When the Ole Miss Rebels tangle with the top-ranked LSU Tigers on Saturday, it will not only be the last home game in the Houston Nutt era, but it will also be Senior Night for the team’s 13 seniors.
For two of those seniors, they will be going out playing against their hometown team. Running back Brandon Bolden calls Baton Rouge, La., home and defensive end Kentrell Lockett hails from nearby Hahnville, La.
Both players have seen the ups and downs of the Ole Miss football program in Nutt’s tenure, and both have played instrumental roles in some big wins.

Monday’s news of Ole Miss letting go of head football coach Houston Nutt affected more than just the families of everyone on the coaching staff. It also affected each one of the young men who give their best effort every Saturday: the players.

 

Monday’s news of Ole Miss letting go of head football coach Houston Nutt affected more than just the families of everyone on the coaching staff. It also affected each one of the young men who give their best effort every Saturday: the players.

As expected, the players took the news pretty tough, but once they got back to the practice fields, all they were thinking about was playing football.

The game of football consists of two teams battling it out on the field for four, 15-minute quarters to add up to a 60-minute game. However, the Ole Miss football team has yet to play a complete 60-minute game this season.

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.

October 30, 2011

AUBURN, Ala. — Despite trying to change things up this week, the result in this weekend’s Ole Miss game remained the same as the No. 23 Auburn Tigers scored 24 unanswered points in the second half to win 41-23 over the Rebels Saturday night on the Plains of Auburn. It was Ole Miss’ 11th straight Southeastern Conference loss, dating back to last season.

Coming off a deflating 52-7 loss to Alabama just a week ago, the Ole Miss Rebels (2-4, 0-3) look to bounce back this weekend against the visiting No. 10 Arkansas Razorbacks (5-1, 1-1).

Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt said it is important for his guys to keep fighting to have a chance against the Hogs, who are also No. 9 in the year’s first BCS Standings.

Bolden addresses and apologizes for suspension

The 2011 football season has been one of highs and lows for senior running back Brandon Bolden. After fracturing his ankle in the season opener against BYU, Bolden was sidelined for the Southern Illinois game. He then returned to the field before he was scheduled to and played sparingly against Vanderbilt and Georgia. The next week at Fresno State, Bolden had his best game of the season and rushed for two touchdowns.

Quarterbacks:

Through six games, Ole Miss has started three different quarterbacks, which is never a good thing. Junior Randall Mackey was in line to open the season as the starter, but was suspended for that game against BYU. He played parts of games against Southern Illinois, Vanderbilt and Georgia before earning the first start of his career against Fresno State, where he played well. He struggled this past week against Alabama, and he has plenty of areas to improve as the Rebels start the second half of the season.

The Ole Miss Rebels (2-3, 0-2 SEC) will face their toughest opponent to date when the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) rolls into Oxford this Saturd

The Ole Miss Rebels (2-3, 0-2 SEC) will face their toughest opponent to date when the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 SEC) rolls into Oxford this Saturday. 

Ole Miss will do so without senior running back Brandon Bolden, junior center A.J. Hawkins, senior offensive guard Alex Washington and sophomore wide receiver Philander Moore, who will all serve one-game suspensions for a violation of team rules, head coach Houston Nutt said Thursday.

When the final seconds ticked off the clock in the Rebels’ 38-28 win over Fresno State Saturday night, it marked the beginning of a two-week period before Ole Miss would hit the gridiron again.
And no one needed the bye week for rest and rehab more than senior running back Brandon Bolden.
Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt knows the importance of the bye week for guys like Bolden, who has been nursing a fractured ankle since the season opener against BYU.

Nutt sees improvement leading into bye week

After watching film of Saturday’s 38-28 win over Fresno State, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt said Saturday’s performance was just what the team needed.

“It is always good to win,” Nutt said during Monday afternoon’s press conference. “That was the medicine we have been needing.”

The offense, which has struggled all season long, was able to move the ball and put some points on the board Saturday, which Nutt was pleased to see.

FRESNO, Calif. -- Running back Jeff Scott rushed for a career-high 138 yards and scored two touchdowns, and senior running back Brandon Bolden added two touchdowns to lead the Ole Miss Rebels (2-3) to a 38-28 win against Fresno State here Saturday night at Jim Sweeney Field.
The Rebels capped their first trip ever to California by earning their first win of the season against an FBS-level team.

September 29, 2011

On Saturday, the Ole Miss Rebels (1-3, 0-2 SEC) will be in California to take on the Fresno State Bulldogs (2-2, 1-0 WAC) in hopes of putting together a full game and coming away with a much-needed win. The road trip is the furthest out west in program history.

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.

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.

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.”

Playing Vanderbilt, a team near the bottom of the SEC every year, seems like it would be a lucky draw, but somehow, the Commodores have had the last laugh in the series.

September 12, 2011

 

When senior running backs Brandon Bolden and Enrique Davis were ruled out for this past Saturday’s game against Southern Illinois, sophomore running back Jeff Scott knew he was going to get his shot.

He responded with what became his best game as an Ole Miss Rebel, rushing for 118 yards and three touchdowns, while also returning a punt for a touchdown.

Scott racked up over 200 total yards for the second time in his career, the first coming last season against LSU.

1. Slow down the Salukis’ run game.

Last season, Southern Illinois averaged 189.5 yards a game on the ground, and they bested that number in the season opener last week with 240 rushing yards in a 38-10 win over Southeast Missouri State last Saturday.

September 7, 2011

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.

September 5, 2011

The biggest stories from Saturday were the injuries to senior running backs Brandon Bolden and Enrique Davis. 

Nutt said Bolden had a small fracture in his ankle and would be in a walking boot for a couple of weeks, but he had no timetable for his return. Nutt was more optimistic on the status of Davis. He said he would not practice this week but he may be available for the game Saturday.

For the second day in a row, head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with his team’s performance on the practice fields.

“We had another good one,” Nutt said of Wednesday’s practice. “We have had two really good back-to-back days. I was excited about them pushing through it today, when it got a little hotter than it has the last two days.”

Nutt said that he is happy to see some of the older players pushing the freshmen.
