Well the Rebels didn’t look like the team that got chomped in the swamp in Gainesville a week ago on the road.
Instead, they look like the team whose game plan was not faltering this week improving to 5-1 with the final score for homecoming in Oxford 3-52. Now folks even though the Rebels ran up the score we are still not in the red next week as we travel up 55 to take on Memphis.
The injury list was not in the favor of the Rebels this week and they had to make some adjustments on both sides of the ball which was not all that bad for Coach frees and his guys today against this aggies. With the utilization of the depth and rotation of new players and impact players this could be the chance for the Rebels to have some time to rehab and get healthy not just for Memphis but when the rough and tough Texas A&M Aggies come to our turf in two weeks.
Though it seemed that Chad Kelly had a command on his offense and worked his swift swagger to make the Rebels capitalize early on there’s still a few key adjustments the Rebels are going to really have to focus on capitalizing in the Redzone . Don’t get me wrong the Rebels did make some much need adjustments to the game plan on the offense but their are still a few holes that need to be filled quickly.
The air in the Vaught just seemed to smell like a change today as the Rebel Nation cheered on our team and hopefully this can stay in the graces of games to come.
C. Joy Bell once wrote, “The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
The Rebels have seem to slowly allow themselves to be unmasked to learn to grow to change towards success hopefully we can make it stick this time like we have long for so long.
