The total lack of preperation on the part of our coaching staff again shone through again as bright as ever !! Our play calling was pathetic and our coverage in the secondary is non - existent !! How can a head coach of a college team allow for 0-13 on third down conversions primarily because your receivers are not going to the first down marker ??? Please help me understand that Coach. There is no excuse except you are not coaching these players. Additionally, how many times are you going to allow our corners to run with their backs to the the quarterback ?They have been beaten so many times all year solely because they do not even know the ball is in the air not to mention they are usually 5-6 steps out of position. This is coach able and can be fixed being a fundamental element of the game. It contains no trick plays or special sets. It is basic football which is what we have gotten away from at OLE Miss. IT IS CALLED BLOCKING AND TACKLING. Our corners need to watch the quarterback not run with their backs to the ball. I don't care what the Pros's this isn't working for OLE MISS. WATCH THE FILM. GO BACK TO THE BASICS. DO WHAT WORKS FOR US. The play calling was as predictable as ever ! UP the middle first and second downs then throw on third and punt. We never went to the markers on third down. ARE we just stupid ? You love throwing east and west for some reason ? why? IT is dangerous hardly ever works but you just keep coming back for more so every defensive coord. knows exactly what OLE miss is going to do. Imagine that Houston ? Why would you run the wild rebel set on the one yard line? ARE you stupid ? We have a strong big Quarterback why not go under center to decrease the chance of an exchange problem and give it to Bolden, Davis, or allow Masoli to run it ? Things just dont add up. The coachable things like dropped passes. why not bench a guy when constantly drops passes he should be catching. you have to get their attention. You are the coach Houston !! The leader ! It might have been the difference in two or three games if you had shaken them up a little. they have to catch balls right in their hands or they need to sit down and think about it . The ole miss rebels have always played with intensity no matter what kind of team we had in a given year. Our teams have always been known to hit and to play with pride on defense. We played one game this year with that sorta effort. LSU. That's coachable too . It takes effort and desire to get our players up and ready for the other team every week . what i witnessed this year was most weeks we weren't ready or prepared . It seemed they were always a step behind in coverage,couldn't handle the angles, our secondary i have already addressed was always beat. the main problem being they were on the Field the entire game. Well , enough said until we get to MS. state and allow them to come into our house and make a fool out of us tonight and last year. Their play calling was precise, creative, and kept us guessing all night long while ours was boring , predictable and way too late to matter. As usual we allowed too many turnovers costing us points getting behind and playing from behind all night. They had a spring in their step and our coaching job did not give our players a chance to win in my opinion. OUR players deserve a standing ovation for their tremendous effort for almost pulling out a win in spite of the poor coaching job. I hope you heed some of this message in the manner which it was sent . You are resting on your laurels too much i am afraid you need to get a fire lit under your ass and get busy doing the job we all know you can do. i know your boss up there and he wont tell you that as direct as I just did but I want you and OLE MISS to do well. So get busy recruiting and lets get ready for next year. !!!!!! !Rebel 5500.
