Ole Miss Recruit In Limbo After Signing With Three Schools

Limbo Haines City, Florida running back Dacorius “D.J.” Law hit the trifecta on National Signing Day.

At a televised announcement on Wednesday, he put on a University of Utah hat.  But hours earlier, Ole Miss had already received a signed letter of intent from him. For good measure,  he also signed junior college papers with East Mississippi Community College at his home on Tuesday night. He claims those papers were never faxed but the school’s Twitter account included him in its signing class.

“I don’t really know what happened, to tell you the truth,” Law said. “I trust the coaching over there (at Utah), so I left it to them, and we’ll see what happens. If something happens, then I’ll be worried.”

So what happens now?  Utah sent their paperwork along with a video of Law signing to the Pac-12 offices.  Ole Miss says their compliance department is looking into the matter.

Law is not the only one confused by the whole matter.  Here’s what his high school coach said about the end of Law’s recruitment.  ”Ole Miss would not talk to me. They would not talk to anyone from our school. We don’t know what’s going on.”

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze may not be talking to him but he did comment on Law Wednesday: ”He’s got some academic challenges. Hopefully he can overcome those.”

Ole Miss DB Hill Arrested, Suspended After Alleged Sexual Assault

police-lightsIt’s the offseason and arrests are starting to pick up.  In the case of Ole Miss defensive back Bobby Hill, the arrest is not the typical small one.  He was arrested Tuesday after a female told police she had been sexually assaulted.

WTVA-TV first reported the story.  Hugh Freeze then released a statement concerning Hill’s arrest:


“We are aware of the situation and recognize the proper authorities are responsible for the matter.  Bobby has been indefinitely suspended from all football activities while the process moves forward.  We take this very seriously and will make decisions once the course of (legal) action is complete.”


As a freshman, Hill played in 10 games for the Rebels.

Ole Miss’ Freeze Says No-Huddle Is “A Great Equalizer”

gfx - they said itOle Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has his second team of Rebels nationally ranked and standing at 3-0 overall.  They’ve won their conference opener at Vanderbilt and last week blasted Texas in Austin.

Ole Miss currently ranks fourth in the SEC in total offense (490 yards per game) and second in the league in terms of seconds-per-offensive-snap.  Freeze believes his hurry-up offense is a big reason for the Rebels’ offensive totals and their victories to date:


“I think more people are seeing that can be advantageous to you.  You’re getting more plays, which results in more first downs, which results in more yards and more touchdowns… The offensive world has changed.  Somebody told me yesterday on my radio show I think we’re averaging right at 500 yards a game and I think we’re 30th in the nation.  Five, six year ago, you’re go to be in the top five with that…

I do believe firmly that if you have the best offensive line in the country and the best backs and the best defense, I don’t know that this is the best answer for you.  But if you don’t feel like you’re in a place where you’re always going to have that, I do think it’s a great equalizer… I think it makes it harder to prepare for us, because you really have to carry a smaller (defensive) package, I think.”


For those who like fast-break style “basketball on grass,” the future looks bright.  With more teams going up-tempo scoring will likely continue to go up.  Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing for the SEC — a league that’s succeeded nationally by playing superior defense — remains an awfully big question.

Ole Miss’ Freeze Talks Nerves And Expectations

gfx - they said itLast season, Hugh Freeze surprised SEC fans and pigskin pundits by leading what was supposed to be a downtrodden Ole Miss squad to a bowl game and seven wins.  Now kicking off his second year as Rebel coach tonight, Freeze says that — for most part — he’s got fewer jitters than he had this time a year ago:


“It depends on what day it is.  Today I feel like there’s less nervousness because I know more about our kids and where we are than I did at this time last year.  And at the same time you realize expectations have been raised and you want to meet those, and that brings some anxiousness…

(The players are) very aware of what happened last year and the momentum that was carried on through recruiting and then spring ball, and the expectations that have risen.  They understand it, they get it.  I know they’re going to play with tremendous effort, we just hopefully have to make sure they’re in the right spot.”


Tonight’s game at Vanderbilt features a pair of squads that are trying to climb into the upper halves of their divisions.  Someone’s odds of accomplishing that feat will take a hit on Night #1, right out of the gate.  Welcome to the rough-and-tumble world of the SEC.
