Rebels’ new ‘spirit’

After the Alabama game defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche talked about the new “spirit” around the Ole Miss team, saying the Rebels believe they will win big games now.

He also said the defense was a little unfocused after the Rebels took the lead, and that allowed Alabama to approach the red zone with relative ease before Senquez Golson’s game-saving interception.

“We have a new spirit. We believed we could beat these guys, and we did,” he said.

    The difference with our coaching staff over other staffs are the half time adjustments. This was not the first time for this staff to be down at the half and make the adjustments that let the Rebels to dominate the second half. Freeze made one comment that defines this staff. He said that he saw something that he though would work near the end of the first half. We saw Bama have to burn two time outs and look confused because of the defensive and offensive adjustments. I hope that we now understand what we have in this staff.
