Rebels looking to get healthy in off week

Ole Miss has made it through the first three weeks of the season unscathed, beginning a campaign 3-0 for the first time since 1989. Now it’s time for the Rebels to clean up the mistakes, break any obvious repetitions and get healthy for an upcoming schedule that head coach Hugh Freeze called “probably the toughest stretch of games that anyone will have to play this year.” (September 17, 2013, Page 6)

NOTES: Offensive production depends on QB

On the surface, Ole Miss’ offense was highly productive against Southeast Missouri. How much the offense produced, though, depended greatly on who was under center. (September 9, 2013, Page 1B)

Before recruiting, don’t forget to celebrate overachieving D

Things were so good, it almost wasn’t fair to everybody: Before Ole Miss could escape the cold drizzle of the January rain in Birmingham after a never-in-doubt win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl, fans and media were clamoring about the coming recruiting class, which depending on your optimism and news sources, could be one of the best in school history.

Grenada’s Bledsoe paying attention to Rebels’ class
