Donte Moncrief isn’t concerned about Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace’s surgically repaired right shoulder.
Thrilled might be the better term.
“I see an arm that’s gotten stronger,” said Moncrief, who led the Rebels in catches and receiving yards last season. “The fade routes look good. The dig routes look good. He’s got more power with his arm and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with it in games.”
Most of the recent news about Mississippi’s football program relates to the surprising and star-studded recruiting class Hugh Freeze landed in February.
The second-year coach is excited about bringing in that new talent. But for the next month, he’s focused on improving what he already has on the roster as the Rebels go through spring practice.
Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace was not impressed and he certainly wasn’t satisfied.
“I really can’t be, to tell you the truth,” said Wallace, despite throwing for three touchdowns and running for another to lead the Rebels to a 28-10 win over Texas-El Paso Saturday. “I thought I played well for the first half, but I was sloppy in the second half.”
Central Arkansas couldn’t have scripted a much better first half during Saturday’s game against Mississippi.
The second half was exactly the opposite.
And the end result was a 49-27 loss at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium that left Central Arkansas coach Clint Conque disappointed after a missed opportunity.
