OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss football team met for a little over two hours Tuesday on the practice fields adjacent to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, as they approach the middle of their second week of preseason camp in preparation for the Aug. 29 season opener at Vanderbilt.

"We've had two really good days, but we didn't put it in the end zone today," said head coach Hugh Freeze on the offense.   We stalled down there today; I made a couple of bad calls that put Bo in some tough situations.  But, we definitely are moving the chains and doing better at staying on schedule.  The rest of practice was kind of ho-hum."

While preseason makes for long days, especially with two-a-days, Freeze expects the Rebels to make the most of their time on the practice fields.

"Everybody is going through the grind," Freeze said.  "The only thing we have equal with our opponents is time.  The more we make of our time, the better we're going to be prepared.  Some periods today I felt like we just grudged through.  That's somewhat frustrating, but I know I am our worst critic."

So much of the early preseason talk has centered on quarterback Bo Wallace and how he's progressing after missing the spring due to shoulder surgery.  Tuesday, talk turned to the running game.

"It's sporadic at best, but I will be disappointed if our team is not very good against the run, with the stuff that they (defense) do.  It's very difficult to have consistent runs against them.  Hopefully we will experience more success playing other teams that won't quite have an understanding of what we're trying to do.  It's difficult to run against our team."

Fans should mark their calendars for the annual Meet The Rebels Day presented by Community Trust Bank, Aug. 17 at the Indoor Practice Facility. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.
