TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Hugh Freeze’s face walking into Saturday night’s postgame press conference to talk about his Ole Miss Rebels’ 33-14 setback to No. 1 Alabama in front of 101,821 fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium said everything that needed to be said. It appeared that Freeze was more pleased with how his team played against the vaunted Crimson Tide even before he said as much.
His face also seemed to show disappointment with mistakes made again during the course of the game, such as the 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown turned in by Christion Jones that erased the Rebels’ only lead of the game.
In the end, Freeze was pleased with the effort, the fight and the attitude his Rebels displayed in their first road game in a hostile environment, but he just wanted the game to be a little closer late and he took blame for not allowing that to happen. (October 1, 2012, Page 1B)
