I still remember the first week I was at Mississippi State. I was walking to class and I saw a guy wearing a Virginia shirt…as in the University of Virginia. I thought to myself, why would somewhere wear something like that, we are on Mississippi State’s campus! You go to Mississippi State!
I met a guy in my freshman dorm who pulled for Alabama. He went to MSU games and pulled for State as well, but his first love was Bama. I know the Bulldogs don’t have the grand tradition of the Tide, but c’mon…you go to Mississippi State!
I’ve never understood how someone can go to one school, but root for another’s sports teams. I know they may only be going to a school for the academics, but why not support you school. Be true to your school! I guess it’s the same logic as someone who claims bragging rights against MSU, but having never attended a class at Ole Miss.
There are obvious exceptions such as a Bulldog going to law school at Ole Miss, or a Rebel going to Veterinary school at State.
That’s all I have to say.
