Shortly after the Ole Miss defense stopped another play for a minimal gain during Monday’s spring practice session, senior end Kentrell Lockett told running back Rodney Scott he knew what play the offense was going to run.
Whether Lockett really meant what he said or not, his message was clear: the Rebel defense can shut down most anything the offense is throwing their way. (April 6, 2010, Page 8)
It’s beginning to sound like a broken record, mainly because it is.

It’s been no surprise that Ole Miss’ most experienced unit, the defensive line, set the tone during the first week of spring drills.

Only four days into spring drills and junior college transfer Wayne Dorsey is already turning heads, and it’s not just because he’s 6-foot-8, 255-pounds — although that helps.

Ole Miss guard Trevor Gaksins got the look he wanted but, unfortunately for the Rebels, his shot didn’t hit the mark.
