Instant reaction - Ole Miss
First of all, good win for the Dawgs. They had to have this game and they won semi-comfortably. Though the game was never a blow it there was also little chance at any point of Ole Miss winning the game. The offensive line did a good job for the most part but still gave up too many sacks. Will have to watch to know how many of those sacks Murray contributed too. The defense played really well except for one play and on that play it appeared that Ole Miss had an uncalled false start. You still have to play to the whistle and the defense got burned on that one. The only truly troubling thing is what is starting to be a bad trend, special teams. Walsh missed 3 more field goals and we gave up another punt return for a touchdown. As for the running game Crowell was very good as was Thomas. Samuel is in danger of slipping to the clear cut number three. It appears to me he is a solid runner IF it is a downhill type run i.e. he starts running right at the snap and has basically one option for the hole. If it is any type of delay or he has to change direction he simply does not have the quickness to do anything.
