LSU, Ole Miss Vie, Expect No Clock Issues For Miles
Written by 

Two of Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli's three interceptions were returned for touchdowns in last week's disgraceful loss to Tennessee, 52-14.

And the Rebels visit Tiger Stadium, home of the SEC's best defense, on Saturday.

Ole Miss (4-6, 1-5 SEC) has won its last two games against LSU (9-1, 5-1) and have a history of keeping it close against the Tigers. The Rebels lost their opening game to Jacksonville State.

Houston Nutt's only win in the in the last five weeks came over Louisiana-Lafayette. Are you religious? Because I'm pretty sure the football gods saw the Rebels take Masoli and declared, "No, no, no, We must smote thee."

Last year was the low water mark for Les Miles at clock management and all everybody remembered about a 25-23 loss to the Rebels at Oxford. The Tigers will have no such issues this year.

Prediction: The Tigers will cover the 16.

Other fearless college picks: Boise State -30 1/2 over Fresno State; Tulane +17 over central Florida;Tennessee -8 1/1 over Vandy; Clemson -13 over Wake Forest; Wisconsin -4 over Michigan; Iowa +3 over Ohio State; Oklahoma State +24 over Kansas; Arkansas -3 over Mississippi State;; Stanford -6 1/2 over Cal; Virginia Tech -2 1/2 over Miami (best bet);  Texas A&M +2 1/2 over Nebraska (upset special): San Diego State +2 1/2 over Utah (another upset special); and Houston +4 over Southern Miss.

LES MILES has made Bleacher's "The 50 strangest decisions in sports history" list. When it happened: Nov. 6, 2010, when the Tigers squared off against Alabama.  What happened: LSU faced a fourth-and-1 in the fourth quarter, trailing the Crimson Tide 14-13. So what did Miles do?: He went for it, with a reverse. The logic: Not sure with Les. He never says. How'd it work: Splendidly. The Tigers got 23 yards on the play and kept a drive alive that ultimately put them in the lead. Strange even if it did work. Crazy meter: Compared to some of the things Miles has done, this was tame. But for us sane human beings, it was pretty strange even if it did work."...When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
