Erving Walker will bring his knowledge of karate to Oxford tonight, as the Florida Gators take on our Rebels in the Tad Pad. Students and Oxonians, there is no excuse for there to be an empty seat in that place.

Bo Wallace Cited for Minor in Possession | The Clarion Ledger
Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace got an MIP last night at Roosters. To our detractors, this is prima facie evidence that Bo Wallace is a "thug" and wholly unfit to quarterback an SEC team. Which is fine, whatever. I'll let them wallow in their stupid Schadenfreude.

Oxford listed as the 15th fastest growing city in America | Forbes
According to this, Oxford's 2010 population was 47,351, which is far, far higher than I would have imagined. I'm assuming that they're counting univeristy students (many of which aren't technically residents of Oxford) in that figure, because Oxford certainly doesn't have the look or feel of a town with any more than 30K.
