Ole Miss Makes NIT | WJTV
If Ole Miss beats Illinois State, the winner of Stanford/Cleveland State, and then whoever else comes after that, then I'll legitimately consider taking the AmTrak or Bolt Bus up to New York City to watch the Rebels play in Madison Square Garden. You all should join me. It'll be fun.
SEC bubble teams all had flaws in their NCAA tournament resumes | AL.com
Mississippi State, Tennessee, and our Ole Miss all had high RPIs, but didn't have enough quality wins (or, in the case of State, too many bad losses) to earn NCAA bids. Just a couple of months ago, many thought the SEC could be a 6-bid league. Instead, we are the most underwhelming 4-bid league in recent memory. Of course, we didn't suck nearly as bad as the Pac 12. Good golly, that conference as atrocious this year.
Speaking of Mississippi State and Ole Miss missing the NCAA's, it is interesting to note that two other teams from Mississippi - Southern Miss and Mississippi Valley State - made it.

Enrique Davis Arrested
Former Houston Nutt great* Inricky Davis faces a felony charge after allegedly assaulting a Panama City police officer late last night. His assault consisted of him running, at full speed, into the cop's back, before falling forward onto his face. (Actually, he was peeing on a car in the parking lot and, when approached by an undercover cop, started elbowing people. It's as stupid as it sounds.)
*Note: a "Houston Nutt great" is a player who, only in the eyes of Houston Nutt, is great at football.
