Crowe can’t downplay magnitude of upset

Under the empty stands of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday, Jack Crowe tried to downplay what his team had just accomplished. The Gamecocks had done what was virtually unthinkable prior to the game and defeat ed the Ole Miss Rebels 49-48 in double overtime.

During his postgame press conference, Crowe spoke of how much respect he has for Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt, how they “probably took advantage” of an Ole Miss team searching for itself and how he’d be surprised if the Rebels were not “in the running for the (SEC) West.”

“I think there were some circumstances that we probably couldn’t probably repeat in 100 years if we tried to do it again,” he said.

But it is hard to downplay what actually occurred during an otherwise pleasant day in Oxford.

If nothing else, Crowe’s hat — or absence of one — said it all. (September 6, 2010, Page 2B)

    Commit Bell not swayed after Gamecocks’ upset

    Two weeks ago Callaway offensive lineman Justin Bell gave his verbal commitment to Ole Miss and said he looked forward to attending his first game on Saturday.

    On Sunday, Bell said he wasn’t swayed by Jacksonville’s 49-48 upset of Ole Miss. (September 6, 2010, Page 2B)

      Jennings’ late strike sinks Devils

      The Water Valley defense did it’s best on Friday night to come away from Calhoun City’s “Boneyard” with a victory, holding a prolific offense that had averaged 47.5 points to just 10 points.

      It wasn’t enough in the end, however, as the Wildcats were able to score a go-ahead touchdown late in the third quarter and hold on for a 10-7 victory.

      “The simple answer to the night is we just have to get better on offense,” WVHS coach Brad Embry said. “That’s all I told the kids. It was a great effort, a championship effort against a championship-caliber team, but offensively we have to get better. That’s on me, I know that, and we will (get better).” (September 6, 2010, Page 4B)

              Harris gets his shot to start

              It’s hard to hide a 6-foot-7 frame on the football field. It’s that kind of height that makes coaches drool.

              But for the past two seasons, Ole Miss receiver Melvin Harris remained hidden — whether because of depth at the position or an inability to “put it all together” — at the end of the Rebels’ sideline waiting for mopup duty.

              At some point during the offseason the Buford, Ga., native finally began to put it all together and on Saturday the redshirt sophomore will make his first career start when the Rebels host Jacksonville State at 2:30 p.m.

              For Harris, finally getting his shot against the opposition’s best has been a long time coming. (September 3, 2010, Page 10A)

                  Devils look to stop ‘Cats

                  The Wildcat formation has been a re-occurring trend across the country in not only college football, but also at the high school level.

                  In Calhoun City, they’ve been running the Wildcat for years — his name is J.R. Jennings.
                  The senior is a do-it-all quarterback for the Wildcats that can burn teams in any number of ways. (September 2, 2010, Page 6)

                    What you’ll find in today’s EAGLE, plus one man’s prep poll

                    The last 24 hours have been quite busy for the Ole Miss football program. Instead of focusing solely on the season-opener against Jacksonville State, the Rebels were dealt the news yesterday that quarterback transfer Jeremiah Masoli’s waiver was denied by the NCAA. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Rebels will also be without senior defensive end Kentrell Lockett in the season opener because of a heart issue. (more…) (September 1, 2010)
