  • “Ole Miss is 4-0 in SEC play for the first time since 1936-37 when it started 5-0.” I would guess that was when they had outdoor courts to play on and used the wind-age factor to launch those shots. The Ole Rebel Boys were good in those days. THey should make it 5-0 tonight, but Kentucky Cats are on the prowl once again. so the SEC race will tighten up.
