With just two weeks remaining until the regular season opener, No. 22 Ole Miss soccer is in full preseason mode as camp opened Wednesday for the Rebels.

A day after pictures and video shoots and team meetings, the 2016 Rebels hit the field early Wednesday morning for fitness tests.

“We’re fit, and we came back and crushed the fitness test this morning which was great for us to see,” head coach Matthew Mott said.

The first official practice came Wednesday night under the lights at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium, which provided the first look of this season’s team in an 11-on-11 format.

“The level of play tonight was really good,” Mott added. “Having this many veterans return, understanding how we’re trying to defend and attack, puts us way ahead of where I thought we would be tonight. The new kids have come in and played really well. Overall I’m really happy with the team.”

Two-a-days will continue on FridaySunday and Monday, before the Rebels prep to depart for Dallas, Texas in advance of the exhibition match slated for next Friday night at SMU.

Eighteen players return from last year’s group that made history advancing to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time in program history. Seven newcomers are also in their first collegiate preseason camp looking to contribute to this season’s success.

The 2016 regular season opens Aug. 19 against Louisiana-Lafayette at 6 p.m. in Oxford.

We created 5 NCAA super conferences based on geography, and they’re beautiful

College football appears to be hurtling toward a five-conference, 80-team “super” league that will shed dozens of fringe schools from the national playoff picture.

We’re still a ways off from the final touches, but the Big 12’s recent decision to expand has — for seemingly the millionth time — thrust realignment back onto the NCAA’s center stage. Will the conference add Houston? Memphis? Tulane? The options are many.

In an attempt to stay trendy while subverting the seriousness of it all, we’ve decided to conduct our own realignment.

The goal? To assign 80 teams to five super conferences based on simple geography.

No more conference road trips from New Jersey to Minnesota. No more divisional plane rides between Columbia, Mo., and Columbia, S.C. The geographically unsound side of realignment will be expelled to the special place in hell it always belonged.

Is Kelly the Best Ole Miss QB Ever?

If you talk to fans outside of Oxford the answer to “Who is the Best QB Ever at Ole Miss?” might be an easy one for them to answer. The last name will be Manning. The first name will be either Archie or Eli, depending on what era they grew up watching college football.

The Mannings are the ones that always come to mind, but how do the two Hugh Freeze era Quarterbacks, Bo Wallace and Chad Kelly, compare? Let’s take a deeper look statistically.

Archie Manning was Johnny Football before there was Johnny Football. In the days of statue Quarterbacks and run first offenses, Archie ran around and made plays with both his feet and his arm during his Ole Miss career from 1968-1970. ‘
