Would things have been different for Ole Miss?


If back in the late 50s and early 60s Vaught had allowed married players to play on his teams and he was progressive enough to be the first coach to recruit black players to play in the SEC?

Could this had been enough to stay ahead of the curve as far as Ole Miss' inherent disadvantages?

Would Ole Miss still be a powerhouse in the SEC as well as on a national scale had this taken place?

probably in all likelihood it surely might be a certainty.

You should use more periods.

Agree... the once a month period for Dale Denton is not nearly enough.

When the Bear came to Bama from A&M in 1958 it was going to be a whole lot harder for Ole Miss period! What if Darrell Royal had stayed at MSU where he started and not gone to UT and the Southwest Conference? Image the Bear, Royal and Vaught all coaching in the SEC against each other. Ole Miss won the SEC in 1960, 1962 and 1963. Yeah that was 3 times in the Bear's first 6 years but he took over after that.

It has as much to do with Bryant as it does with our stubborn and backwards-looking fans and administration at the time.

Money has just as much to do with it, more than anything. Not enough to go around. My guess.

Ladies Home Journal was the only place where Ole Miss was considered dominant.

Did Mississippi A&M even field a football team during the Vaught Era?

So 1964 relegated Ole Miss to table scraps and back burner for perpetuity is what your saying?
