OXFORD, Miss. – A blister on Bo Wallace’s throwing finger kept him out of practice on Tuesday, but it gave head coach Hugh Freeze more looks at Barry Brunetti and Maikhail Miller on the practice fields adjacent to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Freeze said Tuesday was a challenging practice due to the physical grind of the second week of fall camp.
“The second week at every camp I’ve ever been to is the most difficult week,” said the Rebels’ first-year coach. “Everybody’s bodies are extremely sore. Fatigue has set in, but we’re not the only ones going through it.”
Miller, a freshman by way of Fulton, Miss., has been running third-string quarterback for the Rebels. He received praise from the head coach after his increased reps on Tuesday.
“Maikhail’s getting better and better,” Freeze said. “He’s got a strong arm. He’s very accurate. Still doesn’t know what’s going on, but I think he’s getting a lot better.
