Ole Miss Coasts Past Ailing Missouri | USAToday.com
The Rebel men's team picked up their biggest win of the season thus far on Saturday night by defeating the then #10 Missouri Tigers by double-digits.

Ole Miss women's basketball falls to Alabama | Hattiesburg American
The women's team, though, has not fared so well in SEC play. One cannot help but wonder how the unceremonious firing of first year head coach Adrian Wiggins just weeks before the beginning of the season is impacting this season, but only for something a minute or two before thinking of something else because, c'mon, he probably deserved it and most of you forgot that even happened anyway.

From FotC Godfrey comes a look at the future of the college football bowl season. Important to note is that, once the BCS system ends next year, so too will the agreements between conference and their partner bowls. This means that, things which are all screwed up (like Vanderbilt playing in the Music City Bowl) can hopefully be improved upon.

Proud of you, Courtney. My only question is do they make you wear that dress and tiara everywhere you go, because that looks mighty tedious.
