College football at its finest
Noon Saturday was Christmas central in the little town of Bellefontaine. I was already geared up to take photos of Santa’s official arrival in town and the Orr Mansion open house, but I also had something else on my mind.
Beneath my fluffy winter coat was hidden one of my favorite T-shirts — a yellow one with the Southern Miss Golden Eagles logo on it. The DVR was set to record the game that began at the same hour.
No one in Bellefontaine even knew or much less cared about that game, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the university I used to cover as a reporter in Hattiesburg, Miss.
