  • Alabama CAN be us by 90, even if we don’t fumble. Still in the wilderness. Auburn looked much improved on both sides of the ball last night but LSU looked very human.maybe the Texas game prepared us for SEC play more than North Texas, Washington, and others.

  • Ghost of Col. Reb

    What I’m seeing is an improved team from last year. We may still be in the woods, but we are fighting like hell to get to the road. I’m still seeing some bad calls on defense that are going to hurt badly when we begin SEC play. On offense, ball protection has to be a priority, priority one!

  • Parrish Alford

    I listened to LSU-Auburn driving back last night. Without seeing the game it seemed more like LSU not playing well, Mettenberger distracted in first road start, than incredible improvement in Auburn from one week to the next. Probably Auburn did improve some and was also playing with a lot of emotion.

  • In all my years following Ole Miss Rebel football I do not remember that they have ever had 90 points scored against them not even 70 in a game This young Rebel defense is inexperienced and under size but they have a strong heart and desire to be a winner, don’t count them out. I don’t think the Red tide will intimidate them very much. Sorry Bama sympathizers, I don’t see your Alabama team as good as the Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M or Gators.

  • Mantachie

    we are a long way from being back but i am optimistic, we are putting up points and at times have flashes of good things on defense. 3 wins and points on the board are a far cry from last year and we are loaded with young players. I like where we are headed…

  • Mantachie

    I also will take freeze winning with iittle talent. Nutt coached with good talent those first two years and then it fell a part. can you imagine if freeze inherited the talent nutt did. Dexter in his system, power running with Bolden, even a fullback like Jason cook could be awsome in this system. If we can win 3 with no talent what will it be with another year or two with recriuts to fill current needs

  • Alabama will beat Texas in the BCS title game by 14+ points. Not sympathetic, just watching talent level, execution, quality of team. Alabama could not throw a single pass against us next week and win by 40. They will probably tuna nd pass at will, and win by as many as they want. Alabama would beat Florida by 30. They have more talent on the sideline than we’ve had in 4 years. I agree, Freeze with some talent may be dangerous, in a good way.

  • Wow, Red Tide is surging!!!

  • As Matt points out with a great degree of clarity, Ole Miss is a heavy
    under dog this week. At this stage of the program under Freeze, it’s not
    about winning or losing this game. It’s about leaving the game with
    pride, confidence and healthy bodies in tact. It’s about what type of
    success an Ole Miss offense that has been pretty good at times can have
    against that defense. It’s about whether the Ole Miss defense can show
    improvement from the Texas game. It’s about not losing 52-7, and if you
    do lose 52-7 about getting back on track and breaking the SEC losing
    streak against an opponent you will match up better with later this
    season.

  • Some Rebel fans and now the Tupelo sports media see them dead on arrival when they met the Red Tide this week-end. The game must be played and that Ole Miss Rebel football team will be in the arena and ready for action. Count on this.

  • Archaeo

    Should be an interesting game vs Bama and hopefully the Rebels will hang in there better than Bama’s foes so far this year. One thing that I did notice while watching the UM-Tulane game that was nice was that Brunetti and another player (didn’t catch which one) were talking about about running routes after coming to the sidelines. That was something that I hadn’t seen much of the last two years. You can see a lot of progress with this team in all the little things they are doing or trying to do.

  • What PA is saying without saying is Vegas has the Tide as 31.5 point favorites. Anyone recall the odds against Floorsa back in 2008???? Seems familiar, but not a likely similarity in result.
