Opinion: No reason to believe Alabama-Georgia II will end differently, nine other takeaways from Week 7

  Opinion: No reason to believe Alabama-Georgia II will end differently, nine other takeaways from Week 7 Alabama's offense chugs on. Georgia's QB situation needs attention. Is Heisman race already decided? And Arkansas' Twitter win among Week 7 takeaways.The more immediate issue was whether Alabama’s offense or Georgia’s defense was going to win the battle within the battle; which unit was going to muster a push at the point in the game where it was all up for grabs.

The NCAA came down hard on the Ole Miss football program for lack of institutional control, penalizing the An 8- year show -cause order for the operations coordinator . The university , as part of self-imposed penalties, had already cut 11 scholarships over a four - year period from 2015 to 2018. Ole Miss also disputed charges that Lewis and Mississippi State defensive end Kobe Jones received

When the contract is negotiated, the offer and acceptance must match each other in order for the contract to be binding. For there to be a valid contract , the parties must agree on the essential terms. These include the price and the subject matter of the contract .

No other major college football team has struggled on defense this season quite like Mississippi, creating the temptation to make a lightbulb joke about just how badly the Rebels have been getting lit up on the field and off:

How many Mississippi defensive coordinators does it cost to change this lightbulb?

The answer this year is four, according to their employment contracts:

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

► One is Wesley McGriff, who was fired as the team’s defensive coordinator in November 2018.  Mississippi still owed him at least $1.1 million per year through Jan. 31, 2021, minus any pay he’s receiving at his new job at Auburn (about $300,000 per year).

Although these quarterbacks tormented defenses across the country, two defensive backs made this week's list after snagging multiple interceptions in their respective games.

► Another is Mike MacIntyre, who served as the team’s defensive coordinator for one season in 2019 but wasn’t retained by new head coach Lane Kiffin in 2020. Mississippi still owed him $1.5 million per year through Jan. 31, 2022, minus the pay he’s receiving from his new job at Memphis ($420,000 base salary).

► This year, D.J. Durkin and Chris Partridge are the Rebels’ co-defensive coordinators. They are making $700,000 and $625,000 annually through Jan. 31, 2022.

After winning just one of their first five games, their team this season ranks 100th out of 101 teams in yards allowed per game (556), 97th in points allowed per game (44.6), 98th in third-down conversion defense (57.4%) and 97th in rushing yards allowed per game (256.8).

Many of them served as army generals and navy admirals, defending Russian borders in different wars and battles. Another reason the show has been running for so long is that there is no main storyline, it is very much episodic, each episode telling a story of a separate adventure.

Coaching is only part of the equation. The Rebels’ roster on defense recently has been pared by injury and COVID-19 issues, including two starters who missed the last two games because of contact tracing protocols. They’ve also had to play Alabama and Florida, two of the nation’s top offensive teams.

But the moral of the story seems clear: Firing coaches can be expensive, with no guarantee the next set of coaches will fare any better.

“We’re playing a little bit better defense,” Kiffin said Monday on a video teleconference, noting improvement from earlier this season, when he stated that “there ain't a lot of positive things to find there” after giving up 51 points to Florida.

The school didn’t respond to a message seeking comment on the coordinators' compensation. The Ole Miss Athletics Foundation, a private fundraising arm for athletics, said in an audited financial statement this year that it has agreed to support severance and separation agreements with former athletics personnel. It said the amount paid for these agreements was $983,727 for the fiscal year ending June 2019 and $8.6 million for the fiscal year ending June 2020, about seven months after the university fired Matt Luke, Kiffin’s predecessor as head coach.

Lane Kiffin rants about secrecy among SEC refs after controversial Ole Miss-Auburn call

  Lane Kiffin rants about secrecy among SEC refs after controversial Ole Miss-Auburn call Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin is unhappy with how secretive the SEC is about officiating decisions after a controversial call went against the Rebels.Ole Miss was at the center of a controversial no-call from SEC officials in Saturday's loss against Auburn. An Ole Miss kickoff in the fourth quarter appeared on replay to have deflected off the finger of Auburn return man Shaun Shivers. The ball was then cleanly recovered in the end zone by Ole Miss running back Tylan Knight.

Many universities also offer courses on legal practice. Courses like this give students the opportunity to experience the work of a lawyer before deciding on a career in the law. Another way of finding out more about taw in practice is to get involved with a voluntary advice centre or law clinic.

In fiscal year 2021, the foundation said it expects to pay $3.5 million for such severance.

Both McGriff and MacIntyre had language in their Mississippi contracts that called for them to use pay from any new jobs they got after Mississippi to reduce what they were owed by Mississippi until their contracts with the Rebels ended. Even though that amount is only a fraction of what Mississippi owed them, this mitigation arrangement helps Mississippi reduce that expense over time instead of paying the departed coaches a lump sum to break their contracts earlier.

In the meantime, there is hope for these run-down Rebels. They play this Saturday at Vanderbilt (0-3), a team that ranks 97th in scoring with just 8.7 points per game.
