"The Grove" is a green space on the campus of the University of Mississippi. During most of the week, it is a quiet place known for its natural beauty where students sometime…s gather to relax or study. However, during the football season, it becomes the center of tailgating activity on campus. Ole Miss is renowned for its famous tailgate parties where students-particularly underclassmen-dress in their Sunday best while attending.
The University got its nickname "Ole Miss" via a contest in 1897. That same year, the student yearbook was being published for the first time. As a way to find a name for the …book, a contest was held to solicit suggestions from the student body. Elma Meek, a student at the time, submitted the winning entry of Ole Miss. Interestingly, the term "Ole Miss" is not derived from Mississippi, but was a term used by slaves for the wife of a plantation owner. This sobriquet was chosen not only for the yearbook, but also became the name by which the University is now affectionately known cited from: Chodas, Nadine.

It appears that they have an intramural but not an SEC competitive team at this time.
Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) is located in, or conjoined with the city of Oxford, Mississippi. It is located roughly 25 miles East of Batesville, MS, and 50 miles West… of Tupelo.
Ole Miss had a wrestling team in the 1970's. Nelson Neal, who had been an assistant at Wisconsin was the Head Coach. This was under the short and stormy reign of Bruiser Kin…ard as Ole Miss Athletic Director. Thane Hollington and I were the co-captains. Thane wrestled 177lbs; and I wrestled heavyweight most of the time, although I dropped down to 190lbs for the first half of the '74-75 season. The short lived wrestling program at Ole Miss did not, of course, survive Title IX, which wiped out wrestling throughout the SEC, where it had once been a fairly important sport.
