Wednesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

Spring football is winding down at Ole Miss. Practice continues today. No viewing periods, but interviews afterward as last year’s first-year players will begin to be made available. Should be interesting, at least I hope so.

I’ve got an interview with Ross Bjork coming up at 11. You can watch it live on the blog. I know that will be interesting. …

The Rebels had 11 hits last night but gave up 13 and dropped below .500 on the season with a 6-5 loss to Southern Miss, their second loss this season to the Golden Eagles. It’s no to Nashville today for three games against No. 1 Vanderbilt beginning tomorrow. …

Looks like Monday night’s officials didn’t take full advantage of the instant replay.  For reasons unknown their angles were different than those of CBS that showed the nation a critical possession call should have gone to Wisconsin. What the heck? It was only the national championship.

Wisconsin fans were out in force for the championship game. Apparently none them bought into the boycott Indiana thing:

Duke students celebrated the championship by burning benches. Apparently, it’s a tradition. …

The Astros have put former Ole Miss star Alex Presley on waivers. In other baseball alum news, a few graphs here on Chris Coghlan, an Opening Day starter in the Cubs’ outfield. …

Florida State fans don’t have to worry about losing Jimbo Fisher to the NFL any time soon it appears. …

LSU walk-on Luke Boyd enjoys the challenge of being an active duty marine, full-time student and college football player all at the same time. …

Former Alabama and Georgia defensive lineman — former Mississippi juco product too — Jonathan Taylor entered a not guilty plea Tuesday to a felony domestic violence charge. …
