Freeze Says UM’s O-Line Is Making Progress; Mackey Needs To “Get His Act Together”

Yesterday was the first day of two-a-days at Ole Miss and new coach Hugh Freeze had good things to say about his offensive line:


“I know (coach) Matt (Luke) is working extremely hard with them and they are studying a lot of film to find their mistakes and coming out and trying to work on those in individuals and carry that over into the team settings.  There is no doubt they got better, you see the results of us getting more positive yards running the football.”


One of those players doing the running yesterday was converted quarterback Randall Mackey.  Freeze told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that Mackey could be a valuable asset at running back and at receiver.  “I’ve said from Day One with Randall that if he gets his act together off the field, he fits into what we do, and he can be a very valuable part,” Freeze said.  “Hopefully that will continue the way it’s going right now.”
