Prep standout takes offer he can’t refuse

While Ole Miss’ Gridiron Rebels were busy making headlines last week with their strong in-state signing class, the Diamond Rebels quietly added a verbal commitment from Madison Central left-handed pitcher Zach Irwin.

Although Irwin’s step parents are Mississippi State supporters, the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder said Ole Miss recruiting coordinator Carl Lafferty made him an offer he couldn’t refuse and as a result, he decided to give his verbal commitment to the Rebels last Friday.

Because baseball teams are allotted just 11.7 scholarships to distribute amongst 27 players on a 35-man roster — each of the 27 scholarship players must have at least .25 percent of a scholarship — the amount in which a recruit is offered is a big deal, unlike in sports like football and basketball where student athletes are awarded full scholarships. (February 8, 2011, Page 1B)

    More than just playing for fun

    COLUMN: Fans in attendance of Saturday’s 7-0 win for the current Rebel squad over the alumni team got a glimpse at what the backbone of Ole Miss’ pitching staff will likely resemble when the season opens on Feb. 18 against Wright State.

      Warren’s second half leads Rebs past Hogs

      Andy Kennedy knows there’s nothing Ole Miss can do about its four-game losing streak to open Southeastern Conference play.

      The Ole Miss coach knows it happened. It’s not going away.

      While the Rebels can’t change the past, they continued to try and climb out of the early hole with a 69-60 win over Arkansas on Saturday night. Chris Warren, the hero of a last-second win over Kentucky earlier in the week, scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half as the Rebels (15-8, 3-5) pulled away for their third win in four games since the dismal conference start. (February 7, 2011, Page 1B)

        Raining 3s: LSU cruises past Lady Rebs

        Any inability to stop the long-range 3 point shot — in combination to score consistently — led to a lopsided 76-38 loss at the C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum on Sunday for the Ole Miss women against former OM head coach Van Chancellor’s LSU Lady Tigers.

        The Lady Tigers (16-9 overall, 6-5 Southeastern Conference) held a 42-26 lead at halftime and never trailed. (February 7, 2011, Page 3B)
