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)

Rebels working to fix woes in running game

After last week’s game against Boise State, the talk has been centered around the lack of a running game and the absence of physicality along the offensive line. It’s also been the topic of practice this week. (September 3, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Healthy Wallace wants to ‘play within the offense’

Bo Wallace is confident in his healthy throwing shoulder. Maybe too confident. Last week’s season opener against Boise State was the Ole Miss senior quarterback’s first chance to display the renewed strength in his arm thanks to a shoulder that’s finally back to 100 percent following a separation suffered during the 2012 season. Wallace admitted it got him into trouble at times. (September 2, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Shepard’s return to field ‘doesn’t look promising’

The update on cornerback Tee Shepard isn’t good for Ole Miss. Shepard, one of the Rebels’ top newcomers, hasn’t practiced since Friday and may end up missing the entire season with a partially torn tendon under his big toe. The sophomore, who had been running with the first team at times during camp, suffered the injury late last week, and the coaching staff is in the process of getting second and third opinions from doctors before deciding what course of action to take. (August 14, 2014, Page 8)

Ole Miss resumes camp with indoor practice

After a day of rest, the Ole Miss football team resumed fall camp with a practice inside the Manning Center Monday. The practice essentially marked the midway point of fall camp, and head coach Hugh Freeze was pleased with what he has seen up to this point as a whole and is hopeful his team can carry that into the season opener against Boise Sate. (August 12, 2014, Page 8)

Jones getting comfortable at corner

This time a year ago, Derrick Jones was preparing to compete for playing time with the rest of Ole Miss’ wide receivers once he arrived in Oxford. Now Jones is busy learning how to cover them. (April 3, 2014, Page 10)

Freeze pleased with scrimmage results

What Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze saw on film from his team’s first spring scrimmage last Saturday was pretty standard. At times, the Rebels looked good. Other times, not so much. (March 25, 2014, Page 8)
