On any given Thursday night, you may find a group of musicians strumming and sharing laughs as they play a medley of bluegrass favorites in Hernando’s historic downtown area.

The Lady Rebels improved to 3-1 on the young season Tuesday night, defeating Mississippi Valley State, 62-60. It was far from easy, however. The Lady Rebs led by 15 at one point and never trailed in the contest, but thanks to a surge by Delta Devilettes, it took a missed three-pointer at the buzzer by MVSU to give Ole Miss the win.

Oxford Police Chief Mike Martin confirmed that University of Mississippi student John Howard Strickland has been arrested and charged with DUI in the car accident that killed Ole Miss students John and Sarah Wheats in October.

Students on campus have created The University of Mississippi Food Bank to provide food for students who are not able to afford meals.

The Lady Rebel basketball team (2-1) will look to rebound from their first loss of the season against Mississippi Valley State (1-2) tonight.

The Ole Miss football team is bowl-bound for the first time in three seasons. Immediately after the win against Mississippi State on Saturday night, The University of Mississippi Athletic Association (UMAA) Foundation released the link to the ticketing website where bowl tickets can be pre-ordered. Based on a person’s priority level and ticket availability, tickets will be available for fans wanting to attend one of the four possible bowl games to which Ole Miss is projected to be invited.

University of Mississippi students are no longer the only ones who have to worry about receiving parking tickets during the week. The city of Oxford is now enforcing strict parking laws that go into effect today.

It was a crazy scene inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Saturday night as Ole Miss fans celebrated the Rebels’ 41-24 win in the Egg Bowl over Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC), which snapped the Bulldogs’ three-game winning streak in the series. Students rushed the field after the win and surrounded players, coaches and the Golden Egg trophy.

For the first time since 2009, Ole Miss will be playing in a bowl game. The bowl berth was even sweeter this season because the Rebels (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) captured it on the last game of the year against in-state rival No. 25 Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC), with a 41-24 win Saturday night in the annual Egg Bowl. 

The Ole Miss men’s basketball team improved to 5-0 on the season as they defeated the Lipscomb Bison, 91-45, on Friday. It was the fourth time the Rebels had reached the 90-point plateau this season.

Along with Delta State and Mississippi University for Women, The University of Mississippi will begin extending waivers for out-of-state fees next year to high-achieving students.

The University of Mississippi football team has played four away games this season, with one left, and some may not realize the amount of preparation needed to take the Rebels on the road.

Ole Miss alumni in the northeastern United States have continued to extend hope to their surrounding communities two weeks after the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.
A couple Ole Miss graduates currently live in the Northeast and experienced the effects of Hurricane Sandy firsthand but wanted to help others.

Although she is new to The University of Mississippi, assistant professor Jasmine Townsend has ambitious plans in store for the recreational therapy program in the Department of Health, Exercise Science and Recreation Management.

Open Letter to Coach Freeze:

When I saw you had spoken about the events on last Tuesday evening on campus, I was hopeful to see our head coach take the opportunity to condemn those actions/thoughts/words.
Unfortunately, you took the opportunity to condemn student media and the misuse of the word “riot.”
Maybe you were worried it would affect football recruiting. Don’t you think saying “hateful and racist speech is NOT acceptable and here’s what I plan to do about it” would speak volumes to potential student athletes?

Dear Editor,

I would like to say that the events of last week with the race riots and racial slurs spoken in response to the re-election of President Barack Obama were a painful reminder of one thing: Racism still exist.  I know, being a native Mississippian, that racism still exist there, but for it to happen at Ole Miss is just downright sickening.
