Three from SEC on Groza watch list | SEC Blog - ESPN
Do the Rebs have another Groza winner in the program? Junior Bryson Rose is on the Groza watch list along with Arkansas' Zach Hocker and Georgia's Blair Walsh. If I were a bettin' man, and I'm not, and I'm especially not with regards to the Lou Groza Award, I'd place my bets on Walsh.

Tobias Singleton enrolled at Ole Miss | SEC Blog - ESPN
So Tobias is in school, but not on the team. The NCAA has not yet cleared his ACT score, due mostly to it jumping eight points between tests taken which, naturally, does raise some suspicion. It's been flagged and will be reviewed by the NCAA before Singleton is given the go-ahead to practice with the team. He can participate in voluntary workouts, however, and has been doing so over the past couple of weeks.

The Rebel sell: Ole Miss focuses on fans with marketing, communications | The Commercial Appeal
Well well well, it looks like Sleazey Kyle Veazey can't get enough of Ole Miss even at his new Commercial Appeal gig. Veaze takes a look at Michael Thompson, the work he has done so far, and explores how, frustratingly, Thompson is working without precedent.

Quiet Leader Bolden ready to take charge as senior | The Clarion-Ledger
It's hard to believe that Brandon Bolden is actually a senior. Y'all remember his freshman season, where he was rumbling into the endzone while knocking the tar out of a few Texas Tech defenders, don't you? Well that guy's a senior now on a team which is hungry for experienced leadership.

Thees has tall task at Ole Miss |
New Rebel softball coach Windy [sic] Thees is, all things considered, a great hire. She's young and enthusiastic. She has experience building an NCAA tournament-eligible program at Memphis (she was the Tigers' inaugural softball coach). And she has won more games than she has lost as a coach. I'm not saying this is some WCWS bound program or anything now, but I do think that, with proper leadership, the Rebel program could be somewhat competitive in the SEC.
