Players, staff hurting after loss to A&M

COLUMN: Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace used the word “crushed” describe the way his teammates felt in the dressing room after Saturday night’s 30-27 loss to Texas A&M.
Hugh Freeze, the leader of the Rebels, said he was “very disappointed” with the come-from-behind win for the Aggies and that the “kids and coaches were hurting” from the outcome. (more…) (October 8, 2012, Page 1B)

    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.

        Are Rebs ready for SEC play?

        COLUMN: NEW ORLEANS — After a 3-1 start to the 2012 season, and non-conference play out of the way, the big question asked to the Ole Miss Rebels and coach Hugh Freeze was “are you ready for SEC play?”

        It was a simple question that actually produced several different answers. Sophomore defensive end C.J. Johnson, who had just helped the Rebels earn their first shutout since 2008, believes the team could play with anybody, even if the next opponent is No. 1 Alabama.

          OTS Eagles reunite to talk about greatness

          COLUMN: Members of one of the most successful high school programs to ever play in the area will be re-united this weekend. (more…) (September 21, 2012, Page 6A)

            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)

              Rebels plan to stick together, move forward

              COLUMN: Less than a week after talking about what a win against No. 14 Texas would do for the Ole Miss program, freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche was focused on staying together as a team. (more…) (September 17, 2012, Page 1B)

                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.

                    When losses come in 2012 remember Freeze has already won

                    COLUMN: Ah, yes: the reliable feeling of dread.

                    That unmistakable harbinger of doom sneakily tagging along as that creepy, uninvited plus-one when Ole Miss football arrives at our door each year. (more…) (August 30, 2012, Page 9)
