Even If You Don't Follow College Football, I Highly Recommend Watching This

To the fans of Ole Miss I say, "Uh, sorry." To the detractors I say, "You're welcome."

And for those of you unfamiliar with Ole Miss football Coach Ed Orgeron, here's a description of an infamous incident in which he addressed his players, after having ripped his shirt off (courtesy of Southern Papa):

"When I point to this side of the room, I want you to say 'Ole Miss.' When I point to this side, I want you to say, 'Wild Boys.'" Standing there with no shirt on with every guy in the room shirtless, started pointing to each side of the room. Half the team would yell, "Ole Miss" while the other would yell "Wild Boys." Apparently it got pretty crazy and guys started flipping chairs, yelling, and throwing coolers across the room while chanting Ole Miss... Wild Boys. ""He then stopped and said, "One more thing. If any of you motherf*****s thinks you can take me, you come up here and get a piece of me right now. He gave everyone an opportunity to come up and fight him and said, "That's what I thought," and walked out of the room."

Sweet, sweet Coach O, the man who makes Mike Leach look way less batsh** insane.

have you read the new Michael Lewis book, The Blind Side? a great read about Michael Oher, the Ole Miss left tackle. Lots of funny details about Coach O, too.

Nope. I read the NYT piece on him from a couple months ago, but not the book. I'm reading "Friday Night Lights" right now, so maybe I'll stick with the football theme when I'm done.

Thanks for the HT. Ed is so eccentric he's lovable.

Also if you want to get into the football experience, check out the link to Orson & Stranko I have at They are the great pundits of college football, even if they are Florida Gator fans. They link to nearly all the important sites.

IN addition, you really need to go to Youtube and look for the "Colonel Reb is crying" song. Make sure that you can laugh for at least 15 minutes before listening.

My apologies - I didn;t realize you had linked the Youtube clip here. It's what happens with jetlag.
