A tumultuous week that started with the firing of Head Coach Houston Nutt ended with a resounding thud this past Saturday as Ole Miss hit rock bottom in a 27-7 loss to Louisiana Tech.

Ole Miss offensive coordinator David Lee called it “a living nightmare out there.”

Many wondered how the traumatic and chaotic week leading up to the game would affect the team, and it was clear the Rebels’ focus was off.

Just when things seem like they can’t get any worse, they do. That’s not to say it won’t get even worse because it can with unanimous No. 1 LSU and in-state rival Mississippi State coming up to finish out the Houston Nutt era in Oxford. 

This past Monday, Ole Miss (2-8, 0-6 SEC) fired Nutt but also announced he would coach the remaining three games.

However, the football team has yet to play a complete 60-minute game this season, according to Ole Miss coaches.

Saturday’s 41-23 loss at Auburn saw the Rebels do the same thing they have done all season: Lose the game in the second half. Ole Miss coaches and players have all tried to change up halftime routines, but nothing has worked.

This weekend the Ole Miss Rebels (2-5, 0-4 SEC) will head to the Plains to take on the No. 23 Auburn Tigers (5-3, 3-2 SEC) in hopes of breaking a 10-game SEC losing streak that stretches back to last season’s 42-35 win over Kentucky. Saturday will be the Rebels first road game since traveling to Fresno earlier this month, where Ole Miss came out with a 38-28 win. The atmosphere inside of Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium will be a whole different animal to overcome.

While Ole Miss fell yet again Saturday, this time in a 29-24 loss to Arkansas, the Rebels’ starting quarterback Randall Mackey played the best he ever has in a Rebel uniform.

The redshirt junior threw for 218 yards on 18 of 30 passing with two touchdowns while going for 30 rushing yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He also, for the most part, avoided mistakes, taking just three sacks and throwing just one interception.

The two teams played last season in Oxford as the Rebels took care of the Bulldogs 55-38, led by senior running back Brandon Bolden’s 228 rushing yards and three total touchdowns in the game.

Lee sees improvements

While the win-loss result wasn’t any better, Ole Miss offensive coordinator David Lee said he saw improvement on offense Saturday against Georgia.

“We are showing improvement; we are getting better,” he said. “Execution is getting better, we are staying on our blocks longer and we are starting to finish blocks. All those things are really encouraging.

After an interesting week filled with rumors, speculation and distraction following the loss to Vanderbilt, the effort by the team improved, but the results were not much better in the 27-13 SEC home-opening loss to the Georgia Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1 SEC).

Ole Miss (1-3, 0-2 SEC) ran two trick plays, one a double reverse pass out of the “Wild Rebel” formation and another a reverse handoff on a punt return, that both went for touchdowns.

Put Vanderbilt behind them
It’s easy to let a terrible loss like Vanderbilt linger, but the Rebels can not afford for that to happen if they want to turn around their season. After the loss to Vanderbilt last season, the Rebels were 1-2 and struggled to a 4-8 record. However, in head coach Houston Nutt’s first year, Ole Miss was 2-2 after a loss to Vanderbilt, but surged to finish 9-4, and winning the Cotton Bowl.

Lee makes changes

After taking Ole Miss nearly two full games before their offense saw the end zone for the first time against a FBS opponent, the Rebels hit the playbook this week, but this time to take out plays.

“I think we just cut out 30 percent of our plays and eliminated one protection totally,” first-year offensive coordinator David Lee said after Tuesday’s practice.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Outplayed. Outcoached. Outmatched.

The Rebels (1-2, 0-1 SEC) are 1-9 in their last 10 conference games, while head coach Houston Nutt’s hot seat gets hotter and rumors swirl about his uncertain future in Oxford.

“Looked really bad,” Nutt said. “It’s a little bit of everything. I never felt that way on the sideline. Just didn’t feel right.

“We just didn’t have that confidence. We didn’t make first downs and move the ball like we normally do. That was a first.”

To throw salt on the Rebel’s wounds for Saturday’s 14-13 loss to BYU, the Rebels lost both of their senior running backs in starter Brandon Bolden and his backup Enrique Davis.

Bolden’s injury looked to be extremely serious and possibly season-ending, but Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt got some good news Monday when he learned that Bolden will likely be out only three to four weeks.

In a word, last year was a disappointment for Ole Miss athletics. 

From the start, with a 49-48 double-overtime loss to Jacksonville State, Rebel fans left stadiums and arenas on this campus and across the South shaking their heads in unison. There’s enough blame to go around, from the coaches to the players to the fans, but it’s time to move on. With the start of 2011, there is reason for optimism.

The Rebels hope to get off to a better start this season than they did last season, when the Jacksonville State Gamecocks shocked the world in a 49-48 double-overtime win over Ole Miss, but the task will not be easy.

This is because Ole Miss will welcome the Cougars of Brigham Young University to open up the 2011 football season with a non-conference matchup.

Going into the Ole Miss football team’s second scrimmage of the fall camp Saturday, there were several key factors that had yet to be determined.
However, no question loomed larger than who will be the starting quarterback when the season begins.
“All three of them can move the team,” Rebels’ offensive coordinator David Lee said of the quarterbacks. “All three of them can play and all three of them have something they do very well and have a facet to them that can help us.

Wednesday’s practice belonged to the defense.

Thursday could not have been any different, with the offense showing out. Ole Miss Coach Houston Nutt was pleased with the offensive performance after practice.

“I thought we competed really hard today,” Nutt said. “We got into some tight red zone today and guys rolled off the ball.”

After spending a few days talking about the freshmen, Ole Miss head football coach Huston Nutt opened up about the three-way quarterback battle.

After spending a few days talking about the freshmen, Ole Miss head football coach Huston Nutt opened up about the three-way quarterback battle.

Nutt said he hoped the battle between sophomore Barry Brunetti and juniors Randall Mackey and Zack Stoudt would be settled in the next week or two.

"What we are hopefully going to do is get this thing situated here within the next 10 to 12 days, but we just can't put a time table on it," Nutt said of the quarterback battle. "We have to do it when we know that's the right guy.
