When calamities take place, such as the one we are witnessing in Oxford these days, I can’t help but refer to the master of the macabre, William Shakespeare…

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

HOOVER – It took nearly 3,000 words and more than 15 minutes but Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze did what he could to get his point across.

Just two days removed from more controversy surrounding a program already strife with trouble due to a five-year-old NCAA investigation, Freeze all but proclaimed that Ole Miss football was in good hands.

His opening statement at SEC Media Days on Thursday was the longest of any of the 14 coaches but it had more purpose than any other.
