Time to Update the Ed Orgeron Project

We periodically check in on developments in Oxford, where Mississippi Madman Ed Orgeron was brought in to straighten out a program that was falling on hard times under David Cutcliffe. Mississippi officials decided to fire Cutcliffe in 2004 despite a 44-29 record and four bowl appearances in six seasons. Enter the Madman, who arrived after a successful stint as an assistant at USC. So things certainly have gotten better now, haven't they? Despite the Rebels putting up a fight Saturday against Georgia in a 14-9 loss, the Madman has yet to come up with a winning formula. His team is 1-4 and he has a 4-12 record overall, including 1-9 in Southeastern Conference games. Maybe it comes as no surprise that Ole Miss fans — at least some of them — wish Cutcliffe had remained the coach (registration).
