“Happenstance”

You are supposed to believe that Hugh Freeze and a booster who “allegedly gave a recruit cash and free food at his Oxford, Miss., restaurant [and] called each other at least 200 times between January 2015 and the end of Freeze’s tenure last month” just happened to meet at church after the alleged violations occurred, formed a friendship, yet never discussed the NCAA case.

Sounds credible to me.

        Flowers spoke at my HS senior football banquet….LMAO, never laughed so hard in my entire life. I believe he also played at Mississippi Southern or MIssissipi State. Maybe that is why your link reminded me of him (Stevens). That and the humor.

        Speaking of Jerry Clower and football, my late father told me about meeting Jerry Clower once at the airport by happenstance. He said Mr. Clower acted the exact same with a crowd of five people at the airport as he did onstage. Somebody asked him what Ole Miss needed to do about its football program. (This was the ’60s when Ole Miss was reluctant to integrate its program.) Mr. Clower said that to be successful, Ole Miss needed to quit recruiting so many “academy boys” (and my father imitated Mr. Clower lisping effeminately as he said the phrase) and get “some of these hosses like the other schools are gettin’.”

        Saw him at the Sunbelt Expo when I was a kid in 1983. He was performing for the Case-International exhibit. You had to sit through about a 15 min tractor demonstration before Jerry came on. The emcee bragged about being from Missouri, and how the Tigers were going to shock the world and beat that incredible Nebraska team on Saturday. When Jerry took the stage, he looked at the emcee and said “Son, Missouri couldn’t beat Valdosta High School”.

          I was there. It was a nice surprise as I had no idea he would be there. My family has enjoyed repeating the Clower stories for years. Timeless they are.

          I used to enjoy those Expos. I was at that one (worked at the RDC in Tifton then) but missed Clower.

    W. G. Watkins can state “categorically” that Hugh and the booster never talked because Hugh is isolated by NCAA rules. Yeah, I think he may have a case there because Hugh is well known for following NCAA rules to the letter. 😉

  3. Amazing to me, again and again, isn’t there someone at Ole Miss, who knew a damn thing, about all of this and tried to correct something. Obviously not. Talk about being in the same bed with Baylor, for just plain sheer lunacy.

    Ole Miss can change their mascot again to the “Burnt Bears”. If the NCAA doesn’t completely wimp out or give into political pressure from the Mississippi congressional delegation, I’m thinking it’s going to be gutted on scholarships and an additional year of bowl ban. Oh yea and Freeze is going to get some time off from college coaching with a show cause letter.

    200 calls? Nobody makes that many calls to one number in that time frame unless there is a woman on the other end. It may have been Harris’s number, but I’m betting the recipient was a cocktail waitress at the Funky Pizza and Daiquiri Bar.
