Think that Ole Miss isn't a rival...i know we had a big dicussion the other day...just wanted to see if anybody still feels the same...
I don't really think of them as one, regardless of what happened today or any other time. However, i agree with whoever posted earlier that they consder us their rival.
I believe they are but like I've said that is my opinion to much history is there for it not to be...
...and here in lies the problem. They play us with the spirit of a rival and LSU plays like they are just going to lay down and take a beating. Ole Miss has either beat us or played within 6 pts the last 5 times theyve been to TS.
That's effort and attitude.
Very much so, but i think we seem to take that approach with lots of teams. In the game thread i mentioned about Rivers throwing only his second pass of the year today, and the reason for that is that we haven't gotten that comfortable lead against lesser opponents. It's great to expect to win every week, but you still have to respect the ability of any opponent to whip you if you don't show up and give your best effort. We often hear the players say that during the week, but they don't always display it on Saturdays.
Ole Miss is, and will likely always, be a rival.
I was in the stands for Billy Cannon's return in 1959, before most of you were born, and I really enjoyed OBJs return tonight.
Thanks for posting this, Ken.
In a couple of threads, I tried to convince folks that rivialry was in the eyes of the beholder. Ole Miss has always looked forward to this match up.
I, too, was in the stands during that Cannon run.
One of the cardinal rules in the SEC is anybody on a given day ....
It was an exciting and, at times, ugly game. Time to go to Fayetteville.
76, I completely agree on a rivalry being in the eyes of the beholder. Although I don't happen to think this is a rivalry, I certainly wouldn't fault anyone for believing it is. I know lots of people who think we have a rivalry with Tulane, and I've never thought of them as one either.
I was not in the stands for the Cannon run, nor was I even born yet lol.
You're going to have the carry the water for the old farts one day.
I, also, remember when Tulane was a rival, too. I remember a 63-0 pasting of Tulane in old Tulane Stadium led by Billy Cannon and Johnny Robinson.
And I remember when Dale Brown decided to stop playing them. When Tulane and Georgia Tech left the SEC, those programs began to disappear.
Freeze has done a good job with less at Ole Miss.
Actually, we beat Tulane 62-0 twice.
Yep, i remember that, Ken.
Will catch up with you and Daigle and the posse one of these days.
Let's do it!
That is like saying Tulane is still a rival. IMO
I was in the stands also and it was a rival till the late 60's not anymore.
Like I said before it is a game we hate to lose but how many people are dancing
on tables tonight because we won? To them it is a rivalry because they want to be what we are. To us it is not much different than any other SEC game.
Agree but I see us A&M turning into a huge rivalry game. LSU and TAMU is like oil and water.
It's a relief to beat Ole Miss. Not much joy in it anymore. The Bears just are not the Rebels of old.
And our biggest problem on Senior Day is we always run into a team (either OM or Arky) that considers us the team on their schedule they get the most joy out of beating. While they are sharpening their knives we are handing out flowers and going to functions with the Bengal gals. I'm not saying it's bad, just that it is what it is. Senior Day has been a tough game for us for the whole decade and especially since Les has been here. A day game in TS with a distracted team and half awake fans.
I'm just glad we survived. Thanks to the offense and a real in your face performance by our QB. Don't think I've said that in awhile. :-)

I think it is actually 3 times...
If I sounded like that, it wasn't my intention.
Tulane's programs are no longer relevant. But at one time or another, they were a factor.
I think you're on target here.
The LSU - TAM series was a bitter one in the past.
