Hearing better than ever, Shepard ‘ready to go’ in SEC

With quick feet and fluid hips to go with his 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame, Tee Shepard has all the physical tools that make Ole Miss’ coaches believe he could be a true shutdown cornerback for the Rebels this fall. Now Shepard has the hearing to match. Most of it at least. (April 13, 2015, Page 6)

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)

QBs turn in clean sheet in Ole Miss’ scrimmage

Dan Werner demands three things from his quarterbacks in Ole Miss’ offense: Protect the football, stay ahead of the chains and go fast. Rattling off that checklist and executing it are two different things, but the Rebels’ offensive coordinator liked he what he saw from his signal callers Saturday in a game-like situation. (March 29, 2015, Page 1B)

Rebels’ latest signing class features hits, misses

Wednesday could’ve gone better for the future of Ole Miss’ football program. It also could’ve been worse. The Rebels signed 22 players as part of this year’s recruiting class, including 18 who were verbally committed entering the day. Some needs were addressed more thoroughly than others, but head coach Hugh Freeze liked the balance of his newest crop of signees, which gave the Rebels their third straight consensus top-25 class nationally. (February 5, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

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)

Rebels want to take care of business, then rest

Essentially No. 12 Ole Miss has two bye weeks with Presbyterian coming to town for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday and its final bye week of the season next weekend. It couldn’t come at a better time after coming out of a stretch of five Southeastern Conference games head coach Hugh Freeze called “murderer’s row.” (November 4, 2014, Page 6)

Fast start paces Rebels’ win over Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The 110,633 people who filed into Kyle Field on Saturday night made for the largest crowd to ever witness any kind of football game in Texas. They saw a dominant performance from the visitors. No. 3 Ole Miss had 21 points before the first 20 minutes ticked off the clock and used the fast start to cruise to a 35-20 victory over No. 14 Texas A&M. The win moved the Rebels to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference, their best start in the league since 2003. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels avoid letdown game against Aggies

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — It was supposed to be a letdown game. No. 3 Ole Miss was coming off a 23-17 win over then-No. 3 Alabama at home and watched the goalposts come down inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Experts claimed they had celebrated too much and would have a hangover effect. On top of that, the Rebels had lost their last four games that followed an Alabama game. Only one problem: Nobody told Ole Miss. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)
