FAYETTEVILLE–Bobby Allen has a better understanding of Ole Miss’ Wild Rebel formation than most opposing defensive coaches.
Of course, when he was on Houston Nutt’s coaching staff at Arkansas, the formation was known first as the Wildcat and then later as the WildHog.
For two years, Allen watched in practice as former Arkansas running back Darren McFadden would line up at quarterback, take the snap and run or throw the football.
Since then, the name of the formation has changed and Nutt has left to coach Ole Miss. But Allen still remembers how to defend against the play.
