Another (not so) Fine Mess

Last year our Mississippi Mud turned into a Mississippi mess. But hey! We won! This year, the dessert held up better, but our team fell apart like wet silt in the delta.

Here’s another fine mess, all right.

We fell behind early but then came to life, showing flashes of offensive prowess and some of the ol’ stonewall D. We had a slim lead heading into the locker room at halftime, but in the 3rd, gave up 20 unanswered points. The stands emptied, as did our hopes that firing our defensive coordinator would change things. Blech.

Still, the day was not a total loss. We had a HUGE tailgate with great food, some fun game-watching and plenty of Longhorn fans, not to mention a gaggle of friendly hoity toity Hotty Toddy types. (A couple of our Ole Miss visitors had hosted some of our Texas crew in the Grove last year. It was good to visit with them!)
