We know you're all addicted to the internet, looking for updates in Ole Miss' ongoing coaching search (Here's an update: we could hear something as early as tomorrow and as late as, oh, January. Will that do?), and like to tell jokes and post silly pictures in our comments threads with the hopes that enough of us deem them rec worthy. In fully knowing this, I feel that I have a bit of a responsibility to keep you and yours fully abreast and entertained and fully admit that I have done a poor job of fulfilling my obligations.
But I don't feel all that bad about it. It's Thanksgiving, y'all, and I've been spending the week not working, eating, drinking, and sleeping. I will spend today doing more of the same, with the notable addition of watching football. But, before all of that goes down, and while I sit here on my computer, begrudgingly watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on my mother's couch, I'm going to take care of the things we normally knock out on the Mondays and Tuesdays of football weeks.
First, the Blog Poll ballot!
The losers fell, the winners jumped up, and USC snuck in at 25 even though they're realistically much better than that. It's just tough for me to rank anybody not eligible for their conference title.
I didn't file a SEC Power Poll Ballot. Whoops. If I had, though, it would have been LSU, Bama, Arkansas, everybody else, then Ole Miss. That should shock nobody.
