When National Signing Day began on Wednesday, Ole Miss wasn't necessarily expected to have one of the top 10 recruiting classes in the country. When the dust settled, Hugh Freeze's class had made some folks' top five. It led many, particularly on Twitter, to wonder just how it all could ...

Les Miles: “Nothing professionally could compare to this one”

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Unluckily for Les Miles the season will not go the way he wanted.  LSU will not make a BCS bowl game and the last play of the game against Ole Miss might be the way the season is remembered.  One second might recap the season for Miles and that’s not good. ...

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt has never been one to shy away from the spotlight. It's gotten him in trouble in several instances throughout his career.
