NCAA FOOTBALL: DEC 30 Music City Bowl - Georgia Tech v Ole Miss

Hugh Freeze Stakes Claim As The Best Coach In Mississippi History

In his three years at Ole Miss, Coach Hugh Freeze has amassed 24 wins, increasing his win total each year resulting in a 9 win season in 2014.  His 24 wins put Coach Freeze in some rare company in the State of Mississippi and in the SEC.

In fact, since World War II no one has been able to match Hugh Freeze’s three year win total in this State. Famed Ole Miss Coach Johnny Vaught started at Ole Miss with a bang in 1947 and won 17 games in his first two seasons, but a rebuilding year in 1949 resulted in only 4 wins.

Houston Nutt came to Ole Miss with a wealth of talent on the roster and won 9 games each of his first two years in ’08 and ’09 but had a disaster of a season in 2010 with only four wins.

David Cutcliffe had some good talent on his teams thanks to Tuberville and amassed 22 total wins from ’99 to ’01 and Billy Brewer won 15 from ’83 to ’85.

Going back through the annuals of Ole Miss history, the only Ole Miss coach with more than 24 wins in three years was Harry Mehre who won 25 from 1938 to 1940.

Coach Mehre played his college ball at Notre Dame from  1919-1922, then coached at Georgia for 10 years from 1928-1937 before moving over to Oxford.

Mentioning Freeze’s name along with Johnny Vaught and other legendary head coaches may raise some eyebrows, but also consider that Vaught averaged 7.6 wins per year over his 25 year career.  Freeze is at an even 8 win average so far.

What is even more impressive in Hugh Freeze’s three year record is the state of the program when he took over.  Freeze did not have multiple future NFL players on the roster as when Coach Nutt took over in 2008.  Freeze inherited a team with low morale, over 20 kids at risk of failing out of school and no real glimpse of daylight for the fans.

Freeze entered Ole Miss with personal expectations that it might take a few years to get the program back on track.  But after back-to-back bowls in his first two seasons, Freeze’s off season narrative changed to try to tamper fans’ expectations.

At the Regions’ pro-am golf tournament last May, Freeze responded to the topic of being ahead of schedule.  He stated, “Actually way ahead for me.  Some fans might not say that.  I kind of thought year 3 we would be fighting to get to a bowl game,” he said. “Having gone to two and won two, I think we’re ahead of schedule.”1

He made it well known to the fan base and to the media that they were not quite ready for SEC championships.  His honesty plus nine wins this year has further engendered him to the Ole Miss fan base.
Athletic director Ross Bjork rewarded Freeze this year with a big salary increase to reflect his win total by making him the 4th highest paid coach in the SEC with over $4 million per year.

It was once thought that Ole Miss was a stepping stone school.  A place where young coaches come to prove themselves and move on, or old coaches come to retire.

That is no longer the case.

With the recent success on the field, a current $150 million building campaign along with the existing facilities, Ole Miss is becoming a school that can legitimately compete for titles again.

It has been over 50 years since Ole Miss has won the SEC, but with the unique qualities of Hugh Freeze at the helm, Ole Miss is back in the national spotlight again


My thoughts/Apologies/FinsUpAP

For the last couple of days I have sat back and watched what I always thought was true in the back of my head, which is Analesa Presley was too good to be true.  My jaw dropped when I saw everything but at the same time didn’t surprise me. At this point I feel that I need to speak my peace and move on with things. But first, what I say on here you will have to choose to believe it or not. That is up to you.

First and foremost, I want to public apologize to a few twitter handles (people if you will) for my actions over the past couple of years. BeastmanSteve, Dawgsmack, CopiahDawg, Flabloser, Steve Robertson, MSU2417, Coach 34 and especially Lumbararthritis. I am sure there are others I may have left off and I do apologize for that as well.

The reason I always took up for her was I thought it was who she said she was. As Acey has told in his write up, we all took it at face value from phone conversation with her.  I, like Acey, was not going to spend time driving three hours to try and track her down. I took up for her because I don’t think people should be bullied. I am sure you’ll say I did some bullying as well (I’ll get to that in a second). I always believed in ribbing people and having fun with the rivals of MSU/UM but never liked bullying.

Now I as far as me bulling, let me set the record straight on that; particularly with Lumbararthritis. I NEVER sought out your information, called your work, and harassed your family. Yes I was shown your information by AP but I did not investigate whom you were/are/worked/etc.  I may have made comments that were over the top a couple of years ago trying “protect”, what I thought, was a friend at the time. Again I do humbly apologize publicly for that. As far as Copiahdawg and the whole “followed you on twitter and unfollowed you to get your information” that was all a fallacy and something you can’t even do. As far as I know following anonymous people on twitter doesn’t give you personally information of someone you do not know.

Closing my account on Tuesday had nothing to do with the outing of AP at the end of the week. Mine was merely because I had done to me what AP did to Lumbararthritis by fauxwallace.  I cannot understand for the life of me how making a wise crack about Dak Prescott potentially being drunk in PCB warranted putting my personal work information on there and going to my boss. But again, I get it, everyone though I tracked down information on Lumbar so they thought it was fair game.  As far people saying I used my job and company software to seek out people is farther from the truth. You people do not matter to me that much to jeopardize my family’s livelihood just to find out some anonymous account.

What I know about AP, is nothing more than what y’all know. I did not in any way make up or run that account.  I did talk with her on the phone and she would call me crying about being bullied but that was the extent of what I know about her. She always gave me the same stories as she did anyone else. She was from Fulton/Tremont area, lived in Ohio for a year, came back home and attended college.  That is all I knew and cared to know, again I am not tracking down a person.

Some of you want to compare time frames of when RebelAP, RebelAGP or FinsupAP came into existence which was around the time MIRS was made, this is far from correct. The original handle was analesapresley, princess Presley or princessap happened to chime in on a conversation about Ole Miss in the fall of 2011 I believe. Acey, Jake and I didn’t come up with MIRS till a year later. Now the princes Presley or whatever handle disappeared for a while and came back as one of those RebelAp thereafter. MIRS was already formed by that time.  Again, WE didn’t have anything to do with the creation or running of the AP account.

I, like everyone else, would like to know who she really is. Will we ever find out, who knows? Would it even help if you knew who it was? What would you do if that person did apologize? Would you continually bully her or let it go?  All I can do at this point is apologize for my actions over the years for being duped/lied to/tricked and move on with life.

FinsupAP: The “Fake” MIRS Princess

I was tricked, duped, lied-to and all the rest.

Let me first say, I don’t have to know you on twitter to talk to you.  The world of twitter is very anonymous by nature.  You can have a picture of a dog or a cat, you can even pretend to tweet from your dog or cat.  Some of you do that and have a huge following and make a lot of money from advertisers.

So if you are on twitter, you just have to understand that “fake” accounts are everywhere.  Some people have fake accounts so they can tweet about their boss, anonymously.  Some so they can talk sports smack, some so they can just talk freely without any judgement.

It is probably a great outlet to just get your thoughts out there for the world to see.  Maybe get some recognition or whatever drives your ego.

Make It Rain Sports was started in the summer of 2012.  Jake Wimberly and I are high school buds and from opposite spectrums of the Mississippi college sports world.  We talk sports all the time anyway, so we thought, why not put some of this stuff down on paper, maybe do a podcast of our foolishness.  We enjoyed doing it anyway.

We started up a twitter account and a website and we were off and rolling.  Just having fun.

At the time, fans were a lot like they are now, crazy and rabid about the Ole Miss – Mississippi State rivalry.

As we picked up followers on twitter and on the podcast we have made thousands of fans and friends through the show and our blog posts.  We are not professionals, we are just fans having fun.

One of the people that we ran across was a young girl named Analesa Presley.  Based on her musings about fingernail polish and Ole Miss sports we surmised she fit the mold of a typical recent high school graduate, getting ready to attend Ole Miss.  She was a cute young blonde of which there is an absolute army in Oxford.

As time went along, her interactions with Jake and I and our different producers Joe and Matthew continued, and we were actually impressed with her knowledge of sports.

We had a website and were trying to build readers and clicks so why not have a female perspective right?  Guys will love it! So, we got a couple of girls to write from time to time and one of them was Analesa.

She did a light hearted, funny take of college sports and guys ate it up, as I knew they would.  You guys are so predictable.  She coined herself “The MakeItRainSports Princess.”

As the attention on her grew, so did her anxiety about being in the spotlight.  She didn’t like so many people inquiring about her.  I thought she was just young and too immature to handle the attention.

I talked to this girl at least once a week during that period of almost a year, discussing article ideas, revisions and she was a guest on our podcast, twice. (Episode 1 —– Episode 2)

I never had a reason to doubt her.  First of all, It didn’t really matter to me if she was real or not.  Like I said, people do what they want on twitter.  If she is or is not a member of Elvis’ clan who am I to judge?

The only thing that made me pause and think twice was she never tried to visit with me or anyone else I knew in the Grove during Ole Miss pre-games.  But I am not trying to meet people off the internet anyway, especially girls 15+ years younger than me.

I did not require her to meet me or prove anything to me.  Let’s not make this internet thing any weirder than it is already.

But it did get weird.

As happens in an intense sports rivalry, there is a pack mentality.  If the pack senses weakness they attack faster and from all directions.

The more Analesa re-coiled from the hate and vitriol, the more Mississippi State fans chased her down.

She described to me the endless direct messages, the endless twitter mentions, the endless blog post comments saying terribly sexual and hurtful things to a young girl.  I saw them, it was and still is disgusting.  Grown men should have more pride than to act that way.

A lot of us defended her.  I defended her because I considered her one of my own.  One of the Ole Miss flock.  One of the “good” guys.

She was always nice to me and helped out my website and brand I was trying to create from scratch, so as far as I was concerned she was real and I was not going to let a bunch of “fake,” hateful MSU accounts attack her.

No one owes anything to you.  If you don’t like what someone says, don’t read it.  If you don’t like the color of someone’s jersey don’t look at it.  She, or whatever gender Analesa is, deserves the same privacy as any of us do.

But the social media drama continued to the point that she couldn’t take it anymore, she said she was being harassed in her classes at her junior college (She never said she attended Ole Miss) and she deleted every blog post she ever posted on the Make It Rain Sports site.

She eventually came back to social media, rather quickly I thought, but she was a little tougher and kept her guard up a little more.  She gave less personal information, less opportunities for comments from the “haters.”

Many people didn’t think she was real.  They said she had a noticeable lack of friends her age on facebook and twitter, no obvious high school friends; so sure, there were red flags.

She kept posting more photos, creating more social media accounts; Instagram, facebook, snapchat and the longer this charade went on the easier it was for me to accept.

This went on for almost three years, until yesterday.

Steve Robertson from MSU’s Scout page broke the news that there is a real girl that the photos actually belong too.  A girl that lives in Atlanta that had not given anyone authority to use her photos, least of all an Ole Miss fan account;  She is an Auburn fan.

In a flash, the social media accounts we all knew as Analesa Presley, disappeared.  Three years of me and other Ole Miss fans defending this person is over and I have to admit we all look pretty silly.

But that’s fine.  I have looked foolish before, I will do something foolish again.

The bigger question is if Analesa is not Analesa, who is that person?  It is still a young girl (from her voice on the phone) that is human and obviously has some real issues that need to be dealt with.

Hiding behind a fake name and fake twitter photo is not helping her deal with life and the embarrassment of being publicly shamed like this won’t help either.

Regardless of whom this person is; man, woman or child, I am still concerned about them as a person.  If you read this, please know that you don’t have to hide.  I would love to hear your side of the story.

Ole Miss at LSU: Do or Die?

Ole Miss is on the “back turn” of the SEC basketball season and despite having 19 wins, they still have some work to do to make sure they get that NCAA at-large bid.

Today the Rebels face the imaginary Tigers, native to the State of Louisiana, for a game that could very well be a “do-or-die” game.

It would give Ole Miss 9 top 100 RPI wins and a potential 5th top 50 RPI if LSU can finish strong.  A loss on the road to a quality LSU team is not devastating but with the home loss to Georgia, they are running out of time to impress the tournament committee.

Unlike Georgia, LSU has two quality scoring threats.  Forwards Jarell Martin and Jordan Mickey average 16.5 points per game, the same as Ole Miss’ Stefan Moody.

This team will put even more pressure on the Ole Miss front court who was beat up a little late against Georgia.

Ole Miss was within two points of Georgia with two minutes left to play when Georgia took it down low and had their way with the Rebels, eeking out a four point victory.

Granted Ole Miss had a cold night shooting and could easily overcome their offensive struggles in the paint by trading three pointers for two.

Can Ole Miss get hot early and win a game they “should” win?  We shall see soon!

Andy Kennedy made a passionate case for his team to step up their emotion after the team looked like they were going through the motions Wednesday night.

This is not a do or die game but would remove most of the late season drama if the Rebels can pull it off.


Pts per game: LSU 74, Ole Miss 73

Rebounds per game: LSU 39.6, Ole Miss 37.5

Field goal %: LSU 50.7, Ole Miss 48.6

Three pointers made: Ole Miss 6.5, LSU 5.6
