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)

NOTEBOOK: Sanders’ career day leads Ole Miss over Ragin’ Cajuns

Vince Sanders was having an OK start to the 2014 season with seven catches for 100 yards in the first two games. Saturday, in Ole Miss’ 56-15 win over Louisiana-Lafayette, the Rebel senior wideout had a career day. (September 14, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels use late surge to down Broncos

ATLANTA- As ugly as the start was for Ole Miss, the finish was just as appealing. The 18th-ranked Rebels sputtered on offense for most of the night, leaning heavily on the help of an opportunistic defense before finding a rhythm late to start the season with a 35-13 win over Boise State on Thursday in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in the Georgia Dome. (August 29, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Core sparks Rebs in win over Boise State

ATLANTA- Ole Miss’ offense was sputtering for most of the night and they needed someone, anyone to give them a spark. Cody Core decided it would be him. (August 29, 2014, Page 1B)

Ole Miss begins final prep for Broncos

The Ole Miss football team started game week with an indoor practice Monday night. It was a light workout as the players didn’t use shoulder pads. With fall camp over and the Rebels turning their focus toward Boise State, one this is certain: they are ready to put the pads on and hit someone other than themselves. (August 26, 2014, Page 8)

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Liggins getting work exclusively as tight end

Any packages that had Jeremy Liggins operating as the quarterback have been scratched from Ole Miss’ playbook. Liggins moved from quarterback to tight end at the start of fall camp, but the former Lafayette High standout was still moonlighting as a Wildcat quarterback at times. That’s no longer the case as the 6-foot-3, 296-pound Liggins continues to learn the nuances of his new position. (August 25, 2014, Page 7)
