What worked and what worked less on road to 6-6

There’s a lot of excitement for what Hugh Freeze has accomplished in his first season as Ole Miss coach.

In reviving a team that had lost 14-straight SEC games upon his revival, a team with academic concerns and the natural suspicion among players as to where they fit in with a new coach — the ‘Buy-in’ Freeze called it on many occasions — some of the Freeze moves worked a lot, some of the to a lesser degree.

Now the Rebels stand 6-6, having left a couple of wins on the table. They do need a win in the bowl game to be able to say they finished with a winning record in Freeze’s first year.

Regardless, the improvement in the program through 12 games is quite impressive.

From the mother ship this morning, my column on what worked and what didn’t work as much in Freeze Year I.

  • 6-6 – it could have been 9-3, the loses to Texas A&M, Vandy and LSU should have been wins. I hope we see this record or better next season. AND O!O!! Yes!! the Rebels playing baseball at Omaha this coming season.
