Moving On To Shrek (Coach Orgeron)

Several pieces today across the Southeast focus on Ole Miss and Shrek. Things are very bad when a former coach blasts the current head coach as Billy Brewer blasts Shrek in David Paschall's piece for the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Ex-Coach Brewer No Orgeron Fan.

Tony Barnhart examines Five Coaches In Rough Spots in his blog for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, including Shrek in his list.

And finally, in today's Memphis Commercial Appeal, Marlon Morgan writes about Shrek's decision to stick with Brent Schaeffer as the Rebs' starting quarterback and what has been causing their offense to struggle. Interestingly, the article mentions that Schaeffer is only completing 46.5% of his passes and has only thrown 3 touchdowns versus 5 interceptions. These stats do not come at a surprise to me. In his only year at UT, Schaeffer completed a tad below 49% of his passes with only 2 TDs and a pick. Keep in mind, that the talent level at UT is head above heels better than that at Ole Miss. Still, not quite sure what the Rebel fans were expecting with Brent.
