Except this time it’s directed at Auburn… more specifically, at Auburn’s quarterbacks. Here’s what he mournfully told Finebaum, who must have had the mother of all erections listening to it: “Unless one of them stands up and becomes a man, and I haven’t seen it yet, I don’t think we stand a chance. Not against a good football team.”
But wait! There’s more where that came from.
“Mississippi did a smart thing when they went and got a junior college quarterback. He ain’t no great quarterback but he’s mature. He’s man enough to take the criticism that comes with the position. If you can’t take it, it makes a coward out of you. To me, that’s the problem we’ve got right now.”
Dye may say he’s standing behind Gene Chizik, but when you’re pointing to Ole Miss as a model to be followed, let’s just say it’s hardly a ringing endorsement.
