Because I have to get back to watching my Eagles :)
I married a Mississippi State graduate. I get it. I like State. Hubs and I consider ourselves to "be on each other's team" - and since I graduated from Southern Miss (C-USA), this is usually not a problem.
Today Southern Miss faces off with Mississippi State - for the first time in roughly 30 years (give or take a few years).
I'm a Southern Miss girl through and through.
I worked for the University while in grad school, and my first full-time job was at Southern Miss.
I was in love with Football and Baseball season.
And my brother is currently on the football coaching staff at Southern Miss.
UPDATE: I just saw him on TV! #proudsister
Regardless of the outcome tonight, I still wear my black and gold with pride.
...and likely a big goofy expression on my face.
Now if you'll excuse me, the smack talk has already started in our household.
