    Perhaps this could be the season for Rebel basketball and coach Kennedy. I was never much of a basketball fan, even tho it got me over to Northwest Miss Jr. College as a try out. My interest was elsewhere. Ole Miss in that day was Cob Jarvis and gang. I do remember seeing some well know basket players come to Oxford from LSU Tenn, Ga, Fla,…. Kentucky never…. Rebel football was king at Ole Miss in those days, but now I do believe that Coach Freeze is bring football back to fame, or at least I hope so.
