However, Nutt, who ushered in his third spring practice as head coach, bounced around the practice fields with excitement. The days and weeks ahead are all about teaching - a task he's readily prepared for.

Ole Miss used every bit of two hours and 24-plus periods for practice. Players spent much of the afternoon in individual work, before scrimmage drills ended the day. The No. 1 offense and defense even squared off to cap a fairly energetic opening day.

More or less, Saturday was what Nutt was looking for. He saw an eager bunch, ready to meet its challenges head on.
