Grass, video boards, offensive linemen, starting quarterback, sort of, and more

It’s all here in our Mother Ship coverage of Media Monday at Ole Miss.

Bjork talks VHS grass, facilities and more

Kelly is starting QB unless Freeze changes his mind

Freeze says he’ll play 10 O linemen and will play them early Saturday

Also …

Freshman guard Javon Patterson will start, and defensive back Zedrick Woods will play, but beyond that there are not guarantees that other freshmen will play. That includes wide receivers DaMarkus Lodge and Van Jefferson.

Here’s my freshman look ahead from Sunday.

Freeze touched on Lodge and Jefferson again Monday. It’s still TBA on these guys. It’s not a talent issue but a numbers issue. How many times previously in Ole Miss history would it sign two of the top 15 receivers in the country in the same class and those guys not be called on for key roles as freshmen?

    An Under Armour All-America selection … Made two tackles and a half sack in the Under Armour All-America game … A consensus 4-star prospect by all the major recruiting services … Ranked the No. 111 recruit in the nation by and also a member of the Rivals250 … Listed as the nation’s No. 8 defensive tackle by ESPN.comand No. 17 by … Listed as the No. 12 strongside defensive end by … rates him as the 11th-best prospect in Louisiana.
