Whigham’s new role

Cameron Whigham might be the only returning senior starter in the country to lose his job to a true freshman.

He’s without a doubt the only returning starter who’s had to try and hold off the No. 1 recruit in the country.

Freshman Robert Nkemdiche will start for Ole Miss against Vanderbilt, but Whigham is expected to play a great deal, particularly since he can play either end spot.

From the Mother Ship today, Whigham’s new role

Whigham is known more as a run stopper, which is the less glamorous side of defensive end play.

One of the things he’s best known for also — at least among the beat writers — is the enthusiasm with which former coach Houston Nutt would pronounce his name. Text really doesn’t do it justice, and I don’t have an old audio clip handy.

    Buell Dawg, turf guy, cid r or whatever he’s calling his self is fine with his dirty MI$$ $TATE dawg$ paying players. Caught, convicted and got away with a hand slap. $6000 in payments. No he had rather keep repeating lies on Ole Miss.

    The truth is the most bitter pill to swallow. Ole Miss is morally and ethically bankrupt. Forsaken integrity and falsehood, all in the name of competition? And still no championships.

      I find it
      hilarious that someone who would go on an anonymous internet forum and denigrate18 year old boys that he doesn’t even know and knows practically nothing about with made up stories would hypocritically accuse someone else of “forsaking integrity” and “falsehood”… Oh, and how many championships has Cid Riley won? The answer tothat is pretty obvious.

    Who are these persons you mention? And why do you suspect that they are me? Preposterous, indeed!!

    I do not understand why people get so bothered by Cid. To me, he is a constant reminder of why it is so miserable to go the the school beneath us. It is bad enough to have to listen to the constant ringing of cowbells, but when they stop ringing you have to hear people who sound like Cid. Thanks Cid, keep it up. With every post you make people appreciate Ole Miss more and more. In fact the more I think about it, you are probably really an Ole Miss fan just trying to make State people look petty, stupid and dishonest. It really is working.
