    Good morning PA..Congrats on the Blog..Really enjoy reading your comments..

  • How miserable is it to be an Ole Miss fan living in Tuscaloosa???? Much less than an Ole Miss fan living in Baton Rouge. I’ve done both. Bama is bad to the bone. When will this ever change as long as Coach Sabear is roaming the sidelines???

    Guys, thanks for checking in and making the transition with us. I’m glad to be back with WordPress. It’s a major upgrade. I’m still learning my way around and will be working out the bugs for a while. Let us know if you have questions about anything. Matt, it looks like you need to settle in and get comfortable with the idea that it’s going to be Bama’s world for a while.

  • PA, I disliked the change from WP to integrated inside djournal, but learned to love it as I scrolled through the other blog titles on the page. I am going to miss having that feature, but I think I will enjoy the site dedicated to Ole Miss. Keep at it, you are doing a great job. Hopefully we will all learn as we go and make the site that much better.

  • Thanks Adam, good to see you here and thanks for giving us ideas to make it better. We’ll be making some changes as we go. You will get back the blog page soon. Thanks again.
