Hugh Freeze seemed to feel more like a dentist than he did Ole Miss’ first-year head football coach Tuesday morning. Shortly after his Rebels went through their first practice outside this week and first since a second two-a-day practice session on Monday, Freeze made the comment that Tuesday’s drills felt more like pulling teeth than anything else.

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Ole Miss’ 2011 football season went from bad to worse Saturday afternoon thanks to another second-half letdown that led to a 30-13 win for the Kentucky Wildcats at Commonwealth Stadium.

Ole Miss’ ability to move the ball on the ground helped slow Auburn’s offense, which had gotten off to a 14-0 start, and ultimately propelled the Rebels to a 17-17 tie at the half.
