After the loss to the LSU Tigers Saturday evening there are a few things which we learned about this Ole Miss football season.

It was a rough night for Ole Miss football. The LSU Tigers running-back Derrius Guice had a huge night rushing to cement the win over the Rebels. Guice had 272 yards rushing on 22 carries in the game. The LSU rushing attack totally dominated the Ole Miss defense and left the Rebels with a 3-4 record after the mid-way point in a terrible season.

After the 40-24 loss to the LSU Tigers you can count on there being more than just a few things which jump out to Ole Miss football fans. It’s never easy getting a loss and it’s even worse when it comes to your rival. The LSU Tigers came into Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and literally ran away with a huge SEC win over the Rebels.

Of course, a loss is a loss. It’s never pretty to look at and even worse to talk about. In the loss to LSU there are some obvious issues which jump right out at us. For some of us these are things which we already knew coming into the game. For others the plight of Ole Miss football may indeed be a learning experience. Here are a few things which we learned last night.
