Ole Miss’ football practice on Tuesday was one dominated by the defense and the rain. Shortly after the punting and place-kicking work was completed, heavy rain and wind forced the action inside. Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt said the offense and defense ran 80 plays and did everything but tackle to the ground.
The Rebel defense, led by players such as defensive end Kentrell Lockett, forced several mistakes by quarterbacks Nathan Stanley, Jeremiah Masoli and Randall Mackey during the practice. (August 18, 2010, Page 8)

For the first time this spring the Ole Miss football Rebels strapped on their pads on Monday for Day 3 of practice.
With the Rebels still getting their feet wet after over two months away from the gridiron, errors weren’t few and far in between. (March 30, 2010, Page 9)
