Ole Miss fans have not had the season many envisioned.
The Rebels have dropped two in a row and sit at 3-4 on the season. There have been a lot of people wondering what’s wrong with this Ole Miss team, one that won 10 games just last season.
ESPN analyst Tom Luginbill has an answer. And he puts it on the locker room and the lack of leadership.
“On the day I saw Ole Miss, when they dismantled Georgia that was not a 3-4 team on the field,” Luginbill said on the Paul Finebaum show. “Athletically I see what I see, which leads me to believe how good of a team this is in the locker room. Their leadership, their personalities. How investments they in the program instead of their individual well being.
“There’s something wrong with that locker room dynamic. The talent level should not be performing to the level that it is,” Luginbill said.
Luginbill, who is also heavily involved with ESPN’s recruiting services was the sideline analyst for Ole Miss’ 45-14 win over Georgia earlier in the season. The analyst also said he thought Auburn’s season was improving was because of the leadership in its locker room.
The Rebels host the Tigers, who have won four consecutive games. The game is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. ET on the SEC Network on Saturday.
