It sounds like Barney Farrar may be shaping up as Ole Miss’ Wilmer Cook.

    It’s funny how all-knowing, micromanaging, self-proclaimed genius (or at least smarter than you anyway) HC’s/AD’s/Presidents suddenly become totally dumb and aloof when negative issues arise concerning their program — in which, by golly…we had absolutely no clue about any of that illegal NCAA stuff you’re referring to. One of our misguided underlings must have done it instead!

    College presidents and AD’s never are punished; the same goes for HC’s as well because, after all, they can merely leave for greener pastures elsewhere and let the school deal with looming probation. Freeze has had fingerprints on all aspects of the program, yet now we’re supposed to believe some asst. AD caused all the infractions without telling anyone else or without anyone knowing. Right.

      Amen. Like micromanaging Rick Pitino had no idea about the hookers at recruiting parties taking place in the dorm.

    The NCAA and most of the public have been repulsed by Hugh Freeze since Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw adopted a black kid.

    “An attorney representing one of the principles in the NCAA’s investigation of Ole Miss told an Evansville, Ind. TV station the allegations against the school are “as close to the death penalty as you can get without having that actually happen.”

    Double secret probation, sir?

    “Well, Barney, I’m sorry indeed to lose you, and I want you to know that I couldn’t be any fonder of you if you were my own son; but, if you lose a son, it’s possible to get another – and there’s only one Hugh Freeze.”

    News flash, the money generated by college football has granted immortality to all programs fortunate enough to pull in sufficient revenue.

    The longer this goes on the less likely there will be any severe consequences. I think Ole Miss comes out of this thing smelling pretty good.
