Our friends at TexAgs took a video road trip to The Grove at Ole Miss on Saturday prior to the Aggies’ 41-38 victory over the Rebels. And the unquestioned star was a very enthusiastic – and sloppy – Ole Miss coed named Shelby Herring who wasn’t shy about … well, anything.
Here’s some of the wisdom she imparted on the TexAgs video crew:
- Best thing about The Grove: “My favorite thing hands down about The Grove is the alcohol. It’s not always free, but it’s always there. So yeah, alcohol, hands down. Next question … I love school spirit, but let’s not get me wrong. I wouldn’t have school spirit without a couple vodka waters. (Pounds drink)… Everybody has the same mission, and the mission is we don’t care about anything but the party, and the party goes on forever. The party never ends. … Ole Miss never loses a party.”
- What “Hotty Toddy” means: “You say, ‘Roll Tide,’ we say, ‘Hotty Toddy.’ You say, ‘Go Tigers,’ we say, ‘Hotty Toddy.’ But if you want to know the more specific meaning, Hot Toddy is a drink that you drink when you’re sick. Whiskey, hot water, lemon. But that’s off topic.”
- Why Eli Manning is better than Peyton: “I think that Eli just had so much determination and so much drive and loyalty, because Peyton chose to go to Tennessee. I think that’s a little bit of a dose of some B.S.”
- Why Ole Miss is an excellent college choice: “Ole Miss is the most fun school you’ll ever go to. And when you go to a college, you’re gonna make the grades, blah blah blah. As long as you get a two-oh … It’s more about the experience, we only live once. You gotta just, like, do your thing, have your personality. Ole Miss, we may all have lower IQs. I have a higher IQ than most people – no, that’s a lie. We have fun, and we don’t ever miss the party. And Hotty Toddy, gosh almighty, who the hell are we? Hey! … (Drops mic.)”
We can’t tell if this girl is crazy or a genius. Probably a little of both.
