Hoops: Stansbury’s Here; Kennedy’s Cuffed

by

So I’m here in Cincinnati with esteemed colleague Parrish Alford. There’s snow on the ground – a little bit – and it’s freakin’ cold. But that’s OK. At least it’s not raining like it has been in Tupelo all month. And at least we’re not in jail.

Yeah, just found out that Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy was arrested late last night after an altercation with a cab driver. Check Parrish’s blog later for more details. The Rebels play Louisville at about 8 p.m. tonight (9 here).

Back to Mississippi State’s basketball team, which arrived yesterday as well. Turns out they’re sharing a hotel with the hated Rebels. MSU coach Rick Stansbury made the trip, but he is still getting as much rest as he can. The Bulldogs take on Cincinnati at 5:30 p.m. (6:30 here) on ESPN2 – here’s a preview.

There is some weird irony in all this. More later.

    A friend’s reaction (would love to take credit myself, though): You stay classy, Oxford.

    ESPN topics for tonight’s games:

    Stansbury fighting off a viral bug.
    Kennedy fighting off a hangover, racial slurs, and cab drivers.

    Glad to see that the people from ‘that other school up north’ are representing our state so well. I heard that the altercation began when the cab driver asked kennedy why he was leaving the hotel with 26 clock radios and 33 pillows.

    Where are all the rebel blow hards from yesterday’s posts? This is hilarious! What a bozo.

    Kennedy’s return to Cincy isn’t too sweet! Didn’t the Cabbie know he was in the presence of the Almighty Andy Kennedy of Ole Miss? I am sure Kennedy noticed the guy was from the Middle East and therefore expected to be treated like a King. If you aren’t from Ole Miss…you are a servant anyway…or at least that’s what they think!

    Kennedy will probably be slightly reprimanded for this…Ole Miss is used to their coaches and players getting drunk and having run-ins with the law. Normally they are able to cover these up in OXFORD…the cops there love three things: 1) Money, 2) Ole Miss, 3) their nose up Robert Khyat’s butt.

    BL: Do you have a deadline for a decision?
    CB: The first day I know, I’m going to do it (commit). I take my official visit to Alabama on Jan. 9, and then some time after that I’ll go to State. And then, I should pretty much know.
