Ole Miss Lingo: Part 2

Hi POM family! Below, we have explained a few "Ole Missisms" to help you understand what your kid might be talking about when they start yelling Hotty Toddy and slapping HYDR stickers on their cars. This is Part 2 of our Ole Miss Lingo series! If you missed Part 1, read it here!

Hotty Toddy Cheer

If you hear an Ole Miss fan shout, “ARE YOU READY?” naturally, you respond with the Hotty Toddy Cheer:

Hell yeah! Damn Right!

Hotty Toddy, Gosh almighty, Who the hell are we? Hey!

Flim Flam, BimBam, Ole Miss, By Damn!

Fins Up!

The new Ole Miss Landshark mascot was nicknamed Tony after Tony Fein, the first Ole Miss player to throw “Fins Up,” which has since become the battle cry of the Ole Miss Rebel Defense. Tony the mascot represents Fein by wearing number 47 on his jersey.

Speed Limit 18

The speed limit on the Ole Miss campus is 18 mph in honor of former Ole Miss great Archie Manning.


This stands for Nasty Wide Outs, an identity the Ole Miss wide receivers, including AJ Brown, DK Metcalf and Demarkus Lodge, took on within the past year. Wide receiver coach Jacob Peeler coined the idea of a WWE-style championship belt that wide receivers compete to earn each week. Replica belts made by fans can be found in the stands of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and one of the most iconic stables in wrestling history displays on the jumbotron whenever a receiver makes a significant play.


Hell yeah, damn right. It’s part of the Hotty Toddy cheer (see above!).
