Trae Elston

NOTEBOOK: Rebels’ Elston suspended a half against A&M

No. 3 Ole Miss is about to face the most potent passing attack it’s seen all season, and the Rebels will have to defend it without one of its starters in the secondary early on. Rebel coach Hugh Freeze has suspended junior safety Trae Elston for the first half of this Saturday’s game against No. 14 Texas A&M (8 p.m., ESPN) after Elston attempted to kick Alabama running back Kenyan Drake during the second quarter of last week’s 23-17 win over the Crimson Tide (October 7, 2014, Page 6)

BLOG — Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze reflected on his team’s big win over Alabama and looked ahead to another top-15 matchup awaiting the Rebels this Saturday at Texas A&M, but the coach also spent part of his weekly press conference Monday revealing that one of Ole Miss’ starters will be disciplined for part of the game against the Aggies.

Alford leaves Ole Miss football team for baseball

No. 11 Ole Miss is preparing for one of its biggest games in program history against third-ranked Alabama, but the Rebels will be down one player as sophomore defensive back Anthony Alford left the program Tuesday. (October 1, 2014, Page 1B)

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)

Rebels’ backup QB battle rages on

A quarterback battle is still brewing at Ole Miss, though it has nothing to do with the starter. Bo Wallace will operate the controls of the Rebels’ offense for the third straight season. Who would be first off the bench to spare the senior in a blowout or should he get injured is still a mystery. Redshirt freshmen Ryan Buchanan and DeVante Kincade continue to duke it out for the backup job. With less than two weeks before the season opener Aug. 28 against Boise State in Atlanta, the race is far from being settled. (August 18, 2014, Page 6)

SEC NOTEBOOK: Targeting rule, ejections draw mixed reviews

In light of football’s ever-growing concussion crisis, the game is taking precautions at all levels to increase the safety of players.
College football did its part this past offseason to enhance the safety of its players with the introduction of the targeting penalty, where defensive players who hit, or “target,” defenseless ball carriers in the head with the crown of their helmet will automatically be ejected from the game in addition to costing their team 15 yards. (September 26, 2013, Page 8)

Rebels looking to get healthy in off week

Ole Miss has made it through the first three weeks of the season unscathed, beginning a campaign 3-0 for the first time since 1989. Now it’s time for the Rebels to clean up the mistakes, break any obvious repetitions and get healthy for an upcoming schedule that head coach Hugh Freeze called “probably the toughest stretch of games that anyone will have to play this year.” (September 17, 2013, Page 6)
