          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.
