Baseball Vols out of SEC hunt thanks to Ole Miss Rebels |
We at the Cup are thoroughly pleased with the Rebels getting a long-overdue SEC sweep over the Tennessee Volunteers this past weekend. We're especially pleased with the performance on Saturday, which saw the Rebels overcome a late two-run deficit by forcing extra innings in the bottom of the ninth off of a Sikes Orvis home run before winning on a three-run Matt Snyder walkoff shot. We've seen this team collapse under pressure several times this season, making Saturday's victory both unexpected and incredibly exciting.

The Rebs have one final series this weekend in SEC play as they travel to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt. Then it's on to Hoover.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff talks to linebacker Mike Marry about the defensive outlook for the fall.

What I do find interesting in this discussion is the focus on the gameplan of Dave Wommack, a gameplan that is largely focused on a continuing variety of formations being utilized.

The Ole Miss Rebel mens tennis team has earned the programs 19th berth in the Sweet Sixteen. They'll soon travel to Athens, Georgia to face, yet again, UCLA. I don't know how we always seem to be up against UCLA in the NCAA tennis tournaments, but whatever. Congrats to the netters and best of luck against the Bruins.
