"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."
Mississippi has indefinitely suspended guard Marshall Henderson for a violation of team rules, the school announced Wednesday.
The suspension is a result of multiple failed drug tests, sources told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
... and Ole Miss knew that he was undisciplined and had numerous run-ins with the law.
Henderson came to Ole Miss with a history of discipline problems. He was arrested in both 2009 and 2011 and served time in jail after the second arrest because he violated his probation. Ole Miss has said the coaches were aware of Henderson's past when he signed with the program.
I wonder how this is affecting choices of Derrick Green, others...

This will probably end up on mgolicious, but anyways, I present, by way of Fearless Leader, the first This Week In Schadenfreude of the new season:
Peyton Manning was interviewed on NPR this morning with Eli and Archie to plug the children's book they wrote together. The host asked Peyton why he decided against going to Ole Miss after his father played there.
Peyton's answer paraphrased:
Oh, I don't know. I almost went to Ole Miss; I was ready to go there. My problem was that you had to just choose one school. I would've loved to go to Ole Miss for a couple of years, then go to the University of Michigan for a couple of years, then go to Tennessee.
Maybe a Heisman would've been behind Door No. 2, Peyton.
does anyone else think ole miss is overrated going into the season? does anyone know why they are so high in the countdowns (#5 SN, #8 rivals) and the preseason poll (#10 AP)?
maybe it is just because of jevan snead, or maybe it is due to the fact that they signed enough guys in their 2009 recruiting class to fill 1500 CHEM, but i don't think the rebels have been any good since 1962.
