I agree with roboblogger. The truth is Brandon Thomas should have been the starter when the season started. Coach O said he had a 'phenomenal fall camp' but he didn't get the starting job. During the Memphis game it was obvious the defense didn't have a clearcut leader....yeah we won the game but things went down hill from there. Brandon Thomas had his first start at middle linebacker against a WAC team and the rebels shut the team out. Something that hasn't been done by any Ole Miss defense since the '80's. Seems like the guys were finally in the places where they fit and they won that game. The same WAC team scored points when they played the almighty LSU. Hopefully Coach Nutt will play the best players and not who the Alumni or fans think is the best player. That in itself is Ole Miss problem....not a lack of talent as some choose to believe. The Rebels have talent....we just need to use it to win games!
