Ole Miss has not won an SEC game in over TWO YEARS, beating Kentucky on October 2, 2010.
That's 16 straight SEC losses for the Rebels.
They haven't won an SEC West game since upsetting LSU in November of 2009....20 conference games ago.
Yet, after 16 straight losses in the conference, Vegas has decided the losing streak will likely end this Saturday, courtesy of our Auburn Tigers.
I have run across a second sign of the apocalypse.
Auburn's game against Vanderbilt will be shown on the SEC Network, meaning it didn't make the cut for any of the 764 ESPN time slots. There are some good games that day....LSU @ Texas A&M, South Carolina @ Florida, and Alabama @ Tennessee.
Beyond those games, it has been announced that the remaining two games, Georgia @ Kentucky and Middle Tennessee @ Mississippi State will be shown at 7pm on either ESPN2, ESPNU, or Fox Sports.
That's right....you read that correctly. Auburn @ Vanderbilt was passed over for Middle Tennessee @ Mississippi State. Not Tennessee @ MSU...MIDDLE TENNESSEE @ MSU!

kick 'em in the ass, big blue.
OM wins. 38-7.... The 7 comes from a kick return.
We are much worse of a team than OM right now. To be honest they shouldn't even get excited about beating us either. We could have gotten beaten by Carver this past Sat. And that my fellow board members is a damn shame. And this is all coming from an optimist.
2-10 is not out of the question. Bama a and m is prolly 2 tds better than us right now.
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
From Jay Coulter at Track'em Tigers
Auburn has scored a total of 15 offensive touchdowns during their last 10 conference games and 5 of those came against Ole Miss last season.
Auburn’s opponent has averaged more yards on first down plays (than AU) in 17 of the last 22 games, which includes 10 of the last 11 games.
In only two of Auburn’s last 16 games, have they registered more tackles for loss than their opponent. Their opponent has consistently won the line of scrimmage.
During the 28 conference games under Gene Chizik, Auburn has recorded more tackles for loss than their opponent only 5 times.
In 9 of their last 16 games, Auburn has been shutout during the 4th quarter.
During the past two seasons, Auburn has been outscored in the second quarter, 146 to 67 and 100 to 54 during the 4th quarter.
Auburn is on the cusp of hitting numbers not seen in East Alabama since the 1950’s. Only four other Auburn teams have started the year 1-4; and none of them went on to win more than four games in those seasons.
How can a program sink so fast?
It’s a question being asked in every corner of the state today. There are no easy answers. Simply crediting Cam Newton and Nick Fairley for 2010 is neither fair nor accurate. This staff deserves to be judged for their entire tenure at Auburn.
Gene Chizik deserves credit for 2010 more than anyone else. He also deserves the blame for 2012, which brings us back to now.
While the words “Auburn Defense” and “great” will never be used in the same sentence, Brian VanGorder’s unit is not the reason Auburn sits at the bottom of the SEC.
Chizik’s choice of Scott Loeffler as offensive coordinator may end up being his Waterloo.
