Default Hodge, McCluster carry Rebels

Hodge, McCluster carry Rebels
David Brandt • david.brandt@clarionledger.com • January 2, 2010


As Shay Hodge caught a few touchdown passes during practice at palatial Cowboys Stadium, which is usually home to NFL games, the Ole Miss receiver admitted he had a few visions of making the same plays at the professional level.

"You just can't help it," Hodge said. "I think everybody let their mind wander a few times. It's a player's dream."

And for Hodge and fellow playmaker Dexter McCluster, there's little doubt that both seniors will get some sort of opportunity at the NFL level in the coming months. Both have accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl, which is a haven for professional prospects.

But one more time at Cowboys Stadium, two of the greatest playmakers to ever come through Oxford will make their final appearance in an Ole Miss uniform today as the Rebels face No. 21 Oklahoma State at 1 p.m. in the 74th AT&T Cotton Bowl.

The game will be televised on Fox.

"It's going to be one more chance to go out there and give it everything I have," McCluster said. "That's all you can ask."

The statistics alone have been amazing.

Hodge has caught 63 passes for 1,023 yards and eight touchdowns. He's the first 1,000-yard receiver in school history and is the Southeastern Conference's active career leader with 2,534 receiving yards.

Then there's McCluster, who despite playing running back for only half the season has rushed for 985 yards and six touchdowns. He's also caught 39 passes for 475 yards and three touchdowns. His 3,694 career all-purpose yards ranks second in Ole Miss history.

But numbers can't capture just how much Ole Miss has relied on the duo.

Not only are they the two best playmakers on the field, they're probably the two best students of the game off of it.

All year long, McCluster has been asked to be a running back, receiver and occasionally the quarterback. For many, it would have been an impossible task.

But McCluster barely blinked. Eluding would-be tacklers and digesting prodigious amounts of the playbook are equally easy for the 5-foot-9, 170-pound star.

"Physically, he's a pure playmaker," UM offensive coordinator Kent Austin said. "That's just what he does. But he's a coach's dream because he's so easy to coach. He can take a concept off the whiteboard in a meeting the very first time, see it visually and then go out and execute it. In one or two reps he's got it. There's not many guys like that."

When the coaches moved McCluster to running back, that meant Hodge was the only experienced receiver on the field. Opposing teams noticed immediately; Hodge was often subject to double teams and coverages designed just to stop him.

But Hodge's numbers never suffered, even though he might not be quite as blessed with the same ridiculous physical tools as McCluster.

"That's because Shay is such a football fanatic," McCluster said. "He watches the NFL all the time, but not for the game. He watches just to see what the receivers do. How they use their hands to get off the line of scrimmage and how they get open downfield. Then he takes the things he likes and uses them in games."

Hodge and McCluster were both afterthoughts in former coach Ed Orgeron's star-studded 2006 recruiting class. And it's true that the group has been one of the most productive in Ole Miss history - including linebacker Jonathan Cornell, running back Cordera Eason, defensive end Greg Hardy, offensive lineman John Jerry, defensive end Kentrell Lockett, defensive end Marcus Tillman, linebacker Allen Walker and defensive tackle Jerrell Powe - all of whom had at least four stars on a five-star scale according to Rivals.com.

Hodge was supposed to be too slow and McCluster was too fragile. But the pair of 3-star recruits are the ones who now find their names splashed all over the Ole Miss record books.

Even Hodge is a little surprised.

"I never saw this coming - being THE guy on the team at receiver," he said. "I wasn't supposed to be fast, but every year I grew as a player and made myself better."

Default OSU: 3 storylines

OSU: 3 storylines

A look at three things to watch in today’s OSU-Ole Miss Cotton Bowl contest. By Bill Haisten, World Sports Writer.


Perrish Cox
The Cowboy program was stunned on Friday when coach Mike Gundy announced that All-American cornerback Perrish Cox had been suspended and will not play against Ole Miss. The Rebels have an outstanding receiver in Shay Hodge, an All-SEC first-team selection. Cowboy senior corner Terrance Anderson likely will get the coverage assignment. Is anyone on the OSU roster capable of breaking the big returns that Cox provided both on punts and kickoffs?


Run defense
Against an Ole Miss team with a quality offensive line and a ball-carrier like Dexter McCluster, can OSU continue to play so well against the run? No opposing back has run for 100 yards this season. Eight opposing teams were held below the 100-yard mark in rushing. The Cowboys allow only 87.7 rushing yards per game. Unless Ole Miss has a huge ground-game performance, OSU will break the school record for rushing yards allowed. In 1982, the Leslie O'Neal Cowboys gave up only 99.2 rush yards per game.


Kendall Hunter
In advance of several games this season, there were signs and reports that Kendall Hunter might be ready for a breakout performance. It never happened. Since he sustained a serious foot injury on Sept. 12, Hunter has had the occasional nice carry but has not been the same game-changing back who last season averaged 6.5 yards and scored 16 TDs. In Cotton Bowl practices, however, he has looked like the old Hunter. If both Keith Toston and Hunter are effective on Saturday, OSU could get big yardage and control the clock.

Default Cotton Bowl story lines

Cotton Bowl story lines
By Scott Cacciola
Posted January 2, 2010 at midnight


Good Snead is what Rebels need

When Ole Miss quarterback Jevan Snead is good, he can be really good. And when he is bad, he can be terrible. Like the team, Snead approached the season with huge expectations but has largely failed to live up to the hype. A junior, he has thrown more interceptions (17) than he did as a sophomore (13), and his completion percentage has dipped from .563 to .543. The Rebels need him to play mistake-free football.

"When he is focused, when he is in tune, he can be one of the best quarterbacks in the country," coach Houston Nutt said. "You don't have to be Superman. Just distribute the ball to your teammates, manage the game, take care of the ball. When he does that, he's a good quarterback."

Hardy returns

Ole Miss senior defensive end Greg Hardy has been practicing with the team and seems prepared to make an impact. He was sidelined for the last four games of the regular season after undergoing left wrist surgery. When healthy and motivated, the former Briarcrest star can be a dominating force. He could come in handy against the Cowboys' spread-option offense.

"He's looking fine," defensive end Kentrell Lockett said before the team left for Dallas. "He's just got to get it out of his head that 'I'm injured.' Once he gets that out of his mind, he'll be fine."

Just give him the darn ball

Dexter McCluster emerged as one of the most dynamic players in the country over the second half of the season, a do-everything tailback for Ole Miss who could be primed for another scintillating performance thanks to some fresh legs. Named first-team All-SEC as an all-purpose player and second-team as a running back, McCluster ranks fifth in the conference in rushing with 82.1 yards per game and eighth in all-purpose yards with 124 per game. With 15 rushing yards and 25 receiving yards against Oklahoma State, McCluster would become just the fifth player in SEC history to finish with 1,000 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards in a season.

A case for the defense

Heading into the annual Egg Bowl against Mississippi State on Nov. 28, Ole Miss' defense had been the team's strength. The Rebels had limited opponents to 124.2 rushing yards per game and 16.5 points per game. Then the Bulldogs ran all over the Rebels en route to a shocking 41-27 victory.

MSU rushed for 317 yards, and Ole Miss knows that Oklahoma State will present similar challenges. The Cowboys, who have led the Big 12 in rushing the past four seasons, prefer to keep the ball on the ground. Running back Keith Toston has rushed for 1,117 yards and 11 touchdowns, and quarterback Zac Robinson (296 rushing yards, four touchdowns) is mobile.
