‘Faith in America’s Future’ President Barack Obama celebrated the official start of his second term in office Monday, committing himself to lead the nation in its “never-ending journey.”

President Barack Obama waves to crowd after his Inaugural speech at the ceremonial swearing-in on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol during the 57th Presidential Inauguration in Washington on Monday morning.
President Barack Obama was officially sworn into his second term Monday at the White House before a crowd of more than 800,000. Obama was sworn in by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., using both the Lincoln Bible
and one that once belonged to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Standing aside, Obama observed the importance of the day. “I want to take a look one more time; I’m not going to see this again,” Obama said to
those standing beside him. Obama recommitted himself to applying Constitutional principles in a modern context in his 19-minute inaugural address. “But we have always understood that when times change,
so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action,” said Obama See OBAMA, PAGE 5

This past semester was used as a trial run for the smoking ban, but beginning today, the ban will be strictly enforced on campus by UPD and university officials. Warnings will no longer be given, and $25 tickets will be issued to each individual found smoking, whether student, faculty or staff.
Jamarion Pegues, 5, sings ‘This Little Light of Mine,’ as the commemorating group marches on the Square. Omega Psi Phi advisor Jerone Smith of Oxford said the fraternity put the event at the Oxford Second Baptist Church on to pass on the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to the future generations. The event drew a crowd of about 50 people, both black and white, and Smith said it was very important to have both black and white people singing and walking hand in hand together. See pg. 4 for more photos from the event.
The work of two committees on campus has helped give The University of Mississippi a better image in the wake of the Nov. 6 election-night disturbance The Incident Review Committee was created in response to a letter written by faculty to Chancellor Dan Jones. The letter, which was signed by 110 faculty and staff members at the university, voiced concerns about how the university had publicly handled the disturbance on campus. “The Incident Review Committee was established after the election-night event specifically to determine the facts of what happened that night,” said Donald Cole, committee member and assistant provost. “The university legal system will use the results of this committee to determine if judicial processes should proceed.” Cole said the committee sent a report to the administration before the end of the semester, and the findings of the committee should be made public soon. However, the committee’s work is subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education. University officials said the committee will not be required to give any statements. Another committee, called the Sensitivity and Respect Committee, existed before the election-night disturbance and is chaired by Cole. He said that while these two committees are similar, they play See WORK, PAGE 6

Welcome back to yet another spring semester! I have to be honest with you, I’ve been living under a holiday rock for the past six weeks. I haven’t watched much news, I’ve barely looked at my required textbooks and I temporarily forgot Blackboard existed. I can’t tell you much of what all has happened in the outside world; I found out Obama was inaugurated by way of a Huffington Post push notification. Maybe you’re in a similar situation. If so, consider this a brief overview of some of the more important things that happened over the break. The Newtown, Conn., shooting broke all of our hearts. Even living under a T H E D A I LY

rock, it was impossible not to hear about the horrible unfolding of events at Sandy Hook Elementary School; however, you might have managed to miss the predictable and massive gun control debate that has resulted. Just this past week, a large number of people across the country began criticizing Walmart for selling firearms. A petition that started on Change.org asking Walmart to stop “selling and advertising assault weapons” has received more than 114,000 signatures. Another situation making many Americans angry is tax increases. After finding ourselves dangling on the edge of a “fiscal cliff,” many people receiving their first paycheck of 2013 were surprised to find their check lighter than normal. This is due to a payroll tax hike, but judging by Twitter and Facebook, no one can seem to decide whom to blame for it — Obama and Democrats, Republicans or the whole lot.

No matter whose fault it is, the reality remains: We’re all making less money this year than we did last year. One of the stranger stories that emerged over break involved Notre Dame football player Manti Te’o and his girlfriend who never existed. Last year, Te’o received a call from his parents telling him his grandmother had passed away; just a few hours later, he received another phone call with more bad news. His girlfriend had passed away as a result of leukemia. Te’o went on to play a game that week because his girlfriend had made him promise he wouldn’t miss a game if anything happened to her. It was a moving game, and students at Notre Dame did a lot to show their support. But what we didn’t know was that Te’o had never actually met this girl in person, and then this month news surfaced that she didn’t even exist. Te’o claims it was a prank and that he had no part of it, but some of his comments

from last year have left people wondering if he might have been involved in the hoax as well. Manti Te’o’s situation was not the only sports letdown that occurred over break. After vehemently denying allegations of doping for months, Lance Armstrong officially admitted his guilt in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. As a result, Armstrong lost over $75 million in sponsorship deals, had to distance himself from Livestrong, the cancer charity he founded, and lost the respect and admiration of many fans.

It’s always Obama’s fault BY TIM ABRAM email@example.com
This year has already brought significant changes. It began with our football team delivering a crushing defeat in the BBVA Compass Bowl (Hotty Toddy!). Our basketball team is currently ranked No. 1 in the SEC and is 4-0 in SEC play for the first time since 1937. And to top all of that off, Hugh Freeze and his staff have been on a recruiting tear, securing commitments from the likes of Laquon Treadwell, Elijah Daniel, Kailo Moore and Lavon Hooks, just to name a few. These are all changes we thoroughly embrace and enjoy. However, the new year also brought in an expiration of a previous tax provision that formerly decreased employee shares of the Social Security payroll taxes. The tax provision that lowered the percentage of Social Security payroll taxes from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent was enacted in December 2010 Theremained Daily Mississippian and that way until December 2012. when Serving theSo, Ole Missthe & first checks of 2013 came in, Oxford Communities they were noticeably lighter than the last one ofSince 2012.1911 And people were outraged, to say the least.
Culprit No. 1, of course, was President Barack Obama. Soon after the first checks of 2013 were received, my Facebook News Feed became a hotbed for asinine comments aimed at the president. I even saw an eCard that said something along the lines of, “At least they (the government, I assume) can send me a picture of the ghetto family I’m supporting with my taxes.” One girl said that she had had it with Obama taking her taxes and giving them to people to buy cell phones. She probably drew this hasty conclusion from a misleading Tea Party ad that shows a black woman saying, “Keep Obama in president ... He gave us a phone.” However, according to a New York Times editorial, Obama is not passing out phones, but rather the phones are the product of a government program that provides low-income people with free or cheap phones, a government program started under George W. Bush. An online ABC News article stated, “(T)he idea for subsidized phone service ... originated under the Ronald Reagan administration after the break of AT&T. The program is paid for by the telecommunications companies through the nonprofit Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), not through taxpayer revenue.” I understand that Obama is an imperfect president and that some of his initiatives
have failed. For those failures, the criticism he receives is warranted and just. However, it is vital that people are knowledgeable about the general claims they make. An article in Forbes referenced comedian Chris Rock’s stand-up act that provided an analogy depicting the feelings of some Americans in regard to payroll tax reduction expiring. Chris Rock said, “You go to a restaurant; you’re accustomed to eating. When you leave, you’re not eating anymore. They don’t owe you a steak.” To some extent, the same principle applies to the expiration of the payroll tax reduction. I do not remember posts from any people praising the Obama administration for proposing the reduction, which put more money into their pockets. How quickly we forget. If some wish to assess blame for all of the problems to one man, that’s their right. However, I just ask that all of those who want to be political activists on Facebook take the time to get a basic understanding of the complexities of Congress and the nature of the extreme polarization of our two major parties. I know that President Obama isn’t going to always get it right; I just wish some would realize it’s not always Obama’s fault. Tim Abram is a public policy junior from Horn Lake.

Will smoking be enforced?
BY PHIL McCAUSLAND firstname.lastname@example.org
The daily emails from UM Today continue to inform its readers that the university is going to get serious about the smoking ban. According to the email, “the University of Mississippi will strictly enforce our smoke free campus policy. Warnings will not be issued to those found smoking on campus; all violators, including faculty, staff, students, visitors, and contractors, are instead subject to a $25 per violation fine.” How enforcement will be accomplished efficiently is unknown, but they’re using a harsh tone so they must not be messing around. This past semester was supposed to mark the beginning of the policy, with UPD officers handing out “Smoker Info Cards.” I have not met a single person who has received one. I myself have smoked on campus and never been given a card. At first, I hid in the darkest corners of campus. Locked doorways, bushes, secret and
lonely patches of desolate land became my hangout spots on particularly stressful afternoons, but soon I realized that no one seemed to care. People were smoking on the steps of the library, outside of the Union, up and down Fraternity Row. If these people had the cojones to walk around campus flaunting their life choices, then so could I. I stayed away from heavily populated areas and disposed of my butts responsibly, but I smoked out in the open and never faced trouble. If last semester was a test, it was a failure. The university’s noncommittal attitude is irritating. On game days, it’s fine to smoke wherever you want. On regular days, we’re told that smoking will cause you to be tossed into a basement dungeon of Kinard (this is an exaggeration), but we have no evidence to show that this is true. There has been limited-tono enforcement of the policy and the website, olemiss.edu/ smokefree, does not seem to have been updated since this past semester. Has the university lost the passion to ban smoking? If so, they should begin a discussion with community members and find a resolution that will work.

He was inducted into the Ole Miss Hall of Fame during the 200708 school year and was also honored as a Ronald E. McNair Scholar.
Ole Miss alumnus Jermaine T. Jackson died Friday in Rockville, Md., in an incident currently being investigated by Maryland State Police. Police reports said that Jackson was pulled over for not wearing a seat belt and reportedly shot himself as the state trooper stepped out of his car. The officer called out verbal commands to an unresponsive Jackson and called for backup after hearing the gunshots. Upon arrival, troopers found a handgun on the car’s console and Jackson wounded in the torso. Jackson was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency medical responders. Jackson was inducted into the 2007-08 University of Mississippi Hall of Fame. He graduated in 2008 with bachelor’s degrees in political science and journalism, and in 2010
received a Master of Arts in higher education/student personnel. While studying at The University of Mississippi, Jackson served as cabinet director of the Associated Student Body, treasurer of the Mortar Board senior honor society and online editor of The Daily Mississippian. He was also on the NewsWatch and yearbook staffs. He was honored as a Ronald E. McNair Scholar. He worked for the university’s Office of Financial Aid as an adviser and by The University of Mississippi Foundation as an IT associate. Jackson was employed as the coordinator of academic advising at the University of Maryland and had previously served as an academic adviser at both the University of Maryland and at The University of Mississippi’s Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College.

of the American mind set that is necessary for success during the next four years and in the future. Obama called for national unity in the pursuit of progress. “This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience,” the president said. “A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. America’s possibilities are limitless. For we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands: youth and drive; diversity and openness; an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention. “My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it — so long as we seize it together.” Obama echoed his longtime commitment to the advancement of equality, emphasizing that Americans are “equal, not just in the eyes of God, but also in our own.” “We do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few,” the president said. “We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. “We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths — that all of us are created equal –- is the star that guides us still.” University of Mississippi students Adam Blackwell, public policy junior, and Courtney Pearson, English education senior, attended the inauguration. “Pearson called Senator Wicker’s office, and we got tickets from there,” Blackwell said. Blackwell emphasized the motivational quality of the inauguration. “It was very inspiring to be in this place with so many people from so many different backgrounds, and yet we all came together in unity to support our country and our president,” he said. Pearson reflected on the day’s significance for her. “It was an honor to be there and was especially important for me because it follows my first time voting in a presidential election,” she said. Acknowledging that the inauguration took place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Blackwell said, “Dr. King fought for providing voting rights to all Americans, and today we were together to celebrate the product of democracy on a very important day.”

completely different roles for Ole Miss. “The Sensitivity and Respect Committee is a standing committee, meaning that it is a permanent committee used to advise the chancellor,” Cole said. “The committee’s objective is to serve as an immediate point of contact for any member of our university community who is subjected to actions or words that are in conflict with our EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) antidiscrimination policy.” Since the election-night disturbance brought so much negative national attention to the university, the chancellor appointed additional members of the university to the standing committee to help expedite the report on the disturbance, according to Cole. Public policy junior Tim
Abram was one of the additional people appointed to the Sensitivity and Respect Committee in November as a student body representative. “Working on this committee towards recommendations to improve our campus climate is a responsibility that I do not take on lightly,” Abram said. The report to the administration from the Incident Review Committee was filed before the fall semester ended, and the report to the chancellor from the Sensitivity and Respect Committee should be filed by April, granting the administration’s desire to expedite the process to protect the university to the best of its ability. “It sounds like the university is handling everything very well with these committees,” business freshman Jeff Schultz said. “When we left for winter break, everything seemed like a mess. Now, it seems to be a lot better.”

Greg Earnest, a math instructor at Northwest Mississippi Community College, is directing the production, which traces the chaotic journey of Claire, an amnesiac who is kidnapped. Earnest said he believes the play can teach viewers perspective. “This chaos uncovers many unknown things about each and every character, proving that not everything is exactly how it seems,” Earnest said. Earnest said he is looking for a diverse cast. “I am looking to cast four men and three women, ages 18 and

In addition to hosting community-led productions, Theatre Oxford is holding workshops for youth to introduce them to opportunities in dramatic arts. Pamela Massey, former president of Theatre Oxford,

Music and misery: Which comes first?
LEFT TO RIGHT: COURTESY WILCO, PENGUIN GROUP PUBLISHING, & ATLANTIC RECORDS
BY KYLE CROCKETT email@example.com
In Nick Hornby’s modern classic, “High Fidelity,” the main character, Rob Fleming, ponders the music lover’s chicken-and-egg question. He asks: “What came first, the music or the misery? Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music? Do all these records turn you into a melancholy person?” Rob’s point is this: Throughout pop music’s history, it has been one of society’s favorite mediums for personal expression, and, as humans, that expression is often one of sadness, rejection, pain or trial. I’m the first to admit that
I idolize several musical artists, and many of those artists have made a living on heartbreak. Did I turn to these sad songs to soothe my own dismay and find an empathetic voice? Or have my heroes instilled an omnipresent sense of loss and sadness within me? This is an interesting notion, and maybe Rob’s is a question worth asking. Regardless, I’m going to ask it. The first name that comes to mind is the father of soul himself, Otis Redding. Redding worked his way into legend with classics like “You Left the Water Running” and “I’ve Got Dreams to Remember,” spelling out his sorrow line by line, tear by tear. The love and loss that Redding endured provided a
backdrop for a musical phenomenon, creating a heartbroken attitude among millions of listeners and defining soul music for the world. Is it possible that listening to legends like Redding, obsessing over their ageless songs of love lost, could have instilled a similar despair within our own subconscious? I’ve often said that “Big O” can “teach you how to cry,” only to imply how truly heartbroken and empathetic he can make a listener. However, I wonder if I mean it a bit more than I thought. Let’s try a more recent favorite of mine: Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and his (ever-changing) gang have recorded music for the last 25 years, and while the group has seen
many changes in sound, approach, personnel and attitude, songs of sadness, loss and melancholy lurk in every record. From “Too Far Apart” in 1994 to “Born Alone” in 2011, many of Wilco’s staples have been songs that will rip your heart out. Here’s a situation that fights for the “I listened to music because I was miserable” cause. In times of personal trial, I have constantly used Wilco as a coping mechanism, finding empathy in its heart-wrenching tunes. On the other hand, Redding has given us so much music to dance to. How can this star of heartbreak also sing celebratory, upbeat classics like “Hey Hey Baby” and “The Happy Song”?
Wilco told us how “Misunderstood” it was, but it also took us on optimistic rockers like “I’ve Got You (At the End of the Century),” and even offered its whole self in service to you at your lowest hour with “Wilco (The Song).” Old man Cash ripped our hearts to pieces with “I Still Miss Someone” (and 85 percent of the rest of his catalog), but he gave us so much to laugh about when he sang about building a big, black Cadillac one piece at a time, and it didn’t cost him a dime. Sure, Neil Young depressed me with songs like “Helpless,” but he taught me how to tell a story with “Down by the River” and “Cortez the Killer.” Surely this music and misery business is only part of the equation, right? I think Rob was on to something. Moreover, I think it was his constant pessimism that prevented him from getting all the way there. I definitely listen to pop music if I get miserable, and I know I’ve been miserable because I listened to pop music. But I also know I’ve been euphoric, in love, moved and humbled because I listened to pop music. I’ve developed opinions and handled myself the way I have because of the music I’ve listened to. It’s as a much a part of me as CocaCola, and that includes all shades of pop music, not just the good parts. All things considered, I’ve come to a new question. Did I listen to pop music because I’m Kyle Crockett? Or am I Kyle Crockett because I listened to pop music? I think I know the answer.

Hoops off to best start in SEC since 1936-37 What a COLUMN
Ole Miss basketball is off to a 4-0 start in SEC play for the first time since the 1936-37 season, as NCAA Tournament talk heats up in Oxford. BY TYLER BISCOFF firstname.lastname@example.org
The culture of Ole Miss basketball seems to be changing. The Rebels, who are 15-2 overall, are winning in a fashion not seen in more than 70 years. The fans are taking notice, too. For the first two home conference games against Missouri and Arkansas, the Tad Smith Coliseum was sold out. The support isn’t lost on head coach Andy Kennedy. “The spotlight’s gotten a little bit brighter,” Kennedy said. “We’ve had great support, two great crowds, a lot of energy in the building and that helps us.” Ole Miss opened conference play on the road and handed the Tennessee Volunteers a 92-74 defeat. Junior guard Marshall Henderson lit up Knoxville, scoring 32 points in his SEC debut. He knocked down 13 of 14 free throws, as Ole Miss made 38 of 42 free throws, the most any Kennedy team has attempted or made in a single game. The Rebels returned home and won its SEC home opener, 64-49, against the Missouri Tigers. It was Missouri’s first road game in the SEC, and the team played without its leading scorer, Laurence Bowers, who had a sprained MCL in his right knee. Senior forward Murphy Holloway took advantage and scored a game-high 22 points in a defensive battle. Ole Miss then traveled to Nashville and withstood a record-setting 3-point shooting night by the Vanderbilt Commodores. The Rebels trailed by as many as 13 points, as Vanderbilt poured in 17 3-pointers, a Memorial Gym record. Kevin Bright gave Vanderbilt a three-point lead with 3.2 seconds remaining, but Henderson rescued the Rebels by hitting a 35-foot shot at the buzzer. Ole Miss dominated the overtime session, as Vanderbilt didn’t hit a 3 in overtime, and Ole Miss won 89-79. Returning home, the Rebels improved to 4-0 with a 76-64 win against the Arkansas Ra-

zorbacks. Five different players scored in double figures, and Holloway and senior forward Reginald Buckner recorded double-doubles. However, the early conference play hasn’t been a breeze for the Tad Smith Coliseum itself. There were multiple delays during the Missouri game to mop moisture off the floor. More notably, the Arkansas game was delayed for about 30 minutes because the lights went out with 5:37 remaining in the first half. The outage was attributed to a campuswide surge. This season will likely see two names atop the Ole Miss record books. Holloway is now 22 rebounds away from becoming the all-time leading rebounder in Ole Miss history, and Kennedy is five wins away from becoming the alltime most-winning coach in Ole Miss history. Henderson honored, Rebels ranked in both polls Junior guard Marshall Henderson has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. A native of Hurst, Texas,
Henderson averaged 21.0 ppg in a pair of victories over Vanderbilt and Arkansas. Against the Commodores, Henderson scored a gamehigh 26 points, including a 35-foot buzzer beater that sent the game into overtime. He added 16 points and a career-high five steals in the Rebels’ win against Arkansas Saturday. Henderson is the SEC’s leading scorer this season, averaging 18.9 ppg, and has helped lead the Rebels to their first 4-0 start in the SEC since 1936-37. Ole Miss is also
ranked in both top-25 polls, checking in at No. 23 in the Associated Press poll and No. 24 in the USA Today/Coaches’, for the first time since 2010. Ole Miss will host Tennessee Thursday night in Oxford, and the game will also be shown on ESPN2. Tip is set for 6 p.m. Ole Miss Sports Information contributed to this report.

The past year has been quite a turnaround for Ole Miss athletics, especially Rebel football. At this time last year, it seemed like nothing was going right for any athletics program on campus. Head football coach Hugh Freeze was working tirelessly on the recruiting trail hoping to get Ole Miss out of the SEC cellar, while hoping to get nearly 30 of his players academically eligible for the fall. Rebel basketball was sitting at 13-6 overall and 3-2 in SEC play. And on top of all of that, Ole Miss was looking for a new leader for their athletics department. One year later, fans are excited about the future of the football program after Freeze led his squad to a 7-6 record with a 38-17 win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl Jan. 5, and head basketball coach Andy Kennedy has his team off to the best start since the 1936-37 season with a 4-0 record in conference play. The difference? Leadership. Ever since Ross Bjork was named as the new athletics director at Ole Miss, there’s been a renewed energy throughout the athletics department from the players and coaches to the fans. Freeze surpassed everySee DIFFERENCE, PAGE 15

Lady Rebel basketball winless in SEC play It has been a tough start to SEC play for the Lady Rebels, who are 0-5 in conference play so far. Ole Miss will face Florida on the road Thursday at 6 p.m., which will run on CSS.
OLE MISS SID
Rebel netters conclude play at NCTC
BY JOHN LUKE McCORD firstname.lastname@example.org
After head coach Adrian Wiggins was fired in October, interim women’s basketball head coach Brett Frank had his back against the wall. So far, he’s made the best of a messy situation, as the Lady Rebels are 7-11 overall and 0-5 in SEC play. Ole Miss has had some close calls this year against LSU, Alabama and, most recently, a 73-72 overtime loss to Missouri. The Lady Rebels came close to beating LSU in Baton Rouge. They held a 40-39 lead at the half. The game featured seven ties and 12 lead changes with LSU coming out on top, 84-79. Against Alabama, the Lady Rebels would not go away. They trailed most of the game but made runs at the Tide. In the end, they couldn’t catch up, and Alabama won 83-75 in Oxford. Sunday against Missouri, the misfortune continued for Frank and the Lady Rebels. The Lady Rebels made a play to tie the game at the end of regulation; however, at the end of the overtime period, they fouled and sent Missouri to the line with little time remaining. They hit one free throw and went on to win 73-72 in Oxford.

“I thought our effort was there,” Frank said. “This team’s resilient. This team will fight to the bitter end. As long as we have that uniform on that says Ole Miss, we’re going to fight and do everything we can to compete.” Perhaps the brightest of bright spots for the Lady Rebels in SEC play has been sophomore Tia Faleru, who

has averaged 16.6 points per game. She recorded a double-double in the SEC opener and scored a careerhigh 24 points against Alabama. “Tia is such an important part of our game,” Frank said. “In conference play, she’s been phenomenal. She’s actually been phenomenal since the first week of December.” Not to be overlooked this season is the play of sophomore point guard Valencia McFarland and junior guard Diara Moore. McFarland is averaging 11.3
points, 5.0 assists and 2.6 steals per game. Moore, a junior college transfer from Independence Community College, is averaging 11 points per game and has scored in double figures a team-leading 12 times this season. The Lady Rebels will travel to Gainesville, Fla., to play the Florida Gators (136, 2-3) Thursday at 6 p.m. on CSS.

one’s realistic expectations in year one on the gridiron, and from the looks of things in the recruiting world, Freeze is looking to take the next step with his football program. In the past week, the Rebels have garnered commitments from Laquon Treadwell, who is the No. 1 wide receiver and No. 5 overall prospect according to Rivals.com, Marcus Robinson, a three-star linebacker from Memphis, and Elijah Daniel, a four-star defensive end according to Rivals.com. But it doesn’t stop there. Currently, Ole Miss ranks No. 10 in Rivals.com, No. 12 in Scout.com, No. 13 in 247sports. com and No. 19 in ESPN’s team recruiting class rankings. That number is sure to go up as National Signing Day (Feb. 6) nears if Ole Miss can land other top prospects, such as Robert Nkemdiche, who is the No. 1 prospect according to all servic-

We are looking forward to hosting the ITA Kick-Off Weekend next Friday and Saturday, and want to encourage all our fans to come out and watch some great tennis.” Ole Miss will host the ITA Kick-Off Weekend Jan. 25-26 at the Gillom Sports Center.

right now, fans want to watch Ole Miss basketball. Why the sudden change in culture? Leadership. Ole Miss now has a guy in Bjork who isn’t afraid to challenge the fan base. He did it in football and nearly broke the all-time season attendance record at VaughtHemingway Stadium, which is sure to be broken in the next few years, and now he’s getting the Rebel faithful to pack the “Tad Pad” for basketball games. Not to mention, the 50,000plus Rebel fans that packed Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., for Ole Miss’ bowl win. Things are just different in Oxford these days. It doesn’t matter what sport you’re talking about. There’s a feeling of belief that hasn’t been around for some time, and who would’ve thought it this time last year. What a difference a year makes.

Rebels fare well at Michigan Invite ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Ole Miss women’s tennis junior Caroline Rohde-Moe captured the Michigan Invitational singles title Sunday, going undefeated in all three of her matches at No. 1 singles on the weekend to lead a successful start to the spring for the Rebels. The Rebels won a total of 12 singles matches on the weekend, including five on Sunday. Rohde-Moe earned a total of 24 points in singles. Sunday, Rohde-Moe, ranked No. 30 in the nation, defeated No. 35 Katie Vasenina of South Florida 6-2, 6-3. In her first match, Rohde-Moe topped Michigan’s Emina Bektas, who finished last year ranked inside the top 15. Saturday, Rohde-Moe downed 39thranked Elizabeth Kilborn of Georgia Tech 6-3, 6-3. With her three wins this weekend, Rohde-Moe improved to 14-6 on the year. Another highlight for the

in 2012. After that, with the amount of talent he’s bringing in, there’s no telling what Freeze could be asking for and receiving from his team. On the hardwood, the results have always spoken for themselves. Ole Miss has always had basketball on the back burner as far as attention and focus from fans go, and really with the past results, that’s to be expected. Kennedy has yet to take his team to the NCAA Tourna-
ment in six years at the helm. In fact, the Rebels haven’t made it to the big dance since 2001. But this year, it’s been different, at least so far. Senior leadership from Murphy Holloway, Reginald Buckner and Nick Williams, in addition to the energy from junior guard Marshall Henderson, has Ole Miss sitting atop the SEC standings with a 4-0 start in league play and a 15-2 record overall. This may be the best opportunity since Kennedy has been in Oxford to punch the Rebels’ ticket to the NCAA Tournament. There remains a lot of basketball to be played — 14 SEC games actually — but the Rebels couldn’t have asked for a better start. On top of that, the fans have shown up as Tad Smith Coliseum has had two consecutive sellouts. Usually, students and fans are waiting for the days of baseball at Swayze Field to roll around. Not to say there isn’t excitement around head coach Mike Bianco and his program, but
Rebels this weekend was the play of freshman Mai El Kamash who has only been here for two weeks. The Cairo, Egypt native won all three of her matches in straight sets, including two ranked wins. El Kamash wrapped her successful debut with a 6-2, 6-3 win over 75th-ranked Loreto Alonso (USF). In addition to Rohde-Moe and El Kamash, sophomores Erin Stephens and Santa Shumilina won on Sunday as well as freshman Marija Mliutinovic. “It was a great weekend for
us in singles. I was very impressed with our level of play,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We were able to find out a lot about our team and improve from the beginning to the end of the tournament. It also showed that we have a lot of work to do in doubles. We competed hard in doubles and had some opportunities, but we weren’t able to convert. It was a great start to the spring.” The Rebels will continue on the road as they head to Williamsburg, Va., for their dual match opener against William & Mary Tuesday at 5 p.m.
