Coach: Ed Orgeron (4th year at Mississippi)
Team Name: Rebels
2006 Overall Record: 4-8
Returning Starters: 15

In 2006, the Ole Miss Rebels (4- 8 overall, 1- 7 SEC) tied for fourth place in the SEC West. The last time the Rebels were in a post-season classic was the 2003 Cotton Bowl where they beat #21 Oklahoma State 31- 28. The Rebels were then rated 16th. The good news is that Ole Miss is on the rise again and they have a legitimate shot at a post-season appearance.

Nine starters return on offense, including four members of a very physical frontline, which is led by junior Michael Oher. Senior RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (234 CAR, 1,000 YDs, 7 TDs) is a rugged runner capable of piling up yardage. The wide outs are juniors and sophomores with talent but not a whole lot of big play potential. Who will be QB? Either the dependable senior Seth Adams (54.8% COMP) or former Tennessee starter senior Brent Schaeffer (47.1% COMP, 1,442 YDs, 9 TDs, 10 INTs) will get the nod. Schaeffer has a strong throwing arm but Adams looked better in spring practice.

Ole' Miss only scored an average of 15.7 PPG, ranking them 108th in the nation, while they allowed opponents 22.9 PPG, placing them 61st in that category. The Rebels had a good defense led by Butkus Award winner Patrick Ellis, who will be replaced by LB Jonathan Cornell. All of the linebackers are new to starting. Both DE's on the line are returning starters and with good health this unit will hold its own. The secondary returns big playmaker junior Jamarca Sanford at strong safety.

In the final analysis, the Rebels should win more games than they did last season. How many more is the question? Memphis, Louisiana State and Northwestern State look like "W's." Mississippi State and Vanderbilt could be wins also. Then they'll need an upset. Watch the ‘Bama game for a possible but doubtful win.
