Morgan gives Rebs reason to celebrate

COLUMN: It was quite a sight to watch from the press box at Oxford-University Stadium.

For a team that quite frankly hasn’t had a lot to get excited about this season, taking the series from a South Carolina squad that hasn’t lost one since the end of last season was a big deal. (more…) (May 9, 2011, Page 4B)

    Mackey making the case to be No. 1 QB

    COLUMN: Randall Mackey bounced around the turf of Jerry Hollingsworth Field on Saturday, smiling and joking with teammates and friends alike under a clear Mississippi sky at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium — and rightfully so. (more…) (April 4, 2011, Page 6A)

      Don’t forget your raincoat

      COLUMN: My family was invited to a friend’s house for supper one night. She told us that poppy seed chicken was on the menu. A few minutes later she called back and asked if we had any butter. The phone rang again and she asked if we had any poppy seeds. I laughed and told her I believed all she had was some chicken and an idea. It’s funny how something seems like a good idea before you consider the necessary preparations. (more…) (April 1, 2011, Page 8A)

        Catching fish all about keeping things simple

        COLUMN: I may have been in high school, grad school, or perhaps a coach’s clinic the first time I heard the principle Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS). After hearing the KISS principle many times, I realized that it is a great concept but keeping it simple is hard to do for some people. When I would hear the acronym used, I remember thinking, “I got this. I was raised by Chester B. Drewrey from Denmark.” (more…) (March 17, 2011, Page 7)

          There needs to be etiquette in fishing

          COLUMN: Jerry Holt and I were coaching together at Water Valley and he invited me to go crappie fishing with him. He was an experienced jig fisherman. I had crappie fished before but never with a jig pole. (more…) (March 3, 2011, Page 7)

            Lady Rebels need someone to step up

            COLUMN: It has sort of been the Ole Miss women’s basketball team’s “thing” this season to get behind early, then make a late run to make games interesting. (more…) (February 11, 2011, Page 6A)

              More than just playing for fun

              COLUMN: Fans in attendance of Saturday’s 7-0 win for the current Rebel squad over the alumni team got a glimpse at what the backbone of Ole Miss’ pitching staff will likely resemble when the season opens on Feb. 18 against Wright State.

              Against the professional Rebel squad — which, admittedly, for the most part had not faced live pitching in over four months — Ole Miss’ three likely weekend starters and closer allowed just two hits during nine innings of work. (more…) (February 7, 2011, Page 2B)

                Surprising Series gets underway tonight

                Phillies and Yankees, no doubt. That was the consensus for most of the season, but now we have a surprising matchup in the World Series: San Francisco and Texas. Assistant News Editor Jeff Eubanks takes a look at the 2010 season and how the Giants and Rangers made it to the Fall Classic. (October 27, 2010, Page 4)
