    You probably don't know Henry Swann. He's based out of Mobile, Ala., and works in hotel construction. Chances are, you are familiar with his alter ego, the fictional character Alabama Tom.

Ole Miss Preview

Returning Starters: 14

Offense: 5

Defense: 9

Pros - Talent and experience. The Rebels have a veteran leader at quarterback in Bo Wallace and go to wide receiver in Laquon Treadwell. The Defense is deep with 9 returning starters.

Cons - Talented skill players Jeff Scott and Donte Moncrief will me missed. Rebels also have to replace most of their offensive line.

Breakdown:

Aug. 28th vs. Boise State - Win

Sept. 6th at Vanderbilt - Win

Sept. 13th vs. Louisiana - Win

Sept. 27th vs. Memphis - Win

Oct. 4th vs. Alabama - Swing Game

Oct. 11th at Texas A&M - Swing Game

Oct. 18th vs. Tennessee - Win

Oct. 25th at LSU - Swing Game

Nov. 1st vs. Auburn - Swing Game

Nov. 8th vs. Presbyterian - Win

Nov. 22nd at Arkansas - Win

Nov. 29th vs. Mississippi State - Swing Game

The Rebels open up the season in Atlanta against Boise State. I think Ole Miss makes it past Boise and that sets up a huge home game with Alabama on October 4th. After that, the Rebels have big road games at Texas A&M, and LSU... those two road games are winnable, but losing both would be a big set back. They finish the year with their two hardest November games at home. Auburn, which is a similar style of team, and the Egg Bowl against Mississippi State. Of those two, Ole Miss needs to win back the state after falling to the Bulldogs last season 17-10 in overtime. Overall, I don't see a 100% definite loss, but they will lose a game or two. Last season, Ole Miss finished 8-5...this year I think a 10 win season is in the realm of possibility.
