Rebel Roundup - December 16, 2013

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

How about some Ole Miss Rebel news and notes to kick off your week?

So, this happened somehow:

Fun fact: the basket is credited to Sebastian Saiz because he was the closest Ole Miss player to the rim when the ball went in. They could not credit Marshall for the points because his pass wasn't an actual field goal attempt... or so they believe. #MarshallMadness

Eyes Wide Open: C.J. Hampton targeted by Bama despite Ole Miss pledge | The Clarion-Ledger
We have no idea what's going to happen to C.J. Hampton. If the blue-chip safety out of Meridian keeps his pledge to Ole Miss, that wouldn't surprise us, nor would a flip to Alabama this week. Obviously we would love to have the prospect, who is one of the top safeties in the country, sign with the Rebs in February, but that's a chicken we won't count before it hatches... or before there are two in the bushes or, uh, yeah.

Ole Miss begins bowl practice | The Clarion-Ledger
So bowl practice actually began last week, but we at the Cup were a) busy and b) not paying attention due to undesirable circumstances (see: finals). Regardless, bowl practice is on, which means that the Rebs get extra reps to both prepare for Georgia Tech and to gear up for spring ball.

Mississippi All-Stars MVP: WR Epps opens eyes during Classic | The Montgomery Advertiser
Sammie Epps is proving himself to be one of the most underrated prospects in Mississippi, as the Flex TE out of Greenwood was named the Mississippi MVP in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic this past weekend. He caught seven passes for 125 yards and score, with a few of his catches coming against Marlon Humphrey, the top cornerback in the country. He leveraged his 6'5" frame well and showed excellent hands throughout the contest. Epps remains firmly committed to Ole Miss.
