The only school in Mississippi that had a chance was USM. From my understanding Ole Miss and State weren't even in the running.

That is correct Henry.

If you guys get a chance read the book The Courting of Marcus Dupree by Willie Morris. It goes into the story WAY deeper than the 30 for 30. The 3 that were in the mix were USM, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Yeah, that was the case according to 30 for 30. I was just wondering if there was anything that they left out. I read somewhere that there were reports of us having a special fund in place for him.
