In two weeks, the Ole Miss Rebels will tangle with the Vanderbilt Commodores in the season opener. Until then, junior linebacker Keith Lewis will just have to imagine what it will be like to hit an opposing ball carrier. (August 15, 2013, Page 6A)
For the game to slow down, you must speed up.
Injured players dominated the discussion during the first two days of Ole Miss’ summer football drills. Junior wide receiver Vince Sanders suffered a broken collarbone during Saturday’s practice and will be out six weeks. He will undergo a surgery to repair the damage Tuesday.

On the same day that the Ole Miss football program officially announced the transfer of former Southern Miss quarterback and Toronto Blue Jays third-round pick Anthony Alford, news surfaced that another two-sport standout, Senquez Golson, will now focus solely on football.

Things were so good, it almost wasn’t fair to everybody: Before Ole Miss could escape the cold drizzle of the January rain in Birmingham after a never-in-doubt win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl, fans and media were clamoring about the coming recruiting class, which depending on your optimism and news sources, could be one of the best in school history.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Ole Miss’ dramatic turnaround on the gridiron in Hugh Freeze’s first season was punctuated with an impressive, record-setting win in the annual BBVA Compass Bowl Saturday.

While the Rebels still only averaged 3.6 yards per carry, the running game garnered 147 yards on 41 carries and would have yielded better figures in both categories if not for three sacks of quarterback Bo Wallace, who ended up leading the team with 58 yards on 11 carries.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has had a lot on his mind this week. From trying to figure how to slow down an LSU offense that has become more balanced the last two weeks to figuring out which of his injured players would even make the trip to Tiger Stadium and Baton Rouge, La., Freeze has had to balance a lot in a short amount of time. The Rebels (5-5 overall, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) are banged up heading into Saturday’s contest against No. 8 LSU (8-2, 4-2). Vanderbilt’s 27-26 victory last week at Vaught-Hemingway did more than just hurt the team’s heart, it also physically hurt the Rebels. (November 16, 2012, Page 6A)
