What the Hell is that chant all about….
The Grove is the legendary tailgating area located at the center of the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) campus. It is approximately 10 acres (4.0 ha) in size. “The Grove” takes its name from the oak, elm and magnolia trees surrounding the area.
Surrounded by ancient oaks, mysterious elms, and Mississippi magnolias, the Southern legend known as “The Grove” graciously plays host, most autumn Saturday afternoons, to thousands of Ole Miss Rebel tailgaters.
It you happen to attend an Ole Miss game…every now and then, a loud voice breaks the hum of the crowd present in The Grove with the yell, “Are you READY?” This is the beginning of the Ole Miss cheer, known as “Hotty Toddy.”
On cue, hundreds of fans reply, “HELLLLL YEAH! DAAAAMN RIGHT!” Then, in unison, they begin to chant the Hotty Toddy cheer
Hotty Toddy, Gosh almighty
Who the hell are we, Hey!
Flim Flam, Bim Bam
OLE MISS BY DAMN!’
The Hot Toddy Cocktail
You can use any kind of whiskey you like in the warm and comforting classic Hot Toddy recipe.
- Boiling water
- 4 to 6 Cloves
- 1 Lemon twist
- 2 tsp Demerara sugar or brown sugar
- .25 oz Lemon juice
- 2 oz Bourbon, rye whiskey, Irish whiskey or Scotch
Fill a mug with boiling water and let stand for a minute or two to warm. Meanwhile, stick the cloves into the lemon twist and set aside. Empty the mug and fill about halfway with fresh boiling water. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Add the prepared lemon twist and stir. Add the lemon juice and whiskey, and stir again.
The Top Ten Strange and Unusual College Traditions
♦Florida State University’s Sod Cemetery
Believe it or not, FSU has a small cemetery (with headstones and all) for dead pieces of sod. Dating back to 1962, this bizarre cemetery was born when professor Dean Coyle Moore dared the football team to bring back sod from Sanford Stadium’s football field.
Gene McDowell, the team captain, followed through with this challenge, and when Moore was given the chunk of grass, he buried it at the FSU practice field to commemorate the team’s recent victory. The practice of sod stealing continues to this day, where captains are expected to bring back a piece of the opposing team’s field.
Don’t worry though; FSU only takes turf from the University of Florida, teams they are expected to lose against, and teams they face in the ACC championship and bowl games… Yup, that’s it.
Hate to burst your bubble Katy…but college quarterback crush is taken!
Katy Perry can put her phone away because..unfortunately “maybe…most likely won’t call!”
Hell, yeah! Damn Right!
Katy who was attending her first college game…was the guest picker on ESPN’s College Gameday show at Ole Miss today.
She came prepared with drinks and corn dogs!
During her whacky yet very entertaining appearance…the “Fireworks” singer made it clear…she’s got a think for Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight.
Sooners 23 – Horned Frogs 37
According to reports….Knight’s girlfriend Kate Williams has brains, beauty and a body “to die for.”
Her name is Kate Williams and from what we’ve been told…they’ve been a couple for over a year!
After years of teases and near-misses, “ESPN College Gameday” was finally live in Oxford, Miss. this Saturday for No. 10 Ole Miss’ game against No. 3 Alabama.
Today’s College Game Day Presentation at “The Grove“ featured singer Katy Perry as the celebrity guest picker. The 30-year-old singer…who was attending her first college gave ever…weighed in on some other big games today.
Alabama 17 vs. Ole Miss 23 (FINAL)
For Oklahoma’s sake lets hope that the Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight didn’t see the show. If he did…he may find himself a little distracted. Katy Perry made it known that despite the fact that he’s 10 years younger…he’s her college football crush!
Katy weighed in on some other big games today…however, the highlights of her appearance came when she….
♦Appeared with drinks for the guys and was sporting a pink fuzzy looking jersey sweater!
♦Picked Oklahoma over TCU based on “looks,” and asked Sooners QB Trevor Knight to call her.
♦Threw her first corndog at the camera.
♦Made a somewhat- cocky NSFW reference to South Carolina’s mascot.
♦Ripped the elephant mascot head off Lee Corso and then threw the remaining plate of corn dogs at the cameras as the pregame show cutaway to Texas A&M-Mississippi State.
