NEW ORLEANS — Hugh Freeze’s goal of seeing his team play a complete game, with improved consistency, didn’t materialize quite like he was hoping Saturday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Ole Miss’ defense was much improved against Tulane in the 39-0 win but the offense sputtered outside of the first quarter and produced three fumbles that thwarted potential scoring opportunities.
Offensive coordinator Dan Werner said the fumbles, specifically those made by quarterback Bo Wallace, have to disappear with No. 1 Alabama up next. (September 24, 2012, Page 1B)
In an effort to avoid a hangover from the 66-31 loss suffered at the hands of then No. 14 Texas this Saturday against Tulane, Freeze and his staff want the players to focus on making corrections from the Texas game but not dwell on the outcome. (September 18, 2012, Page 6)

Recruiting football players from the talent rich state of Florida is something almost every school in the nation attempts to do on a yearly basis. Ole Miss has signed its fair share of good players from Florida in recent years and if efforts continue to go as they have so far this spring, then first-year head coach Hugh Freeze should be able to talk about some Sunshine State talent come signing day.
Chris Nee, the recruiting analyst who covers the state of Florida for Rivals.com, said Ole Miss has been very active in the state again thanks to the efforts of assistant coaches Chris Kiffin, Matt Luke and Wesley McGriff.
According to Nee, McGriff has built a lot of relationships with high school coaches from his days at Miami. (July 17, 2012, Page 6)
Optimism for the future of Ole Miss football continued to build Friday morning when Hugh Freeze picked up a verbal pledge from another standout offensive player. Dallas (Skyline High School) quarterback Devante Kincade chose the Rebels over several other impressive offers thanks in large part to relationship he built with Freeze, quarterbacks coach Dan Werner and his primary recruiter, Wesley McGriff.

Ole Miss’ final verbal commitment, and subsequent letter of intent, of the 2012 football signing class made the biggest impact Wednesday for first-year coach Hugh Freeze and his staff.
As highly rated and needed as Aberdeen defensive end Channing Ward is to the signing class, Oxford, Ala., Trae Elston (6-foot, 183 pounds) coming on board Wednesday and picking the Rebels over LSU and Oklahoma State live on ESPNU from his high school helped finish out Freeze’s first class in style.
