Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning …

My feature on Ole Miss pole vaulter Sam Kendricks appeared over the weekend. Kendricks has the worlds’ best pole vault jump to date. He’s hoping to make 19 feet “the new normal.” Kendricks and the Rebels will compete in the SEC championships this Friday-Sunday at Missouri. …

Part of Ole Miss’ undoing in a 5-4 loss at Auburn Sunday — A Game 3 loss that clinched the series for previously struggling Auburn — was the Tigers’ outfield defense by Hunter Kelley. Here’s video of the catches by Brandon Marcello of AL.com. Auburn won a pair from Ole Miss at Swayze last year, clinching the Sunday game in part with a home run-saving catch by left fielder Cullen Wacker.

Here’s what the West looks like as MSU visits Ole Miss this week: LSU 19-5, Arkansas 15-8, MSU 14-11, Ole Miss 12-12, Alabama 11-12, Texas A&M 10-13, Auburn 9-15.

No mid-week games for Ole Miss this week.

    Rebels appear as for now to make the SEC baseball tournament, but seeding will be very important, and seeding team lower than number will have their work cut out for them. My guess is that Vandy will be No. 1 seed, LSU #2, Arkansas #3 and South Carolina # 4. If my thinking is correct,and it is seldom this ole farm boy’s think is about like fresh cow manure,runny and stinky. So it looks as the 5 thru 12 seed teams with a first round lose the four losing teams goes home. the winning four teams survive to fight another day. Then they get into a double elimination round of play. Miss State could very well be the surprise team in this tournament. State is very strong in pitching and hitting So,my pick is the Dawgs of Starkville as SEC tournament champs and on to NCAA regional play some where, It could be down here in Florida. FSU could possible be host to a regional.
