Ole Miss Sports

JUCO transfer more than just a return man

Ole Miss’ return game has experienced some turnover since the last time the Rebels took the field.

Gone is Jesse Grandy, who transferred to Central Arkansas after averaging 14.7 yards per punt return and 20.9 per kick return as a sophomore. (more…) (August 26, 2011, Page 7A)

    Campbell adding touch to his game

    There’s an art to being an effective punter.

    To paraphrase the famous Nike tag line of the 90s, chicks may dig the long ball, but football coaches dig the ball that’s downed inside the opponents 10-yard line.

    That’s something Ole Miss junior punter Tyler Campbell has been working on this summer.

    Known for his howitzer of a leg — Campbell led the nation in 2010 with an average of 46.37 yards — he spent this summer working on the tactical aspects of punting. (August 25, 2011, Page 6)

      Mackey forces Nutt’s hand in QB competition

      Houston Nutt cut to the point pretty quick following Ole Miss’ football practice on Tuesday.

      Flanked by reporters, the Ole Miss head coach skipped his customary opening statement and announced that Randall Mackey will be suspended for the Rebels’ season opener against BYU on Sept. 3 because of his recent arrest.

      In Mackey’s place, Nutt said sophomore Barry Brunetti will start and junior Zack Stoudt will also see playing time.

      Talking to reporters, it was obvious that Nutt was disappointed Mackey forced his hand in regard to the quarterback competition.

        Nutt suspends Mackey, names Brunetti Game 1 starter

        BLOG: Houston Nutt was not short and to the point after today’s football practice.

        Asked about the status of Randall Mackey, who was recently arrested by the Oxford Police Department and charged with disorderly conduct – failure to comply, Nutt said the former JUCO All-American will be suspended for the season opener against BYU on Sept. 3 and that Barry Brunetti will start.

            Rebels will look to young LBs

            Ole Miss had a pretty standard sales pitch when it was recruiting this year’s freshmen linebackers: Come to Oxford and you’ll have a chance to contribute right away.

            The extent, however, that the Rebels will be relying on the newcomers could be a bit surprising. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

              Denny following family tradition, commits to play baseball at Ole Miss

              Last Saturday Ole Miss baseball coach Mike Bianco made prep pitcher Matt Denny an offer he couldn’t refuse.

              At the conclusion of Denny’s visit to Oxford, Bianco presented the 6-foot-1 left-hander from Jackson Academy with a scholarship offer.

              By the end of the day Denny had verbally committed to the Rebels. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

                OM women netters add blue chipper

                The Ole Miss women’s tennis team is riding high Tuesday with the addition of blue chip recruit Julia Jones. Jones signed an Southeastern Conference Award letter to become a member of the team. Jones, who hails from Seminole, Fla., rose to as high as No. 6 in the nation by TennisRecruiting.net and No. 1 in Florida.

                “The signing of Julia Jones increases the level of this recruiting class,” Ole Miss coach Mark Beyers said.   “This class is going to make an immediate impact, and Julia is among those. She was a highly recruited student-athlete.” (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

                  Dorsey looking for redemption in 2011

                  A lot was made of Wayne Dorsey’s arrival in Oxford prior to the 2010 spring semester.

                  After graduating early from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Dorsey enrolled early in Ole Miss to get a jump start on adapting to life in the Southeastern Conference. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 2B)

                    Rebels have talent, depth at RB

                    It’s probably fair to say Ole Miss fans are hoping for a different 2011 on the gridiron.

                    One area that will need to remain the same if the Rebels are going to improve on their 4-8 season from a year ago, is their rushing attack.

                    Ole Miss ranked third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing offense, averaging 207.6 yards per game, and returns its top three running backs in All-SEC candidate Brandon Bolden, fellow senior Enrique Davis and sophomore Jeff Scott. (more…) (August 17, 2011, Page 6)
