In this week’s edition of Four Downs, The Daily Mississippian football beat writer Matt Sigler, sports editor David Collier and managing editor Austin Miller answer four questions regarding the week’s matchup.

 
1. How much will the long layoff effect Ole Miss?
 
Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2): I think the long layoff will show early in the game, but eventually, I believe Ole Miss will settle in and not have any problems getting things back on track.

One of the three newest residence halls on The University of Mississippi campus will have a new name in the coming weeks after the state college board of trustees approved the university’s request.

One of the three newest residence halls on The University of Mississippi campus will have a new name in the coming weeks after the state college board of trustees approved the university’s request.

North Ridge, one of the three new freshman residence halls that were built within the last year, will be renamed after 1937 Ole Miss graduate Lucian Minor.

“We are currently in the process of scheduling a dedication ceremony,” said Larry Sparks, vice chancellor of administration and finance at Ole Miss. “Also during this time, the exact name of the dorm will be nailed down.”

When I sat down to write this column, my last one for The Daily Mississippian, I thought it would be easy. Graduation for me is right around the corner.

I stepped on to the Ole Miss football beat for The Daily Mississippian at the beginning of the 2010 football season and immediately realized that the Ole Miss football program, which had won 18 games and back-to-back Cotton Bowls over the past two seasons, was headed in a drastically different direction.

The Rebels lost 49-48 that day in double overtime against Jacksonville State, and my first game on the beat was the beginning of the downfall of head coach Houston Nutt.

On Nov. 6, 2010, Ole Miss junior offensive lineman Derrick Wilson found out that his mother, Jelks Wilson, had been diagnosed with cancer.

Wilson was at Horn Lake High School at the time and wanted to go see his mother when he got the call.

“When I found out, I wanted to go home, but my mother called and told me to stay at school,” Wilson said.

As time went on, Derrick’s mother went through chemotherapy treatments.

Well, it’s that time of year again. With less than two weeks left in the semester, I know I am not alone in saying that the mounting pressures of final papers, assignments and exams have pushed me to the ultimate level of procrastination.
I, for one, have terrible self-control when it comes to Internet browsing. In past years I have stooped so low as to have my friends change my Facebook password in order to keep me from wasting time on the site. While I have yet to resort to that this semester, I have a feeling the breaking point is getting close.

Every night before bed 21- year old Jori LaVoy washes her face, brushes her teeth and then proceeds to do something that few other college students do- she takes first of 13 pills to control her ulcerative colitis.

 

For many students, college is an important first step in growing up, experiencing freedom and learning how to manage one’s time. For LaVoy, however, that transition was made much harder when she was diagnosed with a severe case of ulcerative colitis during the fall of her junior year.

Dear Editor,

I write in hopes that the new committee on race relations announced just before the Thanksgiving break will not simply investigate the “events” and “climate” here at Ole Miss, but also think about exactly why some students still use the “n-word.”

That should be the lesson that we take away from the heightened discussion of racism on our campus.
The Daily Mississippian, student leaders, and faculty and staff have all published or made outward statements to address the issue of race at the University of Mississippi. It has certainly been a topic of conversation in the past months coupled with the 50 years of integration, ESPN’s “30 for 30: Ghosts of Ole Miss,” and the recent issues erupting after the presidential election. The question is, what happens now?

For the first time since 2009, Ole Miss will be playing in a bowl game. The bowl berth was even sweeter this season because the Rebels (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) captured it on the last game of the year against in-state rival No. 25 Mississippi State (8-4, 4-4 SEC), with a 41-24 win Saturday night in the annual Egg Bowl.

Along with Delta State and Mississippi University for Women, The University of Mississippi will begin extending waivers for out-of-state fees next year to high-achieving students.

Out-of-state students seeking to have their tuition reduced will be required to apply for aid administered on the basis of merit by the university's Office of Financial Aid.

Laura Diven-Brown, financial aid director at Ole Miss, said that decisions regarding the amount of aid given to reduce out-of-state tuition at state colleges and universities are subject to the individual judgement of those institutions.

I will begin this letter by saying that I don’t know you, and I don’t know Jamal. I don’t know why you scribbled “blacks are known to steal,” racial slurs and other profanity in Sharpie pen across his dormitory door.

Many thought the 6-foot-1, 254 pound Issac Gross wouldn’t make it in the Southeastern Conference as a defensive tackle, but the Ole Miss freshman is proving those critics wrong.

Dear Editor,

Anyone from Mississippi knows how difficult it is to reconcile different aspects of Mississippi’s identity.  Our state is home to brilliant authors and businesspeople, but is mired in poverty.  We are the most hospitable, giving state in the Union, but our state is more recognized for its latent racism.

The Ole Miss Lady Rebel volleyball team will take a five-game losing streak on the road this weekend to play Mississippi State and Arkansas. Earlier this season, at home, Ole Miss defeated Mississippi State 3-1 and lost a four-set match to Arkansas. This past weekend, the Lady Rebels were swept in matches against Tennessee and Florida.

I was reading a Time magazine article the other day about how racist attitudes are ingrained in people. I’d suggest that it’s an article we all should read here at The University of Mississippi. Why? This article addresses an issue that’s not only a problem on our campus, but an issue that’s a problem nationwide — really worldwide.

Ole Miss (1-0) is coming off a 93-57 victory against Mississippi Valley State this past Friday, in which six Rebels their Ole Miss debuts. Head coach Andy Kennedy thought the newcomers played fast and that may have caused some turnovers and missed shots.
