CHILL OUT, FLORIDA. It looks like the most popular woodland creature in Mississippi is staying in Oxford. Hugh Freeze signed a $4 million, 4-year deal with Ole Miss and will be sticking with the Rebels. The rest of the West just wouldn't have it any other way.
SPEAKING OF SEC. I'm sure most of us saw this quote from ESPN's Ivan Maisel about how the SEC's dominant streak is over. That's cool, hope you enjoy the evisceration of whichever hapless one-loss team has to face Nick Saban's death squad in the playoffs. When the last-place team in a division plays 8 ranked teams and still finishes bowl-eligible, that is better than "pretty good." [/sips Lipton].
PR FIRMIN'. Yep, Baylor hired a PR firm to help their playoff case, virtually guaranteeing a loss to Kansas State on Saturday. Ryan Nanni points out that the PR firms should be helping those who can't help themselves, though. Like Virginia Tech.
Have a great Tuesday, all. We're keeping track of the coaching carousel and we'll be giving you updates as we can.
