Rebs hold on to earn rare SEC win

BLOG: It’s been a while since Ole Miss won its last Southeastern Conference football game. Sixteen games to be exact after the Rebels squandered a fourth-quarter lead last weekend against SEC newcomer Texas A&M.

Ole Miss (3-3 overall, 0-2 SEC) will be back at it today, looking for that elusive conference victory, with a homecoming matchup against the reeling Auburn Tigers (1-4, 0-3) at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The game is set for 11:21 a.m. and will be televised on the SEC Network.

MSU’s White claims Conerly Trophy

Two years ago, Chris White was a lightly recruited linebacker who garnered just two scholarship offers from Football Bowl Subdivision programs before deciding to play for Mississippi State.

It’s become pretty obvious the Bulldogs hit the jackpot.

White won the Cellular South Conerly Trophy on Tuesday night, an honor given to Mississippi’s top college football player. The other finalists were Jackson State quarterback Casey Therriault and Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis. (December 1, 2010, Page 7)

Summer of 2010 was event-filled – and hot

Clower story sums up debate over new Ole Miss QB

I am passionate about football. The August heat reminds me of long, hot two-a-day practices. There is nothing like the smell of the field after it has been mowed and freshly painted before the first game. I have always enjoyed the excitement within the community as everyone counts down the days to the first ballgame.

Since I am no longer coaching, I have been able to shift my enthusiasm to Ole Miss football. Needless to say, I have been very interested in all of the media attention surrounding the transfer of the new quarterback. I am never surprised by what commentators, sportswriters and fans say and rarely surprised at what their motivation is

A fan of another SEC school probably thinks Jeremiah Masoli shouldn’t be allowed to walk on at Ole Miss. It might be said that Kirk Herbstreit’s love for Ohio State keeps him from being able to say anything positive about the SEC. A sportswriter may decide that the way to sell an article is to be critical of Houston Nutt and his decision. (August 5, 2010, Page 6)
