Ole Miss Makes Southern Living Top Tailgate List

Ole Miss has been selected as one of the top 20 schools for "The South's Best Tailgate" by Southern Living magazine.

The Southern Living editors huddled together to post a roster of the top 20 Southern schools with the best tailgates, and of course The Grove was tabbed among them.

They're letting fans ultimately choose the winner. Rebel fans can vote daily for Ole Miss from August 15-October 1 at southernliving.com/tailgate or via smartphone by downloading the complimentary Digimarc Discover app.  Simply scan the corresponding text in the September issue. One vote per day is counted toward the final tally. Votes placed on Saturdays count twice toward the final tally.

The winner will be crowned "The South's Best Tailgate" at a home game by November 10. The September issue featuring the schools in the running for "The South's Best Tailgate" title hits newsstands August 24.

Southern Living chose the roster of universities vying to win "The South's Best Tailgate" based on the following criteria:

-      Most Spirited: Schools that turn "fan" into "fanatic."

-      Traditionalists: Schools renowned for game-day rituals.

-    Powerhouses: Southern schools with a history of winning on and off the field (chosen based on the most bowl victories).

-      Style Setters: From sundresses to cake stands, these schools showcase true splendor in the grass.

Here are the 20 schools that made the list:

Auburn University: Boasts an entire Wikipedia page devoted to pregame rituals.

Clemson University: Caps off pre-gaming with one of the best player entrances in college football.

Grambling State University: Turns its rival match up into a weeklong extravaganza.

Hampden-Sydney College: Inspired a Brooks Brothers ad with its well-dressed "Hillgaters."

Louisiana State University: Enlists RVs and crawfish boils to cook up a massive tailgate.

McDaniel College: Houses the nation's only drive-in stadium.

Mississippi State University: Treats its friendly fan base to ice cream made on-campus.

Southern Methodist University: "Boulevards" instead of tailgates with stylish barbecues.

Texas A&M: Wakes the school up at midnight on game day with "The Midnight Yell."

University of Alabama: Packs tents 1,000-deep on the Quad each Saturday.

University of Arkansas: Claims two football stadiums in different cities.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
