An attempt at a new feature around here, and, like all new feature ideas around here, it will most likely die a forgotten death. Or one of neglect. Whichever comes first. Anyway, the title pretty much explains what's going on here, and it is my hope that I do these for all teams. However, this is just a one-man operation, so there is no accountability or guarantee I will make time to do them. That means you'll get them when I remember to do it and YOU'LL LIKE IT.
Much like the boring, uninspiring Oldsmobile Intrigue (RIP 2002), the Ole Miss season wasn't expected to deliver much performance. However, it did provide a semi-reliable way to get from point A to point B of the college football season, a solid six, possibly seven-win sedan.
"What's that you say? Heisman Trophy candidate Jeremiah Masoli is coming to Oxford to play football? Why, yes, that is reason to run outside and celebrate!"
"The NCAA did what? TO THE STREETS WE TAKE!!!"
And in an unprecedented move, the NCAA was kept from beating Ole Miss like the broken down mule that it is. If only we had paid attention to Red in Shawshank when he said, "Hope is a dangerous thing."
And then the games started. What's that? Why, yes, we do wear tuxedos and evening gowns to games at Ole Miss.
