One thing Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace is not short on is confidence. The 6-foot-4, 209-pound junior revealed as much when he spoke about his team’s upcoming game against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Wallace’s assessment? The Rebels and their up-tempo offense can score on ‘Bama. Heck, they can score on anybody.
(Yeah…easier said than done.)
We can put points on them. I think we can put points on anybody. We just got to show up and play and it’s the same thing every week: Let’s stay on schedule and control the tempo and don’t have any turnovers.
We have better receivers than A&M. They want to talk about Mike Evans being so good; well, we have Donte (Moncrief) and I think Laquon (Treadwell) is going to be that way. I think we have better players on the outside than A&M does (USA Today Sports).
(While it’s debatable that Ole Miss has better receivers than Texas A&M, one thing that isn’t up for debate is the ability of Johnny Manziel compared to that of Bo Wallace. A receiver is only as good as the guy throwing him the ball, and Wallace will have to play the game of his life if his Rebels are going to escape Bryant-Denny Stadium with a win.)
While the Alabama defense certainly hasn’t been overwhelmingly dominate this year, there’s a big gap between saying your team can score on the best team in the country and actually doing it. We’ll see if Wallace can back up his talk on Saturday. The game will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on ESPN.
