Ole Miss creates job post for head football coach


At one point, when the Tigers took a 38-3 lead in the third quarter, Ole Miss had been outscored 124-3 in a span of eight-plus quarters by California (20-0), Alabama (66-3) and Auburn. Now we haven't arrived yet. That's what we've got to do. Very few teams around the country can do that. "Keep the hammer down and we'll continue to send that message".

The Rebels find themselves in this position after discovering former head coach Hugh Freeze made calls to escort services using a school phone.

The Rebels return home next Saturday to host the Vanderbilt Commodores for homecoming.

It's not too early to start believing in Auburn's defense. Kam Martin, remember him?

I mean I've never actually coached anyone at literally anything before, but I typically go undefeated when I play career mode on Madden, while running a pretty sophisticated Air Raid offense, so maybe I'm the flawless man for the job. It was the first Ole Miss touchdown since the second quarter against the Cal Bears. It has been offense, and mostly quarterback.

Quarterback Jarrett Stidham was responsible for Auburn's other two first-half touchdowns, hitting Ryan Davis on a short screen pass that the Tigers' receptions leader ran 75 yards for a scoring to cap a one-play drive late in the first quarter and throwing a perfectly lofted, 19-yard pass to Darius Slayton in the right corner of the opposite end zone early in the second. Stidham had ample opportunity to throw most of the game. But he can connect enough for defenses to respect his arm strength. The run game continued to struggle, but the passing game was working.

So theoretically, Auburn's offense has a chance to become really unsafe.

Brown was much more involved in the passing game at Auburn, and so were the running backs.

Rushing offense: A - Auburn piled up 341 rushing yards, including 204 by Kerryon Johnson.

"The fact that Chip is calling the plays and we are different in a lot of ways, it's not like you would think", Malzahn said. "I just focused on taking care of the ball and winning one-on-one matchups when I got them".

Johnson agreed with Malzahn that he's still not completely recovered from that hamstring injury. "I was able to get up to a faster speed than last week, and it just felt really good to be closer to normal again".

"In the open field I was making people miss". If Kamryn Pettway ever gets healthy, the Tigers will have a great one-two punch at running back.
