Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork announced Tuesday that Brett Frank, who was previously listed as the associate head coach, will serve as the acting head coach of the Ole Miss women’s basketball program for the upcoming season. Rebecca Kates-Taylor will
continue serving as an assistant coach, and Taja Edwards has been promoted from coordinator of video services to assistant coach. Bjork said that they will go into the season without hiring a third assistant coach, but he did indicate there will be administrative additions to the staff.

Today at 5 p.m., Republican U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee will debate Democratic challenger Brad Morris in the Overby Center Auditorium. This is the only debate
between the two candidates. The panel will consist of four journalists and be moderated by Overby fellow Bill Rose. The event is free and open to the public.
Students walking through the Quad this week might notice something unusual. The University of Mississippi student organization SistahSpeak! has dyed the water in the Phi Mu fountain pink in support of individuals affected by breast cancer. About 50 people attended an event held yesterday at the fountain in the center of campus to kick off the week-long dying of the fountain. “We wanted to do this to not only support people affected by breast cancer, but
to raise awareness on campus,” vice president of SistahSpeak! Danielle Bean said. “We also wanted to do something unique to bring light on a situation that is already very important to so many people.” The event included a statement by Bean, a candlelight vigil for specific individuals in attendance affected by breast cancer and a speech from breast cancer survivor and School of Applied Sciences Assistant to the Dean Terry Blackmarr. “This is a great moment for the university,” Associated Student Body President
and Phi Mu sorority member Kimbrely Dandridge said. “This is a great time to really reflect on the people that are affected by breast cancer.” SistahSpeak! is a discussionbased, service-oriented organization for minority women that was started at Ole Miss three years ago, according to president of SistahSpeak! Crystal Gomillia-Johnson. “Turning the fountain pink is about paying honor and respect to anyone and everyone affected by breast cancer,” Gomillia-Johnson said. Bean said that the pink dye See PINK, PAGE 4

How to incentivize the O.U.T. bus: Repeal parking rules

BY LEXI THOMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me begin this column with a disclaimer: I am not the kind of writer that typically devotes an entire column to complaining about the parking situation on campus. Frankly, I always find an ample amount of parking by the baseball fields and behind the Ford Center, and choose to park there leisurely instead of fighting for spots behind the Tad Pad with a hundred other students. Sure, it is a little far from the library and some of my classes, but I don’t mind walking. I find the entire premise of this column to be slightly amusing, because up until a few weeks ago, I didn’t have a parking pass at all…I rode the bus. I want you to note how that last sentence is past tense. Why did I decide to stop us-

car on campus after 5, when open parking is permitted. Or so I thought. Earlier this month, I was completely surprised when I was ticketed in the Circle at 7:40 p.m. The Reason? Parking without a decal. I didn’t buy a parking pass at the beginning of the year. Why would I spend $85 on a commuter decal when I planned on using the bus every day? Besides, I was under the impression—the same impression that I had since freshman year—that you didn’t need a pass at all to park on campus after 5. I understand that I am in the wrong for not reading the fine print of the Parking Services policy. Nevertheless, I find the need to have decal in order to park on campus after business hours to be absolutely ridiculous. We are encouraged to use the bus during the day, and it is advertised online as a great option to “save money on gas” and “avoid parking hassles”. But with the Green Line shutting down at 6 and ticketing cars after 5, the worker at Parking Services told me
I had two options: buy a decal with a $10 late fee, or walk home every night. Now, anyone who lives off Old Taylor Road knows how dangerous the bridge over Highway 6 is for pedestrians, and I am honestly surprised that no one has been killed while trying to cross. Walking home (at night, no less!) was completely out of the question for me, so I sucked it up, pulled out my wallet, and bought a commuter decal for $95. I haven’t used the bus since. Again, I know getting a ticket was my own fault. It was my responsibility to read and understand the fine print, and I failed to do so. That being said, if Ole Miss seriously wants to incentivize students to use the O.U.T. bus during the day in order to alleviate pressure on Parking Services, I believe that the decal requirement to park on campus after 5 p.m. should be at least revised, if not completely repealed.
really accomplish? Other than scoring a few political points? Politics has always been about the best performer; however, the performance has never had as much animosity as we see today. In fact, it seems that politicians escalate their ferocious attitudes in order to gain more votes and support. This achieves nothing in actually determining who would be best fit to run the United States of America. In fact, the more uncouth a candidate acts, the more likely I am not to support them or vote for them. What’s to keep that candidate from being just as rude once they reach the White House? I certainly don’t
want the commander-inchief acting so awfully in negotiations with foreign countries and in meetings with high-ranking officials. Again, political debates need to see a reengineering in structure and design. Debates should be focused more on candidates introducing their own platforms and how they are better than the opposition’s plans. I’ve heard lots of ideas in these debates, but I haven’t heard how the candidates want to accomplish the ideas. Obviously, Congress plays a large role in determining how policies and outcomes occur, but it would be nice to hear how presidential

ing public transportation and drive to campus, you might ask? Well, it wasn’t because the O.U.T. bus never runs on schedule (which is true), or because the Green Line so crowded at peak hours that the bus will sometimes pass your stop completely (which is also true, and is particularly frustrating when you have been waiting at the stop for over 20 minutes). Even with the inefficiencies in the system, I found the bus to be a convenient alternative to driving. It was free, and I could walk out of the door of my condo at Turnberry, catch the bus, and make it to the Student Union in about 20 minutes. The bus itself was not the problem in the end. As much as I hate to admit it, the reason why I abandoned the O.U.T. system was because of a Parking Services policy. I am on campus until 10 p.m. at least four days a week, whether it is to work at the Croft Institute, go to my night class, attend speaker series, or to study. Since the O.U.T. bus stops running at 6, I would always run home and bring the

The second and third debates saw a very different environment where the candidates interrupted one another repeatedly, fought for time, finger-pointed (literally) and again, had rude moments with the moderator. The vice presidential debate also had many of these same characteristics. While I enjoyed watching Joe Biden laugh at Paul Ryan’s responses, it was still rude and arrogant of Biden.

Through the looking glass
BY ANDREW DICKSON firstname.lastname@example.org
I was unaware that Greenville, Miss., is the “Hot Tamale Capital of the World,” but all of Camp Looking Glass found this out last Saturday afternoon when we attended the town’s Hot Tamale Festival. At Camp Looking Glass, each counselor is paired with a camper at functions. Mine is Antoine, a familiar face for a lot of people in this part of the Delta. The “First Annual” Hot Tamale Festival was a meet and greet for him; he rendezvoused with cousins, friends, church members and so on all day. After greeting the host of people Antoine recognized the moment we arrived, we began walking around the grounds with a few other campers and counselors. During our walk, Antoine and a counselor named Dee signed up for the hot tamale eating contest. We
decided to walk towards the stage, weaving through lines of people who waited for tamales as we went down the street. When we found the stage a few campers began dancing to the music. Most campers are quite smashing dancers, unaware that this is a time to be self-conscious for most of us. Antoine is – much like his counselor – not much of a dancer, so we made our way over to the Camp Looking Glass booth. Counselors Jen and Tasha were speaking with others when we arrived. “Camp Looking Glass is committed to emphasizing abilities,” I overheard Jen tell the crowd as Antoine and I overtook the booth for our allotted hour and began selling arts and crafts made at our last function to help fund camp. The campers and counselors who had tired of walking the festival began to pull up seats next to the booth. Everett showed up with his counselor, and after the two sat down, I apologized for missing the celebration of his 21st birthday this fall. When Everett meets a new person he asks for their name and date of birth

and commits both to some kind of internal address book that is second to none that I know of. Ask him how old someone will be on this date or that date in the future and he’ll calculate it in no time. Later, Dee arrived with his camper to inform Antoine that it was two o’ clock and time to head to the stage for the hot tamale eating contest. The two competed with four others and Dee proved victorious after eating 25 tamales in five minutes. Camp members gathered around the stage as the event went on and fervently cheered for both Antoine and Dee as if this competition was all that mattered in the world for those five short minutes – words cannot describe the experience of losing the self for a small time. As the festival wound down and parents began to pick up their campers, one mother struck up a conversation with us about her daughter’s treatment in the public school system before she decided to move her to a private school. The public school insisted she be in a special needs class; however, she has scored a 24 on the ACT –

candidates want to see their goals come to fruition. Politics are no longer about the issues but about who can make the most noise and gain the most publicity. We no longer focus on the issues because we are distracted by the theatrics. Furthermore, Congress experiences gridlock because of this animosity and performance between the parties. Then, this animosity extends to average citizens with opposing views. Politicos need to put aside their attitudes and work for compromise. They need to make their views and opinions known in a passionate, yet wellmannered way. I urge everyone to look at the issues and research the facts. Don’t be distracted by the theatrics when voting this year.

three points higher than the national average – and her mom wanted her to be challenged. One might wonder why I waited until this late in the column to reveal that all of our campers have “disabilities.” I wanted to focus on what the campers are able to do instead, which is a lot. From the outside we see all that is different; through the looking glass we see all that makes us the same. Our campers at Camp Looking Glass go about making friends, being artistic, competing in eating contests and listening and dancing to music like most human beings. Some of our campers are capable of outperforming the average student in the classroom and others grow into being quite autonomous, but unless the world around those with disabilities allows them more opportunities, their abilities will remain unknown.

In addition to the 50 year of integration celebration, The University of Mississippi welcomes to its campus the first black United Methodist bishop in the state of Mississippi. Bishop James Swanson will be a guest speaker of the Wesley Foundation in the ParisYates Chapel tonight at 7 p.m. The Wesley Foundation has brought in Swanson as a part of the celebration of 50 years of integration at Ole Miss. Rev. Eddie Willis, director of the Wesley Foundation, said the timing is â€œperfectâ€? for the bishop to make an appearance. â€œHaving Swanson speak this month during the celebration is amazing, â€? Willis said. â€œMississippi not only has its first United Methodist African-American bishop, but this campus also has its first African-American Homecoming queen.â€? Willis has worked with the
Wesley Foundation for three years and has seen an improvement in the diversity of campus. â€œEven though we have a way to go, this campus has come so far,â€? he said. Willis also said Swansonâ€™s visit will challenge the studentsâ€™ strength in Christ on a college campus. â€œWe are worshiping as one race,â€? Willis said. â€œWeâ€™re all one body in Christ.â€? Rocky Shack, Ole Miss graduate and Wesley Foundation associate, shared similar feelings on Swansonâ€™s visit to the campus. â€œIâ€™m excited Mississippiâ€™s Methodist bishop is coming to Ole Miss because it adds to the experience of diversity that I have found here over my college career.â€? Shack said â€œIt will be awesome to experience another step towards racial reconciliation on this campus.Â Wesley pushes this mindset and it makes me proud to be a part of this campus organization.â€? 26535

Mississippi schools at risk of becoming chartered Thirty-five Mississippi schools in more than 25 counties are in consideration to be taken over by parents because of their under-performing statuses. BY JEREMY K. COLEMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Parent-led conversion of low-performing schools has been on the rise across the nation, and Mississippi schools are being taken into consideration. The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) decides if a school should be converted into a charter school by looking at the school’s academic rating and performance. “Charter schools are independent public schools allowed freedom to be more innovative, while being held accountable for improved student achievement,” as stated by the National Alliance for Public Charter
Schools. The Conversion Charter School Act of 2010 from the Mississippi Legislature stated that as many as 12 charters may be given; however, three per congressional district is the maximum. A petition has to be approved by over 50 percent of parents and guardians of the students who attend an under-performing school to the State Board of Education in order to convert the school into a charter school. “The Board would have the option of rejecting or accepting the petition,” Pete Smith, bureau director at the Office of Communications and Legislative Services, said. The Mississippi Parents’ Campaign supports charter

In addition, our players expressed great support for Brett, and we are confident he has the strength and love for our student-athletes necessary to lead them athletically, academically and socially. I want to thank the entire Ole Miss family for the support expressed for our team and program.” The announcement came just a few days after Bjork terminated Adrian Wiggins’ contract in the midst of an ongoing joint investigation between Ole Miss and the NCAA over “impermissible recruiting contacts

and academic misconduct” that also led to the immediate termination of assistant coaches Kenya and Michael Landers. Bjork said there were numerous conversations that explored several options over the past few days. “We have great history here at Ole Miss, so we looked at all of our options that are available in the industry and
school legislation in order to help students who attend low-performing schools. Nancy Loome, executive director of the Parents’ Campaign, gave her insight on the matter of charter conversion. “In order to be eligible for conversion, the school would have to have fallen into one of the bottom three accountability ratings, low performing, at risk of failing or failing for three consecutive years,” Loome stated. For the first time, 35 schools in the state of Mississippi are at risk of becoming chartered. Among the counties where schools are at risk of becoming chartered are Claiborne, Clarksdale, Holmes, Hinds, Meridian and Yazoo. There are other factors to
be considered regarding a charter. “A school can be considered a New Start School under section 37-167-1 of the Mississippi Code,” Smith said. Section 37-167-1 of the Mississippi code states “the term ‘New Start School’ means the successor school to a public school in the State of Mississippi, which, during each of three (3) consecutive school years, is considered failing, as determined by the State Department of Education.” “However, there are different criteria that a school would have to meet to be placed as a New Start School,” Smith said. The parents involved would have to construct a
feasible plan as to how the school would advance and develop under their guidance according to Loome. “We hope that administrators would look closely at the school by using diagnostic informative assessments to determine where the children are, where the weaknesses are and where the strengths are,” Loome said. Loome said the core principle of the Parents’ Campaign is that all Mississippi children should be in great public schools. “We hope that parents and administrators and teachers will all work together to make sure that children in every area of the state have great public schools,” she said.
legends that are connected to Ole Miss as well as assessed the state of our team,” Bjork said in an interview. “We felt this was best course of action for the program, for the university and for our team and getting through this season and supporting them at the highest level.” Bjork also said that having someone who was familiar with the team was an important factor in the decision process, so the team would be as comfortable as possible with the season just a couple of weeks away. “The timing was the most difficult part of this,” Bjork said. “So understanding the system that they’ve been working out in and practicing in for the last five months, it was important that there were some continuity, some normalcy, and this was a way to continue that.” Now, the focus shifts to moving forward with the basketball season and getting the program back on its feet. Frank, who is in his 17th season in the college
coaching ranks, has been successful everywhere he’s been, earning five NCAA Tournament appearances and eight total postseason appearances at the Division I level. “I care deeply for these student-athletes, and I will do everything in my power to help them move forward and compete at a high level both on and off the court,” Frank said in a statement. “I am grateful to Ross for the support he has shown our team and the confidence he has expressed in me. These are challenging circumstances, and I look forward to seeing these talented young women continue to mature and remain focused on this season.” The joint investigation surrounding the program is ongoing and more information could come out in the days or months to come, but Bjork said Frank and the two assistant coaches have not been included in any wrongdoings. “We are confident in the
investigation around the program as it relates to those three individuals,” Bjork said. Frank came to Ole Miss from Fresno State, where he spent nine years in the women’s basketball program, including the last two seasons as the associate head coach. During his time with the Lady Bulldogs, Frank helped Fresno State set a school record for wins (28) in the 2011-12 campaign, while also helping the Bulldogs advance to their fifth-consecutive NCAA Tournament. Before his tenure at Fresno, Frank served as an assistant coach at Southeastern Oklahoma State from 1994-97 and 1998-2002. Ole Miss opens its season on Nov. 9 against Southeastern Louisiana.

Halloween How-To: Do-It-Yourself Costumes Girls: Black/White Swan Boys: Lumière
BY MARY B. SELLERS email@example.com
It is that time of year again, folks: Hallow’s Eve is just around the corner to scare the pants right off you. But in all seriousness, Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. I thought once I went to college, I would have to retire my enthusiasm for Halloween, but actually, it got even better. I think the best costumes are the ones that take a few risks and inspire some good, old-fashioned, improvised creativity. And though the established costume stores like Party City do offer an easy way of obtaining costumes, the products are also expensive and cheaply made. I admire people who actually put some effort into their costumes.
This first option has the potential to be both pretty and scary. It will depend on what sort of costume you want to create.
If a guy has a playful sense of humor, and is relatively tall, this costume will be a hit at any party.
“I bought a bunch of feathers from a craft store,” junior English major Ashley Locke said. She and her roommate went as the Black Swan and the White Swan from the recent hit movie, “Black Swan,” starring Natalie Portman. The way Locke and her roommate made their costumes was the same, apart from the color. “It took a really long time because I had to layer the feathers. I had to use a lot. I did it over a period of one day,” she said. After securing the feathers, Locke then opted for a simple headband, glued a piece of felt to it, and then secured more feathers to that. “My roommate did our
“I, like a candlestick, am very tall and skinny,” freshman international studies major Chris Butts said. “Creating this costume involved turning my hands and my hair into flames, and it cost me less than $10 and a few hours of my Saturday.” Butts borrowed hairspray from a friend to perfect some gravity-defying locks of hair. Men: Any girl you know will be more than willing to lend you some hairspray for this fun idea. If you aren’t a natural redhead or blonde, purchasing some washable hair powder from Walmart or Sally’s is always an option. “At Walmart, I bought two cheap, plastic golden bowls and used a little elbow grease to knock out their bases, so I could slip my hand through the bottom,” he said. Butts then bought some golden fabric that he cut into triangles, gluing them to the
makeup and drew all over our faces with eyeliner,” she said. They drew their inspiration from the movie’s makeup, obviously. It is best to have a blown-up image or really concrete idea of how the makeup looks in order to get it right.

SEC Football Power Poll: Week 8 In this week’s installment, The Daily Mississippian’s sports editor David Collier will rank the 14 Southeastern Conference teams. Opponents, game times and television networks are also included for each team.
By David Collier | email@example.com 1. Alabama
(7-0, 4-0 SEC, 1st last week)
(7-0, 6-0 SEC, 2nd last week)
The Crimson Tide continue to show their dominance in the league, and they have another opportunity this weekend to prove their the elite team in the SEC against Mississippi State. This week: Mississippi State (70, 3-0 SEC), 7:30 p.m., ESPN
The Gators dominated South Carolina this weekend, and if they can get past a Georgia team that has looked unimpressive, Florida could see themselves in Atlanta come December. This week: vs. Georgia (6-1, 4-1 SEC) (Jacksonville, Fla.), 2:30 p.m., CBS
6. Mississippi State
7. Texas A&M
(7-1, 3-1 SEC, 3rd last week)
The Bulldogs struggled in their win over Kentucky, but they definitely have the talent to pull the upset in the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” this weekend. This week: vs. Florida (7-0, 6-0 SEC) (Jacksonville, Fla.), 2:30 p.m., CBS
8. Ole Miss
The Razorbacks are also coming off an open week and have won their last two contests. Despite a lackluster start, John L. Smith has Arkansas playing with confidence. This week: Ole Miss (4-3, 1-3 SEC) (Little Rock, Ark.), 11:21 a.m., SEC Network
The Commodores picked up their second consecutive SEC win against Auburn last weekend, and although they didn’t start the season they had hoped, getting bowl eligible is within reach. This week: Massachusetts (0-7), 6 p.m., FSN
(5-2, 2-2 SEC, 6th last week)
Dan Mullen has the Bulldogs off to a hot start, but they will get a huge test this weekend on the road at Alabama. The Bulldogs’ fan base is excited and think this could be a special year. This week: at Alabama (7-0, 4-0 SEC), 7:30 p.m., ESPN
For the first time all season, quarterback Johnny Manziel was contained as the LSU defense was caused disruption, resulting in the Aggies’ second conference loss of the season. This week: at Auburn (1-5, 0-4 SEC), 6 p.m., ESPNU
Coming off a bye week, the Rebels look to carry momentum from their conference win over Auburn as they head to Little Rock to face the Arkansas Razorbacks. This week: at Arkansas (3-4, 2-2 SEC) (Little Rock, Ark.), 11:21 a.m., SEC Network
(3-4, 0-4 SEC, 9th last week)
The Volunteers suffered another conference loss, but no one can blame losing to Alabama. However, Derek Dooley better get a impressive win soon, or it could be the end for him. This week: at South Carolina (62, 4-2 SEC), 11:00 a.m., ESPN
The Tigers are looking to get their first conference win in the SEC after getting a rough welcoming to their new conference. This weekend presents the best opportunity to get things going. This week: Kentucky (1-7, 0-5 SEC), 11:00 a.m., ESPNU
211 s. lamar, OxfOrd
(6-1, 4-1 SEC, 5th last week)
The Gamecocks suffered their second loss in a row, and what once looked like a team destined for the SEC Championship Game, now looks like a team trying to find its way. This week: Tennessee (3-4, 0-4 SEC), 11:00 a.m., ESPN
(4-3, 1-3 SEC, 8th last week)
(3-4, 0-4 SEC, 12th last week)
The Tigers rebounded from a rough start to get a big win on the road at Texas A&M last weekend, and although they’ve looked very beatable, they are still in control of their own destiny. This week: OPEN
(7-0, 3-0 SEC, 7th last week)
4. South Carolina
(6-2, 4-2 SEC, 4th last week)
(1-5, 0-4 SEC, 13th last week)
Things can’t get much worse for Auburn. A loss to Vanderbilt last weekend puts them at 0-4 in the SEC, and with their offensive woes, an upset this weekend looks unlikely. This week: Texas A&M (5-2, 2-2 SEC), 6 p.m., ESPNU
(3-4, 2-2 SEC, 10th last week) (3-4, 2-3 SEC, 11th last week)
(1-6, 0-4 SEC, 14th last week)

The Wildcats played one of, if not their best games of the season in a loss to Georgia this past Saturday. Things certainly are good in Lexington, but basketball season is one week closer. This week: at Missouri (3-4, 0-4 SEC), 11:00 a.m., ESPNU

Soccer prepares for regular season finale, Magnolia Cup The Ole Miss women’s soccer team wraps up the regular season tonight with an in-state showdown against Mississippi State, looking to gain momentum heading into the SEC Tournament and improve its chances of receiving a bid to the NCAA Tournament. BY JAKE THOMPSON firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ole Miss women’s soccer team (12-7, 5-7 SEC) will wrap up its 2012 regular season against Mississippi State (8-10-1, 1-10-1 SEC) tonight in Starkville. The two teams will be competing for the Magnolia Cup, which Ole Miss won last season with a 2-0 win against the Lady Bulldogs in Oxford. The Lady Rebels lead the overall series 10-5-3 and has won four of the last five meetings between the two teams. “It’s State week,” head coach Matt Mott said in his weekly press conference Monday. “It is the Magnolia Cup. I told the team yesterday that any time you get a chance to play for a trophy, it’s special and you want to win that.” Ole Miss’ focus will not waiver against their in-state rivals, even after they clinched a Southeastern Conference Tournament berth this past weekend. Mott and his squad are still looking at the big picture in preparing for tonight’s match. “I’d say sitting squarely on the bubble is probably pretty fair,” he said. “We certainly need to get a result against State and do some damage in the SEC tournament to give us a very good chance. With our RPI, we’re sitting right there in the bubble zone.” After Mississippi State went 7-0 in its nonconference schedule, it tied South Carolina in its conference opener and then lost 10 of its next 11 games. The Lady Bulldogs’ lone conference victory came against Alabama with a 3-2 win.

“State’s got some talented players, some dangerous frontrunners,” Mott said. “They’ve scored a number of goals. ( Junior forward) Elizabeth Sullivan for them is a very, very good forward. They’ll be ready. It will be their senior night. We have to be prepared.” Sullivan leads the team with 10 goals and has four assists to go along with them. Mississippi State has netted 26 goals, but has allowed 34 goals this season. Ole Miss, which has the top two scorers in the SEC in junior midfielder/forward

Game time for tonight’s Magnolia Cup is set for 7 p.m. Ole Miss will open play on Monday in the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Orange Beach, Ala., in the eight-nine game against an opponent yet to be determined, with quarterfinal play set for Wednesday.

After snapping a four-game losing streak with an upset win over Missouri and a straight set win against South Carolina this past weekend, the Ole Miss volleyball team (10-10, 4-7 Southeastern Conference) will host one match this weekend against the Auburn Tigers (13-8, 4-7) on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The two teams are tied for fourth place in the Western Division, three games behind division leaders Texas A&M and Arkansas. “The best part about this week is we only have one match,” head coach Joe Getzin said at his weekly press conference Monday. “We get to have a little bit of time off and work on some things you normally don’t get to because you have a little extra time.” The Lady Rebels look to carry momentum from this past weekend into its final nine matches of the season, as they look to work their way back into the NCAA Tournament picture. “We have nine matches left,” he said. Right now what we’re talking about as a team is we have to be above .500 to be eligible for the NCAA Tournament. If we were to take care of business and get to 9-11 (in the SEC). We’re going to have to beat some top 30 teams. If we do that we can put ourselves back on the bubble that way.” Auburn enters Sunday’s contest on a four-game losing streak, most recently los-

We’ll prepare a lot for the ball coming back to us and not getting frustrated when someone does some good things against us.” Freshman middle blocker Nakeyta Clair made a name for herself this weekend, totaling 27 kills and 15 blocks between the Lady Rebels’ two matches to earn SEC Freshman of the Week honors by the league office. “She put up some astounding numbers for us,” he said. “We see that every day in practice, she just hadn’t been able to reproduce that in game situations.

Ole Miss enters the game ranked fourth in the SEC in total offense (440.7 ypg) and will be led by sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace, who is averaging just under 200 pass yards per game, and junior running back Jeff Scott, who is averaging just under 100 yards on the ground per game. The Rebels look to take advantage of the favorable matchup on paper and find ways to exploit the Arkansas defense. “We always try to find things,” Werner said. “They are sound and well coached, so it’s not like we say, ‘Hey, we know we are going to be able to do this.’ As the game flows, you hopefully run a few plays and see this guy is cheating this way, so we come back with something else, but it is a constant chess match during the game.” Elston returns, Mathews settles in at safety Freshman safety Trae Elston returned to practice Wednesday after nursing a tender knee and sitting out of

practice Tuesday afternoon. Elston said he suffered the injury during against Texas A&M. “It happened during the Texas A&M game,” Elston said. “I got cut by a lineman, but I’ll be alright now.” Elston has been doing constant rehab to get healthy for this weekend’s game. “I’m feeling real good,” Elston said. “I’ve been going to rehab a lot and it has helped me. I think the bye week was very helpful. We just have to get prepared for

Arkansas now.” Freeze announced in a press conference Monday that junior Brishen Mathews would be moving to safety after starting the season at huskie. On the year, Mathews has recorded nine tackles, including one for a loss. Mathews has played in all seven games for Ole Miss, but has seen limited action behind junior Dehendret Collins and freshman Mike Hilton. “Whenever you’re not on the field, as a player, it is
always hurtful,” Mathews said. “But everybody’s time comes. Right now, the biggest thing is whenever you do get an opportunity you have to capitalize. Even if it is just blocking one guy, even if it is just making sure the punter punts the ball, it is the little things in this game that make the biggest difference.” Mathews, a native of Monticello, Ark., said he is looking forward to the clash with his home state’s team. “It’s going to be special,” Mathews said. “Last time I played there I won a state championship and got MVP. If I could live up to that, that would be great, but if not, I get to go back home and say we beat the Hogs.” Mathews knows this game will be a tough one for him and his teammates. “It’s tough,” Mathews said. “It’s the SEC. We’re going to play the best every week. Week in, week out. It’s part of the game. If we practice well this week, which I think we have, it shouldn’t be an issue.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_ sports and @SigNewton_2 on Twitter.

never late; he always shows up on time. On the field, he leads the offense to points, and before every game, he says if you guys stop them, then we are going to win.” Wallace has also made it a point to talk to his teammates on offense to make sure that in an offense that is primarily based on reads, they are aware he is still looking their way. “I tell them all the time, be ready right here, if we go back to that I might be able to come to you right here,” Wallace said. “I’m always going around telling them that this could be you on this drive.” Wallace’s success this year has earned him the starting job, and he continues to gain the confidence of Freeze and his staff. “He’s a quiet guy when it comes to his leading abilities, but I think he shows by his play that he is into it,” offensive coordinator Dan Werner said. “The players know that he understands the offense and is running the show and I think they are buying into what he is doing.” For continuing coverage of Ole Miss football, follow @thedm_sports and @SigNewton_2 on Twitter.

Wallace Becoming a Leader Rebels look to exploit In his first season at Ole Miss, sophomore quarterback Bo Wallace has established himself as a leader both on the offensive side of the ball and on the team as a whole. Wallace is the team’s leading passer with 1,371 yards and nine touchdowns.

BY MATT SIGLER email@example.com
A quarterback is looked at to command the offense and establish himself as a leader both in the huddle and in the locker room. Sophomore Bo Wallace has done just that in his first season at Ole Miss. The Pulaski, Tenn., native has been welcomed with open arms to the football team and has taken over as the Rebel’s leader under center.

“I think he has done a nice job of gaining their respect,” head coach Hugh Freeze said. “There is no doubt that the kids have confidence in him, and they know he is a competitor and he is going to compete on every snap to make a play. Certainly, the last couple of weeks taking care of the ball and being productive offensively and moving us, particularly at critical times, I think that only adds to his leadership as others see him. “I think he has done a nice

job of it, but obviously he has to continue doing that and continue to take care of the ball like he has.” On the year, Wallace has thrown for 1,371 yards and nine touchdowns and has also added 225 yards on the ground with five touchdowns. Not only has he led the Rebels offensively all year, but he has also been able to gain respect from his teammates and keep it as the season has progressed, a point he stressed as soon as he joined the team. “I think I’ve done a good job of it,” Wallace said. “I think they kind of follow me and listen to me. I still have to be more vocal than I am. I think I’m really good at being vocal during the game, but also when we are out here lifting weights, or running, or things like that.” Wallace’s determination to become a leader has also caught the eyes of some of the older players on the team such as junior corner Charles Sawyer. “He’s not a talkative leader, but he does what he needs to do,” Sawyer said. “If it’s workout, he goes to workout.

Ole Miss enters Saturday’s showdown against Arkansas with the potential of having one of their biggest offensive games of the season. The Rebels (4-3, 1-2 SEC) will take on a Razorback defense that is ranked 13th in the SEC in total defense, 12th in scoring defense, last in pass defense and fifth in rush defense. The Razorbacks (3-4, 2-2 SEC) will also be without senior linebackers Alonzo Highsmith and Tenarius Wright, who are both out for the year due to injury. Highsmith was the team’s leading tackler with 54 total tackles, and Wright turned in 28 tackles before suffering his injury. “They’ve got a lot of depth

it looks like to me, so I don’t know how it will affect them,” offensive coordinator Dan Werner said. “Hopefully adversely. Highsmith was a really good player; he could really run around. I’m sure they have someone who can step in and do a good job for them.” Despite the two key losses for the Razorbacks, the Rebels anticipate still seeing a defense that has improved the past few weeks. “Steady improvement,” head coach Hugh Freeze said of the Arkansas defense. “Any time you lose leaders, there is some transition that happens, but they seem to have really rallied around each other in that time and no question they have improved the last few weeks.” See REBELS, PAGE 11
