Ole Miss’ annual Grove Bowl game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday was more about defining roles and the team moving forward into summer drills with some defined leaders taking charge. (more…) (April 18, 2011, Page 4B)
Football practice has become more enjoyable for Ole Miss sophomore wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan this spring. A year after the 6-foot-2 Natchez native got his feet wet playing in a reserve role at wide receiver, Logan has become one of the two main leaders for a group that is currently short on overall experience.

There was the good: Randall Mackey showed consistency passing the ball, the defense provided a constant presence in the offensive backfield, the tight ends looked like reliable targets, head coach Houston Nutt said he liked the attitudes he saw from the defense and incumbent kicker Bryson Rose connected on all four field goals from 40 yards and beyond.

Two weeks after turnovers and general miscues cost Ole Miss in its Southeastern Conference opener against Vanderbilt, it was turnovers by Kentucky that ultimately propelled the Rebels past the Wildcats on Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Three turnovers by UK directly led to 21 points for Ole Miss and proved to be the deciding factor in a 42-35 win in front of a crowd of 55,344 and a regional television audience. Instead of seeing another team return an interception for a score or scoop a fumble up deep in their own territory, it was the Rebels (3-2 overall, 1-1 in the SEC) who played the part of ungracious hosts to the Wildcats (3-2, 0-2).

Missed assignments, general miscues and turnovers continued to plague the Ole Miss Rebels at the most important times of their 28-14 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
The Rebels (1-2 overall, 0-1 in the Southeastern Conference) lost their second home game of the season by playing unsound football at the most critical times of the game. Instead of jumping out to an early lead in the first quarter on a wide-open pass play, the Rebels, and more specifically tight end Ferbia Allen, found a way to let the opportunity drop through their fingers.
Two days have now past since Jacksonville State’s monumental upset of the Ole Miss Rebels. For Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt, the time in between the loss and the start of work for Saturday’s opponent, Tulane, couldn’t have been more relevant as he and his staff try to get the Rebels headed back in the right direction.
Nutt said that Sunday’s practice and film work that preceded the practice was very quiet. (September 7, 2010, Page 6)
The shock on Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt’s face following Saturday’s loss to Jacksonville State was as apparent as the 49-48 score posted on the Jumbotron at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium following the second overtime period.
The Rebels, a team that was riding a wave of positive emotion after Friday’s announcement that quarterback Jeremiah Masoli would be allowed to play this season, have suddenly gone from a team that some thought would win eight or nine games to one that some think may finish below .500.
Losses in the season opener always hurt, but a loss to a lower division team coached by Nutt’s former employer hurt even more, especially when the Rebels led 31-13 after the third quarter and had their chances to stop the Gamecocks in both the late stages of regulation and overtime.
