Ole Miss' Buckner Earns SEC Freshman of the Week | Brandt
Here's why:

Buckner, who stands 6 feet 9, averaged 9.5 points, five rebounds and three blocks in the two victories, scoring a season-high 11 points against UTEP in a 91-81 overtime victory.

Ole Miss climbs, Tennessee Tumbles | AL dot com 
Tennessee's 20-point loss to Southern Cal and Florida's loss to Richmond have propelled the Rebels to a somewhat scary position: the 2nd highest ranked Southeastern Conference basketball team in the AP poll.  Everybody knows our thoughts on Ole Miss sports programs when ranked, so we'll keep the naysaying to a minimum this morning.

2010 NFL Mock Draft: First Round Continued | Walter Football dot com
Walter Football has Greg Hardy going in the first round to the Colts with the 31st overall pick.  Their reasoning?

Defensive end is not a big need for the Colts right now. It will be a year from now when Raheem Brock and Robert Mathis are both free agents. With that in mind, Bill Polian is one of the smartest general managers in the NFL. Getting Greg Hardy this late in the first round provides incredible value. And there's definitely nothing wrong with having tons of depth on the defensive line.

Hardy falls a bit because of his injuries, but he should check out. He's still a borderline first-round prospect.

Okay, I can see that I guess.  As an aside, what in the hell is the deal with the Ole Miss logo they use and where in the hell did Walter Football stumble upon it?  An upside-down triangle affixed behind a Colonel Reb icon staning atop the words "Ole Miss" which are written, not in script, but italics?  Seriously, where did they get this?
