A 72-71 win over Georgia on Saturday was probably scarier than it should have been.

But Ole Miss survived!
Now Ole Miss gets rewarded with a HUGE game Wednesday night against Tennessee. Thanks to that win over Georgia, the Rebels probably don’t have to beat Tennessee or Kentucky to make the Tournament, so Ole Miss is playing with house money. A win would probably clinch a spot for the Rebels in the Big Dance. It would also be an incredible boost of confidence as we head toward the post-season.
Ole Miss is projected as an 8 seed by CBS and ESPN. The Vols, who lost to LSU in overtime on Saturday, are a Top 10 team and projected 2 seed.
This is BIG BOY basketball, in our house. I’m hoping the Pavilion will be rocking. Getting that 20th win against Tennessee would be really special.
There has never been a more perfect time for everyone to unite behind these players.
My post from yesterday about supporting the players that kneeled during the National Anthem in protest of the Confederate protesters went viral. Many people seemed to be in agreement with me. However, judging by the comments, many people don’t. I can’t hope to change any minds on this, but I do hope that people will unite behind this basketball team.
BASEBALL: The Rebels took 2 out of 3 from Tulane over the weekend, to improve to 4-2, but I’m a little worried about the starting pitching. Ole Miss had to get it done with offense and a whole lot of relief pitching.
Hopefully when Will Ethridge recovers from the blister on his throwing hand and the young guys get a little more experience things will start to balance out.
Fortunately, hits have been easy to come by. Thomas Dillard is on fire. Through 6 games his stat line remains absurd (.522 / 4 HR / 15 RBI).
