What a summer it will be!

As Ole Miss fans, we don't get too many summers like this one. Usually we are waiting to see if Lidney's put's us 5th or 6th in the SEC West. Rarely, we move up to 3rd.

Wow, have times changed or what? Top 10 in many preseason-preseason polls. Talk of SEC West champs and a re-match with Florida. It will finally be a pleasure (I think) to pick up the prediction magazines. I've even subscribed to ESPN the magazine in anticipation of all the positive articles that will be written.

Ok, so if you are just now starting to look for the stories, here is a little of what you've missed out on so far:

Mascot, nevermind

I just looked on the Rebel Shop's website and found tons of Col Reb stuff.  I guess this is just one of many. 

New mascot

Has Ole Miss finally decided to release a new mascot? This may be a stretch but I received an email from the official Rebel shop. The email was marketing the new Rebel Schedule Tee. On the Tee it has a Rebel Mascot and the mascots of the 12 universities that we play this year. This, if I am not mistaken, is the first time that Ole Miss has used a mascot since Col Reb.

Here is a picture of tee:

Any thoughts?

A note from the past

Recently I started scanning in old pictures and mementos to upload in a safe and secure place on the internet. You know, in case anything happens to the real ones.

I came across a letter from 1984 from an Ole Miss administrative person. I was 11 in 1984. As an assignment for a class I had to write a letter. I don't remember why. I decided to write to Ole Miss. I don't have the letter I wrote but I remember saying something to the effect that "I was so upset when we lost the game that I wanted to cry but instead I hit my sister." This letter was the response from Ole Miss.

I should look this guy up to see what he is doing now.
