Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Mathers returns to Rebels’ backfield

Ole Miss’ ground game is back at full strength. Junior running back I’Tavius Mathers suffered a sprained big toe that knocked him out of the Rebels’ last game against Louisiana-Lafayette shortly after ripping off his 56-yard touchdown run, an injury Hugh Freeze feared was serious enough to possibly keep him out of this week’s game against Memphis at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 23, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss RB Wilkins returns to practice

Ole Miss has one of its running backs back. It’s waiting on another. I’Tavius Mathers and Jordan Wilkins were both knocked out of the Rebels’ rout of Louisiana-Lafayette early with injuries. Mathers sprained a big toe while Wilkins suffered a sprained ankle and took a hit to the knee that required an MRI to determine the severity. But results showed nothing more than a mild sprain of Wilkins’ MCL, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said, and Wilkins was back at practice on Wednesday. (September 18, 2014, Page 8)

Rebels looking for physical edge on the ground

Rebels’ RB depth creates plenty of competition

Ole Miss’ running back room has a different look to it this year. That’s a good thing for the Rebels. (August 14, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: ‘Everyone’s eligible’ for Rebels

Some of Ole Miss’ football players won’t play a down this season, but it won’t be because they didn’t make the grades. For the first time in his three-year tenure, coach Hugh Freeze announced the Rebels won’t suffer from an academic casualty. Players reported to campus on Friday — the first day before the start of fall camp — and everyone’s ready to go. (August 4, 2014, Page 6)
