Countdown To Kickoff: 19 Days

This may not be the coolest thing you have ever seen, but I guarantee its the coolest thing you will see all day.

Tony "Gator" Bennett is one of the greatest defensive players in Ole Miss history. A first-team All-SEC pick in 1989, Bennett amassed 19 career sacks (hence why he is No. 19 on the countdown) and was named to the Ole Miss Team of the Century in 1992.

In preparation for Bennett's senior campaign, my former boss Langston Rogers, decided to design a promotional poster to highlight Bennett for All-America honors. The final product is, in my opinion, the best promotional item ever produced for an all-star candidate.

And, yes, that really is Gator's pet python.

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 desnowde@olemiss.edu.
