I’m not going to get into the sincerity of the opening round of Hugh Freeze’s redemption tour, but, man, this quote:
“I have a total new appreciation for integrity,” Freeze said.
That’s some moral high horse you rode in on in Oxford, stud.
Filed under Freeze!, It's All Just Made Up And Flagellant
I know I’m going to get destroyed for saying this here. From the beginning of this mess I’ve thought that Freeze is probably a person with a great heart that ended up going down a dark road. I’m sure he is going through a personal hell. I actually hope he comes out the other side of this debacle and does find redemption and success again.
Or he is like Petrino and has no morals but knows how to fake it.

Bingo. Guilty dogs always bark.
Or, those burner phones and hookers just threw themselves at him. LOL!
Freeze and Liberty U – a perfect pair.
I’m with the other doug on this one – dude is a total phony, and has been for years. Remember, there are all sorts of rumors about him going way back to his days at that private HS in Memphis, so its not like he just lost his way after achieving fame/fortune at Ole Miss. And the fact that he was so in your face about faith, morals, etc. makes everything even worse.
The guy rubbed me the wrong way from the very beginning, though i could never quite put my finger on as to why.
“Yes,” I said. “Isn’t it pretty to think so?”
I applaud your faith in the human heart but I agree with the other posters that real contrition does not typically go on a speaking tour.
I’d like Hugh to read this speech in front of booster clubs across the south.
I can’t know his heart, but I do hope that he means what he says. What I do know for sure is that no one is beyond redemption.
I don’t care for Hugh Freeze or Liberty University
He sounds like the next head coach at Auburn. 😁
More sanctimonious bullshit from Sleeze.
What a damn phony POS. People like this are only sorry and ask forgiveness after they get caught.
The publicly pious do love a good redemption story, as long as the sinner is male, the hooker/porn star/side piece is female, and both are white…
Has he also asked forgiveness for what happened with Tunsil? I feel for his wife and family. Real repentance does not happen on the paid speaking tour. I believe in redemption but don’t believe this is what is going on.
Has to be my fave version of the header….
I actually want to believe in the decent person / dark road theory. But I am from Memphis and had tons of high school friends from briarcrest during his days there. The majority of opinions coming from those who had him as high school students are negative, and were before any of this even existed. Many of these people are also Ole Miss grads and I know of one briarcrest/ole miss grad who went as far as disowning rebel football because of Freeze’s presence at the helm. Just relaying what I heard.
This one is on the NCAA and our society. Following quote says my opinion on Freeze and many other leaders: “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” Albert Einstein
Back in the day I was a backsliding baptist. The Pastor and Assistant Pastor were bad to show up unexpectedly at my abode, and much to their chagrin I would often be caught red-handed with a cold beer (Of course I always offered to share) and word got around that Ol’ Cowdog wasn’t quite first pew Baptist potential. Long story short, we parted ways and not on the best terms. I always felt a little guilty about it. Other things came to light down the road, and I sort of felt vindicated even though that is close to taking pleasure in other’s misfortune and I try to avoid that outside of college football.
The moral of this story? A couple of pious assholes made me feel like less than I was and turned out to be even bigger fuck-ups than me.
I have no use for small minded zealots. People like Hugh Freeze and his TV preacher ilk who use fear and guilt to manipulate others are no different than common thugs. They merely use a softer club.
I’ll go sit down now.

I can appreciate a million bucks, don’t mean I have it.
