I'm 30 yrs old and from south Mississippi. I'm a Ole Miss fan and love college football. I watch all the SEC games. I am the proud father of a beautiful 8 yr old girl. I was in the army for 8 yrs and I did one tour in Afganistan and two in Iraq.
After taking a another quick look at Florida's RB's, you're right about the RB position. Florida does have a lot of talented RBs. Ole Miss has a lot of good, reliable RBs, but right now our guards on the OL don't fit Ole Miss' offensive scheme. Ole Miss loves to pull it's linemen, but both of the guards are well over 330 lbs, so they have trouble pulling and getting out in front. I agree about what you said about Driskel, he is just bad right now. While I do think Ole Miss has a lot of great WRs and TE, Florida does have talent at those positions too, because we are talking Florida and they will always have talent. But like I said before, if Bo Wallace was the QB at Florida this year, I believe Florida would win the East.
Comment on Week 9 win probability for every SEC team
Ole Miss 31 LSU 6 So far this year, only one of my predictions has been off and it wasn't by a lot. LSU's one dimensional offense is going to struggle a lot against the Ole Miss defense. The way I came up with 31 points for OM is that I believe LSU's defense is similar to Tenn's defense. Except LSU is weaker on the DL and at LB compared to Tenn. Plus, Ole Miss is going to score their points and the defense may even score at TD.
Great article Murf. People don't realize that Wallace has put up really good numbers his whole career and just focus on the INTs. I really do believe if was the QB for Florida this year, Florida would win the East. Bo Wallace's biggest problem during his career at Ole Miss was him trying to do to much with the ball and that is what got him in trouble. Now he realizes that he doesn't have to do a lot to win games because of Ole Miss' defense. But he still can light up the score board if Ole Miss needs him too.
@Daniel Taylor: First off, you're an idiot. Secondly, Bo Wallace set just about every juco QB record there was while he was at East Mississippi, and one the National Championship. When Wallace was at East Mississippi, they threw the ball just about every play and here are his stats: 502 attempts 336 completions 67% PCT 14 INTs 4,604 passing yards 53 TDs 61 rushing attempts for 206 yards That was all in one season.
@weagleweagle: That has to be the dumbest comment I have ever heard in my entire life. Well at least everyone knows that you are one of the dumbest people that comment on here.
Comment on Ole Miss: Looking Ahead
I think people are really underestimating Ole Miss' offense, especially the running game. Ole Miss doesn't have a power running game, but Ole Miss is very a very balanced offense. Yes they do struggle sometimes running between the tackles, but they do a good job at keeping defenses honest. And more often than not, Ole Miss usually pops a few big runs every game. But make not mistake about it, Ole Miss can light up the score board with Bo Wallace. They just haven't had to do that this year.
Ethan, did you just say that Florida's skill position players are better than Ole Miss'? Did you just have a stroke or something? Because that is one of the dumbest things I have every heard in my life. It's not even a close call. You should be banned from writing or giving your opinion if you're going to say stupid things like that. The only position Florida is better than Ole Miss is at RB, but Ole Miss has more depth at RB. To even compare Bo Wallace to Driskel is a huge insult to Wallace. Wallace has put up huge numbers ever since he came to Ole Miss. If Wallace was the QB at Florida, they would win the East pretty easily because he would be the best QB in the East by a mile.
@Daddys Home: I'm guessing you're missing your right nut because you already lost a bet involving the Mississippi schools lol.
Comment on Throwback Thursday: Ole Miss vs. LSU
Ole Miss has actually won 3 out of the last 6 games vs LSU. So it's not like LSU has been dominating Ole Miss.
Comment on SEC Week 9 Predictions
Well I do think ya'll pick the winners. My predictions this year have been great except for the Memphis game. Last week I predicted the score to be OM 35 Tenn 6, actual score OM 34 Tenn 3. This week my predictions are: Ole Miss 31 LSU 6 Miss St 40 Kentucky 13 Auburn 35 South Carolina 17 Alabama 38 Tenn 7 Mizzou 24 Vandy 7
Comment on Number of GameDay visits by school
aTm is 0-4, Ouch! Well if Ole Miss wins this weekend, Gameday will be back in Oxford for the Ole Miss/Auburn game and if Ole Miss is still undefeated when the Egg Bowl come around, Gameday will surely be there again. That would be 3 Gamedays for Ole Miss in one year. But a lot has to happen for Ole Miss to get that 3rd one, but right now it's looking pretty good.
For LSU to win this game, it's going to come down to the QB (whoever it is). They are going to have to complete around 65% of their passes and hit a few big ones. Ole Miss hasn't had to load the box this season (even against Bama). So for LSU to have success threw the air, they are going to have to make Ole Miss bring down an extra defender into the box.
Honestly I don't understand how Vegas comes up with some of these lines. Ole Miss only being a 3 point favorite against LSU is crazy to me. No disrespect to LSU, but there is a reason why Ole Miss is the #3 team in the country with the best defense in the country. All my predictions this year have been extremely close, except for the Memphis game. Last week I predicted the Ole Miss/Tenn score to be 35-6, actual score 34-3. This week my prediction is: Ole Miss 31 LSU 6
Bo Wallace actually does have arm-talent and is pretty damn accurate. He doesn't have the fast delivery. Wallace is the best pure passer in the SEC this year. I'm not saying he is best QB, but when it comes to throwing the ball, Wallace is the best in the SEC.
Comment on Alabama is the SEC’s best playoff bet
Actually Ole Miss plays Auburn and MSU at home. So they play their two toughest teams at home. I don't see how Bama is the best bet to get the playoffs or win the SEC. Especially when they have to play Auburn and MSU with already having one loss. Bama would need to win out and hope that Ole Miss collapses by losing two games because Ole Miss holds the head to head win over Bama.
I love how people bring up "Bad Bo" . The writer mentioned that Wallace hasn't turned the ball over in conference play, but IF LSU can put pressure on Wallace he "can" be turnover prone. Well that's like saying LSU QB Jennings "can" be a great passer. It ain't going to happen any time soon.
Comment on Time for LSU to embrace underdog role
Right now LSU's biggest problem is at QB. Neither Harris or Jennings is going to be the future for LSU at QB. LSU needs to recruit a good pro-style QB to run their offense. LSU doesn't need to have some great athlete running their offense. They just need a reliable QB that get the ball to their athletes. Everyone knows that LSU has talent, but this year they young and on defense they aren't really that good up the middle with their DT's. It's going to be extremely hard for LSU to beat Ole Miss if they aren't balanced on offense. LSU isn't going to be able to pound the ball on Ole Miss and expect to score.
Well I'm not a Florida fan, but if I was one, I know that I wouldn't want Kliff Kingsbury for sure. He isn't a good head coach and his offensive style wouldn't work in the SEC. The air raid offense will never win championships. I'm not talking about a spread offense. Kingsbury and Mike Leach run an air raid offense. To be competitive year in and year out in the SEC and win NCs, a team needs to be able to run the ball as well as throw the ball, so pretty much be a balanced offense. In the air raid offense, they rarely run the ball and throw the ball on pretty much every down. Florida is a school that can get the best recruits and doesn't need a air raid offense. The best coaches for Florida in my opinion are Bob Stoops, Jim Harbaugh, Dan Mullin or James Franklin. I doubt Florida can get Harbaugh and Stoops might not want to leave the Big 12 because he practically owns the Big 12. I'm not sure if Mullen wants to leave Miss St or not. He has great job security right now at MSU. Hugh Freeze would be a good match for Florida, but he will never leave Ole Miss simply because it is his dream job and he is a Mississippi boy. Plus he has a great thing going and is building Ole Miss into a power.
Comment on GameDay analyst rebuts ‘SEC Bias’ claims
Fowler and Herbstriet are the best college football analyst and broadcasters. The Big 10 and Pac 12 fans are going to be even more upset because next week College Gameday will be back in Oxford for the Ole Miss/Auburn game.
Comment on SEC Stadium Shots
Nope. The reason Ole Miss played a lot of it's games in Jackson back in the day was because Ole Miss' stadium wasn't as large as it is today and teams didn't want to play in it. The stadium in Jackson has a capacity of 60,000.
