Fan Favorite, Star Receiver 80 Percent Back from Injury

By Austin Miller, OleMissSports.com

OXFORD, Miss. — Everyone remembers the play.

Dragging a defender, wide receiver Laquon Treadwell was hit from behind as he fought his way toward the goal line near the end of the Auburn game last year. He felt it when the injury happened, but he made himself not believe until he tried to stand up.

His outstanding sophomore season came to an abrupt end, and he later underwent surgery to repair a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle.

Amid the devastation, for a player, a team and a community, he had one thought above all else.… Read more...

What a special year it was to be an Ole Miss Rebel in 2014.

From an epic Saturday in October, to a trip to Omaha, to ground-breaking on the new basketball arena, to celebrating the life of Chucky Mullins on the twenty-fifth anniversary and to crushing the school down south, this past year provided Ole Miss fans with momentous moments to rejoice both what was and what’s to come for Ole Miss Athletics.

A Day to Remember – October 4, 2014
From the moment the 2014 football schedule was released, Rebel fans everywhere began to think, “If we can just beat Boise State in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, then we have a real chance to be undefeated going into the Alabama game.” Well, that’s precisely what unfolded ahead of the Crimson Tide’s first trip to Oxford since 2011.… Read more...

Rebels’ First Pac-12 Opponent in Football

OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss and Cal will play a home-and-home football series in 2017 and 2019, the schools and ESPN announced Thursday.

The Rebels, who have never played a Pac-12 school in football, will make the roughly 2,150-mile trip to Berkeley, California, on Sept. 16, 2017. It will be the westernmost game in Ole Miss history, surpassing the 2011 trip to Fresno, which was the program’s only other visit to the Golden State.

The Bears will make a return visit to Oxford on Sept. 21, 2019.

Future Ole Miss schedules also include exciting matchups against other “Power Five” schools such as Florida State (2016), Georgia Tech (2022, 2023) and Wake Forest (2024, 2025).… Read more...

Shack Attack: D.T. Shackelford

As published in the Nov/Dec 2014 Rebel Rags Magazine™

It would be easy to paint a mental picture of a slow walk, gentle descent from the top of the whirlpool bath, settling carefully to the bottom and soaking in the warmth and reviving tired muscles.

In truth, there’s some of that with D.T. Shackelford.

As pictures are worth a thousand words, however, the image Shackelford hopes to leave for Ole Miss fans – after receiving a sixth season of eligibility from the NCAA – is one of relentless pursuit and big strikes from the middle linebacker position he was recruited to play.… Read more...

HEART & SOUL: Anthony Boone

There aren’t many numbers retired at Ole Miss. Archie Manning’s number 18 and the late Chucky Mullins number 38 are most well known. Former baseball coach Jake Gibbs had his number 41 retired. But in Tad Smith Coliseum the number 41 also hangs in retirement. Anthony Boone didn’t have the dream career at Ole Miss as knee injuries robbed him of large chunks of playing time but the Arkansas native made the most of the hardwood time he did get. He averaged just over seven points a game and five rebounds but it was the intangible facts that don’t fit in a stat column that put his number up.… Read more...

The Mystique of Oxford and Ole Miss

As published in the May/June 2014 Iusse

Way down south lies a town, university and campus that have come together to create one of the most surreal, storybook settings across the entire collegiate landscape. 

It’s through this collective effort that Ole Miss has achieved such an endearing, enduring mystique.

To many graduates like my wife and myself that decided to stay and raise a family in Oxford, there’s something undeniable about the charming small town that just makes it very special. The late Frank E. Everett Jr. described what Ole Miss means to so many as well as words allow:
There is a valid distinction between The University and Ole Miss even though the separate threads are closely interwoven.… Read more...

At long last they made it. The Ole Miss Rebels made it to the College World Series for the fifth time in the program’s long and glorious history. But it was the first time under Mike Bianco in his 14 years as head coach in Oxford.

Ole Miss had been a regular in Omaha, Neb., the site of the College World Series, throughout the 1950s, 1960s, and into the 1970s. But that’s when things suddenly came to a grinding halt.… Read more...

Billy Ray Adams’ Adversity in Life Kept Him On God’s Road

His mother birthed him alone at home, the eleventh of twelve children in a house with no running water, indoor plumbing or electricity. He was the only one of his siblings to finish high school and the only one to go to college. At the age of six he last saw his father. That’s just how life was for Billy Ray Adams. He didn’t know any other way to live. A natural athlete, Adams excelled in any and every sport offered at Lee High School.… Read more...

Freeze Delivering on Promises, Vision Quickly Becoming Reality

As published in the Nov/Dec 2014 Issue

Having survived what seemed like Armageddon at the time, also known as the final two years of the Houston Nutt regime, Rebel Nation was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief when the right reverend was relieved of his duties in late 2011. A collective sigh it may have been, the announcement of Nutt’s successor left some a bit uneasy about the future of the program.

Rebel Nation’s ray of hope in finding the right man to lead the Rebels back to prominence: Archie Manning and Mike Glenn.… Read more...

So many games, so many wins. Ole Miss has its share of victories throughout its history, but we’ve come up with our list of the ten we feel put Ole Miss on the college football map.

Bondurant led Ole Miss to its first gridiron win in 1893, a 56-0 shellacking of Southwest Baptist University, the red and blue would claim its first bowl game win behind the brilliant mind of first-year head coach John Howard Vaught in 1948.… Read more...

Jerrell Powe was one of the top nose tackles to ever play at Ole Miss. Not only that, but Powe was also in on the beginning of the phenomenon Ole Miss fans now call the “Landshark.” Now entering his 3rd season with the NFL’s Houston Texans, Powe returns to Oxford frequently during the off-season and remains a fan favorite. With the “Fins Up” movement taking off like it has we thought it would be fun to catch up with Powe and talk Ole Miss, Landsharks and the NFL.… Read more...
