Sports Columns

Rebels won’t headline Media Days, and that’s a good thing

COLUMN: This column, an advance commentary on SEC Media Days, is ostensibly a preview of an event created to preview a sporting season. That’s the level of absurdity at which we’re operating at in college football. If you’re fine with this, I suppose I am, too. (more…) (July 9, 2013, Page 7)

    Millinghaus’ shot, Nkemdiche’s draw are top moments of Ole Miss’ sports calendar

     COLUMN: There’s an unofficial theory out there that if a major university’s football team is doing well, all tickets sales for every other sport increase.

    I won’t waste time debunking that (I don’t think folks in Chapel Hill or Lexington would agree), but outside of Big Blue Nation, that’s probably an acceptable rule of thumb in the SEC — at least in terms of morale. (more…) (June 19, 2013, Page 6)

      Like the warm and fuzzies? Get involved

      COLUMN: Remember basketball? Oh now, sure you do – it’s that indoor sport you can’t tailgate for, before or during, that Ole Miss fans treat with the horrible paradox of indifference in the way of actual support and fierce, aggressive criticism. (more…) (May 14, 2013, Page 8)

        WVHS filled with success stories despite defeat

        COLUMN: INDEPENDENCE — Final games are almost always emotional for someone.

        Typically, when a team is eliminated and its season is put on ice the seniors hug and give emotional, tear-jerking speeches to those who will follow in their footsteps. (more…) (May 7, 2013, Page 9)

          Why an ACC proposal helps OM tremendously

          COLUMN: The Ole Miss community gets its fair share of participation in most of the national conversations surrounding college athletics, but none of the years-long tumult involving conference realignment has been much in the way of concerning to the Rebels. (more…) (May 2, 2013, Page 9)

            Jerseys don’t win football games, so calm down

            COLUMN: I really should’ve audited some sort of fashion merchandising classes when I was enrolled at Ole Miss. I also should’ve attended some of the classes I was actually enrolled in, but alas. (more…) (April 24, 2013, Page 8)

                Want more March Madness? Be prepared to work for it

                COLUMN: If you’re still angry or upset about Ole Miss’ last possession loss to La Salle in the NCAA Tournament, that’s OK. It wasn’t the easiest way to end things, to end a previously unthinkable run back to March Madness.  (more…) (March 27, 2013, Page 8)

                  Kennedy proves critics wrong with title win

                  COLUMN: NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Consider Andy Kennedy’s existence justified.

                  In the stroke of three wild days in Nashville, the embattled Ole Miss basketball coach not only ended speculation that he’d be fired the same season he became the program’s winningest head coach, but that his style of coaching and development couldn’t get the Rebels to the NCAA Tournament.

                    Even after everything, Ole Miss has hope in Nashville at SEC tourney

                    COLUMN: NASHVILLE — It stands to feature an overwhelming amount of bad basketball, but the 2013 Southeastern Conference Tournament bracket reads like a history book of this season’s Ole Miss team, and maybe even tea leaves for its future. (more…) (March 14, 2013, Page 8)
