Podcast Rebellion: Eastern Illinois preview, SEC baseball stadiums, and Kermit Davis

New, 3 comments

Ben and Nick join for our weekend preview but then we just get mad about Kermit Davis.

The No. 9 Ole Miss Rebel baseball team (12-1) entertains the Eastern Illinois Panthers (5-5) this weekend and it should be another opportunity for Mike Bianco’s club to sweep. The Rebs are pitching it extremely well and even hitting at a .300 clip going into Friday’s game. The Panthers aren’t exactly world beaters (swept by Georgia State last weekend) so Ryan Rolison and Co. should be able to stifle their bats enough to win three games before looking ahead to conference play opening up next weekend.

This week, Ben and Nick join to talk about some things they liked and disliked in the two midweek wins, as well as what they look forward to seeing in the coming weeks. We also discuss the arms race that is SEC baseball stadiums. Who has the best? Who has the newest? Who is next?

We also discuss the opening for the basketball job at Ole Miss and how much we all despise the possibility of hiring Middle Tennessee State’s Kermit Davis. We each give our reasons and a few candidates that are STILL AVAILABLE MIND YOU and why they would be a better fit.
