Ole Miss Football: Five Reasons Why Ole Miss Defeats The Tide

TUSCALOOSA, AL - SEPTEMBER 19: Robert Foster /

This week Ole Miss football has a bye-week. It’s a chance for Rebels to recover from the Cal game and get ready for an SEC opener against SEC West rival Bama.

The Cal game left many Ole Miss football fans with a kicked-in-the-gut feeling last weekend. I admit we all needed a bye-week after three straight weekends of college football and revelries which go with it.

Now, after a few days of recovery we are once again itching for Ole Miss football. Yes, this is a bye-week for Ole Miss football but we fans never get any rest. When it comes to OHT contributors we never even sleep without thinking up a good story-line.

Naturally, I’ve had a few good ideas in my day. I mean I have picked us to beat Bama the past 40 years and lately I’ve done pretty good. Two out of the past three really isn’t bad at all. Come on now, if TSBU can use recent history then we can too. I’m going for it.

This week we’ll focus on the next game, the SEC opener at Bryant-Denny when Ole Miss travels to Tinseltown. We all have to believe Alabama will be ranked number one next Saturday in T-town, however Bama plays a very scrappy Vandy defense this Saturday.

This isn’t the ‘normal’ game which would put us in T-town with Freeze. No, a lot has changed since we met the Tide. Now, we have a new man at the helm and he is searching to redeem himself from last week.
