Ole Miss Coach Ed Orgeron found a bright spot in the play of the offense today when the Rebs worked mostly in the Red Zone in their team drills.
The Rebs were in shells - shoulder pads and helmets - today.
"We let Seth Adams play a little first team quarterback today and he did a nice job," said Coach O of the walkon signal-caller. "We worked on Red Zone offense and defense today and the offense did a great job. They basically took it to the defense."
Coach O was pleased with some plays from some of the more well-known Rebel names.
"Robert Lane scored on a great catch, a fantastic catch, on the back line of the end zone. That's why he's at tight end, because he's a playmaker. We expect those kinds of plays from him," said O.
Orgeron was also very happy with the run drills by the offense.
"They were dominant at times. We made some changes on the offensive line. We moved Thomas Eckers to first team center and moved Mo (Maurice) Miller to first team right guard," he explained. "That was a great combination on the offensive line. You could really see that coming together. It clicked today. I'm very pleased with the way the offense is coming together under the direction of Coach (Dan) Werner."
Coach O didn't hesitate when asked who was carrying the mail the most effectively for the offense.
"Number 6 (BenJarvus Green-Ellis). He's a player," said Orgeron. "Mico (McSwain) had a slight injury, but he should be fine soon. Today, BenJarvus just had his way with the defense in the Red Zone. He's got an instinct for getting it in the end zone."
On defense, Coach O was not as happy with the results.
"Nobody stood out today on defense. The offense took it to us. We did not have a good day on the defensive side of the ball," he evaluated.
The Rebs will hold an 11 a.m. practice tomorrow on the practice fields. The scrimmage portion of the practice will begin around noon. The practice session is open to the public and media. Tomorrow will be the first full pad practice of spring training.
