Days After MSU Had To Take Down Billboards, UM Is Putting One Up

Ah, the billboard wars in the Magnolia State.  For the past two years, Mississippi State has tweaked Ole Miss’ nose with a series of billboards featuring everything from the motto “Our State” to a recruiting pitch stating “Play With The Best.” 

On Friday, State had to remove the “Play With The Best” billboards — even the one located smack dab in Oxford — because the NCAA doesn’t allow open recruiting pitches on billboards.

But as State’s ads go down, Ole Miss is putting a new billboard up.

The new “Super Rebels” board features photos of Eli Manning (of the New York Giants) and BenJarvus Green-Ellis (of the New England Patriots) in their red Ole Miss jerseys from their playing days.  (Click the story headline above for a better look.)

The billboard mentions only the date and location of this year’s Super Bowl, but the underlying message is pretty clear — If you want to star in Super Bowls, start your career in Oxford.

Your move, MSU.
