Oxford Drug Enforcement focusing on MDMA




The name may sound innocent, but there is much more to the drug Molly than meets the eye. “I’m aware that it is very ac-

cessible to most students on campus who look for it,” said Joshua Magruder, staff counselor with The University of Mississippi Counseling Center. “I can’t speak directly to the numbers or anything, but qualitatively and through my experience at the counseling

center, I know it’s readily available, and it’s out there.” Formally known as MDMA, Molly is a purer form of ecstasy that’s gaining popularity in Oxford and at Ole Miss. “I wouldn’t say it is the most prominent substance in Oxford by any means, but I would say that it is definitely a drug that has increased over the last five years,” said Keith Davis, captain of the Lafayette County Metro Narcotics Unit. “You know, it went from nonexistent and all of the sudden it hits the scene and it starts becoming kind of big. It’s starting to make a pretty big surge.” Though Davis said there have been no reported deaths associated with Molly in Lafayette County, four recent deaths attributed to the drug have thrust it into the national spotlight. According to Reuters, in the month of August alone, a student from the University of New Hampshire and one from the University of Virginia died after taking what they believed to be Molly, and two more people of college age died over the same time period. The number of visits to United States emergency rooms involving MDMA has increased by 123 percent since 2004,

according to the Drug Abuse Warning Network. Davis predicts that well over 100 people in the Oxford community are currently using this drug. He went further, saying that the number continues to rise, especially among university students. Morgan, a junior at Ole Miss who did not want to give her full name for fear of legal consequences, said she was 18 when she first tried Molly. “I was at a concert, and my friends had it. We were wanting to have a good time, so we took some,” Morgan said. “It makes you feel really happy. You just really want to talk to everybody. You get energized, and everything is just awesome.” Morgan said she had not heard about the deaths associated with Molly. “I’ve never really thought about what it does to your brain, but I’m very cautious with it. I would never take more than the suggested dosage,” Morgan said. Taking more than the recommended amount is what has led many admirers of Molly to their demise. “You take about a tenth of a gram, which they put inside of a capsule. If you take more than

two- to three-tenths at a time, it could possibly kill you,” Davis said. “The dealers are advising the people they are selling it to not to take more than that because it could kill them because of the purity factor of it.” Although Molly is purer than ecstasy in chemical makeup, that does not mean it is less toxic to the human body. “Neither one are safe,” Magruder said. “Molly actually has been proven to eat parts of the brain, quite literally, causing holes in your brain with extended use. That can result from ecstasy or the use of Molly.” If the health risks aren’t enough, consider this –– Molly is what the Drug Enforcement Agency classifies as a Schedule I controlled substance. Possession of any amount of the drug could amount to prison time. “If we catch you with residue, we’re liable to charge you,” Davis said. “When I say ‘residue’ that means an empty baggie with dust in it. It’s zero tolerance on our end, and that’s the law. We’re not overstepping the boundaries of the law. That’s what the law states, and that’s what we’ll enforce.”

Flu season: the risks and rewards of vaccination BY BRIDGET QUINN

With the advent of flu season, pharmacists and physicians alike encourage getting vaccinated. “This year the (CVS) pharmacy has already given 82 shots, including the 28 within the past week. There have already been 16 reported cases of the flu in Oxford this semester,” said Kate Mislan, CVS pharmacy intern. A common myth concerning flu shots is that getting the vaccination can actually cause the flu, but CVS pharmacy technician Natasha Mountjoy said this is not


the case. “Flu shot vaccines do not cause the flu because it contains killed viruses, also called inactivated vaccines,” Mountjoy said. “The flu-like symptoms that occur are your body sending off signals reacting to the vaccine.” Mild side effects from the flu shot are fever, aches, headaches, itching, fatigue and soreness or redness where the shot was given. “We highly recommend the flu shot,” Mountjoy said. “Especially with the epidemic last flu season.” University of Mississippi Student Health Center Director Tra-

vis Yates agreed that most people have heard false statements about the vaccine. “People might insist they got the flu after the flu shot, but from what researchers have found, it is not possible,” Yates said. “The shot takes a minimum of two weeks to become effective, and protection lasts up to several months to a year.” Reports on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website show that a new, quadrivalent vaccine was created for the 2013-2014 flu season and protects against four strains of the

virus. However, this category of immunization is not available at the Student Health Center ordinarily. “We use the regular vaccine, but if a student needs the quadrivalent we will order it,” Yates said. “The nasal spray vaccine uses a live virus, but it’s weakened. It is targeted to patients 2 years old up to 50 years old. It doesn’t give you the flu, but some patients get a sore throat for a day.” In the Vaccine Information Statement, listed possible side effects with the nasal spray include

runny nose, wheezing, headache, vomiting, muscle aches and fever, among others. In addition to a nasal mist, there are multiple options to receive the immunization through an injection. “For those who can’t get the nasal spray and are not fond of needle sticks, there’s a micro-needle that delivers the same protection in a shallower shot called an intradermal needle,” Mountjoy said. “The needle is 90 percent shorter than the regular needle; it is only injected into the second layer of skin.”

Think the Shutdown was Bad? It Didn’t Have to Be


PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser

As seems to be the case with everything regarding national politics, the Republican and Democrat leaders were bickering and the public only heard what the media let it. The recurring theme reported by the media was that the Republicans were to blame for the horrors of the shutdown. As anyone in Politics 101 could tell you, the House of Representatives is granted the constitutional right to grant or withhold money and funding. Thus, the House was within its grounds when it left out funding for Obamacare, though the administration will have you believe that was not the case. Additionally, the Senate was within its constitutionally granted powers to refuse to accept the bills from

the House that leave out funding for Obamacare. Both chambers of Congress are acting within their powers; however, only one provided a plan that would have prevented the shutdown — that is the Republican-led House. The Senate rejected the plan to fund the government, which is what led to the shutdown. Further, the media, trumpeting Obama, claimed that the Republicans should “do their job” and compromise in order to end the shutdown. Apparently, Obama believes that compromise means the Republicans should cave in to his demands. Meanwhile, the administration ensured that the effects of the shutdown were overblown. Look no further than the World War II Memorial, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is not regularly staffed. WWII veterans had been planning a visit to the memorial for some time, yet the administration made sure that barricades were put in place to restrict

access to the memorial. The Republican National Committee offered to cover costs associated with keeping the war memorial open during the shutdown, only for the offer to be refused by the administration. Yet, Obama continues to claim that the Republicans are to blame. Additionally, the House attempted multiple times to fund certain aspects of the federal government in a piecemeal approach, focusing on the areas that impact Americans the most. One example is a bill that would fund the National Institutes of Health, ensuring that pertinent cancer research would continue despite the shutdown. House Republicans also attempted to pass bills that would fund Veterans Affairs and national parks. The White House budget office, however, stated that Obama strongly opposed those bills and would veto them if they had reached his desk. Further still, one park ser-

vice ranger in Washington went public with his outrage over the shutdown — not at the Republicans, though. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” he said. During the shutdown, Obama still received the services of a personal chef, who was considered essential, yet residents of private homes that sit on federal land were forced out of the houses that they outright own. Despite all of this, there were those who continued to blame the Republicans for the shutdown and repeat every word that comes out of Obama’s mouth as gospel. All it takes is looking beyond party affiliation in order to get to the truth — Obama, not the Republicans, was responsible for the shutdown. Unfortunately, that seems to be expecting too much of the public. Trenton Winford is a senior public policy leadership major from Madison.




America in the Middle East BY: ORION WILCOX

In the early morning hours of Oct. 5, 2013, the streets in the Libyan capital of Tripoli are largely empty except for those making their way to the mosque. The only sound is the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. Nazih al-Ruqai, a man in his mid40s, exits his home, and a group of camouflage-clad commandos surround him, load him into the back of a black SUV and whisk him away. The camouflaged men are members of the elite U.S. Delta Force, and they are taking Ruqai, also known as Abu Anas al-libi, to be indicted by a U.S. federal judge in New York in connection with the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Tanzania and Kenya. Libyan officials immediately demand an explanation for the rendition. They assert that the U.S. gave them no prior notice of the operation. U.S. officials argue that the operation comes under the auspices of apprehending terrorists who threaten U.S. national security, a mission to which the new Libyan government has offered its support. The Libyan government continues to consider the operation a “kidnapping”; however, the official response is muted. The Libyan minister of justice Salah al-Mirghani has stated that “while what the Americans did was wrong, we don’t want to go back to the old days and we hope this will not damage relations.” Al-Mirghani is referring to the days prior to the popular revolu-

tion that toppled Muammar Qaddafi, the former dictator who ruled the North African nation for over 40 years. The U.S. had no official diplomatic relations with Qaddafi, a known financer of international terrorism. The tepid and seemingly insecure response of the Libyan government to the U.S. action is representative of the newly forming political and diplomatic environment in the Middle East. In the wake of the “Arab Spring,” the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq and new elections in Iran and Israel, U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East has entered a new phase. In Libya’s neighbor, Egypt, the diplomatic situation is no more stable. The U.S. has had to contemplate its response to the ousting of democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi in June of this year. At first, the White House chose not to term the Army’s actions as a “military coup,” which would have required the termination of all U.S. military aid. However, after the interim government’s decision to clear protesters from one of Cairo’s public squares, a decision which led to hundreds of deaths, the U.S. canceled the annual Bright Star joint military exercises. In recent weeks the U.S. has frozen the delivery of weapons systems and some aid until progress is made towards a return to civilian rule. Egyptian army commander Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi has responded, calling the U.S. decision welcome and long overdue. Sisi argues that Egypt can find aid from different nations, including Russia, and that his country should move away from its reliance on the U.S. Many Egyptians have applauded Sisi’s rhetoric. As some countries such as Syria

continue to experience violent revolutions fought to depose autocratic rulers and others such as Egypt and Libya continue to determine their political identity, the U.S. has the challenge of reinterpreting its diplomatic relations with a dynamic region. Revolutions and reforms may be shuffling the political landscape of the region, but the results of two election years may have the largest effect on the U.S.’s diplomatic positioning. The 2013 Knesset elections in Israel reaffirmed the Israeli people’s commitment to security with Benjamin Netanyahu remaining in power. In Iran the 2013 elections, while not necessarily respected by the West as inclusive, led to the election of a relative moderate in Hassan Rouhani. Following the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York earlier this month, Rouhani reached out to President Barack Obama in the first telephone call between the two countries’ leaders in more than 30 years. Netanyahu, who views Iran’s seeking of nuclear fission as a direct threat to his nation’s very existence, does not see Rouhani’s olive branch as a positive development. In his speech at the U.N., Netanyahu called Rouhani “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.” The Obama administration is challenged with navigating this fast-changing landscape in order to accomplish its many regional goals, which include seeking progress in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, finding an answer to the Iranian nuclear dilemma and promoting stability in the wider region. With change come fresh opportunities as well as new challenges. Orion Wilcox is a senior economics major from Bay St. Louis.

The many driving hazards of Oxford BY KATIE WILLIAMSON

After having lived in Oxford for 23 years, I have unfortunately come to unwillingly accept the driving hazards unique to home. Years of studying have magnified the subtleties of these problems. I propose that Oxford residents as well as Ole Miss students, faculty and staff consider these terms when driving. The Square Abusers: New students and tourists are helpless when it comes to the rules of driving on the Square. They neither yield nor stop when directed and may circle multiple times. If you are one of these people, take note. The very inside circle lane has the right of way, the next square lane yields only to the inside circle and the traffic entering the Square yields to both square and circle lanes. The other option for the Square abusers is to avoid entering the Square. Sorority Sidestepping: Named for the infamous complication of crossing Sorority Row, sidestepping occurs when a student jaywalks across the street in such a way that stops the flow of traffic for as long as possible. The diagonal path of motion is almost parallel to the actual road, but does end on the other side of the road. This move is rarely performed near a crosswalk. Rubber Body Armor: This is the imaginary armor worn by many street-crossers on and off campus to guard against oncoming traffic. The main hazards are the speed and uncertainty with which they choose to scamper in front of you, and said scampering can be performed with or without a cell phone. The Rich Witch: Witches (male

and female) will blow through stop signs, speed and, regardless of their hangtags, park in your spot. I assume they are extremely wealthy because of the lack of concern for the numerous tickets they accumulate. Come-Get-Me Lights: Many students have decided that they are allowed to stop in the middle of the road and run into a building as long as they have their hazard lights on. As parking enforcers will tell you, these lights are actually very useful. They scream, “Come get me.” You are helping them, not protecting yourself. Freshman Peek-a-boo: There is absolutely no way to know when these people will cross the street. The offender will take a few steps on the crosswalk, stop, look at the car, step back, wave the car through, run halfway across the street, stop and finally cross. Bicycle Entitlement: I love bike riding. I love the fact that people are environmentally friendly and economical, but we all know the bad ones. These are friends who preach about sharing the road and yet manage to avoid following any of its rules. They will blow through stop signs, cut you off and almost kill you while you’re walking. For people who suffer because of these entitled cyclists, I suggest a stick in the spokes. If you do not fit in any of these categories, I thank you! You are a good person and I encourage you to adopt these terms as a way to vent frustrations about the Oxford driving hazards. For people on this list, please reference the Park and Ride video starring Dr. Donald Cole. Katie Williamson is a senior print journalism and fine arts double major from Oxford.

Annual Faculty Recital Series Returns

TYLER JACKSON | The Daily Mississippian

The University of Mississippi’s Department of Music has been busy organizing its lineup of musical entertainment for this year. The department started its annual Faculty Recital Series Oct. 21. John Schuesselin, organizer of the series and participant, said the recital “highlights the artists in the university faculty music department” and showcases the many talented professors who are teaching the students in the

department. This series, totaling five concerts, is made up of solo recitals and chamber recitals. “The Monday, Oct. 21 performance contains the biggest performance groups and is the most colorful, which definitely makes for a very exciting show,” said Michael Rowlett, faculty clarinet player. However, it will not be the only interesting show in the series, as all the performances have a theme or topic of some sort that will entertain the audience.

“It’s interesting because it brings different faculty musicians, which usually play separately, together,” Rowlett said. The series will showcase the talents of faculty members in the Faculty Woodwind Quintet and the Oxford Piano Trio, as well as other faculty. According to the music department’s website, the Woodwind Quintet has been giving concerts for the Oxford-University community since 1994 and has also performed across the Midsouth. The Oxford Piano Trio was created in 1988 and

has presented many works of classical literature, in addition to showcasing new works. During Monday’s performance the Woodwind Quintet performed a set of Hungarian folk dances by composer Ferenc Farkas and the Sextet for Piano and Winds by Poulenc with Stacy Rodgers, while the Piano Trio presented Robert Schumann’s Quintet for Piano and Strings along with performers Joshua Howard on the violin and Yan Mao on the viola. Rowlett shared a sneak peak as to what the second perfor-

mance on Nov. 18 will entail. Concertgoers can look forward to “a program where all the music is based on popular music. There will be a performance of music that was originally written for a TV show and pieces inspired by Nirvana and Alice in Chains.” All of the performances are on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. in Nutt Auditorium. The performances are spread throughout the months of October through April, and student tickets are sold at the UM Box Office in the Student Union.

Pride Week provides both encouragement and education

Curtesy of the UM Pride Nework

Senior Bio-Chemistry major Nicholas Boullard carries the pride network flag in the rain during the Mid-South Pride Parade in Memphis Saturday Oct 12.


The week of Oct. 5, The University of Mississippi celebrated its second annual ALLIES Pride Week. Established in 2012 by former Associated Student Body President Kimbrely Dandridge, the primary goal of Pride Week is to recognize the contributions of the LGBTQ community for what they bring to the university in terms of diversity and individual leadership. The acronym LGBTQ stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer.” Pride Week events included distribution of purple ribbons for students to wear in support of the LGBTQ community, as well as the opportunity to talk to members of The Pride Network, an organization that advocates education and understanding for people of all sexual orientations. This year’s Pride Week was considered especially significant

in light of the events surrounding the performance of “The Laramie Project” earlier this month at which several students heckled performers with homophobic slurs. “The Laramie Project” tells the story of University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard, who was tortured and beaten to death by homophobic classmates in 1998. In response to calls for punishment, both university officials and students said education of the uninformed was of paramount importance to prevent anything of this nature from happening again. An important part of Pride Week and the response to “The Laramie Project” is Ally training. ALLIES is a program coordinated by the University Counseling Center and Outreach Programming in conjunction with the Pride Network. Those who wish to be considered part of the Ally network are asked to attend a training ses-

sion during which they are educated on the challenges faced by sexually diverse students, including the ordeal of “coming out” to their parents. Olivia Cooper, sophomore chemical engineering major and community assistant, is one such Ally, and she also attended the Oct. 1 performance of “The Laramie Project.” “A big part of training are exercises that really show the difficulty in coming out and life after that,” Cooper said. “I feel like if those in attendance during that performance had been through Ally training, they never would have made those remarks, or certainly would have thought twice about it.” Many residence halls are encouraging their community assistants to undergo Ally training to encourage increased sensitivity to the varied needs of their residents. At present, all but two CAs at the Residential College are certified Allies. Nicholas Boullard, community assistant and senior biochemistry major, expressed his desire for all of the CAs in the Residential College to complete Ally training. “It’s about making the university’s climate safer for all students, regardless of sexual orientation,” Boullard said. “It’s my belief that education is the only way to decrease the chance of what happened at ‘The Laramie Project’ from happening again.” In addition to Pride Week, the Pride Network will be hosting the Breaking Silence Symposium April 19 and 20 next semester. April 19 will also mark the 17th annual Day of Silence to call for an end to harassment and bullying of LGBTQ students. Pride Network meetings are held on the first and third Fridays of each month at 5:30 p.m. in Barnard Hall.


Ole Miss students among sentenced in fake ID bust Ole Miss students among sentenced in fake ID bust ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The masterminds of a fake ID manufacturing and distribution ring have been ordered to serve jail time, participate in community service and pay a $5,000 fine. University of Georgia Student William Trosclair and former Gainesville State University student Tyler Andrew Ruby pleaded guilty last week to manufacturing false identification documents and manufacturing and distributing documents containing unauthorized government seals.

Investigators have said they used couriers to take customers’ photos in dorm rooms, collected personal information for the IDs and delivered the products for between $50 and $100. The Athens Banner-Herald reports the two must serve between 60 and 120 days in detention and five years of probation. Twenty-one people, including students from Northwestern University, the University of Alabama and The University of Mississippi, were also indicted in the case.

REBELS, continued from page 8 son-ending injury, had started in five of seven games this season and had set the record for the best freshman season for a tight end in program history. The Powder Springs, Ga., native has racked up 265 yards on 20 receptions to go along with three touchdowns this season. “I think he was on track to be a freshman All-American,” Freeze said. “He’s a tremendous kid and was very important to our scheme. We don’t have another one that’s like him, that can win some one-on-ones in space and do the blocking that we were asking him to do.” Without Engram’s presence, the Rebels will rely on junior Nick Parker, who was moved to tight end this season. Parker had the first touchdown of his career this past weekend in the win over LSU on a 3-yard reception. Other injuries Like last week, Ole Miss is still dealing with multiple injuries on both sides of the ball. On Monday, Freeze said other than the guys who are out for the rest of the season, only freshman defensive end

Robert Nkemdiche and junior defensive end Carlos Thompson are definitely out for Saturday’s game versus Idaho. Sophomore cornerback Mike Hilton and senior defensive end Cameron Whigham are questionable, while sophomore linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche, junior linebacker Keith Lewis and senior cornerback Charles Sawyer are all probable. Senior running back Jeff Scott could play, according to Freeze, but he said he may limit him due to the depth at running back. Junior linebacker Serderius Bryant could also be back in action Saturday if he clears the concussion protocol tests this week. Whigham honored Whigham was named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week Monday after helping Ole Miss upset No. 6 LSU 27-24. In the contest, Whigham accounted for just two tackles, but he had a sack, quarterback hurry and a pass breakup. It is the first SEC weekly award he’s received in his career.

continued from page 8 open up a hole in the middle of the field. Those holes allowed sophomore running backs Jaylen Walton and I’Tavius Mathers to cut back and run for 157 yards on 21 carries combined. They led a rushing attack that posted its highest yards per carry average and first rushing touchdown since Sept. 14. The best example was on Walton’s 26-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter. Ole Miss used a pulling guard and Parker, who was in for the injured Engram, to seal off the defensive end and linebacker on the right side of the formation. The rest of the offensive line blocked left, picking up the remaining four defenders in the box. This opened a hole right up the middle that Walton cut back through.Walton then used his speed to run past the LSU defensive backs and found the end zone. Engram was a matchup problem for defenses. He could line up inside as a tight end or outside as a receiver and find openings over the middle of the field in the Rebel passing game.

pretty physical,” senior offensive lineman Emmanuel McCray said of Engram. “He’s always pretty good at blocking out on the edge, which was very pivotal. He was just another wrinkle that defenses had to face.” Now, Engram is done for the season after having surgery on his ankle. This puts Ole Miss in a difficult situation, as there are no other tight ends like Engram on the roster. Parker, who plays this position in the Brunetti package, will see more playing time, but he is not the same weapon that can stretch the field like Engram. But look for Ole Miss to continue to use this formation to foster a competent inside running game. If they can force defenses to honor the inside runs, it could open up the outside runs, like the 75-yard touchdown that beat Vanderbilt, for Scott, Walton and Mathers. “It’ll make teams have to play us different, especially with the defensive ends,” McCray said. “So when Jeff gets back, he just has to trust us and hit those holes. They’ll be there.” Ole Miss saw improved play from its offensive line as well. After the losses to Alabama and Auburn, Freeze cited oneon-one battles as a weakness for the offensive line.

back to Walton’s touchdown. There were six Tigers in the box, and Ole Miss had five offensive linemen and a tight end to block. There were no double teams; everyone had to win their one-on-one battle. And on that touchdown, they did. Winning those battles will be important all season, as will varying the schemes to create inside and outside running lanes for the backs. Not only will it spur the running game to more success, but it will make the passing game far easier. In the three losses, Ole Miss turned into an offense relying solely on Wallace to deliver a victory with his arm. Something he can do — just look at the Arkansas game last year. But it is extremely difficult for Ole Miss to win football games without an effective rushing attack. Ole Miss is 1-7 under Hugh Freeze when the team averages less than 4 yards per carry. That lone win was against Arkansas last season. If Ole Miss has found a longterm solution for running the ball inside, then it will not only create more running lanes outside but also make Wallace’s job as quarterback much easier.

Ole Miss Rebels reflect, move on from upset win Saturday

Tight end positioning key to fixing running game

When Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze entered the team meeting room of the Manning Center Monday afternoon for his weekly press conference, he, as always, had a smile on his face. However, this time it wasn’t a smile of a guy happy to be moving forward after a tough defeat. Instead, it was the smile of a guy who is still thrilled about the biggest win in his young coaching career by knocking off No. 6 LSU, 2724. “Extremely proud of kids and our staff,” Freeze said. “After watching the film, I think it’s probably one of the most complete games that we’ve played since we’ve been here.” Now, the Rebels (4-3, 2-3

Southeastern Conference) move forward to the next team on the schedule: Idaho. The Vandals (1-6) will give Ole Miss a little breathing room after the Rebels are out of the gauntlet stretch of their schedule, but Freeze is looking for his team to remained focused as it moves ahead to Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. kickoff. “We’ve got to put it away and move forward,” Freeze said. “That gauntlet that we’ve gone through, it’s taken a toll on us physically and mentally. We certainly need to continue moving in the right direction in all areas. “We’ve got a team coming in that will surely feel they have nothing to lose coming into an SEC home and have a chance to make some noise just like many teams did last weekend. We don’t want to be on the

other end of that, so we have to regain our kids’ focus and elevate our concentration to do the little things right.” Engram out for the year The injury bug continues to bite the Rebels. Ole Miss announced Sunday that freshman tight end Evan Engram will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery Monday to repair a high ankle sprain he suffered against LSU this past Saturday. “That’s a difficult loss,” Freeze said. “It’s even worse because you know what these kids put in preparing and working. He’s such a great kid and will be a tremendous leader for this program in the years to come.” Engram, who is the third Ole Miss starter to have a seaSee REBELS, PAGE 7

Jaylen Walton runs for a first down during Saturday’s game against LSU.


The key struggle for Ole Miss during its three-game losing streak was the lack of a running game. The Rebels averaged just 101 rushing yards, 3.1 yards per carry and had no rushing touchdowns in their losses to Alabama, Auburn and Texas A&M, compared to 250 rushing yards, 5.7 yards per carry and 10 rushing touchdowns in their three wins to open the season. The zone read struggled in those three losses. Defenses were taking away the outside


running game of senior running back Jeff Scott and forcing Ole Miss to run between the tackles. With its personnel of small running backs, Ole Miss struggled to make teams pay by running up the middle. But against LSU, Ole Miss made an adjustment. It changed the positioning of its tight end. Instead of having freshman tight end Evan Engram line up next to the tackle or out wide like a receiver, he lined up behind the tackle, and Ole Miss used him as a lead blocker. “The way people have been playing us, we felt like if they continue to do certain things to take away some of the things we’re accustomed to doing, they may have issues and problems with that (scheme),” head coach Hugh Freeze said. “That was certainly part of the plan, and it ended up being a solid plan for us.” It wasn’t a completely new scheme. Ole Miss has used junior tight end Nick Parker in that role, but only in a package that included senior Barry Brunetti. With the normal Ole Miss offense that has junior Bo Wallace at quarterback, three wide receivers, one running back and a tight end, there was no lead blocker until the LSU game. Engram would come across the offensive line and seal off a defensive end or a linebacker to See TIGHT, PAGE 7
