Rebel fans, winning in all phases Friday
The Ole Miss players werent the only ones setting records at the Cotton Bowl on Friday, it seems the Ole Miss fans, immediately after their team’s pasting of #7 ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders, took to the watering holes of the greater Dallas Metro Area to set a few historic marks of their own. The Atrium Bar at the Hyatt, one of the Ole Miss fan hotels, reported that victorious Ole Miss faithful went all Wild Rebel on the bar and set a record for money spent on booze in one night, the grand bar tab total coming to a little over $29,000. That record came two days after those same fans tied the one night record by dropping $26,000 at the bar on New Years and, not to be a fan base to rest on their laurels, dropped an additional $27, 000 the night before the game. The Atrium Bar has been open for 30 years.
