1. How much does Bo Wallace play?
 
Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): To me, it depends on how the game goes. If Alabama jumps out to a big lead early, and the Crimson Tide defense is teeing off on Wallace, it would make sense to limit his playing time to make sure he’s healthy for potentially winnable games coming up on the schedule.

Despite only seeing the field a few times a game, Ole Miss’ senior punter Tyler Campbell is one of the most important players on the team. While special teams may not receive the glory like offense and defense do, Campbell knows it is still an important part of the game.

“In the mindset of just the general game, everyone knows it is important,” Campbell said. “It is a third of the game — offense, defense and special teams.”

Ole Miss’ Tyler Campbell has been named to the preseason watch list for the 2012 Ray Guy Award, which honors the nation’s top collegiate punter. The list of 25 candidates was announced Wednesday by the Augusta Sports Council.

Brent and Jennifer Johnson sued Burgess for allegedly allowing his 10 to 15 pit bulls run free in their neighborhood, according to the Associated Press. The Johnsons claimed the dogs killed several cats and chickens and were aggressive toward children in the neighborhood. Though the lawsuit was settled outside of court, Oxonians were exposed to some questions concerning their own pets.

Ole Miss held its second 5:30 am practice of spring this past Thursday morning, during which the Rebel offense had arguably its best day.
For most of the spring, the defense under defensive coordinator Dave Wommack has consistently dominated the offense in team drills. That was not the case on Thursday, as the offense installed more of the playbook and used it to their advantage.

Enter Pierce Burton. 

The 6’7,” 290-pound offensive tackle from City College of San Francisco signed with Ole Miss over Florida and was one of Hugh Freeze’s first big statement wins on the recruiting trail.

There’s a good reason a lot of romantic comedies somehow involve Valentine’s Day. Whether people describe their situation as single, engaged, in a relationship or “it’s complicated,” the way most people treat the holiday is a little entertaining.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Eli Manning is elite, for sure. A king of comebacks, too. And far, far more than Peyton’s little brother now.

They say the college football season never really ends. When the games are over and a champion is crowned, coaching searches and recruiting take center stage in college football news. However, recruiting and the way it is currently handled by all parties involved makes it completely irrelevant.

They say the college football season never really ends. When the games are over and a champion is crowned, coaching searches and recruiting take center stage in college football news. However, recruiting and the way it is currently handled by all parties involved makes it completely irrelevant.

First off, player ratings make no sense and do not really capture a recruit’s true potential. If you don’t believe me, let’s look at past Ole Miss players as incoming recruits. Some of the Rebs’ best players were not highly rated or recruited.

Austin Miller: What are your overall thoughts on this year’s Ole Miss recruiting class?

Keith Niebuhr: It’s always difficult when you have a new staff come in and have that kind of turnover. They lost some crucial time from when it was known that Nutt wasn’t going to be back, to the time the new staff was put into place. This group did a good job, first and foremost, of securing the recruits they already had. That’s the key. So you’re almost starting from scratch. Then they went out and have gotten a few more guys. It’s not huge in numbers, but it’s high in quality. And now they land Channing Ward, which was huge. That’s a big prize in Mississippi, so that’s significant.
