Ryan Buchanan

QBs, offense lead Blue past Red in Grove Bowl

The margin separating Ole Miss’ three quarterbacks has been so thin, offensive coordinator Dan Werner described it as “ridiculous.” They all got to put on one final spring audition for their coaches in the Grove Bowl on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Werner and head coach Hugh Freeze will have to review the tape to get a more accurate assessment of the signal callers’ performances, but immediately after watching the Blue team top the Red, 17-7, in a full-scale scrimmage, not much changed that opinion. (April 12, 2015, Page 1B)

COLUMN: QB job Kelly’s to lose

Sports Editor Davis Potter explains why he thinks even though Ryan Buchanan took the slight lead over the other quarterbacks in the spring that it will still be Chad Kelly’s job to lose come fall. (April 12, 2015, Page 1B)

VIDEO: Ole Miss’ Freeze, QBs talk Grove Bowl

The Ole Miss football team concluded its spring with the Grove Bowl on Saturday. The Rebels split into two teams and held a full scrimmage at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium with the Blue team beating the Red squad, 17-7. (more…) (April 11, 2015)

Shepard, Bridges lead long, revamped secondary

They wear No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. It’s a fitting number scheme for the expectations Ole Miss has for Tony Bridges and Tee Shepard in its retooled secondary. Bridges and Shepard have been working as the first-team cornerbacks for a majority of the spring, and barring any significant injuries, they’ll stay there this fall. Ranked by varying recruiting sites as the nation’s top junior college cornerbacks in the last two recruiting cycles, the pair is a different breed than what the Rebels have had the last few seasons. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

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)

Ole Miss’ quarterback competition ‘really close’

There’s been little separation this spring among the candidates vying to take over the reins of Ole Miss’ offense from Bo Wallace. And it doesn’t sound like the race to be the Rebels’ next quarterback will end anytime soon. Rising sophomores Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade have been biding their time the last two seasons while junior-to-be Chad Kelly came from the junior college ranks in January to add a third competitor to the mix. (March 27, 2015, Page 1B)

Treadwell working his way back to full speed

Laquon Treadwell has been running routes for the better part of a month. He’s been running around longer than that. The rehabilitation process for Ole Miss’ star wide receiver has been progressing at warp speed since he suffered his gruesome leg injury in the final seconds of the Rebels’ nail-biting loss to Auburn in early November inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (March 26, 2015, Page 6)

Injuries piling up for Ole Miss during ‘physical’ spring

Ole Miss’ football team is hurting. The Rebels are going through their third week of spring practice with many of their first- and second-stringers watching from the sideline. Most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the ball as an offensive line that ended the 2014 season banged up continues to be depleted while the three quarterbacks vying to replace Bo Wallace have limited receivers to target. (March 25, 2015, Page 6)

Rebels’ young quarterbacks on alert with addition of Kelly

Even when Bo Wallace was still in an Ole Miss uniform, the question lingered: Will it be Ryan Buchanan on DeVante Kincade that prevails in the competition to replace the Rebels’ quarterback in 2015? Turns out it may not be either one. Another signal caller is set to enter the mix in East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly, who signed with the Rebels in December and still has his scholarship despite being arrested in the same month. The addition of Kelly blows the race wide open when spring practice starts later today. (March 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Freeze aware of possible ‘embarassment’ with Kelly

It would’ve been easy for Hugh Freeze to give his latest junior college quarterback signee the boot a month ago. Instead, Ole Miss’ coach is giving Chad Kelly yet another chance. Freeze is just hoping it doesn’t come back to bite him. (February 6, 2015, Page 6A)
