It’s an Ole Miss March Madness Day

For the first time since 2002, the Rebels are in the Dance.

From the mother ship:

Kennedy and the Dance: Andy Kennedy has worked to place attention on his players and not himself, but the Ole Miss coach has worked hard to get the Rebels to this point.

Marshall Henderson: All eyes on Henderson at NCAA press day.

Nick Williams: Senior guard is no stranger to Wisconsin.

Clash of Styles: Ole Miss and Wisconsin find success in different ways.

  • I believe in second chances, too! As Henderson’s past shows, he has had his share of second chances. I would just think that he would be a little more contrite and show that he has matured. I never cared much for the “me” players, like Allen Iverson, who Henderson reminds me so much of.

    “We got married in a fever…HOTTER than a pepper sprout. We been talking ’bout Jackson, ever since the FIRE went out!”… The king of second chances

      Another day of eating crow for the character who has dedicated his life to tearing down Ole Miss. They made an a$$ out you at the SEC Tournament…and the saga continues!

      You would not maturity if it slapped you in the face. Sorta like Sydney did one of his teammates in Hawaii. That was really mature.
