[quote]Second, you created a straw man argument by arguing that Houston Nutt would still be at Ole Miss had he achieved similar results as Dan Mullen has at State.

| SEC Rant|| re: 2014 will be Bo Wallace's year - MedDawg on 7/15/14 at 6:23 pm|
Bo is smart (or has good awareness) and seems to make good decisions on the fly. Freeze's offense seems to take advantage of that.
Since Bo's arm should be better, OM may open up/throw deep more or call more 'planned' pass plays. That may work against OM, especially if the OL can't protect him...

I wasn't extremely impressed by Prewitt. He did have a lot of interceptions and made a lot hard tackles in front of him, but also I noticed him getting beat in the defensive backfield either by a receiver trying to get open or by a runner with the ball putting a move on him. He's really good, but n...

Auburn played Washington State, Arkansas State, Florida Atlantic, and Western Carolina last year.
MSU at least played Oklahoma State, who won 10 games last year.
Like others have said, I'm for playing easier teams to make sure we get those extra practices. Let the top SEC teams play the tou...

Here is his methodology [link=(http://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/2014/JUNE14/DBJune20.html)]LINK[/link]
Apparently his 2014 National Championship contender list is based on 1 good and 1 decent year back-to-back sometime over the past 22 years. None of it has to do with how a team did last year.

I think it was Women's Bowling and the stat is for Men's teams. If Vandy wins the CWS, that will be their first men's team national championship.
State and OM both have individual national championships in tennis and track. Sta...

Ole Miss is in the Top 4, aren't they? Hadn't thought of it that way, given the two bracket system.
Even if they don't get past Virginia, that's still pretty cool.
