Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Mathers returns to Rebels’ backfield

Ole Miss’ ground game is back at full strength. Junior running back I’Tavius Mathers suffered a sprained big toe that knocked him out of the Rebels’ last game against Louisiana-Lafayette shortly after ripping off his 56-yard touchdown run, an injury Hugh Freeze feared was serious enough to possibly keep him out of this week’s game against Memphis at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 23, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss brushing off the hype amid lofty ranking

Ole Miss hasn’t had a number this low next to its name in six seasons. Not that it means a whole lot right now. The Rebels (3-0) came in at No. 12 in this week’s Amway coaches poll and jumped up four spots to No. 10 in The Associated Press top 25, their highest ranking since Jevan Snead and company took a No. 4 ranking to South Carolina on Sept. 24, 2009, only to lose it four quarters later with a 16-10 loss. (September 16, 2014, Page 8)

Ole Miss NOTEBOOK: LBs Nkemdiche, Bryant productive in returns

NASHVILLE, Tenn.— The Ole Miss defense was back at full strength for the first time this season as it got two important pieces back in Saturday’s 41-3 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores. (September 7, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels rebound from mistakes

ATLANTA- Mistakes were a plenty for Ole Miss in their 35-13 season-opening win over Boise State at the Georgia Dome Thursday night. They came in the form of interceptions, turnovers and penalties. Throw in a poor running game and the Rebels couldn’t get out of their own way for most of the game. (August 29, 2014, Page 2B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels finding answers along offensive line

Ole Miss knows four of the offensive linemen who will take the field for the Rebels’ first snap of the season against Boise State Aug. 28. Now the Rebels just need a center. (August 19, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Shepard’s return to field ‘doesn’t look promising’

The update on cornerback Tee Shepard isn’t good for Ole Miss. Shepard, one of the Rebels’ top newcomers, hasn’t practiced since Friday and may end up missing the entire season with a partially torn tendon under his big toe. The sophomore, who had been running with the first team at times during camp, suffered the injury late last week, and the coaching staff is in the process of getting second and third opinions from doctors before deciding what course of action to take. (August 14, 2014, Page 8)

Rebels open camp with improved depth, talent

Ole Miss’ football team is switching things up early in fall camp. The Rebels hit the practice field for the first time Saturday morning in preparation for the upcoming season, and for the first time in head coach Hugh Freeze’s tenure, the freshmen and the upperclassmen have spent some time practicing separately thanks to restocked roster. (August 4, 2014, Page 6)
