Rebel Roundup - December 15, 2011

Rumors are Swirling that Walker Jones Could be the Next OM Athletics Director
I Tweeted this rumor (or rather retweeted its source) and asked Rebel fans how they felt about the rumor. The responses I received were largely along these lines.

If this turns out to be true, the guy will seemingly be fighting an uphill battle to win over fan support. More on this as the AD search develops.

Rebels Defeat Ragin' Cajuns For Sixth Straight Win |
It was sloppy and haphazard, but it was a win. Couscous was on last night from beyond the arc, scoring a season high 21 points. The Rebels won their sixth game in a row in front of a thin, unenthused crowd. We're only a couple of weeks away from SEC play, though, meaning that the Tad Pad should be a pretty exciting place to watch basketball games - all things considered - if the Rebels can handle the rest of their OOC slate.

Rebels on a roll | The Clarion-Ledger
Of note regarding last night's game was Jelan Kendrick's absence. The McDonald's All-American guard sat out what could have been his debut appearance as a Rebel due to a "coach's decision." What that means, we don't know, but I can guarantee we don't like it all that much. Get it together, Jelan. We're counting on you, sorta.

Eagles eager to take court vs. Ole Miss | Hattiesburg American
Next up is Southern Miss in Hattiesburg. Larry Eustachy [INSERT WILDLY INAPPROPRIATE DRINKING JOKES] is doing some good work for the Golden Eagles program, so this game won't exactly be all that easy.

The Iceman Cometh: Ole Miss and the End of the Houston Nutt Era | Team Speed Kills
Statistically, there might not have been a worse SEC team in the past ten years than our squad this past fall. Team Speed Kills reminds us of that, which is nice, because I'm sure many of us were too buzzed on brown liquor and our own rage to actually keep up with the numbers.
