Wednesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

An interesting read here from an Atlanta Journal-Constitution blog the response of Georgia fans through email to Hugh Freeze’s request to “bring it on” if you know of recruiting improprieties within his program. …

Texas A&M visits Ole Miss tonight at 8 on CSS television. AD Eric Hyman says the Aggies are committed to competing in the SEC, though in speaking at a local meeting in Bryan-College Station he was speaking more about football than basketball. Fans will share in that sacrifice with the increased cost of football season tickets that will help pay for – among other things – the increased salaries of coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff. Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork, Freeze and other athletics officials will meet the public in April on the Rebel Road Trip. …

Last night in SEC basketball Tennessee won its sixth straight game, knocking off No. 8 Florida, the SEC leader, 64-58 in Knoxville. The win helps the Ole Miss RPI, as the Rebels have two wins over Tennessee, but it’s really just about the wins for Ole Miss right now and whether the Rebels can get enough of those. The RPI is what it is, and there aren’t any huge RPI opportunities left in the regular season. The Ole Miss RPI is 57 going into tonight’s game. …

More on the Ole Miss baseball team’s first loss of the season, a 4-3 decision against Memphis in which the Rebels committed six errors including a bad throw that led to the winning run. Three of Memphis’ four runs were unearned. This from WREG.

In SEC football, Bleacher Report columnist Barrett Sallee likes Auburn as the league’s non-bowling team in 2012 that is most likely to get to a bowl in 2013. …

Finally, former LSU star Tyann Mathieu, working for an NFL shot, tells his hometown paper he’d like to drop the Honey Badger nickname. …

    Professional recruiting has become accepted in today’s college sports. Openly cheating and walking in the gray areas is common…(see Manziel’s online course study). All for the sake of coming in 2nd place to Alabama every season, (except for the year, two thousand and CAM, the year of Auby. Alabama is the only school that gets a #1 finish out of their #1 recruiting classes, time and time again. It’s simple, Nick Saban is the #1 coach in college football. Hugh Freeze is no Nick Saban. Hugh Freeze is a one hit wonder and won’t win more that 7 games in 2013 and darn sure won’t win the EGG BOWL.
