College Football 77 in 77: #71 Ole Miss Rebels


With the possible exception of Vanderbilt, this probably the worst team in the SEC. Which usually makes you pretty good. It’s like being fat…by supermodel standards. You’re still in very good shape.  What the Ole Miss Rebels need, in addition to a more contemporary nickname, is an overhaul on defense. They were abysmal last year, especially so against the pass.  They only return three starters on that side of the ball, and that may be a good thing.

On the flipside they have a very strong offensive line (hey, this is the school of “The Blind Side” Michael Oher after all) and a solid running game. Will it be enough to make a bowl game? Expectations are always high in a land where college football is king year round.
