"Feed Moncrief" Message Goes National

Ole Miss Students Take "Feed Moncrief" Message to Today Show
Ole Miss student Murray Miller, shown wearing earmuffs and standing just to right of Today Show host Matt Laurer’s shoulder, holds up a “Feed Moncrief” poster on the set of the Today Show this morning.

Ole Miss sophomore Murray Miller and five other students from The University of Mississippi carried the “Feed Moncrief” message to a national audience this morning when they showed up on the set of the Today Show during a school-sponsored visit to New York City.
Along with five male Ole Miss sophomores, Miller decided to make the sign and go to the Today Show broadcast to show support for her friends and fellow students back in Oxford who coined the “Feed Moncrief” phrase around the time of the Ole Miss/Texas home game.
“It really caught on,” Miller said. “People made T-shirts, and it kind of became the iconic phrase of this football season. We wanted to go to the show and make sure that everyone was pumped up for the Compass Bowl. It kind of represents the school spirit this season, and what is to come in the next few years.”
Miller is in New York City with the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College. Each year, the Honors College sends more than 100 sophomores to New York to do service work during the holidays.  She and the other students completed at least 10 hours of service for various agencies across the city.  Murray rang the bell for the Salvation Army in from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Murray’s Freshman Ventures team from last year won the Ventures competition, so her group was allowed to carry over their stay in New York for a few more days. She is the daughter of Cathy and Craig Miller of Jackson.
