Markuson keeping Rebel linemen focused

Don’t ask Ole Miss offensive line coach Mike Markuson who will win the Southeastern Conference title or any other title this year.

Markuson isn’t a big fan of preseason publications, and that includes hearing the early buzz about his offensive line being one of the best in the SEC and nation.

From Markuson’s perspective, his line still has something to prove and the preseason hype usually doesn’t help prove that point. (August 18, 2011, Page 2B)

Bulldogs maintain control of “Golden Egg”

A season that got off to a bad start and never got on track finally came to an end for the Ole Miss Rebels in the form of a 31-23 loss to the No. 25 Mississippi State Bulldogs Saturday night in front of a crowd of 58,625 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Despite a desire to make amends for last season’s loss to the Bulldogs, the Rebels were thoroughly outplayed again by the visitors from Starkville.

Ole Miss (4-8 overall, 1-7 in the Southeastern Conference) gave up 498 yards to the Bulldogs (8-4, 4-4) in the loss and made several key gaffes on offense that prevented them from ending the season on a high note. (November 29, 2010, Page 1B)

Nutt ready to lead Rebels back into SEC play

A re-engergized Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt seemed ready to lead his team back into Southeastern Conference play two days after the Rebels recorded their most impressive win of the season.

Nutt talked about moving forward with several young players, specifically on defense at the end spot, with the loss of senior leader Kentrell Lockett, who will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL. (September 28, 2010, Page 6)

Offensive explosion lifts Rebels past Fresno State

An offensive explosion, led by the running of Brandon Bolden, and a defensive unit that did much better against the run game ultimately propelled the Ole Miss Rebels to a much needed home win Saturday night.

The Rebels pounded Fresno State 55-38 in front of a crowd of 55,267 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium by winning the battle up front on both sides of the ball. Ole Miss’ offense totaled a season-high 578 yards with 425 yards coming on the ground, while a beleaguered defense that struggled at key times last week against Vanderbilt, shut down the Bulldogs’ ground game to the tune of just 30 yards on 33 carries.

Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was visibly pleased with the results and the manner in which his team won its first home game of the year. (September 27, 2010, Page 1B)

Lockett lost for season

After injuring himself during the first quarter of Ole Miss’ 55-38 victory over Fresno State on Saturday, senior defensive end Kentrell Lockett is done for the year.

During the Bulldogs’ second possession of the game, Lockett jumped in an attempt to block a screen pass and landed awkwardly. He remained on the turf until trainers helped him limp off the field.

During his postgame press conference, head coach Houston Nutt confirmed that Lockett will likely miss the season with an apparent ACL injury. (September 27, 2010, Page 1B)

OM’s Shackelford, Neat suffer minor injuries Tuesday

Preparations for Saturday’s home game against Fresno State resumed Tuesday for the Ole Miss Rebels, who ending up losing two impact players during the session.

Sophomore linebacker D.T. Shackelford suffered a sprained ankle during Tuesday’s practice, while freshman running back/wide receiver Korvic Neat suffered a strained hamstring. (September 22, 2010, Page 6)

More focus needed for Rebels to make a turnaround

Focus and leaning on a few seniors are two of the many ways Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt was planning on turning around the Rebels’ fortunes Saturday night when they host Fresno State at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

A 1-2 start to the season, against teams that are not the best on the Rebels’ schedule, is not what Nutt and his staff anticipated in preseason.

But instead of dwelling on the slow start and feeling sorry about where the team is, Nutt said the only medicine is to get back to work and ultimately earn a win. (September 21, 2010, Page 6)
