Everyone tends to think the summer is a slow news time for the athletics department. Think again. Last week, the strategic plan was announced, and today, more big news came out of 908 All-American Drive (that's the campus address for the administration building if you didn't pick up on that). The Rebels now have a communications & marketing director and his name is Michael Thompson. He brings a great deal of expertise to the department, and his presence could be felt right here on the blog. It was also announced today that the UMAA Foundation posted a record $17.1 million in fundraising for the 2010 fiscal year. Great job by Danny White and his crew! Keep on eye an OleMissSports.com for more good stuff later this week.
