Snead, Ole Miss use 'Wild Rebel' to score rare win over No. 18 LSU

From the AP via ESPN:

Jevan Snead threw two touchdown passes, Markeith Summers ran for a 13-yard score out of the "Wild Rebel" formation and Ole Miss won its fourth straight game, 31-13 against No. 18 LSU on Saturday in a rivalry game newly dubbed the Magnolia Bowl.

I don't even know what to say anymore.

LSU is now 3-4 in the SEC. Okay, they're 7-4 overall, but I wonder which bowl is going to invite them to play. The Houston Bowl maybe? The shitty Sugar Bowl wannabe called the New Orleans Bowl? At least that one would get some heavy attendance from the locals.

I should be happy that I now have extraordinarily low expectations for the Tigers. Watching them lose to the Rebels wasn't such a tough thing to do. And the WWII docu-drama Midway was on at the same time on AMC, so I was able to click back and forth when I was bored or pissed off.

You see, it's a rebuilding year now.
