Ole Miss moving on, turning attention to Mississippi St.

Saturday’s game was a horror show of sorts for Ole Miss’ football team. The 18th-ranked Rebels found themselves down three scores before the first quarter was over at Arkansas, and things only got worse from there in what eventually turned into a 30-0 loss. It’s Ole Miss’ worst setback in the Hugh Freeze era, it was the Rebels’ third straight loss in the Southeastern Conference, and it ensured that either Mississippi State or Alabama will play either Missouri or Georgia in next month’s SEC title game. (November 24, 2014, Page 6)

Hogs devour sloppy Rebels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The dream is over. The weekend started with Ole Miss still having a chance, however slim it was, to represent the Western Division in next month’s Southeastern Conference Championship Game for the first time ever. But Ole Miss doesn’t have to beat Mississippi State. And forget about the Iron Bowl. None of that matters anymore. Not after No. 8 Ole Miss never gave itself a chance against Arkansas. (November 23, 2014, Page 1B)

LSU grounds, pounds past Ole Miss

BATON ROUGE, La. — Ole Miss didn’t get out of Death Valley alive. The Rebels’ offense was bottled up by LSU, a UM defense that’s been virtually immovable was pushed around, and No. 3 Ole Miss fell from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 10-7 loss Saturday night in front of 102,321 at Tiger Stadium. (October 26, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Freeze ‘very aware’ of Nkemdiche bong photo

Monday morning came with a new week of preparation for No. 3 Ole Miss as the Rebels get ready to welcome the Tennessee Volunteers to town Saturday.  Monday also came with a potentially new distraction for head coach Hugh Freeze and his team as a picture of defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche allegedly smoking marijuana from a bong began to float around the Internet on Sunday night. (October 14, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels aim to win this time against Alabama

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze doesn’t know if his team will put up more points than Alabama on Saturday evening at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. But for the first time in his tenure, there’s a belief that it could actually happen. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss brushing off the hype amid lofty ranking

Ole Miss hasn’t had a number this low next to its name in six seasons. Not that it means a whole lot right now. The Rebels (3-0) came in at No. 12 in this week’s Amway coaches poll and jumped up four spots to No. 10 in The Associated Press top 25, their highest ranking since Jevan Snead and company took a No. 4 ranking to South Carolina on Sept. 24, 2009, only to lose it four quarters later with a 16-10 loss. (September 16, 2014, Page 8)
