After watching film of Saturday’s 39-0 win over Tulane, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said his team actually got as close to playing a complete as it has all season. With the exception of three lost fumbles, Freeze seem to think his team did everything expected of them in all three phases.
That’s good news considering the now Rebels (3-1 overall) travel to play at No. 1 Alabama on Saturday night to open their Southeastern Conference schedule. (September 25, 2012, Page 6)

NEW ORLEANS — Hugh Freeze’s goal of seeing his team play a complete game, with improved consistency, didn’t materialize quite like he was hoping Saturday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

After three straight weeks of playing games in Oxford, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze seems to be looking forward to his first road game of the season Saturday at Tulane. It’s not that Freeze doesn’t like playing in front of a capacity crowd at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium like he did last week, he just feels like a little time away from campus, with his team having less distractions and a less hyped game, could serve as a positive.

In an effort to avoid a hangover from the 66-31 loss suffered at the hands of then No. 14 Texas this Saturday against Tulane, Freeze and his staff want the players to focus on making corrections from the Texas game but not dwell on the outcome. (September 18, 2012, Page 6)
