Mathews seeing renewed camaraderie

This summer there has been a lot of emphasis put on coming together as a team for the Ole Miss football squad.

When discussing the pitfalls and woes of last season’s four-win campaign, players bring up a lack of camaraderie and leadership.

That won’t be the case this season, at least if the players have learned from last year. (July 18, 2011, Page 6)

LB Shackelford injured during Monday’s practice

Ole Miss kicked off Grove Bowl Week the same way it had the last two weeks, with a two-plus practice in the Indoor Practice Facility after rains forced the Rebels indoors on Monday.

Head coach Houston Nutt talked about Saturday’s scrimmage after practice, but the biggest news of the day involved junior linebacker D.T. Shackelford, who sustained a knee injury during the practice. An immediate diagnosis was not known right after practice and results from an MRI performed were expected to be released today. (more…) (April 12, 2011, Page 1B)

Rebel seniors reflect on good memories

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. (November 25, 2010, Page 9A)

Nutt suspends two Rebels on Tuesday

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. (November 17, 2010, Page 6)

OM’s Nutt gives impassioned speech about team, program

Ole Miss’ struggles on the gridiron this season have not been taken lightly by the players and coaching staff.

Why is that blatantly clear?

Well, in part because of  head coach Houston Nutt’s opening statement that kicked off his weekly press conference on Monday.
During his nine-minute speech, Nutt focused on the state of the program over the last 50 years and where he thought it was headed. (November 16, 2010, Page 4B)

Bolden continues to run well for Rebels

There were no bright spots to talk about for the Ole Miss offense in Saturday’s 52-14 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium with the exception of the running of junior Brandon Bolden.

Bolden carried the ball 12 times for 113 yards and scored both of the team’s touchdowns in a game that was essentially decided by the start of the third quarter.

The two scores for Bolden raised his season total to 11 on the year and 20 in his career, while his rushing effort gave him five games of over 100 yards. (November 15, 2010, Page 2B)

Penalties, Richardson do in Rebs

Ole Miss proved to be a hospitable guest Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Critical penalties, a slow first half and a busted tackle on Trent Richardson’s 85-yard touchdown reception proved to be too much on Saturday as the Ole Miss Rebels fell at No. 8 Alabama 23-10.

By the end of the game, the Rebels, who entered the game as the Southeastern Conference’s least-penalized team, committed 10 penalties for 106 yards. (October 18, 2010, Page 1B)
