Bjork, Freeze chime in on Elston suspension

Ole Miss freshman rover Trae Elston walked by reporters after Tuesday’s practice, unavailable to comment about his one-game suspension levied by the Southeastern Conference for a “flagrant and dangerous” hit he made on UTEP wideout Jordan Leslie last Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

In Elston’s place to discuss the suspension, which was announced by the SEC on Tuesday morning, was head coach Hugh Freeze and athletics director Ross Bjork.

Bjork was the first to address the media, while Freeze gave more details on the suspension, including his thoughts when he was first told on Monday night. (September 12, 2012, Page 6)

Better effort can’t save Rebels in loss

The effort was there Saturday for the Ole Miss Rebels compared to their Week 3 performance against Vanderbilt. Unfortunately for them and coach Houston Nutt, the results of that improved effort weren’t enough to produce a win.

Ole Miss fell to 0-2 in the Southeastern Conference thanks to a 27-13 setback at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs. What the crowd of 58,042 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, and a regional audience watching on the SEC Network, saw was a young Ole Miss team show more fight than it did against the Commodores, but come up short on the scoreboard because of the same miscues that have haunted them all year.

Nutt, Lee see improvement from QBs

“Better” was a word used by both Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt and offensive coordinator David Lee to describe how Wednesday’s practice session went for quarterbacks Barry Brunetti and Zack Stoudt.

Brunetti, who will be the starter for the BYU game, cut down on the mistakes he made on Tuesday in the Rebels’ most recent practice, Lee said. (August 25, 2011, Page 6)

Mathews seeing renewed camaraderie

This summer there has been a lot of emphasis put on coming together as a team for the Ole Miss football squad.

When discussing the pitfalls and woes of last season’s four-win campaign, players bring up a lack of camaraderie and leadership.

That won’t be the case this season, at least if the players have learned from last year. (July 18, 2011, Page 6)

Nutt suspends two Rebels on Tuesday

Ole Miss’ depth on defense took a hit Tuesday when football coach Houston Nutt suspended cornerback Tony Grimes and end Delvin Jones. The freshmen from South Florida violated team rules by being lax on class attendance and the punishment will be missing the final two games, starting with Saturday’s contest at No. 5 LSU. (November 17, 2010, Page 6)

Nutt says team needs to make more plays

Sunday was a day of heavy evaluation for Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt and his staff. Besides getting back to the practice field to correct things physically, Nutt was able to talk about Saturday’s 49-48 loss to Jacksonville State in double overtime a little better after watching the tape.

“I thought we played a very good first half of football. The second half of the third quarter and fourth quarter was not good. We’ve got to be better, we’ve got to be better with our eyes, assignments, tackling, the whole bit,” Nutt said. “We did not play well, we didn’t make plays on the ball and along with that you can’t turn the ball over. We felt the momentum slipping away as the game went into the fourth quarter and we had a real lull offensively as well. We had some turnovers at critical times that really hurt us.” (September 6, 2010, Page 3B)
