  The Ole Miss men’s basketball team got the season started the right way with a 93-57 win over Mississippi Valley State Friday night at Tad Smith Coliseum.    Junior guard Marshall Henderson led the Rebels with 22 points, going 5-for-11 from 3-point range, including three made three-pointers in 1:22 of game time.    “That’s why...

It’s irrelevant and a ridiculous non-issue. You might then ask, “Why does anyone care? Why is anyone debating this issue?

  Over the last two games against Arkansas and Georgia, Ole Miss has found itself unable to move the football on the ground.    The rushing attack was a key factor in the Rebels’ early season offensive success, as the team topped 150 yards rushing in six of their first seven games. However, over the last two weeks, the Rebels have combined for just...

  While the Ole Miss men’s basketball squad will look different with seven newcomers, that’s not the only change that will be seen around the Tad Smith Coliseum, as the student section debuts Friday as “Club Red.”    Club Red will be the lower portion of the student section that will be free for students to sign up for.
