[MUSIC]. LAST WEEK ON THE SEASON. I’VE BEEN DOING THE JERSEYS FOR OLE MISS ABOUT FIVE YEARS. IT’S MY FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD TO DO. YOU KNOW I GOT THEM GUNS NOW, SO IT MIGHT BE — THAT’S ALL RIGHT, WE’RE GOING TO TRY. I’M TOO MUSCLE FOR THIS BAD BOY. CAN YOU SAY GOOD MORNING TO MARQUIS? GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. HI GUYS. SAY “HOTTY TODDY.” HOTTY TODDY. SO, YOU SEE, NASTY WIDEOUT. YOU SEE IT. YOU SEE IT. EVERYBODY’S TALKING. EVERYBODY’S TALKING BUT US, BUT THAT’S WHAT TONIGHT IS FOR. BUYING TIME, THROWS ON THE RUN. IN TRAFFIC, BROWN HAULS IT IN. BREAKS A TACKLE. A.J. BROWN DOWN THE SIDELINE. TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. HE’S A BAD MAN. OH, YEAH. [MUSIC]. [WHISTLE BLOWING] [MUSIC] FOR ANY TEAM, VICTORY MUST BE SHORT-LIVED. WHILE ALL OF OXFORD SINGS THE PRAISES OF MATT LUKE, THIS MORNING HE MARCHES TO THE BEAT OF HIS OWN DRUM AND, FOR A MOMENT, FORGETS ABOUT FOOTBALL. HARRISON, WHAT SONG WE PLAYING FIRST, DESPACITO? HARRIS IS THE DJ. YEAH. COOPER GETS TO PICK ONE SONG BEFORE HE GETS TO SCHOOL. WHAT SONG ARE YOU GOING TO LISTEN TO TODAY, COOP? I DON’T KNOW. [LAUGHTER]. [MUSIC]. [LAUGHTER]. THEY CLEARLY HAVE NO KARAOKE SKILLS, SO, YES, THEY GET IT FROM ME. WE HAVE OUR STAFF MEETINGS. WE GET TO THE OFFICE AT EIGHT, SO WHAT WE TRY TO — WE TRY TO GIVE EVERYBODY TIME TO TAKE THEIR KIDS TO WORK — TAKE THEIR KIDS TO SCHOOL IN THE MORNING BEFORE THEY COME TO WORK. SO, THAT’S A SPECIAL TIME. SOMETIMES WE’LL GET HOME SO LATE THAT THE KIDS ARE SLEEPING WHEN WE GET HOME. SO, I THINK THIS IS AN IMPORTANT TIME THAT WE GET TO SPEND WITH THEM AND GET TO DROP THEM OFF AT SCHOOL BEFORE WE GO TO WORK. WHAT SIDE AM I DROPPING YOU OFF ON TODAY? IN THE FRONT OR ON THE SIDE? ON THE SIDE. OKAY. YOU GOT TO MAKE A DECISION WHAT SIDE TO GO ON RIGHT HERE, SO HE LIKES TO GO ON THE RIGHT SIDE. [MUSIC]. COOP, HAVE A GOOD DAY, BUD. OKAY. LOVE YOU. ALL RIGHT, SEE YOU TONIGHT, BUD. LOVE YOU. HEY, HOW ARE YOU? CONGRATULATIONS. THANK YOU. YOU PLAYING BON JOVI? MM-HM. ALL RIGHT. KIND OF MAKES ME PROUD. BYE. BYE. LOVE YOU. BYE. HAVE A GOOD DAY. I’LL SEE YOU THIS AFTERNOON. [PHONE RINGING]. HELLO. DID YOU GET THEM ALL DROPPED OFF? I DID. HARRISON WAS PLAYING AC/DC AND BON JOVI. OH, HILARIOUS. WAS COOPER — WAS ANYONE SHY? WERE THEY SHY? COOPER WAS A LITTLE BIT SHY, YEAH. THAT’S SO CUTE. COOPER TRIES TO BE ALL BIG AND BAD, AND WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, HE’S KIND OF SWEET. YEAH. WELL, GOOD. ALL RIGHT, WELL, I LOVE YOU. HAVE A GOOD DAY. OKAY, LOVE YOU, TOO. HAVE A GOOD DAY. ALL RIGHT. BYE. SEE YOU. OKAY. BYE. I GET THAT CALL EVERY DAY. GOT TO HAVE THEM BOTH DROPPED OFF BY 7:40 SO THEY DON’T GET A TARDY. ONCE THE SONGS FADE AND THE MOMENTS PASS, COACH LUKE’S MIND SHIFTS BACK TO FOOTBALL AND REFLECTIONS OF HIS FIRST WEEK AS HEAD COACH. IT IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT AND, YOU KNOW, WITH OXFORD BEING A SMALLER TOWN, BUT THAT’S WHAT MAKES OXFORD UNIQUE. AND THAT’S — WITH MY WIFE BEING FROM HERE, HER WHOLE FAMILY IS FROM HERE, IT JUST — IT JUST MAKES OXFORD A UNIQUE AND A VERY, VERY SPECIAL PLACE, BUT IT DOES MAKE IT A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT. TWO WEEKS AGO, I COULD GO KIND OF HANG OUT ANYWHERE. BUT, NAH, IT’S GOOD. IT’S SOMETHING THAT — THAT, YOU KNOW, I’VE DREAMED ABOUT FOR A LONG TIME, AND JUST KIND OF — IT’S KIND OF SURREAL TO BE LIVING — LIVING OUT A DREAM, IT REALLY IS. YOU KNOW, I THINK EVERYBODY HAS THEIR FIRST, WHETHER IT’S A LAWYER HAVING THEIR FIRST TRIAL OR A SURGEON HAVING THEIR FIRST SURGERY, BUT IT WAS — IT WAS A REALLY, REALLY COOL EXPERIENCE. I JUST — MY WHOLE FAMILY WAS THERE, GETTING A CHANCE TO WALK THROUGH THE GROVE, AND, YOU KNOW, MOM AND DAD, AND WIFE, KIDS, BROTHER, SISTER, EVERYBODY WAS THERE, SEVERAL OF MY FORMER TEAMMATES DROVE BACK. IT WAS JUST A — IT WAS SPECIAL, BUT ONCE THE GAME KICKED OFF, IT WAS LIKE ALL THE NERVES AND EVERYTHING WERE GONE. IT WAS JUST FOOTBALL. SO, THAT PART OF IT WAS — ONCE IT KICKED OFF, IT WAS REALLY, REALLY GOOD. [MUSIC]. HEY, Y’ALL. WELCOME. WELCOME TO GAME NIGHT. REB TALK IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BOURÉ, OXFORD’S UPSCALE, DOWN-HOME RESTAURANT ON THE SQUARE. WOO, WE GOT SOME PEOPLE UP IN HERE. MAN, GREAT CROWD. GREAT TO HAVE YOU TONIGHT. EVERYBODY GIVE IT UP FOR WIDE RECEIVER A.J. BROWN, STARKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI. RIGHT HERE IN OXFORD, PLAYING SOME FOOTBALL FOR THE REBELS. AND 71 YARDS ON THAT FIRST TOUCHDOWN TO HELP THE REBELS INTO VICTORY OBVIOUSLY OVER SOUTH ALABAMA. HE BROKE THE SCHOOL RECORD FOR RECEIVING YARDS IN A SINGLE GAME WITH 233 YARDS. THINK ABOUT THAT. NOW, YOU GO OUT THERE AND YOU RUN DOWN A FOOTBALL FIELD, STOP, AND TURN AROUND AND RUN ALL THE WAY BACK DOWN, AND THEN COME BACK ANOTHER THIRD OF THE WAY, THAT’S WHAT HE DID; OKAY? THAT’S A BUNCH. ARE YOU REALLY IMPRESSED WITH THE OTHER GUYS IN THE ROOM? OH, MOST DEFINITELY. LIKE, I’M GETTING THE PRAISE OF BREAKING THE RECORD, BUT IT WAS MORE THAN ME OUT THERE. SO, I MEAN, WE DO IT EVERY DAY IN PRACTICE. WE CALL IT THE NWO FOR A REASON. AND IT WAS JUST MY TIME. MAYBE NEXT GAME IT WILL BE LAR’S [PH] TIME, OR VAN’S TIME, OR D.K.’S TIME, SO. I WAS JUST TRYING TO MAKE A PLAY, THAT’S ALL. I WASN’T REALLY WORRIED ABOUT THE YARDS. AND INDEED YOU DID. EVERYBODY, GIVE IT UP AGAIN FOR A.J. BROWN. [CLAPPING]. THANK YOU, A.J. APPRECIATE YOU. COACH, WE’RE GOING TO LET YOU GO. WE GOT SOCCER COMING IN. THANKS. MATT LUKE, REBEL HEAD COACH. LET’S GO GET UTM. [MUSIC]. UNDER CENTER THIS TIME IS FRANCOIS. THERE’S THE SNAP. STRETCH. FAKES THE HANDOFF TO COOK. SETS TO THROW. SETTLES. FIRES DEEP DOWN THE MIDDLE. ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE. THE PASS IS GOING TO BE INCOMPLETE AT THE TEN-YARD LINE. BACK THERE DEFENSIVELY KNOCKED THE BALL AWAY WAS KENDARIUS WEBSTER. WEBSTER IS SHAKEN UP. COMING IN ONE OF THE TOP CORNERBACKS, NOT ONLY IN THE SEC BUT IN THE NATION, HAS GONE DOWN. AND, AT THIS POINT, IT DOESN’T LOOK REALLY GOOD. OF COURSE, WE’RE SPECULATING THERE AND SHOULDN’T. THE LOSS OF WEBSTER WOULD THIN THE DEFENSIVE BACK FIELD. WITH THEIR EMOTIONAL LEADER SIDELINED, THE FATE OF THE REBELS SECONDARY WOULD LAY IN THE HANDS OF UNTRIED AND UNPOLISHED STUDENT ATHLETES. WELL, YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR, BECAUSE OF AN INJURY WITH KEN, WE HAD TO PLAY — YOU HAD TO PLAY SOME YOUNG GUYS. YOUNG GUYS THAT ARE TALENTED BUT JUST, YOU KNOW, MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY MAY NOT HAVE BEEN READY, BUT, BECAUSE OF INJURIES, YOU HAD TO GO AHEAD AND PLAY THEM. OH, I’M PLAYING ‘BAMA, OH, WE’RE PLAYING LSU, THAT’S HOW IT WAS LAST YEAR. I’M LIKE, I’M USED TO SEEING THESE GUYS ON TELEVISION, WATCHING THEM AT HOME; NOW PLAYING AGAINST THEM, IT’S DIFFERENT. A TOTAL BUST IN COVERAGE BY OLE MISS THAT TIME ON DEFENSE. SINCE WE HAD A YOUNG SECONDARY, I FEEL LIKE WE WASN’T ON THE PAGE SOMETIMES, LIKE, COMMUNICATION-WISE, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, WE WAS YOUNG, BUT, FOR THE MOST PART, I FEEL LIKE WE STILL HAD CONFIDENCE IN EACH OTHER. IT WAS THE CONFIDENCE IN NEWCOMER JAYLON JONES THAT WOULD PROVIDE THE OLE MISS SECONDARY WITH A SILVER LINING. I MEAN, ME, PERSONALLY, I WAS EXCITED TO GO BACK HOME TO TEXAS. I KNEW A LOT OF FRIENDS, FAMILY WOULD BE WATCHING. FLUSHED FROM THE POCKET IN A FOOT RACE AND TRIPPED UP AT THE 23-YARD LINE BY JAYLON JONES, THE FRESHMAN FROM DALLAS, TEXAS. BUT WHAT HAPPENS IS AS YOU GET IN THE EXPERIENCE AND YOU GET IN THE SEC AND YOU GET THE SPEED OF THE GAME, THEN YOU CONTINUALLY GET BETTER AND BETTER AND BETTER. HUBENAK GOING ONE ON ONE. AND INCOMPLETE. BECAUSE THE TRUE FRESHMAN JONES ABLE TO STAY WITH IT, GET HIS HANDS INVOLVED, KNOCK IT AWAY. REALLY NICE PLAY. HE DID A GREAT JOB ALL NIGHT. COACH JONES, GIVING HIM SHOTS AND HIM MAKING PLAYS. AND TOWARDS THE A&M GAME, MAKING GREAT PLAYS, I’M JUST LIKE, OKAY, JAYLON, OKAY. AND IT’S JUST COOL TO SEE A KID BALL OUT LIKE THAT AND BE ABLE TO PLAY AT A CALIBER THAT HE’S PLAYING AT. IT’S INCREDIBLE. I JUST WANTED TO, YOU KNOW, HELP THE TEAM OUT AND DO MY JOB, BUT ALSO, TOO, I HAD A LITTLE BIT MORE ENERGY JUST BECAUSE I WAS BACK AT HOME AT TEXAS, AND I WANTED TO SHOW OUT. IF THERE’S ONE PERSON WHO KNOWS WHAT IT TAKES TO SHOW OUT, IT’S FORMER NEW ORLEANS SAINTS DEFENSIVE BACKS COACH WESLEY MCGRIFF, RETURNING FOR HIS SECOND TOUR WITH THE REBELS, THIS TIME AS THE LEADER OF THE DEFENSE. I THINK COACH MCGRIFF IS GOING TO BE DETAILED AND HE’S GOING TO BE — HE’S GOING TO TAKE A VERY SYSTEMATIC APPROACH. READY TEAM. SET, HUT. FINISH. FINISH. HEY, THAT’S WHY YOU PUNCH AND DON’T LEAVE YOUR HANDS UP. THE TWO WEAPONS THAT WE HAVE IN SECONDARY WE DON’T USE ENOUGH ARE OUR HANDS AND OUR EYES, BUT THE KEY IS ONCE I USE MY HANDS, DON’T LET WHAT STOP? FEET. MY FEET. MY FEET. AND I’M GUILTY OF PAYING A LOT MORE ATTENTION TO THE SECONDARY, BEING THAT THAT’S MY BACKGROUND. YOUR EYES, WHERE YOU LOOKING AT, MYLES? FINISH. FINISH. JAWS RIGHT. EYES STAY ON THE GUY. IT’S A LOT OF PRESSURE WHEN YOU’RE COACHING SECONDARY, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, D LINE MAKE A MISTAKE, NOBODY IN THE STANDS REALLY NOTICES, BUT IF A SECONDARY GUY OR AN OFFENSIVE LINEMAN MAKES A MISTAKE, THE QUARTERBACK GETS SACKED, OR THERE’S A BIG, BIG PLAY ON DEFENSE, THEN EVERYBODY NOTICES. SO, YOU HAVE TO REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE GUYS ON THE BACK END TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE SPOT ON. IF YOUR TECHNIQUE IS SOUND, LISTENING TO YOUR COACHES, AND JUST PLAYING WITH A LOT OF ENTHUSIASM, PLAYING FAST, PLAYING PHYSICAL, LIKE WE ALWAYS PLAY, YOU’LL BE FINE IN THIS SYSTEM. THAT’S — THAT’S WHAT I’M EXPECTING TO SEE THIS YEAR IS THE IMPROVEMENT BECAUSE OF THE EXPERIENCE. YOU KNOW, THE GAME SLOWED DOWN FOR THEM, THEY UNDERSTAND DIFFERENT LOOKS, THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY’RE GETTING, THEY UNDERSTAND SPEED OF THE GAME, THEY UNDERSTAND DOWN AND DISTANCE, YOU KNOW, THEY UNDERSTAND ALL THE LITTLE THINGS THAT IT TAKES TO BE A VERY, VERY GOOD FOOTBALL PLAYER. I’M CATCHING TWO TODAY. YEAH, I’M GOING FOR TWO TODAY. [WHISTLE BLOWS]. [FIELD SOUNDS]. [SHOUTING]. HE THREW IT RIGHT TO ME. BUT I NEED SOME BETTER GLOVES. YO, SWITCH WITH ME. [FIELD SOUNDS]. [SHOUTING]. [MUSIC]. HEY, WHAT’D I TELL YOU? WHAT’D I TELL YOU, BABY? [FIELD SOUNDS]. COME ON, HE’S NOT CATCHING NOTHING. MAN, THAT COUNT AS A PICK. YOU LET IT GO AT THE BOTTOM. NO, NO, I HAD IT. I LET IT GO AFTER. YOU BEAT D.K. TO THE BALL, BUT THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE DROPPED IT. NO, NO, I HAD IT GOING DOWN, BUT AS I GOT UP I JUST LET IT GO. WE GOING TO SEE IT ON FILM. YEAH. WE GOING UNDER THE BOOTH. UNDER THE BOOTH. PLAY ON THE FIELD STANDS. ONE OF THE KEY CHARACTERISTICS THAT MYLES POSSESSES THAT MAKES HIM NOT ONLY A GREAT FOOTBALL PLAYER BUT A GREAT PERSON IS THAT HE HAS A CHAMPIONSHIP ATTITUDE. IT’S AN INCREDIBLE BLESSING THAT I GET TO PLAY CORNER HERE AT OLE MISS, AND PLAY FOR COACH JONES, A COACH THAT’S GOING TO WORK YOU, MAKE SURE THAT YOUR TECHNIQUE IS SOUND AND EVERYTHING. I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE YOUNG GUYS BECAUSE THEY’RE ALL COMING BACK AND THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO REALLY, REALLY SHOW WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED. THE BIGGEST THING THAT I’VE SEEN FROM THAT LAST GAME OF THE SEASON UNTIL SPRING BALL, THEY MATURED, MATURED MENTALLY AND THEY’VE ALSO MATURED PHYSICALLY, THE WAY THEY APPROACH MEETINGS AND THINGS LIKE THAT HAS BEEN HUGE, AND IT’S JUST A PROCESS. AND WE’RE EXPECTING GREAT THINGS OUT OF THEM, YOU KNOW, THIS SEASON. [MUSIC]. LET’S GO. HEY, HEY, THROW THE FIRST PUNCH. HEY, THROW THAT FIRST PUNCH. LET’S GO. LET’S GO. LET’S GO. COME ON. HEY, LET’S GET IT GOING. HERE WE GO. LET’S GET IT GOING. HAVE FUN, MAN. LET’S HAVE FUN. LET’S HAVE FUN. LET’S GO. LET’S GET IT GOING. WHAT’S UP WITH IT? YOU TELL ME. I’M BACK IN THE VAULT. HEY. IT’S ALWAYS A GOOD DAY TO BE IN THE VAULT. OPPORTUNITY, THAT’S ALL IT IS. WE GOT 12 GAMES. WE FITTING TO BE LIT THIS GAME, WATCH. STAY TUNED, TOO. LAST WEEK, WE STARTED OFF TOO SLOW, MAN. WE GOT TO COME OUT ALL FAST, FULL SPEED, MAN. THIS IS WHAT THE SEC IS FOR. WE’RE GOING TO PLAY FAST AND PHYSICAL, BRO. FOR REAL. HEY, LET LOOSE. HEY, LET LOOSE, HAVE FUN, ENJOY THE MOMENT. REMEMBER, IT’S A JOURNEY. ENJOY THE RIDE, BABY. HAVE FUN, PLAY LOOSE, GET IN, BREAK IT DOWN. I BELIEVE THAT. NWO ON THREE. I BELIEVE THAT. ONE, TWO, THREE. NWO. HEY, WE HAVE 12 SHOTS THAT ARE PROMISED TO US, AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM. 11:00 AM KICKOFF, SO WHAT? [SHOUTING]. HEY, YOU GET TIRED AT THE END OF THE DRIVE? GOOD. PERFORM AT YOUR BEST. PERFORM AT YOUR BEST. SMALL THINGS. SMALL THINGS. EVERY THICK, EVER TOE STICK, HEY, FINISH EVERY ROUTE WITH EYE DISCIPLINE, LOOKING THE BALL IN. LET’S DO EVERY LITTLE DETAIL RIGHT. [FIELD SOUNDS]. AND A HANDOFF OFF THE RIGHT SIDE. HUGE HOLE FOR GALLOWAY. AND HE’S OFF AND RUNNING ACROSS THE 50, 45. OLE MISS 40. A 15-YARD RUN IN THIS STRIDE FOR UT MARTIN, AND POISED FIRST AND GOAL AT THE TWO OF OLE MISS. NO SCORE. 10:52 TO GO IN THE FIRST QUARTER. COOK BRINGS A MAN IN MOTION. FAKES IT. KEEPS IT HIMSELF. RUNS OFF THE LEFT SIDE. AND A QUARTERBACK IS IN THE END ZONE FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. TROY COOK. THEY SAY FOOTBALL IS A GAME OF INCHES, AND IN THE EARLY GOINGS UT MARTIN WAS GETTING ALL OF THEM, FRUSTRATING THE DEFENSE AND LEADING TO AN EARLY NINE-NOTHING LEAD. AND HE PULLS THIS ONE HARD TO THE LEFT, BUT GOT IT JUST INSIDE THE UPRIGHT THERE. IT IS GOOD. DON’T RECREATE THE WHEEL. JUST STRIKE HIM, GET OFF THE BLOCK, AND WE’LL BE FINE UP FRONT. WE’LL BE FINE. YOU GOT TO PLAY FAST. GET TO THE BALL AND HAVE SOME FUN. WE AIN’T HAVING FUN RIGHT NOW. WE’RE JUST MAKING LITTLE MISTAKES AND THEY’RE COMPOUNDING; ALL RIGHT? LET’S GO PLAY OUR GAME. YOU GOT ME? HEY, WIPE THAT CLEAN, WIPE THAT CLEAN, LET’S GO PLAY. HERE’S A HANDOFF TO MOORE ON AN END AROUND. HE’S HIT IN THE BACK FIELD, BREAKS A TACKLE. GET IT, GET IT, GET IT, GET IT. RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE, JAYLON MOORE, HE’S GOING TO SUFFER A HUGE LOSS. RAMP UP. GOOD JOB. GOOD JOB. GOOD JOB. GOOD JOB. GOOD JOB. COME ON, D. COME ON, D. THERE’S THE SNAP. COOK BACK TO THROW. PRESSURE UP THE MIDDLE. AND HE’S SACKED AT THE 15. GOOD JOB THERE WITH A THREE AND OUT. GET THE BALL BACK. HOW YOU ALL WANT TO PLAY, D.K. HOW YOU ALL WANT TO PLAY. THEY TRY TO MAN US UP, YOU ALL KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON NOW. HEY, STAY ON THEM, LET’S MAKE A PLAY. FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW, THE REBEL OFFENSE FOUND THEMSELVES PLAYING FROM BEHIND. AND JUST LIKE SEVEN DAYS PRIOR, THE NASTY WIDEOUTS WOULD RESPOND. A.J., SCOOT UP. A.J., SCOOT UP. FAKES THE HANDOFF TO WILKINS. LOOKS TO THROW. DEEP DOWN THE FAR SIDE. GOT A MAN, CAUGHT AT THE 20. THAT WILL BE MR. A.J. BROWN. HE TAKES IT TO THE REBEL HOUSE FOR THE TOUCHDOWN. AND THE REBELS ARE BACK WITHIN THREE. THAT’S IT. THAT’S A BAD MAN. THAT’S A BAD MAN. YOU KNOW THE GAME STARTED AT 11:00 O’CLOCK, SHEA. YOU WANT TO COME AT, LIKE, 11:30. GUN FORMATION FOR SHEA PATTERSON. THERE’S THE SNAP. FAKES TO JORDAN WILKINS. LOOKS TO THROW. FIRES DEEP IN THE MIDDLE. HE’S GOT FIVE WIDE OPEN. CAUGHT AT THE 30. WHEN OLE MISS IS IN TROUBLE, YOU GO TO THAT RECEIVING CORPS. TAE MARTIN HAD NO SHOT. THERE’S THE SNAP. AND PLAY ACTION BOOTLEG PASS WIDE OPEN END ZONE. GRABBED BY A.J. BROWN. TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. OLE MISS, 17, AND UT MARTIN, 16. SO, THE REBELS ARE ABLE TO FIGHT BACK AND GET A LEAD HERE JUST A FEW SECONDS BEFORE THE BREAK. WE TALKED ABOUT — WE TALKED ABOUT HAVING A PICTURE IN OUR HEADS OF WHAT A GREAT TEAM LOOKS LIKE, AND THAT FIRST HALF, IT DIDN’T LOOK THAT WAY. BUT GUESS WHAT. GOOD. GOOD. IT’S A FOUR-QUARTER GAME AND WE’RE GOING TO GO FINISH IT. WHEN DO WE DO MORE DRILL? AT THE END OF PRACTICE. LEAVE THIS FIELD WITH A PICTURE IN YOUR MIND OF WHAT A GREAT SEC TEAM IS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE. FAMILY ON THREE. ONE, TWO, THREE. FAMILY. HEY, SHEA, GET THEM GOING. GET THEM GOING. HEY, LET’S GO HAVE FUN, BROTHER. PLAY ACTION. PATTERSON WITH TIME. OPEN MAN. AND, AGAIN, IT’S A.J. BROWN FINDING HIMSELF WITHOUT A SINGLE DEFENDER AROUND HIM. FIRST AND GOAL FOR THE REBELS, TRYING TO COMPLETE THIS DRIVE. THERE’S A HANDOFF. STRAIGHT AHEAD INTO THE END ZONE. TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. THEY STILL NOT COVERING THOSE SWING ROUTES. STILL NOT. SO, MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR WIDTH AND GET ALL THE WAY OUTSIDE AND STAY ALIVE OUT THERE; OKAY? SHEA, BACK TO THROW. SWINGS IT OUT TO THE FAR SIDE. CAUGHT BY WILKINS. HE’S GOT SOME ROOM, THE TEN, FIVE, AND GETS TOWARD THE PYLON. HE BREAKS THE PLANE. TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. GREAT JOB BLOCKING. GREAT JOB BLOCKING. HEY. HEY, ALL THAT JOB, YOU ALL ARE KILLING THEM ON THE OUTSIDE. YOU ALL ARE BLOCKING THE HELL OUT OF THEM. LISTEN. THERE’S THE SNAP. BACK TO THROW. HE’S GOING TO LODGE TOWARDS THE END ZONE. LODGE REACHES UP AND MAKES THE CATCH. TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. DAMARKUS LODGE. BOY, YOU COULD SMELL THAT ONE COMING. ONE-ON-ONE COVERAGE OVER THERE, AND SHEA JUST SAID GO GET IT. LET’S GO. GREAT JOB, BABY. GREAT JOB. NICE. WHAT WE GOT? WE GOT NWO. THERE’S THE SNAP. SWINGS IT NEARSIDE. THAT’S GOING TO BE CAUGHT BY SWINNEY. SWINNEY TO THE TEN, TO THE FIVE, LOWERS HIS HEAD, DROPPED AT THE TWO-YARD LINE. THE CENTER IS PATTERSON. HE’S GOING TO LOB IT ONE ON ONE. METCALF, CORNER. RIGHT CORNER. HE HAS IT. D.K. METCALF WITH THE TOUCHDOWN OLE MISS. YOU WANT TO CHECK OUT THE RECEIVER, YOU JUST LOOK BELOW, NASTY WIDEOUTS, THAT’S NWO. HELLO. YO. YO. IT DOESN’T MATTER, YOU SHOULD HAVE SPANKED HIM AND SCORED. YOU DIDN’T WANT TO SCORE, THAT’S WHAT IT WAS. YOU DIDN’T WANT TO SCORE. HEY, SWINNEY. 45-23, YOUR FINAL SCORE. ANOTHER RECORD-SETTING PERFORMANCE BY SHEA PATTERSON, WHO CONTINUES TO IMPRESS BOTH STATISTICALLY AND WITH HIS LEADERSHIP ON THE FIELD. [MUSIC]. NOW I’M FEELING GOOD, MAN. WE’RE TWO AND 0. IT WASN’T THE BEST WIN, BUT WE GOT ANOTHER CHANCE TO GO IN THE LAB AND GET BETTER. WE CAME OUT AND GOT THAT W. IT WASN’T PRETTY, BUT WE’RE TWO AND 0, THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS. COACH LUKE UNDEFEATED IN HIS COACHING DEBUT RIGHT NOW. NOW, WE TALKED ABOUT HAVING A PICTURE IN OUR MIND OF WHAT WE WANT OUR FOOTBALL TEAM TO LOOK LIKE. WE HAD THAT PICTURE IN OUR MIND. NOW I WANT YOU TO ENJOY EVERY WIN, BECAUSE THEY’RE PRECIOUS. WE GOT TWO DOWN. WE GOT TEN LEFT. WE GOT — ON DEFENSE, WE GOT TO GO STOP THE RUN. ON OFFENSE, WE GOT TO BE ABLE TO RUN THE BALL. WE’RE SUPPOSED TO RUN THE BALL BECAUSE WE GOT A ROAD TRIP COMING UP TO CAL; OKAY? HEY, HEY, WHEN YOU GO ON THE ROAD, IT’S JUST US. WE GOT A LOT OF GETTING BETTER TO DO. ALL RIGHT, WE GOT TO CLEAN THE LITTLE THINGS UP, THE LITTLE THINGS THAT WE CAN CORRECT, AND WE’LL GET THAT DONE, BUT WE’RE GOING TO GO ON THE ROAD WITH THE MINDSET. YOU ALL HEAR ME? YES, SIR. HEY, PROTECT THIS FOOTBALL TEAM TONIGHT. CONGRATULATIONS, WE’RE TWO AND 0. OVERALL, I JUST THOUGHT WE PLAYED A LITTLE BIT SLOPPY TODAY. JUST GOT TO GO BACK AND WE GOT TO LOOK AT IT, AND WE GOT TO IMPROVE. I THINK WE PLAYED — THOSE GUYS PLAYED REALLY, REALLY HARD. WE GOT TO GO BACK AND WE GOT TO GO BACK TO FUNDAMENTALS AND DOING THE LITTLE THINGS RIGHT, IF, YOU KNOW, IF WE WANT TO WIN THOSE TOUGH GAMES ON THE ROAD AND WIN SEC PLAY. THERE’S SOME THINGS WE NEED TO GET SHORED UP. MAN, FIRST GAME DAY, IT WAS A SUCCESS. WE GOT MY FOOT GOING A LITTLE BIT. NOW I’M READY FOR NEXT WEEK. WE KNOW WHAT’S UP. CAL. OH, JERSEY BOY CAL. OH. GOOD WIN, YOU KNOW. FITTING TO GET READY TO GO ON THE ROAD TO CAL; YOU KNOW? WE’LL SEE YOU THERE. HEY, TWO AND 0, WE GET TO GO TO WORK NEXT WEEK, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING, GET READY FOR CAL. FEELS GOOD TO GET BACK AT IT, BUT WE’RE GLAD TO BE TWO AND 0. THANK YOU, REBEL NATION.

  1. I like this Matt Luke guy. Regardless of the team's record he seems like a genuinely good person. Not all the fake faith and Jesus talk like Freeze. Let's give this guy fair shot.

  2. am really good at sticking a receiver and staying with him but i don't have hands does that mean i got no chance being one
