Tuesday Practice Report

A few notes from today’s practice …

During the four media viewing periods Mike Hilton was getting some first-team reps at the boundary corner.

At the same time the field corner reps were being shared by Senquez Golson and freshman Bobby Hill.

In another personnel move, wide receiver Cody Core has been moved to safety. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze talks about that in this video:


The only change along the starting offensive line was senior Jared Duke being inserted at guard in place of the injured Aaron Morris. Not sure that’s how it will end up.

Serderius Bryant, as expected, was inserted in place of Denzel Nkemdiche at the Stinger linebacker, and with Hilton with the corners, freshman Tony Conner was running first team at Huskie.

Conner will start Saturday against Southeast Missouri State, and so will Chief Brown at Rover, defensive coordinator Dave Wommack says.

Hilton was running first team at corner at the end when we walked up too. Looks like they’re working hard to get him ready.

    All good points, I suppose I should rephrase that..I just wish that there was more balance in the west vs east matchups. Some teams get a break a play two of the weaker east teams and some have to play two of the better east teams. Luck of the draw, I guess.

      Right now, the only weak sister SEC East team appears to be Kentucky so I’m not so sure that any team from the west can be said to have two weak cross conference opponents. I guess that the jury is still out on Tennessee and Missouri so it could be argued that Alabama has two weak cross conference rivals but no one else looks like they get more than one break. There is a team or two that has to play two very tough cross conference rivals. I’m not sure how you could schedule to make it any more balanced and when the rotation is decided, there is no way to be certain just how easy or tough any given team is going to be.
