Vandy’s ticket woes should be cautionary tale for OM fans

Sports columnist Steven Godfrey takes a look at Vanderbilt football ticket sales and fan support and issues a warning to Ole Miss fans that they’d better take notice so that something like that doesn’t happen to them. (August 23, 2013, Page 6A)

Predicting the SEC schedule, for embarrassment’s sake

COLUMN: No one is ever really right when delivering preseason predictions. Yet I find myself salivating annually for the arrival of Phil Steele’s guide, which is nothing more than really educated guesses. (more…) (August 9, 2013, Page 7A)

In the season of hope, here’s five realities of Ole Miss football

COLUMN: August nears, and optimism reigns. College football is never more popular in the drowsiest of the summer months, if only because fans starved for the game begin hoping and explaining away potential problems about their team with a litany of best case scenarios.

 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.
