Bolden Earns Hardware

Brandon Bolden recently wrapped up a career that saw him carve his name throughout the Rebel record book. The Baton Rouge tailback finished second all-time in total TDs, rushing TDs and rushing average, third in all-purpose yards and fourth in rushing yards and carries. On Monday night, Bolden received Ole Miss' Most Valuable Senior Award from the Jackson Touchdown Club. Here he is with Club President Joel Waters (left) and Scott Parenteau of C-Spire Wireless (right). Photo courtesy Elwin Williams.

Q-School Take Two For Randolph

What do Boo Weekley and former Rebel standout Jonathan Randolph have in common? They are both playing in the second stage of PGA TOUR Q School this week in Panama City, Fla.

The second stage, at the Hombre Golf Club, begins tomorrow and concludes Saturday with the final round.

Weekley has won twice on the PGA TOUR and was a key member of the 2008 winning Ryder Cup team. Unfortunately, this past year he made only 11 cuts in 23 starts, did not have a top 10 finish and ended the year ranked 180 on the money list. In his career, Weekley has earned more than $7 million.

Randolph, who turned pro this fall, has been juggling finishing up his degree in Managerial Finance with getting ready for Q School. The first stage went better than expected for the former All-American from Brandon, Miss. Randolph not only advanced to the second stage, he won the first stage by four at the Auburn University Club in Auburn, Ala.

Each stage becomes more difficult. This time, there are guys like Weekley—who have been out there and experienced what it's like to compete on the big stage—among the competitors.

Here's hoping Randolph has more good golf in the bag, as he continues his quest to play with the big boys.

Rebel Volleyball In A Top 10......

It's not the top 10 of the AVCA Coaches Poll, but the Rebels volleyball team made another top 10 poll on Saturday...one that's seen by millions of people around the world. Allegra Wells and Ole Miss Volleyball made the SportsCenter Top 10 Plays from Friday with a powerful play with a surprising result.

The play (ranked No. 2 on the top 10 plays) came in Ole Miss' match at South Carolina on Friday, Nov. 4. In the second set, Wells went up for a kill and rocketed a powerful attack at a South Carolina defender. The ball hit USC's Lexie Pawlick square in the face, but bounced back up high in the air and back over the net to the Rebel court....to fall just inside the back line for a Gamecock point.

Don't worry Rebel fans, Ole Miss went on to win the match 3-0.

Jelan Kendrick Hype

Rebel fans have been excited about Jelan Kendrick for almost a year now, since the dynamic 6-foot-7 guard arrived in Oxford by way of the Memphis Tigers.

Well, it seems the national media has taken notice, as well.

Kendrick was rated the nation's No. 3 impact transfer by CBSSports.com today. He can't play until the fall semester ends, but if he lives up to the hype, look for Ole Miss basketball to do big things in 2011-12.
