Morgan Freeman will be in Attendance Tuesday

 

 

Tuesday’s game at Ole Miss will be the Cats toughest road test all year. It doesn’t help that God will be cheering for the other team. Who would’ve thought that Ole Miss basketball actually had a celebrity fan like the omniscient Morgan Freeman? I would’ve guessed Larry the Cable Guy or the family from Duck Dynasty, but never Morgan Freeman.

 

Freeman didn’t go to Ole Miss, but grew up close by in Memphis. Now that he’s made nearly a gazillion dollars in his lifetime by simply talking (OK, so I’m exaggerating a little bit), he now owns a home in the nice small-town of Oxford, Miss. Let’s fight fire with fire and give Ashley Judd a call. Along Came a Spider Part 2?

    Have him announce the game, that’d be awesome.

    Ashley Judd was in “Kiss the Girls,” not the sequel “Along Came a Spider” – that was Monica Potter… Duh!

    Sadly, Ashley Judd does not have much tread left on those tires.

    I gotta bad feeling Ole Miss is going to absolutely beat us to a pulp….

    This team now has nothing to lose, and they need to play that way, rebound the ball, and play defense. Allow The offense to run through Wiljer, and be sure Mays gets his shots. Goodwin needs to think pass first when he penetrates, and remember Noel keep your feet on the floor on defense when you are the primary defender. You can do this, just play to win, you having nothing to lose.

    6. I don’t know #6 I feel like they do have a lot on their shoulders because they know the disappointment the fan base and school would feel for not making the tournament, there is a lot to lose, which could be a factor as to why they aren’t really playing to potential; too much pressure!

    I wonder if Noel has any regrets about not picking syracuse? They are a top team and would like be favored to win it all if they had him. Now he may possibly be heading to the NIT.

    9.) Damn. That actually isn’t even a bad question.

    Ashley has served us very well over the years, but by now it would be nice if she had a hot (legal) daughter to pass the torch to.

    Fortunately, Andy Kennedy is white so Morgan Freeman *probably* won’t accuse BBN of being racist for cheering against him…

    12. That is a ridiculous question. Nerlens Noel could easily make the Final Four this year, and he’s on track to be the top pick in the draft. He has no reason to regret his choice. All of you folks probably predicted the NIT for us two years ago, too. I could store the perspicacity of this fanbase in a thimble.

    And how about learning some tact about Ashley Judd? People age. Deal with it, cretins.

    Noel would definitely not be first pick in draft in he didnt go to UK……im not really sold on case anyway….their only good win is the vile which are reeling

    People age all right,,,,,some just age better than others. Ashley looks like she was put up wet. Thats all right,,,Weight Watchers could always use a new spokesperson. Or maybe she could do Chick-fil-A commercials.

    #9 – Cal develops players faster than any other coach in the country. Nerlens wouldn’t have developed into the player he is now if he went there.

    First, Morgan Freeman is a native Mississippian from Coahoma County (Clarksdale). Obviously he did not go to Ole Miss because integration had not happened when he was of age to go to college. He has been the “voice” of the Ole Miss promos not to many years ago. He owns a bar on The Square in Oxford.

    I have a feeling Kentucky will play its best game of the year.

    Ashley Judd is a cats fan,,,,big deal.Is that the best we got?

  27. I remember Freeman doing a promo for the old “Turner South” cable channel and saying he was from the Mississippi Delta. I guess his family moved to north MS when he was young?

    Oh yeah, what 21 said.

    Freeman also said he was from Mississippi on an episode of ‘Through the Wormhole’.

    Comparing Ashley Judd to Morgan Freeman is like comparing Louisville’s basketball tradition to UK’s, with UK being Morgan Freeman in the equation.

    Why would the Duck Dynasty family from Louisiana be at Ole Miss basketball game?

    Why would the Duck Dynasty family from Louisiana be at Ole Miss basketball game? THATS A CLOWN QUESTION BRAH…clearly this guy knows nothing about the SEC or Oxford, if Larry the Cable guy was anywhere pretty sure it would be at a CATS game. Yeah Morgan Freeman is going to be there and the Mannings watching us rip the CATS.

    “Why would the Duck Dynasty family from Louisiana be at Ole Miss basketball game? THATS A CLOWN QUESTION BRAH”

    And the winner of tonight’s douche award is PVILLE REBEL.

    And we get it–when you’re an Ole Miss fan the best you can hope for is to beat an unranked team of freshmen. Must suck being a fan of such a shitty school that you have to come to an opposing team’s fan site to run your dick sucker about a non-tournament game.

    Take Freeman and Judd and putthem on an island together. They are both flaminging liberals.
    I would take Larry the Cable Guy over those two morons any day.

    Ashley Judd needs to go back to the plastic surgeon and get that one high eyebrow brought down…or maybe a botox injection for the lower one

    NO ASHLEY JUDD!!! I am sick of these celebity camera hogs. Judd is the biggest. She shows up when UK is winning (didn’t see during the BC era) dresses and acts like a 19 year old. It is sad and pathetic.
