Countdown To Kickoff: 47 Day

Today the countdown would like to honor former Rebel Tony Fein, who passed away last year. A two-year starter for the Rebels, Fein helped Ole Miss rebound from a 3-9 season as a junior to a 9-4 season and Cotton Bowl champs as a senior. He is also credited by his teammates with beginning the "Landshark" hand sign for the Ole Miss defense.

If you have a suggestion for a favorite player, play or something a little more creative you would like to see featured in the countdown, leave a comment below or shoot me an e-mail at
