SEC Baseball Frustration

Vandy Makes Ole Miss Its Girl-Dog

Even though Ole Miss lost in multiple, embarrassing fashions on Saturday (Mercy ruled in game 1, then gave up 4 runs in the 10th of game 2) it's kinda hard to be too upset at a team that falls to the likes of the overall NCAA #1 seeded Vanderbilt Commodores. Kinda like how Ole Miss lost to the future National Champion Florida Gators in this past year's SEC Basketball Tournament...Or how Ole Miss got screwed out of Atlanta by the future BCS Champion, LSU Tigers in 2003. (I'm sensing a pattern here)

To be the best, you gotta beat the best...At least I think I heard a wrastler speak those words once. Point is, Ole Miss is far too often second, or third best.

Even so, The Rebs, along with the Dores, Hawgs and Cocks are hosting NCAA Regionals. A chance at redemption. This will be Ole Miss' forth straight year hosting a regional in Oxford. They have even hosted two super-regionals...Alas, Bianco's bunch has never made it to Omaha. I'm thinking that all sins will be forgotten if this group can just take that next step. It's what I like to refer to as "progress."
