Talkin' trash: Ole Miss tries throwing around corn dogs
BATON ROUGE - A rivalry is renewed with the rebirth of the Ole Miss Rebel football team and their reference to tiger fans as corn dogs.
"All LSU fans smell like corn dogs," one Ole Miss fan named Mike said. Mike refused to give his entire name.
"I don't smell like a corn dog," his LSU friend, Mickal Vogt, replied.
Recently, Ole Miss fans have taken their trash talking to new levels. Most notably, the nickname spread when singer Katy Perry went on ESPN, taunted tiger fans and tossed a corn dog at the camera.
"He's got some explaining to do with this corn dog thing," Vogt said.
LSU fans still don't understand the reference.
"Let me say that I can tolerate Ole Miss a lot better than I can Alabama," Tiger fan David Dronet said.
LSU and Ole Miss will meet at Tiger Stadium Saturday night at 6:15 p.m. on ESPN.
