It’s a new season, but it’s the same ole storyline for Hugh Freeze.
Freeze called out Bo Wallace after Wednesday’s practice because of his questionable decision-making. He threw a couple of picks during a team drill, and neither of them had anything to do with lack of arm strength or his recovery from shoulder surgery.
And Freeze wants to put an end to the risky decision-making Wallace possesses, via Clarion-Ledger.
“We’re not good enough and deep enough to turn it over and expect to win. We have to find an answer to it, one way or another.
“I’m sure hoping at some point we can mature and just because you go through your progression, when you get to that third one it doesn’t mean that you have to throw it to that third one if they’re covered. That’s what happened a couple times.”
Wallace had an up-and-down year in 2012. He looked very impressive at times, while at other times, well, he looked very average and almost like a liability, throwing an SEC-high 17 INTs.
I’ve said (here and here) that Ole Miss could be a dark horse contender in the SEC West. But the success will hinge on the ability – or inability – of Bo Wallace to improve and take his game to the next level. The weapons are in place around him, but he has to cut down the turnovers and grow into more of a game manager.
Freeze hopes that happens before the Rebels visit Nashville.
