There was a point in time four years ago when Marcus Temple didn’t know if he would see much playing time in Ole Miss’ secondary. Coming from Hargrave (Va.) Military Academy as a walk-on, Temple was the “extra” guy on the roster that would likely help out more on special teams than in the defensive backfield.
That assessment of Temple’s potential contribution to the Rebels was underestimated thanks in large part to his desire to be much more than just a role player. (August 24, 2011, Page 9)

Saturday evening’s game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the annual “Egg Bowl” will be the final home contest for 18 Ole Miss seniors. The class, which includes safeties Johnny Brown and Fon Ingram, linebacker Jonathan Cornell, and Oxford native Zach Brent, helped changed the fortune of the program over the past few seasons with back-to-back trips to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic.
Two of the seniors who will honored before Saturday’s game, defensive tackle Jerrell Powe and defensive end Kentrell Lockett, could return next year, but for the majority of the class, the matchup with the Bulldogs will be the final time the group gets to put on the red and blue together.

Ole Miss’ depth on defense took a hit Tuesday when football coach Houston Nutt suspended cornerback Tony Grimes and end Delvin Jones. The freshmen from South Florida violated team rules by being lax on class attendance and the punishment will be missing the final two games, starting with Saturday’s contest at No. 5 LSU.
