The 2016 Ole Miss football team was considered weak at the linebacker position. However, if recruiting ends well, that group could eventually be a position of strength.
The defensive effort from the 2016 Ole Miss Rebels football team was lacking. However, there was a noticeable weakness at the linebacker level. Team tackling was abysmal. Even when the effort was there, the execution was off point.
Therefore, the fans are looking for any positive information to boost their spirits for the upcoming seasons. Well there is a chance that the very thing they were concerned about in 2016 could become an area of strength in future seasons.

Former Ole Miss DC Dave Wommack: ‘It’s amazing the turnover that’s happening in college football’

Coach Hugh Freeze leads his team on the field as the Rebels prepare to take the field Saturday taking on the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday at Vaught-Hemmingway stadium.
The turnover in college football these days is “amazing” to former Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack.
Speaking on Sports Talk with Bo Mattingly on Monday, Wommack presented an interesting thought about the current state of coaching in college football. Wommack, who retired after this past season following five years at Ole Miss, was asked why coaches’ reputations can change so quickly in the sport these days.
“You either didn’t recruit the right one sometimes or you developed somebody that you didn’t expect that stepped up,” Wommack said on the show. “It all comes down to game-to-game (situations) and then competition. Of course, the money that’s being paid in this day and time, it’s amazing. I look at it kind of like this — at Ole Miss, I retired about a month ago. I’d only been there for five seasons, and I was the most tenured coordinator in the SEC. So, it’s amazing the turnover that’s happening in college football in this day and time.”
That’s a revealing take from someone who spent nearly four decades as a college coach. In addition to holding the title at Ole Miss, Wommack was a defensive coordinator at Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Southern Miss, UNLV, Missouri State and Bemidji State.
