Rebel Roundup - July 22, 2013

Start your week off right with some Ole Miss Rebel news and notes.


Freeze Washing Cars At ESPN
He's not literally washing cars, but he probably would if asked nicely (except for Colin Cowherd, because he's loud and cocksure, and such attributes do not win the day). He is, instead, making a few appearances on ESPN and ESPN Radio throughout the day, so click through that link for a schedule of today's fun.

Ole Miss announces record year for donations | The Clarion-Ledger
Ole Miss received a new record for cash donations this fiscal year. To my surprise, that number is only $26M. Still, it's good news, as is the new record membership total of the Ole MIss Athletic Foundation at 7,412. If this program can show steady improvement this season, and Andy Kennedy can somehow get this team back to March (or even if not, because football is just that powerful), then I'd expect both of these records to be broken next fiscal year.

Ole Miss vs. Vanderbilt trash talk now underway |
Maybe August should be Vandy HATE MONTH with the way this is bound to progress.

3-star Dallas Skyline DE Victor Evans commits to Ole Miss over Texas | College Sports Blog
A former teammate of Devante Kincade's and a three star prospect out of Dallas Skyline, Victor Evans committed to the Ole Miss Rebels this past weekend. Listed at 6'2" and 230 pounds, Evans had offers from Texas, Kansas State, Michigan State and others. While he plays defensive end for Skyline, it's likely that he projects as a linebacker at the next level. In addition, his commitment made petulant Longhorn 'crootin analysts whine on Twitter, adding a certain entertainment factor to this bit of Rebel news..

Ole Miss Tries to Keep Climbing | SEC 2013 - Team Speed Kills
Team Speed Kills will be looking at Ole Miss this week, and kick off their coverage by answering the question of what should be expected, generally speaking, out of Ole Miss in year two of the Hugh Freeze administration. While going from 2-10 to 7-6 in just one year is pretty impressive, improving to 8 or 9 wins in year two could arguably be even more impressive given this team's schedule and depth issues. Simply put, a return to a bowl, any bowl, spells good things for this program moving forward.
