Georgia coach Mark Richt knows offense after having been a college quarterback and offensive coordinator prior to his time in Athens. He has helped produce some of the most prolific offenses in the history of Florida State and done a great job with the Bulldogs, who have had a bevy of standouts head on to the NFL.

If it was up to Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace, every play would be up tempo and not involve a huddle in between. Wallace likes to go at a fast pace and while Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze does too, there is a balancing act both have to deal with each and every game.
Freeze was asked about going slow compared to going fast during a game Monday and his answers on the subject varied based on the team the Rebels were playing each week. (October 31, 2012, Page 6)
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Bryson Rose’s first game-winning field goal of his career couldn’t have come at more opportune time for the Ole Miss Rebels. On a clear, cool Saturday afternoon at War Memorial Stadium, Rose’s 31-yard field goal as time expired lifted the Rebels to a 30-27 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks, their first Southeastern Conference victory on the road in more than three years.
Ole Miss (5-3 overall, 2-2 SEC) trailed Arkansas (3-5, 2-3) 10-0 after the first quarter but stormed back to garner the victory by scoring 21 points in the second and getting three key field goals from Rose in the second half to earn the biggest win over Hugh Freeze’s tenure.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A bowl berth is now one win away for the Ole Miss Rebels and wide receiver Vince Sanders is very aware of that fact. Following the Rebels’ 30-27 win over Arkansas at War Memorial Stadium, Sanders talked about garnering one more victory to make that dream a reality. (October 29, 2012, Page 2B)
Bo Wallace doesn’t need to be matched up against another highly regarded quarterback for him to play better or want to score more points than he usually does. The Ole Miss sophomore, who led East Mississippi Community College to an NJCAA national title slinging the ball all over the place last year, knows that just because his team’s defense faces a huge challenge from Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson Saturday, he can’t suddenly put any more pressure on himself to pace the offense.

Rested and re-focused after the lone break of the season, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze’s focus is to finish the last five weeks as strong as he can.
The Rebels first opportunity to earn a fifth win comes Saturday in Little Rock’s War Memorial Stadium. Arkansas (3-4 overall, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) also had an week off like Ole Miss (4-3, 1-2) this past Saturday. (October 23, 2012, Page 6)
SCOOBA — Mature was a word that continued to come out of the mouth of Nick Brassell following his team’s victory against the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers Thursday night. Brassell, who was a standout wide receiver/defensive back at Ole Miss in his first season out of South Panola, helped lead the No. 3 EMCC Lions past the Rangers on both sides of the ball.

A week after suffering through an emotionally draining loss, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and his Rebels were able to experience an entirely different emotion following a 41-20 win over Auburn at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Saturday afternoon. Freeze, who was second guessed in the Rebels’ 30-27 setback to Texas A&M, showed signs of a water and Gatorade celebration performed in the locker room just minutes before talking about the Rebels’ first Southeastern Conference win in 17 tries.
