UGA rout a return to reality for OM Rebs

COLUMN: ATHENS, Ga. — If Hugh Freeze does end up winning coach of the year honors in the Southeastern Conference, it will be for a “remarkable” turnaround and not a “miraculous” one. (more…) (November 5, 2012, Page 1B)

Hugh Freeze as SEC Coach of the Year is not so unbelievable

COLUMN: It’s a splendid month of incredulity around Oxford. Football fans embittered by Houston Nutt’s implosion are still rational enough to know how irrational they’re sounding: Are we really talking about bowl eligibility for the Ole Miss Rebels? (more…) (November 1, 2012, Page 9)

LSU, Vanderbilt games are must-see television Saturday for Rebel fans

COLUMN: Bye week? That’s heresy. There’s plenty of football for Ole Miss fans this weekend, specifically two games that any self-respecting Rebel supporter should watch every single snap of. (more…) (October 18, 2012, Page 9)

Ole Miss fan support at VHS still a winless effort

COLUMN: The bathrooms on the press box level of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium weren’t functional at halftime of Saturday’s Ole Miss football game against Texas A&M, so I rode the elevator down to the ground floor to use the facilities with 60,000-odd folks braving the unseasonably cold and unfortunately wet night. (more…) (October 11, 2012, Page 9)

Now it gets interesting: Texas A&M a real measure of the new OM

COLUMN: At 3-2 through five games, everything’s gone according to the script for Ole Miss, no matter what script you’re working from. Pundits and fans who predicted results as varied as 3-8 to 7-5 had the Rebels losing to national powers Texas and Alabama, and taking care of business against inferior non-conference competition in Central Arkansas, UTEP and Tulane. (more…) (October 4, 2012, Page 9)

Is going all out at ‘Bama best for Rebels?

COLUMN: Bo Wallace has a bad shoulder and has been limited in practice this week. The fact he’s Ole Miss’ best and most complete quarterback for head coach Hugh Freeze’s system is reason enough to think that the coaching staff might let him rest a while (or an entire game) to preserve Wallace for the rest of the year. (more…) (September 28, 2012, Page 7A)

UT game shows OM defense will be longer, harder renovation project

COLUMN: To take nothing away from Hugh Freeze’s innovative signature on the spread passing attack, defenses are what the SEC’s unprecedented run of BCS titles have been built on. On a lesser level, that holds true for almost every successful 9 or 10 win campaign for a conference team. (more…) (September 20, 2012, Page 9)

Rebels have nothing to lose against Texas, which could make them very dangerous

COLUMN: No one on the red and blue side of this weekend’s sideshow of a football game is going to admit it’s a mulligan, but in the grand scheme, it is.

Ole Miss enters a game with Big 12 power Texas with virtually nothing to lose. The Rebels have matched their win total of 2011 before September 15, and having been tabbed as likely the worst team of 2012 in the SEC before the year started, no one expected — or expects — them to beat the ‘Horns. (more…) (September 13, 2012, Page 10)

If Rebels can win more than the half, they’ll win Saturday

COLUMN: It had been a parade of symbolic wins for Hugh Freeze, at least up until last Saturday. Winning back enthusiasm for the Ole Miss program by sharing his own genuine love of the university when he was first hired. Winning the war of academic attrition after he inherited a huge amount of eligibility issues. Winning the future by installing an aggressive and downright fun offense for fans. (more…) (September 6, 2012, Page 9)

When losses come in 2012 remember Freeze has already won

COLUMN: Ah, yes: the reliable feeling of dread.

That unmistakable harbinger of doom sneakily tagging along as that creepy, uninvited plus-one when Ole Miss football arrives at our door each year. (more…) (August 30, 2012, Page 9)
