NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

It is not something easily forgotten by the Rebel defense. In fact, it has been on their minds ever since. (September 12, 2013, Page 9)

DE Thompson hungry for extra reps

Carlos Thompson has the green light to do what most middle-aged American men can only dream of: Eat whatever he wants without consequence.
This past season the former four-star defensive end from Hollandale-Simmons High redshirted in large part because he was deemed as completely underweight for his 6-foot-4 frame. (December 19, 2012, Page 8)
