The past four years have been one big learning experience for Ole Miss running back Devin Thomas.
Heading into the second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt wanted to see his team show more consistency on both sides of the ball. His hope was his wide receivers would catch throws from the quarterbacks better, the running game would be even more physical and the defense would do an even better job of flying to the football.
Nutt was able to see his offensive line open more holes for the likes of Enrique Davis and Devin Thomas to gain big chunks of yardage, and while the receivers as a group made some plays, the overall performance was still inconsistent for Nutt’s liking. (April 11, 2011, Page 2B)

A season that got off to a bad start and never got on track finally came to an end for the Ole Miss Rebels in the form of a 31-23 loss to the No. 25 Mississippi State Bulldogs Saturday night in front of a crowd of 58,625 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Despite a desire to make amends for last season’s loss to the Bulldogs, the Rebels were thoroughly outplayed again by the visitors from Starkville.
Ole Miss (4-8 overall, 1-7 in the Southeastern Conference) gave up 498 yards to the Bulldogs (8-4, 4-4) in the loss and made several key gaffes on offense that prevented them from ending the season on a high note. (November 29, 2010, Page 1B)
