So this weekend’s match up with Alabama is the Ole Miss Rebels. Do I think Alabama will win? Absolutely. Are we ready to hear that raunchy Hotty Toddy chant over and over again? Well, probably not. One would think that Ole Miss being a Southern school and all, they would have a little class, but that doesn’t seem to be the consensus around here. Since they will not have the home field advantage down at ‘The Grove’, hopefully the fans can control themselves.
I do think it will be an interesting matchup however. Both teams are in the SEC and as you guys already know I love some SEC action! The Rebels won’t be a complete wash; they have played fairly well this year. That is until they lost their starting Quarterback, Bo Wallace, to an injury in the Texas game. Losing him cost them the Texas game and this is chance for them to redeem themselves. Even if Bo is still out on injury, Junior Quarterback Barry Brunetti ain’t half bad either. So I do believe the Ole Miss Rebels have a chance to give the Tide boys a run for their money. The Rebel offense is good when it’s hitting on all cylinders and its defense is doing quite well also. This could be a true challenge for the Tide.
Do I think for one second that those tacky Mississippi chants will rattle A.J. McCarron or Barrett Jones? No. Do I think the Ole Miss offense stands a chance against the pure strength of C.J. Mosley, Dee Milliner, Robert Lester and Ed Stinson? No. Do I think the Ole Miss Defense can handle the speed of Eddie Lacy, Dee Hart, T.J. Yeldon, Kevin Norwood AND Christion Jones? Nope, not likely.
Alabama just has too much power for the Ole Miss Rebels, but I am definitely looking forward to see how the guys react to a team that has some decent players to work with.
Check back on Sunday for a recap of the game! The good, the bad, and the ugly! Because trust me, it’s gonna get ugly!
