Ole Miss Rebels
2020 Record: 5-5
5 ⭐ ………. 0
4 ⭐………. 7
3 ⭐………. 18
Year one of the Lane Kiffin era has to be called something of a success. 5-5 may not seem all that impressive, but the Rebels took a definitive step forward. Kiffin remade the offence in his own image, and the result was more than 550 yards and almost 40 points per game.
Year two, he’ll need to do something about the defence, which was every bit as bad as the offence was good.
Matt Corral is going to put up stupid numbers. There are holes at WR to fill, but the Rebels will once again be one of the highest scoring attacks in the country. Most of the key starters are back on defence, but there is no telling if that’s good news or bad news.
If Things Go Well:
Ole Miss should be able to outscore most of the teams on their schedule. They aren’t going to compete with the big boys yet, but a New Years Day bowl is a realistic goal.
If They Don’t
The defence will, in the end, determine what 2021 looks like for the Rebels. While they have the offence to outscore almost anyone, they also have the defence to be outscored by a lot of those teams.
Chalk up losses to ‘Bama, LSU and A&M, and there will likely be another stumble somewhere along the way. If the defence can improve marginally… and that’s a really BIG if, then 9 wins is possible.
