With one month of college football behind us, has the Ole Miss team met or failed expectations thus far?

The Rebels have reached expectations in terms of effort, intensity and where most thought their record (3-1) would be after four games. Giving up 66 points to Texas was unexpected, as well as a rash of turnovers in the last two games, but everything else has been on target.

What one player has been the key factor in the first 3-4 games?

Without question, quarterback Bo Wallace has been the catalyst for what success the Rebels have had to this point. He's operating a fast-paced offense that is a little undermanned overall with very good efficiency.

What are the key improvements that need to be made in order to ensure a successful season?

To be successful in the SEC, the Rebels will have to keep improving on the offensive and defensive lines. Games in the SEC are won in the trenches and the Rebels did not hold up against Texas up front. Texas, for all intents and purposes, has SEC talent.

How would your team define "success" this season?

Weekly improvement and never quitting.

What is the most dominant headline the remainder of the season?

"Rebels Upset --------"

Thanks to the Ole Miss Spirit's Chuck Rounsaville for his in-depth contribution to this report.
