Happy New Year.
From the Mother Ship this morning, my column on the Rebels’ 25-17 Music City Bowl win over Georgia Tech and why that was important for the journey discussion.
It comes with a correction. The column states that Ole Miss is 5-11 in SEC play the last two seasons. I miscalculated while riding down the Trace. That record is actually 6-10. The Rebels defeated Auburn, Arkansas and Mississippi State last season, then Vanderbilt, LSU and Arkansas this season.
A 6-10 mark over two seasons isn’t one to be celebrated in most situations, but it is at Ole Miss. I don’t think Hugh Freeze got enough credit for the turnaround in 2012 given the state of the program upon his arrival. He’s in the process of changing those expectations, though, as the column states.
