Making a return trip to Omaha and the College World Series is a tough task for any baseball team no matter how talented. That is just what Ole Miss plans to do though after getting back to the CWS for the first time since 1972 last season and becoming one of the final four teams fighting for a national championship before being ousted by eventual runner-up Virginia. That journey began last Friday as teams were allowed to begin formally practicing across the country. Ole Miss is preparing for its season-opening series against William & Mary beginning on Feb. 13.

OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss is one of the last four teams playing college baseball.
The Rebels stayed alive at the College World Series with a 6-4 victory over TCU Thursday night at TD Ameritrade Park. The win moved Ole Miss into the finals of its half of the bracket for another matchup with Virginia tonight at 7. (June 20, 2014, Page 6A)
OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss’ offense returned to its normal self Thursday night.

OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss is one of five teams still playing in the College World Series. Some more production from the Rebels’ bats would go a long way in keeping it that way.
It’s been a rare struggle through the first two games in Omaha for an Ole Miss offense that led the Southeastern Conference in average during the regular season. (June 19, 2014, Page 6)
OMAHA, Neb. — Ole Miss, fresh off its walk-off victory over Texas Tech in the College World Series, returned to the practice field Wednesday morning in preparation for another elimination game against TCU on Thursday. (more…) (June 18, 2014)
LAFAYETTE, La. — Before this season, OIe Miss coach Mike Bianco had led four different Ole Miss teams to an NCAA super regional. None of them got to the College World Series.
That’s not the case any more and it’s because the 2014 Rebels did what they had to do to overcome adversity and mistakes. They did it again Monday in a 10-4 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette that earned them a trip to the CWS. (June 10, 2014, Page 6)
LAFAYETTE, La. — Ole Miss exorcised some postseason demons on Monday night, advancing to the College World Series with a 10-4 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette in Game 3 of the Lafayette Super Regional at “Tigue” Moore Field. (more…) (June 9, 2014)
LAFAYETTE, La. — There was no escaping the magnitude of the moment.
The only choice Ole Miss had Sunday if it wanted to extend its season was to win. The Rebels were humbled in a 9-5 loss in the opening game of the Lafayette Super Regional on Saturday, putting their season on the verge of extinction.
It didn’t bother Christian Trent. (June 9, 2014, Page 6)
Ole Miss doesn’t know much about Louisiana-Lafayette other than what the scouting report tells it. It’s more than enough to give the Rebels an idea of just how potent the Ragin’ Cajuns bats are. (June 6, 2014, Page 6A)
