Moore ends NWCC’s playoffs early

One of the most successful seasons for the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers and head coach Ricky Woods came to an unfortunate end Saturday in the first round of the MACJC state football playoffs.

No. 12 Gulf Coast, led by the passing of former Ole Miss walk-on quarterback Clayton Moore, defeated the No. 4 Rangers 52-24 in front of a crowd of 1,452 fans at Bobby Franklin Field. The Bulldogs (8-2 overall), who will now square off against Copiah-Lincoln for the MACJC state title next week, scored early and often against the Rangers (9-1), who entered the game with just four defensive linemen to try and stop one of the best offenses in all of  the junior college ranks. (November 8, 2010, Page 5B)

            It will be interesting to see how long Valencia McFarland remains all smiles.

            If all goes as head coach Renee Ladner hopes it will, her star freshman guard’s smile won’t wear off any time soon.

            During a media opportunity on Wednesday, both Ladner and senior Kayla Melson said they’re curious to see how this young Lady Rebels squad meshes for the first time when they play West Georgia in an exhibition game tonight at 7 at the C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum. (November 4, 2010, Page 7)

              Rebels shifting players around on defense

              Expect to see some changes for the Ole Miss defense in Saturday’s Homecoming game against Louisiana-Lafayette. Defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix said following Wednesday’s practice at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium that D.T. Shackelford, normally a linebacker, will start at defensive end with Gerald Rivers out of action.

              Jonathan Cornell, meanwhile, will start at middle linebacker only if he’s healthy enough to go. Right now, Cornell doesn’t appear to be at a point where that would happen and Nix said Mike Marry would make the start there if he is told Cornell can’t go. (November 4, 2010, Page 7)

                Nutt looking for another Novermber to remember

                Ole Miss begins its final month of the regular season Saturday with its annual Homecoming game. The Rebels need to win three of the final four games to gain bowl eligibility, a tough task for any team let alone one that has struggled with its consistency and has yet to play a complete game.

                Rebel coach Houston Nutt talked about where his team was heading into the final month during his weekly press conference Monday. (November 2, 2010, Page 8)

                  Tigers put on offensive clinic in win

                  Twenty-seven seconds into Saturday’s game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt’s desire for his Rebels to upset the No. 1 team in the BCS Standings, the Auburn Tigers, looked pretty good.

                  Freshman running back Jeff Scott had just reeled off an 83-yard run down the Ole Miss sideline for a touchdown at that point and the fifth-largest crowd in stadium history of 61,474 was roaring with approval.

                  But just as quickly as Rebel fans could get into their “Yell O” rhythm on defense, Auburn was moving right back down the field to score the first of six touchdowns in an eventual 51-31 win.

                  Led by super-standout quarterback Cam Newton, the Tigers shredded the Rebels for 71 yards on six plays that first drive. Newton completed three straight passes to get across the 50-yard line, while running back Onterio McCalebb’s 15-yard run got the Tigers into the red zone.

                  Auburn coach Gene Chizik and offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn then sent a message to the Rebels about how the game would eventually play out as they sent Newton out wide to catch his first touchdown of the season. (November 1, 2010, Page 1B)

                    Auburn’s Newton takes his game to a new level

                    Just how good is Auburn quarterback Cam Newton? That was the question that Ole Miss defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix attempted to answer prior to the Rebels’ game with the No. 3 Tigers at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

                    The plan heading into the contest was to stop Newton from running, from beating the Rebels with his legs like he has so many other teams this year.

                    Nix’s plan worked as the Rebels held Newton to 45 yards on 11 carries and no touchdowns. But Newton was effective in a lot of other ways for the Tigers, who piled up 51 points and 572 yards, both season highs allowed for the Rebels. (November 1, 2010, Page 1B)
