For the first time since I began covering Ole Miss football for the Daily Mississippian, there seems to be a sense of calm around the program as the season approaches.

Sure, there are questions marks, and plenty of them.  The difference is that there isn’t any pressure on Hugh Freeze to deliver a multitude of wins in what is the first of a multi-year rebuild of a downtrodden program.

Take advantage of a Kentucky offense in flux

After facing a trio of explosive offenses the past three weeks in Alabama, Arkansas and Auburn, Ole Miss will see a Kentucky offense this Saturday that is in flux. Junior quarterback Morgan Newton suffered a high-ankle sprain in Saturday’s 28-16 loss to Mississippi State, so freshman Maxwell Smith will get the start at quarterback this Saturday for the Wildcats.

The past year for Ole Miss defensive end Kentrell Lockett has been a rollercoaster to say the least, but as the 2011 season approaches, he is ready to get back out in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for another year of SEC football.

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.

It’s football season, so let’s talk about football.

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.

Jeremiah Masoli’s story has been well-documented.

Jeremiah Masoli’s story has been well-documented.

From the transfer rumors in August, to his NCAA clearance the day before the Jacksonville State football game, to the 31-23 loss to Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl.

He was the story of the 2010 Ole Miss football season that ended 4-8. Masoli threw for 2,039 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and also rushed for 544 yards and six touchdowns in the fall.

With few options for the season, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt elected to bring in controversial Oregon transfer Jeremiah Masoli to add some depth to the position.

The band released its latest album “Georgia Warhorse” in late 2010 and is now celebrating with a quick February tour of the southeast before Grey starts his 16-city solo tour at the end of the month.

The 2010 Ole Miss football season did not go as planned. A team that UM coaches expected to win seven or eight games ended up going 4-8, including embarrassing losses at home to Football Championship Subdivision team Jacksonville State and perennial Southeastern Conference bottom feeder Vanderbilt.

Four-and-half years went by too fast. So fast that I have to recount the ups-and-downs I’ve experienced while at Ole Miss. I’ve seen some amazing things while at Ole Miss, some of them good and some of them bad.

Ole Miss senior defensive end Jerrell Powe and the rest of the football team have experienced defeat more often than not this year.

While Rebels fans might have thought that 2010 couldn’t get much worse, the Tennessee Volunteers handed Ole Miss the worst blow of their season in a 52-14 rout last Saturday.

Ole Miss gets a much-needed break from Southeastern Conference play this weekend after running the gauntlet of facing Alabama, Arkansas, and Auburn as Louisiana-Lafayette comes to town.  The Rebels come into the game short-handed with injuries at defensive end and linebacker, so Ole Miss fans should expect to see plenty of youth on the field Saturday night on defense. Here’s what Ole Miss needs to do to get back on the winning track:

The 2010 Ole Miss football season was not supposed to be this way. There have been the unexpected losses  – Jacksonville State and Vanderbilt – and the devastating personnel blows – the season-ending injury of star defensive end Kentrell Lockett and the removal of offensive lineman Rishaw Johnson from the team.

Many assumed Ole Miss would struggle Saturday against Southeastern Conference opponent Kentucky because key players -- defensive end Kentrell Lockett (out for the season), running back Enrique Davis, safety Johnny Brown, and wide receiver Lionel Breaux -- were as a result of injuries.

Jacksonville State 49 Ole Miss 48: 

The old saying goes: “You win some and you lose some.” But that saying couldn’t have been referring to a Division I program losing to a Football Championship Subdivision opponent. Well, on the opening weekend of college football it did, and the Rebels were plastered onto the television screens of ESPN viewers for all the wrong reasons. Ole Miss led by 21 points at the half, but the Rebels’ defense – supposedly one of the top units in the country – couldn’t stop Jacksonville State’s spread-option attack in the second half. The Gamecocks put the game into overtime in the final seconds, and sealed the colossal upset on a two-point conversion in the second overtime.
