Ole Miss Powder Blues

Since Ole Miss's basketball team got off to a record-breaking start, it's hard not to lose some hope with a couple of losses and a couple of key injuries.  However, I think Ole Miss is looking good.  The Rebels have 17 wins with ten games left to play plus the SEC Tournament.  Although 20 used to be the number to get in, a 23-win Rebel team would be hard to exclude.

Side note: it would be interesting to complete this sentence, "No team with ____ wins prior to the NCAA Tournament has ever been excluded."

  • We're 17-4.
  • We lost to Kentucky in what they say was their best game of the year.
  • We lost to Florida in what they say was their toughest test yet.

Yeah, those are excuses, but, when your goal is an invite to a tournament, the perspective they provide is valuable.

Our next ten games are:

South Carolina

Then the SEC Tournament.

We'll probably be favored in all ten of those, so this team is still at it... and Andy Kennedy is still favored to keep his job.
