With “Interim” now nixed from Luke’s job title, he has been busy tweaking the SEC’s second-best offense from 2017. QB Jordan Ta’amu showed his passing prowess last season and is expected to improve even more in 2018. Backup freshman QB Matt Corral should be able to carry the load should Ta’amu have to leave the field. The receiving corps brings back four out of five main targets, led by A.J. Brown, an All-SEC selection. The backfield returns two experienced juniors, D’Vaughn Pennamon and Eric Swinney, both of whom have the size and strength to pound through defenses. Greg Little anchors an offensive line that brings back four starters from last season. This offense should be fun to watch in 2018 while averaging over 400 yards of production in each game.

The biggest challenge for 2018 is revamping a defense that previously finished last in the SEC, allowing averages of 35 points and over 450 yards of total offense per game. Defensive coordinator Wesley McGriff will have his hands full developing schemes and replacing personnel on a defense that first needs to stop being a doormat to opposing running backs. Although seven starters return, they were not exactly impact players last season. Look for many new names who either start or rotate in at all positions. Overall, Ole Miss should be explosive and fun to watch on offense each game. Given the state of the defense, it will be a good season if they finish in the middle of the pack of yards allowed per game. Expect a 7-win team.
