OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss football team practiced for the second time in preparation for the 2010 season, and coach Houston Nutt was positive about the squad's efforts during the two-and-a-half hour session in the Indoor Practice Facility on Monday, especially from many of the younger players.

"We came out here again with a lot of enthusiasm," Nutt said. "The shade probably had a lot to do with that. We saw some guys improve today, and that's what it's about."

Freshman wide receiver Vincent Sanders was admitted to the University on Monday and took part in the afternoon drills.

Nutt was pleased with Sanders, as well as several other newcomers.

"It was good to get Vincent Sanders out on the field today. He made a couple of good plays. We got him in the mix fairly quickly today, but he's a little lost. There are a lot of freshmen that are lost right now, but you just love how hard they are playing. Carlton Martin - you can't say enough good things about him. Carlos Thompson, Ralph Williams, Jeff Scott, Martez Eastland, Jared Duke, Chase Hughes. Those young guys are just working hard and I appreciate the way they're going about things."

The quarterback competition was again a focal point of the practice session, as the Rebels look to replace Jevan Snead, who departed for the NFL after two nine-win seasons and Cotton Bowl victories in Oxford. Nutt commented on first-stringer Nathan Stanley and recent addition Jeremiah Masoli.

"Nathan Stanley made good reads. We had a lot of third-and-8s, third-and-9s, tough situations with blitzes. I thought he handled it very well. He threw the ball much better than he did yesterday.

"Jeremiah continues to make plays. The most impressive thing is for a guy who just started to learn the playbook, he catches on very fast and did some good things again today."

Monday's session saw the Rebels still in jerseys and shorts with no shoulder pads. Tuesday's practice will be the first with shoulder pads, while the team will don full pads later in the week and go through a scrimmage on Saturday. Practice is open to the public through the remainder of the week.

Monday was a full day of activity for the team. The annual Ole Miss Media Day took place in the morning with players and coaches meeting with media members from print, television and radio before a walk-through in the late morning.

The season opener is Sept. 4 against Jacksonville State at 2:30 p.m., at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
