Who would have thought it? In one of those David-versus-Goliath matches on the opening week of the college football field, David won, and David’s name is Jacksonville State University. I am proud because I graduated from Jacksonville more years ago than I would like to count. And, as ESPN cut away to cover the second overtime, the sound of the JSU Marching Southerners was prominent in the background.
Clips of those final moments are floating about today, but in order to provide a place where that special moment in JSU football history will always be housed, today’s post is devoted to providing just such a spot.
Congratulations to the Jacksonville State University Gamecocks on what may well be the biggest win in their history as they defeated Ole Miss in double overtime.

Frank, You’re awesome!!!! Thanks so much for posting this. I always look forward to receiving your newsletters, etc. since I saw you 2 summers ago in B’ham (Technology Conference). Keep us informed and keep posting JSU articles! Maybe add the stuff about Southerners getting the Queen’s London Anniversary Trip.

Thanks for the kind words. This was certainly a big day for JSU. Glad to be able to share the clip.
