Ole Miss: The Nutt Watch

Short of a mid-major of a miracle, Houston Nutt won't be coaching at the University of Mississippi after this season. In fact, it wouldn't be a big surprise if he is fired before the Egg Bowl, the season-ending rivalry game with Miss. State in which Nutt's team -- again -- will be a decided underdog.

The Right Rev's teams just haven't performed up to what Ole Miss fans' expected when Nutt fled Arkansas for Oxford. Two Cotton Bowls sure, but the Black Bears now are running second in their own state, with few expectations for that to change in 2011.

Ole Miss will be bad, but I still think they'll be better than Vandy. Now that they have that juggernaut Jacksonville State off the schedule, that should help them get better.
