2007 Ole Miss Football

Current information about Ole Miss Football can be found at 2010 Ole Miss Rebels Football.

See bottom of page for current discussion of Rebels football.

It was a bad year for Ole Miss football. I mean, they are used to that in Oxford. But, given the rise of cross-state rival Mississippi State, it will be a tougher post season than usual. The Rebels went 0-8 in the SEC, and 3-9 overall. They had the Miss. State game (Egg Bowl) won, till collapsing late in the 4th quarter.

Coach Orgeron was fired and replaced by former Arkansas coach Houston Nutt. And therein lies hope. Nutt was a fine coach at Arkansas. He knows SEC football and he can recruit. So, look for Old Miss football to improve. They'll even win and SEC game or two next season.

Prior Discussion:

Ole Miss football doesn't get a lot of attention in the SEC. This is probably due to their extensive record of losing seasons. And, that doesn't look to change this season.

The Rebels finished a disappointing 4-8 season last year, tying for last place in the SEC West. However, they had two near victories against Georgia and Auburn and suffered nail-biting losses to Alabama and LSU in overtime. So, Ole Miss had nothing to be ashamed of in 2006.

Oh, and they won the Egg Bowl, and took home the Golden Egg Trophy, beating cross-state rival Mississippi State.

University of Mississippi football has been weak at the quarterback position ever since the departure of Eli Manning nearly four years ago. It was thought that the position would go to former Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaffer, but he struggled in pre-season scrimmages. The word out of Oxford is that Mississippi native, and seasoned veteran, Seth Adams, will start at QB. Adams will be solid, but not spectacular at all.

One of the team's other downfalls comes from the completely rebuilt defensive line, with talented veterans like Patrick Willis and Rory Johnson being replaced by relative newcomers like Army Veteran Tony Fein and sophomore Jonathan Cornell.

The strength of the Rebel's team will be their running game led by All-SEC Offensive Lineman Michael Oher and running back Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis. Ole Miss also has fifteen returning starters.

Head coach Ed Orgeron and Offensive Coordinator Dan Werner have overhauled the offense; developing a short-intermediate passing game, putting more focus on tight ends. Former quarterback Robert Lane, who now plays tight end, is especially expected to make some important contributions this year thanks to his good hands and his ability to think quickly on his feet.

Orgeron is on the hot seat to produce a winning football team at Ole Miss.

In the end, though, it's hard to see how Old Miss climbs out of the SEC-West cellar. They'll likely battle it out again with Mississippi State for last place.
