Waiting for college football almost over

By Parrish Alford Daily Journal Game week is here for college football. Seven days from now all questions won’t be answered, but fans...


By Parrish Alford Daily Journal OXFORD – Game week is here, but most Ole Miss freshmen are still a year away from seeing the Vaught-Hemingway Stadium field on Saturdays. Many seasons past the Rebels would be counting on young newcomers in some key roles. Beyond freshman guard Javon Patterson that’s not the case in 2015, […]

By Parrish Alford Daily Journal OXFORD – Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack says he isn’t concerned about depth at linebacker even with the tinkering that’s gone on to replace D.T. Shackelford. A sixth-year senior, Shackelford tied for third on the team with 65 tackles and added five tackles for loss plus a pair of […]

Daily Journal Marshall Henderson, the excitable and high-scoring guard who helped Ole Miss to the 2013 SEC basketball championship, will join the NBA’s Sacramento Kings training camp this fall. Henderson, who’ll turn 25 next month, went undrafted last year and has been playing overseas – Italy, Qatar and Iraq. Yes, Iraq – and he was […]

A day later, mixing class with study hall and weights and trying to remain focused for an afternoon practice was an eye-opening experience […]

By Don Hammack The Sun Herald (TNS) Brittney Reese was 22 the last time she was in Beijing. It was 2008, and she was there for her first Olympics. The former Ole Miss All-American is competing there again, starting today. The stage is almost as big, the World Championships, and she remembers that last time. […]

By Parrish Alford Daily Journal Six Ole Miss players and four Mississippi State players were recognized today on the preseason All-SEC team announced by the league’s coaches. Alabama and LSU led all schools, each with 10 players selected. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players. MSU quarterback Dak Prescott and defensive end […]

By Parrish Alford Daily Journal OXFORD – Robert Nkemdiche may be the face of the Ole Miss defense, but he’s not the only face. As coaches and players tout their depth, it begins up front. Nkemdiche is a returning All-American and a projected early first-round draft pick next spring. He may not come off the […]
