Rebel Roundup - 8/12/09

You've Been Assimilated into the Borg, Spencer
While not necessarily Ole Miss related, I do want to give big ups to whoever at SBNation trapped, beat, and forced convinced Spencer Hall/Orson Swindle to be a part of our network.  I cannot believe that Juco and I were initially skeptical about making this move when we did.

Defense dominates Tuesday practice | Inside The Grove
Ty brings you his take on yesterday's practice at InsideTheGrove.  He does a good job of focusing on the success of a few defensive freshmen in particular. 

Bowl Projection - College Football | ESPN
Mark Schlabach, Bruce Feldman, and Chris Low all say the Rebels are Sugar Bowl bound.  When considering the fact that last year's Sugar Bowl participant had a 12-0 regular season, I'll take it.  The trio of ESPN college football prognosticators obviously don't think our Rebels will lose very many games this fall.

Steelers' rookie receiver proving to be a fast learner | Post Gazette

Iraq veteran Fein battling for spot on Ravens roster | Carroll County Times

And, Just for Shiggles
Here's a picture of Nick Saban signing a baby.  Congratulations, Alabama.
