Rebels in 2014 Preseason Top 25's

The 2013 college football season came to a close last Monday, as Florida State defeated Auburn, 34-31, in the Vizio BCS National Championship game. Ole Miss finished the 2013 season with an 8-5 record, capped by a 25-17 win over Georgia Tech in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.

Ole Miss and head coach Hugh Freeze open the 2014 season in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Boise State and first-year head coach Bryan Harsin at Atlanta's Georgia Dome on Aug. 28. Other key upcoming dates between now and the season opener include National Signing Day on Feb. 5 and the Grove Bowl on April 5. Here are a few way-to-early top 25's and where the Rebels are ranked:

If Ole Miss can patch up its offensive line, it could be scary. That's an enormous if, with more than half of the group moving on, but it doesn't hurt to have gifted left tackle Laremy Tunsil locked in for at least two more seasons. Yes, the unbelievable crop of youth will be a year older, and the defense won't lose much. Offensively, Donte Moncrief will have to be replaced at wideout, but Laquon Treadwell is poised to pick up the slack, and then some. Can Bo Wallace be more "Good Bo" than "Bad Bo" next season? If yes, then this could be the year Ole Miss surges.

QB Bo Wallace returns for his senior season to lead an offense that should be very explosive. But it's the defense that might well have Rebel fans on their feet screaming, "Hotty Toddy." With a forgiving schedule -- Vanderbilt and Tennessee as the SEC East opponents, and Alabama and Auburn both coming to Oxford -- could this be the year the Rebels finally contend for the SEC West?

Martin Rickman (@martinrickman), Sports Illustrated: 19th

All those blue-chip recruits from National Signing Day 2013 are a year older, a year wiser and a year stronger. Early playing time was invaluable to those guys, and even in a tough season, Ole Miss impressed with wins over LSU and Texas. The schedule doesn't get any easier in '14, but the Rebels should be ready.

Why this ranking could be flawed: Dr. Bo could be mistaken for a real doctor and asked to help assist a birth in a limo, like that one The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode. Rattled after another Egg Bowl loss, coach Hugh Freeze could start to see eggs everywhere, a phobia that hampers his game-planning ability.

Mark Schlabach (@Mark_Schlabach), ESPN.com: 20th

After going 8-5 this past season, Rebels coach Hugh Freeze can look forward to talented freshmen such as defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, safety Tony Conner and receiver Laquon Treadwell being older and wiser in 2014. Unfortunately, Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Texas A&M aren't leaving the SEC West anytime soon. Ole Miss will have to replace three starting offensive linemen as well as junior receiver Donte Moncrief, who announced he's turning pro. Quarterback Bo Wallace is coming back for his senior season, after throwing for 3,346 yards with 18 touchdowns this past season. The Rebels might lose only two defensive starters: end Cameron Whigham and linebacker Mike Marry. Ole Miss opens the season against Boise State in Atlanta and they'll play Alabama and Auburn at home. The Rebels will play difficult SEC road games at Texas A&M and LSU.

Jerry Hinnen (@JerryHinnen), CBSSports.com: 24th

The Rebels didn't quite live up to their billing in 2013, but if Hugh Freeze can coax some further improvement from Bo Wallace, a defense that returns up to 10 starters and is absolutely loaded with developing stars -- end Robert Nkemdiche and safety Tony Conner among them -- could lead Ole Miss back into the SEC west's top half.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
