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.

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.

Open Letter to Coach Freeze:

When I saw you had spoken about the events on last Tuesday evening on campus, I was hopeful to see our head coach take the opportunity to condemn those actions/thoughts/words.
Unfortunately, you took the opportunity to condemn student media and the misuse of the word “riot.”
Maybe you were worried it would affect football recruiting. Don’t you think saying “hateful and racist speech is NOT acceptable and here’s what I plan to do about it” would speak volumes to potential student athletes?

The situation Saturday night was all too familiar for Ole Miss. Having the lead with just over two minutes left in the game, a defensive stop would have propelled the Rebels to six wins and bowl eligibility. Instead, they were handed another heartbreaking. This time by the Vanderbilt Commodores, who became bowl eligible themselves with the win.

Over the last two games against Arkansas and Georgia, Ole Miss has found itself unable to move the football on the ground.
