That should be the lesson that we take away from the heightened discussion of racism on our campus.
The Daily Mississippian, student leaders, and faculty and staff have all published or made outward statements to address the issue of race at the University of Mississippi. It has certainly been a topic of conversation in the past months coupled with the 50 years of integration, ESPN’s “30 for 30: Ghosts of Ole Miss,” and the recent issues erupting after the presidential election. The question is, what happens now?

The Peabody Award-winning ESPN documentary series “30 for 30” continues with tonight’s episode, “Ghost of Ole Miss.” The narrative, based on the long-format story by ESPN.com writer and Oxford resident Wright Thompson, who wrote and narrated the 1-hour documentary, explores the intersection in history of the undefeated 1962 Ole Miss football team and the integration of The University of Mississippi. Thompson worked with Peabody Award-winning director Fritz Mitchell on the project. Mitchell started his television career as a researcher for CBS Sports in 1982 and has produced other long-format documentaries for ESPN and PBS.

The Ole Miss Rebels are hoping to make history this Saturday, as they travel to Tuscaloosa to take on No. 1 Alabama (8:15 p.m. on ESPN). The Rebels (3-1) are 0-8 all time against the top-ranked team in the nation and trail in the head-to-head series against Alabama 48-9-2.

Ole Miss has lost eight straight games to Alabama, including 10 in a row on the road, last winning in Tuscaloosa in 1988. This game will also be the Rebels’ Southeastern Conference opener.

1. Road experience
 
This will be the first true road game of the year for Ole Miss (Sorry, Tulane doesn’t count). Bryant-Denny Stadium will be packed and loud for an 8:15 p.m. start on ESPN.
 
For Ole Miss, a team playing a large number of freshmen and redshirt freshmen, this will be its first taste of Southeastern Conference road play. Saturday’s game will allow younger players to get road jitters out before heading into conference road games that are winnable later in the season.

 In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian’s sports editor David Collier will rank the 14 Southeastern Conference teams. Opponents, game times and television networks are also included for each team.

 
1. Alabama (4-0, 1-0 SEC, 1st last week)
 
The Crimson Tide had another dominant outing last week, defeating Florida Atlantic 40-7. Alabama looks like the team to beat in the SEC.
 
This week: Ole Miss (3-1), 8:15 p.m., ESPN
 
2. LSU (4-0, 1-0 SEC, 2nd last week)
 
It was a lot closer than most anticipated, but LSU got a road win at Auburn 12-10. Offense once again appears to be a question mark going forward for the Tigers.
 

September 25, 2012

 
Ole Miss is the lone Southeastern Conference team that has yet to play a conference opponent. That changes Saturday, when the Rebels head to Tuscaloosa to take on the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN.

In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian’s sports editor David Collier will rank the 14 Southeastern Conference teams. Opponents, game times and television networks are also included for each team.

 
1. Alabama (3-0, 1-0 SEC, 1st last week)
 
If anyone wasn’t already impressed with Alabama in the first two weeks of the season, they have to be after the Crimson Tide trampled the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road last weekend 52-0. Although Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson was sidelined with a head injury, it’s still really impressive what Nick Saban and his squad have been able to accomplish in the first few weeks of the year.  
 
This week: Florida Atlantic (1-2), 4 p.m., PPV

Saturday was a big day on the Ole Miss campus. The Rebels played host to the Texas Longhorns under the bright lights of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. However, on Saturday morning the Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics was home to an event equally as special for Rebel football fans who remember the good ol’ days of Ole Miss football under head coach Johnny Vaught.

When Ole Miss announced the addition of Texas to the football schedule in August of 2007, Rebel and Texas fans couldn’t wait for the matchup. Here it is five years later, and the excitement level is at an unprecedented high.

In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian’s sports editor David Collier will rank the 14 Southeastern Conference teams. Opponents, game times and television networks are also included for each team.

 

1. Alabama (2-0, 1st last week)
 
The Crimson Tide steamrolled Western Kentucky to get the 35-0 win last weekend. It was a nice break for Alabama before they travel to Fayetteville, Ark. this week to face the Razorbacks. Despite the Arkansas upset last weekend, it should still be an electric atmosphere and the Crimson Tide's first real road test.
 
This week: at Arkansas (1-1), 2:30 p.m., CBS
 
2. LSU (2-0, 2nd last week)

Ole Miss’ true freshman safety Trae Elston has been suspended for Saturday’s primetime ESPN matchup against the No. 14 Texas Longhorns, the Southeastern Conference announced Tuesday. The league offices announced the suspension was the result of a flagrant hit Elston had on a UTEP wide receiver late in the fourth quarter in the Rebels’ 28-10 win over the Miners last Saturday.

The buzz around campus with still some time before game day is a first for head coach Hugh Freeze since taking over the reins of the Ole Miss football program. However, he is making sure that this game week is being treated like any other.

1. LSU (Last Season: 13-1, 8-0 SEC)
 
The Tigers will be in the national championship discussion again this year. LSU starts the season with a favorable schedule, and they get to play Alabama at home this year. The Tigers will once again rely on their defense, despite the loss of All-American corner Tyrann Mathieu. Zach Mettenberger will hope to give LSU a stronger presence at quarterback that they did not have a year ago.

The Daily Mississippian's baseball beat writer David Collier will give you and update on how the big league Rebels are doing so far. 

 

Chris Coghlan – Miami Marlins – Outfielder

Coming back from an injury that kept him out of action most of last year, Coghlan is struggling to return to the form that saw him win Rookie of the Year and make several plays that were featured on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Ten plays. He has made 19 appearances in games this season and is hitting .118 with two RBI.
