ever even been to (17). Ole Miss has won 10 of their last 11 bowl appearances. Pups have only won 10 all time…
      Maybe you shouldn’t drink out of the toilet so much… I think the lid must have hit you in the head…

    Sharkfins are always living in the past. Who cares about bowl games that the Sharkfins went to during the eleven years they refused to play Alabama. Caught was a master at the cream puff schedule.

  • karl Hungus

    Caught was the master of creampuff scheduling. He never played the good teams. That’s why he is known as ” the artful dodger”.

  • Mantachie

    schedule? when you jumped out a year and a half ago undefeated until you faced Bama. State cant talk about schedule. they barely made a bowl game playing an easy schedule

    • TheGiantRebel

      yeah I remember that. It was hilarious… Karol Dungus probably still has her “WE BELIEVE” poster that she made. that was classic..they started 7-0, then finished 1-5. got slammed in the egg bowl!

  • karl Hungus

    Hmmm. Have the Sharkfins ever started a season 7 and 0? I don’t think so. Well maybe when Vaught was dodging all the good SEC teams, but certainly not in recent memory. Hang on, I’ll check.

    • Seth Mohundro

      And then you found out what they were really made of that year. Go ahead and brag about 7-0 when you end 1-5. Amuse me.

  • karl Hungus

    Ah, in 1960 the Sharkfins went 10 and 0. Of course out of the 10 SEC teams in the conference, The “artful dodger”, Johnny Vaught, didn’t schedule Bama, nor Georgia, nor Tennessee, nor Florida, nor Auburn, and the out of conference schedule was lame as well. Minnesota won the N.C. that year.

    • Seth Mohundro

      If you remember they didn’t have National Champions like they do now. Educate yourself.

  • karl Hungus

    Perhaps the greatest choke job of all-time was in 2008, when the Sharkfins were preseason #4 and went to pig salad by the end of that season. Did y’all even win an SEC game that year? Hang on I’ll check.
