Yeah, Les Miles endured a lot of criticism throughout his career with clock-management blunders, but he’s far better than Houston Nutt.
Nutt’s been known to get his team up for a big-time upset, but other than that, he’s good for a season full of disappointments.
Look at the talent he had in Arkansas, and what did he do with it? He had possibly the greatest rushing trio ever with Darren McFadden, Peyton Hillis and Felix Jones, and no conference championships.
Now, Tyrone Nix is an excellent coach so I won’t touch their defense in this article, but Ole Miss’ offense has been horrid.
And most of the blame needs to go towards the play-calling. As I watched the Ole Miss/Arkansas game earlier this year, it became apparent to me that Scott, Bolden and Brassell have the ability to give defenses fits.
That’s just what Ole Miss did early, as they kept going Brassell’s way. But all of a sudden, Ole Miss abandoned it completely.
Suddenly, the Rebels became stale, and that’s been the story all year for them. Miles and his staff win this matchup by a landslide.
