HOOVER, Ala. — Hugh Freeze made an impression in his first trip to the Southeastern Conference’s Media Day on Thursday. Joined by players Donte’ Moncrief, Mike Marry and Charles Sawyer, Freeze fielded questions about his program while outlining details for the future all at the same time.
His first question involved Oxford as a recruiting tool. He then tackled subjects ranging from his new up-tempo offense and academics to the annual meeting with Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl. Mississippi State’s Johnthan Banks said Wednesday at SEC Media Days that the Bulldogs would win a fourth straight game over Ole Miss, or, “The School Up North,” as he calls the Rebels.
Freeze’s answer to the rivalry started with a compliment to MSU coach Dan Mullen and then ended with his thoughts on just how important the game is. (July 20, 2012, Page 6A)
