Our final two teams to weigh in on Ole Miss are Florida State and Wake Forest. Wake Forest fans showed a lot of interest as we have recenlty played them and will play them again this year. Up Next- What Rebel fans think about the ACC.

Not much interest from Maryland Fans. I was not allowed to post the questions on the Rivals site.
Here is what the Maryland fans had to say:
I for one didnt think about Ole Miss until Coach Orgeron went out there and started recruiting a bunch of our socal guys. I wayched him offer Mike Herrick when no other school in the country would and I wanted to watch his development. 3)If we were going to play an SEC team Id like for us to play one that would generate a rivalry of sorts. So some one fairly close to us like a Georgia. A place where we recruit and already play Georgia Tech.-CrespiBoylol
Don't think about Ole Miss much, but would be interesting to play you sometime. Too hot down there so you need to come up here.-ATerp
I'm an older college football fan whose first known rivalry as a kid was Army-Navy but I'd probably have to say LSU-Ole Miss was the next one I became aware of. Johnny Vaught was the Rebels coach then (late 50s-early 60s). One season, in particular, Billy Cannon beat Ole Miss with a punt return, 7-3 (or something like that) but Ole Miss stuffed them in a rematch in the Sugar Bowl, 21-0 that same season. Otherwise, the Terps haven't played too many SEC teams in the regular season over the years. A home & home with Ole Miss would probably be good competitive matchups and financially better than the ones we start with California this season. I wouldn't mind seeing it happen now with 4 ooc games but I doubt that it will. Cal, notwithstanding, we've been focussing on playing more Big East teams which makes sense for geographical reasons. Who knows what the future brings, though? Perhaps, some seasons we could play one BE team instead of 2, for an SEC team. Otherwise, it's doubtful that we'd schedule 3 BCS ooc games in a season. It's not the SEC but the ACC is tough enough. Realistically, our chances of meeting in a bowl are better, IMHO. Have a good season, Ole Miss!-Terpengr
