But not anymore, thanks to Kylin.

The best part is imagining all the racists who shit themselves when they realized that they may never win another game.
It hasn't been changed yet, and I don't think anyone is giving Kylin Hill all of the credit for the MS House vote. A lot of people have been working on this.

Faith Hill (no relation ;) ) even called for change two days ago:

Faith Hill was/is one of the world's most beautiful women, but I'll go with the idea that a star college football player might have more of an impact on all those Ol' Miss alums and wannabes in the legislature.

Lots of people involved, but the real momentum came Monday. Within a couple of days the coaches were on board.
You don't get any more important in Alabama or Mississippi than football players and coaches.

I think it's done

They keep trying. Ol Miss is paying their head coach 4 million a year and State is paying 5 million. Football is very important.

My kid says the sec decision not to have the baseball tournament there is what did it.
Granted, there were lots of reasons

The NCAA rapidly followed suit, for all tournaments:
viewtopic.php?p=122662#p122662

It does look like the MS schools do better in baseball than other sports:
... On Thursday, the SEC announced it would no longer hold conference-sponsored championship events in Mississippi until the state flag is changed. The move came with calls for change from administrators at both Ole Miss and Mississippi State, but lacked real consequences. None of the SEC's high-profile events are held in Mississippi.

But both schools consistently field highly ranked baseball teams and host NCAA tournament games. Mississippi State's women's basketball team has hosted early round NCAA games four times since 2010....

In a joint statement, the presidents and chancellors of Mississippi's public institutions vowed to work to change the state flag....
Makes sense that it would have an impact. Does anyone go to Mississippi other than for sports? :D

Ouch!
Seems like more than...
Don't let your sons play for DJ Durkin - Chicago Tribune
Parents, don't send your kids to Maryland to play football. Just don't do it. It's not a university, it's a canker sore with a couple of dormitories strapped to its suppurating side. Don't let your son so much as look at an application. At best he will get all the wrong lessons in manhood, take courses in deceit, and spinelessness. At worst he may wind up twitching on the ground, or even in a hospital issuing a death hiss. It's not a safe place for athletes, or students. It's a place for belly snakes. To quote Bette Davis, "What a dump."
https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/c ... story.html
More from the Chicago Tribune: At Maryland, your son will not be in the care of responsible administrators, but rather sneaking infighters and influence peddlers who debase and dirty a university education. Whose combination of arrogance and lethal stupidity has made them a national laughingstock, yet who don't even realize it.

Does this description of the College Park salvage yard — I won't dignify it with the term campus — sound harsh? To the ears of Jordan McNair's parents, it doesn't even begin.

Something Maryland and the state of Illinois have been accustomed to, not having football.

Idk.
Probably not college.
MAYBE there's enough pro money to cobble together teams with players and staff willing to be quarantined.

I considered posting that.

It's not just football. Clemson won't open as planned due to the SC surge. Maybe 1 FAT CAN will call them wimps, too.

I don't see any significant amount of any contact sport without an effective vaccine.
