Talk about taking a hit..
The Ole Miss Rebels drop a startling 17-spots in the poll after Thursday's loss at South Carolina..
Ole Miss went into Columbia ranked 4th in the Nation in the A.P.
They limped home to Oxford knocked all the way down to 21st after the 16-to-10 defeat.
Rebels Coach Houston Nutt says while his Rebels didn't Handle the High Ranking Well..he had nothing do to with putting them up there.
At his news conference Monday, Nutt said.."Deep down i didn't think we were the 4th best team in the country.. i didn't think we were quite there yet.. But, now i'm not going to tell you that. After all, it was you (media) that put us up there that high.. I'm not going to argue! But, you know, now we will go back and see what happened to us.. correct it in practice and get ready to come back even stronger."
The Rebels play at Vanderbilt Saturday in Nashville.
