Ole Miss

Retirement day for Col. Reb

Colonel Reb is soon to be a remnant of the past as he goes into the vault tomorrow. Today is the last official day his image can be licensed. The College Licensing Company, the agent for the University of Mississippi licensing issues, released a memo in March to all licensees that the image of the Colonel may only be licensed through August 31. Tomorrow he enters the College Vault Program where the image can only be licensed out for special occasions for historical use. (August 31, 2010, Page 1)

    Colonel Rebel may have disappeared from the sidelines at Ole Miss games several years ago, but there are many Rebel faithful who still show their support for the vacated mascot.

          Ole Miss wore full pads for the first time during the preseason Thursday and the offensive line took full advantage of the additional protection.

            Bulldogs’ AD makes rare visit to Oxford

            Oxford may not be the first city you would expect to find Mississippi State Athletics Director Scott Stricklin, but a stop at Proud Larry’s restaurant on the Square to meet with area Bulldog fans and welcome students who will be attending MSU in the fall was right up his alley.

            Stricklin made a rare appearance in Lafayette County Monday evening and while he attempted to garner additional support for the athletics department, his main goal was to show his support for existing MSU fans who live in an area dominated by Ole Miss Rebel supporters. Being on the road has become a regular occurrence for Stricklin ever since he was named MSU’s athletics director on May 7 and his stop in Oxford was just another city to add to the list that now includes Houston, Texas, Memphis, Birmingham, Ala., and several points in between. (August 3, 2010, Page 6)

              With ‘Bias: MC standout doing his homework

              How much abuse can a high schooler take on the gridiron? Madison Central receiver Tobias Singleton is about to find out.

              One year after losing to South Panola in the Class 6A North Half title game, and being ranked No. 1 in Mississippi for most of the season, Jaguars coach Bobby Hall thinks his squad can be even better in 2010.

              Despite losing 19 starters — two of which are Ole Miss signees Carlton Martin and Bryon Bennett — Hall feels confident his squad can once again make a deep run in the playoffs.
              Perhaps the most important player on the Jaguars this season is none other than Singleton, who is considered one of the top recruits in Mississippi.

              Just how important is Singleton to the Jaguars’ projected success? He’s so important, that the Jaguars plan to get the ball in his hands at least 20 times a game, whether it be as a receiver, returner on special teams or quarterbacking Madison Central’s wildcat formation.
              And that’s just the way Singleton wants it. (July 23, 2010, Page 7A)
