Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is ...
On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited will you be if the Lady Rebels win the SEC Soccer Tournament this weekend?
... with 1 being "the SEC plays women's soccer?"
With Northern Arizona University Love Week well underway for the football team, basketball season still a few weeks away, and Barnabas Kirui having already pulled the "Rebel SEChampionhip-o-meter" up to 1 with his individual title in Men's Cross Country, Lady Rebel Soccer deserves some spotlight!
Steve Holeman's squad is having one of its finest seasons yet, as their 7-2-2 conference record was the second-best in team history. The Lady Rebels finished just behind LSU for the Western Division crown, but beat SEC regular season champion Florida for the first time since futbol was football. FotC and little league soccer coach Role Player nicely summarized the season highlights earlier this week.
Now post-season play has begun. The Lady Rebels will have decent seeding for the NCAA tournament, but are, no doubt, focused on this weekend's SEC Tournament in well-known soccer mecca Orange Beach, Ala. The opening round match-up on Wednesday for Ole Miss is against the Auburn Tigers (revengeku). The Lady Tigers went down against the Red and Blue in late September 3-2 and would likely face LSU in the semi-finals. Auburn and Ole Miss play at 5:00 CST - after the media relations people have gone home - so you can, no joke, hear it here first when the Lady Rebels notch the victory.
