Spring Check-In: Ole Miss

Bland is most likely the best word to use for spring practice and the annual spring game. The Rebels are breaking in an offensive and defensive coordinator and overhauling both systems in the process. Former OC Phil Longo had an offensive philosophy that reminded me of Al Pacino’s speech to Jamie Foxx in “Any Given Sunday” when he talked about running toward the Buick in street football. “Running toward open space” and only having “less than 30 offensive plays” is not going to cut it against SEC defenses in multiple seasons. Y’all have probably seen this in previous changes on your coaching staff - buy in either happens quickly and everything clicks right away when the season starts, or there’s a wait and see attitude from players until a big win occurs and that may never happen leading to more firings.
