Friday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Friday morning …

If Ole Miss manages to upset No. 2 Florida Saturday at Tad Smith Coliseum it’s likely that visiting media will seek out a response from Gators center Patric Young who offered unprompted evaluation of Boston College after its upset of Syracuse that could pave the way for Florida to move up the one final spot in the next rankings.  Check this out. …

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier chimes in on the tempo offense debate and what he calls the proposed “Saban Rule.” He also doesn’t think it will pass. However, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, who wants to slow things down, isn’t so sure.

Speaking of tempo, it was very slow getting out of a couple of Ole Miss home games in 2013. Credit the administration for making changes and improvement on the fly. There was improvement. Like Houston Nutt used to say, “They remember November,” and traffic was better then. The school rolled out parking pass purchase information on Thursday. …

Brett Favre told USA Today that when he watched Johnny Manziel this season, which wasn’t much he admits, he thought he was looking at a young Brett Favre. …

    “Kendarius Webster, on Twitter, talks like a man who’s ready to move ahead with things:”

    Who can blame him. In an annual Princeton Review survey, Ole Miss was named the most-beautiful campus in the country and checked in as the No. 14 party school for 2013.
    The survey asked 126,000 students at 378 colleges 80 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body, and themselves.
