Five years ago, Josh Lambo was the eighth overall pick in the MLS Super Draft by FC Dallas. Saturday night at Vaught-Hemingway, the Lansing, Mich., native was the hero of No. 9 Texas A&M’s 41-38 win over the Ole Miss Rebels. (October 14, 2013, Page 1B)
On the surface, Ole Miss’ offense was highly productive against Southeast Missouri. How much the offense produced, though, depended greatly on who was under center. (September 9, 2013, Page 1B)
For a half of Saturday’s home opener against Southeast Missouri, the No. 25 Ole Miss Rebels looked like a team that could have easily covered the 52-point spread oddsmakers made them. But for the other half of the Rebels’ 31-13 win in front of a crowd of 60,815 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, they struggled to move the ball and give the same kind of effort they did early with the second- and third-team units in the lineup.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Ole Miss’ 2013 Southeastern Conference season opener against Vanderbilt was won the way head coach Hugh Freeze likes to see his team play: gritty and fast.

For the game to slow down, you must speed up.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has no clue about what is going on with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Current Ole Miss quarterback Barry Brunetti and former Ole Miss player Randall Mackey were arrested in May following an auto accident, according to The Commercial Appeal. (more…) (July 24, 2013, Page 6A)
