5 Reasons Why Ole Miss Will Go Bowling This Year

The Ole Miss Rebels football team hit the reset button this spring with the hiring of former Arkansas State head coach Hugh Freeze as their new head coach.  Freeze did an impressive job with the Red Wolves and hopes to bring that same winning attitude to the Rebels this fall.

With the opening of the college football season every team in the SEC feel they will be competitive and can contend for the divisional championship.  The 2009 season was the last winning season for Ole Miss, but this year could the beginning of the Rebels being more competitive with the top tier schools.

1)      Easy schedule.  The Rebels should be 3-1 before they enter conference play with homes games against Central Arkansas, UTEP, Texas and a road game at Tulane.  In three other games the Rebels will have a good chance of winning Auburn, Vandy and Miss State.

2)      Hugh Freeze will not be intimidated by other coaches in the SEC. Coach Freeze will not allow his this to have a defeatist attitude and defends them at every corner.  During the SEC media days this year South Carolina’s head coach Steve Spurrier called the Rebels doormats.  Freeze responded sharply to that statement and said, “We will circle that game in 2014.”

3)      The Rebels defense.  The Rebels strength this season will be on the defensive side of the line. The Rebels return a strong core of defensive backs and linebackers.  Linebacker Mike Marry and defensive back Charles Sawyer will lead the unit.  Both players earned All-SEC and other preseason recognition.  Marry led the team in tackles last season with 81.  Sawyer was fourth in the SEC with four interceptions and was the team’s second leading tackler with 70.

4)      Team will be more accountable.  Freeze will hold his team more accountable and they won’t make the mental mistakes the team made last season.  Last season the Rebels made too many mental mistakes that cost them a few wins and they lost their confidence as the season progressed.

5)      More talent on offense.   Last season Randall Mackey started 6 games at quarterback. Mackey has moved back to his natural position of running back.  The quarterback position has been upgraded with Barry Brunetti and Bo Wallace competing for the starting job.  Sr. running back Jeff Scott ability will assist the Rebels offense and defense by his production.  Scott was a first team All-SEC selection.  Wide receiver Donte Moncreif will be a big target for the quarterbacks to seek out in the passing game.

Mid-South sprinter is having an impact on amatuer circuit for Shelby Youth Sports

Brooke Owens, a seventh grader at Shadow Lawn Middle School, has set a number of records in the 100, 200, and 400-meter dash since joining Shelby Youth Sports as a Kindergartner.        (Photos by John Tucker)

 

As it turns out, daughter knew best all along.

Brooke Owens always clung to lofty aspirations of becoming an avid track and field athlete. Even when she was too young to compete at the amateur level, she sensed that she would eventually relish the opportunity of demonstrating why she had gained an interest for the sport long before ever partaking in her first competitive event.

Although her father, Antonio Owens, a former prep track and field standout for Bartlett High, told her time and again that, for a four-year-old, she was too young to run, Brooke kept tugging and jerking away at his T-shirt as a figurative memo, of sorts, that someday she will ultimately prove that she can have an even greater impact than her older brother, Joshua, who was already competing in amateur meets at the time.

“I told her, ‘I know you can, just sit there,’” said Antonio Owens, recalling a conversation he and his daughter had during a meet for her brother at the Briarcrest Sportsplex about eight years ago. “She kept telling me she can do it too.”

Approximately a year later, Brooke’s golden opportunity to compete surfaced when her parents signed her up with Shelby Youth Sports, a non-profit, community based youth sports athletic association comprised of several member areas throughout the Mid-South.

Besides track and field, SYS, one of the largest providers of community-based after-school programs in the Shelby-Metro area, also offers cheerleading and football.

For Brooke, it seems she is benefiting immensely from having exemplified a dauntless desire to engage in track and field. That’s because not only has she has flourished on the track in recent years, but she has evolved into one of SYS’s up-and-coming sprinters, particularly in her age group. Earlier this year, for instance, she set an assortment of records and garnered a number of awards after placing first in the 100, 200, and 400-meter dash.

“Everytime I get a better record, it’s in either the 400 and 200,” said Brooke, a seventh grader at Shadow Lawn Middle School. “(Competing) is special to me. I chose track and field because my brother is a good runner. But I told him I could do just as better. So I ran the same events as my brother. Conditioning…it’s tough. My dad pushes me just about everyday.”

Fortunately for the speedy 12-year-old sprinter, who hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down anytime soon, it didn’t take long for her to find her niche as a young athlete. That, according to her mother, Kendra Owens, makes her devout plea to embrace the sport seven years ago much more appeasing.

“The thing that’s unique about her records is that she runs in regular shoes,” Kendra said. “They don’t get to run in spikes like the girls AAU. And Brooke’s times are right up there in regular shoes.”

Oddly, when Brooke, who frequently competes in the long jump event, first came under the radar as a sprinter, her parents were more than 4,100 miles away from Memphis, vacationing in Hawaii. Antonio, in fact, remembers all too well how he fielded a slew of phone calls from his brother, who was astonished by his niece’s presence as a newcomer to the sport.

Owens, whose says her favorite athlete is three-time Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix, is hopeful to compete in the AAU ranks next year.

 

 

“Kendra and I got calls from my brother, who said, ‘Man, you just don’t know, this girl can run really, really fast,’” said Antonio, who trains regularly with his daughter as many as six days a week. “I was thinking, she told me she could do it.”

Although Brooke, whose favorite athlete is international sprinter Allyson Felix, a three-time Olympic gold medalist for Team USA in the recent London Games, is two years away from competing in the high school ranks, her parents are seriously considering allowing her to compete in the AAU ranks as early as next year.

Of course, if such talks of being upgraded to AAU aren’t routinely discussed in the Owens household over the next few months, chances are Brooke will likely revert back to tugging and jerking away at her father’s T-shirt much like she did while watching from the bleachers at Briarcrest seven years ago. After all, such a gesture proved beneficial for her at the time.

“We plan to let her get the feel of what it’s like to represent Memphis,” Kendra said. “Memphis is really a track and field town. She’s very focused on and off the track. She’s on the principal’s list and honor roll, and I just pray she’s get a (track and field) scholarship.”

Considering how she she has gone about making her presence felt for SYS in the recent years, Brooke’s father doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has made a believer out of him, in large part because her peers and coaches have been highly complementary of her fundamentals of late.

“The sky’s the limit for her,” he said, chuckling.

As it turns out, daughter knew best all along.

5 Reasons To Be Excited About Memphis Football This Season

It is finally football season and opening day is fast approaching.  All of us have been waiting patiently for the season to begin.  Especially Memphis Tigers fans, who want nothing more than to wash the bitter taste of the 5-31 record during the past three seasons out of their mouths.  Hopes are high for this year’s squad, just like last year.  However, this looks to be a rebuilding year for the Tigers who have their third head coach in four years, a low number of scholarship players, and a severe lack of depth.  But do not fret die hard Tigers’ fans for this year will certainly be full of excitement and bring you plenty of memorable moments.  Below are five reasons to be excited about this year’s Memphis Tigers.

1. Winnable home games:
Fans should be thrilled that the Tigers have three winnable home games on the schedule this year. Now when I say winnable I do not mean competitive contest where Memphis only loses by a touchdown or two.  I mean games Memphis should be favored in and win.  This year, instead of opening against Mississippi State (like they did last year),Memphis will play FCS foe UT Martin which is almost a guaranteed victory.  MTSU is also included in the home slate. And while the Blue Raiders lead the all-time series 15-8-1, the home team is 7-1 in the last eight games which bodes well for the Tigers.  Another possible victory will be against Tulane who the Tigers have beaten the last six times the two have played, including a victory last year for their only conference win of the year.

2.  Unknown NFL quality talent:
Last year it was Dontari Poe, but do the Tigers’ have a player on this year’s team that is going to contribute at the NFL level?  The possibility makes every Memphis fan wonder who “that guy” is.  It might be Akeem Davis, who is a stellar cornerback and the teams leading returning tackler.  He also had three interceptions to lead the team last year.  Punter Tom Hornsey is another player on the Tigers’ roster with NFL caliber talent.  Hornsey was named freshman All American and has averaged at least 42 yards per kick the past two seasons.  Maybe there is a player on the roster that we do not know about yet who is going to have a break out year and emerge as the next big thing out of Memphis.

3.  Historic last year as a Conference USA member:
This year marks the end of their affiliation with Conference USA as Memphis will be joining the Big East next football season. Memphis has been in several conferences throughout their football history (Mississippi Valley Conference, SIAA, Missouri Valley Conference, and Metro Conference), and the Tigers were even independent for some years.  The move to the Big East is more than welcomed, and it is not just because of their BCS automatic bid and the money that comes along with it.  Since joining C-USA 16 seasons ago the Tigers have amassed an abysmal 44-73 conference record with no conference championships.  So a change of conference scenery might be just what the team needs to motivate them to try and go out on top and snag the university’s first C-USA Championship.

4.  New amenities in the Liberty Bowl:
The Liberty Bowl under went some renovations this off season to get ready for the Tigers’ jump to the Big East.  There are more lights in the stadium for night games, more concession stands, and a new Astroturf on the field.  But the biggest (literally) and most notable addition to the Liberty Bowl is the 98’ X 48’ Jumbotron located in the south endzone, and when you add the speakers to it the giant video board measures in at a staggering 106’ X 58’.  It is the sixth largest video board in all of college football.  Add to it the smaller LED board in the north endzone (38’ X 10’), and you have two video boards that will certainly enhance all Liberty Bowl patrons’ game experience.

5.  Beginning of a new era:
This is Justin Fuente’s first head coaching gig after being offensive coordinator at TCU for the past three years.  He has coached some impressive offenses in his time at TCU, and hopes to bring the success he had at TCU to Memphis this year.  The up pace tempo offense that Fuente has implemented will surely captivate Tigers’ fans, especially after last year’s team finished last in C-USA in total yards (117th nationally).  There is more energy and excitement surrounding this team than there has been the past three years, and that is because the Fuente era is upon us.  Do not miss out on it.

A Mid-Southerner’s Guide to Fantasy Football 2012

The time is here, media days have come and gone in college; training camp is over; and exhibition games have begun in the NFL.  That can only mean one thing, football season has arrived.  With the arrival of football season, it also brings Fantasy Football.  As I am typing this, there are hundreds of thousands of people sitting in a draft room, or going over their rankings to make sure they have the best teams they can get.

Most people have his or her own draft strategy when going into a draft, whether it be grab two running backs in their first two picks, or maybe just go with the best player available every time and then worry about setting a lineup after the draft.  Another strategy that some use is to draft a player from one’s favorite pro team or college team.  That is not always the best strategy because sometimes players get taken two or three rounds before they should be taken.

The following list consists of former Mid-South area/SEC players and current Tennessee Titans and where they should be taken in 2012 fantasy football drafts.

(Note: Rounds are based on a basic 10 team, snake draft league)

 Quarterbacks:

  1. Matthew Stafford (DET) – Stafford actually stayed healthy for all of last year and led the Lions to their first playoff appearance since Barry Sanders left.  He is a Top 5 fantasy QB, but should not be taken in the first round (Round 2)
  2. Cam Newton (CAR) – The former Heisman Trophy winner burst onto the scene last year and surpassed everyone’s expectations.  Some expect a sophomore slump from Cam, while others expect even bigger things from him.  This leads to folks reaching for him all the way into the first round, do not do that (End of Rd. 2/Top of Rd. 3)
  3. Eli Manning (NYG) – The two-time Super Bowl Champion is one of the least appreciated QBs in Fantasy Football, but puts up the numbers every year.  That is good though for some owners because he might slide past where he should be taken.  (Round 3)
  4. Peyton Manning (DEN) – Here is the big enigma for the upcoming football season.  Is he going to be the “old” Peyton or will he struggle after missing all of last year?  He is a risk/reward guy.  Good Luck! (Round 4)
  5. Jay Cutler (CHI) – This is where I disagree with a lot of the draft kits and cheat sheets that I have seen so far.  The addition of Brandon Marshall and the re-signing of Matt Forte makes Cutler a fantasy starter.  One might be able to get him a little later, so wait after you have already filled RBs and WRs to grab “Cutty.” (Round 7)
  6. Matt Flynn (SEA) & Jake Locker/Matt Hasselbeck (TEN) – All 3 of these players are in QB competitions in camp, so none of them are guaranteed a starting job.  Hold off on these three. (Undrafted)

 Running Backs:

  1. Arian Foster and Ben Tate (HOU) – Foster is considered by most to be the number 1 overall pick for this year, because of the other player listed, Tate, I would take both LeSean McCoy and Ray Rice over Foster.  Still top 3 pick, but Tate will steal some carries and playing time (Foster – Round 1, Tate – Round 6)
  2. Chris Johnson (TEN) – Johnson had a down year in 2011 after holding out for a contract and never seemed to get on track, barely getting over 1,000 yards.  Look for him to rebound quite nicely this year and is worth a late first round pick.  (Round 1)
  3. Darren McFadden (OAK) – Another disappointment from last season.  If “Run-DMC” can stay healthy, expect 1,200 yards and double digit touchdowns.  (Round 2)
  4. Trent Richardson (CLE) – The number 3 overall pick out of Alabama is expected to carry the workload in Cleveland this year.  Almost no competition for carries there, so expect good things, but also keep expectations reasonable.  (Round 4)
  5. BenJarvus Green-Ellis (CIN) – The “Law-Firm” has a new address, but will be the lead back for the Bengals.  He should not be counted on as a lead back in Fantasy Football, but can contribute enough for the “FLEX” position.  (Round 6)
  6. DeAngelo Williams (CAR) – There are way too many guys that will be getting playing time in Carolina to rely much on DeAngelo this year.  If Jonathan Stewart goes down, his value takes a huge jump, but other than that, could be good for bye week fill-in.  (Round 8)
  7. Mark Ingram (NO), Peyton Hillis (KC), and Felix Jones (DAL) – These three players will most likely backup starters for their respective teams.  Hillis will get some goal-line carries and play more at the beginning of the season with Jamaal Charles coming off ACL surgery.  All three are good handcuff options if one was to draft the starters for their teams. (Ingram and Hillis – Round 9; Jones – Round 11)

Wide Receivers:

  1. Roddy White and Julio Jones (ATL) – The only two receivers worth taking in the first round of draft are Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson.  White is in the tier right below them and is in that Top 5 class.  The high powered Falcons offense also has Jones, who is a solid starter as well.  (White – Round 2; Jones – Round 4)
  2. AJ Green (CIN) – Green and Dalton made quite a rookie tandem last year in Cincinnati and are expected to do even bigger things this year.  Green is a borderline Top 10 receiver and treat him as such.  (End of Round 3)
  3. Mike Wallace (PIT) – While Wallace is the Steelers’ ‘home-run hitter,’ his contract holdout is costing him more than just money.  The emergence of Antonio Brown could turn Wallace into the number two receiver in Pittsburgh and that’s if he does agree to join the team this year.  He is worth a gamble because of the possible reward, but might want to grab a backup a couple rounds earlier than originally anticipated (Round 4)
  4. Percy Harvin (MIN) – After a career year last year for Harvin, look for him to finally surpass the 1,000 receiving yards mark this year, which would make him a starter in any fantasy league. (Round 5)
  5. Dwayne Bowe (KC) – Bowe is Matt Cassel’s favorite target, and with Cassel missing a bunch of games last year due to injury, Bowe’s number dropped significantly.  Cassel returns this year, but I expect the Chiefs to have a more conservative offense this year than two years ago, so look for Bowe’s numbers to be somewhere between 2010 and 2011. (Round 6)
  6. Robert Meachem (SD) – The number one receiver in San Diego takes over for Vincent Jackson.  He has Top 10 talent, but has never quite reached his potential.  (Round 7)
  7. Denarius Moore (OAK) – Another former Vol receiver, Moore was a training camp sensation last year.  He had moments of brilliance last season, but also disappeared for games at a time.  Carson Palmer has had a full offseason to learn the playbook and work with his receivers, so Moore is a borderline fantasy starter.  (Round 8)
  8. Kenny Britt and Nate Washington (TEN) – Britt is by far the more talented receiver out of the two, but with his injury and off the field problems, he might not be the best option for one’s fantasy team.  Britt is almost guaranteed to be suspended for a few games at the beginning of the season and Washington will move into that top receiver slot.  (Both – Round 10)

Tight Ends:

  1. Jason Witten (DAL) – Tony Romo’s favorite target is one of the best at his position, but with Tight End being such a deep position this year, one does not need to reach to grab one as early.  Also, with the possibility of a lingering injury (spleen) there are better options out there.   (Round 8)
  2. Jared Cook (TEN) – Cook finished 2011 on a high note, averaging over a hundred yards a game in his last three games.  If Washington doesn’t emerge during Britt’s absence, Cook will.  He has sleeper potential written all over him.  (Round 11)

Kickers:

  1. Stephen Gostkowski (NE) – He is the best in the business, so one will have to reach if he or she wants “Gotti” on his or her team.  Usually I advise to wait until the last two rounds to draft a kicker, but he will not be on the board there. (Round 11)
  2. Rob Bironas (TEN) – Bironas is a fantasy starter, but do not pick him before one of the final two rounds.  (Round 13)

Ultimately, it is up to the owner on how one wants to go about building a team and these are just a few helpful notes for draft day.
