Ole Miss Rebels

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)

    Anderson using midweek starts to improve game

    Behind Christian Trent and Brady Bramlett, the pitching picture has become a little blurry for the Ole Miss baseball team. That picture is getting a little clearer, at least when it comes to the midweek games and Evan Anderson.  The left-hander has become the regular starter for the Rebels when it comes to games on Tuesday or Wednesday nights, and it has helped Anderson focus more on his game and hone his skills. (April 2, 2015, Page 6)

        Ole Miss looking for next man in the middle

        Ole Miss is exhausting all avenues in its attempt to find the next man in the middle of its defense. Deterrian Shackelford’s eligibility expired after six seasons last year, leaving a position that’s been stable in recent seasons suddenly surrounded by uncertainty. Shackelford moved to middle linebacker last year to fill the void of Mike Marry, who started for three seasons before Shackelford took over. (April 1, 2015, Page 1B)

            Judd gets chance to show power in Rebels’ backfield

            Ole Miss didn’t get much power out of its running game last season. Akeem Judd may be able to help with that. The Rebels have amped up the physicality on the ground this spring, emphasizing what head coach Hugh Freeze called “good, dirty runs.” Judd, who’s going through his first spring at Ole Miss, is impressing in that role. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

              Shepard, Bridges lead long, revamped secondary

              They wear No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. It’s a fitting number scheme for the expectations Ole Miss has for Tony Bridges and Tee Shepard in its retooled secondary. Bridges and Shepard have been working as the first-team cornerbacks for a majority of the spring, and barring any significant injuries, they’ll stay there this fall. Ranked by varying recruiting sites as the nation’s top junior college cornerbacks in the last two recruiting cycles, the pair is a different breed than what the Rebels have had the last few seasons. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

                    QBs turn in clean sheet in Ole Miss’ scrimmage

                    Dan Werner demands three things from his quarterbacks in Ole Miss’ offense: Protect the football, stay ahead of the chains and go fast. Rattling off that checklist and executing it are two different things, but the Rebels’ offensive coordinator liked he what he saw from his signal callers Saturday in a game-like situation. (March 29, 2015, Page 1B)
