Ole Miss basketball capped off the 2016-2017 season with an impressive win over a pretty salty 22-win South Carolina team on senior night. But, instead of praising another great win at home with only six players, fans are up in arms about Andy Kennedy not being good enough.

Well, not only has he guided the Rebs to new heights with fantastic new facilities and an impressive 2017 signing class now that he’s finally in The Pav Tav, he’s also amassed 12 winnings seasons in his time in Oxford that is one more than all the winnings seasons from the 1950’s to the 2000’s.

On this week’s episode, we try and figure out why in the hell everyone is so unhappy with a coach who has made Ole Miss basketball relevant and a legitimate contender in the Southeastern Conference year in and year out. Despite dealing with two transfers underwhelming, a newcomer missing the entire year to injury and playing multiple newcomers in key spots, AK led the Rebs to 19 wins

First, however, we talk about the fact that Ole Miss baseball’s promising 7-0 start ran off the tracks during an 0-4 showing that included a winless trip to the Shriners College Classic. The Rebels couldn’t get the bats going in Houston, costing them opportunities for high quality wins over Baylor, Texas Tech and TCU. We discuss why we think the Diamond Rebs will bounce back this week and what they’ll look like when they start conference play in a couple of weeks.
