Olympic gold medalist and former Ole Miss star Brittney Reese will be among the headliner athletes at this weekend's Millrose Games indoor meet in New York City.
Reese, who won gold in the long jump at the 2012 London Olympics, is one of several Olympians who will compete at the New Balance Track & Field Center at The Armory, located just off Broadway in upper Manhattan.
The 106th annual Millrose Games will be shown live on ESPN3
starting at 6 p.m. CT Saturday and replayed on ESPN
at 7-9 p.m. CT Sunday.
Last Wednesday was not only National Signing Day but also National Ole Miss Day. With a recruiting class ranked as high as No. 2 nationally
, the Rebels were the talk of the sports world, and the exposure our university experienced is still being felt. Quantifying the value of that publicity is extremely subjective, and while we are still trying to determine a figure we feel is accurate, we are certain that it was a multimillion dollar day for the Red and Blue.
ESPNU's daylong NSD coverage highlighted Ole Miss probably more than any other school. ESPN also picked up the U's coverage periodically, resulting in Coach Hugh Freeze conducting two live interviews on the morning Sportscenter. Freeze also did on-camera TV interviews with Fox News, CBS Sports Network, FSN and CSS. For radio, we received approximately 30 interview requests on and around signing day, half of which were national radio shows. Among those that we were able to find time to accommodate, Freeze appeared on Mike & Mike In the Morning, the Jim Rome Show, the Dan Patrick Show and SVP & Russillo.
The print media clips continue to roll in, and we have documented at least 50 different articles so far. Among the more interesting recounts of the Rebels' historic day came from Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples, who spent two days as a fly on the wall of the IPF war room. Check out his article along with other highlights of the media coverage of National Ole Miss Day below.
From an internal media standpoint, OleMissSports.com earned 770,000 page impressions on NSD, which was tops among the 150-plus schools on the CBSSports.com College Network
, followed by Alabama, Tennessee, Notre Dame and Michigan. Our Signing Day Central
was a huge hit, and credit goes to Joey Jones, Darrias Thomas, Ken Edwards, Dan Pellegrino, Micah Ginn and so many others from our media relations and creative departments. As Coach Freeze has said, this is the "new norm" so let's do it all over again next year.
With Valentine's Day rolling in on February 14th, I Love Ole Miss week is the perfect way to show your affection for the Ole Miss Rebels. There are nine events in a five day span that are great opportunities for you to take part in cheering on the red and blue, including the home openers of Rebel Softball and Baseball. At five different events, you will be able to score a sweet I Love Ole Miss T-Shirt. Below is a schedule of events, so mark your calendars! Wednesday

Again this season, former Ole Miss players have owned the NFL playoffs. For the second straight year, a Rebel starred on all four teams in the championship round, meaning an Ole Miss alum is guaranteed another Super Bowl ring. Last year, Eli Manning was the Rebel hero of the postseason, and this year, it may be Patrick Willis, as he piled up 12 tackles Sunday in leading the 49ers past the Falcons. Come Super Sunday, he will be lined up across from our own Michael Oher, whose Ravens eliminated the Patriots. Here are a few notes about our Super Bowl Rebels.
- Ole Miss is one of only four schools in the nation with position starters on both teams (also Maryland, Miami [Fla.] and Rutgers). If you include special teams (add Arizona State and Texas to list), Ole Miss is one of six schools with starters on both teams.
- Ole Miss is one of 15 schools with players on both active rosters. If you include injured reserve and practice squad, Ole Miss is one of 22 schools with players on both teams.
- Of the 15 schools with players on both active rosters, Ole Miss is one of only seven that is guaranteed a second straight Super Bowl ring (nine if you include the Giants' injured reserve and practice squad last year).
- This will mark the third straight Super Bowl and 19th overall to feature at least one Rebel (Ole Miss Super Bowl history
- Willis and Oher will be the 21st and 22nd different Rebels to play in the Super Bowl.
- This will mark the 26th and 27th all-time appearances by Rebels in the Super Bowl.
- A Rebel will be a Super Bowl Champion for the 15th time in history. Follow me on twitter @CampbellKyle.
As the statistician for Ole Miss Football in 2012, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this season.
Part of my job is to pore through the Ole Miss record books, SEC and NCAA stats and make a note of trends and categories in which the current Rebels rank highly. I then develop nuggets of information to disseminate to TV, print, radio and internet media outlets.
Let's just say Hugh Freeze and company kept me busy this year.
Starting with a creative playbook generated by the offensive minds of Freeze and his coaching staff, and put into action via the superb athletic abilities of Bo Wallace, Donte Moncrief and others, the 2012 Rebels made a significant dent in those record books.
Wallace, for example, finished fifth in the SEC in total offense (260.3 ypg) and fourth in points responsible for (14.31 ppg). His season totals landed him into rarified air among the all-time Ole Miss greats. He joined Eli Manning as the only Rebels to ever reach 3,000 total yards of offense (Wallace's total of 3,384 is second behind Manning's 2003 total of 3,572). He's behind only Eli in passing yards, attempts and completions in a season. And Wallace's eight rushing touchdowns? The most by a Rebel QB since another Manning, named Archie.
That's just scratching the surface of what this year's Rebels accomplished. For a team coming off two straight losing seasons and being led by a first-year head coach and first-year QB, the significance of the stats is even more impressive.
So for those of you that enjoy this sort of thing, here are some of Ole Miss' achievements this year, by the numbers.
While the excitement of a bowl victory is still fresh on the minds of Rebel Nation, a lot of attention is already turning to what could be an even better 2013. The Rebels should lose only three total starters on offense and defense, as charted below (Note that we determine starters by who started the most games at that position). Recruiting is also a huge factor in the anticipation, as Ole Miss is currently rated around 20th in the major rankings (247Sports 18th, Rivals 20th, Scout 21st, ESPN 21st) with potential to soar much, much higher. At least one of the way too early 2013 rankings
has the Rebels at No. 25. Not bad for a team that won two games in 2011.OFFENSE
