Ole Miss lands commitment from top JUCO QB Kelly

Ole Miss may have found its replacement for Bo Wallace. East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly verbally committed to Ole Miss on Wednesday following a visit to the school. Kelly, the nephew of NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, is widely regarded as the nation’s top junior college signal caller. Kelly, who has two seasons of eligibility left, announced his decision on Twitter before confirming it later. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Kelly chose the Rebels over Indiana, Virginia Tech and LSU among others. (December 11, 2014, Page 6A)

Bo Wallace — one of the best ever in red and blue

Publisher Tim Phillips thinks back to where Ole Miss football was before Bo Wallace came to Oxford and where it is after the Rebels reclaimed the Golden Egg by beating Mississippi State, and makes the case that Wallace is one of the best ever to play quarterback for the Rebels. (December 7, 2014, Page 4A)

Bye week will ‘certainly help’ Rebels heal for final stretch

It was tempting, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze knew he couldn’t. Senior quarterback Bo Wallace entered Saturday’s game against Presbyterian College just 262 yards shy of breaking Eli Manning’s school record for total offense. Wallace accumulated 155 total yards in two quarters, but with Ole Miss holding a 35-0 lead at the break, his day was done. At this point of the season, health trumps statistics. (November 11, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels overwhelm Presbyterian College in rout

No. 12 Ole Miss jumped on its lone Football Championship Subdivision opponent of the season, got its backups a ton of snaps and overwhelmed Presbyterian College for a 48-0 win in front of 60,546 fans clad mostly in red and blue. Ole Miss (8-2 overall) had a handful of starters sitting with injuries, but it didn’t stop the Rebels from turning in gobs of big plays against the overmatched Blue Hose (5-5) and ending a two-game losing streak heading into its second bye week of the season. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Freeze gives glimpse into future at QB position

As was expected, Ole Miss jumped out to a 35-0 lead at halftime Saturday against Presbyterian College. That large lead meant starting quarterback Bo Wallace’s day was done and it gave the fans a glimpse into what the future could potentially look like at the position as the Rebels went on to complete a 48-0 victory. (November 9, 2014, Page 1B)

Freeze ‘encouraged’ by practice, likes plan for UL-L

Ole Miss did not have a good practice Tuesday, according to head coach Hugh Freeze. Wednesday’s practice inside the Indoor Practice Facility was much better as the No. 14 Rebels prepare for Louisiana-Lafayette this Saturday. (September 11, 2014, Page 9)

NOTEBOOK: Shepard’s return to field ‘doesn’t look promising’

The update on cornerback Tee Shepard isn’t good for Ole Miss. Shepard, one of the Rebels’ top newcomers, hasn’t practiced since Friday and may end up missing the entire season with a partially torn tendon under his big toe. The sophomore, who had been running with the first team at times during camp, suffered the injury late last week, and the coaching staff is in the process of getting second and third opinions from doctors before deciding what course of action to take. (August 14, 2014, Page 8)

Rebels begin two-a-days with moving parts

Thursday marked the first of Ole Miss’ two-a-day practices in fall camp. Head coach Hugh Freeze liked what he saw out of the morning session but felt the team was just trying to survive instead of enjoy the morning drills. (August 8, 2014, Page 6A)

Freeze ‘disappointed’ in backup QB race

Ole Miss’ fourth day of preseason practice had a mixed bag feel to it Tuesday. There were some good things along with some bad things, coach Hugh Freeze said. (August 6, 2014, Page 6)
