Campus preparedness for bomb threats

Ole Miss suffered its second straight loss on Saturday night at the hands of Southeastern Conference newcomer Texas A&M. The Rebels forced six turnovers, but the Aggies rallied to overcome a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to win 30-27. BY MATT SIGLER firstname.lastname@example.org
There were about seven minutes to go in the game, and Texas A&M was looking at a thirdand-19 on its own three-yard line. Ole Miss was ahead 27-17, and many of the 55,343 spectators in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium were feeling relieved. The
Rebels (3-3, 0-2 SEC) were close to getting their first Southeastern Conference win of the year and ending a 15-game SEC losing streak. Little did they know, the Rebel faithful were about to witness a young team still trying to learn how to win come up, literally, an inch short, as the Aggies (41, 2-1 SEC) pulled the win from
right under Ole Miss 30-27. “Obviously, I’m very disappointed,” head coach Hugh Freeze said in his post-game press conference. “The kids are hurting. The coaches are hurting. It’s a game we easily could have won. We’ve been looking at a lot of different things. We got into the fourth quarter with a very good football team. We
had a chance to win it and put it away, but we didn’t get a few breaks and we didn’t make a few plays. “We made some tough decisions, and I just hate that our kids are hurting so bad when we had a great chance to win the football game.” See HEARTBREAK, PAGE 9
Memorial ride for UM student Friends, family members and avid cyclists gathered in front of the Lyceum on Sunday afternoon to enjoy fellowship and participate in a bike ride to celebrate Kevser Ermin. BY ANN-MARIE HEROD email@example.com
More than 30 cyclists came out to ride on Sunday afternoon in memory of PH.D exercise science student Kevser Ermin. The path took cyclists from the Lyceum to Old Sardis Road, the site where Ermin was struck by a car while riding along her usual bike route on Oct. 7, 2011. Those in attendance who knew her personally talked about her positive spirit. She often volunteered with the local
animal shelter in Oxford. Ermin’s husband, Yavuz Ozeren, a research scientist at the university, coordinated the event with the help of Danny Klinnetz, a friend of both Ermin and Ozeren. Klinnetz also photographed the event for The Oxford Eagle. “I’m just here as a friend to just help him and make sure this is day we call can remember her by,” Klinnetz said. Ozeren said the anniversary’s See MEMORIAL, PAGE 6

After the recent bomb threat hoax at Lexington Pointe in Oxford, University of Mississippi officials are working to see that students have complete access to emergency guidelines. Some students feel safe believing the campus will be able to handle it in any way. “Nobody is ready for a bomb threat, but I believe the campus and the students would be able to follow the directions pretty well,” said Ian Ford, a political science sophomore. Ford said there should be links within the Reb Alerts that are sent out so students could easily find information on their smartphones, but he also admitted that not everyone would take advantage of that system either. “What they could do is probably put a link in that text message because everybody has a smartphone these days, and you can just click on the link and it would take you to the part of the MyOleMiss website or just the Ole Miss website and it would have the information there,” Ford said. “I think you would get a mixture of both — you would have some kids that would actually go and look at it because now that you and I are talking about this, I would probably actually go look at it, and you would have students who would just be like ‘Oh, that would never happen here.’” Junior pharmacy major Laken Burrell said the University Police Department and the administration could handle a bomb threat.

Mommy stole my common sense BY DANIEL PURDY firstname.lastname@example.org
When I enter into a classroom and see the floors covered with trash I wonder how old we are. Is it an earth-shattering task to dispose of the DM, empty bottles, loose papers, chip bags, candy wrappers or any other manner of trashcan-destined garbage? I’m of course not talking in a sweeping generalization nor am I preaching from the pulpit. I’m not a paragon either; I realize it’s a selective group with mommy syndrome. What I do understand is that we are here to grow into professionalism and part of that growth is cleaning up after yourself and to a larger degree respect for co-workers, regardless

of their position within the company. This is also indicative of self-respect. I’ve seen some students to be as blatant as trying to fit a to-go container into an overfilled trashcan and, in the end, leaving it next to the trash can on the ground. Really, just walk to the extra 20 meters to the next available. I’ve seen the “toilet bombs” created by the excessive use of toilet paper (maybe even paper towels) stuffed in the drain pipe. I really wonder if our generation is ready for the responsibility of adulthood sometimes. I believe our issues in this matter diverge deeper than just a mommy syndrome and into the ideas some hold in the student body about our blue-collar workers. We rarely comment on

I’m not talking to those individuals in the student body that are being responsible and civil human beings; I’m talking to that selective other. I’m asking that group to shed free from mommy syndrome and start acting like adults. Pick up after yourselves, be polite and understand that Ole Miss is a much larger company than just professors and students. We are all in this boat together and likewise shouldn’t alienate our coworkers simply because of our pre-held conventions on class or status. Daniel Purdy is an English senior from Oxford.

But, seriously BY WILLIAM PHILLIPS firstname.lastname@example.org
“I have some very sad news for all of you and I think, uh, sad news for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world. And that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis, Tennessee.” These are the first lines of Robert Kennedy’s impromptu speech, given to a black audience, immediately following the news of King’s death on April 4, 1968. This speech, delivered by a civil rights activist, and Democratic front-runner in a presidential campaign, not only highlights an overlap of nation and race I’m going to talk about today, but it also highlights questions I want to ask about how seriously we take ourselves as individuals and members of the nation. During these last few weeks we have seen a lot of activity on two fronts. Recently, both the Republican and Democratic parties held their conventions, and if Clint Eastwood speaking to a chair and Bill Clinton’s impressive oration are quickly downtrending in terms of immediate relevance, our attention was refocused as Obama and Romney squared off in their first presidential debate Wednesday night — an event aired and discussed by the campus community in the Overby Center auditorium. At the same time, Ole Miss has been working through the memory of integration. The activities from this past Monday, Oct. 1, commemorating the 50th anniversary of James Meredith’s entry
Getting out of my cubbyhole and experiencing the outdoors
into the university have been numerous and varied. For instance, last Wednesday I attended a fascinating lecture given by Robert Hamblin, a graduate student and a member of the National Guard at the time of Meredith’s integration. As a guardsman, Hamblin was called in to help retain order on campus during the riot at Ole Miss. However, as Hamblin noted, the number of federal troops shipped to Oxford in response to this crisis far outstripped the manpower required. Responsible for helping to maintain the staging area where these troops lodged and conducted training missions, Hamblin later developed the impression that their presence had just as much to do with the thenmounting Cuban Missile Crisis as it did with keeping the peace in a sleepy Mississippi college town. I bring this up not only to highlight an interesting overlap between local and federal concerns, but also to ask about our own relationship to the nation. Hearing the stories, and looking back over video footage, the intensity of American citizenship in this era becomes almost palpable. The day after JFK’s assassination, the stoic Walter Cronkite — in a video easily accessible through YouTube — actually choked up on the air, reporting how Kennedy’s son John, Jr. had “walked through the White House corridors complaining ‘I don’t have anyone to play with.’” Indeed, most folks can still tell you where they were when they received the news that Kennedy had been shot.
As I was trolling the Internet immersed in this epoch, I came across a famous photo of King and Malcolm X shaking hands. Looking at these two men, I imagined the immense weight each bore as they carried so many needs and desires in their every action. What a giant collision of forces between figures, and what has happened to the urgency that defined this time? Has it disappeared with the issues? I mean, we’ve more or less tackled the more heinous forms of racial violence and hate in our country, and no one is going to attempt to blow up the world anytime soon. On the other hand, a standoff between Palestine and Israel now looms, our debt crisis still verges on the absurd (though we seem to have relegated that concern to a sort of National Unconscious) and we have experienced our own immense tragedies in 9/11 and other events (Columbine, VA Tech, the Batman shooter, etc). So why does it feel like there’s so much less at stake for us? Is this just the nostalgia of history coating the events of the past with a glaze of importance? The influence of black and white memories of a time before the Internet and iPods? Has technology — with its global reach — paradoxically made us that much more selfish and isolated in our attentions? Or ... is it just me? As usual, I really don’t know.

The previous weekend I had a blast. For the first time in my life, not only did I go rock climbing, but I also went camping for three days and two nights. For a gal who ain’t outdoorsy, carries around a tissue to open doorknobs, and, worst of all, is sick with a viral infection coughing constantly it was a life-challenging experience. Not only was it my first time outdoors, but I went with a group of strangers. I watched them learn as I learned how to dig my feet into holes and wrap my fingers around the ridges of the rock, pushing myself up as I climbed. Being OCD, I had issues. There are no bathrooms in the woods except for porta potties without toilet paper and mosquitoes that land on the poop and then in my hair, I slept in a tent tall enough for me to sit Indian style, and no showering. I felt the sand beneath my socks in my tennis shoes as I walked. Climbing made my knees so sore it was unbearable to walk, and the skin on my fingers peeled from grabbing onto the sharp edges of the rocks. That night, I couldn’t take it anymore; it was hard for me to make friends with strangers in a strange environment and learn to climb. I cried, silently in my tent where no one would notice, but one of the strangers was concerned. It was hard for me to admit to them how much I regretted this trip. But I returned safely, and here I am telling you my story. This stranger asked me what I would take away from this experience, for which I had no response. I had been looking forward to this for a while; I rode for hours to get here and now I just wanted to leave. So they walked me over to the middle of

nowhere at 10 p.m. and told me to close my eyes and breath in deeply. I heard the crickets chirping, felt the gentle breeze against my frustrated cheeks, the leaves of the trees being blown by the wind, acorns falling to the ground, and finally I gently heard the stars twinkling ever so subtly. We opened our eyes and they said, “This is what you will take away from here.” It was the best feeling of my life. I walked over to a small mountain, climbed it, and just laid on it, watching the halo around the moon formed by the clouds. It was amazing. Climbing the next day, as I got to the top, I sat on a huge rock and watched everything below me — the treetops, a buzzard flying by, lakes and the city — it was beautiful. I was flying above the scenery of greenery. It made me stop and think of Mother Nature holding me as her baby. So the take home point is, number one, experience something you’ve never done before. Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.” Number two, be open-minded and make new friends. You never know who you will meet and how you will mesh. Who knows, you may have just met the best friend of your life or even your soul mate. Life is so short, so experience as much as you possibly can. So my friends, I can now say that I have climbed mountains, but I also made a new friend. When we came back to Oxford Sunday night, I had just parted from my new family.

Winter Institute receives International Award for civil and human rights The William Winter Institute for Racial Recognition at The University of Mississippi is the 2012 recipient of the International Award given by the International Association of Human Rights Agencies. BY HANNAH FRANK email@example.com
The International Association of Human Rights Agencies (IAOHRA) has named The University of Mississippi’s William Winter Institute the 2012 recipient of the International Award for the advancement of civil and human rights. The Winter Institute has been a part of the university community for 13 years and is named for the 58th governor of Mississippi and Ole Miss alumnus William F. Winter. Currently, the institute is engaged in communities in Mississippi that have a history of racial tension. Susan Glisson, director of the Winter Institute, said the award is encouragement to continue working throughout the state and abroad. “While we continue to focus our work in Mississippi, we understand that conflict around identity is a global burden,” Glisson said. “This award recognized our efforts

University students encouraged to get flu vaccines Director of the Student Health Center Pharmacy Sandra Bentley feels it’s important for students to visit the Student Health Center for a flu shot to protect themselves against common strains of the flu virus with the season beginning to change. BY KAYLEIGH SKINNER

OLE MISS PRIDE WEEK
As both flu season and finals are fast approaching, Director of the Student Health Center Sandra Bentley encourages University of Mississippi students to seek vaccinations to guard against illness. Flu vaccines are now available at the Student Health Center in two different forms this semester. According to the Centers for Disease Control, both work by inserting antibodies of the three most common types of influenza viruses of the season into the body. Two weeks after insertion, the viruses in the vaccine begin to equip one’s immune system to fight off the flu virus. Traditional shots are available for $25, and nasal mists are available for $30. Bentley says the mist is less popular. Bentley suggests students bring their insurance cards with them to the health center since some insurance companies will pay for flu

“I would be nervous, though, since I live on campus, but they’ve probably been working on it since the threats at other colleges,” Burrell said. The administration, which has designed and reviewed the emergency protocols, is also confident that the plans that have been developed will work if a bomb threat is reported. “I am confident that we have developed a process to respond to emergencies, and that we have people and access to people who are trained to deal with emergencies and situations that might arise,” Associate Provost Noel Wilkin said. “Just as we strive for excellence in our academic programs, we strive for excellence in being prepared.” Wilkin also said that many of the university staff and leaders, including Chancellor Dan Jones, are trained in the Incident Command System. ICS is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazards incident management approach developed by the federal government. The UPD also has special training to deal with bomb threats. “Our officers get training in a lot of areas,” UPD Chief Calvin Sellers said. “One of our officers, who is a graduate student that did his thesis on how to respond to bomb threats, teaches the class and also teaches other police departments around the state.”

While some of the people at the event knew Ermin personally, others came out to show support because of the event’s significance for their lives. “I’m a cyclist, and cycling safety is very important,” Oxford cyclist Jennifer Minzeko said. “It’s really important for the community to see the strengths of cyclists.” Melinda Valliant, a nutrition professor who taught Ermin and cycled with her, was also in attendance. “This is bittersweet for me,” Valliant said. “This time last year I found out I had thyroid cancer and couldn’t ride in the ride that they did in honor of her death which happened the day before I had surgery. As tragic as it is, I think her family and friends have done a great job about bringing awareness.” Young children who knew Ermin also participated in the bike route. “Kevser was really nice to me, and I loved her,” Elisa Karahan, 6, said. “She was really pretty, and she babysat me.” Lara Tabanca, Ermin’s 8-yearold niece, said she misses her “very nice and beautiful” aunt. “I miss her with all of my heart,” she said. “I’m not very happy about it, and my mom cries everyday and she says ‘I wish she was here, or they punish whoever killed her.’” Charges were never filed for the accident that led to Ermin’s death.

HEARTBREAK, continued from page 1
In a game that was thought to be a shootout with two highscoring offenses exchanging touchdowns on their first two possessions of the game, it came down to a few key plays that could’ve ultimately changed the outcome of the game. It started when senior kicker Bryson Rose missed a 40-yard field goal in the second quarter that would’ve given the Rebels a 13-10 lead. Then, with time winding down in the first half, it looked as though Ole Miss was going to carry momentum into the locker room. The Rebels had a 17-10 lead and looked to add at least a field goal before the half ended, but with 42 seconds left, Wallace dropped back and attempted a pass that saw the ball slip out of his hands and fall into the hands of senior linebacker Steven Jenkins, who returned the interception 37 yards for a touchdown, which tied the game 17-17 going into halftime. “I was trying to hit my check down,” Wallace said. “And it slipped out of my hands and fell right into (his) hands.” Rose added a 28-yard field goal in the third quarter, and on the first play of the fourth quarter, Wallace found sophomore wide receiver Donte Moncrief on a slant on a critical thirddown play to give the Rebels a 27-17 lead. At the 8:35 mark in the fourth quarter, the Aggies started a drive at their own 12-yard line. Manziel was sacked by freshman defensive tackle Issac Gross at the Texas A&M goal line. Manziel was ruled down at the 1-yard line, but Freeze decided to challenge the spot in hopes of a safety. After review, the officials upheld the ruling on the field, and that is when momeuntum start-
ed to swing in favor of Texas A&M. A 2-yard run on second down set up the pivotal third-and-19 that ultimately changed the complexion of the game. Manziel stepped back and hurled a pass down the sideline. Sophomore cornerback Senquez Golson was in position and looked to have an interception or pass breakup, but freshman wide receiver Mike Evans reached over Golson and reeled in the 32-yard pass to give the Aggies a critical first down. After that, Texas A&M had a 36-yard run by junior running back Ben Malena and capped off the scoring drive with a 29yard run by Manziel for a touchdown to cut the deficit to four. Ole Miss got the ball back with 6:24 left to play, and the Rebels were looking to preserve the win. Junior running back Jeff Scott had five straight carries and the Rebels were forced into a fourth-and-inches situation from their own 39-yard line. Ole Miss elected to go for it and was unable to convert on a questionable play call from the shotgun, giving the ball to Texas A&M with three minutes left in the game. “It looked like if they would have rolled the ball it would have touched the chain,” Freeze said. “I think that call should have been reviewed, but it is what it is. We could have made an inch and probably put it away, but we didn’t. “We haven’t won an SEC game in however long it’s been, but I was just going for it. Period. Everybody can sit back and second guess, but I was giving our kids what I thought was the best chance to win the game. Obviously, I wish I would have called something different now, but we would go for it again.” The Aggies capitalized on the opportunity when Manziel found senior wide receiver Ryan Swope from 20 yards out
to give the Aggies a 30-27 lead. Ole Miss got the ball back with 1:46 left and no timeouts from their own 31-yard line. On the second play of the drive, Wallace found Moncrief on a 32-yard pass that moved the ball to the Texas A&M 32-yard line. However on the next play, Wallace was intercepted by junior defensive back Toney Hurd Jr. “I didn’t see the guy,” Wallace said. “I was thinking we can’t take a sack here and get out of field-goal range. I had a guy in my face and tried to throw it to my short guy, but I didn’t see him.” Despite the loss, the Rebels received a great effort on both sides of the ball. Defensively, Ole Miss forced six turnovers — four fumbles and two interceptions. Coming into the game, Texas A&M only had one turnover all season. Sophomore safety Cody Prewitt had another big game with six tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception. “We really emphasized getting turnovers going into the game, and we did that,” defensive coordinator Dave Wommack said. “We stopped some drives doing that, but in the end, we weren’t able to do it. It’s disappointing. You figure with a 10-point lead at six minutes you’re going to win the game.” Offensively, the Rebels had 464 yards of total offense, including Wallace’s 305 through the air on 20-of-34 passing and 31 yards on the ground with two total touchdowns. “I thought I had my best game of the season until the final play of the game,” Wallace said. “We took care of the football, and I think I prepared this week better than I have ever prepared for a football game and it definitely helped me out. It just crushes you when on the very last play of the game you do that.” Scott led the way for the Rebels on the ground with 108 yards

and a touchdown on 21 carries. The receiving core got plenty of action with Moncrief and senior Ja-Mes Logan both catching six passes for 73 and 53 yards, respectively, followed by sophomore Vince Sanders with five catches for a team-leading 81 yards. Although Ole Miss came up short, the team is focused on Saturday’s game against
Auburn. Kickoff from VaughtHemingway Stadium is set for 11:21 a.m. on the SEC Network. “Auburn is a good football team,” Wallace said. “We’ll have another chance to get an SEC win. We just have to come back and prepare for them next week.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_sports and @SigNewton_2 on Twitter.

Volleyball falls to Kentucky, Arkansas at home The Ole Miss volleyball team falls to 2-5 in Southeastern Conference play after losing a pair of weekend home matches against Kentucky and Arkansas. BY CAMAL PETRO firstname.lastname@example.org
FRIDAY: Kentucky 3, Ole Miss 0 The Ole Miss Lady Rebels returned home to the Gillom Sports Center on Friday, after a weekend of being on the road, to face off against the Kentucky Wildcats. Ole Miss totaled 16 errors, losing in straight sets (25-17, 25-18, 25-19) to the Wildcats. “You have a very talented Kentucky team that played pretty flawless tonight,” head coach Joe Getzin said. Kentucky (10-6, 4-2 SEC) took the first set with the score of 25-17. The set stayed even early on, as the teams were tied nine times before the Wildcats grabbed control of the game with a 15-11 lead. Kentucky cruised the rest of the set, not letting the Lady Rebels get within two points. Senior outside hitter Allegra Wells led the way for Ole Miss (8-7, 2-4 SEC), but the team’s six errors proved to be the difference. The Wildcats won the second set, 25-18, in relaxed fashion. Once Kentucky took Oct7_MCAN_46Web an early 3-2 lead, it was all
Wildcats from there on out. A 4-0 Kentucky run helped stretched the lead to 18-11, and Ole Miss could never recover. Another six-error set plagued the Lady Rebels’ offense, and Wells was held to one kill in four total attacks. “The number of errors that we had, combined with giving them too many easy balls, creates for them hitting so well,” Getzin said. The Wildcats claimed the third set and the match with a 25-19 score. Kentucky jumped all over the Lady Rebels early in the set, scoring the first four points and forcing a timeout by Ole Miss. After the timeout, Ole Miss scored seven of the next 10 points to tie the game at seven. The Wildcats held off the Ole Miss attack, coasting to a match victory. Junior outside hitter Kara Morgan led the Lady Rebels with 10 kills on 30 total attacks, and Wells added nine of her own. Senior setter Amanda Philpot recorded 27 assists and senior defensive specialist Ashley Veach led with eight digs. The Wildcats had a significant advance in digs, almost doubling Ole

Miss in that category, 39-21. SUNDAY: Arkansas 3, Ole Miss 1 After being swept by Kentucky on Friday, the Lady Rebels returned to the court in a matchup with the Arkansas Razorbacks. After losing the first set, Arkansas won three straight sets to defeat Ole Miss 3-1 (22-25, 25-16, 25-21, 25-13). “I think everyone can see
that we can do good things,” Getzin said. “We’re just giving up bunches of points.” Led by junior outside hitter Kara Morgan’s four kills, Ole Miss (8-8, 2-5 SEC) won a close first set, 25-22. The Lady Rebels built an early 4-1 lead, but could not pull away from Arkansas. Down 17-14, Arkansas scored the next seven out of 10 points to take their first lead of the set

at 21-20. Ole Miss was able to counter by scoring five of the last six points to finish off the set. “Once again Kara Morgan had a great night,” Getzin said. “She’s putting up some stellar numbers for us.” Arkansas (14-4, 6-2 SEC) scored 15 of the last 18 rallies to win the second set, 25-16. Down 13-10, the Razorbacks used a 6-0 run to grab control of the set. The Lady Rebels were only able to produce six kills in the set after tallying up 16 in the first. After the Razorbacks built an eight-point lead, they held off an attempted comeback, winning the third set, 25-21. Trailing 17-9, Ole Miss fought back to cut the score to 2320, but it was not enough. Arkansas jumped all over Ole Miss in the fourth set, winning 25-13 to claim the match. The Razorback jumped out to a 12-3 lead. Ole Miss cut the lead to five, but Arkansas proved to be too much for the Lady Rebels. “When passing breaks down in this game, everyone gets frustrated,” Getzin said. “You can’t keep your offense in sync going forward and that happened to us a little bit, you know, we’ve got to clean that up.” Morgan’s 14 kills on 46 total attacks led Ole Miss, and no other player had more than 16 attacks. Senior setter Amanda Philpot recorded 35 assists and senior outside hitter Whitney Craven led the Lady Rebels with 12 digs. The Lady Rebels return to action this with road matches against Florida on Friday and Georgia on Sunday.

FRIDAY: GEORGIA 2, OLE MISS 0 The Ole Miss women’s soccer team returned to the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium Friday night after a tough four-game road swing. The scoring woes continued for the Rebels as they fell to the Lady Bulldogs of Georgia 2-0. “I thought we moved the ball well, but in the end you got to score to win,” head coach Matt Mott said. “We didn’t, and it is disappointing.” The Rebels (9-5, 2-5 SEC) managed to pressure Georgia early in the first half, but the Bulldogs’ back line was able to withstand the early threat. Georgia (6-6-2, 2-3-1 SEC) broke the tie with a score by sophomore midfielder/forward Jenna Owens when she chipped the ball over sophomore goalkeeper Kelly McCormick. The Bulldogs took the lead into halftime, and the second half started the same way as the first with both teams pressuring but not able to capitalize. Ole Miss came out of the locker room looking like a far more aggressive team and kept the ball in the Georgia half for a majority of the second half. Georgia senior goalkeeper Ashley Baker made three saves on the night in keeping the Rebels out of the net. The Lady Bulldogs gave themselves a little insurance with a second goal in the 75th minute. Junior
midfielder Madeline Barker earned the score with a shot off a pass from a fellow teammate. The score all but sealed Ole Miss’ fate as the Lady Rebels could not generate any momentum all night. This once-deadly offense has been silent since the start of conference play. Mott feels it is just his team not being able to get themselves into position for a chance to score. “I feel like there is a lid on the goal,” Mott said. “We cannot crack the goal. We are not creating enough dangerous stuff.” SUNDAY: OLE MISS 2, KENTUCKY 0 Riding a three-game losing streak, the Ole Miss soccer team desperately needed a win. Sliding back in the Southeastern Conference standings during the past couple weeks, the Lady Rebels had their backs against the wall, and they responded in a big way with a 2-0 win over Kentucky. “It was a total team performance today,” head coach Matt Mott said. “I thought that we were good in all three areas. Kentucky is a very good team. For us to come in and get a 2-0 win is very good result for us, and it puts us right back in the middle of everything.” Ole Miss (10-5, 3-5 SEC) was in control for most of the match, occupying Kentucky’s (8-5-1, 3-4-1 SEC) end of the field. The first half was a tough defensive battle in which both Ole Miss and Kentucky stifled offensive threats. Breaking
through in the 41st minute, Ole Miss freshman forward Sara Coleman netted her second goal of the season on a cross in the box from junior forward Rafaelle Souza. “We all knew we had been struggling the past two or three games to get the ball in the net,” Coleman said. “For me to break (the lid off the goal), it was just amazing.” Ole Miss took a 1-0 lead into halftime, outshooting Kentucky five to four in the first half. The second half saw Ole Miss continuing to pressure the Lady Wildcats. Freshman forward/midfielder Olivia Harrison provided the second score of the game with an unassisted strike in the 68th minute. The goal was Harrison’s sixth for the season. The insurance goal looked to be enough as the Ole Miss defense proved too much for the Wildcats. There was a different feel in the stands today as members of two Ole Miss fraternities were in attendance adding some intensity to the game. “It was awesome,” Mott said. “They were loud and crazy, and it’s what we need all the time, and certainly, we drew from that energy and helped us win the game.” Ole Miss is back on the road next weekend with matches at Vanderbilt on Friday and South Carolina on Sunday.

Lutjen earns berth in Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Indoor
TULSA, Okla. – Ole Miss men’s tennis senior Jonas Lutjen picked up another piece of hardware Sunday, winning the ITA All-American consolation final with a straight set win over Ohio State’s Connor Smith at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center. With the win, Lutjen earned an automatic berth to
the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships in New York Nov. 3-6. The final match had to be played indoors again due to cool temperatures. Lutjen won the first set and then the two battled in the second set before Lutjen got the break for the 6-3, 6-4 victory. It was his fifth win in a row after dropping a close first round match to Georgia’s Nathan Pasha. In the consolation round, Lutjen defeated five ranked players to improve his record to 13-2 this fall. “It was a great tournament,” Lutjen said. “I beat a lot of great players. I have to give a big thanks to coach (Toby) Hansson
and our trainer, Ben (Angle). I look forward to building on the confidence of this week to make the fall a special one with the remaining tournaments.” “Winning the backdraw is a true testament to Jonas’ excellent work ethic and never say die attitude,” said associate head coach Toby Hansson. “It’s always hard to play well in the finals in a pressured situation. Jonas didn’t play at the same level as he did in previous matches, but he was able to overcome the adversity, keep his head held high and come out on top.” Next up for the Rebels will be the ITA Southern Region Championships in Oct. 18-22 in Auburn, Ala.

‘we’ve got to start winning games’ DECK: Saturday’s 30-27 loss to Texas A&M wasn’t what head coach Hugh Freeze was looking for, but it’s a step in the right direction for a team that hasn’t won a Southeastern Conference game in nearly two years. BY BENNETT HIPP firstname.lastname@example.org
In the week leading up to this past Saturday’s game against Texas A&M, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze spoke about his team needing to take the next step. That step, he said, was “to get into the fourth quarter with some of these conference opponents that are really good teams and us learn from that regardless of the outcome.” The Rebels clearly did that, as they opened up a 2717 lead over the Aggies early in the fourth quarter. “We got into the fourth quarter with a very good football team, and they’re going to win a lot of games,” Freeze said. “We had a chance to win and put it away. We didn’t get a few breaks, we didn’t make some plays, we made some tough decisions. I just hate that our kids are hurting so bad when (we) had a chance to win the football game.” However, after watching that 10-point lead slip away in an eventual 30-27 loss, Ole Miss’ players weren’t satisfied with just being in the game during the fourth quarter. “Eventually, we give great efforts; we’ve got to start winning football games,” sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace said. “We can say we had a great effort all we want, but if we’re not winning, it doesn’t really matter.” Junior cornerback Charles Sawyer said it’s past the time to be happy about competing in games. “Absolutely. We’ve got to start winning games,” Sawyer said. “The effort is there, and the passion is there, we’ve just got to win games.
We’ve got to come together as a team like we’ve been doing.” Wallace said that the team was “crushed” in the locker room after the game, but that’s a good thing to see, Sawyer said after the game. “Everybody’s disappointed, and everybody should be,” he said. “Nobody should be proud that we kept a good game and it came down to the fourth quarter. Everybody’s disappointed because everybody wants to win. “That’s what changed the program, not just one or three people want to win, everybody wants to win.” Ole Miss gets another shot at ending its 16-game SEC
losing streak when Auburn comes to town on Saturday. Sophomore safety Cody Prewitt, who had six tackles, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception against Texas A&M, isn’t worried about Saturday’s loss having a lingering effect moving forward. “It’s not going to be difficult to overcome,” Prewitt said. “We’re going to come in (Sunday), we’re going to fix our mistakes and this game is forgotten. We’re going to move on to next week and keep working hard.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @ thdm_sports and @bennetthipp on Twitter.
