Phil Longo is feeling good about his offense headed into his second season as offensive coordinator. Don’t blink.
In case you’ve been asleep all summer, here’s another preseason Ole Miss primer.
Remember the name Kevontae Ruggs. After Saturday’s scrimmage, Matt Luke said Ruggs performed the best of anybody in the group. I don’t know whether that’s exciting or frightening.
I love this (I had to Google Jalen Ramsey, too).
Scottie Phillips is making his move at running back. The Rebs sure need him.
This picture of DK Metcalf from the Manning Passing Academy is still getting passed around on the interweb.
The rise of Chad Kelly out in Denver is salvaging an otherwise slow sports month.
This will get you fired up for September.
I enjoyed this Ole Miss preview by Bill Connelly.
Ole Miss needs a running back to step up, and junior college transfer Scottie Phillips looks like he could be that guy in the early going.
Running back is the missing piece on an Ole Miss offense otherwise loaded with experience. A running game is crucial for keeping opposing defenses off balance. Without a true rushing threat, defenses will load up on the pass rush and that creates problems for offensive lines and quarterbacks that are difficult to overcome. That’s why finding a running back is so crucial.
If Phillips or another running back can get the Rebels reliable yardage Phil Longo’s offense could light up the scoreboard this fall.
