COLUMN: SEC doesn’t care about its basketball? Please

    COLUMN: Beatdown shows there’s still a ways to go on Rebels’ journey

          Rebs must rediscover offense (even if they lose)

          Comparative analysis is never that trustworthy a means of evaluation in college football, let alone at the halfway mark of a season. Most hardcore stat nerds would tell you how little they actually look at head-to-head wins and losses as means of prognosticating an upcoming game. (October 10, 2013, Page 9)

            Forget ‘Bama: AU is the real must-win for Rebs

            Tyler Siskey is not the reason Ole Miss was shut out in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last week. That’s thanks in part to a disparity of athletes that, while smaller than in years past, is still enough of a gulf to make this annual game somewhat of an inevitability. (October 4, 2013, Page 7A)

              Expect a close game, not a win, Saturday

                  At long last, football season arrives
