Almost routinely, Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt approached gathered media Monday to praise his defense.
He mentioned an experienced defensive line, the depth at various positions and some newcomers who've impressed early in spring drills. Offensively, the Rebels haven't fared so well. Nutt will say as much.
Senior defensive tackle Jerrell Powe can shed some light on the subject.
He meets a revamped Ole Miss offense daily. And far more often than not, Powe is disrupting the backfield with a green offensive line protecting young quarterbacks Nathan Stanley and Raymond Cotton.
Rodney Scott, a sophomore running back, fully understands the offensive frustration. A member of a deep and talented pool of backs, he's met the likes of Powe head on this spring.
