Both teams put up 10 hits, but Ole Miss made much more from its contact to sweep Alabama with an 8-2 win in game three. In general, 20 runs scored, eight runs allowed, and three wins is a very nice weekend weekend in the SEC. Ole Miss is back on track with a .500 record in conference play. 


Player of the Game: Will Golsan. Ole Miss has needed an offensive spark, and Golsan provided that on Sunday. He went 2-for-3 with three RBIs and two runs scored. More importantly, his hits came when the Rebels really needed them. In the bottom of the seventh, his two-run home run pushed the Ole Miss lead out to 4-1. He followed that by putting an exclamation point on Ole Miss' three-run eighth with an RBI double.  


Key Moment: After adding three insurance runs in the seventh inning for a 5-1 lead, Ole Miss turned to Dallas Woolfolk. Woolfolk is normally an automatic three outs, but he ran into some issues today. With one run already in, Alabama had the bases loaded and just one out in a 5-2 game. It was a huge opportunity for the Tide to get right back in the game, but Woolfolk wasn't having any of it. A fly out where the runner couldn't tag up resulted in the second out of the inning. Woolfolk escaped the jam with a full count strikeout to keep the three-run lead intact. In the bottom of the inning, Ole Miss ended things for good by adding three more runs. 


Number of the Game: A theme of the weekend was Alabama would get guys on base but be unable to get the hit to move them around. Alabama hit .152 (7-for-46) with runners on base in the series.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
