So beating them is not saying much. This is from a former life-long Ole Miss supporter. That is another problem. Ole Miss has lost a ton of support due to some changes that has gone on there. I have serious doubts that the team could beat SMU. The changes that Ole Miss has made has ripped the school apart. For Ole Miss to make the plays they did against Texas, it would make me worry about the Longhorn's defense.
I realize that the seasons is still very early but lets be fair here. Ole Miss, up until this past weekend, was leading the SEC in offense and is still 2nd by a decent margin. Moncrief is a freak! He is leading the conference in receiving by a pretty good stretch as well. Texas tried to cover him in single coverage for much of the game and they paid for it. Moncrief is a 6-3, 220 lbs WR who catches everything and can run routes. If we have to see WRs like this kid every week, I would be very worried. Fortunately, we don't because there are not a lot of Moncriefs anywhere in the Country.
Bo Wallace, he throws too many INTs but he's 3rd in the Conference in Passing % so he is making the throws. He's not a bad QB by any means. He will get better as time goes on with experience.
The running game is solid. Lawrence is averaging over 6.5 yards per care and is tied for 2nd with 4 rushing TDs.
This team is no slouch offensively.
