Ole Miss may be for real this time

It’s too early to start dreaming big, but I can’t help it. Not after Ole Miss led No. 11 Auburn from wire to wire and won 82-67 in front of a fairly raucous Pavilion crowd.

The 3’s were falling, dunks were dropping and the crowd was screaming.

Craddock Court was lit.

Kermit Davis and the Rebels are 12-2 (2-0 SEC) and riding a 9-game winning streak.

A win over Auburn says this might be real.

It might actually be real, and it’s hard not to get excited.

We’ve seen the Ole Miss bubble pop so many times over the years that it’s hard to let yourself buy in, but what happened on Wednesday night is undeniable.

Terence Davis was the Terence Davis we hoped he’d be last year. Electric.

Breein Tyree didn’t have to do much in this game, but he’s already established his ability to dominate (see his 31 points at Vanderbilt).

This team may win us a lot of ball games. If Ole Miss wins in Starkville on Saturday my head may explode.
