Well, I was there too, but only 9 years old, and I was from Jackson, Miss. We had been to the '58 game the year before but I don't remember it well. Being that young I don't recall all the particulars but we did sit on the east side about the south 20. The Ole Miss team bus pulled up near the north end and people were going crazy yelling at the players and beating on it. Charlie Flowers was the big time OM fullback that year and the signs read that a Cannon is stronger than a Flower, or something like that. Pretty exciting for a kid in the late '50s. There were several Rebel flags burned in the south end zone. The halftime show featured a huge birthday cake, it was LSU's 100th anniversary. And I remember the place going nuts when Billy C. made his run. What a game, that's when I became a life-long Tiger fan.
