Oxford, Miss., is a strange place

Welcome to Bizarro World.
In this world, Ole Miss won the Southeastern Conference’s Western Division in 2003, has three football national championships, is LSU’s biggest rival and thinks it’s kosher to say things like, “The South shall rise again.”
What a truly strange existence they’ve got going on roughly 350 miles up the road in Oxford, Miss.
Well, in the real world — where the rest of us spend most of our free time — these things couldn’t be further from the truth.
Since the SEC expanded in 1991 and went to its current divisional format in 1992, the league has hosted 17 league championship games between the winners of the Eastern
Division and the Western Division. Ole Miss has never made the trip to Atlanta.
