Ole Miss Rebel news and notes is trying to not think about Ole Miss baseball.

Ole Miss At Home Again
Yesterday sucked, but not too bad for me at least. While the Rebels were losing to the William and Mary Tribe to get the boot from the Raleigh Regional, I was watching this:

U-S-A! U-S-A!

So, yeah, that was a great way to spend an afternoon. I was actually able to cheer on a team of mine as they bettered a powerhouse against the odds. It was a great and sadly unfamiliar feeling for this Ole Miss and US Soccer fan.

As the match's halftime began, the Yanks were up 2-0 on the Germans, and I was - being in RFK Stadium, a structure which should have been razed decades ago - without reliable enough 3G to follow the Rebel baseball game on Twitter. I, obviously, didn't care too much at that point, but Juco just had to call me and deliver the bad news anyway. My reaction was something along these lines, but those feelings were fleeting because, hey, that's just one less thing to worry about over the next few weeks.

There is though the question and ensuing debate about Mike Bianco's future in Oxford to deal with. I'm sure we'll be having that talk soon, so stick around.

Aside from a few glaring mistakes - such as Hugh Freeze's loss totals and Bo Wallace's interception total - this is a good writeup on what to look for out of our passing game next year.

You know what, scratch that last bit, because it really isnt' a good writeup, but the point is that people are starting to notice that we return a capable quarterback, a maturing offensive line, and a trio of good starting SEC wideouts while adding to that a fistful of weapons out of the 2013 recruiting class.

Ole Miss Rebels Lead for 4-Star DT | RantSports.com
Elisha Shaw is one of the top defensive tackles in the country, and the Tucker, Georgia standout lineman named Ole Miss his leader after a recent visit to Oxford. I don't know where this strategy of "poach Georgia for defensive linemen" came from, but I like it and it seems to work. Hopefully his interest in our Rebs can be held onto.

SEC Announces Update On Concussions | OleMissSports.com
Dan Jones and his whole "being an actual physician" thing gave him the opportunity to chair the SEC's working group on concussions, a team which will undoubtedly take away our traditions or whatever tasked with promoting the health and safety of the SEC's student athletes, particularly with regards to the rising issue of brain injuries in football. Interestingly enough, the photo OleMissSports.com decided to use for this story is one of Randall Mackey offering to douse Dr. Jones' head with Gatorade.
