They are similar but the new generation of OM alumi are OOS people. ATL, Dallas, Nashville, St. Louis, etc., poeople are pretty different from Rankin county and the delta.
Also MSU was created out of envy of OM and it shows in the culture. I have had numerous people tell me that they would be happy to have MSU and OM lose rather than OM and State both win. OM fans either don't care about state or are too busy being eternal pessimeist to care.
