'Save the rivalry for football' | The Clarion-Ledger
The picture above, that happened yesterday. The Viking Classic, the annual PGA Event held at Annandale Country Club in Madison (it was the Southern Farm Bureau Classic when I was growing up a few miles from the club), held it's fun little Pro-Am deal to raise money for the Blair E. Batson Childrens Hospital at the Univeristy Medical Center in Jackson. For laughs and awkward photo opportunities, they grouped Chancellor Dan Jones with Dan Mullen, Emeril Lagasse (an Ole Miss fan, believe it or not), and Steve Elkington in this event.

In 'crootin news, a 6'3", 250-pound defensive tweener out of Miami (uh oh) committed to the Rebels this week.

I imagine that, if Bennett were to receive an Ole Miss offer, that commitment would likely change.
