HOOVER, Ala. - Bo Wallace's career passing numbers are drastically higher than any other returning quarterback in the Southeastern Conference.

Yet on Thursday, Mississippi's senior learned the media had selected him for the All-SEC preseason third team, putting Auburn's Nick Marshall on the first team and Mississippi State's Dak Prescott on the second team.

He wasn't happy about it.

Wallace says the perceived slight "adds another chip on my shoulder that I play with anyway." Mississippi has 15 starters returning, including nine on defense, from a team that finished 8-5 last season.

Now third-year coach Hugh Freeze says he expects the Rebels to be "very relevant in the SEC West." Ole Miss has never been to the SEC championship game since the league split to two divisions in 1992.
