Rebel Roundup - 6/22/10

Goforth declines Indians' offer to play in Cape |
David Goforth has turned down his offer to play in the Cape Cod League and plans to return to Oxford for his junior season. As scary as this sounds, this is a good thing because (eek), he's our most experienced weekend starter on the roster now.

Ole Miss Has a Roster Only Tennessee Could Love | Team Speed Kills
Ole Miss is in a tie with Tennessee this season for having the fewest returning starters. And nowhere will this effect be felt more than on the Rebel offense.

The top rusher from 2009 is gone, the top two receivers aren't on the team and the quarterback -- the, um, somewhat erratic Snead -- is gone. In all, the Rebels lose: 58.8 percent of their rushing yardage and 54.5 percent of rushing TDs; 62.8 percent of their receiving yardage and 68.2 percent of their receiving TDs; and 92.5 percent of their passing yardage and 90.9 percent of their passing scores. (Of course, they also lose 95.2 percent of their interceptions, so ... ) And focusing only on the skill positions would also miss the loss of three fifths of the offensive line.

We also lose Patrick Trahan and Kendrick Lewis, along with a few others, on defense, but we're still very deep up front. Expect a lot of 21-13 type games this fall, Rebel fans.
