Close Not Good Enough For Rebels Orgeron (but it's getting there)

The Ole Miss Rebels are beginning to show strong signs of improvement under second year Coach Ed Orgeron...

Coach O's squad travelled to Alabama, a place it's had great difficulty finding success, and played the Crimson Tide off its' feet before falling in overtime 26-23.

But don't think coming close is going to get any attaboys from the Boss..

"Make no mistake, we are not in the business of playing games close on the road or at home. We are out to win games, that's the bottom line. The purpose of this game is not to play close, but to win."

Orgeron says the Rebels will have to ramp it up even higher just to stay close to Arkansas..

That game schedulad next Saturday, 11:30am at Fayetteville.
