Rebels Arrive

Ole Miss arrived at the Hilton Riverside this afternoon. Players are having a team meal right now with meetings set for seven.

A few minutes before six about 20 Ole Miss players were still making their way to the Hilton Riverside. About six were in the air with planes about to land.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze felt like everything was going OK from a travel standpoint.

Here’s Freeze:

Freeze said he was going to analyze everything about last year’s unsuccessful bowl experience and see what things needed to change from a preparation standpoint.

There are some advantages to being the home team, he says, in the sense that you get a little more control over your schedule.

Mike Hilton and Evan Engram also spoke, but nobody shed much light on how things might have changed in preparation.

Both Freeze and Hilton expressed a lot of confidence in freshman Breeland Speaks who will have an increased role on the defensive line since the suspension of Robert Nkemdiche was announced.

Here’s Hilton:

Here’s Engram:

    Good start on the Sugar Bowl coverage PA. Are you happy that you get to cover the Rebels back in your old “Stomping Grounds” or would you prefer another Bowl location?

      ripleyreb, PA over there in N.O. living it up and letting his hair down deserve this occasion he has worked hard all year. And now another 5-star has turned away from OM and Oxford: With his final decision on where to attend college looming, five-star
      linebacker Lyndell Wilson has narrowed his final options to three SEC
      schools: Alabama, Florida and Georgia. The 2016 Under Armour
      All-American announced his finalists via Twitter: Sorry to say but Ole Miss is peaked and on the way down in 5-star recruitment. A loss of this Sugar Bowl and Cal bell will be ringing in Mississippi. Happy New Years to you Repleyreb , PA,K-B and Cal Bell don’t forget Black Eyed Peas and Hog Jowls in your menu for New Years Day.

      Sure hope Lyndell decides to join the Gator team who has the best SEC defense in the SEC and country
