The Season: Ole Miss Football – Fall Camp (2015)

– [Voiceover] This college
football season starts a new era in the entire year will be cast against a new and exciting back drop with the college football playoff. Hugh Freeze in his third
season at Ole Miss, he’s put together terrific
recruiting classes in the Rebels, they’re hoping that this will be a magical season. – We certainly talked
about this all three weeks about being all in and
no matter what happens, good, bad, or ugly, we
are handcuffed together for this year. – This for real bro,
I’m telling y’all bro. I’ve been here a long time. I’ve been here four long
years, but it’s the best team we done been around, I promise you. (upbeat inspirational music) – [Voiceover] Oh, tackled
at the 43 yard line. – [Voiceover] Got a man open, it’s Core on a seam route and he’s off to the races. The 50, the 45, he may go, he may go. 25, 20, down the middle of the field, the five, touchdown, Ole Miss. Cody Core takes it to the house. – Everybody do your job. Set the tone right now. – [Voiceover] Swings it, and it’s gonna be intercepted by Ole Miss. Picked off right off the top of the ground by Cliff Coman, he takes it to the house, touchdown Ole Miss. – I told you we’re gonna finish it coach. We’re gonna finish it baby. – [Voiceover] The pass
is gonna be picked off. And headed toward the house is Dolson. You won’t catch him. He’s gone. Touchdown Ole Miss. – [Voiceover] For the first
time since the Egg Bowl in the 1994 season, Ole Miss coming out in what most people call powder blue to honor Chuckie Mullins. – That’s violent football. That’s what we do. – [Voiceover] The Rebel defense again smothering, swarming,
they’re just everywhere. Land sharks are feeding very well tonight on the Memphis Tigers. – I told you you we were gonna make a play in the fourth quarter, way to go. That’s awesome. – We got Memphis this week. I mean there’s not much to say man. College game day here. It’s a wrap. – [Voiceover] They’ve got to beat the Tide at their own game. This Ole Miss team I
think has been building. They really feel, deep down in their core that they can win this game. – [Voiceover] Moral
victories will not do today, but again, this is old
territory for the Tide walking in as favorites with
a big target on their back. – When this thing’s over, and they start to tear
those goal posts down, hey, hey, them things are heavy, you better get back in here
and don’t get hurt, okay? (dramatic music) – This is the most important
cover of the entire game. We got them all moving right now. – [Voiceover] To the 20
to the 25, hit and fumble. It’s on the ground. Blue steel loose, who
has it boys and girls? And it’s Ole Miss’ football. – [Voiceover] Looking to
throw, goes to the end zone, wafts it, he’s got it,
forget the field goal. – [Voiceover] And the Rebel defense has been considered very good. Can they get a stop here to win a game over the Crimson Tide. Deep over the middle, in to the end zone, the pass is going to
be, left foot is down. The students are pouring on to the field. Ole Miss has knocked
off number one Alabama. – [Voiceover] Over the
middle, he’s got a man in the end zone, it is hauled in. Did he hold it? Yes, touchdown. – [Voiceover] Watch out, dropped the ball, picks it up, Ole Miss is running with it. – I seen it, it was in between Rob’s legs, and I took it out of Rob’s legs. – This is different. This sound hasn’t happened before. And we’re gonna keep going baby. – [Voiceover] Wallace might
want to take his shot here. Here it comes. And there it is, he got it. Touchdown. – [Voiceover] 34 to three,
the third ranked Rebels move to seven and 0. – [Voiceover] Set for the
start of the final quarter. Tigers trying to avoid losing to both magnolia state schools. – Hey we all want it no other way. Let’s go. – [Voiceover] This is
the 13th play coming up. First 12 all runs. Play action fake, throws in
to the end zone, touchdown. Logan Stokes. – [Voiceover] Down by four is Ole Miss. Auburn 35, Ole Miss 31. Quick pass to Treadwell. Still on his feet to the 10, to the five, he’s at the end zone. – [Voiceover] The ball
is recovered by Auburn. – [Voiceover] Just put a terrible twist on what has been a great game. – [Voiceover] Full man
rush, he’s gonna throw toward the end zone,
and again he did not see the deep safety lineman there, and it’s picked off in the end zone. It was intended for Walton,
taking it all the way to the house is Rohan Gaines,
he’s in there, touchdown. – [Voiceover] So the
Razorbacks are bowl eligible. The Rebels, pretty much out of the picture as far as playoff goes now, and gonna have to swallow
your pride and regroup and get after the Bulldogs
of Mississippi State next weekend. – [Voiceover] Good pitch
by Wallace to Walton starts right, nothing there,
then tries to go back left and then angles up the
middle of the field, oh he’s broken clear. He’s to the 20, can he get there? He’s got a blocker. 15, 10, five, touchdown, Ole Miss. – [Voiceover] All right
here we go, fourth and goal from the four for the Bulldogs. He looks for the run, now
throws to the end zone again and that’s incomplete. This one my friends is over. The Rebels have won the 2014 Egg Bowl. – [Voiceover] From the Georgia Dome it’s the 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. – [Voiceover] Trick play
to open up the game, how ’bout it? Touchdown. – [Voiceover] This thing started going downhill and its never stopped. In TCU’s favor. – [Voiceover] They’re absolutely making a big statement against a
very good team in Ole Miss. – [Voiceover] This is, I
had not seen this coming. You know what you’re gonna
hear from Hugh Freeze in his comments after the game, much like he was at halftime, a class act. He came in and went toe-to-toe, and they’re gonna have to sit on this for a number of months. (upbeat dramatic music) – I think we’ve addressed it by the way we worked this off season. I think every time during
a workout or something and someone gets tired, just bring up the fact that we got beat and I think it gives guys extra energy and everybody’s been
motivated to change that this summer. Nice to meet you. – You got to sign the mirror. – Oh, okay. Thanks. (upbeat music) – Look at that signature. Look at that Land Shark. You know that’s a nice little poster that we gonna hang up. – Gotta be fresh. Bow tie Mike’s in the house. – Oh you see ’em. Bow tie games too. – It’s something that I put together. You know, I feel like it’s pretty spiffy. We’re here, we’re in the
grin and grind interviews. We’re having fun, I look good. (upbeat jazzy music) – They got my man Evan in there right now. He gonna be like, (mumbles). You know what I’m saying. – I see you, I see you (mumbles). (chuckles) – I told you, didn’t I tell you he’s, you know what I’m saying? You know what I’m saying? (chuckles) – It’s gone really smooth, I mean, I hadn’t seen our players, I think, but some of the places I’ve been that’s had had our players
in there were very impressed with Mike and C.J. and Evan. All right, did any of
you boys embarrass us? Oh, I already know. I come in behind you. Well C.J. said you talkin’
national championship. That’s why they said we will
win the national championship, and me finish the sentence and say ’cause of the Land Shark defense. (upbeat jazzy music) – [Voiceover] Ole Miss is building. Coming off a nine and four season, and finishing in the top
twenty for the first time in five years, the Rebels have secured a firm foundation for the future, and have painted themselves
in to the national picture. As the days melt away,
and the mercury rises, Hugh Freeze and the red and blue are anxious to see how they measure up to the competition when the Rebels return for fall camp. – Man, you know it’s business. I’m always excited for business though. It’s just another day in the office. Ooh boy, it feel hot out here today, yay. She worked hard for ’em. She told me, she told me she was gonna get somethin’ nice you know. We probably stayed in here
since I been in high school. (phone ringing) This her calling me right now. (chuckles) Hello? Whassup? You just landed? All right, that’s good then. Well, I’m about to head in the car. I’m gonna give you a call when I make it down to the. All right, love you too. All right bye. You know that’s what you do it for. At least that’s what I do it for. (hip hop music) I can’t wait man. I’m so ready to get in to camp. Just being able to know,
say that I’m finally here right here is, is like the year. Like, you see what I’m saying? Like this is the year where
we all is at our highest peak. Like everybody’s pretty much set up in a good position to, you know, set the foundation for their future. And it’s like once you in that position, it’s like, there’s no pressure, ’cause it’s not like you want to lose, but if you want to win, you’re gonna do whatever you can to win, so that makes the pressure off you,
you see what I’m saying? Treat us like the professionals
in the NFL’d treat us. And if we all do that,
we’ll be perfectly fine. (upbeat jazzy music) – I’m coming to you live from the great Oxford Mississippi, and today as you know, we report today. We’re starting camp, in
other words grind season. – [Voiceover] One more time. – Taylor Polk, Magee
Mississippi, Brandon High School. – [Voiceover] Awesome. – Aaron Morris, Jackson
Mississippi, Calloway High School. (laughter) Hey, all right. – Laquon Treadwell (laughs) – Step one, grow the ‘stache, step two just kill the game. Robert Conyers, (laughter) – Rodrick Taylor, Jackson
Mississippi, Calloway High School. Ehhhh. – Denzel Nkemdiche, Grayson High School, Outer space. (laughter) I rewind. – [Voiceover] It’s supposed
to be outer space, and then, – I was trying to block that off, but. My bad, hold on. – The wait is over. It’s time to go. It’s time to go. Hey, we’re on a roll. – I’m just happy to be a
part of what’s going on. – Got (mumbles) out the way, it’s time to do a little team meeting. I’m ready to get to the real action, you know what I’m sayin’? – I got one question. Hit ’em with it bro. – Are, you, ready? (claps) – Here we go fellas,
three claps, all right. (everyone claps) Man, welcome to day one. Take a stand 2015. What are you bringing to your job today? What will you bring? What will your coaches bring? What will you bring all day long, all night long, being a pro from now until the time we dismiss tonight at 9:30. How was your snack last night? – [All Together] Great. – On point? That was pretty good I thought. Now, today’s word is teachable. Each word will run two day cycle. Until somebody tell me what we said the characteristics of
a teachable person are. Here’s one. – [Voiceover] Seeking advice. – Seek advice. I’m humble enough to seek advice, man I want to learn, and I want to dig in. Somebody else. Engaging man. Let’s be engaging in practice today. Engaging in the halls. All of those things, men,
as we go through today, may you be mindful of being a teachable spirit. All right, let’s have a
great, great first day. As we take a stand in 2015. Three claps. (claps) (talking) (upbeat music) – [Voiceover] Ready? – [Voiceover] Yeah. – [Voiceover] Mike, try again. – Breaking my cleats in. They brand new, I don’t
want to get out there and have my feet hurt. Grade A style right here. I don’t have to do too much work, just sit on ’em a little bit. Break ’em on in, make ’em a little flimsy. So I can run a little better out there, so your feet won’t be hurt. (upbeat music) – [Voiceover] What are the
little people doing today? Too slow. I’m glad you’re with us. – [Voiceover] Thank you coach. – Let’s have a fun ride. Be coachable, be teachable. – [Voiceover] Yes sir. – Watch, watch. Oh my goodness. Right on the tip, look. Look, I ain’t even behind the white lines. One more time, watch my eyes. Oh, that one was out
there and I smashed it. I just had to show Markell how to do it. Didn’t drop a one. I didn’t drop a one. Right there on the tip every time. You boys don’t know nothing about that. Blow it. (horn) (funky music) – Now get back. – [Voiceover] I’m too tired. – I know you tired, hurry up. Hurry up. – You got to go, this
ain’t no half speed drill. Hustle, hustle, hustle, hustle. Hey, hey, hey, hey,
you’ve gotta tread more. You’ve gotta tread more. (mumbles) Tight til the whistle. Tight til the whistle. Find it, be quick, don’t hurry. Be quick, don’t hurry. Good, good. Your hands are good
enough to make that catch. You know what I’m saying? So there’s your solution. This is engagement. You know what I’m saying? Am I passionate? Yes, yes, I want you to do well. So catch it with your eyes. (light music) – I need to turn that light down, I want to show you some
stuff about tracking. We’re due at 9:35 so I’m gonna keep you for about another four or five minutes. All right, up here on the screen, talkin’ bout tracking. Most of you are pretty dang good tacklers. You know what the problem is in tackling? Sometimes you don’t get there and get in a good position. And I know this is going
real fast right here, but it’s about having a landmark, which is a near hit. See how he got it, see all the five guys around him there? See this? So when you’re out there in pads, you can still teach yourself
to get in great position. Y’all start in a good stance don’t ya? You should finish in a good stance. Everybody got it? Guys, we are at seven
minutes we are on the field for a walk through, so you need to hustle. – [Voiceover] Yes sir. – You need to hustle, go, go, go. – What’s up fellas? Good to see y’all this morning. – Morning guys. – [Voiceover] Morning. – ‘Sup Mo? – They change it Miller? Did you have to have
three days of helmets? I’ve not heard that. The only thing I know
it’s always been two days of nothing and then show. I see that. – And then you can go full after that. We would like to go shoulder pads Ken. Is that all right? I continue to stress to our kids the great effort and energy and, but at the same time
take care of each other. First day of shoulder pads, it’ll all be tackle to the ground, all right? Wake ’em up. What are you bringing to your job today? It’s a chance to worship. Out there, get your guys ready,
let’s have a great practice. Let’s go. – Yeah, us kickers are
really looking forward to, Laying the wood today. – It feels good having
these things back on today. – Knock somebody around
a little bit today. Little ding dang, you
know, here and there. – Feel good to be back in the pads though. I feel like I got my costume on. – There’s no more excuses, so pretty much it is what it is. Eh, eh, make sure you
rally up your troops. Rally up your troops. – [Voiceover] 19, what
you got for me today baby? – [Voiceover] That’s it? – You taking any to the crib? – No. No. I don’t know who told you that. – Na, na, na will you be my shelter? Na, na, na, na, na. ‘Sup boy, how you doing? Oh, you got pads on today. (rock music) Love it, first day of
pads, first day of heat. We need it boys. We need it. Now you’ve got pads on. Now you can butt ’em. Now you can bring everything
you’ve got in to this. Block out. Good. Block out. Good. – [Voiceover] Good job Lo. Y’all better tell them boys to start lowering their shoulder. Y’all better tell that
boy start, all right. (rock music) – Good finish it, finish. He got some beef to him now, huh? I set him down. No, no, no. The first day of pads and
that what you want to do? Good, good, good. Way to go man. Woo. (inspirational music)
