Ole Miss and Florida are competing for Hugh Freeze's services:
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze is considering an offer to coach at the University of Florida for a base salary in the range of $4.2 to $4.3 million annually, according to multiple sources.
Additional sources confirm the Rebels are attempting to compete with the Gators' offer, pushing Freeze's salary to somewhere near the $4 million range to take compensation out of the question in a potential decision by Freeze between the two schools.
So as happens all too often, fans of opposing teams take to twitter to rib individuals from players to coaches to athletic directors. Here is a bit about the AD from Ole Miss and a fan of Mississippi State.
First the AD tells him since he tweets about Ole Miss so much then perhaps he should consider giving money to the athletic department.
The Miss St fan then makes a veiled threat about meeting face to face.
Bjork then posts of photo of him and a wrestling championship belt and basically says to bring it.
This is the same guy that told the person that took the goal post to bring it by and they would cut it into pieces to have a nice momento. The AD can be fun.
During the Tennessee Mississippi game, Ole Miss intercepted a pass in the middle of the third quarter. A coach tried to trip the player. I get having passion but that is just dirty. It is bad when a player on the bench does something like that but the "leaders" should know better. Does anyone know if there is a fine or anything associated with this type of behavior?

Title says it all, follow the link.
For the lazy- Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork started a kickstarter type campaign to raise funds equivalent to costs for new goalposts and SEC fines. Big donations earned you a piece of the goalpost. He also let the students who took one of the goalposts home off the hook as long as they didn't try and sell it. He raised all of the $75,000 in 3 hours.
Mississippi has indefinitely suspended guard Marshall Henderson for a violation of team rules, the school announced Wednesday.
The suspension is a result of multiple failed drug tests, sources told ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
... and Ole Miss knew that he was undisciplined and had numerous run-ins with the law.
Henderson came to Ole Miss with a history of discipline problems. He was arrested in both 2009 and 2011 and served time in jail after the second arrest because he violated his probation. Ole Miss has said the coaches were aware of Henderson's past when he signed with the program.
I wonder how this is affecting choices of Derrick Green, others...
