    As long as the Rebels play a decent game and keep pressure on Releford, this should be a good win. It’ll still be a long shot to make the tourney. We should never have lost to Mercer or State.

      Panic, the tourney won’t be such a long shot if they win twice this week. The opportunity is still out in front. The games get bigger as long as you win and add meaning to your season. Alabama and Georgia will not be easy places to play, but if Ole Miss could get two this week and split with Florida and Kentucky that would be a pretty big statement.
