After the Rebels beat Georgia 72-71 on Saturday, Davis said he supported their decision.

"On Saturday afternoon between 1-5 p.m., we urge everyone to avoid the area of University Avenue and University Circle", the announcement said.

The decision to kneel was to protest a pro-Confederate rally at Oxford Square, less than a mile from The Pavilion, where the game took place. "For over a decade the administration and faculty have completely disregarded and disrespected the traditions of a once great southern university". In 2009, the pep band stopped playing the popular school anthem "From Dixie with Love", a Confederate ode set to the tune of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic", whose lyrics cry, "The South will rise again".

"If you are fed up with this Political Correctness BS and sick and exhausted of this mess happening then please join us", organizers wrote on the Facebook page.

For days, the group Confederate 901 based in Memphis has been posting about their event they're calling Mississippi Stands.

Friday's flight reached a height of at least 240,000 feet, or 45.4 miles, which does not meet the FAA's definition of space. Back then, the mission was notable for being the first crewed spaceflight to take place from American soil since 2011.

"We do Patriot [expletive]", reads the succinct "About" section on the Hiwaymen's official Facebook page.

Twitter users posted photos of the pro-Confederate monument rally on Saturday, in which a small group of people - including at least one holding a Confederate flag - can be seen.

Ole Miss knew about the protest, but still chose to go through with Saturday's game.

In 2014, the university designatedthe "Ole Miss" moniker specifically for athletics and school spirit uses.

In addition to reassuring security concerns, the message also said SASI's rally scheduled for 3 p.m.is continuing as scheduled. The groups was kept separated from about 50 counterprotesters, and there were no reports of violence.
