Mark Dodson didn’t thump his chest and say “Look at me,” after scoring two touchdowns from 60-plus yards out. He didn’t need to do that, it was Presbyterian.
But Ole Miss does need to spark its running game, and Dodson did ask for another evaluation from the coaching staff, reasonable request as the Rebels look for more consistency in the run game. That would go for not only Dodson but Jordan Wilkins as well. He also had a big day against Presbyterian.
Hugh Freeze said yesterday that looking at the Presbyterian game and trying to judge real improvement in the run was like comparing apples and oranges.
It is, but Freeze is a tinkerer. I would think evaluations on several fronts are going on during this open date.
