In March of 2012, The Commercial Appeal misspelled the name of Rebels basketball coach Andy Kennedy in an article headlined "Ole Miss' Randy Kennedy says he has not talked with UAB." We dropped it into a link dump and our commentariat, led by longtime Cup contributor TwoYardsandaCloudofEnricky, ran with the joke.
Randy quickly became the follicley superior alter ego that we always wanted as a coach. He has a luscious head of hair and a dashing 'stache. He took Ole Miss to multiple Final Fours. He's a PhD and an award-winning author. A humanitarian who built hospitals in Guatemala.
TwoYards even made Photoshops of the guy.
But at long last, Randy has finally come to life.
Because y'all, ANDY KENNEDY DRESSED UP AS RANDY AND MADE A VIDEO THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

Sure, Ole Miss kind of screwed up some major details with Randy. They turned one of the greatest men of our generation into a rec-league-coaching, lives-in-his-mom's-basement buffoon. But that's ok because ANDY DRESSED UP AS FUCKING RANDY KENNEDY.
Does this mean they're renaming the new arena the Randy Kennedy Memorial Gymnasium?
