Thursday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Thursday morning …

Bo Wallace’s recent play has earned him some Heisman mention, and that’s the subject of today’s column in the print edition which I will post later.

This is the Heisman Watch from 10 ESPN analysts from earlier this week. It has Dak Prescott way out in front and Wallace at No. 7. Wallace has a chance to climb based on who’s in front of him — one being suspended Georgia back Todd Gurley — and some matchups this weekend.

Wallace can become a real player in this race if he continues the level of play he’s shown against Alabama and Texas A&M. He’s got a head-to-head meeting with Prescott still to come.

Like with most things the recipe for success is simple: Just win baby …

The Ole Miss defense has gotten a lot of attention. Wednesday three players — Robert Nkemdiche, Senquez Golson and Cody Prewitt — were named to CBSSports.com’s mid-season All-America team. …

I don’t follow everything Danny Kanell does, so I’m not a fair judge of all his analysis, but I have noticed this:

Alabama center Ryan Kelly, hurt against Ole Miss, could play this week against Texas A&M. …

Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee is all in for the Rebels against Tennessee. His reasoning starts with the defensive front and extends to the secondary. …

Ed was on the air in Arkansas yesterday:

He offered this tid-bit along the way:

As it was explained to me it hiring Noel Mazzone, who had previously coached at Ole Miss under Tommy Tuberville, was not presented to Ed as a mandate but a suggestion. He supports that here.

    Danny Kanell and Mark May must room together. They both downplay any team the Rebels beat. First it was “Alabama’s the best team in the country” until…not so fast…Ole Miss soundly beats the Tide. Then it was “Alabama was not as good as we thought”. Then, “Texas A&M was better than the Rebels”…until Ole Miss destroyed them. Then the aggies weren’t as good as we thought. I suppose when the Rebels destroy State in the Egg Bowl, State won’t be as good as they figured.
    Kanell & May are two sorry hypocrites.

    Killer_Beeze you are right!
    I’m not too familiar with Danny Kanell… looked him up and he played at FSU… he’s just trying to keep the dream alive for FSU… This weekend will be one of the few times I’ll be rooting for Notre Dame… and GO REBS!!!
