Monday Mid-Morning Update

This was supposed to appear at 6:30 this morning, but technology failed me. Still some good stuff here.

From ESPN, SEC blogger Chris Low’s take on the end of the SEC losing streak. Before the streak was broken on Saturday, The Wall Street Journal reviewed the Ole Miss football program, from its storied past, to Forward Rebels and the transition to Ross Bjork, to the future.

The Rebels’ next opponent is Arkansas on Oct. 27 in Little Rock. Both teams have an open date this week. Chris Bahn of ArkansasSports360.com grades the Razorbacks’ 49-7 storm-shortened win over Kentucky. Arkansas has beaten inferior teams the last two weeks. The Ole Miss-Arkansas game will be big for both teams as they try to reach six wins and bowl-eligibility. …

On Sunday, Dexter McCluster had six catches, but the Chiefs lost to the Bucs 38-10. Eli Manning has become the clutch performer in New York City, and he relies on his wide receivers to help him get there. Eli and the Giants had a big day yesterday against a former Manning teammate at Ole Miss, Patrick Willis and the 49ers. The Niners weren’t able to get to Manning yesterday the way they did in last year’s NFC championship game. …

From Columbia, following his team’s 23-21 loss to LSU, Steve Spurrier calls for more fire from the Gamecocks. …

From Knoxville, recovering Derek Dooley says coaching from the press box wasn’t why his Vols lost at Mississippi State. …

From Lexington, columnist John Clay wonders if the Wildcats’ big loss to Arkansas wasn’t the beginning of the end for UK coach Joker Phillips. …
