Mississippi searching for SEC-caliber players

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - There aren't many safe starting jobs at Mississippi's preseason camp.

First-year coach Hugh Freeze certainly appreciates the competition. He's just not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing.

The Ole Miss football roster is in various stages of disarray after two disastrous seasons. Freeze is confident he can rebuild the team's depth after a few years of recruiting, but that's not going to help this season.

So the past two weeks have been spent looking for the current players who can meet the demands of playing in the Southeastern Conference.

Some days, the search goes better than others. Answers are hard to find as the Rebels' season opener against Central Arkansas on Sept. 1 rapidly approaches.
