Caption: MCALLISTER’S $1 MILLION GIFT: Mississippi football coach David Cutcliffe applauds former Rebel and current New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister during a news conference at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, MS. McAllister donated $1 million to the University of Mississippi toward construction of an indoor practice facility. “I think it really brings the university up to par with elite schools,” said the former college football standout. “Now you can’t say that Ole Miss doesn’t have an indoor facility.” The $18 million, 150,000-square-foot multiuse enclosure is slated to open this fall; it has not yet been named. McAllister, 25, was drafted by the Saints in 2001.
