ATHENS, Ga. — With Ole Miss up 10-7 in the second quarter, Georgia had the ball and the momentum after a 66-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Aaron Murray to senior wide receiver Marlon Brown. Then, Ole Miss and Georgia combined for four turnovers in the span of five plays, and while no points were scored off the turnovers, the Rebels missed out on a prime scoring opportunity after the first of the four turnovers.

It has been almost a year since artist Brittany Bass left Athens, a city she grew to love. But setting up shop in Oxford wasn’t such a big transition; Oxford is often considered a smaller version of the city that has become known as the poster child of music and art in the South.

 

It has been almost a year since artist Brittany Bass left Athens, a city she grew to love. But setting up shop in Oxford wasn’t such a big transition; Oxford is often considered a smaller version of the city that has become known as the poster child of music and art in the South.

Bass, who graduated in May with her bachelor’s of fine arts from the University of Georgia, had visited Oxford and Mississippi before, but said that moving to Oxford was a big a change, especially considering the size of the town.

While Saturday’s game may have pitted two disappointing football teams against each other, the real match-up was that of two top 5 ranked party schools.
Over the summer, Princeton Review released its college rankings, announcing Georgia as the No. 2 party school in the nation, with the University of Mississippi right behind them at  No. 3.
Even though they are ranked ahead of the Rebels, many Georgia fans were more than impressed with what the small Mississippi school brought to the table with tailgating.

With college football only a few months away, it’s time to take an early look at the Southeastern Conference heading into the summer months. Each Friday, The Daily Mississippian’s Bennett Hipp will rank the 12 SEC teams by position as part of an eight-week series. Next week: Offensive line

 

1. Georgia: There’s not a more well-rounded special teams unit than the one residing in Athens. Senior kicker Blair Walsh returns after making 20 of 23 field goals last season for an 87-percent field goal percentage, which was second in the conference. Senior Drew Butler averaged just more than 44 yards a punt last season and is one of the SEC’s best. The Bulldogs also have a nice pair of return men in senior cornerback Brandon Boykin and junior cornerback Branden Smith.

60’s psychedelia, jangly “Kinks” era garage and strobing dancepop are all textural snippets of the band’s eclectic approach to what can only be described as musical theatre.

1. Arkansas: It will be a pickyour- poison approach for Southeastern Conference defensive coordinators this fall in regard to the Razorbacks’ core nucleus of receivers – Greg Childs, Jarius Wright and Joe Adams. Arkansas’ wideopen offensive style makes this group even more dangerous.
