Hugh Freeze

Bye week will ‘certainly help’ Rebels heal for final stretch

It was tempting, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew he couldn’t. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace entered Saturday’s game against Presbyterian College just 262 yards shy of breaking Eli Manning’s school record for total offense. Wallace accumulated 155 total yards in two quarters, but with Ole Miss holding a 35-0 lead at the break, his day was done. At this point of the season, health trumps statistics. (November 11, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels overwhelm Presbyterian College in rout

No. 12 Ole Miss jumped on its lone Football Championship Subdivision opponent of the season, got its backups a ton of snaps and overwhelmed Presbyterian College for a 48-0 win in front of 60,546 fans clad mostly in red and blue. Ole Miss (8-2 overall) had a handful of starters sitting with injuries, but it didn’t stop the Rebels from turning in gobs of big plays against the overmatched Blue Hose (5-5) and ending a two-game losing streak heading into its second bye week of the season. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Freeze gives glimpse into future at QB position

As was expected, Ole Miss jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime Saturday against Presbyterian College. That large lead meant starting quarterback Bo Wallace’s day was done and it gave the fans a glimpse into what the future could potentially look like at the position as the Rebels went on to complete a 48-0 victory. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

COLUMN: Easy win follows script for OM

That was easy enough. Ole Miss showed no signs of a hangover after a pair of heart-stopping losses that could’ve made it hard for anybody to blame the Rebels if they did come out lethargic against an opponent they were going to beat by however many points they wanted to anyway. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Dodson, Wilkins awaken OM run game

Ole Miss’ running game had been stagnant at best. Saturday against Presbyterian College, it decided to wake up. The Rebels, 48-0 winners in the non-conference game at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, had their best performance on the ground this season with 402 yards. The best effort before Saturday was 214 yards against Louisiana-Lafayette. (November 9, 2014, Page 2B)

Freeze not concerned with scoreboard Saturday

For obvious reasons, it has been a tough week for No. 12 Ole Miss to remain motivated. After five straight weeks of preparing for a Southeastern Conference opponent, the Rebels are spending this week preparing for Saturday’s game against Presbyterian (11 a.m., SEC Network) before entering their final bye week of the season. (November 6, 2014, Page 7A)

Ole Miss drops to No. 11 in latest CFB playoff rankings

After Saturday’s loss to Auburn, its second of the season, Ole Miss’ playoff chances are bleak.  The Rebels (7-2, 4-2 SEC) dropped from No. 4 to No. 11 in the second round of College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night and were the first two-loss team on the board. They were even ranked above one-loss teams Baylor (12), Nebraska (13) and Ohio State (14). (November 5, 2014, Page 1B)

Letters to the Editor

Joanne and Mark Wilkinson write to urge giving all local law enforcement officers at least a 50 percent raise, John Hunter writes to say that Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell deserves to wear Chucky Mullins’ No. 38 jersey next season and Margie Merritt writes to give an Auburn fans perspective after the Ole Miss-Auburn game. (November 5, 2014, Page 4A)

Rebels want to take care of business, then rest

Essentially No. 12 Ole Miss has two bye weeks with Presbyterian coming to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday and its final bye week of the season next weekend. It couldn’t come at a better time after coming out of a stretch of five Southeastern Conference games head coach Hugh Freeze called “murderer’s row.” (November 4, 2014, Page 6)

Ole Miss prepares for life without Treadwell

On Oct. 24, Ole Miss was a top-5 team and very much in control of its destiny regarding the SEC Championship and even the national title conversation.  Two heartbreaking losses to LSU and Auburn later, and the 12th-ranked Rebels are now trying to right the ship in a season that went off course in a matter of eight days. (November 3, 2014, Page 6)
