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.

Bundoran turn the tide on Termon with last gasp win

first_imgAn Alan Russell point in the third minute of injury time saw Bundoran pip Termon in the opening fixture Group D of the Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure Donegal SFC, writes Alan FoleyTermon           0-11 Bundoran           0-12Following a match of fine margins, the Seasiders have taken a huge step towards a last eight berth for the second year in succession by virtue of their narrow success – and they can also tip their caps to goalkeeper Conor Carty, who made a one-on-one save to deny substitute Anthony Grant a goal that would’ve put Termon two in front in injury time. Although Enda McCormick levelled the scores at 0-11 apiece from the resultant 45, it was Russell who would have the last word as he scored what proved to be the decisive point as he turned.The excellence of McCormick was the main reason that Termon went in at half-time a point to the good, 0-7 to 0-6 in front with their wing-forward having kicked five points – three of which came from play. He would score nine in all.However, with Bundoran having faced into the wind in that first half, their manager Niall Dunne wouldn’t have been overly disappointed with a one-point deficit. Michael McEniff popped over their last score of that period and might’ve added a goal right on the stroke of half-time only to drive inches wide of Michael Boyle’s goal from a pass by Timmy Govorov.It was McCormick’s brace that opened the scoring for Termon, although Alan Russell and then Govorov levelled it for the visitors by the eighth minute. Two more Termon scores – through Caolan McDaid and Shaun O’Donnell restored a two-point cushion at 0-4 to 0-2 for the hosts. Govorov was in fine form, managing to kick two more points and when Gary Clancy was on the mark on 18 minutes, Bundoran, at 0-5 to 0-4, were in front for the first time. The lead was flittering over and back and it was McCormick’s fifth that meant Termon were in front at the break.Termon, who face Malin away next weekend, would have seen a chance of a quarter-final on the horizon prior to their matchday three outing against Division 1 chapions Kilcar. Daire McDaid was a key absentee today with a hamstring injury sustained at training on Thursday evening and Shane Doherty was suspended following his dismissal against Four Masters last season.Bundoran were without Ciaran McCaughey – a sizable facet at centre-field – and knew to gain a victory on the road would’ve been looking to Jamie Brennan, who was held scoreless in the first half by Oisin Cassidy.Three points at the start of the second half settled Bundoran and established a 0-9 to 0-7 lead, with Clancy scoring twice and Jamie Brennan registering on 36 minutes.Termon still carried a threat but their inability to score a goal would prove costly. The closest they came was when Aidan Sweeney, on receipt of a give-and-go with Steve McElwaine, got in on 39 minutes and having rounded Carty seemed certain to score only for Paul Murphy to make a massively important block on the line. At the other end, Bundoran almost fashioned a goal when Russell and Jamie Brennan linked up but the latter’s pass across Termon goalkeeper Boyle’s square was intercepted in the nick of time by Barry Gallagher to preserve a 0-9 to 0-7 lead.Paul Brennan, the locals would’ve felt, might’ve been lucky to stay on their field after a late challenge on Sweeney with match referee Seamus McGonagle opting for yellow.Two more McCormick points made tied it up at 0-9 each with 10 to go and although Russell put Bundoran ahead again, McCormick equalled things again.McEniff, some three minutes from time, punched Bundoran 0-11 to 0-10 ahead, but there was still a chapter to be written in injury time.
