Rebel Roundup - December 9, 2013

We have so much to cover in so little time, so here are some links to get your day started. Expect in depth coverage on all of these things in the coming days (except for the Greg Hardy thing, because the oddity there is self-evident).

Oregon Ducks vs. Ole Miss Rebels Recap |
Marshall Henderson scored 39 points. 30 of those points came off of three-point attempts. That's a school record, which is neat. Even though the Rebels lost, they did take a top-15 team into overtime at the Tad Pad. Coming off of a disappointing loss against Kansas State, I'm sure the loss to the Ducks does little to enhance fan enthusiasm, but I remain convinced (heck, I'm even more convinced now) that this team can be competitive in SEC play.

Fahn Cooper Commits to Ole Miss | Yahoo! Sports
The 6'5", 315 pound offensive tackle out of College of DuPage in Illinois had offers from Oklahoma, Texas Tech, and others. He has two to play two, and could start immediately at right tackle for the Rebs.

Year 2 of Freeze era provides better result for Ole Miss | The Clarion-Ledger
Coulda woulda shouldas aside, the Rebs did finish the regular season with a 7-5 record, a one game improvement from last year's 6-6. As upset as many of us are with the way the season concluded - and rightfully so - it is tough to argue against the idea that this program is trending in the right direction under Hugh Freeze's leadership.

Greg Hardy Is "Kraken," And He Went To Hogwarts | Deadspin
Greg Hardy is still xxgr3gxx to us, and he just demonstrated his oddball, emo way of life to the rest of the football watching world last night. The former Rebel called himself "Kraken," the mystical beast of the ocean featured in Pirates of the Caribbean, and claimed "Hogwarts" as his alma mater. Ole Miss isn't Hogwarts, Greg, but we don't fault you for being a dreamer.
