Another regular season is in the books and boy was it a fun one to watch unfold.
No, Ole Miss didn’t win the SEC west, but what the Rebels did do is continue a road of progress and signs of potential greatness.
Winning a second consecutive Egg Bowl and a great probability of a New Years Six Bowl is quite an accomplishment.
Morale regarding athletics is at an all time high with the fan base.
From the moment you walk into the Vaught until the moment you go home, you can honestly say Hotty Toddy Nation is nationally relevant. From the day Eli Manning left campus after the 2003 season to 2012, Ole Miss couldn’t say that.
The football program has transformed itself into a hot spot in the last 4 years, pulling in recruits generations before me would have never thought possible.
Nkemdiche,Treadwell, and Tunsil will be suiting up for what is most likely their last games as Rebels in the upcoming bowl game, right now projected to be the Sugar Bowl.
Do not expect the Rebels to go away lightly next season. Ole Miss has an array of highly touted prospects on board to sign in February.
Don’t believe me? Just check the rankings. According to ESPN, Ole Miss at the moment has the Number 5 recruiting class in the country for 2016.
Ole Miss will forever be grateful for the impact of the 2013 recruiting class. Gone were the days of being complacent, and started the days of striving for greatness.
Sure one class doesn’t make a team, but in this case, it was the x factor. Beating the Crimson Tide in consecutive years is a feat that many Rebels will remember for a life time.
But the journey isn’t over. In fact, it is really just starting the next phase. Happy Holidays and here is to hoping for a “sweet” bowl game January 1st in New Orleans.
