Someone on the Ole Miss sideline is a fan of Bassmaster. That’s the only logical conclusion after many B.A.S.S. staff, including Tournament Director and lifelong Alabama fan Trip Weldon, saw the logo for the Bassmaster Opens used on a play card during Saturday’s Ole Miss vs. Alabama game. Much to Trip’s horror, Ole Miss found a way to upset the #1 team in the nation. Trip says his coworker Chris Bowes, who manages the Opens series, may be to blame.
“Looks like B.A.S.S. Senior Tournament manager Chris Bowes was doing double duty Saturday. Weighing day three catches at final Southern Open and play calling in Ole Miss – Bama game.”
In case you were wondering, the play resulted in a nice running gain for the Rebels.
UPDATE: It appears we now know why Ole Miss is using the Opens logo. Check out the latest tweet from Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze:
