COLUMN: Laser focus becoming more and more critical for Rebels

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — So much for a hangover. Lots of folks wondered how Ole Miss would respond to such an emotional high after knocking off Alabama for the first time in 10 years but what seemed like forever. Could Ole Miss handle it? Would the Rebels be able to quickly refocus for the next landmine set in front of them in the brutal SEC West? Ole Miss not only turned the page, they slammed the book on Texas A&M. (October 12, 2014, Page 1B)

Rebels exeperiencing ‘new normal’ of consistent winning

It wasn’t too long ago that embarrassments on the football field were the norm for Ole Miss. Saturday’s win over then-No. 3 Alabama is part of a new culture. (October 6, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels aim to win this time against Alabama

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze doesn’t know if his team will put up more points than Alabama on Saturday evening at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. But for the first time in his tenure, there’s a belief that it could actually happen. (September 30, 2014, Page 6)

NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, and friend of head coach Hugh Freeze, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. visited the campus of Ole Miss Tuesday to talk to several student groups about the upcoming Talladega races in October.

No. 15 Ole Miss not looking past Commodores in SEC opener

Ole Miss has seen the film. It’s not changing the Rebels’ collective opinion of their opponent this week. No. 15 Ole Miss (1-0) will travel to Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday to open Southeastern Conference play against Vanderbilt (0-1). The teams began their respective seasons in drastically different fashions. (September 5, 2014, Page 6)

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)

COLUMN: Ole Miss defense passes eye test

ATLANTA- You had a good idea, but until you see it live, you just don’t really know. Ole Miss’ defense was the talk of fall camp. Another crop of newcomers along with some key transfers had made the unit as deep as it’s been in the last three years, and those recruiting classes had brought some top-flight talent to that side of the ball. (August 29, 2014, Page 1B)

Talent, depth have Rebels eyeing improved pass rush

Ole Miss’ pass rush didn’t scare a whole lot of teams last year. It’s been hard to tell during fall camp. (August 27, 2014, Page 6)

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)
