If you have never had the pleasure of experiencing a game day in the Grove, you may be unfamiliar with what the phrase “Hotty Toddy” is. Let me explain.

From signs to cups and even the sides of  restrooms, the phrase “Hotty Toddy” is seen everywhere in the Grove on game day. Fans will say it to one another as a greeting, or as a reference to a group of attractive Ole Miss tailgaters. When I was in Oxford for the Texas game, I overheard several different conversations among Texas fans about “Hotty Toddy”. To be clear Hotty Toddy is not the same as a Hot Toddy.  Every fan base has a word or phrase that means something to them. It is a part of their game day language. If you aren’t fluent in Ole Miss then here is what you need to know about Hotty Toddy.

Hotty Toddy is a part of a cheer that Ole Miss fans do. It begins with someone yelling

“Are you READY?”

the crowd then responds with


Hotty Toddy, Gosh almighty
Who the hell are we, Hey!
Flim Flam, Bim Bam

Here is the cheer in action.
