Countdown To Kickoff: 43 Days

Today's entry features former Ole Miss linebacker Kem Coleman. A 'backer for the Rebels from 1974-77, Coleman is second all-time in school history with 472 career stops. What is kind of interesting is that Coleman is second all-time in tackles, but only led his team in stops one season. To be fair, he did play along side a couple of guys named George Plasketes and Ben Williams.

If you have a suggestion for a favorite player, play or something a little more creative you would like to see featured in the countdown, leave a comment below or shoot me an e-mail at


  1. Kem was a great friend and player for years, lost touch with in the early 80's.

    1. Kem Coleman lives in Oxford, MS. He volunteers at the Food Pantry. I spoke to him there today. I met him a few years ago when he attended Oxford Church of Christ. He now attends a Presbyterian Church in Oxford.

  2. Kem was as much of a talent off the field as too, enough said. Plan on visiting him soon..
