Big Jack’s Rhymes: Ole Miss Athletics

If one looks at the numbers it’s an easy call
Ole Miss athletics have hit the wall.

The basketball program is mediocre at best
And football has flunked most every test.

The loss to BYU really took the cake
The Rebels gave it away for heaven’s sake.

In placing the blame fans know where to stop
It begins and ends with the man at the top.

Coach Nutt is the man and he’d likely confess
That his tenure has not been fraught with success.

So if this season ends badly, we all know
That the time has come for Coach Nutt to go.

Some say don’t stop with the coach,what the heck
Why not get ’em all, clear the deck.

But the most telling statistic so it seems to me…
They last won the conference back in ’63.

As an old play-by-play guy I’ll stand my ground
And hope Ole Miss can turn it around.
