Ole Miss changed things up on Monday, practicing at 5:30 a.m. instead of the usual afternoon practices. Head coach Hugh Freeze said he thought the practice went well.

“We slowed it down some today,” Freeze said. “I usually do two or three early mornings in the spring. It’s really a lot of teaching. We try to correct things and get a better understanding of what we’re doing.

One day after Athletics Director Pete Boone and Chancellor Dan Jones announced Houston Nutt’s tenure as Ole Miss head coach would end after this season’s Egg Bowl, some of the assistant coaches shared their thoughts on the turn of events.

“I was surprised and disappointed because I know the amount of time and effort that has been put into it, but, if you’ve been in the game long enough, you know these things happen,” Ole Miss defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix said after practice Tuesday.

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.

Repeat the quick start

This past week against Alabama, Ole Miss jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, thanks to a big pass play from Randall Mackey to Nick Brassell, followed by a short touchdown run from Jeff Scott. The Rebels must do the same this week against Arkansas, which has shown a propensity to come out sluggish and fall behind early in a few games. If Ole Miss wants to keep this game close, an early lead is a must.

Younger players must step up on defense

“We came out here and tried to correct from yesterday,” Nutt said. “I thought we got some things corrected."
