Ole Miss returned to the practice field as a full football team Monday morning in the Indoor Practice Facility with a workout geared toward the future as well as the Rebels’ upcoming contest with Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said he liked the energy he saw from his team in their return to practice, the first as a team since before the Rebels defeated Mississippi State 41-24 in the Egg Bowl on Nov. 24. (December 18, 2012, Page 8)
Ole Miss’ recruitment of wide receivers for the 2013 football signing class produced the most news over the weekend.
After expressing his desire to play for coach Hugh Freeze in an interview Thursday night, San Antonio wide receiver Dannon Cavil (6-foot-5, 205-pounds) decided an offer from California and new coach Sonny Dykes was better suited for him Saturday afternoon. (more…) (December 17, 2012, Page 1B)

An in-home visit from Sonny Dykes, Cal’s recently hired head coach, didn’t sway wide receiver Dannon Cavil from his commitment to Ole Miss.
The 6-foot-5 Cavil, who just wrapped up his high school career at James Madison High in San Antonio, was visited by Dykes Wednesday night as a last-ditch attempt to gain his commitment for the Golden Bears’ 2013 signing class. (more…) (December 14, 2012, Page 6A)
COLUMN: Ole Miss’ success on the recruiting trail isn’t exclusively tracked by fans. Current verbal commitments for the 2013 football recruiting class are keeping up with what coach Hugh Freeze and his staff are achieving in the days leading up to National Signing Day on Feb. 6, 2013.
One of those commits that is interested in how the rest of the class shakes out is Grenada athlete Trey Bledsoe (6-foot-2, 185 pounds).

Mississippi’s junior college football programs have routinely produced some of the nation’s best talent each season and served Ole Miss in times of need. Monday, the Rebels were able to land another top player from the state in East Mississippi defensive tackle Jarran Reed. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Reed picked the Rebels over offers from North Carolina, Mississippi State and others due to the interest he garnered from the Ole Miss staff, specifically defensive line coach Chris Kiffin and graduate assistant Tray Scott.
Reed, who is a native of Goldsboro, N.C., has been thinking about committing to the Rebels since he attended the Vanderbilt game on Nov. 10. Reed was planning to set up his official visits during the Christmas break but that changed after talking with his mother about playing for coach Hugh Freeze. (December 11, 2012, Page 8)

As it was explained to me, Ole Miss Sports Productions took on the project, brought Tim Burkhead in as director and helped fill out the rest of the crew. Tim had a preexisting relationship with the band, and had a concept already in mind, which made him a perfect fit for director on the piece.
