NOTEBOOK: OM defense picks up offense with performance

With No. 10 ranked Ole Miss’ offense sputtering for much of the game against Memphis, it was up to the Rebel defense to pick up the slack. They accomplished that and more in the 24-3 victory Saturday night over the upset-minded Tigers. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

COLUMN: Ole Miss defense passes eye test

ATLANTA- You had a good idea, but until you see it live, you just don’t really know. Ole Miss’ defense was the talk of fall camp. Another crop of newcomers along with some key transfers had made the unit as deep as it’s been in the last three years, and those recruiting classes had brought some top-flight talent to that side of the ball. (August 29, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss begins final prep for Broncos

The Ole Miss football team started game week with an indoor practice Monday night. It was a light workout as the players didn’t use shoulder pads. With fall camp over and the Rebels turning their focus toward Boise State, one this is certain: they are ready to put the pads on and hit someone other than themselves. (August 26, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)

Rebels’ newcomers make good impression

Ole Miss has built enough depth to where it doesn’t need its freshmen to come in and play immediately. The talent, though, of the entire incoming class may leave the coaches with no other choice. (August 5, 2014, Page 6)
