Rebel Roundup - 1/5/10

Rich Brooks Retires |
In the biggest Southeastern Conference story of the new decade, Rich Brooks is stepping down at Kentucky.  Joker Phillips will replace him and, yes, that really is his name.  Brooks made Kentucky very competitive and will be missed not only in Lexington, but in the college football realm at large.

New-look Cotton Bowl was ugly, but at least it had personality | Dr. Saturday
The Doctor was in the house during the AT&T Cotton Bowl and, in this post, shares his interesting and astute observations of the game.   Accurately described as a "enjoyably harrowing affair," the win over Oklahoma State was essentially three-and-a-half hours of something which would have appropriately benefited from an endless loop of the Benny Hill theme song being blasted over the PA system--except for whenever Dexter McCluster had the ball.  Dexter, you don't suck on offense.

Rebs' Nutt Turns Attention to Recruiting | Clarion Ledger

That's been a myth that was out there that we start out of the state. But that's completely false. We start inside our own beautiful state of Mississippi and I'm excited about our Mississippi athletes and about the commitments we have.

As I've said before, I really don't care where they're from so long as they win football games.

Game Notes: No. 14 Rebs hosting UCF |
Maybe we'll have more coverage on this later.  Maybe we won't.  We like keeping you on our toes almost as much as we like not doing shit.
