Strength Coach Paul Jackson tweeted this picture out to show off some of the work that the Rebels have been doing in the weight room. From left to right: Aaron Garbutt, Denzel Nkemdiche, and Chief Brown. Supposedly, Coach Jackson has been fostering a more competitive environment in the weight room, which is something that might have been missing under the previous regime. Regardless, Garbutt looks much bigger than I remember. Huge guy is huge.

Dates of Open Spring Practices


Via The Enemy of the Cup: "Fans will get five chances to watch the Hugh Freeze-coached Rebels before the Grove Bowl. The spring schedule, released today, includes this pertinent information: March 23 — First day (open) March 24 — Open March 25 — Open March 31 — Open April 14 — Open April 21 — Grove Bowl (1 p.m.) Times for other practices have not been announced. Basically, weekend practices are open and midweek practices are closed. Which makes some sense."


We're Better Than This. Let's Keep It That Way.

[ED: Frontpag'd. Definitely worth a read and definitely something to think about.] I don't like to post a lot of negative stuff here on the Cup. I always feel that people (read: other fans) look...

YouTube Video: Pastor Dan Mullen


On National Signing Day, Dan Mullen made some remarks that seemed to be a thinly veiled shot at Coach Freeze: "A lot of people are going to get up and preach about what their program is and when they get there, the guys all of the sudden realize it is something very different. They get up and preach but yet they don't live it. These young men had the opportunity to not just hear us preach about our program, but see that we actually live it." A YouTube video, posted on the Friday after NSD, has taken this speech and integrated some risqué footage of the Bulldogs' locker room celebration after the Egg Bowl. While I don't think the locker room celebrations of eighteen-year-olds should be taken seriously (and I don't give a shit about "foul" language), this video does show to some extent how Mullen's remarks mostly consist of hollow dipshittery meant to get under the skin of Ole Miss fans. If you hate Dan Mullen, you'll enjoy the video.

Ole Miss Extends Offer to QB Jalen Whitlow


Jalen Whitlow, a 3 star QB/Athlete out of Prattville Alabama, has been offered a scholarship to play football at Ole Miss. Whitlow (6'3" 200 lbs) is currently an Arkansas State commitment, however his stock has been on the rise as of late. It's believed that it's not too late for Ole Miss to convince Whitlow (and his 4.55 forty time) to come to Oxford.

Coach Freeze Gets His First 2013 Commitment


Davion Johnson, a 6'4" 315 lb. offensive tackle out of Byhalia, MS, committed to Ole Miss on Sunday and became Coach Freeze's first commitment for the 2013 class. Johnson also had an offer from MSU, and several other SEC schools were already showing a lot of interest, such as Alabama. "Something special is going on at Ole Miss," Johnson said after he made his decision. It is believed by many that Johnson's commitment could have an impact with several other 2013 Mississippi recruits, such as Antonio Connor - a highly-touted Safety from South Panola.

Robert Nkemdiche Interview


The link is to an interview with Robert Nkemdiche on Fox Sports South. Nkemdiche, a five star defensive line recruit for the class of 2013 (and the brother of current Ole Miss Rebel Denzel Nkemdiche), lists his top five schools in the interview. Just before the 2:00 mark he states that, as of right now, his top five consists of Alabama, LSU, Oregon, Ole Miss, and Florida State. Obviously, Robert signing up to be a Rebel would be huge, but just getting this guy to visit our campus will be a good thing for Ole Miss.

How 2011 All-SEC Team Ranked as Recruits


This is an article by ESPN's Chris Low that examines the current All-SEC team and looks back at how they were ranked in the crootin' rankings. As Low points out, many of the players on this year's All-SEC squad were ranked fairly accurately when they were coming out of high school, which usually isn't the case. Generally these articles are a good reminder about how flawed recruiting rankings can be. On the same note, if you really want to see a great example of how rankings, stars, and recruiting conjecture are sometimes taken too seriously, click this link. That link is to Nutt's heralded signing class of 37 in 2009. You know, back when we thought Pat Patterson would be the next Jerry Rice, Darius Barksdale was going to tear it up in the SEC, and Jamar Hornsby was just a troubled young man who was coming to Ole Miss to get some heppin'. It is also a good reminder that every recruiting class has its bright spots, such as D.T. Shackleford, Mike Marry, and Charles Sawyer.

Robert Conyers Commits to Ole Miss


Robert Conyers, a 6'5" 277 lb. offensive tackle out of Miami, Florida, committed to Ole Miss on Saturday while on an unofficial visit. Conyers, a three-star recruit and top target of Matt Luke, had offers from 10 BCS schools (including Vanderbilt, Illinois, and Michigan State). The commitment came on a day when Coach Freeze and his staff had decided to part ways with the previously committed Jake Meador, an offensive tackle that had recently softened on his commitment. It is believed that neither Meador nor the Ole Miss coaching staff were convinced that his skills matched up with Coach Freeze's offensive philosophy. Conyers will return to Oxford for his official visit on January 27 with several other key recruits, a visit in which he could help influence other top Ole Miss targets as they take their final visit before National Signing Day.

Enemy of the Cup: Opposing coaches sold on Bo Wallace


"Three coaches from the Mississippi community college ranks all agreed on this: Bo Wallace has the tools to compete in the SEC." In this article, Kellenberger asked a few opposing community college coaches what they thought about Wallace. In summary: They think he's good.

Now that's what a classy billboard/marketing ploy looks like.

Report: Dan Werner Named Co-Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach

13 is reporting that Dan Werner has been named the Co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach. Welcome back, Dan.

The Bowl may not have turned out the way Arkansas State fans wanted it to, but I'll be damned if one of them didn't have the best fan sign I've ever seen.

Ole Miss Hires Wesley McGriff


Wesley McGriff, formerly Vanderbilt’s secondary coach and co-recruiting coordinator, is headed to Ole Miss to serve as cornerbacks coach and co-defensive coordinator.

This is a picture of the brand new billboard next to the Wendy's on Jackson Avenue in Oxford. Lust for Jeremy Liggins much? Seriously, stop putting up the billboards. Wouldn't that money be better spent on a competent grounds crew for the junction or some shirts for your fans that don't say "Bust Nutt Doggy Style"?

Ole Miss Signs New Agreement with Nike


Ole Miss: Is It In You? Wait that's not right....

I don't know about y'all, but I think Channing Ward looks pretty damn good with a fin up.

Channing Ward Commits to Ole Miss


As expected, Defensive End Channing Ward committed to Ole Miss during the Under Armour All-America Game Thursday night. Obviously, anytime you get a commitment from the #1 player in your state (according to Rivals), it's a big deal. Good decision, Channing. And kudos to you, Coach Freeze.

I’tavius Mathers


The article says he decommitted, but others are reporting that he is still committed to Ole Miss and just looking around. Regardless, it looks like it's a race between Ole Miss, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt to acquire the services of the four star running back from Tennessee. Many of us have backed up the retaining of Derrick Nix as RB coach by mentioning that he's been a successful recruiter in the past. Hopefully, Nix will be able to prove us right by convincing Mathers that his decision to commit to Ole Miss was the correct choice.

Hugh Freeze Retains RB Coach Derrick Nix


For anyone who missed this, Derrick Nix was retained by Hugh Freeze as the Ole Miss running backs coach. Nix was a good recruiter for us in the past, and our O-Line has been so terrible over the past two years that I think it's hard to blame him for our recent running game woes. The biggest thing about this move is that many Ole Miss fans believe (myself included) that it could help us keep I'Tavius Mathers, an important running back commitment. Mathers committed to Houston Nutt back in August, but he opened his recruitment back up after Nutt's firing. Hopefully, Nix will be able to solidify our standing with Mathers, who could come in and contribute immediately because of our lack of depth at the position.

Report: Paul Jackson Hired as Ole Miss Strength Coach


Via the twitters, is reporting that current Southern Miss strength and conditioning coach Paul Jackson has been hired for the same position at Ole Miss. Before going to USM, Jackson was an assistant at LSU under their current strength coach, Tommy Moffitt, who is recognized as one of the best strength coaches in the country.

Melvin Harris Transferring to North Alabama


I have no doubt that there are some high points left in Melvin's football career. Seriously though, good luck Melvin.

MSU Takes Shit on Field; Sportswriter Takes Shit on MSU


After what can best be described as a sixty minute game of ass-grab that nobody in particular seemed to enjoy, many sportswriters took to analyzing said ass-grabbing. Matt Zemek of College Football News captured the insipidness of the event with a few paragraphs that can be found at the above link. Here's a sample: "Let’s lay it on the line here: If Jim Grobe coached Mississippi State and Dan Mullen coached Wake Forest, this would have been a Bulldog blowout. Instead, Mullen was on the MSU sideline, making a gul-darned fool of himself by protesting the calls that the Mid-American Conference crew got right." (Note: When you click the link, scroll down until you see By Matt Zemek. His few paragraphs are under his name.)

ESPN pieces together parts of 2012 SEC schedule


Though the SEC has still not released its 2012 schedule, I've seen a couple of reports that are trying to project what that schedule will look like. A couple of months ago, Mr SEC projected, according to the leaks they were hearing, that Ole Miss would have A&M and Missouri on the schedule instead of Georgia and Florida. Apparently, the leaks that ESPN's Chris Low has been hearing have Ole Miss playing at Georgia, as originally scheduled, and hosting Texas A&M instead of Florida. Regardless, one thing that is certain is that Vanderbilt will be moved to later in Ole Miss' season than it has been in recent years, which is perfectly fine with me. The article states that the finalized SEC schedule will be released "sometime after Christmas."

JUCO Offensive Tackle picks Ole Miss over Florida


Pierce Burton, a three star JUCO offensive tackle prospect that visited both Ole Miss and Florida last weekend, committed to the Rebels on Wednesday. His other offers included Florida, Kentucky, Texas Tech, West Virginia, and several others. It was believed that Burton favored several other schools, including Florida, over the Rebels, but Freeze iced Burton's interest in schools not named Ole Miss. Burton has the size and experience to be our starting left tackle of the future so this signing should be considered Freeze's biggest recruiting coup thus far.
