Week in Review: #TheNetwork, Home Wins and Baseball Fever

The past week has been one of interest, entertainment, excitement and sometimes plain comical for the Ole Miss family.

Here are the highlights:


Twitter wars and message board mockery erupted after a Mississippi State supporter published an article claiming the Ole Miss Family, aka The Network, are involved in a nationwide Illuminati movement to secure Ole Miss football players.

The best twitter response to this disturbed individual’s conspiracy theory goes to Oxford’s finest:

Big Wins for Rebel Hoops

Ole Miss came from behind in two straight home basketball games to defeat Florida and Mississippi State. Win three at home, and that’s called a winning streak. Hotty Toddy! The Rebels play at Missouri on Saturday at 3 pm.

Ole Miss ranks No. 48 in the latest Ratings Percentage Index rankings released by the NCAA. The Rebels are 2-3 against the RPI top 30, including wins over No. 18 Arkansas and No. 29 Cincinnati. Missouri is ranked No. 160 coming into Saturday’s game.

‘Crootin on the Rise

Ole Miss landed few commitments that have bolted the Rebels ranking into one of the Top 15 classes in the nation according to various recruiting sties. Signing Day is Wednesday. #TheNetwork

Baseball Fever

The Rebels are just two weeks away from beginning their 2015 season. The 2014 CWS semi-finalist squad is poised to take another run for Omaha.

Look for a season preview in TLV No. 222! #BeerShowers
