More than any other game in decades, this Egg Bowl is golden for OM

COLUMN: Saturday’s Egg Bowl is a first for Ole Miss rookie head coach Hugh Freeze: It’s an absolute must-win.

Outside of perhaps the season debut against FCS Central Arkansas, there hasn’t been a single absolute-must-win decreed for the Rebels this entire season, what with the flaming mess that former head coach Houston Nutt left and the lack of available talent and depth headed into this season.

    UGA rout a return to reality for OM Rebs

    COLUMN: ATHENS, Ga. — If Hugh Freeze does end up winning coach of the year honors in the Southeastern Conference, it will be for a “remarkable” turnaround and not a “miraculous” one. (more…) (November 5, 2012, Page 1B)

      Hugh Freeze as SEC Coach of the Year is not so unbelievable

      COLUMN: It’s a splendid month of incredulity around Oxford. Football fans embittered by Houston Nutt’s implosion are still rational enough to know how irrational they’re sounding: Are we really talking about bowl eligibility for the Ole Miss Rebels? (more…) (November 1, 2012, Page 9)

        LSU, Vanderbilt games are must-see television Saturday for Rebel fans

        COLUMN: Bye week? That’s heresy. There’s plenty of football for Ole Miss fans this weekend, specifically two games that any self-respecting Rebel supporter should watch every single snap of. (more…) (October 18, 2012, Page 9)

          Ole Miss fan support at VHS still a winless effort

          COLUMN: The bathrooms on the press box level of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium weren’t functional at halftime of Saturday’s Ole Miss football game against Texas A&M, so I rode the elevator down to the ground floor to use the facilities with 60,000-odd folks braving the unseasonably cold and unfortunately wet night.

            Now it gets interesting: Texas A&M a real measure of the new OM

            COLUMN: At 3-2 through five games, everything’s gone according to the script for Ole Miss, no matter what script you’re working from. Pundits and fans who predicted results as varied as 3-8 to 7-5 had the Rebels losing to national powers Texas and Alabama, and taking care of business against inferior non-conference competition in Central Arkansas, UTEP and Tulane.

              Is going all out at ‘Bama best for Rebels?

              COLUMN: Bo Wallace has a bad shoulder and has been limited in practice this week. The fact he’s Ole Miss’ best and most complete quarterback for head coach Hugh Freeze’s system is reason enough to think that the coaching staff might let him rest a while (or an entire game) to preserve Wallace for the rest of the year.

                UT game shows OM defense will be longer, harder renovation project

                COLUMN: To take nothing away from Hugh Freeze’s innovative signature on the spread passing attack, defenses are what the SEC’s unprecedented run of BCS titles have been built on. On a lesser level, that holds true for almost every successful 9 or 10 win campaign for a conference team. (more…) (September 20, 2012, Page 9)

                  Bo knows how to deal with new-found fame

                  COLUMN: Yes, Bo Wallace was recruited by Texas.

                  And no, he did not visit Austin, Texas. Nor did he receive an offer from the Longhorns.

                  That’s about all that needs to be said about his connection to Ole Miss’ opponent this weekend, according to Wallace. (more…) (September 14, 2012, Page 6A)

                    Rebels have nothing to lose against Texas, which could make them very dangerous

                    COLUMN: No one on the red and blue side of this weekend’s sideshow of a football game is going to admit it’s a mulligan, but in the grand scheme, it is.

                    Ole Miss enters a game with Big 12 power Texas with virtually nothing to lose. The Rebels have matched their win total of 2011 before September 15, and having been tabbed as likely the worst team of 2012 in the SEC before the year started, no one expected — or expects — them to beat the ‘Horns.
