How about the Ole Miss Rebels!

Houston Nutt completes an incredible first season with a good ole fashioned whooping of No. 7 Texas Tech

SCOTT JACOBS

Well how about dem cottons?

Ole Miss dashed, slashed, and crashed any hopes Texas Tech had of finishing their dream season on Friday, as they obliterated the defenseless Red Raiders, in a stunning bowl victory, that one would argue is the most stunning this bowl season.

Sure, you can call Vandy’s win over Boston College a shocker, but this one featured a top 10 team getting beatdown, and putdown, and any argument Texas Tech ever thought they had of being national title worthy– is gone out the window with this pitiful performance.  What a job Houston Nutt has done with this Ole Miss team.  With their win in the Cotton Bowl the Rebels can lay claim to being the only team to beat Florida (in the regular season) and just the second team to knock off the Red Raiders.  Two top 10 wins in a season where the Rebels were supposedly rebuilding?  Now that’s something folks.

Texas Tech just played a bizarre game.

On a fourth and four in the second half on their own side of the field the Red Raiders opted not to punt, which was understandable, until they ran the play– a quarterback sneak!  What in the world were they thinking?  It was one of the most dumbfounding plays I’ve ever seen.  And I’ve watched a lot of football.

Ole Miss was preparing to finish off the Red Raiders deep inside Tech territory late in the game, but they fumbled the ball and Tech came up with it.  Fittingly, on the next play, Graham Harrell was sacked, the ball squirted loose, and Ole Miss was rewarded a safety putting them up 40-28.  Alas, on one last ditch onside kick attempt, Texas Tech kicked the ball perfectly, the ball was well within their grasp, and they couldn’t come up with it.  It’s as if they just expected to win. Because they sure as hell didn’t look prepared for this game.

M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i  SPELLS… Shocker!  47-34 who saw that one coming?  The highest scoring Cotton Bowl ever.  Ole Miss finished the year with six wins in a row.

Mike Leach looked disinterested in this game.  He had this stupid look on his face the whole game, that just screamed we should be in a BCS bowl game.  Well, they certainly didn’t come out and show it today.  And as if the SEC vs. Big 12 argument needed any steam, well this won’t help.  The lesser rated Rebels of the SEC took it to the mighty Red Raiders out of the Big 12, and already Florida looks better then they did yesterday.

But check this out…

Texas Tech beat Texas.
Texas beat Oklahoma.
Oklahoma plays Florida.
Which lost to Ole Miss.
Ole Miss beat Florida.

What does it all mean?  I don’t know… “But no one expected this,” said Pat Summeral.  Yeah, and that may have been the worst announced game I’ve ever seen.  And who could have expected that?  O right, it was on Fox.

Nevermind.
