SEC Bloggers rank Basketball Rebs 2nd in the SEC | Garnet and Black Attack
Yes, we did have a vote; however, we put the Rebels third. I guess we're just not as optimistic as some people who aren't accustomed to the ways of the Ole Miss Rebels.

Folks, you've got a better team on the hardwood in Oxford than you do on the gridiron ... might be time to pay attention."

Oh yeah, congratulations [SEC School]!
