Times are tough in Oxford these days. The Rebel Black Bears are coming off a 52-7 beatdown at the hands of Alabama, players are getting suspended or kicked off the team right and left, fans are taking out anti-administration newspaper ads and Houston Nutt is talking about "hanging onto that rope" (note: that damn rope seems to follow him wherever he goes).
It thus stands to reason that an unknown player will rise out of obscurity to lead Ole Miss to a victory over Arkansas, propelling the team to a winning season and bowl game that allows Nutt and Jimmy Sexton to flirt with other job offers in the offseason and leverage it all for a nice raise and contract extension. Right? Or, maybe Houston doesn't have a magic bullet this time and the Hogs will roll to a win.
We'll get into the predictions when Rasputin stops by the office later this week, but for now I'm curious to hear if the Nutt Bowl remains a extra big game for you or if you've moved on from all the drama. Put democracy to work by voting below, then share your thoughts in the comments section.
Almost four years after the end of the Houston Nutt era, how do you feel about playing against him?
