It wasn’t pretty, but coming off of a difficult loss to No. 1 Florida on Friday, the Ole Miss volleyball team will take its 3-1 (25-21 25-16, 20-25, 25-23) victory over South Carolina from Sunday.
Following the match, Ole Miss coach Joe Getzin admitted he was a bit worried about the Lady Rebels coming out flat against South Carolina. (November 1, 2010, Page 4B)
Starting the season fast hasn’t been a problem for Steve Spurrier while he’s been at South Carolina. The Gamecocks have been one of the Southeastern Conference’s best teams in the months of September and October during his five-year tenure, but when the season hits the last month of the season, the Gamecocks have routinely fallen on hard times.

Ten offensive starters returning from last year, plus the installation of a new defensive scheme, have helped turn the Georgia Bulldogs around in the view of many prognosticators eyes heading into the 2010 season.
Georgia, under the direction of Mark Richt, always seems to have lofty preseason expectations placed on them. But after having a sub par 2009 in which the defense was much maligned and the offense grew stagnant in key situations, some changes had to be made by Richt.

Following No. 16 Auburn’s 11-1 victory at Oxford-University Stadium that wrapped up a three-game sweep of No. 17 Ole Miss, the normally jovial Smith looked like he — and the rest of the Rebels — had just been put through the wringer.
During Auburn’s first sweep in Oxford since the 1976 season, the Tigers outscored Ole Miss 34-8.
“Obviously we didn’t swing it well and it can’t get much worse than what you saw this weekend,” said Smith, whose Rebels have scored a total of 24 runs in their last three conference series. “I don’t think you can put your finger on one thing in particular. We just didn’t hit, that’s the bottom line.” (May 24, 2010, Page 1B)
