Bright future for defense if pieces fall into place

Hey, it’s never too soon to start talking about next year, is it? The Ole Miss defense has developed into a pretty solid unit against the run.

The Rebels’ defense could look a lot different — in a good sort of way — next year. Here’s how.

Also from the mother ship this morning, athletics director Ross Bjork talks about fans, primarily students, rushing the field at the conclusion of the Egg Bowl, the circumstances leading to that decision and why it was allowed to happen.

But wait, there’s more …

More on the bowl scenarios here for Mississippi State and Ole Miss. Bjork isn’t ready to rule out the Music City Bowl.

    The article states two bowls will not be getting sec teams b/c birmingham bowl has top choice and there arent enough eligable teams. Are the bowls with sec tie ins required to take a sec team if available? I.E. could the scenario happen where birmingham bowl chooses a lower tier team with more wins like MTSU or ARk.State over Ole Miss thus OM would fall to the liberty bowl or indy bowl?

    I suspect they are contractually obligated. The whole purpose of the “tie in” is to benefit eligible SEC teams. In this particular scenario, the Compass Bowl is very eager to have an SEC team.
