Is LaDarius White ready to take the next step? Due to graduations, the Rebels have loss over 40 percent of it’s scoring output from last season. Marshall Henderson is the only senior on this year’s team. So that means, of majority, this will be a young team. Experienced players, like junior guard LsDarius White will have to fill in the big shoes.
Ross Bjork supports Henderson suspension. How could you not support the decision of Henderson’s suspension. Henderson had drug abuse issues that needed to be stopped. Does he deserve a second chance? Absolutely. If pro athletes can get second chances, so should Henderson. Here is an article of Ross Bjork’s decision on Marshall Henderson.

Ja’mes Logan has moved on, how about you? Ja’mes Logan could have easily folded after receiving negative feedback from a lot of the Rebel fan base on Twitter. This came from his dropped pass on the Rebels’ final drive against A&M. If the pass would have been caught, the Rebels would have had a first down and possibly would have prevented the Aggies from pulling a second win. Logan would address on Twitter about the dropped pass, and since then has proven his performances in games. Since the A&M game, Logan has caught 13 passes and scored two touchdowns. He currently leads the Rebels in receiving since the A&M game. Here is a video of him discussing the topic.
To my real fans yeah I dropped a clutch one but please believe I'm gone bounce back like a true Rebel #85

Serderius Bryant discuss his comeback. It was a scary moment when Bird Bryant laid on the field motionless after sustaining a concussion in the Texas A&M game. Since then, Bryant has been on a very quick road to recovery, so quick that he made appearances in the Idaho game, just two weeks after the concussion. Here is a video of Bryant discussing his road to recovery.
Bo Wallace sitting in practice. Could we see a quarterback change in the Arkansas game? The answer is no. I pretty sure….no. Coach Hugh Freeze wanted this week’s practice to be about seeing what his young talent can do. He did report that both Ryan Buchanan and Devante Kincade impressed him in practice on Tuesday.
The NCAA has recently made some changes in recruiting rules. And Coach Hugh Freeze fully supports the change.
