Jeez, Freeze.

I’m no fan of the man, but as cringeworthy as the comment is, I almost hope this is a misunderstanding.

Calloway told reporters during the Under Armour Combine Media Day earlier this week about how Freeze is describing the investigation with recruits.

Q: We’ve heard a lot about negative recruiting at Ole Miss with the NCAA thing going on, what has Ole Miss said to you about that?

“Well, Coach Freeze told me when you’re that big and out there with faith in Christ, he’s like, ‘What do you expect? Jesus got nailed to the cross.’ So, he was just telling me sometimes things like that happen, but that’s never going to change how he’s going to treat his players and take care of them. Even if — I don’t know if he really did make the mistake, doing what he did or not — but I can just tell he’s a good person, great person. I know they’re looking at maybe a bowl suspension [for 2017]. I don’t know what they’re gonna do. But I don’t think that’ll affect anything as far as how he treats his players and stuff like that.”

Oy.

Crucified by the NCAA?  Seriously?  Does that even sell on the recruiting trail?  If it were my kid and Hugh Freeze walked in the door saying that, I’d really wonder what was going on inside his head.

UPDATE:

So I guess the difference between Jesus and Hugh Freeze is that the former never had any trouble being understood.

  1. Fuck off Freeze with your religious victimization bullshit. You got ratted out by a recruit that you got under dubious circumstances on national television. That has nothing to do with what book you believe.

    So, freeze is basically saying to kids that he is God like and those of us that are God like get crucified sometimes so it’s ok, these things are normal. It’s the burden that comes with being a god.

    So Freeze is still going to take care of his kids as he has in the past? Hum, another interesting, but unintended, admission of what he is offering recruits.

    Unfortunately for Hugh, the analogy falls apart when you realize his recruiting classes were far from “begotten not made.”

      Nice ancient Church council reference. As my college religion professor would have said, “You are not far from the kingdom.”

    Jesus? He’s more like Jim Bakker or Creflo Dollar.

    If he compares himself to Jesus Christ, I wonder who he compares other coaches to? This man has lost it if this is true.
