Discipline, Matt Luke, and Shea Patterson some of the topics at Ole Miss Media Day

OXFORD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ole Miss held their annual Media Day on Wednesday afternoon. Interim head coach Matt Luke started by addressing the arrests of Ken Webster and Detric Bing-Dukes. Both players are suspended for the season opener and will complete community service.

"All I can do is do what's best for the team right now. I felt like after gathering all the information that we have, that to make sure we send a clear concise message is that if there are certain lines that are crossed, then there's going to be a consequence to be paid. Felt like that was the best thing to do for this team. We still love them, we still care about them. I think they're both great kids that made a bad mistake."

Luke reiterated his stance on wanting the job permanently at his alma mater. Offensive coordinator Phil Longo praised sophomore QB Shea Patterson before fall camp.
