Depth breeding spring competition for Ole Miss

Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze likes the numbers he sees when he looks around the practice field. Three full recruiting classes for Freeze and his staff have the Rebels’ roster stocked with the most quality players they’ve had since arriving in Oxford four Decembers ago. The starters at each position — at least the ones that have locked up that distinction — jog off the field after a few reps and are replaced by bodies that are nearly just as big, move nearly as fast and can do many of the same things athletically without much a dropoff. (April 3, 2015, Page 7A)

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)

Manziel rallies Aggies, again, past Rebels

For a few minutes, it looked as if Ole Miss wouldn’t have to deal with Johnny Manziel. But Ole Miss did, and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner turned a game in the balance into a case of déjà vu for the Rebels. (October 14, 2013, Page 1B)

DE Johnson out for remainder of spring

Ole Miss junior defensive end C.J. Johnson will miss the remainder of spring practice after fracturing his fibula during Wednesday’s practice at the Indoor Practice Facility.
