Phoning it in

Mark Richt’s football cuddle wasn’t the most surrealistic moment of the day yesterday.  Hands down that would have to go to Hugh Freeze, who chose to coach his Liberty team from a hospital bed.

That’s the look of a man whose afraid he’s gonna be wally pipped if he doesn’t show up for work.

This was… inspirational, I suppose.

Or maybe it was just a thank you for coaching his team to a shutout.

I’ll take “Get a burner phone” for $200, Alex.

Over at The Athletic, Hugh Freeze is asked ($$) the musical question “Is there anything you wish you’d done differently at Ole Miss that you take into this job?“.

(No, that wasn’t part of his answer, sadly.)

“In a way it’s just a piece of paper because you saw those games.”

My first instinct is to say there’s no lamer NCAA penalty than vacating wins, except then I remember the way Bobby Bowden bitched about it.  So maybe there’s more to it than meets the eye.  Maybe.

I only bring this up in light of yesterday’s news that Ole Miss has to vacate a total of 33 wins over six seasons, including Georgia’s horrendous loss in Kirby’s first season.

That, in turn, leads me to ask what the official GTP policy for referring to that game should be going forward.  I think it’s only fair to let the people decide, so, without any further adieu, here comes today’s reader poll.

Further suggestions are, of course, welcomed.

You knew this was coming.

Today, in America is a great country, comes this heartwarming story of a man who’s learned his lesson so completely that he’s able to skip past the Alabama analyst stage and go straight to coaching again:

After Hugh Freeze and Rich Rodriguez were recently awarded second chances in their coaching careers, Southern Miss may be on the verge of giving Art Briles his.

The former Baylor football head coach is on the Hattiesburg campus to interview for USM’s vacant offensive coordinator position, a source has confirmed to the Sun Herald.

Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies all over?

He’s got your number.

You know, I have to admit I’m mildly impressed with the clever header to this article.  Either that, or it’s a helluva Freudian slip.

Lede of the day

Let me just say starting an article about the Hugh Freeze hiring with “Hugh Freeze turned on his cellphone last week after one of his many flights landed and saw a text message…” is about as inspired as it gets.

Well played, .  Well played, indeed.

A marriage made in heaven

This is what Gawd’s will looks like, I guess.

How long will this particular redemption tour last, I wonder.  Not exactly like working as Nick Saban’s intern…


UPDATE:  Someone has a weird way of winning the presser.

Although I have to admit “handle my junk” has some real potential as a GTP catchphrase.
