NOTEBOOK: Ole Miss being real with Tide’s run defense

Ole Miss’ running game has shown some signs of life recently. The Rebels broke 200 yards on the ground for the first time three weeks ago against Louisiana-Lafayette and followed that up with 178 yards against Memphis last Saturday. Ole Miss has increased its average run to 4 yards after mustering a measly 2.9 through the first two games, a byproduct of some explosive scampers. The Rebels have ripped off runs of 71, 53, 23 and 22 yards in their last two outings. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: OM defense picks up offense with performance

With No. 10 ranked Ole Miss’ offense sputtering for much of the game against Memphis, it was up to the Rebel defense to pick up the slack. They accomplished that and more in the 24-3 victory Saturday night over the upset-minded Tigers. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels finding answers along offensive line

Ole Miss knows four of the offensive linemen who will take the field for the Rebels’ first snap of the season against Boise State Aug. 28. Now the Rebels just need a center. (August 19, 2014, Page 8)

Rebels’ newcomers make good impression

Ole Miss has built enough depth to where it doesn’t need its freshmen to come in and play immediately. The talent, though, of the entire incoming class may leave the coaches with no other choice. (August 5, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels open camp with improved depth, talent

Ole Miss’ football team is switching things up early in fall camp. The Rebels hit the practice field for the first time Saturday morning in preparation for the upcoming season, and for the first time in head coach Hugh Freeze’s tenure, the freshmen and the upperclassmen have spent some time practicing separately thanks to restocked roster. (August 4, 2014, Page 6)
