Rebels seek to extend stay in Omaha

Head coach Mike Bianco high-fives fans while arriving for the College World Series game between Virginia and Ole Miss in Omaha.


OMAHA, Neb. — After falling to the Virginia Cavaliers 2-1, the Rebels will play Texas Tech today to remain in the College World Series. “It’s a tough lesson you learn in baseball. We’ve learned this a few times this year, the team that

plays best usually wins,” said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. “I thought they outplayed us tonight. Not by much, but enough to make a difference, especially in this type of ball game. Tip your hat to Virginia. I thought (Nathan) Kirby was tremendous. We just could not solve him and catch up to his fastball.

It seemed like we get him, then he would mix in a breaking ball or a change-up. We just couldn’t get to his fastball. I thought Chris (Ellis) did a good job pitching out of some jams and they were able to put enough runners on and get timely hits. I’m proud of the way we competed.” Like the Rebs, the Red Raid-

ers lost in their first game of the College World Series against TCU 3-2 to match up in tonight’s elimination. “I thought TCU played a really good game. Played good defense for the most part, I think, and they really capitalized on our opportunities,” said Texas Tech head coach Tim Tadlock.

“It’s a tough, tough way to lose your first game up here. At the same time, we won’t look back and get ready to go on Tuesday.” Texas Tech finished the regular season with a 45-20 record, going 33-4 at home and 14-10 in conference play. The Red Raiders dominated See BASEBALL, PAGE 11

Honors college funds student trips to World Cup BY CALLIE DANIELS

The Sally McDonnellBarksdale Honors College sent six students to Brazil on June 11 to the FIFA World Cup to provide them with a learning environment for international interaction. Dean of the Honors College Douglass Sullivan-Gonzalez recalled how the trip came to be. He said it was created from a competitive session between professors on coming


up with special topics for their classes. “There were several topics that came up,” SullivanGonzalez said. “They focused on international security, languages and the sports. All of those topics became requirements for students in qualifying for the World Cup trip.” Andrus Ashoo, national scholarship advisor for the honors college, said about 13 students who applied were given the chance to explain to the committee why they were

the best candidate to receive this study opportunity. “They each made a website or a video telling us why they should go,” Ashoo said. “An important factor in choosing them was a special topics class they enrolled in.” Ashoo said this will be a great opportunity for their students to engage with international topics and put their preparation into practice. “This World Cup trip is See World Cup, PAGE 9

A statement against people-pleasing BY SUMMER WIGLEY

In my pursuit of selfdiscovery, I’ve begun to discover flaws that encompass my life. One of these in particular that I struggle with every day is being a people pleaser. After contemplating the reasons for this flaw, I’ve discovered three aspects of people pleasing in my life. One of these aspects is that I’m exhausted. Consistently searching for ways to please others is physically and emotionally exhausting. I would tire myself every day asking questions such as “How can I help him today?” “Does she need this to be done?” “She mentioned this … does she want me to say something?” “Who needs me?” These questions would

often burden my existence. Second, no one is happy in a people-pleasing relationship. In my pursuit of pleasing others, I have to ask myself, “Am I really making them happy?” The level of expectations increase when one is a people pleaser. Once one act of giving is done, yet another one is expected. If I didn’t do a well enough job, I was reprimanded verbally or with looks of disappointment. It’s a tug-of-war of emotions on both parties. Last, I had forgotten the true meaning of giving in m y pursuit of solely pleasing others. The art of giving involves voluntary acts of love and altruism without expecting compensation of any kind. So in that regard, I had been wrong all along. Here was my problem: I expected compensation. I

needed that “thank you,” that validation, an act of giving in return. I was unsure of what I was looking for in the people that I helped, but I was wrong in even looking for anything at all. The true reward of helping others is that the act itself exceeds any other treasures. What I’ve discovered through releasing myself of the bonds of being a people pleaser is that expecting compensation is not giving and one can’t expect to reach his or her potential as an individual in a constant pursuit of pleasing others. I have always known that I’m the happiest version of myself when I am helping others; however, I cannot genuinely help others if I am not happy. In my favorite childhood novel, “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein, the tree’s

heart was genuinely fulfilled through her unselfish love for the boy by giving him everything and expecting nothing in return. Until one can release their selfish desires in helping others, their hearts will never be truly fulfilled. Giving to people and helping others are some of the most beautiful aspects of life, as these actions which provide fulfillment to all parties involved. I understand now that my unhappiness stemmed from my desire to please others and desiring validation without realizing that good deeds are good enough on their own. I also understand now that my happiness derives from giving and expecting nothing in return. “And the tree was happy.” Summer Wigley is a psychology major from Ridgeland.



No one likes the fun police BY SIERRA MANNIE

Except for steak, which should always be enjoyed cooked medium or pinker (NO EXCEPTIONS), there are no rules to enjoying things. If you like something — or if you don’t — it’s okay. Variety is the spice of life, and there’s no timeline to introductions to life’s smörgåsbords. We’re human beings living in a snappy world full of technology that sticks fun’n’fresh things in our faces all the time, and I will be damned if I let one of you ashy boys and girls call me a bandwagoner for liking something new ever again. I do not know much about baseball, soccer, basketball or most other sports. I was not an athletic child. I learned to read when I was three, and spent the two years before kindergarten jumping on my bed in my room watching Steve and Blue and picking up deductive reasoning skills. Academia shaped my preferences for competitive extracurricular activities in middle school and high school. While some of y’all were scraped up on the playground playing tag, I was chilling on the sidelines getting racks on racks of Accelerated Reader points. When kids were trying out for basketball, softball,

track and cheerleading, I was happily minding my business in the Quiz Bowl, Forensics and Academic Decathlon corners, and trying to win the National Spelling Bee. I lost, by the way; I wasn’t nearly homeschooled enough to have a shot at the number one nerd spot in Washington, D.C. Luckily, I adopted new interests and was face to face with things I didn’t quite experience before in high school, like a flourishing athletics department and a preexisting fan base with an irresistible way of drawing you into showing your school spirit. It’s fun as hell to get behind our teams and support them. They deserve it. And maybe I haven’t cared about baseball before in my life, but I get a Fast Pass to enthusiasm about it today, sis, because I am an Ole Miss student and I am entitled to the opportunity to support my classmates, whether or not I decided to subject my hair and clothes to beer showers all during regular season. The same sentiments go for soccer. As witty as you think you are making dry comments about people’s excitement for the World Cup and their newfound enthusiasm for soccer, please let me be the first to let you know that you need to have several seats.

global celebration of an extremely popular sport and is accompanied by this almost tangible fervor. How could you not be excited for it? Why wouldn’t someone who’s never watched soccer before decide to experience something new and fun, and watch the games? Should people have to stand on the wall during this worldwide party just because someone who played soccer in high school says they’re not a real fan? Of course not. Stop being the fun police, and just let people like things — God forbid people get the opportunity to broaden their horizons and enjoy a passion shared by about 80 percent of the rest of the human population. Lively up your selves and try to be likable. I haven’t been a lifelong soccer fan at all, but as for me and my 18-inch Brazilian bundles, we will be praying for Júlio César’s steady heart and hands in the match against Mexico tomorrow, regardless

of how you might feel about it. It doesn’t matter whether or not you decided to like the Miami Heat, a musical group, Apple products, or anybody or anything else yesterday or ten years ago. It doesn’t matter whether or not you like it “just because everyone else does.” While you live in this world, you should access every part of it that you can. Life is too short

for letting the fun police infest your mentions and limit your enjoyment of anything that you like, especially if you’re not hurting anyone. Try new things. Participate in fun cultural celebrations without appropriating them. Do you. Sierra Mannie is a classics major from Ridgeland.

The Bible Belt: Jewish life in Mississippi BY TAYLOR LUST

According to the Pew Research Center, Catholics, along with Evangelical and Mainline Protestants, make up a total of 67 percent of Mississippi’s religious population. Denominations of Christianity and Catholicism are fairly dominant in the Deep South, especially in the state of Mississippi. Judaism, on the other hand, makes up only two percent of the state’s religious population. Even though Judaism is fairly small, there are synagogues, rabbis and people all over the state doing their best to live and be Jewish in the state of Mississippi. Tucked away in the relatively average-sized town of Tupelo, sits a small synagogue by the name of B’nai Israel. It’s somewhat difficult to find, as it’s set off in a small residential area. The synagogue itself is no more than the size of an average two bedroom house, and it stands on the street as if it were a simple home. And that’s exactly what it is. The small house-like structure only differs in one way from the rest of the houses on the block: the large Star of David that is perched in between two colorful stainedglass windows. Under the Star it reads: “Temple B’nai Israel.”  Synagogues just like B’nai Israel are what make up the majority of the Jewish population in Mississippi. Among the 1500 Jewish people in the State of Mississippi, about 70 percent reside in Jackson, where the larger synagogue of Beth Israel is located.  Meridian, Madison, and Tupelo are among the more wellknown of the small town congregations, and aside from the slightly larger congregation in Biloxi, Mississippi, they help to make up the face of Judaism in Mississippi. Among the members of this homey Tupelo congregation are two long-time members of the temple: Marc Perler and George Copen. Perler has been a member of the B’nai Israel congregation almost since it was founded in 1957. He has been a part of its family for so long that he has become the congrega-

tion’s “head honcho.” Copen has been a part of the congregation since its beginnings as well.  A well-known member of the congregation, Copen takes pride in his Judaism, and believes the family-like feeling of the synagogue is what makes it so special. “It’s one big family here,” Copen said. “And when we all meet, it’s Aunt Lucille, Uncle Saul, even though we’re not related. But they’re all uncles and aunts.” Perler believes that small town Judaism is among the most important aspects of Jewish life in the South. He thinks that small town congregations make up families, which provide for excellent Jewish living in the congregation. Perler also appreciates the close-knit community the Tupelo congregation has provided. “My kids, who now have kids of their own, say ‘I didn’t realize what I had, and how cool that was,” he said. “Now I wish I still had that kind of relationship with people.’” Perler, having grown up in a 1,200 family congregation in Nashville, Tenn., knows what it’s like to be able to have congregational amenities provided for you. In a small town, it’s a little different. Being in the South where Judaism isn’t a major religion, a permanent head rabbi or Jewish School teacher may be hard to come by, so the congregants of B’nai Israel have had to make ends meet. “When you’re in a small Southern town, you cannot economically and spiritually depend strictly on religious professionals to handle everything for you” Perler said. “You have your rabbi, your Sunday school teacher, your cantor … and we are all of the above.” With such a small congregation, B’nai Israel doesn’t have a lot at its disposal. Perler believes that what they lack in materials, they make up for in their congregation. “We think that we have made the very best of what we can with this congregation.” However, it is not without difficulty that these small congregations thrive. Perler and Copen reflected on the dif-

ficulties and hardships that have come along with being a smaller synagogue. Perler believes small town Judaism is unfortunately beginning to die in Mississippi. Specifically, the Tupelo congregation, which has had a lack of younger congregants, and this means there will be no one to continue the tradition.  Copen shares the same belief. “The largest count we’ve ever had here was 75 families,” Copen said. “Today we’re down to maybe 30, and most of those are retired elderly.” Perler has an idea of why the younger population has decreased and attributes it to finding new and better opportunities.  “There’s nothing here for younger families,” he said. “We had a young doctor look at this facility and ask, ‘How big is your Sunday School? How many specialized teachers do you have? How many rabbis do you have?’ and we say ‘well, tell us what you want and we’ll make it happen,’ and that’s totally unacceptable to that certain socioeconomic group.” Without new or returning young congregants, B’nai Israel will eventually meet its end. “All of us here are getting a little older,” Perler said. “My kids live in other states and they’re not going to come back here because they’ve got their own lives to deal with … and it’s quietly slip-sliding away everywhere.” Copen seemed accepting of the idea of small town Judaism dying out. “What’s going to happen? It will slowly slide away,” Copen said. “Small congregations like ourselves will only be in bigger cities.” But Copen has faith that there will always be a congregation somewhere in a small town.  “This is an easy place to grow up and live and raise a family,” Copen said.

Due to the fact that these smaller synagogues can’t necessarily afford a staff and faculty, one rabbi’s profession involves making sure that these small congregations have what they need. Rabbi Marshal Klaven, director of Rabbinic Services at the Institute of Southern Jewish Life, is widely considered as a “traveling rabbi.” “It’s a fancy title that whittles down to me being a circuit-riding rabbi,” Klaven said. The idea behind the circuit rabbi is to provide for smaller congregations in areas that they might struggle in. “Areas with larger cities such as Dallas will never struggle like those in smaller areas who may not be able to afford a full time rabbi,” Klaven said. “And the organization I work for asked ‘Wherever there’s a Jew, why should they go without full time rabbinic support? Or without full time Jewish education? Or without full time Jewish cultural knowledge?…and we’ve taken all of those and put them out on the road.” While on his circuits, Klaven made a number of appearances at the Tupelo congregation, and he is especially fond of it. “It’s unique,” Klaven said. “I hope that a lot of larger and smaller congregations can start to do what they’re doing. They have a very competent and engaging service leader in Marc Perler, and they also give everyone a key to the building when they become a member … which really lets you know that you own it, and you’re responsible for it.” Klaven is also aware of the small percentage of Jewish people in Mississippi, but he believes that although it may be small, the Jewish population makes itself known. “Jews here are never bashful about their identity as Jews … however they use that to integrate highly in their communities, because they were and

are the small businessmen and women, and having that function within these small towns made them highly accepted,” Klaven said. After traveling throughout the South to multiple congregations, Rabbi Klaven has seen the difficulties of being Jewish in the South. He believes the difficulties aren’t so much found in connecting with other Jews, but that they lie elsewhere. “Mississippi is densely populated with small town Jewish congregations. So if someone wanted to connect, they could,” Klaven said. The congregations in small towns tend to weigh a bit on the older side of the scale, Klaven said. “So if you’re a young Jew, there may be a struggle to say ‘you know what, there’s just not that much there,’” he said. “And I think that that is where the struggle lies.” Although small town Judaism is dying out, it still stands as the face of Judaism in Mississippi, and as one of the main smaller congregations, the B’nai Israel congregation in Tupelo has created a name for itself. They are a close-knit family who have made the best of what they have, and are going strong today. They hold services every Friday night, and provide the classic dish of smoked salmon and bagels after services on the first Saturday of every month. People like Perler, Klaven, and Copen have played significant roles in the continuation and expansion of Judaism in Mississippi, and although it may be dying out, it will continue to thrive no matter what. As George Copen said, “There’s always a Jew someplace who can start a congregation.”




Giffin’s latest novel is chick lit for football lovers BY GRACE LOVVORN

Summer has officially arrived, and with it comes warm weather, beach vacations, and sunny days spent poolside. In the literary realm, summer means the release of lighthearted novels targeted toward female readers. One of the most prominent authors in this genre is Emily Giffin. The Atlanta-based author has written numerous “chick lits,” with her newest book, “The One and Only,” just released last month. “The One and Only” depicts its main character, Shea, as a woman still stuck in her college past. She works for her

alma mater’s athletic department, with her best friend’s father as the head coach of the football team. The novel is based in a Texas town, quite similar to Dillon, the fictional town in the NBC series “Friday Night Lights.” The similarities between “The One and Only” and “Friday Night Lights” do not stop there. The novel’s Coach Carr, who heads up the college football team, has the wholesome-but-authoritative qualities that are extremely reminiscent of Coach Taylor from the famed NBC show. Thankfully for “The One and Only,” the elements both presented by the book and the show can be given more depth

and emotion when in print. Giffin attempts to tie football into her usually feminine style of writing, and does a fairly successful job of doing so. She uses her main female character, Shea, as a vessel of knowledge about the sport. Shea not only is obsessed with her fictional college’s team, but with actual football teams. Throughout the novel, Shea is found rattling off sports statistics at almost an incessant rate. Readers who typically read Giffin’s works may find this cloying to the story’s plot. Apart from sports, the novel addresses multiple themes. Some of these themes are quite relatable, such as living to one’s full potential, and

while the others, like taboo relationships, can be uncomfortable at times. Through parts of the book, readers may find themselves questioning the morality of the characters, which may be unsettling when looking for a casual beach read. Overall, when finding a book to read during summer vacation, “The One and Only” is a unique option. The emphasis on sports is quite different than most novels in its genre, along with Giffin’s quality writing skills. The characters are flawed yet humorous, the setting is nostalgic, and the novel itself will leave you wanting to discover more of Giffin’s works.



Spruce up your workout wardrobe this summer BY GRACE LOVVORN

It’s time to throw out your boring black spandex, thanks to new, fashionable options for athletic apparel. In the past, most workout clothes were only made by traditional athletic brands, such as Nike, Under Armour and Adidas. While customers could purchase clothing from these brands in an array of colors, making a unique fashion statement in the gym could often be a difficult feat to accomplish. This led to individuals owning athletic clothes which, no matter what brand, looked identical. The past few years have served as a blessing to the activewear market in terms of fashion. Traditional athletic brands have finally evolved their clothing by collaborating with designers. A perfect example of this collaboration is Adidas and Stella McCartney’s successful athletic line. More surprisingly, previously nonathletic apparel brands are introducing activewear lines at

a high rate. Recently, Urban Outfitters introduced its Without Walls line, which includes “high performance, high fashion gear to take your workout to new heights,” according to its website. Free People has also dived head first into the activewear market. Its athletic line, FP Movement, not only includes basic active clothing, but also ballet apparel. These pieces are striking in design, but practicality often comes into question. Needless to say, these new activewear lines may not be the best option for serious athletes, but are perfect for those who care about looking their best during fitness classes. Since trendy activewear is now widely accessible with thanks to brands like Urban Outfitters and Forever 21, anyone looking to make a statement at the gym can do so. Next time you grab your Nike shorts, remember to

medicinal marijuana, is a concentrate extracted from cannabis plants with low THC levels, the defining psychoactive compound of marijuana, and high cannabidiol, CBD, levels that have shown promise in treating those diagnosed with epilepsy. The other large difference between CBD-oil and typical current medical marijuana treatments is that the oil will be administered orally rather than smoked. “I think it’s going to be a great opportunity for not only these universities, but for our state to shine” Sen. Josh Harkins said. “We’ve had a lot of firsts at UMMC with the first heart transplant, Dr. Gay and her research with HIV, this

this marijuana, no I’m voting against it,’” Harkins said. The low THC factor has been a line Mississippi lawmakers refuse to compromise on. Despite being a decriminalized state and being home to the only federal marijuana farm in the nation, medical marijuana is still a fiercely opposed movement by many of our states senators and representatives. Gov. Bryant has stated that he only considered CBD-exclusive treatment after being assured that there was no way for the patient to get high. This was mirrored by Harkins who, when originally approached by the godmother of Harper Grace to legalize CBD-oil, was hesitant to do anything beyond looking into the situation. He credits the first ten minutes of Sanjay Gupta’s CNNdocumentary, “Weed”, for his change of mind and heart regarding his stance on cannabis-derived treatment. He also added that if more studies are done on the medicinal

value of THC, he would be open to looking into the matter. Deputy director of NORML Paul Armentano released a statement via email saying, “These measures do not represent any significantchange law, only the illusion of change. While the passage of these measures may pose symbolic victories for legislators, they fail to provide tangible benefits to constituents that they are intended to serve.” Harkins responded with the reasoning that in order to get the bill signed, he needed to make sure there were controls in place that would ease Bryant’s worries that this could be abused in some manner. Those controls being that only Ole Miss will be able to cultivate and extract the CBD from cannabis plants, and only The University of Mississippi Medical Center will be able to distribute it. “If we’re going to be providing this, we want to make sure we’re not saying you can have some CBD-oil, but it comes from Bubba’s CBD Shop on some backwoods

country road,” Harkins said. “We’re doing this in a responsible way that people can feel comfortable with what they’re taking is low THC and high CBD.” The amount of protection patients would receive from being prosecuted for possessing the CBD-oil was a large point of concern from the MPP who released an action alert stating that Harper Grace’s law would not provide an affirmative defense for patients. Harkins was quick to correct the misinterpretation. “The bill provides an exemption (for CBD-extracts) from the schedule I class of narcotics,” Harkins clarified. He added, “People didn’t read the bill that are making assumptions.” The next hurdle patients will have to clear is that the UMMC, which will be distributing the CBD-oil, will need approval from the Federal Drug Administration. The UMMC could not be reached for comment on the progress of the approval process thus far.

a catalyst for international scholars to interact with culture, sports, politics, economics and security,” Ashoo said. Debra Young, associate dean of the honors college said the students were divided into three groups and are not going to be escorted by faculty. She said the students were in charge of organizing the majority of their trip. “They planned every detail of the World Cup trip. Where they would stay, when the games were, and so on,” Young said. “They had the confidence they could meet the challenges.” Even though this is not a program where students are taking classes, Sullivan-Gonzalez said students are still engaging in a new environment. “It’s essentially study abroad,” Sullivan-Gonzalez said. “Each student was granted two grand to pay for the costs of flying, housing, and tickets. It’s their responsibility.”

Young said she is proud of what the students have done in order to be a part of such a unique event. “I think it’s incredible,” Young said. “They are great representatives of the honors college … and I will be looking for their faces in the crowds on television!” The honors college courtyard has four country flags. Each flag is for the countries the U.S. soccer team must face in its group: Germany, Ghana and Portugal. A couple steps past the front door there is a bulletin board with a large bracket system. Sullivan-Gonzalez said that whoever correctly predicts the winner will receive a t-shirt.




Former Rebel Malloy hired to lead Ole Miss men’s golf we can welcome back one of our own to Oxford and we are thrilled to have Chris, Danielle and Kaylee join the Ole Miss family.” “I am extremely excited to return to my alma mater as the head coach of this program,” Malloy said. “Anyone that has ever been to Oxford knows it’s a truly special place. There is no other college town like it in the country. However, as much as this may have pulled on my heartstrings, I am not returning to Ole Miss because it’s my alma mater; I am returning to win a national championship. This is an opportunity of a lifetime for me and my family, and I am extremely excited to return home and win a national championship as a Rebel.” Last season, USF advanced to its second-straight NCAA regional under Malloy and just the third in school history after a fourth-place finish at the American Athletic Conference Championships. The Bulls finished the season ranked No.

33 in the nation by Golfweek, while sophomore Chase Koepka earned Ping All-Region honors. In 2013, Malloy guided a young group of Bulls to the school’s first-ever BIG EAST tournament championship earning BIG EAST Coach of the Year honors. USF advanced to the NCAA Tallahassee Regional and came within one stroke of a berth to the NCAA championship rounds, falling to Oklahoma in a playoff. In his first season in Tampa, the Bulls equaled their bestever finish at the BIG EAST Championships with a tie for fourth place, earned four topsix tournament finishes and improved their stroke average from 308.3 in four fall tournaments to 298.5 in five spring events. In year two, Malloy helped USF to the nation’s largest gain in the national rankings, leading the Bulls to be named Golfweek Magazine’s Fastest Rising

Program. South Florida posted seven top-10 finishes, including three in the top five. Prior to arriving at USF, Malloy spent four seasons as an assistant at Florida State where he played a significant role in the rise of the FSU men’s program. The Seminoles won their first-ever ACC golf championship in 2008, and, after leading at the end of the first round, finished third in the NCAA Championships in 2010, the best finish in program history. The Seminoles were ranked in the nation’s top 15 during the first two years of his coaching career, and Florida State’s team stroke average dropped to a 15-year low 72.77 in 2008. At FSU, he was the designated on-course coach for the Seminoles numerous times during the 2007-10 seasons including during the third round of the 2007 NCAA Championship finals as Florida State won a three-team playoff and advanced to the top 15 in the standings, moving on to the fi-

nal round. In 2010, the ‘Noles defeated seven teams ranked ahead of them in the national rankings to win the Bryan Park Collegiate team championship under Malloy’s watch. The following week, FSU won the Pinehurst Challenge for its second consecutive team win, a feat that had not been accomplished at FSU in almost 30 years. Malloy was named the interim assistant coach of the women’s program in the spring of 2010 and presided over an outstanding season for that program that included a 10thplace finish at the NCAA Championships. Both the men’s and women’s programs were also recognized by the NCAA with a perfect APR (Academic Progress Rate) score for the period of 20062009. Malloy was selected as one of five finalists for the 2010 Jan Strickland Award presented by See GOLF, PAGE 11

Former Ole Miss studentathlete Chris Malloy has been chosen to lead the Rebel men’s golf program, Athletics Director Ross Bjork announced Monday. Malloy, the 2013 BIG EAST Coach of the Year, returns to Oxford after four years as the head coach at the University of South Florida. As a player for the Rebels, he helped lead Ole Miss to a pair of NCAA tournament appearances in 1999 and 2000. “It’s a great day for Ole Miss Golf,” Bjork said. “Chris Malloy is the perfect coach to lead our program and put us into a competitive position to win championships. As an Ole Miss student-athlete and alumnus, he possesses the highest of qualities we sought in our new coach. His energy and tenacity in recruiting, player development and fundraising will provide us with the proper ingredients for success in the SEC and on the national stage. It is always a special time when

TaylorMade-adidas golf as the National Men’s Assistant Golf Coach of the Year. The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA or NJCAA assistant coach that has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom. In his career as an assistant, Malloy produced four AllAmericans, four All-ACC selections and one ACC individual champion, including the 2010 ACC Player of the Year, sophomore Brooks Koepka. Malloy was a standout golfer at Ole Miss from 1999-2000, leading the Rebels to a 24thplace finish at the NCAA Championships in 1999 and an 11th-place finish at the NCAA East Regional in 2000. A two-year letterman and team captain for Ole Miss, Malloy earned his bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant management in 2001 and was named to the UMAA Academic Honor Roll during his time as a Rebel. He married the former Danielle Bartlett in June 2008 and they have a daughter, Kaylee.

NCAA tournament play going 5-2 including two wins over Miami and two wins over College of Charleston to advance to Omaha. The Red Raiders played tough competition all year long, including three wins over national seed Indiana to start the season, a win over Rice, and wins over TCU. Texas Tech is another strong offensive team that the Rebels have to deal with. The Red Raiders are among the top 50 teams in the country in batting average and 18th in the country in hits. The pitching staff has also been productive, owning a 3.17 ERA as a whole. What really helps Texas Tech win games is their defense. The Red Raiders are top five in the country in fielding percentage with .981. Texas Tech is one of the most complete teams in the country, so for the Rebels to avoid elimination and keep the run in Omaha alive, they’ll have to play their most complete game of the season. Ole Miss will play at 2 p.m. on ESPN2 against Texas Tech in the elimination game.

Football Recruiting: Part 5 This fifth installment of a six part series focuses on the Rebels’ prospects for linebacker for the 2015 recruiting class.











stock the linebacking core. The lone commitment of the 2015 class for Ole Miss is Olive Branch linebacker Fred Walls. Walls picked up his scholarship offer from the Rebels after his sophomore year in high school, and committed in December of 2013. Walls is listed as 6-foot-1, 220 pounds by 247Sports and rated as the No. 21 player in the state of Mississippi by its composite rankings. One of the highest rated players Ole Miss is after is Brookhaven linebacker Leo Lewis. 247’s composite rating has him as the No. 1 inside linebacker in the country. Those same rankings also put him as the No. 3 overall prospect in Mississippi. Ole Miss is currently at a disadvantage to land the highly touted prospect however, as the Alabama Crim-

son Tide currently hold his commitment. Lewis’ decision may not be final though, as he continues to take visits to other schools, including multiple visits to Ole Miss and recently attending a camp at Ole Miss as well. To land him, the Rebels would have to beat out a host of schools including his leader Alabama and in-state rival Mississippi State, wich he ranked as his number two school in an interview with Rivals. In addition to recruit the number one inside linebacker in the country, the Rebels are also on the trail of the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country, as according to 247’s composite rankings. Texas linebacker Malik Jefferson holds this honor, as well as being the ninth best player in the country, per the compos-

ite rankings. Texas A&M, Ohio State, Stanford and UCLA are in the mix to sign him, according to Rivals, but Ole Miss also has a shot, as a trip to Oxford was the second college visit Jefferson took. Ole Miss could possibly find quicker relief to the loss of the players mentioned at the beginning of the article by getting Kansas linebacker Davon Durant. Like Jefferson, Durant is also ranked as the number one player at his position and the number nine player in the country by 247’s composite rankings. Only this time, the difference is that Durant is in the juco rankings and is an inside linebacker. The Rebels seem to be in good standing, as the 6-foot-2, 240 pound linebacker told Rivals that the teams recruiting him

the hardest are Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia, Ole Miss and Arizona State. Another highly rated linebacker interested in the Rebels is Josh Smith. From Murfreesboro, Tenn., Smith is ranked as a four star and the number eight inside linebacker in the country by 247’s composite ranking. In an interview with Rivals he said his top five is made up of Vanderbilt, Purdue, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Penn State. Smith also said academics will be a factor in his recruitment, which has helped Purdue’s standing quite a bit. Smith was supposed to visit Oxford recently, but was unable to make the visit because he was attending the Rivals Five Star Challenge camp.


Ole Miss has three senior linebackers with starting experience going into the 2014 season, so finding depth to fill the void left by them could be one of the top priorities in the 2015 recruiting class. Outside linebacker Keith Lewis has played in every single game for the Rebels in the last three years, 2013 All-SEC second team selection Serdarius Bryant led the team in tackles last year, and two time Chucky Mullins Award recipient Deterrian Shackleford has been an important team leader and produced well on the field, so Ole Miss is looking at some of the top players from the high school and junior college level to re-
