Thursday’s heat and humidity seemed to only inspire the Ole Miss Rebels during their practice session. Instead of wilting in the heat, coach Hugh Freeze felt like his team performed better overall compared to Wednesday’s session. (August 9, 2013, Page 6A)
JACKSON — Mississippi’s top uncommitted football player for the 2014 signing class has found a home.

Had it been anyone else who was late to practice, he may have had to run laps or stadiums as punishment.

One of the misconceptions about Ole Miss’ new-look offense installed by coach Hugh Freeze is that the quarterback passes every down and the running game, well, is soft and unable to get the tough yard on a consistent basis. Freeze has tried to erase that misnomer about his offense since he was hired and most recently during summer camp.

Heading into preseason camp, new offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator Matt Luke made it a goal of his to give every player a clean slate.
