Mike Bianco

Mike Bianco is the head coach of the Ole Miss baseball team. A graduate of LSU, he joined Ole Miss in 2000 and has been instrumental in making the Diamond Rebels a mainstay on the national collegiate baseball scene.

Heading into the 2010, Bianco had a record of 365-203-1 in nine seasons as Ole Miss' coach. For more about his tenure from Ole Miss Sports Information, click here.

Rebels can’t hold on to claim series

Just a couple of inches either way and who knows how Sunday’s game could have turned out at Oxford-University Stadium.

Down to their final strike of the series, Auburn center fielder Ryan Tella hit a two-out double that soared down the left field foul line and barely dropped in fair between the foul line and sliding Ole Miss left fielder Tanner Mathis.

Tiger left fielder Cullen Wacker then hit a double into the opposite corner, scoring Tella to tie the game.

The second double ended the day of Ole Miss starter Mike Mayers, who had limited the Tigers to just four hits until the ninth.

With Rebel closer Brett Huber on the mound, Auburn first baseman Garrett Cooper hit a single up the middle, scoring Wacker to put the Tigers ahead of No. 12 Ole Miss 3-2. (March 19, 2012, Page 6)

Auburn pitchers stymie Rebel bats

The No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels entered this weekend’s Southeastern Conference opener as the league’s second-most offensive team in terms of runs scored.

After dropping two of three and being limited to just eight total runs, well below their 8.59 average per game, the Rebels were left looking for answers. (March 19, 2012, Page 6)

Tigers running into SEC opener

Will Allen currently has his right ring finger coupled with his fractured pinky finger by two pieces of white athletic tape.

After this weekend’s Southeastern Conference opener against the new-look Auburn Tigers, Allen may need to ice down his shoulder.

The Auburn Tigers (10-7 overall) head into today’s first game of the three-game set leading the nation in stolen bases.

For a team that was once as likely to knock the ball out of the park as it was to swipe second, the rank denotes an obvious change in philosophy on The Plains. (March 16, 2012, Page 7A)

No. 14 Rebels earn three-game sweep

It’s safe to say nobody saw this weekend coming.

Did the No. 14 Ole Miss Rebels expect to claim their final non-conference series?

Of course.

Were the Rebels hoping for a clean weekend in the field, an efficient three games from the pitchers and an aggressive series at the plate? (more…) (March 12, 2012, Page 1B)

SS Anderson bounces back against Houston

Austin Anderson made up for his slow start to the season in a big way on Sunday.

Ole Miss’ sophomore shortstop entered the Houston series with a batting average south of .200, but against Cougar pitchers on Sunday, he had a breakout day by going 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and three runs scored. (more…) (March 12, 2012, Page 1B)

No. 14 Rebels ready to host UH Cougars

No. 14 Rebels blast the Skyhawks

Tuesday’s game against the UT-Martin Skyhawks provided Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco with his third opportunity this season to empty his bench as the No. 14 Rebels rolled to a 20-4 victory at Oxford-University Stadium. (March 7, 2012, Page 7)

Could Preston Overbey see time at catcher?

Ole Miss sophomore Preston Overbey made his career debut at catcher on Tuesday, catching right-handed freshman Chris Ellis in a perfect ninth.

Due to the injury to sophomore Will Allen, and Taylor Hightower no longer being a member of the team, the Rebels only have freshman Austin Knight and junior college transfer Kody Sepulveda as catchers on the roster.

Overbey has been working in practice at catcher because of the dwindling numbers behind the plate, so Bianco opted to give the corner infielder some game action against UT-Martin. (March 7, 2012, Page 7)

Exciting finish lands No. 16 Rebs with series

Ole Miss pitcher Mike Mayers closed his eyes when he heard the muted ping resonate off the bat of Miami (Ohio) center fielder Alex Johnson.

Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco couldn’t see the play from his position calling pitches in the dugout, but he did hear the roar of the crowd. (more…) (March 5, 2012, Page 8A)
