Recapping a couple of football reads

From the In Case You Missed It Department, a couple of football reads from the last week.

Here is Brandon Speck’s account of the Florence, Ala., quarterback Kendrick Doss’ verbal commitment to Ole Miss last week. Doss pulled the trigger while with his team in Tupelo for a 7-on-7 national qualifier. …

Also, I’d been working on this Dave Wommack feature for a while, and we were waiting for a good summer day — meaning lots of space — to get it in the paper.

When Hugh Freeze was hired it was for offense and points. Defense isn’t exactly forgotten, but if you’re watching from outside Mississippi your first mental picture of Ole Miss football probably has something to do with the up-tempo offense.

That anonymity, as much as you can get in SEC football, fits in with Dave Wommack’s personality. His group made significant strides last season particularly after the Texas game.

Here’s a look at Wommack, a guy who’s been around the block a few times.

    From what I have seen and heard the SEC is going to be excited this season, Alabama, Tex A&M and LSU going to have competition, from Georgia, So Carolina, Gator much improved Gator could be the surprise team of all, and yes Ole MIss with that top notch recruitment to help with an establish winner from last season could be surprising as well. Not in Archie/Vaught era but they are coming on i think Rebels with a 7-5 season with another bowl trip.
