Today's Rebel Roundup is Brought to you by Lipton's
I'm sitting here in my brother's Oxford town house, nursing a sore throat with a delicious cup of hot green tea, and generally wishing the festivities of the weekend that was would have never come to a close. Also, I aInT gOtTa Go To WoRk so that's pretty awesome as well. While I'm still in Mississippi and Louisiana over the next few days, I'm going to make sure to get as much Southern Pecan, fried catfish, and biscuits and gravy in my belly as possible. Wish me luck.

And this one is a fun read on the go-ahead touchdown score involving the tricky pass from Dex to Shay.

Congrats, Dex. You earned that one.
Rebels Drop Title Game To No. 5 Villanova | OleMissSports.com
Chris Warren scored 24 points, but No. 5 Villanova used a big second half to hand Ole Miss a 79-67 loss in the championship game of the 2009 O'Reilly Auto Parts Puerto Rico Tip-Off. Lost in the fray of the frustration we Rebel basketball fans feel from the game last night is the fact that we played the number five team in the nation. I know it's a bit defeatist of an approach, but we still performed very well in those circumstances, despite the loss. Yes, the frustration is compounded by the fact that we did maintain leads and we did even have the game knotted up at half, but all things considered, I'm proud of Kennedy's squad so far.
