Good morning and welcome to the pre-6 a.m. edition of Friday Chat. I am about to get on the road to Lexington.
Since Dexter says don't text and drive, he probably means don't check the blog and drive too. I've got a friend sharing the driving, though, and I'll be checking in around 10. I've got some work to do in the car along the way.
Not a bad showing for Ole Miss basketball last night, about what I expected, honestly. There were some young and talented guys doing athletic things and also making mistakes. Demarco Cox had a nice game and showed the improvement we'd been told he'd made. He seemed very encouraged by his performance in the postgame.
Football has a real shot to win this week, not only because there's been some improvement in the run game the last two weeks but also because of the opponent. If the SEC losing streak reaches 12 this weekend I suspect it will reach 13 with the next conference opportunity at home against LSU on Nov. 19.
Got questions, got answers? Leave them here. I'll check in from somewhere on I-65 later this morning.
