Ole Miss receivers draw mixed reviews in spring

What kind of spring have Ole Miss’ wide receivers had? A former defensive back has been the best of the group. That’s the word from head coach Hugh Freeze, whose wideouts have struggled to string together consistency the last five weeks. There’s no shortage of targets for quarterbacks Ryan Buchanan, DeVante Kincade and Chad Kelly to throw to even with Laquon Treadwell out, but even the simplest passes aren’t always resulting in completions. (April 10, 2015, Page 6A)

Back at WR, Jones a wild card for Rebels’ offense

Derrick Jones is brimming with talent. It’s why Ole Miss’ coaches are determined to get him on the field. And they’ve decided once and for all that his best chance for that to happen is at wide receiver. (April 8, 2015, Page 3B)

Depth breeding spring competition for Ole Miss

Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze likes the numbers he sees when he looks around the practice field. Three full recruiting classes for Freeze and his staff have the Rebels’ roster stocked with the most quality players they’ve had since arriving in Oxford four Decembers ago. The starters at each position — at least the ones that have locked up that distinction — jog off the field after a few reps and are replaced by bodies that are nearly just as big, move nearly as fast and can do many of the same things athletically without much a dropoff. (April 3, 2015, Page 7A)

Injuries piling up for Ole Miss during ‘physical’ spring

Ole Miss’ football team is hurting. The Rebels are going through their third week of spring practice with many of their first- and second-stringers watching from the sideline. Most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the ball as an offensive line that ended the 2014 season banged up continues to be depleted while the three quarterbacks vying to replace Bo Wallace have limited receivers to target. (March 25, 2015, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Boykin, TCU offense slice up Ole Miss defense

ATLANTA — One of the storylines heading into the Peach Bowl was the TCU offense, led by dual-threat quarterback Trevone Boykin, against the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense in Ole Miss. The question was who would come out on top? And the answer was — the Horned Frogs. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)

Rebels looking to fill void of Sanders, Treadwell

Through 12 games, Bo Wallace has thrown for nearly 3,100 yards. But for No. 9 Ole Miss’ final game of the season against No. 6 TCU, he and the rest of the Rebels will be without two players who accounted for 1,328 of those yards. (December 29, 2014, Page 6)

NOTEBOOK: Arkansas’ fast start puts Rebels on their heels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — By the time the first quarter struck triple zeroes on the scoreboard, No. 8 Ole Miss was staring at a 17-point deficit to the Arkansas Razorbacks, the largest hole the Rebels have found themselves in all season. (November 23, 2014, Page 1B)

Wallace’s bad day looms large for Rebels

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— There is a song that says, “Mama always said there’d be days like this.” Rebel quarterback Bo Wallace had one of those days in No. 8 Ole Miss’ 30-0 loss to Arkansas Saturday. Heading into the game, Wallace had only thrown one interception in Southeastern Conference play. That number jumped up to three after Wallace tossed two at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. (November 23, 2014, Page 2B)

Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss puts Memphis away late, moves to 4-0

Memphis put a landmine in front of Ole Miss’ path to a potential Top-10 showdown with Alabama next weekend. Ole Miss tiptoed around it. The 10th-ranked Rebels committed four turnovers and found themselves clinging to a 7-point lead early in the fourth quarter before finding the end zone twice in the final minutes to pull away for a 24-3 victory Saturday night in front of a crowd of 61,291 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (September 28, 2014, Page 1B)
