As an SEC “biased” website, we sure do miss the boat on a lot of action for some of our alma-mater’s and key demo’s. Well yesterday, while all my blogging friends had their dicks in their hands rather than their fingers on the keyboard.. Andy Kennedy, the longest tenured basketball coach in the SEC, and winningest coach in Ole Miss history, has said he will step down as Men’s basketball coach at the end of the season. No indication what his next move will be, or how much money he will inherit from this, but now he has time to focus on beating up cabbies and making videos about his alter-ego Randy.
To be honest, Andy was a great coach, who helped Ole Miss build new facilities, play a sport otherwise forgotten on a beautiful campus, and had a competitive club once or twice in his 12 years (remember Marshall Henderson draggin’ his nuts across the face of everyone in the SEC tourney?).. And hell, he even made the big dance once or twice during this tenure.. All in all, not a bad showing for his time in Oxford. Especially seeing most (if not all) of the coaches and teams that came before him, managed to make one (maybe?) big dance appearance since James Meredith was allowed on campus.
So while I dont care if he was to stay or go, because i don’t have a (bull)dog in the fight… It’s sad that his tenure ended on such a note, especially without a hilarious scandal brought to us by the Mars Law Firm or a junkie’s book club. While the future of OM sports looks great, having SPED-student Ross Bjork overseeing your coaching search… there is only one answer for who will be the next Ole Miss basketball head coach.
Bring back that mother fucker (literally) Hugh Freeze… Not only does he have experience working with mediocre basketball programs (see his tenure as a High School girls coach prior to joining the football elite) and bringing them to relevancy, but it also seems the Rebel fanbase have forgiven Freeze for his adulterous behavior. “He’s just such a model christian who atoned for his shortcomings (pun intended), who made a mistake just like all of God’s children do…” blah blah blah, let’s get back to his resume…He’s a Winner. A Legend. An awful husband…and he’s proven that at the highest level.
After the NCAA concluded their case was a bunch of bullshit, they were hunting fake allegations, and Hugh’s show-cause is nonexistent, he would have no problem filling the role. He already knows how the recruiting process works at Ole Miss, and where to send recruits for their fresh threads. Win-Win right? Well, I agree.. There are very few things in life as enjoyable as a man who preaches the gospel, between stroking the titties of a whore in Tampa.. And I need that clown back on twitter, back on the recruiting trail, and back at home in Oxford.
So Vitter, Bjork, Archie, a useless paid for search committee?, whomever the fuck is in charge of coaching hires please just scratch everyone on your shortlist and go with ol’ reliable.. Reverend Hugh Freeze.
