Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt has called out quarterback Jevan Snead, challenging the Texas transfer to up his game.
Snead had a problem earlier in the season with working so hard to force plays, to make something when it really wasn’t there, that he may be going the other direction right now and being hesitant when opportunities really are there.
He’s started slowly the last two weeks, but in both games, wins against Arkansas and Auburn, he’s corrected himself in time to make big throws at big times.
Consistency from Snead will go a long way in helping Ole Miss close out some games earlier.
Snead at half production is still an upgrade from recent quarterback play, but his potential greater than what he’s shown lately. The Wake Forest game with four touchdowns and only one interception against a very experienced defense comes to mind.
Snead is a worker, a guy who takes his leadership role seriously. His personality and ability are a good mix, and combined they’re what will help him develop into a very good quarterback.
