Historical Evidence That This Game Has Been Played at 11:30 Since 1794:

I crawled through the the cobwebs of my ever-fading memory and determined that from the 1998-2010 seasons, Ole Miss and Vandy played at JP Standard Time 10 out of a possible 13 times, including nine straight from '98-'06 (I don't know what the hell happened from 2007-2009). The 2011 version makes 11 of 14 times. Because of this, I will hate Dave Neal for as long as my lungs are filled with air, which is a shame, because he seems like a nice man.

  1. I remember a few years ago Ole Miss and Vandy actually played at night on one of ESPN's 97 channels. It was totally wrong and uncomfortable to see.
