Crouse turns successful offseason into Friday night role for Rebels

There’s been plenty of questions surrounding the Ole Miss baseball team heading into today’s season opener against Wright State.

What hasn’t been in question? Who is taking the place of top draft pick Drew Pomeranz as the Friday night starter.

That honor goes to junior left-hander Matt Crouse, and apparently the choice to go with the Virginian was an obvious one. (February 18, 2011, Page 6A)

What pressure? Newalu confident heading into season as Rebs’ SS

Ole Miss baseball coach Mike Bianco admitted on Monday that sometimes defense — well, reliable defense — can be taken for granted at times.

That was never more evident than in 2008, when the Rebels transitioned from Zack Cozart at shortstop to a combination of Sean Stuyverson, Tim Ferguson and Evan Button and the trio committed 27 errors.

The next two seasons, Ole Miss was lucky enough to have Kevin Mort restore order to the position and with any luck, the Rebels are hoping junior college transfer Blake Newalu will be an extension of Mort’s dependability. (February 16, 2011, Page 7)

Rebs persevere through weather to prepare for season

At times this preseason the Ole Miss baseball Rebels have felt like they called Minneapolis home instead of Oxford.

Due to the recent southern blizzards that shut down local school districts for days at a time, the Rebels have had a difficult couple of weeks leading up to Friday’s season opener against Wright State. (more…) (February 14, 2011, Page 8A)

Public hears about bond issue

Potential bond referendum voters discussed the issue in a town hall setting on Tuesday night at the Oxford High School cafeteria. Oxford residents discussed their support for the new high school and concerns about voting on an issue when not all the information is available – such as where the new school would be built and when the athletic facilities would be moved.

A vote is set for Oct. 26 for a $30 million bond referendum to build a new high school and renovate existing schools. (October 13, 2010, Page 1, 3)

Bianco wins 500th game as head coach

Mike Bianco picked up his 500th career win as a head coach and his 400th at the helm of the Ole Miss baseball program as the No. 15 Rebels defeated Arkansas State 5-2 on Wednesday night.

The win closed out the non-conference schedule for the Rebels (35-15 overall). Ole Miss went 20-6 outside of league play this season. (May 13, 2010, Page 1B)

Rebs avoid sweep, end streak with Sunday win

David Phillips and Matt Smith both homered and the No. 18 Ole Miss Rebels put together a big inning in the fifth to help earn a 5-4 win over No. 5 South Carolina Sunday at Carolina Stadium.

The win on Sunday ended a six-game losing streak in Sunday games for the Rebels (24-13 overall, 8-7 in the Southeastern Confernce). South Carolina (28-8, 11-4) won the first two games of the weekend to take the series. (April 19, 2010, Page 4B)
