In 2012, Marcel Thiemann became the fourth player in Ole Miss men's tennis history to earn All-America honors three times. Thiemann also became the third player to earn All-SEC first team honors three years. He helped lead the Rebels to their 19th consecutive NCAA appearance and the program's 16th Sweet Sixteen showing.  He ended his career ranked No. 22 in singles and No. 11 in doubles, with his brother Chris Thiemann. The duo made the finals of the 2011 ITA National Indoor, won the 2012 SEC Indoor Championship, and capped a great career reaching the NCAA Final Four in doubles.   


A three-time ITA Scholar-Athlete and Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year finalist, Marcel graduated from the University of Mississippi in 2012 with a degree in Managerial Finance. He earned an MBA in 2013 followed by a Masters in Accountancy.

    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.
