Grove Bracket Finals: (1) Eli Manning v. (3) Michael Oher

Perhaps the Rebels two most high-profile stories of the last decade are here. First, the son of tradition, who came to Ole Miss like his daddy, and ignited the fan base into a fury, before being wildly successful at the next level, just like his brother. Privilege and tradition.

Second, the kid who came from nothing. Who escaped the deep poverty that covers the South and became a story of racial harmony and human compassion, if all mixed in with some patriarchal Deep South-i-ness.
