Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
No that's not a mistype. Rome Emmons, 83, will travel to Oxford on Saturday for his 66th straight Ole Miss-Mississippi State football game. And had it not been for car trouble way back when, it would be his 67th.
"We started in 1945 to go up to (Mississippi) State to see them play. I was living in Meridian at that time," said the retired Hattiesburg business man, "We got as far as Electric Mills, and the old car gave out on us. So, we went back to Meridian, and we didn't see that game.
"So the next year, 1946, was the first game that I saw."
Emmons has seen more Egg Bowls than most people have been alive. He's seen every high, low, win, and loss there is to see. His rebels will attempt to break a three-game losing skid with their hated in-state rivals on Saturday, but if they don't, Emmons will have no problem reminding his rivals about an even longer losing streak Ole Miss handed State.
"We hear all this stuff from State about them beating Ole Miss three times. They need to look at history a little bit," he said with a chuckle, "Until 1964, Mississippi State never won a game; from 1947 to 1964. They did tie three games, but Ole Miss won 14 games."
The Emmons family tree is painted blue and red. All three of his children attended Ole Miss, along with all three of their spouses, and all three of his grandchildren.
It hasn't been a fun last three years for the Ole Miss alum, though. Last season, the Dogs crushed the Rebels 31-3 on their own turf. Though the Rebels have lost their last three straight in 2012, they lead Vanderbilt by 17, and took LSU to the brink of upset in the bayou.
Emmons feels very confident in the direction Hugh Freeze is taking the program, and though he didn't give a score, it's not surprising what prediction he gave..."Ole Miss should win," he said.
