I can't remember seeing anyone drop the ball as much as Dez Bryant. That is, until our very own Wes (@thacktor) called me and proclaimed that he's as worthless as a John L. Smith signature on a credit application. Don't worry, I have Wes' full permission to throw him under the bus, and subsequently throw it in reverse over and over again. A lot of Ags are already either in Oxford or on their way there as I type this, so here is a late Friday edition of our Lunchtime Links. In case you were wondering, Wes' punishment is one month as middle-pede. Deal with it.
Preview: Texas A&M Aggies at Ole Miss Rebels - CBSSports.com
Watchability: This game isn't likely to determine the conference champion, but these teams are fun to watch. Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel alone makes this a game worth checking. The redshirt freshman is developing into one of the most exciting players in the SEC. Ole Miss is still developing, but it has several offensive skill players who are fun to watch.

The Skinny: While this may not be the sexiest game on Saturday – about the 3rd sexiest in the SEC to be exact – I will be glued to this game because it will be wildly entertaining. Two explosive and high-paced offenses will be doing work on a Saturday night. It’s a very underrated matchup to say the least.

Prediction for A&M & Ole Miss game? Carlton: Texas A&M wins, but it's closer than some expect. Ole Miss is not a horrible football team (see the Alabama game). Best guess: A&m 38, Ole Miss 30.

The Rebels also will provide a challenge with their read-option offensive attack. However, don't expect the Aggies to be caught off guard when Ole Miss goes up-tempo. Texas A&M is pretty familiar with that, since its own offense operates this way and practices are done at a high tempo.

"He'll want to beat us badly and we'll want to get our win, also," Freeze said. "We do a lot of the same stuff. We probably do a little bit more (variety) than he does because I feel like we have to. They do what they do and they do it very well.
