The offseason is over. The speculation, analysis, guessing, and reasons for worrying end the second the ball is kicked off tonight in the Georgia Dome. The No. 18 Ole Miss Rebels take on the Boise State Broncos to begin both programs' seasons in a nationally televised contest that will serve as a de facto national kickoff for much of the ESPN watching populace.
Y'all know the storyline by now. Ole Miss is looking to break to the next level as a football program. An experienced quarterback and a group of extremely talented sophomores highlight an SEC program that's a consensus top-20 team per the football punditry. Boise State, a perennial winner which relishes it's almost perpetual underdog status, is breaking in a new coaching staff and looking to recover from an uncharacteristic five-loss season. We are the power conference member, they are the trend bucking little guy, and we both have something to prove.
So let's prove it. Hotty Toddy. Your open thread begins now.
