Meet The Rebels Day Cancelled

Meet the Rebels Day, an event where Ole Miss Fans can rub shoulders with the Players and Coaches, is CANCELLED this weekend.

The cancellation came in an E-Mail from the school saying it's because of Flu Concerns.

It was to be held Saturday, August, 22nd on the Ole Miss Campus.

In a statement, Athletic Director Pete Boone says after consulting with team physicians, he feels it's in the best interest of the team to cancel the event.

Boone says with Ole Miss First Game against Memphis just 3-weeks away, he doesn't want to take any chances.

The Rebels are Ranked 6th in the Nation Pre-Season by Sports Illustrated.
