Ole Miss looked much better in 2012, finishing year one of the Hugh Freeze era at 7-6.
However, Freeze wants to take his team to another level this season. For that to happen, the Rebels must begin making adjustments in several important statistical categories.
Among areas of concern for Ole Miss last season were pass defense, punting, punt returns, field goals, kickoff-coverage, third-down defense and turnover margin.
It's important to note that four of the seven categories above were special teams areas.
Without vastly improved special teams play in 2013, Ole Miss won't possibly be able to meet their own expectations this season. In a conference as talented as the SEC, it's the little things that make differences in games.
Let's review each area of deficiency Freeze must focus on this spring.
