    JUCO transfer more than just a return man

    Ole Miss’ return game has experienced some turnover since the last time the Rebels took the field.

    Gone is Jesse Grandy, who transferred to Central Arkansas after averaging 14.7 yards per punt return and 20.9 per kick return as a sophomore. (more…) (August 26, 2011, Page 7A)

      Campbell adding touch to his game

      There’s an art to being an effective punter.

      To paraphrase the famous Nike tag line of the 90s, chicks may dig the long ball, but football coaches dig the ball that’s downed inside the opponents 10-yard line.

      That’s something Ole Miss junior punter Tyler Campbell has been working on this summer.

      Known for his howitzer of a leg — Campbell led the nation in 2010 with an average of 46.37 yards — he spent this summer working on the tactical aspects of punting. (August 25, 2011, Page 6)

        Mackey forces Nutt’s hand in QB competition

        Houston Nutt cut to the point pretty quick following Ole Miss’ football practice on Tuesday.

        Flanked by reporters, the Ole Miss head coach skipped his customary opening statement and announced that Randall Mackey will be suspended for the Rebels’ season opener against BYU on Sept. 3 because of his recent arrest.

        In Mackey’s place, Nutt said sophomore Barry Brunetti will start and junior Zack Stoudt will also see playing time.

        Talking to reporters, it was obvious that Nutt was disappointed Mackey forced his hand in regard to the quarterback competition.

          Nutt suspends Mackey, names Brunetti Game 1 starter

          BLOG: Houston Nutt was not short and to the point after today’s football practice.

            Rebels will look to young LBs

            Ole Miss had a pretty standard sales pitch when it was recruiting this year’s freshmen linebackers: Come to Oxford and you’ll have a chance to contribute right away.

            The extent, however, that the Rebels will be relying on the newcomers could be a bit surprising. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

              Dorsey looking for redemption in 2011

              A lot was made of Wayne Dorsey’s arrival in Oxford prior to the 2010 spring semester.

              After graduating early from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Dorsey enrolled early in Ole Miss to get a jump start on adapting to life in the Southeastern Conference. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 2B)

                Rebels have talent, depth at RB

                It’s probably fair to say Ole Miss fans are hoping for a different 2011 on the gridiron.

                One area that will need to remain the same if the Rebels are going to improve on their 4-8 season from a year ago, is their rushing attack.

                Ole Miss ranked third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing offense, averaging 207.6 yards per game, and returns its top three running backs in All-SEC candidate Brandon Bolden, fellow senior Enrique Davis and sophomore Jeff Scott. (more…) (August 17, 2011, Page 6)

                    Golson turns down offer from BoSox

                    The wild roller coaster that surrounded the Boston Red Sox late courtship of dual-sport standout Senquez Golson finally came to an end Monday night with the passing of Major League Baseball’s midnight (ET) deadline for drafted players to sign professional contracts.

                    Golson, who had been practicing with the Gridiron Rebels up until flying to Boston early Monday, turned down at least one offer of $1.3 million according to RebelGrove.com to retain his amateur status.

                    It was believed all along that Golson’s decision would go down to the wire, so much so that following Monday’s football practice Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt asked reporters if there was any news. (August 16, 2011, Page 8)
