Yes, Ryan Buchanan came into Ole Miss’ spring game ahead of Chad Kelly and DeVante Kincade. Yes, it was only by a little bit — “so minute” and “so far from it being over” is what coach Hugh Freeze said.But Freeze did say it, apparently first to ESPN on Friday and then again on Saturday after the Grove Bowl. And that has to mean something, because otherwise why say it? I even prefaced the question with, “I know you don’t want to name a leader or anything.” And then Freeze did. Who knew?So let’s say the quarterback competition will rage on into August and maybe September, because that’s what is going to happen. And it may be that Buchanan is not even in the lead anymore — he was 5-of-16 for 49 yards and an interception in the scrimmage; Kelly (9-19, 104 yards, 1-1 TD-INT) didn’t exactly anoint himself with his play, and had the better offensive line, but he was still a bit better. But I’ve still seen and heard enough to say this: Buchanan should be Ole Miss’ starting quarterback in the fall. At least if I’m Freeze, that’s what I’m doing.There are four future NFL first-round picks entering their junior, and probably last, seasons in Oxford. The defense returns a lot of pieces from a 2014 group that allowed fewer points than anyone else in the country. The wide receiver group is deep, and strong. Everything in Oxford says win now, and that whoever replaces Bo Wallace is being handed the keys to a sports car (those were Wallace’s words, at the Peach Bowl).So if you’re Freeze do you go with Kelly, who may be able to run that car to a higher speed but could also just as easily run it off the road? Or do you go with Buchanan, who has been nothing but solid and steady in 21/2 years on campus and will do every single thing you ask of him?Give me the latter, and not just because Buchanan would be the local kid (Jackson Prep) starting at the Southeastern Conference school he’s been cheering for since he was in Pampers.Ole Miss does not need to take a massive risk at the quarterback position, which Kelly is — it was only a year ago that he was yelling at his Clemson coaches during the spring game, and in December he was getting arrested less than a week after Ole Miss gave him a second chance at college football. Freeze talked at length Saturday about guys making the right decisions during the offseason and that he worries all about 120 of them — but also acknowledged you worry more about some of them.That’s not Buchanan. You start Buchanan because he’s the guy that understands the job is about more than touchdown passes. It’s about leadership, and Buchanan is the guy that makes sure to touch hands and connect with every guy on the offense whether they’re Laquon Treadwell or a walkon.“The bottom line is Bo is not here, so they’re looking to find a guy,” Buchanan said. “So when we get into the huddle before we go out to start a drive, I’m always trying to motivate. … And on the offensive line, there are so many guys that are hurt and so we’re playing younger guys and those guys I’m actually older than them now.“It wasn’t too hard, you just had to take it upon yourself.”Buchanan just gets it, which you cannot teach. So give him the keys, and see what he can do with the thing.
