The Signature Win

Ed Orgeron never had one, though he came close to a couple. Houston Nutt’s came in his first season, at Florida, and nothing quite matched it in his two successful seasons, though the 2009 LSU win was pretty big.

While Hugh Freeze exceeded expectations in wins and losses a year ago, there wasn’t a single victory that earned “signature win” status.

That changed Saturday night when the Rebels defeated No. 6 LSU. LSU’s ranking adds to the signature status, but more to the point it was about the physical state of the Rebels, particularly on defense.

It was a signature win for Bo Wallace too, who has come under fire from some Ole Miss fans.

Here’s today’s column from The Mother Ship.

    Ed Orgeron and Houston Nutt big time losers along with Sloan at Ole Miss its does not matter which way the sports paint them, they were losers. Hugh Freeze has got something going at Ole Miss a winning spirit and a growing potential for big time winning program, of which the Rebels lack since the Johnny Vaught. days.. I feel it is good times a head for rebel football.
