I have the privilege of doing this afternoon edition of the Rebel Round Up. Forgive me if it's heavily laiden with baseball stuff.

Kendall Rogers over at Rivals.com previews the top ten series to watch in college baseball this weekend. Obviously, our series with Florida is one of them. Among the top ten are South Carolina @ Auburn, Alabama @ Arkansas, Kentucky @ Vanderbilt. If you love college baseball, you'll appreciate knowing a little bit more about the important series.

This story by cocknfire of Team Speed Kills makes a great argument against both of the men and provides a historical perspective to back them up.
