Houston Nutt

Houston Nutt is the head football coach for the Ole Miss Rebels. The Arkansas native graduated from Oklahoma State, where he played quarterback, after transferring from Arkansas.

Rebels turn focus to No. 2 Alabama

Houston Nutt’s weekly press conference on Monday wasn’t so much about his Ole Miss Rebels as it was about Alabama, and more specifically the Crimson Tide’s strangling defense that has surrendered just 42 points this season.

Fresh off of their lone bye week of the season, Ole Miss must now focus on the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0 overall, 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference). (more…) (October 11, 2011, Page 6)

Rebels looking to heal, improve during bye week

Monday’s weekly press conference at the Indoor Practice Facility was a little different than normal.

Fresh off of a 38-28 victory at Fresno State, and facing the team’s lone bye week on the schedule, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt focused on getting healthier this week and building on the win moving forward. (October 4, 2011, Page 6)

Big plays lifts Ole Miss past Fresno State

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A change at quarterback proved to be just what Ole Miss needed to spark its dormant offense.

Randall Mackey delivered the big plays all night on offense and Jeff Scott ran for 138 yards and two second-half touchdowns to lead the Rebels to a 38-28 victory against Fresno State on Saturday night. (more…) (October 3, 2011, Page 1B)

Are we seeing the effects of a curse on the Rebels?

There’s the Curse of the Bambino, the Curse of the Goat, the Sports Illustrated jinx, et cetera? Is there a Curse of the Rebels or something akin to that to add to the list. Editor Don Whitten’s not so sure, but he still examines the situation while taking a look at other “curses.” (September 28, 2011, Page 4)

Rebels get tricky in loss

Ole Miss pulled out all of the stops on Saturday against the Georgia Bulldogs and successfully executed all three trick plays.

Unfortunately for the Rebels, the game was won on more than a trick pass, an onside kick and a nifty reverse on a punt return. (more…) (September 26, 2011, Page 1B)

Former OM recruit excited to play in Oxford

One former Rebel recruit will get a chance to play at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium after all.

On Saturday, Marlon Brown will jog out of the visitor’s tunnel and on to Jerry Hollingsworth Field as a member of the Georgia Bulldogs.

As a four-star receiver at Harding Academy in Memphis, Brown was considered the state’s top recruit for the 2009 signing class and when it came down to choosing where he’d play college ball, Brown selected Georgia over other finalists Ohio State, Tennessee and Ole Miss. (September 23, 2011, Page 6A)

Nutt fields questions about his future, team

Monday’s rain shower in Oxford seemed appropriate considering the current state of the Ole Miss football program.

Coming off of a 30-7 loss at Vanderbilt and another forgettable start to the football season, the questions during Houston Nutt’s weekly press conference at the Indoor Practice Facility blended what went wrong against the Commodores with what can be done to rectify mistakes moving forward.

Loss to Vandy one for the record books

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt is never a doormat for Ole Miss, but Saturday’s 30-7 “upset” was still a record breaker. Entering Saturday’s game most Rebel fans were aware of the anomalous stat that Vanderbilt had won four of the last six meetings between the teams.

Between the disastrous Ed Orgeron era and Houston Nutt’s troubles with the ‘Dores, it’s clear momentum has shifted to Vanderbilt in the last decade. (more…) (September 19, 2011, Page 2B)
