Julius Minor poses with his children. Minor was an admissions specialist in distance and online learning at Ole Miss.
Julius Minor, the husband of Luckyday Residential College Fellow Ethel Young-Minor and university employee, died Saturday morning. Minor suffered a heart attack and was unable to be resuscitated at the hospital. His death came as a surprise to Young-Minor, who said that although her husband had high blood pressure and diabetes, he was in good health. “He worked out all the time and ate really well,” she said. Young-Minor asked that the university community keep her family in their prayers. “We’re very thankful for how supportive the community has been,” Young-Minor said. “The community was near and dear to his heart.” The Minor family hopes to have visitation on Friday and the funeral Saturday afternoon. Dates and arrangements are not final at this time.
‘Was he going to raise the flag?’ John Hawkins, The University of Mississippi’s first black cheerleader, and former reporter for The Daily Mississippian Kitty Dumas recollect Hawkins’ adversity and the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag. BY KELTON BROOKS email@example.com
Even though years had passed since James Meredith took one of the most infamous steps on campus, the lingering effects of racism didn’t completely subside. John Hawkins, Ole Miss’ first black cheerleader, came under fire when he refused to wave the confederate flag after he made the team in 1982. Clara Bibbs, Hawkins’ friend and also an African-American, auditioned but did not make the team. “When I made the team, it was totally a fluke,”
Hawkins said. “I was trying to be supportive of and helpful for my friend Clara.” As a member of the cheerleading team, Hawkins said his teammates treated him fairly and were very happy for him. However, it took time for the university to accept him. Kitty Dumas, now a writer and communications consultant at KITCOM, wrote about Hawkins’ ordeal during her time as a writer for The Daily Mississippian. “There were a lot of people who saw that as a challenge,” Dumas said. “A See DUMAS, PAGE 4

Students protest the smoking ban in the Grove.
BY GRANT BEEBE firstname.lastname@example.org
Students, faculty and staff alike have recently found The University of Mississippi community divided by a debate concerning the university-wide smoking ban, which was enacted this past summer. Shannon Richardson, assistant director of campus recreation and co-chair of the Smoke-Free Policy Implementation Committee, said a resolution was passed last year for a smoke-free campus by the Associated Student Body. “This committee was formed after the ASB voted to pass a referendum to create a new policy that would prevent smoking on campus,” Richardson said. “The intentions of this policy are first and foremost to protect people on our campus from breathing secondhand smoke.” Smokeless tobacco is not
banned by the policy, as the only harm posed by such substances are to the user. The University of Mississippi Police Chief Calvin Sellers said UPD officers have distributed warnings to individuals smoking on campus. “We have passed out a couple of boxes’ worth of warning cards,” he said. No records are retained in regard to warnings. “Once people know they can get a ticket, and it starts costing them money, it may be a little different,” he said. “We have too much of a warning time, and people are not paying much attention to it.” Both Sellers and Richardson point to the failures of the past policy, which included designated smoking areas, in illustrating the necessity for the outright ban. “The former designated smoking areas policy failed to protect the campus from secondhand smoke, even be-
ing in effect for three years,” Richardson said. “Subsequently, the Smoke-Free Campus Policy Implementation Committee was created and charged with implementing the smoke-free campus policy.” Sellers said the enforcement of smoking zones was difficult. “People did not know where the smoking areas were,” he said. “Now, if people are smoking at all, there is no question that they are in violation.” Richardson said the problem of smoking on campus was not “just students.” “There are faculty, staff and students (and visitors) that did not adhere to the designated smoking areas,” Richardson said. “People were still having to walk through clouds of smoke while walking on campus.” Tickets will not be distributed until Jan. 1, and $25 will be fined for the first offense.

A Pennsylvania man is scheduled to die on Oct. 3 for the brutal murder of one man, and he has also been sentenced on third-degree murder charges in the death of another. Based on these simple facts, Terry Williams seems to be a prime candidate for the death penalty, and currently, the odds are that he will be the first person to be executed in the state of Pennsylvania in 13 years. What is so interesting about Terry Williams? The facts above fail to mention the nature of Williams’ relationship to his victims. Williams, who comes from a
long history of sexual abuse by male relatives and other authority figures, was just 18 years old when he killed two of his abusers. Those are the crimes for which he is sentenced to die. In a state where stories of child sexual abuse from both coaches and clergy have made national headlines, it seems Pennsylvania should be more sensitive to this kind of crime and recognize the real mental pain and anguish Williams suffered at the hands of his abusers. However, state officials have shown Williams no sympathy; the governor has signed the death warrant, and Williams’ last hope is a determination from the state pardons board. However, in Pennsylvania the recommendation of the Board of Pardons is merely a suggestion and not binding on the governor, so the execution is likely to go

forward. What’s even more troubling about this case, besides Williams’ relationship to his victims and his state’s own troubled history, are the clear errors committed during his trial and sentencing. After the trial, jurors revealed that the judge had not fully informed them of sentencing options before their deliberations and ultimate recommendation of death. Laws in Pennsylvania do not require judges to give instructions containing details of the possible sentences. In this case – a case of capital murder – regardless of circumstances there were only two possible sentences: death or life without parole. Since the sentence, five jurors have come forward and said that they would have not recommended the death penalty if they had known life without the possibility of

parole was the only alternative. The other issue with Williams’ trial was the evidence presented against him. Prosecutors mounted a case against him as motivated by robbery. Williams’ lawyers failed to mention his traumatic history of sexual abuse and his relationship to both of his murder victims, information that arguably could have proved to be mitigating factors in his charges and sentencing. There’s been a loud public outcry, most notably from the widow of one of Williams’ victims, to spare him from the execution chamber. And while it’s politically unpopular to spare people from execution and appear to be soft on crime, it seems as though Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett should See LIFE, PAGE 3

SPECIAL TO THE DM
A queer view BY NATHANIEL WEATHERSBY email@example.com
People, this is college – the time allotted to the youth of America to challenge ideals, question traditions and dabble in the occasional radical activism. Instead, we become bogged down with meaningless social events and shirk physical interactions for a few taps on an electronic tablet. Even though experiencing moments of reflection has become clichéd and commercialized, the search for these moments must not be abandoned like those dented red Solo cups you toss in the grass. Look around you. Not just at the person sitting beside you and not just at the trees as you walk back to your car, but at everything beyond this candy-coated city of Oxford. Out in this whole new world you will find people of different ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, political beliefs and, yes, even religions. Look even closer, and you will find issues currently dealing with the undermining and discrimination of many of these differences. You could even connect some of those issues to people here on this very campus.
continued from page 2
One in particular is the issue of queer rights. As some of you may know, gay marriage circles in the political skies and has become a talking point for many a presidential candidate, pastor and, more recently, a meat-frying company owner. Whether you are lesbian, straight, transgendered, gay or anything in between, decisions regarding this issue determine the progression of America as a nation and should be very important to you. Great moments in this nation’s history revolve around obstacles overcome by oppressed minority groups. In fact, our university is currently honoring one of those great moments this year (50 years of integration). Although the quest for queer rights is different from the one pursued and still pursued by black Americans, the call for equality is similarly imperative and present in both. Some people have beliefs that may hinder their acceptance of queer rights, whether passed down through a family line or a holy book, but let’s just make one thing clear: Any opinion that denigrates and places another group at an intentional and
unfair disadvantage is wrong. When an opinion leads to multimillion-dollar donations to organizations that work to unjustly limit the rights of another group, there’s something wrong. When opinions lead to a system where children are bullied to the point of increasing the suicide rate, someone should take interest. It is our responsibility as college students in America to think for ourselves, weigh the facts and take interest in things that will affect our future and our posterity. It’s essential that resources be sought out to right these wrongs, especially in the South where issues such as the “non-heterosexual one” can get shoved under the rug, prayed into “non-existence” or bullied into the closet. Looking for a good starting point? How about “that’s so gay?” I’ve heard this phrase many times on this campus and cringe at its utterance. I want to lash out at the speaker, but I know that the phrase exists because some people simply don’t know. The phrase “that’s so gay” is a loaded phrase. It implies that whatever that was “so gay” was apparently not cool enough, therefore connect-
ing “gay” with an unwanted negative connotation. On behalf of plenty a queer folk, I urge you to refrain from the usage of this phrase. I hear a strong vocabulary is rather useful in the world of academia. Even if you feel like you are not to the point at which you can fully accept the queer community, you can at least do this little thing to soften the pain many people receive for much of their lives. Pay more attention to what you say, the beliefs you act on and how those words and actions may affect the people around you. Imagine going through the day having to act completely different just so people sitting beside you in class won’t look at you as a second-class citizen. Think about being different from the “normal” you see at your school, on your television or in your mainstream movies. Think about risking your life for your country and coming home to a wall blocking you from the same rights with which others are born. It’s a strange thing, this queer perspective, but it’s one that I and many people of the world, America and The University of Mississippi share.
heed the outcry. Williams’ case highlights the ramshackle procedure and lack of proper procedure present in many death penalty cases today. Death is the only punishment that can’t be reversed. Before someone is sent to his or her death, it behooves us to ensure that his or her rights were not compromised and that there isn’t new information about the case. In Williams’ case, there is no doubt that he was responsible for the murders. But there was arguable misconduct on the part of the judge and prosecutor, incompetent counsel for Williams and a covering up of Williams’ violent past. All of these factors make a difference; they change the whole landscape of the case. Arguably, Williams was a product of the violence in which he was raised; executing him will only continue that cycle of violence, and there’s no way we can in good conscience call that justice.

view, it was only 20 years after the school had integrated. Dumas was able to realize, however, that the integration period was not long ago. “When he won, that brought a lot of national press to the campus because it was yet another milestone for the university,” Dumas said. “He had a perfect storm occurring, he was ripping the scalp off a situation, that underneath, was still charged.” At this time, the Ole Miss cheerleading team had a notorious tradition that everyone set their eyes on. “The question was, was he going to raise the flag,” Du-

mas said Hawkins’ response was straightforward with no indecisiveness: “No.” “The one thing in life you will know about me is that I am a principle-based person,” he said. “If you base your values on strong principles, you can never secondguess any decision that you make.” As Hawkins decision made the headlines, the editor of the DM at that time, Gary Parker, made the decision to place a picture of the Confederate flag on the masthead. “To put it on the front page, I felt he was crossing the ethical lines of the journalistic boundary,” Dumas said. “I don’t remember knowing he was going to do that, but when it was done, it was done.” Dumas didn’t see Parker as a person who was out throwing rocks, waving confederate flags and threatening people. “Every person’s action, it’s consequences for those,” Dumas said. “But maybe that was an unintended purpose for something that seemed wrong at the time that ended up helping by strengthening the movement against it.” Looking back at all that unfolded, Hawkins knew his choice would have a polarizing affect. “In hindsight, I never would have tried out,”

Hawkins said. “It had its ups and downs, but I can now see I created a vision for change.” Dumas said you can never overestimate the value of Hawkins’ efforts. “It seems like Ole Miss has gotten passed its past,” she said. “Maybe not completely, but I think in a big way. “You have to know where you’ve been before you know where you’re going, and I think the university has done that; and that has allowed it to move on.” Hawkins, now the chief operating oOfficer and board member at Management Performance International and the President
at Pathfinder Management Consulting, offered similar sentiments about the growth of the university. “The university is continuously making progress to redefine its image, to redefine its vision and to redefine its structure,” he said. “Ole Miss’ future is brighter than its past.” He added that the 50th anniversary of integration “is a great example of how the university has shown maturity to look back on a great milestone.” The New York Times is expected to publish an oped piece from Dumas this weekend on the integration anniversary at Ole Miss.

Ole Miss alums and a professor are participating in the fourth annual Water Valley Art Crawl on Sept. 29.
BY KAYLA CARPENTER email@example.com
The upcoming Water Valley Art Crawl is not only a great opportunity for entertaining locals and attracting tourists, but it also provides artists the opportunity to work together. Ole Miss alumnae Allie Hendee and Jerika Broussard and art show curator Andi Bedsworth met at The University of Mississippi Art Department. The three artists will reunite this weekend. “I met Allie and Jerika while I was running the costume shop at the Department of Theatre Arts at the university,” Bedsworth said. “They came in from the art department, as their work was a cross of fashion and art. We worked together on their projects and often hoped of exhibiting together.” That hope has become a reality, and the women said the Water Valley Art Crawl is a great platform to work with. “The art crawl is a very exciting event, and we want really want people to come together and enjoy and better understand art and its role
in our community,” said Annette Trefzer, Ole Miss English professor and member of the Water Valley Arts Association. “There are several former Ole Miss students and people associated with the university associated with Water Valley and the arts there. We are happy to support students from The University of Mississippi and welcome them to the galleries.” Trefzer, a Water Valley resident, co-owns Bozarts Gallery, which was the first gallery in Water Valley. Trefzer will curate the fiber arts show at Bozarts during the art crawl, which will feature Hendee’s sculptural dresses and Broussard’s hats. The name of the show is “Hanging by a Thread.” “When I got the opportunity to curate this show, I jumped at the chance to include Allie and Jerika,” Bedsworth said. Hendee, an Atlanta resident, received a bachelor’s degree in sculpture from Ole Miss, where she wanted to use burlap and other materials to make her clothes. Since
Bedsworth worked in the costume department, she helped Hendee with her project. Hendee personally brought her dresses to the gallery, and she hopes to be able to fly back for the show. Broussard, a Biloxi resident, received her degree in graphic design and specialized in hats. Broussard sent her artwork of hats and also hopes to attend the show. The Water Valley Art Crawl, which takes place once a year, will be Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The tour will include 12 stops, all within walking distance of each other. The free event will include refreshments and a display of local artists’ work, as well as allow the public to see into the private world of working artists. At the end of the night, the public is invited to an evening of live music and libations at the Lodge at Rounders Pizza Deli in Water Valley. The artists and galleries participating this year include Catherine Tollison, Jared Spears, Bozarts Gallery, J. Clayton’s Eclectic Arts, among others.

Pilates: An Introduction Pilates was originally developed by Joseph Pilates, who came to the U.S. around 1925. Pilates believed that bad posture and inefficient breathing were at the root of most health problems. The exercises he developed were used by dancers and athletes for years before they became popular in the mainstream fitness world. The benefits of Pilates are numerous, ranging from tight abs to decreased back pain, to increased flexibility. It’s also very accessible because there are alternative movements for each exercise. Its primary focuses are slow, controlled movements, deep breathing and flexibility. Pilates is my favorite group fitness class to teach, and here’s one of my favorite exercises:
The Criss Cross
1 2 3
Lie flat on your back. Start to take deep inhales through the nose and exhale through the mouth. On your next inhale, engage the abdominal muscles and bring the legs up to a table-top position (legs bent at 90 degrees, knees above the hips). Take the hands behind the head at the base of the skull and roll up the head, neck and shoulders off the floor (Make sure you keep your elbows away from the ears here to avoid pulling on the head and straining the neck).
4 5 6
On your next exhale, send out the right leg as you twist across the abs to take the right elbow to the left knee (Really squeeze those abs).
some things to keep in mind
Inhale back to center. Exhale opposite side (Keep squeezing those abs!).
This is only one exercise out of many. At the end of the day, just this one exercise isn’t going to get you in shape. But if you enjoy the slow, controlled movement and like the focus on the core and flexibility, then you should definitely try out more exercises or attend a Pilates class.
Back pain. If you have back problems or feel a strain on your lower back during this exercise, you can keep your knees bent, feet on the floor and only lift one leg at a time for the Criss Cross. Core. Keep those abs engaged! If you don’t squeeze your abs and use them for the movement, then there’s not really a point in doing the exercise. You’re just going to end up straining your neck.

Heâ€™s got a quick burst. He does a great job. Heâ€™s got common sense out there on the field. He understands and knows the game.â€? Elston said the hardest part about adjusting to the college game is catching up to the speed of the game â€” reacting to plays and learning the formations. Despite the loss to Texas, he thinks the defense is ready for SEC play. â€œOur confidence is very high right now,â€? Elston said. â€œI think we did ourselves in against Texas, it was mainly our alignment assignments, and if we pay attention to that, weâ€™ll be good.â€?

ceiver Collins Moore (first catch of the season) and freshman wide receiver Cody Core (first career catch). Sophomore wide receiver Donte Moncrief caught a touchdown for the fourth straight game, the first Rebel to do so since Mike Wallace in 2008. Three players recorded their first career interceptions. Redshirt freshman Denzel Nkemdiche intercepted a tipped pass that set up Ole Missâ€™ fourth touchdown of the game. â€œMine came as a gift,â€? Nkemdiche said. â€œI was just hustling to the ball, and it popped up. I was excited.â€? Junior cornerback Dehendret Collins and redshirt freshman Chief Brown intercepted passes in the second half. Brownâ€™s interception in the end zone with less than two minutes remaining preserved Ole Missâ€™ first shutout since 2008. â€œIt was a sigh of relief because the whole week we had been talking about getting a shutout,â€? Johnson said of Brownâ€™s interception. â€œIâ€™m sitting there at mike linebacker and the whole defense was falling apart. We get the goal line, and Chief got the pick. It was exciting.â€?

on the road in the Southeastern Conference,â€? said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. â€œWe fought hard for 90 minutes and right up to the last kick of the game. We got a great save late from Kelly (McCormick). It was a gutty performance for us against a good team that is well coached and organized. â€œOur back line is really coming together and they played fantastic,â€? Mott said. â€œMaddie Cunningham, Maddie Friedmann, Jessica Hiskey and Samantha Sanders all played well. Emily Sinovich came off the bench and gave us great minutes back there. Kelly (McCormick) was just lights out on the road in the SEC.â€? The Rebels return to action next weekend with two more road matches.

SUNDAY: OLE MISS 1, ALABAMA 0 TUSCALOOSA, Ala. â€“ Kelly McCormick came up big for the Rebels on Sunday, posting eight saves on the afternoon including a big save on a penalty kick as Ole Miss (9-2, 2-2 SEC) shutout Alabama (6-3-1, 1-2-1 SEC) at the Alabama Soccer Stadium. The Rebels claimed the road win in large part thanks to a swarming defense that was able to come up with big stops throughout the course of the match and the foot of junior forward Mandy McCalla. McCalla put the only ball in the net on the afternoon when she delivered on a penalty kick in the 60th minute to get the Rebels on the board. It was the 10th goal of the season for McCalla, who leads Ole Miss in the category and also sits atop the SEC. It was the blank sheet turned in by McCormick and the defense that stood out the most for the Rebels. Alabama had not been shut out all season until the win by the Rebels. â€œItâ€™s so hard to get a shutout

ranked team in the country as Ole Miss (8-2, 1-2 SEC) fell to No. 16 Missouri (8-1, 3-0 SEC) on Friday night. It was the first conference road trip of the season for the Rebels, who are at the start of a four-game road swing in SEC play. Bethany Bunker scored her first career goal in the first half, giving the Rebels the lead early in the first half. The second half rally from the home-standing Tigers proved to be too much as an opportunistic Missouri team converted on two scoring chances inside the box down the stretch. â€œIt was a good game,â€? said Ole Miss head coach Matthew Mott. â€œWe scored a good goal early and we played a good first half. The second half we came out and couldnâ€™t get a hold of the ball. It was a growing up moment for us on the road in front of 1,500 crazy fans and a hostile environment. We needed to find that second goal and we couldnâ€™t do it. This is a tough place to play and Missouri is the 16th-ranked team for a reason.â€?

Tulane had its largest gain of the game on its first play of the game, a 32-yard pass from quarterback Devin Powell to wide receiver Ryan Grant. Three plays later Tulane was forced to punt and snapped the ball over the punter’s head for a 31-yard loss. Ole Miss took over at Tulane’s 23-yard line, and sophomore Jeff Scott scored on a 13-yard touchdown. The rout was on. Ole Miss scored on its next three drives – all before the first quarter was over. Junior wide receiver JaMes Logan went 14 yards on a reverse, senior running back Randall Mackey ran up the middle for 28 yards and sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace connected with Donte Moncrief for a 23yard pass down the sideline. In the second quarter, however, Ole Miss managed only 60 yards of total offense and fumbled twice, as the teams went into halftime with the same score of 26-0.
“I was very irritated at halftime,” Freeze said. “I thought we lost our edge a little bit. We worked hard all morning long and all night last night gearing them up for what we knew would be a different atmosphere. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the way they played the first quarter, but we could not be more disappointed in the way we didn’t pay attention to details in the second quarter.” Wallace, who sprained his right shoulder early in the game, fumbled for the second time on the first drive of the second half, and junior Barry Brunetti came off the bench for Ole Miss. Brunetti, who quarterbacked three of the next four drives, outplayed Wallace statistically, completing 5-of7 passes for 45 yards and rushing for a game-high 67 yards on 13 carries. Wallace was 7-of-16 for 101 yards and a touchdown and ran for 36 yards on eight carries. In his first action of the second half, Brunetti led a 15play, 80-yard drive, capped by a Scott 4-yard touchdown run, his second score of the game.
In front of a crowd of 662, the Ole Miss Lady Rebel volleyball team (7-5, 1-2 SEC) defeated Mississippi State (4-8, 0-3 SEC), 3-1 (25-18, 24-26, 2523, 25-12) and earned its first Southeastern Conference win of the season Friday night at the Gillom Sports Center. The crowd was into the match from the beginning, and that was something head coach Joe Getzin said he liked to see. “Any time you can take care of home court, it’s really good,” Getzin said. “We took care of a pesky, good, defensive team in Mississippi State.” Junior outside hitter Kara Morgan led the way for the Lady Rebels, killing 15 balls, while senior outside hitter Allegra Wells earned 11 kills of her own. Ole Miss cruised to an easy 25-18 victory in the first set, behind five kills from Morgan and Wells. Wells’ first kill of the game sparked a 6-0 Lady Rebel run, pushing the lead to 7-2 and forcing Mississippi State to call an early timeout. The Bulldogs got within three at 13-10, but Ole Miss scored eight of the next 10 points, extending its lead to 20-13. Senior setter Amanda Phil“I’ve been staying focused,” Brunetti said. “I’ve been treating this year much better than last year. I’ve been staying very positive on the sidelines, helping my teammates out and whenever my number is called try to do the best I can. Because I know this year my name can be called at any time, at any moment.” Senior Bryson Rose added field goals of 40 and a career-long 47 yards to extend the lead to 39-0. On its final drive of the game, after a pass interference penalty, Tulane had the ball first-and-goal at the Ole Miss 3-yard line before redshirt freshman safety Chief Brown intercepted a pass in the end zone to preserve the shutout, the Rebels’ third interception of the game. It was Ole Miss’ first shutout since a 45-0 win against Mississippi State in 2008. “Going into the week, Coach (Dave) Wommack said one goal for the week is getting a shutout,” redshirt freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche said. “And that’s what every defensive player wanted to do. It was big time for us. We need this confi-
pot had an effective touch, disguising an assist for a kill by tapping the ball over the net into the holes of the Bulldogs’ defense. Philpot had 13 assists to go along with her two kills in the first. “She’s such a threat (offensively),” Getzin said of Philpot. “If we can get the ball up near the net, she can take care of it.” Philpot also recorded her second triple-double of the season, tallying 40 assists, 12 digs and 10 kills. “I was aggressive, and that’s what Coach has been asking,” Philpot said. “I think our team really came together, and we showed a lot of fight.” Morgan’s team-high seven kills in the second set were not enough, as the Bulldogs took a thrilling second set, 26-24. The set stayed even early on, but the Lady Rebels used a 6-0 run to break the 6-6 tie and pushed their lead to 11-6. Mississippi State fought back with six out of seven points to tie it back up at 14. Ole Miss had set point, but the Bulldogs scored three in a row to even the match at 1-1. The third set was another nail-biter, but the Lady Rebels prevailed with a 25-23 win. Ole Miss came out of halftime on fire, starting the third set with a 7-3 lead, but like the sec-
ond set, Mississippi State came back to tie it up at 11. The Bulldogs took the lead at 16-15, but the Lady Rebels battled back to earn the victory. “Mississippi State is a good team, and we shouldn’t take them for granted,” Getzin said. “The way that they played in set two is the way they’re capable. They kept the ball alive, and we got a little frustrated and started making a few errors.” Ole Miss made quick work of Mississippi State in the fourth set, winning 25-12. The set was never close, as the Lady Rebels took the first four points and then opened it up to a 17-7 lead. It was a clean set for Ole Miss, recording zero attacking errors, while Mississippi State had 10. The Lady Rebels were thrilled to get their first SEC win of the year, and it was all the more enjoyable coming against their in-state rival. “You never want to lose to State, especially at home,” Philpot said. “It’s just not an option.” The Lady Rebels return to the court Friday when they travel to Alabama.
dence going into the week we’re going into next week.” Ole Miss passed its first road test, but there’s a big difference between Tulane, with the nation’s longest losing streak at 13 games, and Alabama, the nation’s topranked team and defending national champion. “It certainly wasn’t a hostile environment like we’ll face next Saturday night,” Freeze said of Saturday’s
game at No. 1 Alabama (8:15 p.m., ESPN). “There will be some adjusting to that with these young kids and even the ones that haven’t been in that atmosphere. We’ll have some things we have to work on this week to handle that.”

REBELS ROLL IN SHUTOUT Ole Miss starts 3-1 on the season with a 39-0 win against Tulane in New Orleans this past Saturday. The Rebels look to snap a 14-game SEC losing streak, as they play eight conference games in the next nine weeks, beginning with No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa Saturday night (8:15 p.m., ESPN).
Postgame Notebook: Defense dominant, Wallace injured Saturday’s shutout win against Tulane gave the Ole Miss defense a boost in confidence, as freshman Trae Elston led the team with six tackles and a sack and three players recorded their first career interceptions.

NEW ORLEANS – Ole Miss surpassed its win total from last season and bounced back from the pre-
vious week’s 66-31 loss to Texas with a 39-0 win against Tulane in New Orleans this past Saturday. “Any time you shut somebody out at the Division I level – everyone has got

some playmakers – you’ve had a good afternoon,” head coach Hugh Freeze said. Ole Miss out-gained Tulane 450-159, including 30414 on the ground. However, it was far from a perfect performance with two failed two-point conversions on the first two scoring drives and three fumbles lost. “You look back on it and the thing that’s in my mind is all the turnovers, and putting the ball on the ground,” co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dan Werner said. “And that’s just inexcusable. “We’ve got to tighten that up. That’s two weeks in a row that we’re turning the ball over, and you can’t win in our league turning the ball over.” The Rebels dominated early, out-gaining the Green Wave 183-14 on the way to a 26-0 first-quarter lead.

NEW ORLEANS – After giving up 66 points and 676 total yards to Texas, the Ole Miss defense bounced back and held Tulane to 159 yards of total offense, including just 14 yards on the ground, in a 39-0 win on Saturday. Ole Miss also forced three turnovers and held Tulane to 2-of-16 on third-down conversions and 1-of-5 on fourthdown conversions. “Last week, defensively, we just had a meltdown,” sophomore defensive end C.J. Johnson said. “I think to bounce back with a shutout this week is real big for us.” Wallace banged up Head coach Hugh Freeze said sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace injured his right shoulder early on, and it stiffened as the game went along. “He doesn’t think it’s anything too bad, just a little sprain he’s got,” Freeze said. “We’ll get back and start ther-

The Ole Miss players wore “DW” decals on their helmets, and the number “18,” Walker’s number, was on each Tulane helmet. Tulane wore white jerseys and pants, and the coaching and support staffs wore the white official Devon Walker recovery T-shirts as part of a white-out to raise awareness and help sell the T-shirts.
