Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning …

It’s Media Monday at Ole Miss, and it should be more interesting than normal given the aftermath of the Rebels’ 23-17 win over Alabama.

Freeze and Friends begins at 12:30. John Davis and I will have Rapid Reaction on the blog after player interviews are complete.

I’ve asked that Ross Bjork come by and talk about rushing the field, goalposts, SEC fines, etc. Hopefully he can get there.

On to the links …

Video here of security at VHS taking issue with an Alabama fan throwing trash onto the field during the postgame celebration. Presumably there was some sort of interaction going on, and the toss was directed at someone or multiple someones, but the fan doesn’t rare back and throw with clear intent to harm. He just kind of soft tosses it out there. …

They’d been waiting for security to give the OK for them — and presumably any other fans — to begin claiming spots in the Grove for tent set-up that would begin later Friday. …

Katy Perry and Ole Miss boost ratings for GameDay:

Looks like the play¬†clock fairy visited the Gators for the second time this season. They’re 2-0 when allowed to snap the ball at least once after the play clock expires. …

How would one of the Big 10’s best teams do in the SEC West? Here’s the debate.

Ole Miss is at LSU on Oct. 25. Will Brandon Harris be the starting quarterback then, and will the Tigers be better on offense than they were against Mississippi State and Auburn? …

Here’s video of the hit that ended the season for BYU Heisman hopeful quarterback Taysom Hill and ended the Cougars’ CFB playoff hopes in the process. …
