This past weekend I rode home with one of my newfound college friends.

Classless is one word to describe the actions of many Ole Miss fans, especially our student body, against Alabama this past Saturday.

I would like to start by saying that I consider myself a die-hard Ole Miss fan.

The behavior of our students throwing stuff at Alabama people sitting in the student section this weekend is nothing short of embarrassing. The five Bama fans sitting in the student section got showered with liquids, along with cups and bottles thrown at them.

In response to Isaac Lichlyter’s October 8th editorial, we would like to point out some flaws in his argument.

The University of Mississippi is no stranger to criticism, especially considering its contentious past.

In fact, it seems we often spend more time defending ourselves for things that happened forty years ago than embracing the positive steps taken to erase the negative aspects of our 161-year history.

A man should treat a women with honor and respect. She is a queen, both powerful and precious.

The debate on Capitol Hill and throughout America about health care has me wondering if the people leading the opposition could pass a reading comprehension test.
