Ole Miss is Darth Maul

Darth Maul is one of the scariest looking characters in Star Wars. He has that orange skin, those black spikes or bumps or whatever they are on his head, and that really cool dual bladed light saber. But Darth Maul didn’t amount to much. He hardly said a thing in Episode 1, and he was taken down by Obi Wan Kenobi despite the fact that Kenobi broke every Jedi rule by letting his emotions get the best of him and using his rage to defeat Maul after Maul killed Qui-Gon Jinn.

Ole Miss looks really scary with all those great recruiting classes, but are we really going to trust a team that hasn’t won more than 9 games to be a legitimate national championship contender? They have loads of potential, but in the end, they are going to leave a lot of people saying, “Is that it?”
