Rebel Roundup - May 20, 2013

Ole Miss Rebel news and notes looks at Rebel baseball's series loss at LSU and their upcoming appearance in the SEC Baseball Tournament against Kentucky.

LSU has a blast in 11-9 loss to Ole Miss | The Town Talk
So we avoided the sweep against LSU by winning 11-9 on Saturday. LSU, however, wasn't exactly trotting the A-team out there, as guys like Mason Katz and Raph Rhymes were on the bench once the series was won for the Bayou Bengals. And consider this - we're ranked as a top-20 team in college baseball. We're not exactly a bad baseball team. It's just that the level of talent separating the top-5 teams from the rest of the top-25 is unreal right now. Regardless of all that though, Ole Miss ended the season with a .500 record in conference as the No. 6 seed in the SEC Tournament. Perhaps it's not what we were expecting months ago, but we aren't exactly in bad position right now as far as the postseason is concerned.

Oh, and here's Raph Rhymes scoring an inside-the-park home run while somersaulting over Stuart Turner. It's kinda neat.

Baseball Opens SEC Tourney With Six-Seed Ole Miss | Kentucky Wildcats Official Athletic Site
It's like deja vu all over again. If you'll recall, the Rebels opened the SEC Baseball Tournament last season with a berth against Kentucky, losing to the Wildcats and failing to advance. This season, the first round of the tournament consists of play-in games, meaning that the Rebels must win in order to proceed to the double elimination portion of the tourney. And while Kentucky might just be 11-19 in SEC play, they did take two of three from our Rebels last month in Oxford.

Eli Manning Not Being Himself | (I can't believe I'm linking this...) TMZ

The idiots at TMZ - perhaps the most narcissistic, purposeless, and vapid show in the history of American television - harassed some guy at LAX who they thought was Eli Manning. The guy wasn't Eli Manning, but that didn't stop them from calling the guy "standoffish" because, you know, approaching strangers at a damned airport is the best way to gauge their enthusiasm and character.
