OXFORD TOWN – Oxford Town Sports Columnist Steven Godfrey is disgusted. Frankly, we’re all entitled to be a little disappointed but he actually called it last week. He’s got a list of folks who are in need of firing in a bad way after last week’s Rebel home opener bust against BYU. SPOILER ALERT — No one is bulletproof. He’s even got Jack Black included in his list. Check out Page 10 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town to see who else is outta here in Godfrey land. (September 8, 2011, Page 10)
Against the Cougars, Ole Miss’ depth at running back took a significant hit when All-Southeastern Conference senior Brandon Bolden and fellow veteran Enrique Davis went down with leg injuries.
During his weekly press conference Monday, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt addressed both injuries. (September 6, 2011, Page 6)
The line between winning and losing in college football is extremely fine. For the Ole Miss Rebels, a team that was looking to get off to a good start following a disappointing 4-8 season in 2010, Saturday’s season opening 14-13 loss to BYU at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium boiled down to just a few plays that prevented them from earning a much-needed victory.

One area that will need to remain the same if the Rebels are going to improve on their 4-8 season from a year ago, is their rushing attack.
Ole Miss ranked third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing offense, averaging 207.6 yards per game, and returns its top three running backs in All-SEC candidate Brandon Bolden, fellow senior Enrique Davis and sophomore Jeff Scott. (more…) (August 17, 2011, Page 6)

The past four years have been one big learning experience for Ole Miss running back Devin Thomas.
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)
