    Two regionals and a super regional were played last year in Starkville and Oxford. A 2020 regional likely would have been played in Starkville with MSU a top 10 team in the rankings when the season was stopped.

    They could also go back to the old Magnolia tree flag that is actually the flag they had during the civil war.

    Mississippi will go back to its Civil War era flag.

    They are changing the name of the library at l s u - you can bet that the mob will go after “fighting tigers” here soon - the radicals are starting to eat themselves.

    Re: No post-season play in MS until flag is changed

    Who here lives in Mississippi?

    After doing some thinking on the matter, I've decided that my opinion about this mean nothing. I don't live in Mississippi, I live in Arkansas (and hope to get back to Louisiana soon). So a democratic decision by the people of MS is up to them and them only. If they want to change it, I'll respect that, and if they decide to keep it, we should respect that as well.

    My only concern is that this be a democratic process, not a fiat one.

    Yep! the Confederate First National flag, the true "Stars and Bars"!

    I like it. That's a nice flag for Georgia

    Re: No post-season play in MS until flag is changed

    Yes, the true origin of "The Fightin' Tigers" LSU's mascot/nickname honors the Louisiana soldiers who went to Virginia to fight for the Confederacy. It began with the 1st Special Battalion commanded by Major Robodeau Wheat. He had two companies of professional soldiers, mercenaries known as "the Tiger Rifles." They were just back from fighting in the Italian civil war with General Garibaldi and returned to New Orleans about the time the armies were mustering in. He was asked to secure the services of two more companies, at least, to form a battalion. One of those companies were The Old Dominion Guards, commanded by Captain Obediah Miller, my great, great, grandfather on my dad's mother's side of the family. So famous, and infamous, they became during the first year of the war, after that all Louisiana units assigned to Virginia became known as "the Tigers." But officially, it was really only Wheat's Battalion.

    So, when LSU some time back in the 1920's or whenever it was, picked a nickname, do you really believe they chose a Bengal Tiger which was not even indigenous to the state? They could have accurately selected Bobcats, Gators, Black Bears (there was a HUGE black bear population in Louisiana at one time) or Water Moccasins! But Tigers? Ah, nope! Unless they were named in honor of the famous Tiger Rifles!

    There is a beautiful cemetery in Natchez, Ms. that was vandalized a couple of days ago. There is a statue of an angel known as the Turning Angel. It was erected after a fire in downtown Natchez killed 5 kids in 1906. It was knocked down off it's pedestal and damaged badly. Since Natchez is known for it's Old South heritage, including many beautiful antebellum mansions, it has apparently become a target for anything Old South. It has a "pilgrimage" twice a year to honor the old South customs and such. No one has been arrested as of yet, but you can bet it has something to do with the vile mood of such groups as BLM.

    All of my family, all the way back to my great-great grandparents are buried in this cemetery. It upsets me deeply that these thugs think this is OK.

    Damn, I hate to hear this. I had a lengthy engagement for a company in that area and the company provided lodging for us in Natchez, right across from the cemetery. We used to get our exercise walking in the cemetery. There is some incredible history buried there.

    We have had things stolen...in some cases "taken" from our family plot in the American Cemetery in Natchitoches. Not everything removed has been "stolen." It upsets my wife at times when something goes missing. But, in some cases, maybe in every case, it's one of our daughter's friends or acquaintances, someone who knew her, who was touched by her, maybe someone she barely knew but with her magical personality she touched them in some way. That's what I think. They visit her gravesite and remove some keepsake, something they can cherish. Over 90% of the stuff out there was put there by someone else anyway.

    The biggest monument, the most obvious is a large marble tomb....very nice...the final resting place of a Gideon Lewis. I think he's Gideon Lewis III. A black man who was a wealthy plantation and slave owner along the Cane River. There are some other prominent folks buried there. There are two Confederate graves as well, local Natchitoches men who fought for the South. And the famous and much disputed "Indian Princess" grave. Love folklore...who knows what is really true?

    There has been some random vandalizing over the years there. The cemetery association built a very nice wrought-iron fence around it with timed locks on the two main gates. The gate automatically closes when you go through it and an electronic lock is timed to set at 9PM and unlock at 6AM. There is a driveway with huge gates that is manually locked and opened, only during daylight hours.

    Leave the dead alone, I say. There is nothing more you can do to them, and nothing they can do to you.
