During this particular shoot, my focus was on the 6' 2" 230 pound bruiser of a quarterback named Dak Prescott who had thus far led his Miss. State squad to 10 wins on the season. I hung out near the visitors entrance to catch Prescott walking from the team bus to the locker room down a path lined with screaming Mississippi State faithful. A) Maybe there was a good shot in there somewhere and b) so I could know what he looks like in real life. I got fooled once and started following a defensive linemen who I thought was Prescott but I got the hint when another guy came off the bus and everyone started yelling "Dak! Dak!"
We know what happened during the game but after the game was pretty much a party in Oxford. Ole Miss had just beaten their rivals as an underdog in a very important game for their opponent. There were drunken khakis, blue blazers and bow ties everywhere. I went to downtown Oxford to grab a bite to eat and encountered more than a few people walking with the grace of a zombie. Against my worst judgement, I scrapped the Oxford scene and headed to Applebee's, Chili's or Buffalo Wild Wings where things were a little quieter.
Anyway, shout out to Mississippi which gave me the opportunity to fly to Memphis and check out the Lorraine.
