What’s New With Ole Miss?

It’s been almost a year since Ole Miss came into Rupp Arena and took Kentucky to overtime, so let’s spend part of our New Year’s Day getting reacquainted with Andy Kennedy’s squad.

They’re currently 10-2

…With losses to George Mason and Seton Hall in the Charleston Classic. Their biggest wins are probably Georgia State, UMass, and Memphis, the latter of which was postponed an hour because of a power outage at the FedEx Forum. Their RPI is currently 60 (Kentucky’s is 12) and they’re averaging 77.3 points per game.

Stefan Moody is still there

Moody hit five threes vs. the Cats last season and could have hit more had he not gone down with cramps. This year, he’s still doing his thing in Oxford, leading the Rebels in scoring with 23.8 points per game, a mark good enough to lead the SEC and rank eighth in the nation.

He had an interesting summer

In June, Moody underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left leg, but apparently felt good enough to go out on the town a month later, when he was popped for a DUI. Whoops!

Sebastian Saiz is still there

The well-coiffed Spaniard is second on the team in scoring and first in rebounding, averaging 11.7 points and 10.2 rebounds respectively. No word on whether or not he’s still with his girlfriend.

Randy Kennedy is a thing now

This summer, Andy Kennedy introduced his alter ego “Randy Kennedy” in a spoof of the DirectTV commercials to encourage fans to buy season tickets:

Randy made another video a few months later to do the whip and nae nae, otherwise known as the moment in which the whip and nae nae stopped being cool:

All those YouTube hits must have gone to Randy’s head because a few months after that, he did an interview with Jay Bilas:

I can’t decide if these are actually funny or if Andy’s trying way too hard. Regardless, good on him for getting Ole Miss’ name out there.

Their brand new arena opens next weekend

I’m a little bummed this year’s game is in Lexington, because next weekend, Ole Miss will play their first game in their new arena, the $96.5 million Pavilion at Ole Miss. From what I’ve seen in pictures, the arena is gorgeous and will house the largest center-hung video scoreboard in all of college sports. It also has a Steak ‘n Shake and Raising Canes inside.

Anything’s better than the Tad Pad, but this is quite the upgrade.

This guy is now my favorite Ole Miss fan of all time

The blue hairs could learn a thing or two from him.

    Kentucky’s RPI is 8, not 12.

    11.5 point spread. I think we will beat it, but Cal hates to run up on double digit spreads…

      I’m a little insignificant human being.

    How cool would $250 season tickets be?

    Has the electricity already been turned off in the old arena? That’s what it looks like from the team picture.

    Their new place looks a lot like NKUs BB&T Center (formerly The Bank of Kentucky Center). About the same layout and size.
