Fellow Rebel fans a new season is upon us. It is like Christmas morning. What gifts will this season hold? Will we get a shiny new red wagon or a bag of switches. Only time will tell. We've already received two fabulous gifts. What's next?
Get ready to open the Jacksonville St. present.

(1) How will Masoli contribute?- This is not a discussion I dreamed I would be having a few months ago. With his experience and talent, I would say a great deal. Let's hope he sticks to the straight and narrow.
(2) Top 10 recruiting class- Who said Nutt can't recruit. Let's see how we finish in Feb.
(3) How will we finish? This might depend on how we start. If we are to finish with a decent record we have to have a good September.
(4) What will our new mascot be? Lions, tigers and bears... oh my.. well we know it won't be a tiger. Those are a dime a dozen. Not sure a hotty and a toddy will work either..

The Rebels started out sluggish again tonight but rolled to a comfortable 53-7 win. After an odd start to 2009, the Rebels real season begins on Thursday against South Carolina. This will be a true test of where we are.
South Carolina used several turnovers in 2008 to barely defeat the Rebels. The SI jinx. Many would argue this should be a revenge game for Ole Miss. I think Nutt should sell it that way.
I am a bit uneasy about the game Thursday night. First I have no feel for this team. After the first two games, both huge blowouts, I can't say if I think we look better than the end of last year. The Rebels seemed lackluster in both wins. Was it the flu? The week off in the early season? Who knows. Second, it's an SEC game. Anything can happen when two SEC teams meet. Third, South Carolina will be pumped to play a top 5 team. Finally, South Carolina always packs their stadium and it can get loud.

The long open week is finally over. The prize for the wait? Ole Miss #5(AP), #6 (USA). I wasn't happy with the schedule this year but I have to say that we lucked out. With the pig flu hitting the team it is a blessing that the Rebels had this week off and are playing a 1AA team on Sat.

Ole Miss moved to number 6 in the AP poll and number 8 in the coaches poll after the 45-14 victory over Memphis. The Rebels continue to be in uncharted territory for my lifetime. This is the highest the Rebels have been ranked in my 36 years.
