Hearing better than ever, Shepard ‘ready to go’ in SEC

With quick feet and fluid hips to go with his 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame, Tee Shepard has all the physical tools that make Ole Miss’ coaches believe he could be a true shutdown cornerback for the Rebels this fall. Now Shepard has the hearing to match. Most of it at least. (April 13, 2015, Page 6)

    QBs, offense lead Blue past Red in Grove Bowl

    The margin separating Ole Miss’ three quarterbacks has been so thin, offensive coordinator Dan Werner described it as “ridiculous.” They all got to put on one final spring audition for their coaches in the Grove Bowl on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Werner and head coach Hugh Freeze will have to review the tape to get a more accurate assessment of the signal callers’ performances, but immediately after watching the Blue team top the Red, 17-7, in a full-scale scrimmage, not much changed that opinion. (April 12, 2015, Page 1B)

            Ole Miss receivers draw mixed reviews in spring

            What kind of spring have Ole Miss’ wide receivers had? A former defensive back has been the best of the group. That’s the word from head coach Hugh Freeze, whose wideouts have struggled to string together consistency the last five weeks. There’s no shortage of targets for quarterbacks Ryan Buchanan, DeVante Kincade and Chad Kelly to throw to even with Laquon Treadwell out, but even the simplest passes aren’t always resulting in completions. (April 10, 2015, Page 6A)

                Jeremy Liggins didn’t put up a fight. When Ole Miss’ coaches approached the rising junior about moving to yet another position before spring practice started, one where he would go from having a chance to touch the football on any given play to having no shot, Liggins didn’t plead to stay put. He did what the Rebels needed him to do — and what he may have needed to do for his future. (April 9, 2015, Page 6, 7)
