TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Hugh Freeze’s face walking into Saturday night’s postgame press conference to talk about his Ole Miss Rebels’ 33-14 setback to No. 1 Alabama in front of 101,821 fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium said everything that needed to be said. It appeared that Freeze was more pleased with how his team played against the vaunted Crimson Tide even before he said as much.
His face also seemed to show disappointment with mistakes made again during the course of the game, such as the 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown turned in by Christion Jones that erased the Rebels’ only lead of the game.
In the end, Freeze was pleased with the effort, the fight and the attitude his Rebels displayed in their first road game in a hostile environment, but he just wanted the game to be a little closer late and he took blame for not allowing that to happen. (October 1, 2012, Page 1B)
That’s what Ole Miss’ defense and offense showed in Saturday’s 33-14 loss to No. 1 Alabama at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Compared to two weeks ago, when the Rebels blew 50 assignments according to defensive coordinator Dave Wommack, Saturday’s effort against the tough-minded Crimson Tide was much improved. (October 1, 2012, Page 1B)

Johnson). (more…) (November 14, 2011, Page 1B)

Ole Miss junior wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan said he and the rest of the team’s receivers have something to prove heading into the 2011 season. In a year where there is no proven No. 1 receiver for a quarterback to throw to, Logan is hoping that he can fill that role sooner rather than later for the Rebels. (June 27, 2011, Page 7)

Heading into the second scrimmage of the spring on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt wanted to see his team show more consistency on both sides of the ball. His hope was his wide receivers would catch throws from the quarterbacks better, the running game would be even more physical and the defense would do an even better job of flying to the football.
Nutt was able to see his offensive line open more holes for the likes of Enrique Davis and Devin Thomas to gain big chunks of yardage, and while the receivers as a group made some plays, the overall performance was still inconsistent for Nutt’s liking. (April 11, 2011, Page 2B)
Football practice has become more enjoyable for Ole Miss sophomore wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan this spring. A year after the 6-foot-2 Natchez native got his feet wet playing in a reserve role at wide receiver, Logan has become one of the two main leaders for a group that is currently short on overall experience.
