 SBNation's Comprehensive, Encyclopedic SEC Preview | TeamSpeedKills.com
TSK somehow corralled all of SBN's SEC bloggeurs for a few in order to put together a nice rundown of the upcoming season.  You won't like where Ole Miss is picked, nor the length of my "blurb" (I really didn't know they wanted, you know, moreinformation), but it is an excellent compilation of opinions nonetheless.

The Quad Countdown: No. 13 Mississippi | The Quad Blog - NYTimes.com
This may be the single greatest neutrally stanced preseason writeup on Ole Miss, ever.  Ok, yeah, bit of a stretch there, but it is still very good.  Not only does this guy call Oxford "perhaps America’s most beautiful college town" (take that, Arkansassholes), but he also demonstrates, via excellent writing, that he has done his college football research.  If you haven't read this yet, do it.

2009 SI Conference Report: SEC | SI.com
Sports Illustrated, in keeping line with their regional cover selections, has picked the Rebels to finish atop the SEC West this fall.  They don't necessarily elucidate that in their conference report, but we'll take it.

Scout.com: Sallee Blog: 2009 SEC Predictions
Do you really want to keep reading this stuff?  I mean, because I'll keep on putting it up here.  You do?  Fine.  The Sallee Blog on CFN.com predicts the Rebels to finish 11-1 with the lone loss coming at the hand of the South Carolina Gamecocks.  Sallee also picks Alabama to finish at 3rd in the West which ain't happnin' mawfukka ROLL TAHD

Video: Previewing the SEC | ESPN
Kirt Herbstriedt, who was all about some Ole Miss and (especially) Jevan Snead a few months ago, now selects Alabama as his favorite to win the West.  His reasoning: "How will Ole Miss handle expectations."   Am I the only one who is absolutely fucking tired of that completely baseless, lazy, and trite meme?

Seattle Seahawks lose C Chris Spencer to injured quadriceps | ESPN
Seattle Seahawks starting center and former Ole Miss Rebel Chris Spencer suffered an injury recently.  He is currently undergoing tests to determine just how long he will be out.  Godspeed, Chris.  Oh, and for whatever it may be worth, during the NFL season we're going to bring to you a weekly segment entitled "Rebels in the Pros" or something like that to keep you abreast of these kinds of things.

Gulfport native and former NCAA champion Ole Miss Rebel Brittney Reese has captured the women’s long jump championship at the World Track and Field Championships in Berlin.  G'on girl!   /racism
