Anyone who read my stuff last week knows that I was all over Ole Miss to cover against Alabama and boy did that blow up in my face. The Rebels just looked dejected and things just couldn’t get back on track once the train was off the rails. However, one thing everyone can agree on is that the Rebels are heads and shoulders the better team here. The Golden Flashes simply aren’t a good football team, and when they get big numbers, they still fail to cover. This is a game that Ole Miss will use to work out the kinks and win in blowout fashion.
