Rebels look to pick up the pace
The Rebels offense has shifted from last year's pro style offense to more of a high tempo attack, or what the coaching staff likes to call “basketball on grass.”

Of all the movies coming out this year, “Prometheus” was the one I was looking forward to the most. I expected it to be the next great sci-fi film and to explore the origins of man and the mythology of the “Alien” franchise. To paraphrase a line from the movie, “I was wrong. I was so wrong.”

I thought my disappointment was due to my expectations – I expected a lot from “Prometheus” – but later, as I enjoyed Corinth’s finest Chinese cuisine, I thought, “No, I would have been disappointed anyway.”

During John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign in the 1960s, Kennedy found himself under a great deal of scrutiny because of his Roman Catholic background.  Many Republicans attacked Kennedy by saying that if he became president, he would be too heavily influenced by the papacy.  Many feared that this influence would affect the way he would lead the country and would jeopardize America’s longstanding freedom of religion.

Rooster Blues is a self-described, Hattiesburg-based brother-duo that hails from the birthplace of rock ’n roll. These Jimi Hendrix acolytes have been laying down their blend of blues, funk, jazz and good old-fashioned rock ‘n roll into an electrifying live show since 2003. Since then, they’ve recorded three albums and picked up a bluegrass flavor to their style.

“Dance like there’s no tomorrow.” This clichéd quote is one that I include in my life as often as possible. If you ask any of my friends, they will quickly tell you that I absolutely love to dance. Hopefully, they’ll tell you that I’m an extremely good dancer, too.

After a lackluster performance during Tuesday’s practice, the Ole Miss football team came back strong Thursday, said head coach Hugh Freeze.
“I couldn’t be more pleased really,” Freeze said. “The way they bounced back from what I thought was a half-hearted effort. I didn’t think their attitude was bad, but I didn’t think we gave great effort for the entire practice Tuesday.

Lightning in a bottle twice. That’s how search committee co-chair and FedEx executive Mike Glenn described the hires of football coach Hugh Freeze and the recently introduced Athletics Director Ross Bjork, who previously served in the same capacity at Western Kentucky. The committee, which included Glenn, co-chair Archie Manning and Chancellor Dan Jones, agreed Bjork’s vision, qualifications, integrity and character set him apart from “a strong pool of candidates for the position.” In his introduction, Jones stressed the importance of athletics for Ole Miss, as well as excellence in the overall university.

I love buzz bands. I love them more than most Americans should, but they always follow the same pattern: a leaked single that stuns everyone, an album that gets placed on many critics’ album-of-the-year lists, extreme overexposure and then a second album that about 10 people buy.

Well, our semester is now in full swing. Papers are due, tests are coming up and group presentations have been scheduled. If you’re like me, you’ve also got multiple meetings scheduled during the week, dinner dates, interviews, sporting events, service projects and more meetings.

I’m not in a fraternity, so I can only imagine how crazy my life would be if Greek life was thrown into the mix as well.

Pitchers:

While there is still a lot to be determined in this young pitching staff, one thing is clear: there is depth. The weekend starters are not yet set, but it looks as though freshman Bobby Wahl and senior R.J. Hively will take the hill on Fridays and Saturdays, respectively, for the Rebels. The Sunday spot seems to be down to three guys, but it’s anyone’s battle at the start of spring practice.

“Coach (Mike Bianco) has said that whoever performs the best is going to get the weekend spots, so we’ll see what happens,” Wahl said.

Sophomore Mike Mayers may have a slight lead at the moment with a season of SEC experience under his belt. However, freshmen Josh Laxer and Hawtin Buchanan, as well as juniors Tanner Bailey and Dylan Chavez, are right there in the mix. Look for Mayers to take the Sunday spot to start the season with two of the other four pitchers to fill the mid-week spots.

“(Mayers’) slider is something he’s worked on since last year,” head coach Mike Bianco said. “I think it’s just normal progression. He pitched over 50 innings last season, which is a ton for a freshman. The slider is better, but I think he’s better all around.”

Junior Brett Huber will be counted on in the late innings of the game and fill the closer’s role as he did his freshman year.

“Right now, I’m just working on commanding the strike zone and stuff like that,” Huber said. “I’m just working on being more consistent out there. Last year I had some problems with that.”

The Oxford Board of Aldermen and the University of Mississippi have initiated updates to the Oxford-University Transit system in the past few weeks. Along with blue, red, yellow and green lines, a purple line will be added to the mix, creating a Saturday route.  
This new purple line will accommodate a very specific, growing issue that has been voiced and observed within Oxford: some transit-dependent people have trouble traveling around Oxford on the weekend when the green and yellow lines do not run.

Just how bad are the state's reading scores? 

 

For quite some time, billboards across Mississippi have read, “Our children can’t read: ippississiM.”  

It is difficult for many to imagine living in a world without the ability to read.  

Lacking this ability has tremendous and adverse effects on individuals who seek to effectively communicate with friends, colleagues and family.

As Associated Student Body attorney general Evan Kirkham stood on the top step of the Lyceum for the third time to make an announcement about the results of Miss Ole Miss, the two remaining campaigns stood by in anticipation, ready for the whole process to be over. 

The moment Kirckham announced Mary Alex Street was the victor, the air turned to a mixture of excitement from Street’s campaign, disappointment from Emily Monsour’s side and an overall sigh of relief that everything was finally over.
