Ole Miss combines health services into one department | Ole Miss sports
What does this mean?
Ole Miss Athletics has created the unit for Health and Sports Performance, which combines all of the necessary services for optimal health performance into one complete collaborative department.
A big part of this move involves the hire of Pat Jernigan tohead the athletic training programs for the football team (note, this isn't strength and conditioning, but rather things involving overall cardiovascular and musculoskeletal health). Pat was an associate trainer for the Tampa Bay Bucaneers for over ten years. Again, AD Ross Bjork has hired someone based on their qualifications and experience, and not necessarily their ties to Ole Miss. I still really haven't gotten used to this whole "running an athletics department in a professional, innovative, and competent manner" deal just yet.
Also, according to the Twitters, the expansion of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium will include some sort of a clocktower which will have a victory bell, a la those at Georgia and Alabama. Sounds neat enough.
@RedCupRebellion some exciting news out of last night's meeting. $1M dollar Victory Bell to be added on to NEZ expansion in the Vaught.— Blake Kirby (@blakekirbyreb) July 11, 2012
@blakekirbyreb's tweet was a natural response to my bitching about low-fat mayonnaise.

Tate Blackman, a shortstop out of Altamonte Springs (Lake Brantley), FL and an Ole Miss Rebel commit, is ranked by Perfect Game as the number one middle infielder in America for his high school class. So, yeah, he'll probably be drafted out from under us. Oh well.
