COLUMN: Drama far from over with Ole Miss recruiting like this

Another year, and another consensus top-25 recruiting class seems to be lining up for Ole Miss. But it’s going to be another wild ride to Wednesday’s finish line. Hugh Freeze and his staff have traveled near and far for the last year — and then some — and they’ve had some of the country’s top recruits come to them. They’ve sold the program.

          Ole Miss looks to start fast at Mizzou

          Ole Miss has won its last two games, but the Rebels have had to exert a lot of energy to do so. The Rebels (13-7, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) will try to make it three straight wins with a trip to Missouri this Saturday (3 p.m., FSN).
