I'm Back
There's bloggin to do. Thanks for being patient with me while I wasted time in wine country.

Ole Miss hires Ramey Agency for 'branding' | The Commercial Appeal
Jim Ebel, the university's Chief Marketing Officer, is leaving. That means that somebody's got a role to fill and, instead of hiring or promoting someone to act in an interim role, Chancellor Jones has asked the Jackson, MS Ramey Agency to step in. I'm not entirely certain what the end goal of this is, but I think that we're all well aware of the impact that successful marketing can have on collegiate sports programs.

Meador Pulls the Trigger | Scout
Offensive tackle Jake Meador out of Whiteland, Indiana (oxymoron much?), announced his commitment to Ole Miss this past weekend. Even though he hasn't yet begun his senior year in high school, Meador's got the body of a college lineman, standing at 6'7" and weighing 300 pounds. If you're into stargazin, he's a four-star on Rivals, a three-star on Scout, and a three-star with a rating of 77 on ESPN. Really, all that matters is that he's a prototypical Mike Markuson/Houston Nutt lineman. He's big and strong and much prefers the brawn over finesse or technique.

Rebels and Fedfish | SunHerald.com
Some guy took Mike Markuson, James Shibest, and Terry Price fishing for snapper in the gulf, and some other guy working for the Sun Herald decided to write a column about it. [Let's hope they reeled in some fish like they reel in the recruits AMIRITE!?!?! HFT Y'ALL!! /omspirit'd] Check the picture; Terry Price looks frattier than hell in his light blue fishing shirt. And, yes, we're struggling for news clips to share with y'all.

Reese makes it 4 straight U.S. titles in long jump | Clarion Ledger
Brittney Reese, the former Ole Miss track star and 2008 olympian won her fourth straight US title in the long jump. Get money, Brittney.
