Devante Kincade

QBs turn in clean sheet in Ole Miss’ scrimmage

Dan Werner demands three things from his quarterbacks in Ole Miss’ offense: Protect the football, stay ahead of the chains and go fast. Rattling off that checklist and executing it are two different things, but the Rebels’ offensive coordinator liked he what he saw from his signal callers Saturday in a game-like situation. (March 29, 2015, Page 1B)

Ole Miss’ quarterback competition ‘really close’

There’s been little separation this spring among the candidates vying to take over the reins of Ole Miss’ offense from Bo Wallace. And it doesn’t sound like the race to be the Rebels’ next quarterback will end anytime soon. Rising sophomores Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade have been biding their time the last two seasons while junior-to-be Chad Kelly came from the junior college ranks in January to add a third competitor to the mix. (March 27, 2015, Page 1B)

Treadwell working his way back to full speed

Laquon Treadwell has been running routes for the better part of a month. He’s been running around longer than that. The rehabilitation process for Ole Miss’ star wide receiver has been progressing at warp speed since he suffered his gruesome leg injury in the final seconds of the Rebels’ nail-biting loss to Auburn in early November inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (March 26, 2015, Page 6)

Injuries piling up for Ole Miss during ‘physical’ spring

Ole Miss’ football team is hurting. The Rebels are going through their third week of spring practice with many of their first- and second-stringers watching from the sideline. Most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the ball as an offensive line that ended the 2014 season banged up continues to be depleted while the three quarterbacks vying to replace Bo Wallace have limited receivers to target. (March 25, 2015, Page 6)

Rebels’ young quarterbacks on alert with addition of Kelly

Even when Bo Wallace was still in an Ole Miss uniform, the question lingered: Will it be Ryan Buchanan on DeVante Kincade that prevails in the competition to replace the Rebels’ quarterback in 2015? Turns out it may not be either one. Another signal caller is set to enter the mix in East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly, who signed with the Rebels in December and still has his scholarship despite being arrested in the same month. The addition of Kelly blows the race wide open when spring practice starts later today. (March 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Freeze aware of possible ‘embarassment’ with Kelly

It would’ve been easy for Hugh Freeze to give his latest junior college quarterback signee the boot a month ago. Instead, Ole Miss’ coach is giving Chad Kelly yet another chance. Freeze is just hoping it doesn’t come back to bite him. (February 6, 2015, Page 6A)

TCU pummels Rebels in Peach Bowl

ATLANTA — Ole Miss’ performance in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)

Freeze focused on Peach Bowl first, Kelly afterwards

No. 9 Ole Miss made it safe and sound to Atlanta and all Rebels were accounted for and academically eligible, which head coach Hugh Freeze said was “a good thing and we’re progressing nicely there” in his first public appearance in Atlanta. Another hot topic was the status of signee Chad Kelly. (December 28, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss lands commitment from top JUCO QB Kelly

Ole Miss may have found its replacement for Bo Wallace. East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly verbally committed to Ole Miss on Wednesday following a visit to the school. Kelly, the nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, is widely regarded as the nation’s top junior college signal caller. Kelly, who has two seasons of eligibility left, announced his decision on Twitter before confirming it later. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Kelly chose the Rebels over Indiana, Virginia Tech and LSU among others. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

Bo Wallace — one of the best ever in red and blue

Publisher Tim Phillips thinks back to where Ole Miss football was before Bo Wallace came to Oxford and where it is after the Rebels reclaimed the Golden Egg by beating Mississippi State, and makes the case that Wallace is one of the best ever to play quarterback for the Rebels. (December 7, 2014, Page 4A)
