Rosters unveiled for 83rd All-Star Game | News
Former Rebel Ace Lance Lynn will represent the National League and his St. Louis Cardinals at this year's Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Kansas City.

Big Day For Rebels At U.S. Olympic Trials |
Current Ole Miss Rebel Isiah Young will represent the United States at the London games in the men's 200 meter sprint, and reigning world women's long jump champion Brittney Reese, an Ole Miss alumna who is a shoo-in for the gold in her event, officially locked in her spot on the Olympic team. Congrats to Isiah and Brittney on earning the unique honor and privilege of representing your country at the Olympic games. [Also, it was really cool to see Isiah wearing his Ole Miss gear on national television after he qualified.]

SEC media days lineup unveiled | SEC Blog - ESPN
Soon, SEC media days will be upon us. Unfortunately, the Cup will not have an operative on the ground in Birmingham a la last year (we're not professionals at this, and our real professions make these sorts of things difficult).

It is unusual for a sophomore to attend SEC media days, but Moncrief is easily the best offensive weapon this team has, so why not?

Ole Miss AD Bjork advises future coaches in NCAA forum | The Clarion-Ledger
Every Rebel's favorite Icelandic pop sensation was a part of an NCAA coaches forum designed for the young, up-and-coming coaches college sports. The event is called the Champions Forum, and is an NCAA-led forum for minority coaches looking for head coaching jobs. Bjork was one of eight athletics directors invited to participate in the event. Basically, I consider this a scouting trip for the AD. Good work, Ross.
