Six Ole Miss Rebels signed free-agent deals with NFL teams on Saturday following the 2013 NFL Draft. (more…) (April 29, 2013, Page 1B)

Plenty of good, bad from Rebs’ defense

Through two games Ole Miss has nearly plucked as many interceptions as it did in 12 games a year ago.

After recording just six interceptions last season, the Rebels hijacked four passes from Southern Illinois quarterback Paul McIntosh on Saturday, and have five picks through two games. (September 12, 2011, Page 2B)

Dorsey looking for redemption in 2011

A lot was made of Wayne Dorsey’s arrival in Oxford prior to the 2010 spring semester.

After graduating early from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Dorsey enrolled early in Ole Miss to get a jump start on adapting to life in the Southeastern Conference. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 2B)

Rebel ‘D’ shows up again in drills

For the second straight practice, the Ole Miss defense got the better of the offense in work designed to improve both units under pressure.

Following Ole Miss’ first practice in shoulder pads, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said he was impressed with how his linemen pushed up the field, especially on the ends where four players were credited with getting good pressure on quarterbacks Barry Brunetti, Randall Mackey and Zack Stoudt. (August 9, 2011, Page 6)

Rebels continue to show mixed results

Heading into the second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt wanted to see his team show more consistency on both sides of the ball. His hope was his wide receivers would catch throws from the quarterbacks better, the running game would be even more physical and the defense would do an even better job of flying to the football.

Nutt was able to see his offensive line open more holes for the likes of Enrique Davis and Devin Thomas to gain big chunks of yardage, and while the receivers as a group made some plays, the overall performance was still inconsistent for Nutt’s liking. (April 11, 2011, Page 2B)

Bennett, OM defense has impressed Nutt

One of the main objectives heading into the spring for Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt is to figure out how to improve his team’s defense. (more…) (April 5, 2011, Page 6A)

Rebel seniors reflect on good memories

Saturday evening’s game against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the annual “Egg Bowl” will be the final home contest for 18 Ole Miss seniors. The class, which includes safeties Johnny Brown and Fon Ingram, linebacker Jonathan Cornell, and Oxford native Zach Brent, helped changed the fortune of the program over the past few seasons with back-to-back trips to the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic.

Two of the seniors who will honored before Saturday’s game, defensive tackle Jerrell Powe and defensive end Kentrell Lockett, could return next year, but for the majority of the class, the matchup with the Bulldogs will be the final time the group gets to put on the red and blue together. (November 25, 2010, Page 9A)

Nutt hoping for good news on QB Masoli

The immediate availability of Jeremiah Masoli is still up in the air after the senior quarterback suffered what was called a mild concussion during Saturday’s 43-21 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday.

During Monday’s regularly scheduled press conference, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said he was hoping to get an update on Masoli’s status for this weekend’s game at Tennessee today. (November 9, 2010, Page 8)

Rose shines for Rebels in victory

The value of a reliable kicker was never more evident than on Saturday when Ole Miss kicker Bryson Rose converted all five field goal attempts from distances of 24, 30, 30, 27 and 20 yards in the Rebels’ 43-21 win at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (November 8, 2010, Page 1B)

Rebels shifting players around on defense

Expect to see some changes for the Ole Miss defense in Saturday’s Homecoming game against Louisiana-Lafayette. Defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix said following Wednesday’s practice at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium that D.T. Shackelford, normally a linebacker, will start at defensive end with Gerald Rivers out of action.

Jonathan Cornell, meanwhile, will start at middle linebacker only if he’s healthy enough to go. Right now, Cornell doesn’t appear to be at a point where that would happen and Nix said Mike Marry would make the start there if he is told Cornell can’t go. (November 4, 2010, Page 7)
