The Ole Miss men’s golf program has gotten to the point where the squad doesn’t get excited when it merely hears “Ole Miss” called over the NCAA Tournament teleconference.
On Monday, the team, gathered at head coach Ernest Ross’ house, listened on as the Rebels were announced as the eight seed in the Virginia Tech Region, played at the Pete Dye River Course at Radford, Va.
There were no overt celebrations or cheers, just a few fist pumps and smiles were all that was needed from the Rebels, who have now made five consecutive tournaments. (May 10, 2011, Page 7)

Following a weekend in which the Rebels were swept by a better team in the Florida Gators, they will turn their sights to Arkansas State tonight and a home series against No. 1 South Carolina this weekend in hopes of changing their fortune.
Prior to Tuesday’s practice, the team wasn’t hiding the fact that it needs to turn things around rather quickly if it wants to make the postseason. (May 4, 2011, Page 8)
The Ole Miss Rebels got men in scoring position, but couldn’t come up with the big hit when they needed to early as Ole Miss dropped the series finale to No. 4 Florida on Sunday by a score of 7-2.
Ole Miss (24-20 overall, 9-12 Southeastern Conference) put men in scoring position in four of the first five innings, but couldn’t get a run home until a Will Allen single in the seventh inning put the Rebels on the board. Matt Smith added a home run in the eighth inning to move into sole possession of second place on the all-time list for home runs at Ole Miss with 41 for his career. (May 2, 2011, Page 4B)
