Rebel Roundup and SEC Power Poll Ballot - An Exercise in Efficiency

Miami Hurricanes' Frank Haith preaches virtue of sharing |
The Rebels face the Hurricanes of Miami tonight in Coral Gables, Florida. This is a big out of conference game for the Rebels who, when looking at the schedule, may need a significant RPI boost come tourney time. Head coach of the 'Canes, Frank Haith, worries that his players aren't distributing the ball well, noting poor assist-to-turnover numbers. Hopefully this is something the Rebels can take advantage of on the road against an ACC squad. More on this to come from One Man later.

Jeremiah Masoli — Was it worth it? | Veazey
Kyle Veazey asks the question, to which I reply "yes, it was." Masoli was quite worth it. It's not as if Nathan Stanley was going to win any more games than Masoli did and Masoli's arm and mobility kept us in a lot of games (namely Arkansas and LSU) that, were Stanley at the helm, we'd probably not have had a fighters chance in. Sure, we still lost them, and that sucks, but you've gotta give the coaches credit for taking a gamble to put their team in a better position to succeed.

And of course Nutt has no regrets. Even if he did, though, he's not gonna say so in public.

Penn State Blows A Gaskins, Falls 84-71 To Ole Miss | Black Shoe Diaries
Below is Juco's take on Friday's Rebel victory over the Nittany Lions. Read that, then read this, which is the take of Black Shoe Diaries, SBNation's Penn State blog.


Aaaand jump on it for the depressing 1-12 of the SEC as it stands now:

  1. Auburn
  2. Arkansas
  3. LSU
  4. South Carolina
  5. Alabama
  6. Mississippi State
  7. Florida
  8. Georgia
  9. Tennessee
  10. Kentucky
  11. Vanderbilt
  12. Ole Miss

I know Vandy only won two games, but one was against our fucking terrible football team (I'm still a bit off because of that game, let alone the Tennessee, State, and Jacksonville State games) so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Shit, is there anything more typical than Ole Miss being the only SEC school Robbie Caldwell will have ever defeated in his coaching career?

And, for those who love/hate when people apply the transitive property to football, give this a look-see:

Ole Miss beat Kentucky, who beat South Carolina, who beat Alabama, who beat Arkansas, who beat LSU, who beat State, who beat Florida, who beat Georgia, who beat Tennessee, who beat Vanderbilt, who, to bring it all around, beat Ole Miss.

That's wild, if you ask me.
