Ole Miss motivational video

We've heard the speech used at at the beginning of this clip in previous videos (and it's a good one), but take a look at the official motivational video that Hugh Freeze and his staff showed the team before the Arkansas game.

This one had the them ready to play.

Ole Miss put up 21 points in the second quarter and kicked a field goal (the kicker's third of the game, which included a 53 yarder earlier in the fourth quarter) as time expired to give the Rebels the win in Little Rock.

Freeze and his staff have the Rebels sitting at 5-3, and 2-2 in conference play in his first season in Oxford, which is a far cry from how they've competed the past few seasons. The last time that the Rebels had five wins at this point in the year was 2009, when they finished 9-4 and wrapped the season up with a bowl victory over Oklahoma State.

The Rebels now only need one win against their four remaining opponents to become bowl eligible. That will be easier said than done though, as their remaining schedule includes Georgia (7-1, 5-1) this weekend, followed by a home game against Vanderbilt (4-4, 2-3), and then hitting the road to take on LSU (7-1, 3-1), before finally wrapping up the regular season with a home game against Mississippi State (7-1, 3-1). 

That's a tough stretch.
