Rebel Scrimmage Brings Out Competition

March 23, 2000

OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss head football coach David Cutcliffe appeared
pleased after Thursday’s scrimmage held in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, which
marked the 11th practice of spring drills.

“I’m really anxious to see the tape,” Cutcliffe said. “You always have
ups and downs, but I thought there was more competition between the offense
and defense. We also got in some good practice work before the scrimmage.”

Highlights from the scrimmage included a 10-yard pass interception
return for a touchdown by defensive end Derrick Burgess, a 45-yard TD run by
Deuce McAllister, and a 55-yard touchdown strike from Romaro Miller to L. J.

The Rebels, who will work again on Saturday, have four practices
remaining, including the April 1 Grove Bowl. Both practices next week
leading up to the spring game will be closed to the public.
